Philosophy QVC Today’s Special Value December 4th 2010

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on November 30, 2010

***UPDATE*** Now it looks like the Philosophy TSV is available for 4 Easy Pays of $14.99 instead of 3 Easy Pays of $19.99.  Is it me, or has QVC been doing this switcheroo with Easy Pay quantities a lot lately?

Can you believe it’s already going to be December tomorrow?  I’ve said it before, but seriously, why didn’t the year move so fast when I was in school???  The good thing about December coming (besides Santa, Christmas cookies, and decorations) is that it brings a new Philosophy Today’s Special Value on QVC.  The good news…you don’t have to wait until December 4th to get your hands on the new Philosophy TSV.  It’s already available for order on QVC.com.

Just in time for Christmas, Philosophy’s latest TSV is a fragrance set.  The Philosophy Kiss Of Grace 5-piece Deluxe Fragrance Collection features (1) 2 oz. spray fragrance, (1) 5 oz. tube of perfumed body butter, (1) 16 oz. bottle of 3-in-1 shampoo,bath & shower gel, (1) 0.09 oz. solid fragrance stick, (1) 0.5 oz. tube of flavored lip shine, all in a lovely gift box with fabric bow.  It is available in your choice of Amazing Grace, Pure Grace, or Falling In Love.  It has a Today’s Special Value Price of $59.98 with 3 Easy Pays of $19.99.  It has a retail value of $132.00 and a QVC price of $72.50.

The packaging for this kit appears to be a special holiday packaging.  I think it looks pretty spiffy

Let me just tell you, I already put my order in for the Falling In Love set.  Falling In Love is one of my most favorite fragrances ever.  The price for the amount of product that you receive is great and the Easy Pay offer seals the deal for me.

I’m curious to see what the Lip Shine is flavored like.  Although this is just my guess, I don’t think it would taste like the fragrances.  Who would want lip gloss that tastes like perfume?  Maybe something minty?  I guess we’ll have to wait and see.  I’m also interested in testing out the solid fragrance stick.  I have never tried any Philosophy fragrance in the solid form.

If you have a Philosophy girl in your life, I think this would make a great Christmas gift for her…that is, if she isn’t already snagging one for herself!  If you have been wanting to try a Philosophy fragrance out, this is also a great kit to do so with.  You get all of the staple products.

Will you be ordering the Philosophy QVC Today’s Special Value?  What fragrance will you be getting?

Estee Lauder And Coach Collection

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on November 29, 2010

A few weeks ago, I posted about the collaboration between Estee Lauder and Coach.  The beauty world is buzzing about the Coach make-up bags that are being paired up with Estee Lauder cosmetics.  I know that some department stores were offering these collections for Black Friday.  If you missed out on Black Friday, no worries.  EsteeLauder.com is offering the Estee Lauder and Coach Collection for $35 with any Estee Lauder fragrance purchase.   The collection is worth over $200 and features Golden Eye & Face Compact (New Pure Color EyeShadow in Ivory Slipper, Hot Cinnamon and Amethyst Spark, plus Estée Lauder Signature Blush in Nude Rose), 2 Pure Color Long Lasting Lipsticks (full-size, in Sugar Honey and Pinkberry), Pure Color Gloss (Wired Copper), Artist’s Eye Pencils (SoftSmudge Black), 2 Deluxe Retractable Makeup Brushes (Powder and Eyeshadow), and the Coach make-up bag.

I think the $35 price tag is a great deal.  Most Coach fans would gladly fork over $35 for a Coach make-up bag and here you not only get the bag but a bunch of cosmetics as well.  Of course, it may not be such a great deal if you are not a fan of any of the Estee Lauder fragrances since you have to pick one up in order to get the Coach collection.

The Estee Lauder and Coach Collection is available while supplies last.

Will you be picking up the Estee Lauder and Coach Collection?  Which Estee Lauder fragrance did you select?

Urban Deacy 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils 15 Year Anniversary Collection Available Now!

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on November 29, 2010

As Seen On The Urban Decay Facebook Page!

