Holiday Sparkle

I'm obsessed with palettes. I don't know what it is--I just love having so many products in one little compact. And it helps when the compact is super cute.

Cargo came out with an absolutely divine fabric compact that is filled to the brim with holiday-inspired beauty products. Together, they create a shimmery look that is perfect for an eve out on the town. Included in the set is:
-4 x 0.085 oz Holiday Nights Eye Shadow Quad
- 0.317 oz Blush
- 0.041 oz Boogie Nights Eye Pencil in Silver
- 0.078 oz Face & Body Sparkle


Retailing at $25, it's a pretty great deal. It makes the perfect gift for just about anyone (even yourself)! An added bonus? The makeup is held in a removable insert so you can use the gorgey box for whatever you choose!

It's in the Stars

Ever wonder what to buy for yourself, or a friend? Beauty.com offers a great beauty horoscope complete with fabbity fab beauty buy suggestions for each sign.

So, what's your sign?

Oodles of Makeup

Oh Sephora, how I love thee! This season's Ultimate Blockbuster palette tickles my fancy. It has all the essentials for eyes, face, and lips--pretty much all you need for complete classic beauty. The gorgey kit includes 71 eyeshadow shades (0.04 oz each), 13 cream eyeshadow shades (0.03 oz each), 5 blushes (0.19 oz each), 1 compact powder (0.19 oz), 60 lip glosses (0.03 oz each), one lip liner, one eyeliner, 4 brushes, 3 sponge-tipped applicators, and a fab black case that's just as classy as you are.

What's not to love? Oh and did I mention that the palette is actually a $320 value? Because it is. Yet, all you have to pay is a mere $48. Not bad if I do say so myself.

Fashion Faux Pas: Denim Suits

This one's for the guys out there. Denim suits are not, nor have they ever been, fashionable.

I went to a career fair this week and obviously someone did not get the memo. Clad in a full denim suit (which I'm fairly sure was homemade), this lovely fellow tried to further his career by making the rounds to all of the businesses' booths. Needless to say, he did not get even one great response...at least as far as I can tell.

So for all the guys out there, stop wearing denim suits (or even blazers for that matter) and try dressing like a normal human being. How about a nice charcoal suit? Giving up the denim suit immediately increases your chances of getting a job by 200%. It's a fact. I promise. That is all.
