Kat Von D Blushes 50% Off at Sephora Inside JCPenney

I just received a tip (from a lovely reader who prefers to remain anonymous) letting me know that all Kat Von D Everlasting Blushes are 50% off at Sephora Inside JCPenney locations (NOT regular Sephoras or on the Sephora website). This markdown officially started on Friday (yesterday) but it could vary from store to store. (Actually, it's a little MORE than 50% off because reader @angeliquesbeautyworld on Instagram just told me that she got one for $11.99 at her SJCP yesterday.)

PLEASE NOTE: I've covered many Sephora Inside JCPenney clearance deals here over the years, and I can tell you that, sometimes, not all locations may participate in these markdowns. However, it is always a good idea to call your local SJCP store and ask them if they have these. Reader @k8tgr8s on Instagram kindly let me know that when she called her local SJCP today, the associate wasn't aware of the sale. But when the associate scanned some of the KVD blushes, they DID come up 50% off in the system. So if you call your local SJCP and they tell you these blushes are not on clearance, you may want to politely request that they grab a few from the gondola and scan them...just to be sure!

New IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Romantics Palette + Heavenly Luxe Shadow Brush for $39.54 ($66 Value)

Thanks to several of you for the tips about this one! If you love mattes and you love IT Cosmetics, you need to know about this one:

Right now on the QVC website, you can get the new IT Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Vol. 2 Romantics Palette (this is an all-matte palette) with the Heavenly Luxe No Tug Dual-Ended Shadow Brush for $39.54 + $3 shipping. I believe that this set with the Heavenly Luxe No Tug Dual-Ended Shadow Brush is exclusive to QVC (and we all know how awesome IT Cosmetics brushes are, right?). When this palette is available at other retailers, it will retail for $42 and it will NOT include the brush. The brush alone retails for $24, so the total retail value of this set is $66.

You can watch a video of the on-air demo featuring Jamie Kern Lima (co-creator of IT Cosmetics) HERE. Also, my pals Stef and Tyna of weheartthis posted a review with swatches HERE, if you want to check it out. 

I've heard nothing but raves so far about this new palette from those of you who have it. You know I love the Naturally Pretty Celebration Palette (you can read my review of that palette here if you'd like to get an idea of what IT Cosmetics matte shadows are like, if you're new to the brand) and I also own the Naturally Pretty Vol. 1 palette and love it, so I'm really tempted to get this one too. Their matte eyeshadows are quite silky, smooth and easy to work with (they're a personal favorite of mine and I'm picky about my mattes).

Thanks again to everyone who let me know this deal was live on the QVC site today!

All OCC Products 50% Off In-Store and Online at Sephora

Heads up, OCC fans!

All OCC products are now 50% off on the Sephora site, as well as in-store (I believe they're no longer going to carry the brand). Also, one of you kindly mentioned to me that this applies in-store at Sephora Inside JCPenney locations too (if that was you, please comment below and let me know so I can thank you--I can't seem to find your original comment!).

As expected, things are going quickly online, so your best bet may be to get over to your local Sephora or Sephora Inside JCPenney at this point, to see what you can find.

Milani Limited Edition Amore Matte Lip Cremes - On the Milani Website Today(?)

So I've heard rumors that the limited edition Amore Matte Lip Cremes were scheduled to go up on the Milani website today (August 1st). As of the time of this post, I don't see them there, but if you spot them there at some point this weekend, I would love to hear from you (I'll do my best to keep checking the site as well).

Fingers crossed!

Review: Neutrogena Ultra Light Cleansing Oil

I feel like it's my personal mission to try every single cleansing oil that hits the drugstores. Why? I have no idea. Well, I take that back. I guess I'm always searching for something that might compare to my beloved holy grail DHC Cleansing Oil, so I pretty much won't stop buying drugstore versions until I find it.

To date, I've reviewed for you the Garnier cleansing oil, The Body Shop chamomile cleansing oil, the DHC cleansing oil and I thought I reviewed the Eclos cleansing oil, but it turns out that I haven't (I like that one quite a bit though, and I think it's one of the closest formulas, performance-wise, to the DHC cleansing oil for me). I have NOT tried the new Simple cleansing oil or the new Burt's Bees cleansing oil, but I'm sure I'll get there eventually.

Which brings us to this new cleansing oil from Neutrogena...

(retail: around $8.99, 4.0 oz.)
