As you can tell, I really liked the color payoff of "Lust" way better. The lighter colors from "Greed" barely showed up on my skin at all, though the black and shimmery gray weren't too shabby. With a bit of primer, these shadows could be great. For $4.99 a piece, they're definitely worth it for those who are just starting to use makeup, want to build up their collection, or just want to play around with some colors. I have yet to really test them so more updates to come on their lasting power. I will be doing some looks with these in the future, so look out for them. Let me know if you've tried these palettes and whether you like them or not!

Note: The product mentioned above was given to me for review and the thoughts reflect my own personal opinions.
Overall, I liked the collection but wasn't overly impressed. I would definitely wear some of the things I saw, though the dresses ran from about $30- $80. Not sure if I want to shell out that much for a dress from Target, even if it's by Zac Posen. In the end, I decided not to pick up anything but maybe I'll give it a second thought next time I'm in target. I did really like this 'Zac' tank though. Really cute! Might go back to pick that up.
Did you guys see the Zac Posen for Target? Like anything? Buy anything? Hated it? Let me know!

Epistick! This product has been much raved about on the web for a while and I just had to throw my 2 cents in. I've been in love with this for some time and have been meaning to write about it, just never got around to it. What is a Epistick you may ask? Also called an epilator sometimes, it removes unwanted hair. This particular one in the picture is used to remove facial hair. It's been all the craze in Japan. You could use it on any part of you face such as your cheek, forehead, chin but I use it above my upper lip...to remove that unwanted "mini-stache". It removes the root of the hair too so the idea is that the hair will grow back less noticeable. All you have to do is bend it by holding one side in each hand and then roll up and down. Let me warn you though...it can be tad bit painful or uncomfortable the first couple times you use it but you will eventually get use to it, just like tweezing. Great thing is that you can find them on eBay for less than $2. It's shipped from overseas so shipping maybe take awhile but well worth it. Here's a video I found on Youtube of the epistick in action (sorry, not sure what they're saying):
" All Sales Final :American Eagle Outfitters, Inc. is closing its Martin + Osa concept, including stores and the online business. Thank you."
I suspect that this is only the first wave of price reductions. There will probably be more sales as they move into full closing down the stores and websites. If there's something you really like, grab it now with the 30%. Otherwise, wait awhile and see what cheap finds you can dig up!
