I got a nice surprise when I stopped by Sephora after work today. Sometimes the store near my house takes a while to put new stuff out on their shelves (they also had holiday items out until MARCH), so I couldn’t believe my eyes when I spotted fall makeup from Stila, Too Faced and TheBalm (YES!).
Were they just a mirage? I wondered. I pulled out my camera to capture the photographic evidence.
Stila Long Wear Lip Color ($22)
Swatches from left: Firey, Caprice, Patina, Petal, Coral, Mauve
Stila Backstage Eye Shadow Palette ($28) and Stila Custom Color Blush ($20)
Top row: Chiffon, Flamingo, Pacific; Bottom row: Luster, Poetic, Coal
Custom Color Blush
Swatches from left: Chiffon, Flamingo, Pacific; Bottom row: Luster, Poetic, Coal, Custom Color Blush
Too Faced Naked Eye Soft & Sexy Eye Shadow Collection, $35
Swatches from left: In The Buff, Pillow Talk, Like a Virgin
From left: Birthday Suit, Satin Sheets, Unemntionables
From left: Pink Cheeks, Lap Dance, Stiletto
TheBalm TimeBalm Liquid Concealer ($20)
Swatches from left: Light, Light/Medium, Honey
I didn’t intend to leave with anything when I entered the store, but resistance was futile (isn’t it always?). I ended up exchanging Touche Eclat for the Stila Backstage Palette and a tube of TimeBalm Liquid Concealer in Honey… Let’s hope at least one of ‘em moves makeup mountains (I’ll let you know).
Onward to Thursday! Hang in there. From here to the weekend, as Tabs would say, “it’s all gravy.”
