Benefit Stay Put Set Back In Stock!!!

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on February 9, 2011

Were you able to get your hands on the Benefit Stay Put Set this past fall?  Seriously, it sold out in a blink of an eye once the Sephora Friends & Family Sale started.  That’s not surprising considering the Stay Put Set features almost full sized Erase Paste and Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow and a decent deluxe sample size of Stay Don’t Stray for only $10.  It is an absolute steal.  I know a lot of Benefit girls were upset that they had the Stay Put Set in their cart but it sold out before they could purchase it.  If that was you, I have fantabulous news. The Benefit Stay Put Set is back in stock!!!  It still states that this is a limited edition item so who knows how many they have or how long they will last.  I just ordered another set since I am a fan of the Erase Paste and you can’t beat this price.

If you haven’t tried the Erase Paste or the Creaseless Cream Eyeshadow, this is an excellent kit to pick up to give them a try.  You are not going to find such a value anywhere else.  The RSVP shade of eyeshadow is a gorgeous neutral that should flatter most skintypes.  I reach for it at least once a week.

Did you miss out on the Benefit Stay Put Set this past fall or were you lucky enough to get one?  Love it?  Hate it?

Stila Make Me Blush Set

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on January 20, 2011

Remember a few days ago when I posted about Stila’s adorable Make Me Blush palette?  Well after doing a little searching I found this even more adorable Stila Make Me Blush Set on Sephora.com.  The Stila Make Me Blush Set not only features the Make Me Blush Palette but also 2 Stila Lip Glazes in Hugs and Kisses.  Seriously, can you just die?

Now I need another lip gloss like I need a hole in the head.  Honest to God, as I was driving home from Bath & Body Works today with 4 new lip glosses for my stash I thought, “How many lips do I have?  How am I ever going to use up all of the glosses I already have and I just picked up 4 more?!?!”  But how can you resist these cute Hugs and Kisses Lip Glazes?

The Make Me Blush Set is currently listed as not in stock, but I would have to imagine that it’s only a matter of days until it is available.  It will be available for $20.

Are you loving this Make Me Blush Set?  Would you prefer this set or would you rather just pick up the blush itself?

New Urban Decay Products Launch At Sephora

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on January 13, 2011

It looks like the new Urban Decay products are no longer exclusive to UrbanDecay.com.  Most of the new products are up and available for sale.  Some are listed on the site, but are not yet available for purchase.  The much lusted after Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils 15 Year Anniversary Collection.  The Afterglow Glide-On Cheek Tints are also available for purchase.  The 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils are on the site, but not yet available for purchase.  I’m sure they will be available any minute now.

I’m sure it’s a lot more likely that Santa left you a Sephora gift card as opposed to an Urban Decay gift card. So I’m guessing that a lot of people were waiting for these products to drop at Sephora so they could use their gift cards to pick them up.

I’m hoping this means they are available in-store too as I’m really wanting to play around and swatch the Cheek Tints and 24/7 Glide-On Shadow Pencils.  Although, let’s be honest, I don’t really think there’s going to be a shade of shadow that I don’t love!

Have you caved in and picked up 15th Anniversary 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencils Collection yet?  How about the Cheek Tints and 24/7 Shadow Pencils?

JCPenney/Sephora Sweet Steals Sale

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on January 11, 2011

If you have a JCPenney that has a Sephora inside of it nearby you may be interested in hearing about their Sweet Steals Sale.  According to the JCP Facebook page, for a limited time, “save up to 50% on Sephora inside JCPenney’s exclusive Sweet Steals.”  The picture shows Oscar Blandi Lacca Hairspray for $11.50 (was $23), Buxom Lips in Carmen or Isabella for $9 (was $18), and Smashbox Bionic Mascara for $10 (was $19).  These deals are available in-store only.

Unfortunately, I my closest JCPenney doesn’t have a Sephora inside so I won’t be able to check out these deals.  Has anyone been to their Sephora inside JCPenney’s?  What were the other deals?

Where Can I Find The Sephora Blockbuster Palette?

