New Year's Look 2011

Peruana got me this Glitz and Glam kit full of samples of illuminators, shimmery shadows and whatnot -- she hinted I could review it but...we all know a tutorial is more fun.  Right?  Feel free to correct me.

This is one of those Sephora favourites where they give you a ton of minis and one or two full size things.  They have all of them on sale for around $35 CAD right now, but a word of warning:  Tod bought the mascara one a couple years back and before she'd gotten halfway through the kit, a bunch of them had dried out.

The kit itself looks like this:

I already have a bucketload of Stila Lip Glazes and a really, really ancient High Beam, but I've never tried anything else from here!  So I woke up this morning and decided to wing it.  During this video, I decided to just grab whatever was there and use only products from this kit.  Which I...almost do.  

And for some reason, my camera just awkwardly didn't record the first step or my intro.  I used the Buxom Stay-There shadow in Pug on both lids, and Tod tells you how much she loves pugs.
