Lipstick Queen Luxury Lip Vault for Holiday 2019

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

The makeup vaults are starting to trick in my friends! I’m guilty of picking up the Charlotte Tilbury Glittering Galaxy Of Makeup Magic Beauty Advent Calendar! Did I need it? Probably not. Did I want it? Hells yes!

Someone might have to pull me back from grabbing the Lipstick Queen Luxury Lip Vault that’s available online only at Ulta.com. I have my 20% Off coupon burning a hole in my pocket and this is tempting but I have a few of the items in it so that’s the only thing holding me off a purchase. It’s $98 but with the discount it comes to $78 which makes it a DEAL!

It contains 8 full-size Lipstick Queen Lipsticks in the following shades:

  • Medieval (sheer red)
  • Frog Prince (emerald green lipstick transforms lips to petal pink)
  • Nothing But the Nudes in Hanky Panky (soft rosy brown)
  • Nothing But the Nudes in Spice or Nice (nude)
  • Saint Natural (the color of lips but magnified)
  • Saint Champagne Pink
  • Sinner in Mauve (regal mauve)
  • Jean Queen (a gentle step up from nude)

Most of these retail for $25 each making each shade 50% off retail as you’re getting about $200 worth of lipstick for $98! If you don’t have some of these shades it’s well worth picking up! Jean Queen is a fabulous MLBB (my lips but better) pink=, Nothing But the Nudes Lipstick are truly gorgeous, wearable nudes, and Medieval is a great red! You’re getting some fab shades here.

You can snag the Lipstick Queen Luxury Lip Vault exclusively online at Ulta.

Any makeup vaults you’re looking forward to?

Smashbox Cosmic Celebrations Star Power Face + Eyeshadow Palette Reminds Me I Rewatched Center Stage

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Smashbox Cosmic Celebrations Star Power Face + Eyeshadow Palette for Holiday 2019 launched today and that reminds me I re-watched Center Stage because I’m a dork. When I was 8 my mom watched Romeo and Juliet with me for the first time. My first crush was when I was 5 years old and it was on my friend’s older brother. His name was Max and I’d literally follow him all around the playground. I think that classifies as stalking nowadays! Ha! But my second and my third crush belong to Olivia Hussey and Leonard Whiting. I wanted to be Olivia Hussey when I grew up. She was so beautiful, so perfect, so Juliet! And Leonard Whiting with his captivating eyes and perfect smile! Swoon! I think that film was what made me the bookworm I am today. But the most important moral of this story is my mom knew how deeply I loved the film and took me to see Romeo and Juliet at Lincoln Center a few short months after and I fell in love again but this time with ballet. Growing up I never took a ballet class in my life but I was absolutely obsessed with it and again and again and again I begged my mother to take me to the ballet. I was blessed to see quite a few ballets in my youth including the Nutcracker, Swan Lake, La Bayadere, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and many others in my adult life. I am a very proud American Ballet Theater Golden Circle Member in my older age and I can honestly say the magic of ballet is still as fresh as it was the first time I saw Romeo and Juliet.

Anyway, it’s Fall and in the Fall we watch Center Stage! Does anyone know if this got a Raspberry Award because truly it’s one of the worst movies ever but I do so enjoy it! The Smashbox Cosmic Celebrations Star Power Face + Eyeshadow Palette brought to mind Cosmic Girl by Jamiroquai because Jamiroquai woven through so damn much of that film. By the way who remembers when Jay Kay was on The Naked Chef? Ha! Anyway, every single Fall I sit down and I watch Center Stage because ballet…!!!!

See? You like my long-winded off topic stories dontcha? 🙂

Anyway, SPEAKING of cosmic! We already saw some of the Smashbox Holiday 2019 Collection sets in a prior post I did but the Cosmic Celebrations Star Power Face + Eyeshadow Palette just recently launched! This $39 palette includes 20 matte and shimmer eyeshadows, blushes, highlighters, and bronzers.