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on January 6, 2011

“Where can I find the Sephora Blockbuster Palette?” and “Is the Sephora Blockbuster Palette still available?” A lot, I mean A LOT, of you have been coming across this blog via these searches. To refresh your memory, the Sephora Blockbuster Palette featured 98 eyeshadows, 70 shiny lip glosses, 6 cream eyeliner, 2 lip liners, 3 eyeliners, a mascara, and 4 applicators. It was released for the holiday season. Unfortunately, it has sold out online. But if you still are trying to get your hands on it, there are some other options. First, I’ve heard from a few people that their local Sephora store still had some in stock. So if you are close to a Sephora, go and check it out. Second, while at the mall this week I saw that my JCPenney still had a ton available. Recall from some of my past posts that my local JCPenney doesn’t have permanent Sephora in it, but instead has a pop-up Sephora section for the holidays. So if you thought that your JCP wouldn’t have the Blockbuster Palette because it doesn’t have a Sephora in it I would still check it out.  I hope this helps anyone who is still hoping to get their hands on this mega palette!

Stila Adventurous In Aspen Travel Girl Palette

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on December 29, 2010

I’m finally getting around to a review for the latest Stila Travel Girl Palette – Adventurous In Aspen.  If you recall, Adventurous In Aspen features four eye shadows in Snow Angel (shimmering heather gray), Icicles (blue), Glisten (shimmering gold), and Ajax (black with gold sparkle) and a Convertible Color in Rosy (rose-pink).  The colors looked stunning online, but how did they do in person?

I have to admit, at first I wasn’t as blown away with these colors as I thought I would be once I got them.  But after playing with them for a while I am actually quite smitten.  With the exception of Snow Angel, the eye shadows are darker shades.  But with a light hand, you can apply them so they appear to be more sheer.  I will say that even though they are darker colors, they are very buildable.  Snow Angel has the most shimmer, but the Glisten and Ajax shades have a very nice shimmer as well.  The Icicles shade is the most matte of the group.  It does come off a little chalkier than the other shades.

In The Sun

I know the point of these palettes is to use the colors together to create a complete look.  But I have been using the darker shades of shadow from this palette with similar lighter shades from other palettes, kits, singles, etc. that I already had.  The pairings have created some very pretty smoky eyes.

As for the Convertible Color, I have to say I was a little disappointed with this one.  Usually I’m a huge fan of Stila Convertible Colors, but this one left a lot to be desired.  First, this CC seemed more oily than others.  I don’t know if you can see it, but if you look at the first picture you can see what looks like condensation on the CC.  When I first tried to swatch the colors the CC color did not appear.  The only thing that was left on my hand was a clear oily residue.  But after a few tries, the Rosy color did start to appear.  It’s almost like I had to get through the oily layer or something.

Out Of The Sun

As for the color itself, the Rosy shade is rather subtle.  It’s nice because you can give your cheeks a fresh and natural glow with one swipe.  Keep applying the buildable CC for a more prominent pink glow.  I think Stila did a good job in pairing a subtle, natural pink with the darker eye colors.

Overall, I was really pleased with the Stila Adventurous In Aspen Travel Palette.  Like the other Travel Girl Palettes, these aren’t top of the line shadows, but they colors are gorgeous and you can create a ton of looks, especially if you think outside the palette and use other items you already have in your beauty stock pile. For $10 I think this is a must have.

Have you picked up the Stila Adventurous In Aspen Travel Girl Palette yet?  Do you plan on picking it up?  What do you think of it?

50% Off Bare Escentuals, Stila, And More At JCPenney-Sephora

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on December 23, 2010

Hey beauty addicts!  Sorry about the lack of posts this week.  Has Christmas snuck up on everyone, or is it just me?  Seriously, I thought I was ahead of the game this year, and then the final week comes and I feel like I have a ton to do.  But anyways, this was such huge news I had to post about it ASAP.  If you have a JC Penney near you, run to it right now!  I was just at my JCP and all of their Bare Ecentuals products and a few of their Stila kits were half off.  Yes!  50% off!  Can you believe it?

My Penney’s doesn’t have a Sephora in it year round.  It just has a Sephora section during the holiday season.  So, that being said, I don’t know if it’s just the Penney’s that have pop-up Sephora sections in them that have this big sale or if the Penney’s that have a Sephora store year round has the sale as well.

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw the sale tags on the products.  Are you ready?  Bare Minerals Shimmer & Shine kit, Bare Escentuals All Wrapped Up kit, Bare Escentuals Buxom Rock Stars kit…all half off!  The Shimmer & Shine kit was $26.99, the All Wrapped Up kit was $16.99, and the Buxom Rock Stars kit was $13.99!!!

As for Stila, the Stila Girl Travel Palettes were half off at $4.99!  How great is that?  The only problem at my store was that all of the Travel Palettes that they had left had been opened up and used by shoppers.

