Dior 500 Point Reward at Sephora!

From the e-mail I received, so the source is
 Hey Everyone!
One of the things I love best about Sephora is their beauty insider program.  This is free to join, and basically where for every dollar you spend you get a point, once you've reached 100 points you can redeem your points for a gift, and once you reach 500 points you can redeem your points for a better gift, and you achieve VIB (very important beauty insider) status.

Today, I just wanted to share my excitement for the new 500 point gift.  Everyone who's read my blog knows that I have a slight obsession with all things Dior, so you can imagine my delight when I received an e-mail telling me that the latest 500 point gift is an exclusive couture-inspired charm bracelet and mini Addict To Life fragrance, which I've been meaning to try.  I happen to have over 500 points in my 'beauty bank' right now, so i can't wait to head down to Sephora and cash in my points for this awesome gift!  Stay tuned for a more in depth review on both the perfume and the bracelet in the next couple weeks!

Fragrance Preview: Vera Wang - Princess Night

Hey Everyone!
Good news for all of you 'Princess' fans out there! Vera Wang is set to debut a new edition of the popular scent this January.

Black vs. White eyeliner

Hey Everyone,
Something that I've been really into lately is defining my lower water line with a nude eye liner.  While applying my eye liner the other day I started thinking about the phases I've gone through with eye liner.  From rimming it corner to corner with rich black pencils, to adding a little pop of color, and now my latest phase in lining, white or nude liner.  Something I've noticed over the years is how black and white eye liner leave such different effects on your eyes, and today I thought i'd compare the two styles of lining for you.

Sephora Makeup Studio Blockbuster

 Hey everyone,
While shopping at Sephora the other day I came across the Sephora brand Makeup Studio Blockbuster palette.  This set contains:

  • 96 Eye shadow shades
  • 84 lip glosses
  • 6 cream eye liners
  • 2 eye liner pencils
  • 3 blushes
  • 1 bronzer
  • 1 mascara
  • 4 makeup applicator brushes
I purchased this for my sister as her christmas present because she's just starting to use makeup and I thought that this would be perfect for her as it includes almost everything she'll need.  It includes both neutral and bright, fun shades and is perfect to create a large array of looks.  It's surprisingly compact, and opens to reveal a vanity type set up, including a mirror.  This retails for $49.50 US and $59.00 CND.  Although the pots are a little small, it's definitely a great value.

If you like this palette, i definitely recommend putting it on your Christmas list, or purchasing it for a family member or friend aged 12+ just starting out with makeup.

UPDATE! I recently published a REVIEW and SWATCH post for this product, so check that out by clicking HERE.

NOTD: Sephora by OPI - 'New Years Red-Solution'

Hey Everyone,
Today's NOTD is 'New Years Red-Solution' from the Sephora by OPI 'Glimmer Wonderland' collection.  This varnish is a metallic golden red with gold micro glitter.  The varnish in the bottle has gold veining, which refused to be captured on camera and doesn't show up on the nails! This nail polish is very opaque, I only applied one coat in the above picture.  I love this color as i've never owned anything similar, and it's absolutely perfect for the holidays!

Are you looking to pick up anything from the 'Glimmer Wonderland' collection?
