Makeup & Muses: Gifted Sephora & FOTD

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Sephora and asked if I'd like to review some must-have products. I said yes, of course. I was sent 3 items: Harajuku Lovers Sunshine Cuties Bag and Harajuku Lovers Makeup Girls Bag--both for storing makeup and accessories. Also, I was given the Sephora Summer Goddess Palette.

The two bags are clutches that are perfect for holding all your touch-up brushes, compacts, lipsticks and lip glosses. The pink one is transparent while the other bag is a solid yellow. Both feature the adorable Harujuku girls that Gwen Stefani made so famous. I will be going out of town soon so I will definitely use one of these bags to store my makeup essentials. I think I will give the other one away in a giveaway later this year. That sound good?

The palette is great for creating a scintillating turquoise eye with a bronzed glow. Step-by-step instructions are included with this set of:

-Swimming Pool Blue eyeshadow
-Copper Sun eyeshadow
-Blue eyeliner pencil
-Black mascara lash plumper
-Bronzing powder
-Powder brush
-Eyeshadow brush

The palette is really easy to put on, plus I get to experiment with colorful eye shadows, which is awesome. See this post to know why.
I give this 4 Hearts
♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

Oh yeah, my new haircut. What do you think of the Sephora palette?

Also, my friend Vito is selling a variety of cool sunglasses on his website. Here are two that I picked out for myself. The best part--only $7 and free shipping!




These sunglasses have 100% UVA and UVB protection with sturdy frames that come in a variety of colors and styles. They also have designer comparisons.

So if you want some classic aviators for only $7 or some other style, visit 7 Dollar Sunglasses for a great deal on great shades.

Awesome post, Cheryl! I absolutely adore the bag on the left side, so cute. :3 It's really cool that Sephora actually CONTACTED you to review their products!

Love the blue shadow, it's sooo pretty! I need to get some in that shade.

Cute glasses, though I wear normal eyeglasses so I can't normally wear sunglasses. :( My sister loves sunglasses though, I'm going to have to show these to her!

Thanks for the comment on my blog! I am unashamed to say that I am GLEEK for sure! :D
