Sephora Blockbuster Palette
Sephora's description: "A triple-tiered palette for eyes, face, and lips, plus all the tools you need to put together endless looks. Who says you can't have it all? This sleek, mirrored, palette is loaded with 64 eyeshadows, 32 lip colors, seven cheek colors, one translucent shimmer powder, four double-ended shadow applicators, two blush brushes, and two lip brushes."
I read about it at my hair stylist's studio during November (when they were doing a heavy push of the thing and it was in every beauty magazine I read) and I bought it the next time I visited Sephora.
I have to say that I love the thing because of the opportunities it gives me. I feel like the size of it and the selection makes me want to take my time and be an artist. And, I know that technically a really good eye can be drawn with it because a Sephora makeup person applied it on me at the store. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to reproduce the results. There also seems to be a bit too many shimmery, rather than matte colors. I do like the neutral shades, however.
I haven't found much use for the lipsticks because I don't like applying lipsticks with a makeup brush. Does anyone have any advice about that?
But more importantly, is Sephora still even making the Blockbuster Palette? It's nowhere to be found online, the Sephora site seems to have discontinued it. That's a real shame.
Updated on 12/28: Sephora says that they will be restocking the Blockbuster Palette some time in January. The date I've seen online is January 7th.
