If you want to get a hold of some Stila eyeshadows for a really good price, I suggest you go to sephora.com right now and buy the trio palette that has the award winning Kitten in it! I couldn't resist because I so badly want to have Kitten and it's way cheaper than getting it on its own for $18.
Here is a little breakdown:
The Palette: 3 eyeshadows x 0.107 oz=$10
One Eyeshadow Pan: 0.09 oz=$18
Grab yours before it's gone!

Really debating on if I should purchase the Clarisonic or not. There are such great reviews on it on the web, whether it's from Makeupalley, Sephora, or QVC. I have always wanted it but I just never got to purchasing it because it is so expensive! I just want to see if it lives up to its hype and helps out my skin. I'm leaning more towards getting it but I do have a guilty purchase conscience. Any of you have it and care to share your story?

I had my day off today and decided to go to the Carlsbad Premium Outlets to check out a few things I was eyeing for awhile. I did some damage! I got some Kenneth Cole peep toe pumps for work, the new Reebok Easytone shoes, and a MAC mineralize blush from the Cosmetics Company Outlet (CCO). The CCO pretty much carries a bunch of lines such as MAC, Estee Lauder, Bobbi Brown, Prescriptives, etc. for less expensive. At MAC stores and Nordstrom's, the mineralize blush goes for $21 but I just bought mine for $15.75. It's relatively cheaper and I love it because you can find a lot of limited edition products there too. Check out this link to see if there is one near you.
The mineralize blush I got is called Earth to Earth from the Grand Duo Collection. The pan is a duo with one half a pretty bronzy peach color and the other half has purple swirls/veins. I thought it looked really dark in the packaging but I fell in love when I swatched it. It's such a perfect shade for the summer because it really gives that sunkissed glow. I believe this product is multi-purpose too and I could definitely use it as an eyeshadow.

Any of you allergic to specific makeup items? I just bought a Jane blush from the drugstore because the color was pretty and it was inexpensive. I have been using it for almost a week now and I just recently noticed that my face has broken out with little red bumps. I haven't had this happen to me in such a long time but I'm pretty sure it's the blush. The last time I had this reaction was with a NYX and Revlon blush. I guess I'm done with drugstore brand blushes. I'm a bit bummed because I love saving money :(
I'll stick with my Everyday Minerals (even though it turns orange by the end of the day) and my Flirt! Cosmetics blush.
