:-)

Young Punk, Nordstrom Customer Service

So in my last post I was like desperately looking for a MAC Young Punk Mineralize eyeshadow but was having lots of trouble finding one. BUT I remembered that Nordstrom will check all their stores on their computer to see if anything you are looking for is in-stock. I don't know why I hadn't remembered to do this earlier!

So I go on Nordstrom.com and do a live chat and the lady tells me it's in-stock at one place and gives me the number. I asked her if I could have a list of places because their computers are not always up to date as to what's in stock.

So I start calling all these Nordstroms and each one says they are sold out. I get to the last one on the list not expecting them to have it and when I ask she says oh yeah we have it. I then ask her how many she has, she's like oh let me check. She comes back and tells me there is ONE LEFT. So of course I told her I'll take it! This girl was SUPER SWEET! She even gave me free shipping! So I was really happy about that! I have to say though I have always had great customer service from Nordstrom! They are always nice and helpful! Great customer service makes your shopping experience just that much better!

So in case you didn't know if ever you are looking for something that is sold out, you can always call Nordstrom customer service or do a live chat and they can check their computers and try and help you locate the item you are looking for.

So I should have my Young Punk (haha) in a few days! Yay! Thank you Nordstrom Customer Service for helping me locate one and Dianna at the MAC counter for hooking me up with free shipping! :D


Just wanted to remind you if your going out or dressing up for Halloween this weekend don't forget to take some pictures and enter my contest!

Help Me!

So I am looking for MACs Young Punk eyeshadow but I can't find it ANYwhere!!! :-(

I really really REALLY NEED this eyeshadow!!! BUT it's sold out online everywhere and sold out everywhere in my area. I called like every MAC Pro to see if they could ship it to me but it's sold out.

If you know of a counter or store that has some left that would ship it to me PLEASE let me know! Or if you can pick one up for me I can pay you with pay pal!

I placed a bid on eBay yesterday for one but I have already been outbid. The price is getting kind of ridiculous on there.

I waited to get it because I signed up for a class a couple weeks ago and figured I could get it then. The class was today and it's all sold out!

Well let me know if you can help me out or know where there is some in stock, I will greatly appreciate it! :-)

Barbie Loves Stila Palette back in new packaging!

I'm sure many of you know that the Barbie Loves Stila Palette is sold out online and pretty much every Sephora as well.

The same exact colors are back in a new palette at Stila.com! It's just different packaging.

I know it's not as cute as the Barbie packaging (well to me at least, although you might like this packaging better) :-) but you still get the same 12 beautiful eye shadows!

The Bold Beauty Palette is available at Stila.com for $28. This is such a great deal! If you were not able to get your hands on the Barbie palette pick this up!

Back Again/ Update!

Well I finally got my computer back! We got a virus on our computer, now we do have things to protect our computer from that and it scans our computer everyday but a virus came through. It was pretty bad too. It like locked us out of our computer basically and we couldn't do anything on it.

So being that this has never happened to us before, we didn't exactly know what to do so we took it to the Geek Squad. Of course they said it was only going to be so much, then told us oh now you need a new hard drive, then some discs that we needed to order in order for them to work on it, plus every time we did get information WE had to call them. Horrible customer service! They did fix it but with what we ended up paying we could have just bought a NEW computer! Oh well! Lesson Learned.

Well I've been gone for so long I feel so out of the loop with every ones blogs! I have so much to catch up on!

I have a lot to post as well. Hopefully nothing will go wrong now and I can get back to posting regularly!

Barbie Loves Stila



I picked up a few things from this collection a few weeks ago. I have never been a big fan of Stila. I have never really cared for their shadows. Everyone else seems to love them but me.

I first saw this in an email from Stila and thought everything looked so cute! BUT because of my dislike for the eye shadows I wasn't anticipating much.

Well a few days later I go to Sephora and they just put out the whole collection.
Everything looked even prettier in person. I swatched the shadows right away and they seemed good but that's how all the others I have tried felt. I decided it was too cute to pass up so I put it in my basket.

The other thing that caught my eye from the email is the Smudge Pot in Purple Pumps, so I opened it to swatch it. As soon as I saw the color, before I even swatched it I KNEW I had to have it! I swatched everything else and loved it all. I was trying to have SOME self control so I got one more thing, the Smudge Pot in Little Black Dress.

I have had a lot of time to play with everything and I have to say I LOVE it all!

I was very happy with the palette. The shadows are very pigmented and don't seem crumbly/powdery like a lot of their other shadows I have tried. This is also an amazing deal. You get 12 different colors of shadow for only $28. You can create so many different looks with this one palette.


Natural light

Flash



I took the swatch pictures at night so I didn't have any natural light and the flash washed out the colors. :-/ If you want better swatches just let me know. :-)




I have never tried Smudge Pots before these and I was very happy with them. They are very smooth and glide on very easily. They are also long lasting which is always great. I loved them so much I want to get some more. I'll probably get the blue one from this collection.

Purple Pumps is a beautiful bright purple with pink sparkle in it. You can use it as a liner or a base for shadows which is beautiful.


Little Black Dress is black with pink sparkles in it. When I used this as a liner you can actually see the sparkles in it. This would be a great way to wear black liner with a little added pizazz!



Stila has won me over with this collection! I'm glad I got the palette. It's one of my favorite purchases recently! Great job Stila!
Have any of you had the chance to pick anything up from this collection? What are your thoughts on it? Definitely check it out if you haven't. It's a really fun collection!
