Sparkle and Bling in a Recession

Sparkle and Shimmer are back; which can be a scary thought to some. There are so many new shimmery products introduced by Yves Saint Laurent, NARS, Makeup Forever, MAC, and Stilla just to name a few. However the recession has had a negative impact on our finances and some of us cannot afford to go out and buy all the new fall makeup if any. My suggestion to you is to look no further than your own stash. For those of us who have collected Makeup over the years here are a few things I know may be hiding in your stash. Here is a list of my shimmery fun products I will be blinging this fall

MAC Dazzleglass and Glimmerglass Limited Edition (Bling Black, Blackfire and Blackware)
MAC Eyeshadow ( Cinderfella, Young Punk, Blue Flame)
Urban Decay Shadow (packed with glitter and shimmer)
MAC Black Tied, Sumptious Olive, Amber Rose
Makeup Forever Glitters
Makeup Forever Rocks Star Collection from last season 2010
Coastal Scents Ultra Shimmer
Coastal Scents Metal Mania
Coastal Scent Go Pallet Sydney
NYX Ultimate Pearl Shadow

There are so much shimmer out there there is not need to buy my. My staple is a smokey black eye and a little shimmer here and there. For the girl on a budget no need to spends tons of money on new shimmer just rock the bling already in your stash.

New Makeup

How many blue eyeshadow can a girl have. Well I have accepted the fact that there are only so many colors in the colorbox. Blue is still Blue and Pink is still Pink. I truly have a love for makeup, however I would not say I am a collector because I actually enjoy using it, but I have notice I tend to stick to my favs and I have to remind myself to use the new stuff. Summer is usually the time of year I fall back, no so much makeup because I live in TX !! Summer is ususally gloss and a nude eyeshadow look, nothing fancy. Although I dont think there are too many colors I dont have, there is always new products I dont have (lol). Keep checking in I will keep you posted on my new favs.

Stila Red Carpet. this pallet is a must have! This palette is simply gorgeous and recession proofed! The retail price for this pallet is $42 can you believe it, for this you will get the following:

- 21 Eye shadows named after Celebrities
- 2 Convertible Colors ( Lights and Camera)
- 2 Cheek Colors (Actions and Flash)
- 1 Mirror.

The shadows alone add up to e less than $2 a shadow and that is a real steal. They are offering 3 smaller pallets which are "Stunning Starlet Palette", "Glamour Goddess Palette", and "Breathtaking Beauty Palette" all of which retail at $25. I like the price point, I love Stila quality and yes I recommend this one to the newbie or the seasoned pro.
