Outstanding October Hauls!!
It's midnight in New York and you know what that means... it's October!! I don't care if I'm in California, I'm still making this post hahaha.    I started my haul at CVS because my sister had $10 rewards for beauty and I used that towards lipsticks for my kit.    I got Wet n Wild lipsticks in Sugar Plum Fairy, Wine Room, and Mauve Outta Here. I also got a Milani lipstick in High Voltage. I paid $2 for 4 lipsticks!   I went to Ulta to pick up NYX Dark Circle Corrector and the Essence Lipstick (4th one above) in Wear Berries   THEN, I went to Sephora to pick up a free deluxe sample of Bare Minerals lipstick in Speak Your Mind and my MUFE Birthday gift!     PS my birthday is October 18 hehe

Black Friday 2014 Anticipation / Information from 2013
It hit me a few days ago that Black Friday 2014 would be here soon!!! I happen to just love love love Black Friday shopping.   I am not a morning person, a total night owl actually, so I've enjoyed that the last couple of years there have been more stores opening late on Thursday. (I don't support folks having to work on Thanksgiving just so I can shop but I won't wake up at 3 am to be at a store for a 4 am opening - I'd rather just stay up and hit a midnight opening - just a personal preference).   Last year Sephora branded their Black Friday deals as "Dealtopia". As in years past, they had some amazing $10 deals. Some were online only and some were available both in store and on-line. On-line, we were limited to two items of each deal, but many of us made multiple orders. In-store, some locations held to the two item limit of each deal, and some didn't and they let you buy more. What is always the great mystery for on-line shopping is the exact time that the deals will go live. I want to say that it was midnight EST time. Last year, the online shopping was a bit of a nightmare. Anyone remember entering the "queue" where you were advised not to hit the back-button, or refresh, else you'd lose your place in line? With some patience, many of us were able to find our desired deals.   My local store opened at midnight and when I got there at about 11:45, I was about the 15th person in line. There was only one "aggressive" shopper, who was behind me, but went kinda crazy when the doors opened. She knew what she wanted and by gosh, she wasn't afraid to nudge you out of the way to get there! Other than that, it was crazy busy but nothing horrible. They had many of the deals sitting on the main front display, but they also had some employees who had rolling carts with some of the items. Finding that "one" item you just had to have was tricky if it wasn't on the main display.   To get an idea of what the deals were in 2013, I recommend googling "Musings of a Muse Black Friday 2013" to see the great details she posted including great pictures. Captured below is the list of deals from 2013, as found on The Musings of a Muse site.   In addition, I just took a photo of the ones I bought last year that I still haven't used or given away. I think my favorite $10 item was the Josie Maran set, which included her Bare Naked Nail Wipes (20 count) and a 1 oz. Whipped Argan Oil Hand Cream in Vanilla Apricot. I think the "hot" item was the Philosophy Purity wash. What was your favorite?   Note that Sephora did most of their Black Friday advertising using Pinterest and Facebook. I do not remember how many days before Black Friday they posted what the deals would be. Do any of you remember?   All I know is that I am really excited for 2014!!! Anyone else have some tips/lessons learned from 2013?   2013 List   Lorac Fan Favorite Duo Wei Pore Purifying & Brightening Collection Philosophy Limited Edition Purity Made Simple 12oz Tocca Florence Travel Fragrance Duo Bite Lush Lip Trio Sephora Collection Sparklers Brush Set Clean Fragrance Trio Bliss Soapy Suds Body Wash and Bubble Bath (16 oz Lemon Sage, Vanilla Bergamot, Red Orange and White Pepper, or Grapefruit and Aloe) Too Faced Better Than Sex Amazing Eyes Set (Too Faced Eyeliner and Better Than Sex Mascara) Stila Artful Eye Collector’s Edition Vol. 1 Stila Artful Eye Collector’s Palette Vol. 2 Stila Artful Eye Collector’s Palette Vol. 3 Stila Collage of Color Lip & Cheek Palette Tokyomilk Takeout Kate Somerville Dermal Quench Liquid Lift Advanced Wrinkle Treatment (0.50 oz) Josie Maran Argan Hand Healers Set Vita Liberata Rich Face + Mini Mitt Duo Living Proof Gift Set (1 oz Full Conditioner, Full Shampoo, Prime Style Extender, and 0.5 oz Full Thickening Cream) Formula X Asap Real Nail Lacquer Duo Pack Ole Henriksen Clean Sweep Duo (frican Red Tea Foaming Cleanser and Truth To Go Cleansing Wipes) Boscia Pore Perfection Set (1oz Black Mask, 1 Pore Strip) The Art of Shaving The 4 Elements of the Perfect Shave Set Smashbox Heat Wave Lip Gloss Set Buxom Full On Lipstick in Havana Alterna Caviar Moisture Trio Buxom Curtain Call Set Nails Inc Crystaltastic Nails Lavanila The Healthy Deodorant Vanilla Grapefruit Mini Bare Minerals Enchanting Eyes Tarte Little Miracles Best Selling Essentials

