Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow
Make Up For Ever Artist Shadow

Yesterday, I tweeted Sephora to ask them when the Make Up For Ever pricing discount would be reflected online, and Make Up For Ever responded and said that they were working on it and it would be fixed. I’m happy to announce that it IS fixed and working at Sephora! :) I tested it myself, and I was able to have six eyeshadows + two trios and see a -$40 discount in my basket.

 The pricing discount reflects savings if you purchase more than one eyeshadow with a compact:

  • Single + Mono Compact — $22.00
  • Two Refills + Duo Compact — $34.00 (effectively $17 each)
  • Three Refills + Trio Compact — $44.00 (effectively $14.67 each)

Artist Shadow – Diamond Finish ($21.00) (New, Permanent)

Effortlessly create endless eye looks that range from beautifully natural to highly artistic with this unique eye shadow. With its breakthrough, gel-powder formula blended with ultrafine pigments, Artist Shadow leaves a smooth, even result that gives lids super-saturated, lasting color. Easily-blendable, it is an accessible shadow for the professional makeup artist and the everyday woman.

Giorgio Armani Fade to Grey Collection for Fall 2014
Giorgio Armani Fade to Grey Collection for Fall 2014

“Fade to Grey”, the new Giorgio Armani Beauty look for eyes, lips and nails, is subtle makeup for an elegant autumn. The shades come in soft mineral tones with a slight shimmer for a sheer, weightless effect. “Fade to Grey” offers women subtle and elusive beauty.

Fade to Grey Eyeshadow Palette ($88.00) (Limited Edition)

A gorgeous color duo featuring a shimmery black and delicate golden nude to structure and widen the eyes. The gliding cream texture, light like an airy veil, is easy to apply and can be adjusted to customize the makeup look. The result is either discreet and muted or more intense, but ever sheer and luminous with lasting hold. Its lightweight formula is derived from “micro pearl” technology. The shadow is cold cast in a base with a texture between gel and powder, and imprinted with a pattern before being pressed. Micronized pearl and pigment particles remain intact down to the bottom of the pan.
