ACW-exclusive SMH shades (plus sale code! plus giveaway!)

Many of you have probably already shopped from All Cosmetics Wholesale, a cosmetics resale e-tailer. They carry MAC, Chanel, and Bobbi Brown, as well as Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics, Sigma brushes, and Stars Makeup Haven. Things that you can't find anymore (because they're discontinued, because they're not readily available in your country), you can often find on ACW. Well because ACW has a relationship with Stars Makeup Haven, SMH created five new eyeshadow shades exclusively for ACW. A...

Artdeco Sale News

German cosmetics brand Artdeco is celebrating it's 25th birthday, and, to celebrate, is offering 25% off a selection of their products (they have them all on one page on their frame-based site). For me, Artdeco is both tantalizing and tantalizingly out of reach.  The brand is best known for its eyeshadow primer and its magnetic palette system (with a rainbow of beautiful eyeshadow and blush shades. Oh how I want to swatch them). The sale is definitely valid in Germany; in other countries ...