***UPDATE***The  Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils 15 Year Anniversary Collection is available now until noon PSD!  It is priced at $92.00 with a value of $264.00.  Yikes!  It is a deal, but I will be passing on this one for now.

Did you know that UD has been around for 15 years??? Crazyness, right? To celebrate their 15th anniversary, Urban Decay will be releasing special 15th anniversary collection pieces during 2011. It’s only a month away, but if that’s too long for you don’t fret, tomorrow (that would be Monday, November 29th) Urban Decay is giving you a sneak peek at their first anniversary collection. Yes, tomorrow (Cyber Monday) you’ll have to opportunity to pick up the Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils 15 Year Anniversary Collection before it goes on sale to the general public in January 2011. This sneak preview will be available between and 10 am – 2 pm PST.

From Urban Decay – “Let’s get this party started! This mouth-watering set of FIFTEEN 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils is the first of four anniversary products we’ll offer throughout 2011. Get yours TODAY before they go on sale to the public in January, and stay tuned for more excitement to come!”

Urban Decay, I love you and your 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils, but how many does a girl need? Seriously, even a beauty addict like me is feeling 24/7 overload lately. Anyone else feeling this way? Don’t get me wrong, I love love love the 24/7 pencils, but my stash is just bursting at the seams with these pencils. I even passed on the holiday kit because I already had multiples of many of the colors.

No clue as to what the price on this kit is going to be. I will be checking it out tomorrow, but unless it’s an absolute steal, I will most likely be passing on this one. Unless I grow a few more sets of eyes, I’ve got enough 24/7 pencils to last me for a while.

What do you think of the new Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils 15 Year Anniversary Collection? Will you be picking it up?

For Cyber Monday, StilaCosmetics.com will be holding another Warehouse Sale.  If it’s anything like their Warehouse Sale a few months ago there will be plenty of deals to be had.  You’ll be able to save up to 80% on your favorite Stila products starting Monday, November 29th thru Friday, December 3rd.  During the last Warehouse Sale, I don’t think you were able to use any other discounts or anything like that.  The invite to the Cyber Monday Warehouse Sale doesn’t say anything about other discounts so I guess we’ll have to see what the deal is tomorrow.  Happy Shopping!

Bare Escentuals All Wrapped Up

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on November 5, 2010

From the moment I first saw Bare Escentuals All Wrapped Up kit I knew I had to have it.  The colors were bold and beautiful.  I didn’t even have to see it in person to know that I would love it.  I show restraint and waited until the Friends & Family Sale at Sephora.  Finally, All Wrapped Up is my hands, or on my hands since I was swatching.

All Wrapped Up features 6 0.01 oz eyecolors in The Gift (bronze copper glimmer), Garland (champagne nude sheen), Bauble (bright amethyst glimmer), Mistletoe (light lemongrass glimmer), Tinsel (sapphire twilight glimmer), and Present (melon sorbet matte).  As you can see, there is a mixture of finishes in this collection.

Let me just tell you, if I was in love with this collection when I saw it online, then I am orgasmic over it now that I have finally seen it in person.  Seriously, I can’t even tell you how much I love the colors in this kit.  They are amazing.  I love that Leslie and the folks at Bare Minerals decided to offer a variety of finishes in this kit.  Of course, I’m also excited that a majority of the eye shadows are glimmers because let’s face it, I love the shimmer.

In The Sun

No Sun

For once in my life I am a little speechless.  I don’t know what else to say about All Wrapped Up other than it’s absolutely gorgeous and don’t hesitate to get it!  Not only will it be perfect for the holiday season, it will be a kit you will be reaching for the entire year.  Let me just tell you, I love this kit so much that I’m already gearing up to pick up a second so that I don’t run out.

Bare Escentuals All Wrapped Up is available at a number of retailers and is priced at $34. 

I have to say, I have been blown away by Bare Minerals’ holiday collection this year.  Seriously, I don’t think I have ever picked up so many different Bare Escentuals pieces/collections/kits in such a short period of time. What do you think?
