This site was created in response to a need for accurate, up-to-date information about product launches, GWP offers, and store exlusives offered by some of today’s hottest beauty brands. It will cover a variety of brands, including Bare Escentuals, Bobbi Brown, Laura Geller, Mally, Smashbox, Tarte, and Urban Decay, plus a few drugstore favorites here and there. The focus will be on:

  1. What is it? (new product launches)
  2. Where do I get it? (sales channel availability)
  3. How do I get it for less? (sales, discounts, and coupons)
  4. How does it look/work? (swatches and product reviews)

In case you’re curious about my qualifications, I’ve been a writer/freelancer/blogger for more than ten years now, mainly in the mobile technology space, and it’s hard to believe the the tenth anniversary of my first site, PocketGoddess.com, is fast approaching. Though I started relatively late in the game as far as makeup is concerned (I was not one of those lipstick obsessed eight year olds) I have been collecting Bare Escentuals eye colors for the last several years as well as experimenting with other new brands and products. When I decided that it was time for a little something different, Missing Utopia was born and I hope you’ll enjoy using the site as much as I’ll enjoy running it.
