Bare Escentuals Sale at Sephora- 20 percent off

The get-started kits are now only $48. Sale ends Nov. 30th. This nine piece set is usually $60. I haven't been a huge fan of mineral makeup because it just seems to cake up on my very dry skin but I have friends who love it. Mineral makeup provides lots more coverage and can be so fun to blend. If you already use Bare Escentuals, let me know what you like about it. If you don't already use it, this set is a great starter set. Enjoy!

Each kit includes and get free-shipping by entering promo code GETSTARTED at checkout.
- 2 x 0.06 oz bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation (see shades below)
- 0.06 All Over Face Color in Warmth (in all kits)

Too Faced- Family and Friends 20% off

Just discovered Too Faced is having sale- it ends 11/17 at midnight- code is:
10GIFT. I highly recommend the primed and poreless face primer- unlike Smashbox or Makeup Forever primers, this one is tinted a light nude color. You can wear it under bronzers and foundation powders, or alone. I've heard people usually just wear it by itself then add blush for that finishing look. It also contains antioxidants and retinol, making it a healthy product for your skin too. The retinol will help firm the skin.

I am officially done with my makeup shopping for 2010-2011. My favorite buy so far is my Bobbie Brown blush. Will post looks soon. Did you buy anything during Sephora's VIB sale? I would love to know and see what you think of your new products!

Wet N' Wild Haul

Along with cheap lip-liners from my local mall in Sacramento (that being Florin Mall) during my high school days, I have fond memories of the Wet N' Wild makeup line. Back in the days, it was all about brown lipsticks and black eyeliners- cheap and intense for serious high school dances. Well, Wet N' Wild has come out with some new products and I picked up a bunch today at Walgreens because they were 50% off. Everything shown here only cost me about $50. Now, I already love the eye shadows- the six color palette in Vanity being my favorite so far.

Here is my test: Every Monday is date night. Tonight, we went to see "Hereafter." A real tear-jerker directed by one of my favorite directors- Clint Eastwood. A very lovely film- I highly recommend it. Made me think about my dad and where he is now. It's a film that focuses on the lives of three individuals who deal with death in different ways: George (Matt Damon) is a blue-collar American who plays a "psychic." Marie (Cecile De France), a French journalist, has a near-death experience when she is caught in tsunami. And Marcus, a London schoolboy, who loses the person closest to him. I cried tons to say the least. But more importantly, how did my Wet N' Wild eyeliner hold up? Well, the photo of me at the top is me at 11:30 p.m., getting ready for bed. No touch-up after crying at the movies. Eye-liner is still intact- and this is NOT even the waterproof liner either.

Also, the lipstick I am wearing is to die for- I wore 901BP (very pinky shade) with lip shimmer in 102P. It turned out very "cute-Barbie" without being too gaudy the way some pink lipsticks turn out. Anywhoooo- as I was saying, even after I cried at this movie, the liner stayed put. This is a good sign. So I recommend you pick up one of the lovely colors and try it for yourself.
