Kérastase Is Discontinuing Ten Products

Kérastase (my fav hair care line, but way too expensive)is discontinuing ten products. While we are deeply saddened that some of the liquid gold of hair products are disappearing from the market, we are thrilled that they are now on sale. Receive 30 percent off your purchase at the brand's website when you type in "VIP30" at checkout. We suggest the Bain de Force, a fortifying shampoo for weakened or fragile hair and the Bain Aprés-Soleil, a balancing shampoo for sun-exposed hair, both of which are $22.40 each (down from $32). Get other serums, creams, and gels until April 10, when the sale ends and these products are gone forever.

Sugarsweet & Cremesheen Haul

My Sugarsweet lippies came today. And i was both delighted and disappointed. Firstly, i was happy cause the colors are as cute as i though they'd be. I love the packaging. BUT then the disappointment kicked in. These things are TINY. In comparison to the lipglass's, the difference is 1 oz. But, you'd think for the extra 3 + change your shelling out, you'd get more product! I guess not.

Product(s) purchased:
Mac Just Dessert Tricolor Lipglass
Mac Consume Me
Tricolor Lipglass
Mac Simply Delicious
Tricolor Lipglass
Mac Triple-Yum
Tricolor Lipglass
Mac Melt in your Mouth Cremesheen Glass

Sugarsweet Collection online available now!

YAY! It's here. I've haven't been this excited since the Chill collection. It came sooner than i had anticipated (for some reason i thought it was going to be released in April), lame on my part. I know. But I placed my order today, so it should be here shortly.
As i said in the last post, i got most of them, expect one: Tasty. It was just "eh" to me! If i see some swatches that impress me then i might get it. But it wasn't a must have. I really want Aquavert & Sugarshot e/s but I'm go
nna wait on see some swatches to see if their worthwhile buy.

I bought another cremesheen lippy. I'm in love w/the formula, it's my favorite!

NOTD - "True Red plus tips"

Here is my nail of the week. I got the inspiration from floooof's Hello Kitty inspired nails. Click the link to see her take. I don't wear pink nail polish,
so i switched mines up with red nails w/ black and white tips.

This is as much fun as i'm having lately due to the fact that i'm saving all my $$ for Vegas! But really its no biggie cause Mac has only came out w/the Grand Duo collection which is a major bore. I cant wait for the Sugarsweet collection, tho! I want all the lippes.....

Products used:
Avon True Red n/p
Color Club Nail Art Lacquer in White
Color Club Nail Art Lacquer in Black

Pixiwoo has a great vid on edie's makeup. It was kinda the guideline that i used. But not to the tee. I went off a bit, obviously... lol! Aside from that Samantha is a great makeup artist, and i just love watching the vids on the pixiwoo channel. She might be the best on youtube!

Kat Von D e/s in Lucifer (matte black)

Loreal Carbon Black Lineur Intense Felt tip eyeliner
Beautique eyeliner in White (waterline)
