Word on the street is that Sephora is having their annual Friends & Family sale which gives 20% off of everything online only.  You have to visit this website and enter your email address to get the secret code.

So you get 20% off a single purchase, online at Sephora.com, from Oct 20 – Nov 2, 2011.  The code can only be used once, so choose wisely!

I am looking at some Illamasqua polishes, mascara, skincare products!  What are you getting?

How do you tame your brows?

So, lately I’ve been all about my eyebrows.  Typically I get them threaded and I think the eyebrows really frame the face.  You could be wearing not a stitch of makeup and still look presentable.  And it really makes a difference if you are wearing makeup and your brows are done.  I’m not talking highly manicured, just a little grooming is more than enough.  I’ve been on the lookout for brow products that complete the look.

Anyway, I recently made a little haul of NYX products on beautyjoint.com.  I had never tried this site before, but I saw that a few bloggers had good experiences with them.  Plus the fact, they were cheaper than buying off of the NYX website.  And shipping was $1, so…..

I wanted to try the NYX Eyebrow Shaper for a while now.  Sometimes I just want to hold my brows in place, no filling in, no colour.

Semi Precious haul & swatches!!

[twitter-follow screen_name=’NoireTropicalB’]

Here are a few swatches of what I hauled from M.A.C.’s Semi Precious collection.  I am a true sucka for their mineralized eye shadows.  For whatever reason, the texture and quality is never consistent from collection to collection.  Sometimes they are flaky, chunky, not heavily pigmented and often they look pretty in the pan than on the lid.  So I had to make sure to choose wisely.

Across the collection of eye shadows, they have varying levels of pigmentation and many of colours are not unique.  They were all very smooth in texture and have varying amounts of marbling so that two eye shadow pans could give slightly different colours.

I loved the jewelled themed collection and was of course drawn to the darker colours.

I first got Dark Indulgence, which is a dark, sooty emerald green melanged with black.

M.A.C. Surf Baby Haul and swatches!

Here’s my mini haul! As per usual, M.A.C. brings out a summer collection that I love.  Large collection, with many components, so there is something for everyone.  Very bronze and very bright.

Anyway, did not get much, just some must-haves for me!  Still thinking about some the lipsticks and the stick bronzers (although they remind me of the NARS multiples).
