Buy It: Saks Fifth Avenue Polished Face Kit
If you're anything like me, your makeup collection is a bit of a mishmash. I use about five or six products on a daily basis--ones that I've actually purchased here and there--but in the rest of my bag, it's a hodgepodge of Fashion Week freebies, gift-with-purchase remnants, Sephora impulse buys, and stuff I read about in Allure. I've always wanted to go to a makeup counter, get a makeover, and then buy some products; my mom did this with me when she deemed me ready to wear makeup, sometime in middle school. Nowadays, however, I'm kind of afraid of a lot of the makeup-counter workers, both for their aggressive manner and potentially inappropriate suggestions. I want to look like a better version of me, not someone--or something--else.

Which is where this ingenious polished face kit, available exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue, comes in. It combines the best of Saks' makeup counters--shadow from Dior, blush from YSL, highlighter from Nars, lip gloss from Armani, mascara from Guerlain, plus moisturizer from Chanel--creating one universally flattering, yet minimal, easy to apply palette. The best part is that it comes in a leather Marc Jacobs pouch that, in a pinch, could double as a chic clutch. Considering all that you get (every product is full-sized), $198 seems like a good deal to me. And, really, a simplified makeup routine that makes you feel glamorous whilst applying it is priceless, no?

Thanks for this GREAT heads up! I snagged one right away and I love it! It's beyond fab! Also, I signed up for a Saks credit card so I could save 10% on the purchase (I don't really plan to use the card much at all, I just thought I'd like the 10%!)
