Costco Beauty Sightings

Thanks to reader Cole for this one! Cole spotted the Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick + Mini Face Blender Brush set for $32.99 at her local Costco in Southern California this week. She couldn't get a pic, but she let me know that these are also available on the Costco website (per the Costco site, this is a "member only item" so you do have to be a member to purchase):

Bobbi Brown Bronze Shimmer Brick Compact with Mini Face Blender Brush
(Costco price: $32.99)

Click here to see this listing on the Coscto website.

I believe that this compact and brush set was originally a QVC-exclusive and it retailed for $40 when it was still available (it's still listed on the QVC site here). I can also confirm that the Bronze Shimmer Brick by itself retails for $44 on the Bobbi Brown site and also at Sephora (it has excellent reviews on both sites). So that's a nice deal for $32.99 since you also get the brush. Corallista has some nice swatches of this compact here (I like that each individual shade has great color payoff). 

There are some other nice beauty deals at Costco right now...keep reading for the scoop.

NEW Wild Essence by Halle Berry

Of all the celebrity fragrances at the drugstore, I have to tell you that Halle Berry's are always my favorites. If you're a longtime reader of this blog, then you know that I adore the original Halle by Halle Berry fragrance (if you're a real old-school reader, then you might remember my after-Christmas score back in 2009). I've also quite enjoyed Halle Berry's Pure Orchid, Reveal, Closer and Exotic Jasmine (Exotic Jasmine is probably my favorite after the original Halle).

Today I received press info for the newest Halle Berry fragrance, so you know I had to share:
