When I was still in college, I lived extremely to a theatre / costume shop that sold Ben Nye, La Femme and other theatrical makeup brands that many beauty bloggers are in love with right now. I, being a dumbass then did NOT pay any attention to those brands that were sitting literally right underneath my finger tips.
Now that I am no longer living anywhere near a costume shop, the only thing I can think about now is how much I want to try the La Femme and Ben Nye brands. While feeling like the idiot I am for not the goldmine I had just sitting before me for two freakin’ years. So now I am left drooling over all these beautiful swatches that are popping up everywhere on line, and I can’t do anything! **SOB** Anyway I plan on ordering some Ben Nye and La Femme from MakeupMania.com. They have some amazing prices, I just don’t know anything about their tax / shipping policies.
For those of you who do not know about these two brands, there are several videos on the internet, especially youtube that demonstrate all the wonderous things about these brands. Here are some links to blogs that have gone gaga over these products:
For swatches and pictures galore of the Ben Nye 12 eyeshadow palette that retails for around $45 head on over to PurseBuzz
For info on La Femme, especially the loose powders, some of which are perfect dupes for MAC pigments, check out this you tube video:
