Sephora Collection Endless Color Blockbuster Palette

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on August 25, 2010

The latest Sephora Blockbuster Palette has been released.  As per usual, this palette is not lacking when it comes to product.  The Blockbuster Palette boasts 98 eyeshadows, 70 shiny lip glosses, 6 cream eyeliner, 2 lip liners, 3 eyeliners, a mascara, and 4 applicators…okay maybe it’s lacking in the applicators department.  Seriously, 4 applicators for 98 eyeshadows???  It’s like when the McDonald’s drive-thru people give you 2 packets of ketchup for 6 orders of fries.  It’s all housed in a case made to look like a Sephora shopping bag.  This is the biggest Blockbuster Palette ever.  Can you believe it’s only been five years since the Blockbuster Palette was first introduced?  The retail value of this palette is $435 which makes the price of $48 an absolute steal.  Oh, and how adorable is the packaging?  Nothing gets me as excited as when I see that beautiful Sephora shopping bag!  I’m contemplating picking up the Blockbuster Palette just because of the packaging!

There’s also an added bonus to picking up the Sephora Blockbuster Palette this year.  From the Sephora website:  “Each 2010 SEPHORA COLLECTION Collector’s Edition Makeup Palette includes a silver ticket that automatically enters you in the SEPHORA COLLECTION Silver Ticket Sweepstakes. Hang on to it and visit on January 1, 2011 to see if you have the winning silver ticket. Whoever has it will receive the Grand Prize, a $1,000 Sephora shopping spree, one-year supply of SEPHORA COLLECTION products, and more.”

If you’re not planning on picking up the Blockbuster Palette but still want a crack at the Silver Ticket Sweepstakes it’s all good.  “To receive a ticket without purchase, send a self-addressed stamped envelope to Silver Ticket Request, Sephora USA, Inc., 525 Market St., 32nd Fl., SF, CA 94105 to be received by 12/15/10 (VT and Canadian residents may omit return postage).”

A quick word about Sephora brand cosmetics.  The Sephora brand itself is not what I would consider high-end cosmetics.  They are not horrible, but not everyone loves them.  The staying power is not as great as say MAC or NARS.  Some people also find the formula of the shadows to be a little rough.  Just something to keep in mind if you are not familiar with the brand.
