Keep On Dreaming......

Hi My Loves!

I got an email today from Sephora showcasing their latest and greatest indulgences for the holiday season. I figured I'd share them with you because..... well because I know you'll probably feel the same way I do about them :)

Here's the first item that caught my eye.

First thing I thought was YES!!! I want it.... you know I love Urban Decay shadows. They are actually my favorite eyeshadows out there, so I was really excited when I saw this. And then I saw the price.... WAH WAH WAH!!! Darn. $600 is a crazy amount to spend on an eyeshadow set and that is why I called this post keep on dreaming. As much as I would love to have all 68 of those delightful bad boys.... it's just way out of the question for me. But it does look rather fabulous and it would be pretty cool to have every shade they make! I'll keep dreaming on that one :)

Next thing that caught my attention was this little beauty.

I love Stila. They are pigmented and the quality is fab. Once again this set is definitely on the high side of the budget but not quite as ridiculous as the Urban Decay. This set contains 15 deluxe lip glazes, 8 smudge stick waterproof eye liners, 3 brushes, 3 smudge crayons 12 eyeshadows and 4  blushes. Looks pretty delightful and you get a lot of different makeup so that's nice. Still pretty pricey though.

Last thing that caught my eye was this.

The price is still pretty high but much easier to swallow than the former two I talked about. I think this is something that is a splurge but it's not going to make you puke thinking about as you walk out with the receipt in your hand or even worse.... your husband kill you when he finds out ;) (And no Jay has never wanted to kill me after I've bought makeup haha... had to throw that out there!) 

As a child I loved advent calendars. We would get the Cadbury ones filled with yummy little santa and reindeer shaped chocolates. Every morning we would rush downstairs to open the day's little window to see what shape chocolate it was. There's just something so fun about an advent calendar, so I think it's really cool that they have made one for the adult beauty lover. A little small makeup or skin care treat for 24 days of December! What a way to make Mom smile eh?? It has blushes, mascara, skin care, lip gloss... all sorts of little goodies in it to make that girly girl excited to get up and open that little window for the day :) (Hey who knows, it might even make your teenage daughter get up for school early????) 

Could you see yourself buying any of these for yourself or as a special gift?

Let me know your thoughts!!

Thanks so much for reading and Happy Almost Halloween! Where did this year go??
