Shopping online with free upgraded shipping!

So convenient. I love it. I love free shipping codes, I love the little holiday emails, etc. I admit to having a secret hobby of oohing and ahhing over the goodies. 🙂

Order by the 20th, and Sephora will upgrade your shipping for free, so you get your goodies by the 24th. W00T!!

The Bare Escentuals Starter Kit is one of my favorite gift ideas for female family members.
This complete kit includes all the basic products to achieve radiant skin:
-Two shades of bareMinerals SPF 15 Foundation to ensure the perfect match. (Size: 0.06 oz)
-bareVitamins Skin Rev-er Upper: can be applied daily before applying bareMinerals to rev up your skin
-Mineral Veil: provides a translucent finishing touch to your makeup, infusing it with softness and adding a flawless finish. (Size: 0.06 oz)
-Warmth All Over Face Color: add an instant sun-kissed glow to skin where the sun would naturally touch. (Size: 0.06 oz)
-Flawless Application Brush
-Full Coverage Kabuki Brush
-Maximum Coverage Concealer Brush
-Bonus! A How-to DVD for tried and true beauty tips from Leslie Blodgett, Bare Escentuals CEO.

I’ve never found foundation I love more than the BE. I’ve got dry skin, so I use a primer under it (either Photofinish or That Gal!) and then use a good soft brush and lots of circular motions.

Speaking of Smashbox Photofinish Primer…

What a fantastic kit for a great price…
Set includes a Stila Lip Glaze in Brown Sugar, Make Up For Ever Diamond Shadow in Diamond Black 307, Smashbox Mini Travel Photo Finish Foundation Primer in Original, Smashbox O-GLOW, Dior Diorshow Mascara in Black 090, Sephora Blush Me! Mono in Abricot Plaisir 6, all in a chic black sequined Sephora Brand clutch.

FOR FIFTY NINE DOLLARS!!! Is that great or what? The Photofinish Primer, Dior Show, and O-Glow make it so worth it to me. I may buy one for my sister and get one for myself. We can be twinzies. It’s a great deal.

Philosophy Hope in a Jar is one of my favorite personal products. I’ve become somewhat anal about my skincare and making sure my skin is hydrated and taken care of. Pushing plenty9 will do that to ya!
The original formula of Hope In A Jar was originally created for the medical market and is a world-renowned skin cream. For years, plastic surgeons have been recommending this formula to patients in pursuit of younger, healthier skin. Results can be seen and felt within days – a healthy, rosy glow to the skin that doesn’t require makeup or cover up. –
All I can say about this stuff is I love it. Anyone on your list with a skincare fetish like mine would be thrilled to receive this in their stocking.

Not Sephora related…

Look at the perfect gift for the makeup diva in your life. This traincase is fantastic, for a fantastic price…

Ok, I admit I wasn’t excited about this collection…but the packaging is SO DIFFERENT from anything MAC has done that I can recall that I’m kind of excited about it.

Ok let me just say this: There are more than a couple of things I’m feening for from this collection. I’ve swatched Parrot to try to show you just just how fantastic the color really is, I hope it meets everyone else’s expectations during this release. I’ll be buying that.

I haven’t any experience with the older MAC shadows, so I’m excited seeing colors like Daisychain and Clue. I may have to let my wallet breath a bit now that I’m *almost* through Christmas shopping. Poor wallet.

ANYWAY…supposedly this collection is meant to bring back and repromote colors that we all love but missed out on, but with a slight tweak. MAC switched formulas around just a bit to give them an extra ‘push’.

I can’t wait to see how it all looks!
