I love the smell of a good bargain in the morning…
It smells like…victory!
LOL! I’m pretty sure that’s not how that actual line goes, seeing as how Apocalypse Now is one of my top five favorite films of all time, but it is how I feel about Tarteâ€™s new Treat Yourself to Gorgeous Gifts From the Amazon Collection kit.
Talk about great stocking stuffer material. I love breaking apart holiday kits to use as stocking stuffers, and this $49.98 one (a $496 value) looks perfect for that.
But itâ€™s a qvc.com exclusive, and the sale only lasts a few more hours (sale ends tonight, November 28, 2012)!
Itâ€™s conveniently divided into three separate, easily giftable sets, the first with four Cashmere Waterproof Gliding Liners, the second with four Maracuja Divine Shine Lipglosses and the third with 20 Amazonian Clay Eye Shadows.
As gifts, the sets work out to about $16 each, and would ya look at that? — they already look gift-wrapped!
Tarte has a thing for sheer products, especially on darker skin tones like mine. Of the pieces here, I think the buttery soft liners pack the most pigment.
Speaking of the liners, theyâ€™re a little like Tabs in that theyâ€™re afraid of water…as in lines. They do just fine on my lash line but canâ€™t stand my water line at all.
If your interest is piqued, pounce now! The kit is only available for a few more hours.
AVAILABILITY: Just a few more hours! The sale ends tonight, November 28, on qvc.com.
MAKEUP AND BEAUTY BLOG RATING: B+ (a great value on a good selection of sheer, cruelty-free products)
My mid-week book report
Last night I finally finished the book Iâ€™ve been reading, Before Ever After, by Samantha Sotto.
It sat on my Kindle for a few weeks before I got around to it, and then when I started reading it a few weeks back, it seemed a little slow. Every night Iâ€™d pick it up and fall asleep within a few pages, LOL!
Not that itâ€™s boring at all… Just a little slow.
10-second summary: after a series of supernatural events, a widow suspects that her dead husband may, in fact, be alive, and she embarks upon a trip to learn the truth.
Itâ€™s one of those stories that jumps around in time and starts out a little confusing, but it gets clearer (and better, I think) over time.
I liked it…but I probably wonâ€™t be reading it a second time.
Now the fun part — hunting for a new book! Any recomendations?
