NEW Real Techniques Collector's Edition Sculpting Set

Attention Real Techniques fans and collectors! Have you heard the news?

NEW Real Techniques Collector's Edition Sculpting Set
(retail: $20 on the Real Techniques website)

Real Techniques has just released a new Collector's Edition Sculpting Set (limited edition) which retails for $20 on the Real Techniques site HERE. This set includes the Sculpting Brush (retail: $10) and Setting Brush (retail: $8) plus the new Fan Brush (exclusive to this set). The finish on the handles in this set is shiny metallic (vs. the regular matte metallic finish). 

Considering that the Sculpting Brush and Setting Brush alone would set you back $18, this set is a nice value. I do not know whether this set will ever be available for purchase anywhere else (Ulta, for example) but I do know that it's limited edition. So if you want it, I would consider purchasing it via the RT site while it's still in stock. You get free shipping on the RT site on orders $50+, and they do ship internationally.

Thanks so much to everyone who took the time to let me know about this set! I really appreciate it.

Tarte on HauteLook Tomorrow; New e.l.f. Brushes Now Available for Purchase

Here are two random and unrelated (but awesome) tidbits that I want to make sure you know about:

All three of the new e.l.f. brushes I mentioned about a little while back are now available for purchase on the e.l.f. site HERE (along with all of the other new stuff that I've mentioned over the past few weeks). Thanks to several of you for letting me know about this!

And thanks to reader Elizabeth for leaving a comment on the You Tell Me page today, letting us know that Tarte will be on HauteLook tomorrow (Friday) starting at 8AM Pacific. Set your timers for that one, Tarte fans. I'm sure things will sell out pretty quickly.

First Impressions: Circa Beauty by Eva Mendes (New Walgreens-Exclusive Makeup Brand)

Shortly after I first told you about this new Walgreens-exclusive line of makeup by celebrity Eva Mendes, the products became available on the Walgreens site, as well as (owned by Walgreens). So you know I had to place an order! I believe that, eventually, this entire line will be available in-store at Walgreens, but for now you have to purchase these products online.

One of the problems with trying a new brand for the very first time, without any reviews to help guide you, is trying to decide what to purchase. I went with an eyeshadow trio (there are also singles in this line), a lipstick, and then I picked a wild card. I wanted something that seemed a bit unique, so I opted for a lip and cheek stain.

Now that I've had a little time to try these products, I want to share my initial impressions with you. So let's get started!

Review & Swatches: Sinful Colors Spring 2015 Citrus Twist Jelly Toppers

If you caught my post a few days ago, then you know that the new L'Oreal La Palette Nudes are FINALLY starting to land in stores after weeks of us seeing the empty display at CVS, Walmart, etc. Well actually, I've only heard from readers who have spotted La Palette Nude 2 in stores so far--no sightings of La Palette Nude 1 just yet (if you've seen that one in-store, I'd love to hear from you!).

Today I have some pics of La Palette Nude 2, thanks to longtime reader Peaisms. Peaisms spotted La Palette Nude 2 at her local Walmart this week and kindly shared these pics with us, plus some extra info:

Update on Walgreens Rimmel Sale

As you know, all Rimmel Lasting Finish Lipsticks are 50% off for the entire month of March at Walgreens (in-store and online). But thanks to readers Fifilan and Frances Sutton for letting me know that this sale also applies to Rimmel BB Creams!

I just checked the Walgreens site to see if this sale was also going on online, and they only have the matte formula available online (the non-matte formula is pictured above), but it is indeed 50% off.
