The moment you’ve all been waiting for is here: the Sephora Friends & Family Sale is on now! Use code FF2010 for 20% off Sephora.com purchases (until November 3).
On a somewhat related note, Sephora sent me a birthday gift this year, clearly not to be outdone by Anthropologie’s birthday gift! As a Sephora Beauty Insider (free membership) I received a coupon redeemable for a free birthday beauty gift set at Sephora.
The Sephora birthday gift includes a mini powder eyeshadow, mini eyeliner pencil, and a mini mascara. Check out more photos of the Sephora Beauty Insider Birthday Gift Set… › Continue reading

Meilily Product Photos: L’Occitane Limited Edition Peony Makeup Collection!
Exciting news! L’Occitane’s limited edition makeup collection is here! In select L’Occitane stores only, this rare garden-inspired Peony Makeup Collection is a must-see.
While wandering through a L’Occitane shop, I was drawn to a display of what appeared to be colorful flower seed packets. Imagine my surprise when I realized that L’Occitane, best known as a bath and skincare brand, has a new makeup collection out, and a pretty one at that. Each limited edition makeup shade is named after a particular peony.
Meilily’s top picks from the L’Occitane Peony Makeup Collection:
- Liquid Shine Lip Colour in 01 Marie Riviere (a flattering medium-pigmented gloss inspired by a “delicate salmon-pink peony,” according to L’Occitane)
- Facecolour Powder in 02 Valse de Vienne (a pretty “glossy pale pink” blush/eyeshadow)
- Lipstick in 03 Mme Louis Henry (a very sheer warm-pink shimmer lipstick inspired by “a pink peony with old-gold patina reflections”)
