November 25th, 2009

I am awaiting a small box with the word SEPHORA written across it. Even though I have a slightly large ER bill from when I went to see them after half my face stopped moving, I indulged a little. And part of the reason for that indulgence is the anticipation that one day soon my left eye will close all the way again, I can start wearing my contacts again, and dip my brushes into the palettes of colors that will once again grace my lids. Plus every once in a while you need a pick me up.....

Now what did I buy?

I bought Smashbox Halo Hydrating Perfecting Shadow Duo - Petal / Plum. It looked really interesting and really who could say no to trying this:

What it is:
A revolutionary perfecting eyeshadow that dramatically minimizes the signs of aging.

What it does:
Unlike typical eyeshadows that can accentuate fine lines and crepiness, this advanced formulation of 48 minerals (a silk peptide-soy lipid complex that helps to moisturize and firm eyelids) and Halo's patented hydration system improves the texture and overall appearance of lids while imparting beautiful, soft color. The innovative packaging allows you to twist the top and shave off the perfect amount of base and crease shadow every time.

Research Results:
-In 10 minutes, eyelids appear 60% smoother and firmer
-In 4 weeks, eyelids appear 98% less crepey.

I think it warrants a test... don't you?

But that's not the only thing that will be in the box. Since I am a fan of Sephora on Facebook, they let there fans in on a little treat. Spend $25 and you get this tote bag(TOTE09 is the code and I have no idea how long it will last):

I don't exactly need this bag, but I want it. And it could become useful to me. Especially when I take my trip to Italy this January. Oh yea.... I forgot to mention that. This year's Christmas/Birthday gift from Mark to me is a trip to Italy. I will be meeting him there. I'm really excited about it. I've never been to Rome, and we are going to see a lot of stuff. Most of which he has already seen, but it will still be fun. It will be like having my own personal tour guide. Ha ha.

I'll have a full product review with pics once everything gets here.

On the recovery front, I'm seeing more movement in my face on the left. It's a slow recovery, but I'm grateful I am recovering.
