Holy @#$! Beauty Clearance At JCPenney

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on February 15, 2011

***Update ***  Some have asked which fragrances of Korres I found.  They had large duos of body butter and shower gel in Basil Lemon and Jasmine.  There was also a Korres kit that had 5 fragrances of body butter and 5 matching shower gels in Basil Lemon, Jasmine, Guava, Fig, and Japanese Rose.  I believe the individual body butter in the Happy Holidays box was Japanese Rose, but it’s not in front of me at the moment so I can’t say for sure.  Hope this helps!

I have mentioned the unbelievable deals that I have been finding at my local JCPenney since the end of the holiday season. If you’ve missed them, my local JCP doesn’t have a permanent Sephora inside of it. During the holiday season, a small Sephora section popped up with some of the must have holiday kits that Sephora sells from Bare Escentuals, Korres, Stila, Tokidoki, Sephora, Kat Von D, and more. After Christmas, the items that they had left began to be marked down. A few weeks ago, I posted that the items that they had left were marked down to half off. I really didn’t think they would go lower than that. Let me just tell you, they went lower. They went unbelievably lower. They went holy @#$! lower!

I let out a noticable gasp when I saw that Korres kits that were $29 and $35 originally were marked $2.97!!!  An individual Korres Body Butter in a Happy Holidays box was $0.47!!!  The Tokidoki Robbery Palette that was $49 was marked $2.97!!!  The Bare Escentuals Shimmer & Shine kit that was $54 was marked $2.97!!!  I grabbed one of those black mesh shopping totes and started throwing stuff in as fast as I could!  The BE Shimmer & Shine kit had to have been a customer return because I haven’t seen one of these at this JCP since around Christmas.  Everything was still sealed.

I’m almost embarrassed to admit how much I bought.  Let me preface that by saying that my Mom works at a department store and my sister is a waitress.  They both like to give a little something to all of their co-workers for birthdays and Christmas and whatnot.  So 90% of what I picked up will be used for gifts.  I will also donate some items to a women’s domestic violence center.  With that being said, I picked up about 50 items that should have totaled $844.  My total was…drumroll, please…$69.12!!!  I wouldn’t have been able to pick up 2 of the larger Korres gift sets for that price!  Oh, I didn’t even clear the shelf.  There were still a bunch of products left.

I’ve said it a bunch of times before, but now you really have to listen to me, if your JCPenney doesn’t have a permanent Sephora in it but had a pop-up section during the holidays, run to it right now and see if they have any items left.

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?

50% Off Sephora Make-Up Kits At JCPenney

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on January 21, 2011

I completely forgot to post this yesterday.  While I was at the mall, hoarding Bath & Body Works products, I ran over to JCPenney to see if they still had Sephora items available.  Remember, my local JCPenney does not have a permanent Sephora inside, it only has a small pop-up section during the holidays.  Surprisingly, they still had some stuff left.  All of the make-up and bath & body kits were half off.  My store still had kits from Bare Escentuals, Tokidoki, Kat Von D, Korres, Cargo, and Pacifica available.  They had the Tokidoki Glitter Eyeliner Set for $12.50, the Bare Escentuals Buxom Rock Stars for $14.99 (I can’t believe they still had these!), Korres kits ranging from $2.50 to $17.50 (these were an absolute steal in my opinion), the Tokidoki Robbery Palette for $24.50, the Kat Vod D Tattoo Chronicles Palette for $27.50, and Cargo bronzers for $2.50.  I know they had more, but that’s all I can remember.

In addition to these make-up kits, they also had a bunch of fragrance gift sets.  Those were not marked down.  It looked like they were going to try and pawn those off at full price to Valentine’s Day gift shoppers.

If you have a JCPenney nearby that doesn’t have a permanent Sephora in it you should definitely check it out.  There were some really good deals to be had.

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  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?

Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush

Posted by anotherbeautyblogger on January 19, 2011

I’m really excited about this one.  I am a huge fan of Tarte Cheek Stains, but really, aren’t most people who became fans of Tarte when they were first popping up on the scene?  Maureen Kelly and Tarte really created a winner with their Cheek Stains.  Everyone of the shades gives me such a natural glow.  But sometimes I’m not feeling the Tarte Cheek Stains.  Most of the shades of Cheek Stains leave a slightly dewy look.  Now, it’s not that I don’t like the dewy look, but sometimes I don’t want that dewy look, you know what I mean?  On those days I have to reach for a powder blush.  Now Tarte offers us the best of both worlds!  Meet the new Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush.

The new Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is a powder blush infused with the nutrient-rich Amazonian clay that Tarte is becoming famous for using.  The shades are inspired by Tarte’s beloved Cheek Stains.  They include Amused (bright pink), Blissful (warm peach), Blushing Bride (plumy rose), Dollface (light pink), Exposed (nude), Flush (deep berry), Natural Beauty (muted strawberry red), Tipsy (coral).  The blush is housed in a pretty pink compact.  It has also been awarded Sephora’s natural seal.

From Tarte:  “Those with dry skin will benefit from the clay’s nourishing and hydrating properties, which naturally restore skin’s moisture. Combination skin types can rely on its ability to zero in on skin concerns and deliver benefits to restore complexion harmony. The result? Blush that wears better, longer, and truer!”

If you’re a Tarte fan, especially a Tarte Cheek Stain fan, you can’t tell me you’re not excited about these!  I’m hoping that these are in-store at Sephora so that I can go and play with them.  I think I’m going to wait until I go to the store and swatch these blushes before I pick one up.  God knows that I have most of the shades of Cheek Stains that inspired these blushes so it would be too hard to just pick one to order.  Hopefully, after I sample and swatch at the store, the decision will be easier.

The new Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush is currently available at  It also says that it’s a Sephora exclusive.  It’s priced at $25 for a 0.2 oz. compact.

What do you think?  Are you a fan of Tarte Cheek Stains?  Will you be picking up the Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Blush?

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  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?

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?
