Tarte The Jewelry Box Review, Swatches, Photos

This year’s variation of Tarte’s mega palette, The Jewelry Box, features a whopping 32 Full Size Eyeshadows plus other wonderful goodies. I kinda dub Tarte the founding sister of HUGE Holiday Palettes. While every other brand was doing gift sets or festive themed makeup, Tarte was busy releasing super sized palettes to sink our teeth in. Needless to say the rest of the makeup world soon caught the bug and started releasing their own versions of these monsters palettes but we should all bow our heads in respect that Tarte was the first brand to start this great Holiday tradition.

I believe their Holiday Palette is now in its fourth or fifth generation, I know I own at least three of these bad boys and I can recall a year or two I didn’t indulge. Go right ahead and correct me if I’m wrong. I haven’t really gotten tired of collecting them since they are 1. such a great value and 2. Tarte goes for the shock value every year and just when you think you’ve seen it all, they go and do something extra special which is what The Jewerly Box Palette felt like to me.

It was the same idea and design but it was a new as well with alot more packaged into one very tiny box! Who doesn’t like a palette that features everything and the kitchen sink and allows it to fit into a chunky little box about the size of a music CD? That’s awesomeness people.

Did you haul the Tarte Jewelry Box?

Stila Holiday Lipglaze Gift Set 2010 Review, Swatches, Photos

I happen to be one for worshiping at the shrine of the Stila Holiday Lipglaze Gift Sets. I buy them almost every year for myself, for friends, for family, as stocking stuffers, for Secret Santa events, even for my mail girl!

It’s just such an incredible value at $25 plus the formula just rocks on a good Lipglaze.

However, this year, I was an ickle disappointed…

Dear Stila,

You rock!

I recently got an e-mail from Stila telling me that I had $50 in Star Rewards available and that I should use them before I lose them as the New Year approaches. I headed onto the site and low and behold the new Stila E! Live from the Red Carpet Palettes are available for $25 each!

w00t! I got all three and only had to pay for one thanks to my Star Rewards! Thanks Stila!

I’ll review them when they arrive but for now have you seen ’em!?
