Dior Ad Banned In The UK! Those Eyelashes Are Too Long to Girl!!

I’m not going to lie, I laughed a little when I read about the Diorshow New Look mascara ad being banned in the
UK because Natalie Portman’s eyelashes were too long. Who would have thought it?

The UK Advertising Standard’s Authority ruled on October 24th that the Dior ad “must not appear again in its current form”. They found that there were post production techniques used that might mislead consumers about the efficacy of the mascara. Portman’s lashes were enhanced using Photoshop CS5.1. You might wonder why the ASA investigated this particular ad, well I have the answer. The investigation arose out of a complaint filed by L’oreal.

Physician’s Formula Sale: Buy One Get One Free!!

Hey guys! Just a quick blog to let you know that I have returned from Rite Aid and Physician’s Formula eye products and concealers are buy one get one FREE this week!!! You can’t beat that. I do love a true BOGO sale. You can get buy one get one 50% almost every week, but buy one get on free is truly worth celebrating. I picked up the 2 matte palettes that everyone is talking so much about. I’ll haul them in the next few days:) Are you going pick up any Physician’s Formula? Let me know what you get!!

Givenchy Lively Black Color Change Lipstick

I have found something that I will likely be adding to my Sephora VIB sale list. Its a new lipstick by Givenchy called Le Gloss Revelateur De Liv Magic Lipcolor Revealer ($30). Givenchy collaborated with Liv Tyler to create this lipstick. Its black, but it changes with your PH into a sheer berry color that is supposed to be the perfect berry color for you. It has a matching lipgloss too ($27.50)

It is a little pricey, retailing at $30. I don’t think this is a Sephora exclusive as they did not make that claim on their sight. I’m sure you can get it wherever Givenchy is sold.

So do you think you will try it? I’m easily amused so I like things that change color. I also love berry colors so I think this one will probably become part of my collection very soon!! I’ve never tried any of Givenchey’s lipsticks so this one will be a fun way to introduce myself to the brand.

Ulta Let Me Use My 20% Coupon Early!!

Just wanted to let you guys know that I went to Ulta today to do some swatching. I took my 20% off coupon with me to have the sales person verify that we would indeed be able to use it on most high end “prestige” products. Not only did she say “yes” she said you can go ahead and use it today if you want! Great, I would love to!! So I did!!

I’m going to go film the haul for you right now. It will be up later tonight:) This definitely took away from what I might or might not get at the Sephora Friends and Family sale, but at least you will get to see a thing or two early:) Yea!!

Ulta Competing with Sephora Friends and Family Sale?

Ulta sent me a 20% off coupon for one in-store visit. It does not exclude all “prestige” products like most of the coupons do so you will be able to get high end products at 20% off if you are an Ulta Rewards Member. (It does exclude fragrance, Lancome, Clinique, Dermalogica, Benefit Brow Bar Services and clearance merchandise.) The coupon is good Saturday, October 20th through the 27th. If you are a rewards member look for your coupon in the mail.

Sephora Friends And Family Sale Wish List

So its here again, Sephora’s Friends and Family Sale.  Now here is the thing, I’m not sure if VIB’s will be included or if we will get our own 20% sale in November.  I’ve heard conflicting reports about whether or not VIB’s will be able to join in this event.  I haven’t received my coupon code yet, but I will let you know as soon as I know what the heck is going on.  At any rate, if we can’t participate in this event, we will get a VIB date soon and we will be able to get our 20% off then. The Sephora Friends and Family Sale will start October 18, 2012 through the 31st. There are rumors that if VIB’s are allowed to participate they will be able to purchase a day earlier on October 17th.
