VIB Haul

My VIB "gift card" haul arrived!  If you've been keeping up with me on twitter, you should know by now that I have a sinus infection so sorry for the lack of recent posts!

Anyway, here's the loot:

NARS Silent Night eyeshadow (special $9, regularly $22)

I'd heard on the makeup board that this was not very pigmented. I think my swatch shows otherwise. My guess is on the eyes this is a very nice pearly gold sheen, which is a great my lids but better look, especially applied with a fluffy brush. To get maximum payoff, you'll probably need a sponge tip applicator.


Next up, Benefit Lust Duster trios. Guys, this is an amazing deal! If you even barely like loose eye shadows, get these!  These are $18 each on the Benefit site and $10 for 3 on Sephora.com - that sounds like a no brainer to me. Plus, they come in little gold mesh baggies which are great if you are giving them as a gift. Personally, I am keeping them for myself. I'm selfish like that.

 






Aren't they pretty? I grabbed some other stuff, but I might be gifting the rest. If not, I'll be sure to swatch and post my thoughts.


I want to wish all of my Jewish followers a very Happy Hanukah! DH and I are celebrating tomorrow with my parents. I bet I will return home 3 pounds heavier with all the latkes and brisket! Cham Sameach*!

*This is Hebrew for Happy Holidays