Beauty Advent Calendars 2014
I am crazy about advent calendars! (I have several wooden ones that I fill with my parents' and brother's favorite candies each December.)    So last holiday season, when I learned that there were Beauty calendars, filled with skincare, makeup, body, and fragrance products, I flipped! Last year, there was a memorable Benefit advent calendar. (Let's not even talk about this year's over-priced version.)    This year, there are even more advent calendars being offered, but most of them are exclusive to the U.K. I have seen U.K. bloggers post about Jo Malone, Body Shop, L'Occitane and Yankee Candle advent calendars--just to name a few. (You can google "best beauty advent calendars" to see all the awesome goodness.)   I just bought the QVC version!    I hope that the few advent calendars offered in the U.S. are really popular and are snapped up this year, so that retailers will understand the demand. Then hopefully, we will get more such beauty calendars available for U.S. customers in upcoming years.    Who else is crazy about these?       Jo Malone Advent (2014) L'Occitane Advent (2014) Body Shop Advent (2014) QVC Advent (2014)   Selfridges (UK department store) Advent (2014)

What is your favorite eye makeup remover?
I have used Lancome's Bi Facial with reasonably good results, but I was hoping I could find something that removed the mascara with fewer swipes (hoping to minimize damage to the eye area).  I tried MUFE Sens Eyes and it really burned the skin around my eyes, which was a disappointment, since the cream seemed to be more effective than the liquid formulas I've been using.  I want something without mineral oil as I have had problems with that before.  Any suggestions?

In case anyone was wondering about the packaging on this, here are some photos with my Naked2 palette for comparison.

Bronzer/Contour for yellow-toned skin
Hey!   I was just wondering if anyone had recommendations for a bronzer that could be used also as a contour for yellow-toned skin? I have light skin, and in summer, light-medium skin.    I have tried the NARS Laguna Bronzer, however, I can't really see much difference with it, because it's rather light. I've also tried The Body Shop Honey Bronzer in 2, but that is waaay too pink, and looks dirty and orange.   Thanks everyone! I appreciate it!

Laure Mercier Artist Palette - Typo Fail
So normally getting a palette with a misspelled label isn't a huge deal. I mean, it does tweak my Virgo need for order, and it does irk when it's from a high-end brand.   This misprint of "Deep Night", though, skates a little too close to the racial slur line for comfort. Obviously it's not intentional, but I wonder how many of these slipped through quality control.     I'm debating whether to exchange it, or just try adding the letters in myself with liquid paper or something.

Torn between Naked1 and Naked2
I have been searching for a good neutral palette for quite some time now and I have been trying to talk myself out of getting one of these palettes, but I have decided to take the plunge and get one of them. However, I am torn between the two of them. I personally think that cooler toned shadows fit my skin tone better (I sort of have yellowish undertones) so after some suggestions I have been leaning towards the naked 2. But there are some colors I really cannot stand in the palette (tease, pistol, foxy), and I know those shadows would go to waste. In the naked1 palette the only color I cannot stand is gunmetal (and maybe toasted would end up being a dislike), but because the colors are so warm I'm afraid I would get it and realize that none of the shadows are good for me, which would lead me to not reaching for it. Lastly, I was looking at swatches of the naked2 palette and this photo really caught my eye.  The colors look sooo pigmented and nice, but in some other photos I have seen the colors look completely different and not as nice. Does this photo accurately show the true colors of the naked2 palette?   Anyway, I'm basically town between the two and I would love if anyone has some good feedback on this! Thanks!

Super awesome samples!
I feel like I needed to post a picture because I just opened my box (finally caved and bought the Tarte Amazonian shadow pallet) and I have never been happier with my samples! I got lucky and got the Dior Baume and the REN renewal mask! I felt like I got two extra deluxe samples without using a code for them…you just made my day, Sephora!   The Dior sample is packaged so cute, the paper is has quilted texture with a little magnetic closure, like a super nice blotting paper case. I think I might pop some business cards in this one and reuse it!   *and apparently all posts automatically go into the Acne category now, even if we change it? Weird.*

Makeup nostalgia
Recently I was purging my collection when I came across these two items. They're the ones that have made it through all of my purges no matter how ruthless. Why? Because they have sentimental value.   The Lancôme Color Design Artist Palette (2007-2008) was the first "high end" palette I ever bought and playing with it is really what got me into high end makeup. I also had a ridiculous amount of fun while wearing this palette and discovered both the purple and the navy smokey eye as my signature night time "go-to" look.   The L'Oréal Laetitia Casta "look" combo (2007) is what really got me into thinking about "looks" and how everything goes together.   What sentimental makeup items are you guys hanging on to?
