Smashbox Mother Earth Palette ($45.00)
An eco-friendly color palette containing four eyeshadows and a blush. Smashbox Mother Earth Palette includes four certified-organic shadows and a blush housed inside a compact and sleeve made from sustainable materials. Mix and match the blendable shades to create a perfectly pigmented frame for the eyes and add a pop of the tangerine-hued blush for a flush of color on the cheeks. Being green has never been so easy! With each purchase, a tree will be planted by Trees for the Future, a non-profit organization dedicated to creating sustainable environments through forestation throughout the world.
Availability: Exclusively at Sephora.com

MAC Cosmetics is now selling pro palette refills online!
Yes, ONLINE! For those with only access to counters (or no access to stores at all!), you can score your eyeshadow pans online with ease. Not only that, but powder blush pans are also available online to all consumers–these aren’t even available at freeestanding stores (unless it’s changed recently)–typically only available at PRO stores.
You can also find the empty palettes for purchase under the “Kit Essentials” and then “Containers” section of the website (or quads, 15-pans, blush). I think some of you have some shopping to do! (And if you do, be sure to share your hauls in this post!)
Welcome Back, Stila!
Stila Cosmetics is really back, darlings! New owner Lynn Tilton has been welcomed into the Stila Girl fold, and she’d like to offer a complimentary Stila Appreciation 24kt Luxe Lip Gloss with a purchase of $25 or more. Just use code APPRECIATE. Oh yeah, that’s right–the website is back online and in action!
It sounds like Stila has some very interesting things planned for the future, so I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what direction they go in over the next few months. By the way, am I the only one who didn’t know about Stila’s very nifty rewards program? Where have I been?!

Maybelline will launch Define-A-Lash Pulse Perfection Mascara in July. It is a battery-operated vibrating mascara, designed to deliver 7,000 vibrations per minute with each battery to last for a minimum of 130 days. (I wonder if that’s 130 days without stopping, or 130 of “typical” use.) It will be priced at $14.95 at mass retailers in July, but a special sneak preview on May 18th will enable interested buyers to purchase early for that day only. You can visit maybelline.com/pulse for details come May 18th.
7 Must-Have MAC Dazzleglasses
About the Temptalia Must-Haves Series
A series of posts showcasing must-have products from MAC Cosmetics’ permanent line of products. Selections are based on quality, universality, uniqueness amongst the line, and the like. Limited edition shades are deliberately excluded to make buying easier. Readers’ comments act as a supplement to these lists of their favorites and must-haves. You can find the entire series here.
Smile dazzleglass is a shimmery confection of peachy gloss with pink and gold pearl shimmer. Just a natural/easy-to-wear kind of color.
Steppin’ Out dazzleglass is a pretty in pink shade with lighter pink shimmer. It’s not really a hot pink, though it looks like it; it’s more wearable, because the formula runs sheer.
Love Alert dazzleglass is a deeper, more opaque raspberryish-pink shade with subtle dazzle shimmer. Looks almost like a lip stain.
Funtabulous dazzleglass is a fuchsia-purple shade with light and bright purple shimmer reflects in it. This is fabulous layered over hot pink and purple lipsticks.
