Smashbox Holiday Collection 2010 Smashbox Wish Holiday Collection 2010 Smashbox Burlesque Beauty Collection

Anyone remember the Smashbox Wish Holiday Collection from last year?

Looks like Smashbox has revived it and is re-releasing it this year with new shades.

Last year Smashbox donated $1 from every purchase of the Wish Holiday Collection to the Children’s Miracle Network which is a non-profit organization that provides medical care, lifesaving research, and on-going education to sick and injured children. I’m not sure if this year’s collection will feature the same charity event but I imagine it will.

One thing that did capture my eye was the new Smashbox Burlesque Beauty Collection which is a four piece set that isn’t part of the Wish theme. It looks cute and I’m somewhat hopeful it might lead to other color releases or a possible Burlesque Color Collection of some sort.

There’s also Smashbox The Gold List which is a value set that includes some interesting golden themed makeup products for the Holiday!

Jump ahead!


Sephora Color Wand For Lips

So let’s not write off Sephora’s Cosmetics Collection just yet.

I know, I know. I rant about it constantly but Sephora Cosmetics and I have a special love/hate relationship. We’re cool like that.

For example I really like the Sephora Color Wand For Lips…..

Glutton for punishment?

DuWop Keep Blushing

My relationship with DuWop spans quite a few years and in all that time I can’t recall them every having blush.

Let’s step back.

DuWop Blushbooster has been a part of the line for about 4 to 5 years now however I’ve never been tempted to indulge because it just looks a little too frosty plus it’s supposed to work on top of your normal blush (or on it’s own but from swatching I’d say it’s a tad too sheer to work as such). One day I’m trying this out but that day isn’t today.

Today I’m all about the fact that DuWop has finally heard my prayers and introduced Keep Blushing.

I wanna try.

NYC New York Color Cosmetics Berry Bloom Collection Review, Swatches, Photos

Ahh beauty budget girls gather round and heck even my high enders come on down.

When you think of roses you may think Spring and that’s exactly when the MAC Rose Romance Collection launched. It was one of my favorite collections as of late from the brand because of some of the interesting products released with it such as the Just a Pinch Gel. The fragrance, the makeup, and just everything about the collection was really exciting to me.

Flash forward to Fall 2010 and NYC New York Color Cosmetics Berry Bloom Collection has launched.’s not Spring and it is beauty on a budget so one wonders do you need any of it? Some of the more snobbish makeup users will beg a big no on this however those watching their wallets will find this is a beautiful little collection that warrants a haul. Shades aren’t particularly Fall but believe it or not they manage to work quite well for a warmer look.

Wanna see?
