New Moon

So this is not totally makeup related except that I want to get a jump start on creating looks inspired by the New Moon movie coming out November 20, 2009. The trailer mostly shows Bella and super hot Jacob but if you look close you will see other characters too. I love the look that Dakota Fanning is wearing as Jane, the evil minion of the Volturi. I think that may be the first one that I put together. Take a look at the trailer and tell me what you think!

Inexpensive Professional Blush Palette

Today I thought I would talk a little bit about my favorite inexpensive professional blush palette. About 6 months ago I took stock of my growing makeup collection and figured out what I was missing. BLUSH! I had 2 colors - 1 Pink and 1 Peach blush.

I had a million eyeshadows and only 2 cheek colors. How boring was that?! So I immediately started to start looking for new blushes to try. Since I am an avid YouTube subscriber, especially to the beauty blogs, I started by watching a video on blush application. I learned about several different ways to apply blush but more importantly I fell in love with the Coastal Scents blush palette I was seeing used.

I immediately bought one. If you want one you can pick one up cheap on ebay here from me because I liked them so much I decided to put them in my store for the same price that I paid for it, $16.95. It is just such an awesome product that I think everyone should have it!

The colors are so pretty and flattering to every face no matter what you skin tone or color. I am very fair and I thought that I would not be able to use all of them at first. I was so wrong. I have used every color now and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them all. There are 4 matte blushes (1st one on the bottom row and the last 3 on the bottom row). The rest of these have a beautiful sheen of shimmer. The color that I really love the most is the 4th on in on the second row. The case measures 9" long 4" deep (23 cm x 10cm) and is matte black. It is very similar to a MAC palette and just as durable and convenient.

So instead of paying from $5-$10 per blush as a drugstore you get 10 amazing colors in one handy palette for only $16.95. It is a great savings and it is the palette I grab first most days.

Stay tuned for more reviews and product saving tips.
