Sephora inside JCPenney Exclusive Sets

thumb_IMG_4981_1024-1   thumb_IMG_4976_1024-1‘Tis the season to be jolly, so many holiday gift values have come to town! These sets are perfect for beauty lovers wanting to save a few extra bucks and try out a variety of products one wouldn’t normally buy all at once. Did you know that Sephora inside JCPenney has a few exclusive sets? I wanted to see if they had better deals than the standalone Sephora but I was not able to find them anywhere online! If you want to purchase these sets you have to go directly into the store to view/test/purchase. Good marketing idea JCPenney, but sort of inconvenient for people like me… In this post I tried my best to include product information, price, and size. Just note I may not have precise information for some of them. If you are interested in value sets exclusive to Sephora inside JCPenney please continue reading. Continue reading

This month is my 6th Ipsy bag and it is still fun to receive this hot pink bubbled package.

This month I received a hair mask, face exfoliator, liquid lipstick, cream eyeshadow, and an eye brush. If you are interested in these items or want to know a bit more about what Ipsy offers, continue reading for my mini review and swatches.  Continue reading

Tarte Amazonian Clay Palette

I’ve been wanting to purchase Tarte blushes for the longest time. But for a full size product that is 0.2 oz in size and a price of $28 a blush, it is something to really consider about. It doesn’t help that they have over 15 colors to choose from, they all look so gorgeous it’s so hard to pick 1! Spending $140 plus tax for 5 of them is way beyond my budget. So when Tarte created their ‘Holidaze 2015 Bling It On Blush Palette’ with 4 limited edition shades and 1 permanent color I was stoked. Continue reading
