Review: L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain

L’Oreal has really shocked me, in a good way, with one of their new releases.  Its the L’Oreal Color Caresse Wet Shine Stain.  I was at Ulta and was very intrigued when I saw the new display.  I grabbed 2 colors to give it a try.

When I got to the car I noticed 2 things. The first thing I noticed was that the applicator was virtually the same as the YSL Glossy Stains.  The second thing I noticed was that they smelled virtually the same too. Continue reading Review: L’Oreal Colour Caresse Wet Shine Stain

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.

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. Continue reading Sephora Friends And Family Sale Wish List

Benefit Ultra Plush Glosses

Benefit has added a new gloss to match their best selling boxed blushes. I just love the blushes so, of course, I had to try their namesakes’ matching glosses. Check it out!

The glosses come in squeeze tubes. They are decorated to match their coordinating blush. They all have a cherry sent with a slight cherry flavor. They are slick glosses and have a little stick, but not much at all.

Bella Bomba is a gorgeous rosey red, Coralista is a beautiful hot coral color, Dandelion is a shimmery peach shade, SugarBomb is a mauve shade with shimmer and Dallas is a gorgeous nude. They are all beautiful! Hula is also available.

I purchased these from HSN, but I saw the full sized glosses in Ulta the other day. They retail for $16 each and the travel set retails for $26. A full sized gloss is .05 oz and the travel glosses are.22 ozs each. You can order the full size glosses from www.benefit.com, www.ulta.com, www.sephora.com and www.hsn.com. You can also purchase them at Ulta and Sephora stores.
