Lately I am loving the eye liners that have come from SEPHORA! The SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE Rare Brilliance Liner Set is so gorgeous. These liners are super creamy and go on smoothly. Special polymers help them go like butter and they stay all day without budging. This set comes with three jewel tone shades that will go nicely with the shadow set or look good on its own. The shades are: Emerald (green), Hortensia (deep purple), Stretch Limo (black). Best of all, they are waterproof!! If you love to line your eyes, these are a must have.
On the right are swatches of the liners, they are very pigmented. As I said, these go on quite smoothly and are so soft and creamy. They do not tug at the lid at all, which is so nice!

The formula moisturizes and remains soft and creamy without being sticky. These glosses have lustrous color and and mega shine. Use alone or over the Pantone Holiday 2013 Velvet Lipstick.

This SEPHORA + PANTONE UNIVERSE Velvet Lipstick is a velvet matte texture that is creamy and color-rich. It cloaks the lips in color and leaves them moisturized, not dry like most matte lipsticks. The color is a plum-burgundy shade that is perfect for the holiday season. It comes in an adorable case that opens when you push up the bottom and pull out the lipstick. This is a highly pigmented lipstick and the velvet matte texture is the kind that anyone will like, as it doesn’t dry out the lips.

Precious Metal 24-Karat Bag & Brush Set Was $58.00 but is now $38.00!!!


SEPHORA always knows how to put together a brush set. This set is no exception. The SEPHORA+PANTONE UNIVERSE Precious Metal 24-Karat Bag & Brush Set makes a wonderful gift for someone who loves makeup. It comes with a gorgeous white travel case that is embossed with a metallic gold floral design. Inside there are two mesh interior pockets that zip closed. These are perfect for storing cosmetics or brushes. Complete with all the essential brushes needed to do a flawless face, the brushes themselves are synthetic and are embossed with a golden floral design that matches the bag. The set contains: a powder brush, an angled blush brush, an eye brush, an angled liner brush and a smudge brush. I think these brushes are pretty darn good. I used them to apply the eye shadow in the photos below. They did a very good job, so I can say that this set is worth the money. It will make a great gift for anyone who is looking to add to their repertoire of brushes. This is the kind of gift that you get for a true beauty junkie!

All of these items are available for the holidays now on and in SEPHORA stores.