If you’re a fan of Korres products, all of the Korres kits were 35% – 45% off.  I picked up a few kits to break up for gifts during the rest of the year.

Some of the items that were on sale, like the Korres products, had a normal sale sign above them that listed the percentage off and the price the item will be.  But the Bare Escentuals and Stila products just had a little pink price tag on them that had the sale price listed.  So don’t be discouraged if you don’t see a sale sign, just look at the products themselves.

If you’re interested in picking up any of these products, I wouldn’t wait.  There were only 4 Shimmer & Shine kits left when I got to JCP at about 8:30 this morning.  As the word gets out about these sale prices, I suspect things will sell out quickly. 

Oh, and don’t forget that you get Beauty Insider points for purchases at JCP Sephoras too.  Happy Shopping!

Benefit Cosmetics Femme Metale

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on December 15, 2010

The Benefit Cosmetics Femme Metale kit was one of those kits that I know I wanted as soon as I saw it.  I’m already a fan of Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows so I was immediately impressed by the value of this kit.  Originally priced at $38, the Femme Metale kit is the same price as 2 Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows ($19 a piece).  The uniqueness of some of the shades in this collection, particularly the Plum-ing For Gold shade, also had me lusting.  When UPS delivered my order from Sephora and I finally got to play with Femme Metale, my expectations were blown away.

The Femme Metale kit features 3 Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows in Platinum (metallic white), Plum-ing For Golf (metallic plum), and Taupe-aztic (metallic golden beige) and 3 eyeliners in Blinged (silver), Gem-N-Eye (golden olive shimmer), and  Steel Her Date (steal blue shimmer).  All of the colors are new and limited edition to Benefit so no worries about repeating colors here.

Let’s start with the Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows first.  Like I said, I was already a huge fan of Benefit’s Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows, but truthfully, it’s been awhile since I’ve bought one.  That’s simply because they really last a long time!  I don’t know if this is a newer formula or not, but the eyeshadows in Femme Metale seemed a little creamier than the other Benefit cream shadows I have used.  I liked that these seemed creamier and hope that Benefit continues to offer creamier cream shadows.

The colors in this kit are gorgeous.  I said I was most intrigued by Plum-ing For Gold.  If you’ve been reading this blog you know that I am a huge fan of purple shades.  I have a bunch of  purple shadows including a handful of purple cream shadows, but they all tend to be more of the brighter true to purple shades.  This plum shade is definitely a new one in my beauty arsenal.  Use it to put a new twist on a smoky eye. 

When you hear “Platinum” you (or at least I) tend to think of metallicy silver shades.  In Femme Metale, the Platinum shade leans more to the white side than to the silver side.  It has the metallic shimmer to it, but don’t expect this to be a silver shade.  It is a stunning highlighter, but is just as beautiful as lid color.

Taupe-aztic re-ignited a fondness for gold shadows in me.  Don’t be fooled by the word “taupe” in the name.  This is not a boring taupe-beige shade.  It is an exciting shade of gold that you will be happy to wear way past the holiday season.

Like the permanent line of Benefit Creaseless Cream Eyeshadows, all of the shadows in Femme Metale are extremely pigmented and long-lasting.  They also have buildability.  Apply with a light hand for a sheerer look or apply a few swipes for a bold steamy eye look.

Let’s move onto the eyeliners.  Oh my God, the eyeliners!  I LOVE THEM!!!  I am planning a letter writing campaign to Benefit, begging them to introduce a permanent collection of these liners.  Blinged, Gem-N-Eye, and Steel Her Date all have a shimmery metallic effect to them.  The glided on like butter and once they set they weren’t going anywhere.  Seriously, when I swatched these on my arm they were there all day.  Even after I purposely rubbed at them they didn’t budge at all.  If you are a fan of Urban Decay 24/7 liners you will be just as smitten with these. I love them, love them, love them.

Let me just tell you, I was singing the praises of Femme Metale when it was priced at $38.  I told everyone I knew and anyone who complimented my look when I wore Femme Metale that they needed to get their hands on this kit.  Now that Sephora has put this kit on sale for $28, I am at a loss for words.  Seriously, if you haven’t picked up Femme Metale yet, surf on over to Sephora and pick it up immediately.  The value on this quality kit is mind-blowing!

Did you pick up Femme Metale?  Love it?  Hate it?  Let us know!
