Share: Tell us what you love and hate about Cream Eyeshadows!
my answer: They’re really great to make colors pop as eyeshadow bases or for 2-minute eye looks… but I will say they’re pain to photograph as a lot of them look good from afar but are way less impressive up-close!
theBalm is celebrating the launch of their new ewbsite with 50% off site-wide for the first 24 hours! The new site launches April 1st
Last update from theBalm @ 4:29 PM PST: We are so sorry our website crashed! The great news is, our 24-hour 50% off celebration has not yet begun! thebalm.com didn’t expect such a huge influx of orders and we underestimated the number of our dedicated fans while overestimating the capacity of our server. We’re currently upgrading our server and are told that once it’s functional we’ll be able to accommodate everyone. We are expecting this to be within the next few days and we will announce our launch here, on Facebook. Any orders placed today that received a confirmation email will be honored. If you have any questions please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org! Thanks again for your patience and understanding.

How are you? Has started to feel like spring in your part of the world? It’s shaping up to be a lovely day here–not too warm, not too cold–and we’ll be going for a walk around the neighborhood later on to get out of our office chairs and take a moment to enjoy the nice weather. Shaun made his now-famous omelettes this morning for what is quickly becoming our Sunday morning tradition. I also indulged in two mini Cadbury eggs in the spirit of Easter (one of my favorite Easter treats and the only one I allowed myself this year). I think next year I’m going to take plastic eggs and fill them with dog treats and make Mellan hunt for them. Has anyone done that with their dog before?
Have you ever paid more than retail for a beauty product? Was it limited edition/discontinued? How much did you end up having to pay for it? Was it worth it?
I know there were a few older/discontinued MAC shades that I had purchased at over retail (probably double the retail price). Like some of the really old, original pigments and some of the eyeshadows that came in screw-top eyeshadows.
