Special one-on-one birthday. Crystal and Forrest meet together during a rainstorm to talk about makeup and the podcast together.
It looks like November 6th is going to be a huge day!
Jeffree Stars Holiday collection including 5 new shades and brand new lip scrubs will be releasing at 10am pst. The popular online retailer Beautylish has just announced they are selling Jeffree Star Cosmetics, and you can also sign up to be notified of their release of Jeffrees Holiday goodies!
The popular Melt Cosmetics has announced they will be having a 30% off sale from the November 6th through the 8th! It is a great time to pick of their eyeshadow stacks and lipsticks.
Last but not least the Sephora 20% sale is starting for Vib Rouge online on November 6th through the 9th using code Rouge20. Vib customers will be able to get 20% off as well starting November 13th through the 16th using the code Vib20.
My pick of the week is Looxi Beauty Cosmetics. I gave you guys a sneak peek of my recent haul from them and I highly recommend them! They have beautiful pigmented shadows in mattes, duochrome, and shimmers. The star of Looxi for me is their incredibly pigmented pressed highlighters. Bombshell is a very close dupe to the popular Champagne Pop and is 15.00 for a full size compact. They also have a brand new gold highlighter la Belle which looks to be an excellent dupe for Mac Whisper of Gilt and Oh Darling. Go check them out!
