Laura Mercier Smoky Effects Smudge, Blend & Gloss Eye & Lip Set

Last night I was drooling over the Laura Mercier Portfolio again, I have been an admirer of this portfolio since I first saw it at the old day job a few months ago. It is pretty damn amazing. For a moment I was distracted by this new set from Laura Mercier, I just had to talk about because the value is so good here. For $39.50, this Laura Mercier Smoky Effects Smudge, Blend & Gloss Eye and Lip Set comes with Laura’s Caviar Stick Eye Color in Golden, a travel Crème Eye Detail Brush and mini Lip Glacé in Bare Pink. The brush and gloss may be mini but they make this totally makeup bag worthy and good for getting a solid smoky look on the go. Lately my makeup routine has consisted of whatever I can put on my face during my commute and this fits right in with that!

You can find this set exclusively at Nordstrom. And pre-order that Portfolio while you’re at it, it will be gone before you know it and it’s too good to pass up.

YSL Friends and Family Sale

December 2009 is one for the history books! YSL Beauty is having a sale. I repeat, SALE! Of the 20% off, friends and family variety. This is a first for the brand that never goes on sale. The only tangential way YSL goes on sale is if you purchase through Sephora during their friends & family sales. So I say, this is pretty awesome!


From December 14 through December 20, YSL is offering 20% off at checkout with code FF2009 and 3-day complimentary shipping. If you are a YSL lover, this is a great chance to stock up on faves. And this is an even better chance for those new to the brand to try their cult favorites! Touche Éclat or Rouge Volupté (#1 Nude Beige is a-maz-ing! ) anyone?
