Review: Jordana Cat Eye Liners (All Shades)

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Jordana and Milani (sister company to Jordana) eyeliners. I have praised their eyeliners here on the blog for years and years, so I was really excited to try this new line when I received it from Jordana. I've been testing these liners for a few weeks now and today I'm ready to give you my verdict. Do they live up to all of the other Jordana/Milani liners we know and love? Keep reading to find out...

The New Maybelline Creamy Matte Lipstick Shades Have Landed

Many thanks to longtime reader Miranda Turner for this one!

The ten new Colorsensational Creamy Matte shades have landed at Walmart! Miranda spotted them at her local Walmart on Monday, so it looks like they're landing there first (I haven't heard from anyone yet who has spotted them elsewhere). 

I just checked the Walmart website and, as of the time of this post, they do not have these ten new shades listed, so it looks like these are just in-store...for now.

Thanks so much, Miranda, for the great tip!

CVS Beauty Clearance Sale Master List Update

Just in case you're new to the semi-annual CVS Beauty Clearance Sale, I don't usually do a blog post every time I update the master list with new sightings, but I DO time-stamp the list so that you'll know exactly when new items have been added. That said, I just did a pretty big update and you can click HERE to view the master list (lots of new items and shades added!).

Thanks so much to everyone who has contributed to this list so far, and please keep the sightings coming! I really appreciate all the help this time of year. Your tips are helping so many of us save money on our beauty purchases!

The Simple Multi-Benefit Cleansing Oil Has (Finally!) Landed

It's here! It's here! Remember way back in January of 2014 when I posted a sneak peek at the new Simple cleansing oil? Well the release date got pushed from January 2014 to May 2014, but then May 2014 came and went and...nothing. I don't know why it took another year for this one to hit stores, but who cares because it's finally here!

Many thanks to reader @macgl0sschick on Instagram for this one! She spotted (and purchased) this cleansing oil at her local Harmon (subsidiary of Bed Bath & Beyond) recently and kindly shared lots of pics with us.

Sonia Kashuk to Launch Skincare Line

I saw this on and wanted to share:

Even as a makeup artist, Sonia Kashuk is fully aware that without skin care, makeup doesn’t mean a thing. “To me, makeup isn’t going to look good unless your skin looks great,” said Kashuk. In August, she will embrace that mantra with her first range of skin care. “Because I was a makeup artist, the first foray [into product] was going to be color,” she noted. “But [skin care] is such an important aspect.” Exclusive to Target, the collection will consist of four stockkeeping units, Resurface Exfoliating Wash, $14.99, Renew Micro Exfoliating Toner, $14.99, and Detox Purifying Black Mask, $15.99. Additionally, the Dissolve Gel to Oil Makeup Removing Cleanser, $14.99, will launch in November. Kashuk added, “We’re staying true to the mission of ‘luxury doesn’t have to be a guilty pleasure.’”

I'm actually excited to try all of these products, but especially the Dissolve Gel to Oil Makeup Removing Cleanser. Too bad we have to wait until November for that one, but the rest of the line will be available at Target starting in August.

Well apparently I AM hallucinating...


THANK YOU to two lovely readers who just let me know that the reason these are coming up $16 on the Sephora site is because they're TRAVEL-SIZE. Apparently, shopping this sale all day DID make me delirious after all! So sorry for the false alarm, my lovelies. Continue on with your browsing...nothing to see here!

Just a quick note to let you know that I have added lots of additional photos and info to two previous posts:

1) I added additional pics and shade names to the Walgreens-exclusive Disney Belle Collection lip balms, which you can check out HERE.

2) I added photos of all NINE of the new Sally Hansen Pearl Crush polishes (yes, there are nine shades!) and close-up bottle shots of the new Insta Ombre polishes to my original post HERE.

Hope that helps!
