My Birthday Wish Came True!

Check out what my fabulous sister Lindsay gave me for my birthday (along with a gift card to Ann Taylor LOFT) - the SEPHORA Color Play Palette!! It's kind of like the Crayola 64 color crayon box for makeup-loving grown-up girls. It's got 36 eye shadows, 12 lip glosses, 3 blushes, and a bronzer (and the appropriate, if not minuscule, applicators- you'll want to better ones that you should already have in your makeup bag). I like it because I pretty much stick to neutrals when it comes to eye shadows, but this gives me the chance to be a bit more daring, and I already found out I love the bright teal shade - it really makes my brown eyes pop. The purple shade, eh, not so much, looks more like a bruise - but now I don't have to end up with yet another eye shadow pan gone to waste, along with cost of buying an individual eyeshadow.

Alas, I just saw that it is temporarily out-of-stock on, and at only $22, no wonder. Check out your local Sephora bricks-and-mortar store, they may have some.

DOVE Giveaway!!!

On May 1st, I wrote about the new DOVE Ultimately Visibly Smooth Wild Rose Anti-Perspiring/Deodorant (click here to read). Well, it's been almost 8 weeks since I started using it, and I'm happy to say that overall I'm really pleased with this new deodorant. It has made the hair softer and, surprisingly, I did notice that my underarms do look better and smoother. I've always had issues with that, because as someone who is pale but has dark hair, even when freshly shaven my underarms still didn't look quite hair-free (this was particularly angst-inspiring during my teenage years). But the other day I noticed my underarms looked really good and didn't have the pit-version of the five o'clock shadow going on. Yay!
DOVE wanted to give you the chance to try this new product (if you haven't already!) and is going to give 2 lucky readers a full-size DOVE Ultimately Smooth Wild-Rose Anti-Perspirant/Deodorant, along with coupons for $2 off future purchases of Ulti…

Victoria's Secret Semi-Annual Sale

It's not just bras and panties that are marked down. Check it - makeup and other beauty products on sale for 75% off!! That is one secret I cannot keep! I wasn't planning on stopping in, but had to stop at the mall today to shop for a Father's Day gift for my hubby from our 4 year-old (another gift, actually, to go with the Elmo t-shirt we got for him last week. So cute!). But then I saw the sign for the Semi-Annual Sale and it said makeup on it, so into the store I went. I could have bought more, but I had a hungry child with me, though she did enjoy looking at all the pretty colors of body lotion and shower gels, so that kept her occupied,oh, for about 5 minutes. Anyway, I managed to score 4 products for $12.50. Sweet. And that included 2 - that's right - 2 full-size Very Sexy lipsticks. Uh huh. I also bought Bare Bronze Self Tanning Body Spray with Buriti Oil and an Everything Refresher Spray. The Bare Bronze was the splurge at $4.50. I am digging the Bare Bronze b…
