NYX Sale

Thanks to the lovely ladies on forums, I came across the NYX brand. It can be found in drugstores or Ulta - at least in my area. But NYX is having a great sale on their website! They're calling NYX Bundles of Joy! There's 9 groups to choose from including lipsticks, eyeshadows and falsies for like 60 - 80% off. Each bundle is limited to 1,000, so it's first come first served.

Bundle 6 is my favorite with 55 chrome shadows for $55!!

New Releases!

Sorry about the lack of updates, but I have been super busy looking for a house for me and my hubby.
Here's what I'm loving that's new out!

Mac's Pret-a-Papier - A huge release with over 20 pieces! My favorites Fold and Tuck l/g and Coral Crepe Paint Pot.

Buxom Travel In Style - I love these lip products! The lipstick lasts at least 5 hours when layered with the matching lipgloss.

Lancome Tropiques Minerale Bamboo Bronzer - At $45 for over 1 oz, this CD size bronzer is the bargain of the summer collections! It is also absolutely beautiful! Too bad it's only an overspray :(

Chantecaille Les Passementeries Trio - As always, Chantecaille makes beautiful palettes and this eye and blush trio is no exception. If it wasn't for the steep price tag - $82 - I would definitely be adding this to my collection.

NARS So Famous Kit

I recently purchased this kit from Sephora. For $44 you get a full size Lipstick Pencil in Bettina, full size blush in Deep Throat, and a travel size Orgasm multiple. I love Orgasm blush and have been dying to try a multiple. This is a great opportunity to do so. You can use the multiple as a lipstick, cheekbone highlighter, browbone highlighter, or even as a creme blush. The lipstick pencil is a matte beige rose color. It does not settle into your lip lines or dry out your lips. The Deep Throat blush is a less sparkly, yet more pink blush. It's a great deal considering the blush and lip pencil is $24 and $26 each!

L'Oreal HiP $5 Sale

CVS has all HiP products for $5 until Easter Sunday. This is a great deal for those who love their pigments and kohl liners, which usually run for $9.99 and up. I'll be checking out my local store tomorrow and post what I find!

Happy Birthday philosophy!

philosophy is having a sale with up to 40% off. With code 3nj425864 you can get 10% off and free shipping with orders over $50. My favorite is their face wash purity made simple. I have combination to dry skin, and it makes my skin balanced. It also does a great job removing makeup!

UD 24/7 liners on sale!

Urban Decay had these great pencil duos with their pencil sharpener. I have been longing for their purple liner and this seems like a good way of getting it. I have both colors already from the other duo. Binge is a great purplish-blue and Burbon is a bronzey color. The Grindhouse sharpener has gotten great reviews with some saying that is the only way to sharpen their liners!

BareCrystals 6 piece set

QVC sent me a preview e-mail on BE's newest color collection. It comes with 3 brushes, 2 eye shadows, 1 eyelining color, mineral veil, blush and my FAVORITE lipgloss in the world, Buxom lippie! The description states that the eyecolors and blush are made with rose quartz. Sounds rich!

  • 0.02 oz gilded quartz eye color, a gilded khaki
  • 0.01 oz smoky quartz liner shadow, a smoky dark chocolate
  • 0.02 oz rose quartz blush in canyon rose

Tarte's Maureen's Favorites Exclusive Value Set

Exclusive to Sephora stores and online, this Tarte set includes a full size Lip Stain and Mascara, as well as travel sizes of eyeshadow, bronzer and cheek stain. I'm sure it will sell out as quickly as Benefit's Legally Bronzed set has, so hurry and jump on board the Bronze Train!

Liberty of London

Tomorrow, MAC's latest release is arriving in stores called Liberty of London. It includes eyeshadows, lipglosses, lipsticks, nail polish, blushes, and beauty powders. I only pre-ordered one eyeshadow in Birds & Berries. I'm trying to save up my money for MAC's later releases Art Supplies and Ready for Beach (I think it's called).
