NEW Wet n Wild Fergie Fall 2014 Limited Edition Fergie Beauty University Palette

Well apparently this is a new tradition! The 2014 Wet n Wild Fergie Limited Edition Fergie Kit has landed at Walgreens almost exactly one year to the day since my post about last year's kit. This year's LE Fergie kit is definitely different from last year's, but I hope that the quality is on-par with last year's since I really enjoyed last year's kit (see my full review of last year's kit HERE).

Just like last year's kit, this is a Walgreens-exclusive, limited edition product. I have tons of photos to share with you today from two lovely readers who just spotted this kit at their local Walgreens stores this week. Take a look!

(retail: $30, exclusively at Walgreens)

NOTE: If this is anything like last year's kit, Walgreens should be running a promotion/sale soon where you'll be able to get it at a reduced price (and maybe earn some points). If I remember correctly, last year's kit went on sale a few times for $19.99, and then during Thanksgiving there was Walgreens in-ad coupon to get it for 50% off ($15). Just like last year's kit, there are only a few of these in the display (four, I believe) but I do think that Walgreens will replenish when the display is empty (I think that's what happened last year).

Spotted at Target: NEW Clairol Hair Food Hair Care Collection

So I was at Target the other day and stumbled across a brand new line of hair care by Clairol called Hair Food. I purchased one product from this new line (see below), which I'll review as soon as I'm done testing, but I thought you might like to see the entire line, in case you haven't spotted this new collection in person yet!

Spotted: e.l.f. Disney Good vs. Evil Beauty Book and Brush Collection

Just last week, I showed you the Kiss Disney Good vs. Evil Nail Art Kits that are now popping up at Walgreens. I think I mentioned in that post that I didn't know if e.l.f. was coming out with a Disney Good vs. Evil collection too, but guess what? THEY DID!

Many thanks to reader Nola for this one one. Nola spotted the e.l.f. Disney Good vs. Evil Collection (Maleficent vs. Aurora/Briar Rose) at her Walgreens this week and was nice enough to share some pics with us. Take a look!

HOT TIP: Kat Von D Cosmetics on Clearance at Sephora

Thanks to several of you for the tip that many Kat Von D cosmetics are now on clearance at Sephora stores. As of the time of this post, this appears to be an in-store only clearance, as I didn't see anything on clearance when I checked the Sephora site a moment ago. That could obviously change though!

Here's a breakdown of everything I know so far...

Review & Swatches: Sinful Colors Halloween 2014 Limited Edition Glitters in Mystery Moonshine and Cauldron Couture

As we all know, Sinful Colors nail polishes are on sale this week at Walgreens for $0.99 each (now through 9/20), so I wanted to show you some swatches of the two Halloween 2014 shades I purchased (there are a total three new limited edition Halloween shades this year, which you can view here). Also, if you can't find this display at your Walgreens, it's also popping up at Target. I found the display in the Halloween candy aisle at my Target last weekend, which is some evil, yet genius, marketing if you ask me.

Wet n Wild Releases Official App for Android and iPhone

Oh how far they've come! I remember back in 1989 when Wet n Wild was a small drugstore brand with "crazy" blue nail polish (so unheard of back then). Well times have changed and, in case you haven't heard, Wet n Wild now has an official app for both Android and iPhone, and they're running their first national campaign (with a commercial airing during this Monday's The Voice premiere on NBC) in support of the new app. Keep reading for all of the details...

The Wednesday Question

How hot is too hot to wear makeup? Is it ever so hot that you skip wearing makeup altogether?

If it is 100 degrees or more, as it's been for the past week+ here in San Diego, I wear nothing when I'm at home, and only the bare, bare minimum when I'm not at home. We're talking BB cream and a bit of blush, and that's it. I figure, everyone's miserable when it's this hot, and no one's feeling at their most glamorous, so no one's expectations are that high, right? Well at least that's my philosophy!

PS: Speaking of the heat, I want to let know that I plan to return to regular blogging as soon as this heat wave ends. You may have noticed that I haven't been doing many reviews or even swatches and first impressions lately, and that is 100% due to the extreme heat. I live in an older home with no air conditioning, and it's been about 100-105 inside my house during the day, only dropping to about 90 at night. I haven't had a heat rash in years, but I got one on my forearms this week and it's been torture to sit and type at the computer, let alone swatch things on my hands or arms. And on that note, I'm off to apply more calamine to my poor, itchy arms, and call it a night. Hopefully the weather cools down soon (it's supposed to by the weekend). Hope those of you in Southern California are staying cool!

It's Back: LORAC Pro Palette 2 + PRO Mascara + Mini Primer for $22 SHIPPED

UPDATE: Well that was fast. This is apparently out of stock AGAIN. If you're interested in this deal, keep checking the link below...hopefully they'll restock soon (and I will of course do another post if I hear that's been restocked!).

Thanks so much to readers Chris Feral and honeypancake88 for the heads-up that the LORAC PRO Palette 2 deal is back in stock at HSN! If you didn't get the Too Faced deal I shared yesterday because you were waiting for THIS deal to come back in stock, it's your lucky day!

NOTE: The last time this offer was available, it was on extended delivery with an October 2nd delivery date. I do not see that mentioned in the new listing, so hopefully that means you won't have to wait as long this time around (although at this price, it's definitely worth waiting for!).
