Kate here! Get it while it’s hot! Saturdays at Sephora!Say good-bye to 2008!!! I can’t believe its the end of the year. I just can’t! 2008 went by just way too fast. I know that I really did accomplish a lot this year…I rang the new year in in Paris with one of my best friends, I graduated from college, saw two good friends get married, got into and started grad school, and fell in love with about 50 new cosmetic products all at the same time! And I still didn’t feel like it was enough—the accomplisments were plenty, but there’s always room in the train case for more product. (Or in my case, the train case, two 8×8 plastic crates, a mini three-drawer plastic thing, and a couple of vanity drawers….)

In case you haven’t gotten your fix yet either there’s some great markdowns in store and at to be aware of–especially if there were special sets or palettes you had your eye on. Many are $10 or $20 or more off the original price. Stock up!

Vincent Longo is exiting sephora stores and they have some of my favorite products on sale – Dew Finish foundation is now 1/2 off at $24.25 Sets of four lip glosses for $19. Eye shadows for $12.

Ojon Tawaka “The Ball”s are $35 (down from $65). These balls of mud come in their own little wooden bowl/dish. They are fabulous exfoliators that smooth and hydrate at the same time. A great gift for someone or even greater keeper for yourself.

And if you don’t buy anyting go to and buy the LORAC snake charmer palette which was a limited edition from like two years ago. Its got four gorgeous exclusive eyeshadows and a blush. I wear this palette ALL the time and its so amazing and only $20.

Lots of love to you all and see you in 2009!
