Just when I thought Britney Spears had pulled it together…

… she shows up at the Grammy’s wearing this:

From the waist up, this is a totally adorable look (beachy/retro brunette waves included.)  But the fact that her stylist would allow her to walk out the door in unflattering granny-panties (dressed up, of course, with a lace skirt… this is the GRAMMYS, people) is beyond me.

I’m not delusional, right?  Is there some sort of fabulous pant-less trend that I’m unaware of??

Beauty Review: Sephora's Blockbuster Palette

I got the Sephora Blockbuster Palette for Christmas this year and just about fell over with excitement!  As a college student on a budget, I’ve had such a hard time experimenting with new beauty trends because of the cost ($5 for a new eyeshadow seems cheap until you need three different colors for a new look!)

This kit is valued at $400, but sells for under $50 during the holidays.  (I believe they only sell it in the months leading up to Christmas, but they have comparable—and less expensive!—versions year-round at Sephora.com.)

I will admit, at first glance, this kit seems totally intimidating— even for a makeup lover like myself.  There are so many choices, it can be hard to know where to start.  But once you get used to all those choices, it is a super useful item to have in your beauty toolbox.

The quality of the makeup is what sets this kit apart.  Everything goes on smooth and lasts all day (or night!)  It even comes with a little booklet that teaches you how to create the highly coveted “smoky eye.”

So, head on over to your nearest Sephora store and pick up one of their makeup kits!  You won’t be disappointed!

Has anyone else used this kit (or any other kits by Sephora)??  Is there another palette that you absolutely adore?
