Creamy shadows for a Valentine’s Day look

Valentine’s Day. I know, I know. Some of us love it and the rest of us feel like crawling in a hole until February 14 comes and goes. The Love Dork that is me has always REALLY liked Valentine’s Day. And I like to go all out when it comes make-up and nails. If you’re looking for some awesome eye shadows, check out these lovely ones from Sephora.

Stunning right? But wait…

These kids are total winners in my book. While they are intended for eye shadows, I find that they work better as bases. And you have to work quickly because once they dry, they ain’t budgin’. The sponge-tip applicators may make for tough application. My suggestion? Dap a bit on your fingers and theeeeen apply the shadows on your lids. I’ll be doing an FOTD or two using these kids. They are surprisingly crease-less and fantabulous. Not bad for $20. You can scoop ’em up at Sephora stores or Sephora.com.

Got any idea Valentine’s Day look ideas?

Free Hello Kitty Beauty goodies for Sephora VIB!

As if I’m not obsessed with this collection enough, check out what just landed in my inbox…

Aw man. Looks like I’ll be in Sephora AGAIN this weekend. Lately that place has been callin’ my name somethin’ serious.

When I’m at work: “Brittaaaanyyy…”

When I’m working out: “Brittanyyyy….”

When I’m blogging: “Yo! Beeeee!”

At least I HOPE that’s Sephora calling my name. 😕 If you are a Sephora VIB and have at least 100 points in your bank then you are eligible to snag that Hello Kitty fragrance sample. I got a whiff of it last weekend and while it was too fruity and sweet for my liking, I still want it for packaging purposes.

I know, I know. Don’t judge me. Have you checked out the Hello Kitty Beauty collection yet? Whatcha think? Oh, and unless you are ready to spend ALL of your money on this cuteness, do NOT watch this video.

I’ve warned you.

XOXO,

Hello Kitty Beauty by Sephora: Super Fun palette

Y’all already know how much of a Hello Kitty fan. And I was practically doing cartwheels when I heard that Sephora was coming out with a Hello Kitty Beauty line. I managed to grab a few of the items during the VIB sale.

First up…this super cute eye shadow palette.

But are the shadows as good of a quality as the the packaging?

Urban Decay Urban Ammo Eye palette

Ohmigoodness, I can’t believe how little I have talked about Urban Decay here at Clumps of Mascara. What a tragedy considering that UD is one of my favorite brands. I mean, I SWEAR by their eyeliners. I did cartwheels when I first discovered the Primer Potion. And I wanted to marry the eye shadows when I first saw them.

Urban Decay is sheer awesomeness and although they aren’t the cheapest cosmetic brand out there, they are unique and innovative.

I always wanted this palette but never got around to purchasing it. A 15% off coupon from Sephora Beauty Insiders as well as a gift card, however, had to running to Sephora on a lunch break. How beautiful and versatile are these colors?


Sin does well as a browbone color on brown skin! Look out for some of my looks using this palette.

This baby will definitely be going with me on my future travels. I can see myself coming up with quite a few looks be it work appropriate neutral or after 5 fierceness. I am really trying to convince myself that I also need the Deluxe Shadow box.

What do you think? Should I snag it?
