I got a press kit a few days ago for the entire Hard Candy Collection available now at Walmart. I haven’t been over to Walmart as of yet to take a peep…you know the Muse you have to drag her to that place kicking and screaming. Anyway like I said haven’t had a look at the items yet but whoa…after seeing the photos I was kicked over. It’s a HUGE selection of stuff. I think the line is actually bigger now that it’s at Walmart than it was when Hard Candy was a brand all it’s own.
From the looks of it they have over 25 items in a huge array of colors. They even have baked shadows and blushes now! The prices are $6 to $8 bucks each…so cheap. I’m very eager to try out some of it. I got a few items to test out but I want to head to the evil empire and snag some more as truly some bits look incredibly good. I felt like the line was actually more appealing now than it was prior to the merger.
Some folk may feel it’s a bit teen-ish but I thought they did a great job revamping it.
Anyway. ‘Nuff babble from me. Check out some pictures after the jump!
Oi! Drugstore Drive-By time! Aside from Halloween decorations and candy (nom, nom!), a whole load of makeup goodies are on sale next week at your local drugstore.
Check ‘em after the jump!
The Saks Fifth Avenue Friends and Family event starts today. Personally I think it’s best to head in store if you have a Saks hanging around your neighborhood but you can also indulge online as well.
The event is merely three days starting today and ending October 18. The promo code is FRIENDS2 which entitles you to 10% off beauty and fragrance purchases. I’m not a fashion or accessory blog but I will say that the code also entitles you to 20% Off Jewelry and 25% off clothes, shoes, etc….
Many probably won’t indulge with Sephora’s FF event taking place shortly. However, if your a fan of bigger, posher brands such as Bobbi Brown, Chanetecaille, etc….this is a rather ideal time to haul your favs and craves.
Feel free to share your want lists. I haven’t made up my mind yet. I have a cart full of stuff I do not need….so diseased.
If the Muse was an eye liner girl she’d be in such deep trouble right now.
Well, hello have you seen the Make Up For Ever Aqua Eyes Collector Set. Dude, it’s like one of those 500 pack colored pencil sets I had when I was a kid. It’s valued at a whopping $425 bucks!
What’s inside? 25…count ‘em….25….I really like saying 25. 25 Make Up For Ever Aqua Eye Liners! And by the way they are all full size. No mini size here!
Is that absurd? Turns out the kit is $225 and comes housed in a collectible tin, 100 of which are numbered and signed by Dany Sanz creator of MUFE.
So let’s do the math. Humor me I like math.
25 Aqua Eye Liners purchased separately equals $425 each. This set is $249 which breaks down each to around $10 bucks each. But…but…but…FF is on the way….let’s go ahead and do the leg work on the discount…that’s 20% off for a total of around $200 bucks divided by 25 pencils equals $8 bucks or so a liner.
Hmmmm with or without the 20% off it’s still a really killer deal but I’m not sure if I’m willing to dish out $200 dollars on the spot. Oh the agonizing choices one has to make in the name of cosmetics.
Here’s a list of shades you’ll get:
- Champagne 23L
- Fuchsia Pink 13L
- Purple 11L
- Black Purple 6L
- Shimmering Plum 4L
- Burgandy 18L
- Pearly Brown 2L
- Light Brown 19L
- Light Taupe 24L
- Bronze Green 5L
- Bronze 10L
- Gold 9L
- Pistachio 17L
- Green 16L
- Forest Green 20L
- Turquoise 7L
- Blue With Green Highlights 12L
- Majorelle Blue 15L
- Iridescent Navy Blue 3L
- Mat Black 0L
- Star Black 1L
- Dark Grey 21L
- Grey 22L
- Silver 8L
- White 14L
God that’s such a bloody delicious line up. I imagine if I was more into eye liners I’d haul but for now I’m saying it’s a skip for me.
How about you?
Would you buy it?
Not so much?
Available now at Sephora.
How’s tricks? Hope everyone is bright eyed and bushy tailed this morning. I’m so NOT a morning person so don’t even get me in on a discussion about the AM. Tonight I’m off to see this incredibly cheesy interactive Rocky Horror Picture Show. Every been to one? It’s where people dress up and throw rice at the screen during the wedding scene and other weird stuff. Loves it! I swear I can play a part in the movie as I know all the lines and songs. If you happen to be there I’ll be in the middle row with a few geeky friends flanking my side singing DAMMIT JANET I LOVE YOU!
Wanna Muse together?
I noticed MAC Magic, Mirth, and Mischief has hit the scene. w00t! I’m probably going to try to get to a counter later this weekend. The time has kinda come and gone for me to run to the nearest counter and haul like the end of MAC is coming soon. I’m sorta off the crack that is MAC but I’ll definitely be having a peeky to see what appeals.
Which brings me to today’s Musings of the Day!
What will you be hauling from MAC Magic, Mirth, and Mischief?
Tell the Muse and jump ahead for her list!
