You ever play “Fill the Online Shopping Cart”?
It’s one of my favorite games. I’ve been playing it over at the BECCA website this afternoon. They’re running a Friends & Family sale. Just started this morning. Get 20% off any $50 purchase at beccacosmetics.com/us using promo code SPRINGFF14.
The sale ends next Tuesday (June 3, at midnight PST), so you still have time to play “Fill the Online Shopping Cart” if you’re interested.
I haven’t pulled the trigger yet on anything, but I have filled, emptied, and then filled my cart again with staples like Ever-Matte Shine Proof Foundation, while I do a little more research on some things, like the new BECCA Beach Tint Shimmer Souffles ($27 each).
I ran over to Sephora to have a look at them and swatch a couple things.
GURL, these look really cute. The marbled pattern on the pots totally reminds me of the Hourglass Ambient Blushes. Instead of a powder, though, the Shimmer Souffles have a cream formula.
Kind of genius, really.
In a way, it’s like you’re getting four things in every pot — a powder to add a pop of color to your cheeks, a stain for staying power, an illuminating highlighter for that summer glow, and a cream formula for a flawless finish.
Mmm… Guava, papaya and lychee… So juicy.
I’m only seeing two of the shades available now on the BECCA website — Lychee/Opal (bubblegum pink with a golden opal) and Fig/Opal (nude with a golden opal).
Papaya/Topaz (a bright tangerine red with a golden bronze), Watermelon/Moonstone (a coral red with a pale gold), Guava/Moonstone (a coral with a pale gold) and Raspberry/Opal (a raspberry with a golden opal) are listed as unavailable, but you know how that goes. Things are gone one minute and back the next.
Speaking of great juicy things, there were a LOT more of these Trader Joe’s Soft and Juicy Mandarins yesterday before I snapped this pic.
I brought these home from TJ’s a few days ago, and OMG! So delicious… They’re like dried fruit crack! I have to portion them out and then hide the bag somewhere I can’t see it because I could easily eat all of them in one sitting.
If you haven’t had them before, you need to rectify that situation ASAP, because they’re hella good. That’s all I’m sayin’.
