Bargain: PMD Microderm & Cell Regeneration System

Hi everyone! How did your Thanksgiving go? :) Did you guys have fun with your families and friends? :)

I received an email from Groupon about this great deal on the PMD Microderm & Cell Regeneration System today. I've been waiting for a discount like this to come along since I've been reading a lot of great reviews about this microdermabrasion kit. For the PMD device alone, it's $179 and the Cell Regeneration System is $80 at skinstore.com and Groupon is offering this great deal for only $129 plus tax and FREE SHIPPING. This includes the PMD device, a 4 oz Advanced Soothing Cleanser, 4 oz Calming Neuro Neutralizing Toner and 1.7 oz Professional Recovery Moisturizer. 

I know it's still quite expensive but this will save you a lot of money if you do get facial often from a professional. I just ordered mine earlier this morning and would like to share this great deal with you guys. :)

Bargain: Nordstrom Quilted Makeup Palette

Hello lovelies! Sorry for the lack of post lately. My best friend came here to CA to visit me for the whole week last week so I have to take her around. :) We had fun and I feel like one week is too short. :/ I hope she comes back next year. 

Anyway, I would like to share a great bargain from Nordstrom. :)
I bought this Nordstrom Quilted Makeup Palette for $12.90 plus tax (orig. $27)

This deal was available on slickdeals.net as well but the link expired already. However, you can still go to Nordstrom.com to look for the palette. Although it says that it's currently unavailable, you can call the 1-800 number provided and ask for the Quilted Makeup Palette. Also, make sure to tell them exactly what the item is and the price. I've done the exact same thing and asked them about if it's available at my nearest Nordstrom store, which it was and I have it reserved and I picked it up after the phone call the very same day. Click here to direct you to the Nordstrom Quilted Makeup Palette where you can find the number to call your nearest Nordstrom store. :)

48 eyeshadows, 48 lipgloss, 6 blush

I love how pigmented colors are! For the price, I think it's totally worth it. ;)

So girlies, hurry and get this palette soon before it's gone! :D

Birchbox & Glossybox USA: October 2012

Received both boxes last week. Guess what's missing? My ipsy bag. Apparently, USPS lost my package again. Grrr! Now, I have to wait for probably a week to get a replacement. Anywho, I also unsubscribed from Birchbox. I am more happier with the products that I'm getting from Glossybox. :)

Let's move on... ;)

What's inside this month's Birchbox?

sorry the colors are a bit washed out..was in a hurry.. >.<
1. Luna | Lemonzest
~ These zesty snacks are a goop fave. They're perfect for keeping you full in between meals (plus they can double as a healthy dessert!) Pack of 15, $18.75

2. Karuna | Hydrating Treatment Masks
~Get on board with the sheet mask trend. This-at-home fave contains Japanese natto (soybean) to boost skin's mositure levels. 4 masks, $28

3. Embryolisse | Lait-Creme Concentre - 24 Hour Miracle Cream

This month's Birchbox is so-so for me.. I am just glad that they didn't give me another hair tie. LOL

This month's theme: SPA LUXE 2012

1. Carol's Daughter | Shea Souffle (sample - 4oz (half of the full size))

SWATCHES: Hello Kitty Palettes

Hiiii! As promised, I am providing the swatches for the Hello Kitty Palettes that I blogged about 3 days ago. :)

Hello Kitty Shimmering Powder & Eyeshadow Palette
I've put some arrows so you guys can see where it is, just in case. Hehe ;)

Hello Kitty Parisienne Eyeshadow & Blush Palette

I've tried to look for dupes but failed. I know somewhere out there, there is one. :) It took me awhile too since I've swatched every single blush and eyeshadows I have. I do love the blush though. I thought it would be a great dupe for NARS Deep Throat or Orgasm but it's completely different. I love how the eyeshadows are pretty pigmented. Overall, I would recommend this for makeup and Hello Kitty enthusiasts. However, I believe they're not sold at Sephora anymore. Maybe ebay? :) Also, next time I think they should really add some quirky names for their eyeshadows and blushes. Seems a little boring isn't it? :)

Any cute makeup palettes you guys would like to share? 

Have a great weekend! I have another post coming up. My beauty boxes have arrived. ;)

Hello Kitty Palettes

I've been wanting to share this with you guys since summer but never really got a chance to. With all the moving and busy schedule, I neglected to share this one with you guys. I actually ordered these at Sephora.com the night before I left for Canada for a trip this past summer. So, it arrived when I was on vacation. It was a real steal because they were on sale for a very reasonable price. I bought the Hello Kitty Shimmering Powder and Make up Palette (left) for $11 and the Parisenne Palette (right) for $13. They normally go for about $36 each. I also got some Hello Kitty Blotting Papers for $3. I couldn't resist how cute they are! LOL

I forgot to do some swatches with these again but I will provide them on my next post soon. ;)

Hello Kitty Shimmering Powder and Eyeshadow Palette
Don't you guys think the packaging is soooo cute?! For all the Hello Kitty enthusiasts out there, I'm sure you would love this one. 
Shimmering Powder
When you open the case, the shimmering powder sits on top of the eyeshadow palette, just flip it over and you will see the make up palette. :)

A close up look -Shimmering powder
This highlighter looks gorgeous! They sure know how to attract customers like me. Hehe ;) I've never actually tried using this specific highlighter but I will soon! :D

I loveeee the color combination of this one. Of course nothing special since you can most likely get dupes, but i just think it's still awesome haha. I will talk about the pigmentation once I'm done swatching these. :)

close up look
Too bad the eyeshadows doesn't come with unique names like what Urban Decay and other make up palettes have.

Hello Kitty Parisienne Eyeshadow and Blush Palette
The reason why I picked this one because of the theme: Paris. I love everything about Paris. So this is a must have for me, especially combined with Hello Kitty.. Gotta get it! :D

Gorgeous colors as well, however, I don't know if I can pull it off (colors on the left). Haha Maybe I can use it subtly? We'll see.. I've never got a chance to play around with the colors yet. 
This blush has a very nice shade of pink. I've used this for about 3-4 times already and I've gotten compliments on what blush I'm wearing. There is a dupe for this one but I couldn't really point a finger to it. Maybe I will try and look for another dupe of this and provide it to you guys on my next post. :)

Hello Kitty Blotting paper
This blotting paper comes with 100 sheets and I haven't used a single one yet. Haha I don't want to run out! LOL 

Well, that's all for now. :) Again, I will provide the swatches on my next post.

Did you guys get a chance to get one of these palettes when it was on SALE?
