J.Crew beauty final sale (Essie for J.Crew Swatches)

J.Crew is having an additional 50% off sale items in-store right now. Although there were no petite items to be found, my local store had a few great deals on collaboration items (which make great gifts!).

My friend picked up the Stila for J.Crew lipgloss trio for $12 (three FULL size tubes - currently online for 40% off) which includes three juicy colors - Grapefuit, Starfruit, and Rasperry. They also had singles in-store for $5 each. She already loves these lip glazes and was thrilled to find more at such a low price. She also got the Cosabella lace thong trio for $18 (individually sold for $19 each).
I got the little Essie box containing baby-sized jars of Jelly Apple (a candy red), Clam Bake (red-orange), Innocent (dusty mauve-pink), and Prima Ballerina (pale, pink-cream). Retail $20, on final sale for $5. Swatches in order:
The two brights were super easy to apply (runnier formula). Above is two coats with no top coat. The pinks were creamier and streakier to apply. I love all these colors for Spring/Summer.


I think Clam Bake is the most universally-flattering bright shade. I've seen a similar shade in their catalogs against pale-skinned models and I can see it looking just as nice against dark or tanned skin.


  1. wow, great deals at J. Crew!! i used to love Stila lip glosses but haven't tried them in years as I've slowly migrated over to MAC. i might give these a shot again though as it's a great deal!

    and those nail polish colors are super pretty! i really like the Clam Bake and Jelly Apple colors on you.

    cute and little
    come join the Color Brigade!

  2. I love when I find great deals on quality makeup! Awesome nail polish finds!

  3. Oooh I need to stop by J.Crew! $5 is a great deal for those nail polishes :D

  4. *ENVIOUS*My local J. Crew had 50% off last weekend too but there was NOTHING left in the sale section (literally nothing except for 10-15 sweaters in large sizes). I have been wanting the Stila gloss and was hoping I'd be able to find some on further sale but no more. sigh. It's probably a good thing. :)

  5. I wish there's a J Crew in Canada!!! I don't think it's possible to find 4 Essie nail polishes for $5!

  6. aww the nail polishes are soooo beautiful love them <3 they look really nice on you >3< But I'm sad that j.crew doesn't ship to Europe too (like a lot of other online shops ><") Great haul!!

  7. OHhh great pictures! The Essie nail polishes look so pretty, I love every color! I loove your camera and the pictures! :)

  8. "Innocent" looks pretty! It actually looks like "Fondola Gondola," another Essie nail polish that I purchased from J. Crew. I didn't know they sold nail polish until I saw it and it's my absolute favorite color.

  9. These are so pretty! I should've looked at the beauty section before placing an order last week. Thanks for the heads up, I will stop by JCrew if I make it to the mall this weekend.

  10. Lovely shades! Do you know if they're exclusive to J.Crew?

  11. I have to say that I LOVE this nail polish set as well-- I loved it so much that I bought one for my best friend as well!

    I have only worn Innocent and Clambake so far; the other colors are very similar to ones I already have so I haven't opened them. Which shade is your favorite?
