I'm So Over This: Revlon Lipstick Cap

Nudevelvet_1Seriously, Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick, is it really that hard for you to keep your cap on? You're the third lipstick from Revlon Super Lustrous series that I've owned (it has a clear cap at the top) that just won't keep its cap on. And, therefore the third Revlon lipstick that will most likely end up in my garbage. The annoying thing is that I really like the current color I'm using: Nude Velvet 125.

I know you get what you pay for (in this case I got a buy one get one free deal from my local Walgreens), but I think Revlon has been in the business long enough to know how to make a lipstick case that can keep its lid on. And when you lose things as much as I do, I don't need my lipstick manufacturer to make it easier for me.

Sephora Blockbuster Palette: Back in January

Blockbuster As an update to my Sephora Blockbuster Palette post from December 24th, I called Sephora and a salesperson said that they will definitely be restocking the Blockbuster Palette some time in January. The date I've seen online is January 7th.

Looking for some palettes to tide you over until the Sephora Blockbuster Palette is back in stock? How about some suggestions:

Dior Logo Palette for Eyes: "A hot-off-the-runway color collection of six eyeshadows in a portable Dior signature case, complete with a double-ended applicator is the ultimate accessory!Palette includes powder shadows in black shimmer, light pink, matte white, baby blue, peach, and deep aubergine."

Sugar Sugar Cosmetics Best Friend Makeup Palette:  "A mirrored, trifold palette containing 16 eyeshadows, 12 lip glosses, a blush, a bronzer, and a face highlighter, plus all the tools you need to get gorgeous."

PreciousSephora Piiink My Preciiious Palette: If you can get passed the name reminding you of Gollum from The Lord of the Rings, then this kit is for you. "This pretty pink palette has it all (literally).Two slide-apart trays filled with 12 shadows and two blushers open to reveal two more trays loaded with lip gloss, and as if that wasn't enough - the fully-loaded lower compartment holds all the essential accessories and highlighters you'll ever need."

Sephora Blockbuster Palette

Bbsephora If anything would make applying makeup easier, I would imagine it would be the 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.
