I’m happy to say March 16th will be my blog anniversary!!
It’s been two years since I started crystalis007.com! Until that day I have a few great giveaways planned. I appreciate you all visiting and most of all commenting! I can’t tell you how wonderful it is to hear your thoughts and opinions on things. Thanks so much for all the support and love over the last two years.
Lets talk about Giveaway #1! I love Lorac and when I saw these glosses I knew that I had to get an extra set to share with one of you. I’ve been hoarding away a few things for this anniversary and I thought this set would be a great prize! International entries are welcome!
Good luck everyone!
I love the holidays! It’s the best time to get deals on makeup sets. I heard from quite a few blog readers about holiday sets in the last week or so. Most of them asked which sets I think are the best deals at Sephora and Ulta. I thought I’d tell you about the must see deals at Sephora first. The sets are so good and tempting you could go bankrupt!
I really recommend carefully thinking about what you really need in your stash most. Because going to Sephora (or shopping online) without really thinking could be dangerous. Kind of like heading to a buffet on an empty stomach! Good idea in theory but a really bad idea after the first thirty minutes. Ha!
This isn’t everything available so check out the whole value sets section for deals. I put the item number for each set under the picture. If you want to look at a specific set on sephora.com you can just put the item number into the search box (in the top right corner) on the website and take a look at the details quickly.
Recently Hautelook had Lorac’s Femme Fatale Eye Shadow Palette up for grabs. I got one palette for myself and two more for you! I thought they’d be a great giveaway prize.
Take a look!

Pro Cream Eyeliner in Black and Plum (right) $19/.08 oz’s each
I’m crazy about eyeliner. I don’t really feel “done” without eyeliner and mascara. But its really hard to get me to come outside of my comfort zone and use anything other than a pencil or liquid liner. I am so glad that I came out of my safe zone for this! It’s another great Pro product from Lorac that will go well with my Pro Eyeshadow Palette (review/swatches here) and Pro Powder Cheek Stains (review/swatches here) want to see? I got two shades Black and Plum.
The thing I love most about these two liners is the rich color and flawless application that you can achieve with the brush. I can’t tell you how much I love the fact that the brush is in the top of the bottle. As a person that can’t decide which brush to use I love that the perfect applicator is right there for me. I’ve been using these two colors for weeks and I haven’t lost the liner top yet. This is perfect for use each day and when you travel.
Would you believe that I’ve never had a purple eyeliner before? This Plum eye color is gorgeous and since I have a crazy obsession with purple eyeshadow it was about time I got a good purple liner right? It’s just beautiful. It’s a nice deep almost eggplant color that looks beautiful with my brown eyes.
Both of these colors last all day and I love the finish. It’s not like shiny patent leather (which I HATE) and it’s not super matte either. There are four shades available and I’d love to pick up the Navy next because I love dark blue liners. They make the white part of my eyes look whiter so I look more awake. If you love Dark Brown that is available also!
Check these out at Ulta and Sephora online. You can also order directly from the Lorac website (www.loraccosmetics.com) if you don’t have a place near you with Lorac products. Remember to check out the Pro Eyeshadow Palette I mentioned above if you haven’t already while you are shopping. It’s my favorite palette that has come out this year so far. I use it a few times a week!
Unless something amazing comes out in the next few months…this is the palette of the year for me. The shadows blend like butter on my lids and I am crazy about matte eye shades so this is the perfect palette for me. The looks you can create are endless with this. I’ve done all matte looks, all shimmer, and shimmer and matte colors mixed.
Usually I can’t do all shimmer on my eyes but the quality and smoothness of these shadows makes it all possible. I even love the shade White in the palette because it blends out beautifully. Usually I have to stay away from bright whites because they look gray or chalky on me. Not the case with this palette. It just works!
Remember that you can click on any of the pictures below to BLOW them up to a larger size for your viewing pleasure:)
Bottom shimmers: Nude, Champagne, Gold, Lt. Bronze, Pewter, Garnet, Deep Purple, and Slate

This pretty palette is at Ulta and Sephora’s online site. My Sephora doesn’t stock Lorac products which I really think is a shame so I usually end up getting my stuff from them at Ulta. You also get a mini (.17 oz) Behind the Scenes Eye Shadow Primer in the box with your palette. I love Lorac’s eye primer like I love cooked food so if you haven’t tried it yet this is a great way to check it out without purchasing a full size tube.
Please let me know if you have this palette already and what you think of it! I’d love to know.
This palette is available exclusively on Hautelook today (my sale invite link is here) for $14!!! Can you believe it? I ordered as fast as humanly possible.
Check out the details below and get on this before it’s gone.
