So many of my favorite beauty products are from Sigma, most especially their eye shadow palettes! Among my favorites are the Resort Palette, which came out a long time ago, (now the individual shadows are available, you can see them here!) and the Brilliant & Spellbinding Palette, which is a more recent release. Another classic favorite is the Paris Palette, with rich, pigmented shadows and blushes all in one kit.

But no matter which products you’re hooked on, Sigma is having two big promotions for Black Friday and Cyber Monday… Keep reading!!

I know a lot of my readers and viewers are international residents, so Sigma is catering to everyone with this promotion: Beginning now through 11/28 (11:59pm Pacific Standard Time) every single order, whether domestic or international, will ship for free! To take advantage of this promotion, just enter code BF2014 at checkout.

As for Cyber Monday, Sigma is offering 20% off sitewide with code CM2014. (Valid only on December 1 from 12am to 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time.) So all those Sigma goodies you’ve been eyeing but haven’t committed to buying yet, now is the time!!



And the savings continue!! This Black Friday deal is strictly for your pout: Motives Cosmetics is offering 35% off of their lip boosts, a collection of sheer hydrating lip colors. These are all neutral shades (frost and no frost) and they actually enhance your natural lip color, hence the name. My personal favorites are Rare and Riot (the first and third shades in the photo above); Rare is more of a deep cinnamon shade while Riot is a beautiful nude blush.

And here’s a tip: Check back on the Motives website on Monday for a special Cyber Monday surprise!!

Thanks to Lens Crafters Glendale for treating me to an eye exam to fit me for these contacts!!

Color contacts have been around for a long time; as a teen who needed corrective contact lenses, I used to play around with different colors all the time! But times and technology have changed, of course, and color contacts have come a long way.

I recently got in touch with Alcon and they told me about their brand new technology in color contact lenses called AIR OPTIX® COLORS. I had a chance to attend an event here in Los Angeles at the Chateau Marmont where they were showcasing all the colors. (Obviously, I had loads of fun trying on the different colors!) The entire team seemed really proud of this innovation in color contacts, and once I heard more about the new technology and actually tried out the lenses for myself, I was very impressed.
