Review & Swatches: Revlon Seychelles Sand (from the Limited Edition Haute Rocks Collection)

When I first posted about the new Revlon Limited Edition Haute Rocks Collection of "Pebbled Texture" polishes (click here for reader swatches of all eight shades), I knew that there was one shade in particular that was an absolute must-have for me personally. I found this shade, Seychelles Sand, at CVS last week and I have been in love, love, love with it ever since.

I realize that this is probably not a glitter that's for everyone, but something about it speaks to me, so I can't resist showing it to you, swatched several different ways! Take a look...

Update on the Benefit deal at HSN

My deepest apologies for my previous post about this offer at HSN. I was under the impression that you could use the HSN code (same code that you CAN use on the Too Faced Chocolate Bar deal, which is still available). But thanks to several of you for pointing out that you CANNOT use codes on the Today's Specials. I couldn't test this myself since I'm not a new HSN customer, but I thought it was applicable based on what I was told.

I make every effort to post about good deals the moment I hear about that so that everyone can take advantage of them before they disappear, but sometimes errors occur. I'm so sorry!

I'm still leaving this offer up at the original price, since even at $42 + free shipping it is still a great deal ($91 value):

New items added to Urban Decay sale page

Many thanks to readers Ana and Unknown for this tip! Urban Decay has added new goodies to their sale page--here are some highlights:

You can view these deals plus everything else that's on sale here. They're down to just four shades left on the Glide-On Shadow Pencils ($5 each)!

Remember that you get everyday free shipping on orders over $50, no code required. 

Thanks again, Ana and Unknown, for the great tip!

Free shipping at (no minimum order required)

In addition to the awesome Chocolate Bar Palette deal I posted about earlier, here's another offer that might come in handy if you've been wanting just one or two items from Too Faced lately:

Now through THURSDAY, 4/17, at 11:59PM Pacific, receive free shipping on ALL ORDERS on the Too Faced website, no minimum order required and no code required. This is nice for those of you who don't want to order $50+ worth of merchandise to qualify for the usual everyday free shipping.

I have heard from readers who were able to use the code BUKI2 to receive a free Flatbuki Brush ($15) with any mascara purchase, but this code did not work for me when I tried it earlier today (actually, none of the current codes on RetailMeNot worked for me--maybe you'll have better luck with one of them!).

But, it's always nice to peruse the Too Faced Sale Page when they run free shipping offers, just to get some extra savings.

Thanks to everyone who took the time to share this free shipping tip with us!

There's a NEW CODE, and the palette & primer are back in stock! If you missed out on this deal the first time, here's your chance to grab it!

The Wednesday Question

If you could magically reduce the price of ONE drugstore beauty product by 50% (forever!), which product would it be?

I would have to go with a product that isn't already very inexpensive, so that rules out products by Wet n Wild, NYC and Jordana. I would also want to choose a product that I use quite regularly. So I'm going to go with my holy grail CoverGirl Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation. It regularly retails for around $9.99 - $12.99 depending on where you buy it, so to be able to ALWAYS have it for around $5 would be amazing (even better when I have CG coupons!). 

Review: Tony Moly Fruit Princess Gloss in Strawberry

I get lots of requests to review more Asian beauty products, and I'm thrilled to honor those requests since I adore Asian beauty products and I own lots of them! So today I thought I'd share with you my most recent purchase from the popular Korean beauty brand, Tony Moly.

For those of us in the US, you can purchase Tony Moly Fruit Princess Lipglosses at Urban Outfitters for $12 each, as well as places like eBay, Amazon, and sites that specialize in Korean beauty brands (momomango, etc.). I personally found this lipgloss locally at a Korean market, but if you don't have any Korean markets near you, you can definitely get these online, even if you live outside of Korea.  So let's take a look at this little cutie!

Review: Boum Vanille Sa Pomme d'Amour Eau de Parfum by Jeanne Arthes

A few weeks ago, I spotted a Boum fragrance display at Walgreens and I may or may not have let out a little squeal when I spotted it. Boum fragrances, by Jeanne Arthes, aren't that easy to come by at the drugstore (at least in my area) and I was so delighted to find three Boum eau de parfums in a little display at Walgreens for $9.99 each (3.3 oz). I wouldn't say these are obscure French perfumes, but I just don't see them everyday in stores here in the US (you can easily order them online).

After much debating between the three fragrances in the display (I'll show you pic of the display at the end of this post), Vanille Sa Pomme d'Amour came home with me. Let's take a look!

Review: EcoTools Skin Perfecting Brush for BB/CC Creams

I love BB/CC creams and I love EcoTools. So when EcoTools released a brush specifically for BB/CC creams earlier this year, I had to try it. I've been using this brush for a few months now, and I'm ready to give you my verdict!
