Make Up For Ever Diamonds For Ever.

make_up_for_ever_diamonds.jpgSometimes there is a kit that I just have to have. And I really have to have this Diamonds For Ever from Make Up For Ever.

Look how beautiful the model looks in the photo. This is my look that I love to wear in the winter. So soft, with muted pinks, greys, and icy whites - perfection. If only I had that so perfect porcelain skin... sigh.

It certainly doesn't hurt that the products used to create this gorgeous glow comes in one great kit. And listen to why I am even more excited. If these items were purchased separately, these beauties would cost $110 - and the kit itself with the 5 products themselves in a great pouch are less then half of that, for just $49!

Here is what is inside the beautiful black pouch:
*Diamond Powder 11, champagne
*Diamond Shadow 301, diamond white
*Waterproof Lengthening Mascara in 1 Black
*Aqua Eyes in 1L Star Black
*Fascinating Lip Gloss in 1, pearly transparent


The box is perfect for gift giving. Gosh, I cannot believe how much I am thinking about this for the holidays already.

Diamonds For Ever is an exclusive to Sephora, so that is where you need to scoop this up.  


Beth Bender Beauty for Breast Cancer Awareness.

I am always truly amazed at the generosity of people when it comes to Breast Cancer Awareness month. The products and sets that are brought to life months in advance, and the business' that decide to give a portion of their entire month's sales amazes me sometimes even more.

bca_bbb.jpgOne such site that is donating 15% of all sales to the Entertainment Industry Foundation's Women's Cancer Research Fund is Beth Bender Beauty. Not only will she donate 15% of the sales, every person who orders during the month of October will receive a "Paint the Town Pink" lip gloss. Really, there is no better time to order now.

Remember the Get in Line Kit I wrote about last month that helps any women, no matter how makeup savvy or not, create the perfect cat or smoky eye? Now would be the perfect time to try that.  $5.60 of your purchase will benefit the all  important breast cancer research, and you will get that pretty Paint the Town Pink too. Did I mention how beautiful her hand painted containers are? So pretty!!! I think I need to get on over to the site to see what else I need. Her mineral makeup powders and blushes look amazing.
