OK, I am going to have an "off topic" post here, but I have to admit, I'm obsessed with the Twilight Saga, and stayed up tonight specifically to watch the NEW MOON trailer on the MTV Movie Awards...
Summer's here again, so that means there are tons of new products to try, drugstore and high end. When I was at Walmart before I left on vacation I stumbled across the Loreal Extreme Volume Collagen mascara (in extreme black). I had read some anticipation of this product on the Internet, so I figured I'd give it a try. At around $7, it was right about the same price as the Carbon Black Voluminous I've been using (and love), which is running pretty low. The package is quite pretty - a very thick and durable black tube covered in lucite, it looks very high end for the price.
Good afternoon all! I tell you, it's hard to dig out from a vacation, followed by a holiday weekend. Now that I've been able to play catchup, I wanted to post some great buys I found at Victoria's Secret the other day.
Definitely not the place I think to buy makeup, Victoria's Secret does have some good little buys in the store. They recently have discontinued their "Very Sexy" line, and as a result, it is all 75% off! I stumbled across this while looking for some of their body lotion, and ended up buying two eyeshadows and two eyeliners, below. The eyeshadows are Lights Out (a deep sparkly forest green) and Spin (a deep sparkly royal blue) and the two eyeliners are Sexy Slate/Silvery and Black Satin/Extra Olive.
I will follow up shortly with some looks using these colors so you can actually see them on.
So, as you all know, I live and love mineral makeup, especially Bare Minerals. If there any of you ladies out there who have been hesitant to try, Sephora has a fantastic deal right now on a starter kit, plus a full size of their famous Buxom Lips lipgloss in Charity for $60.00!!
Not only can you pick the shades that will work for you here, but this item ships free as well! What a deal! You got four colors for your face - two foundations to mix together or use individually to create your perfect shade, but you get the famous Warmth and Mineral Veil as well. Also, three full size brushes, which I love and some of their Prime Time face primer. Add the DVD to show you how to apply, and this set has everything you need to get started with Bare Escentauls!
TotalBeauty.com has run an issue on the top 10 best Skin Cities, and it is quite interesting!
Number 10 is Cheyenne, Wyoming....
Where do you fall on the list? I certainly don't - guess all the corn fields don't help the skin here in good old Indiana!
On the other hand, what are the things you can do to help keep your skin healthy?! How about avoiding these Seven Deadly Skin Sins....
1. No smoking
2. No tanning
3. Use sun protection...
I am down in sunny Florida this week, and when this came across my email, it couldn't have been more appropriate! What a great little pack, especially for a weekend vacation out in the sun somewhere. Sephora has put together a limited edition package, the Sephora Sun Safety Kit. Not only does this come with sunscreen, but also with bronzer, foundation, lotions, and anything else you might need to protect you from the harmful rays.
What a great little set for only $22! And an even better way to try some items out that you have been looking at for some time!
