Cool beauty storage from the Conatiner Store

Las Vegas now has a Container Store! I was invited to the Blogger Sneak Peek at the new store and got the 411 on all their great products. It has everything you need to organize any room of your home. I was quite impressed with all the items made just for organizing cosmetics. The clear acrylic organizers for nail polish, lipstick and makeup brushes look so great you can keep them on top of the counter. They are also reasonably priced around $6 each.

I did not see these when I was in the store - but what a great idea! If you have those days when you can't wear your contacts, these makeup glasses are just the thing!

Makeup glasses, $3.99
A couple of other mentions:
 The Gal Pal Ice Bag - sometimes the gel ice packs don't cut it.

For a different look - The Grassy Organizer for a different look for your countertop.

The Container Store is located at Town Square Las Vegas.

Santa Margherita promotes namesake nail polish at the Beauty Bar

My favorite wine in the world has to be Santa Margherita's Pinot Grigio. I would hang out in a closet so I wouldn't have share! Now the famous winemaker has created a nail polish line inspired by their wines. The polishes come in shades that mimic their popular vintages of Pinot Grigio, Prosecco, Sparkling Rose and Chianti Classico. They are not available is stores, but you can sign up to win one of 200 limited-edition Santa Margherita custom nail polish kits on their Facebook page.

Revlon beauty mini-haul at ULTA

I stopped into ULTA to use my coupon and decided to look for eyeshadow palette. I had been reading about the collection makeup artist Gucci Westman created for Revlon, so I picked up the palette. I absolutely love it. I have trouble wearing greys and blacks because of my fair complexion without looking like a raccoon.
It comes with four shadows and a liner. The back has diagram directions. It works okay without an eye primer, but I would recommend using one. The liner works great, especially if you are in a hurry and just want something easy. Revlon was buy 1 get 1 half off that day and with my ULTA coupon and a Revlon Coupon I found in the store, I got the palette and a Revlon Color Burst Lip Butter for $9!
