Stila special $5 foundations

by cate on October 8, 2011

Stila Cosmetics is giving everyone one last chance to stock up on their discontinued foundations and tinted moisturizers. From now until Tuesday, October 11, 2011, you can buy a bottle for $5 with a maximum of 5 bottles of any one kind per order.  You can place multiple orders if you want more than 5. My personal favorite is the Tinted Moisturizer SPF 15 and I bought a few of the Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer to give it a try.  The good news is that if you fall in love with these, you’ll still be able to get them because a newer version has been released.  The two Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizers are being combined into an SPF 20 and they are now water resistant. The Illuminating  Tinted Moisturizer and Bronze Tinted Moisturizer is the same SPF but will also be water resistant.  So grab the oldies at $5 and the newer versions when you use up your 5 bottles (or 10 or 20…..)

Here is what is in the sale:

  • Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer (SPF 15) – colors available: bare, fair, warm, tone, medium, dark, tan, bronze
  • Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer (SPF 30/oil free) – colors available: light, light 03, medium, medium 0
  • One Step Makeup – colors available: fair, light, tone, dark, tan, warm, deep
  • Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer (SPF 15) – colors available: shade 02
  • Bronzing Tinted Moisturizer – colors available: currently out of stock

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion

by cate on September 26, 2011

Dear Urban Decay,

I am sorry to say that it isn’t me, it is you.  I know we just hit our one year anniversary mark where I discovered your squeeze tube and excitedly brought you home to me, but I must move on.  We had some good times in the beginning but then you let yourself go.  You put on some thickness and made it just about impossible to squeeze you from the tube. Then I gave in and bought you a new pot to call home. It proved to be roomier for a while but then you started to harden and cause pain to my eyelids.  So with sadness, I must say goodbye.  Our relationship was fun while it lasted but I need to move on to another eyeshadow primer.

What’s that smell?

August 7, 2011

I try not to look a gift horse in the mouth. So I happily accept gifts and put them away under my sink until desperate times come to desperate measures.  That time came this week. I used the last of my favorite Double Chocolate Philosophy bath wash and did not have another under the counter. [...]

Found: Replacement pads for the She Uemura Eyelash Curler

July 3, 2011

Last November, I made the sad announcement about the discontinuance of the She Uemura eyelash curler from retail outlets in the United States (internet ordering is still available).  I was devastated as I really liked the curler but it only lasts so long before the pads wear out and then you have to throw the [...]

Stila Tinted Moisturizer – grab it before its gone!

April 21, 2011

I’ve been an avid fan of Stila’s Sheer Color Tinted Moisturizer for years.

Everything I could ever want. [...]

It is sample testing time!

January 20, 2011

I am super duper excited because I will be moving next month and with moving comes cleaning up and cleaning out.  I attacked the area under my bathroom sink over the weekend and put together a monster basket of free samples I’ve collected over the past two years living here. I’ve broken into a few [...]

Beauty Review: Sephora Eye Lash Curler

November 10, 2010

I learned about a sad passing a few months ago. The She Uemura Eye Lash Curler was pulled from the US Market place. Currently it is only being sold overseas and on the exclusive She Uemura US website. Of course, I wouldn’t learn this piece of information before my eye lash curler died. Nope, I learned [...]

Budget Alternative to MoroccanOil

September 15, 2010

I wrote about MoroccanOil earlier this summer in a piece called “Have You Tried MoroccanOil Yet?”  In that piece, I praised the discovery of MoroccanOil as a blessing to my hair as it has made it healthier and more manageable. One thing I was cautious about was the price tag. While you can find the [...]
