Tarte cosmetics makes some of my favorite eyeshadows of all time. This collection of toasty warm tones is the perfect complement to the holiday season. This palette includes 12 gorgeous shades from rich firey metallics and shimmers to beautifully pigmented crease and brow bone shades. A tartelette must have!
This set of deluxe mini lip glosses makes for the perfect gift! Marc Jacobs Beauty does gloss right with perfect nudes, vibrant berry tones and daring lip toper shades. You get it all with this stunning set and its a steal at only $39.00.
Natasha Denona is widely known for her luxurious eyeshadow palettes but don't sleep on her equally as luxurious face and body products. Since purchasing the brands sculpt and glow palette back in April, I was quickly introduced to these single pan face and body shimmer powders. Its a velvety soft formula perfect for a buildable, all-over glow available in 3 gorgeous shades.
Though this palette is gorgeous, the price tag is a little steep for 6 lid toppers and a crease shade. Once this baby went on sale I snagged it because these lid shades are indeed beautiful on the lid enhanced with a little MAC fix+.
Apres Ski Glow Face Palette $54.00
As a pretty pale sista, I'm always on the lookout for a highlight thats not too stark but doesn't leave a muddy, ashy film on my NC15-20 skin. Becca is the highlight Mecca :) and this Apres Ski holiday face palette allows me to play with light using tones that compliment my porcelain skin. This gorgeous palette includes 2 limited edition shades; a vibrant new mineral blush in "Winter Berry" and a new icy, prismatic highlight in "Icicle". These newbies are paired with 4 of Becca's permanent collection shades.
Full-on Lip Cream &Full-on Lip Polish
Lip plumping glosses aren't for everyone but for those who dont mind that distinct minty tingle and enjoy that luscious high shine factor, these lip creams and polishes are for you. Lots of shades to choose from. Perfect on its own or on top of your favorite lipstick.
MARC JACOBS BEAUTY
Genius Gel Super–Charged Oil–Free Foundation
Though i'm late to the genius gel foundation party, I've heard nothing but good things about this formula from all my favorite beauty gurus. I'm a go full or go home kind of gal when it comes to my foundations coverage and this luxurious baby doesn't disappoint. A little goes a long way with this one. It's buildable without looking cakey when applied with a beauty blender, leaving a glamourous air brushed finish.
ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS
Mini Liquid Lipstick Set $25.00
ABH liquid lipsticks are by far one of my favorite formulas; velvety, quick-drying and comfortable on the lips. These generously sized minis are the perfect gift at only $25.00 . Three rich, warm shades ideal for these cold winter months.
(TOP) Peach Perfect Mattifying Setting Powder
Peaches and Cream Collection $32.00
You never know how much setting powder gets into our mouths until you try this! one here. Its literally sweet and peachy while doing its job setting the under eyes and face. So if you enjoy that distinct peach scent (and taste) that Too Faced is known for, then this gorgeous mattifying powder is perfect for your collection.
(BOTTOM) Just Peachy Velvet Matte Eyeshadow Palette
Peaches and Cream Collection $45.00
Its been the year of the warm-toned palette with one coming out every other month it seems. But if you're in the market for an all matte set of shades, this palette by Too faced is worth its weight in delicious golden peaches ;)
The Perfect Light Highlighting Powder
Comparable to Natasha Denonas face & body shimmer, this stunningly subtle highlight gives you a radiant, glowing from within highlighted look. This is the brand that gave us our coveted custom enhancer drops so you know you cant go wrong with the liquids perfect powder topper.
Honestly ,I have mixed feelings about this product. While the coverage is decent, the formula feels like it never quite sets on my face regardless of what powder I choose to set it with. This particular collection of Tarte products is known for their hydrating properties so perhaps this concealer is best for those dewy "no makeup" makeup looks. Sidenote: am I the only one who thinks this product has a strong acidic aroma or was I just sold a bad batch?
OUT OF STOCK
I always look forward to the Sephora Favorites collections. This one in particular is going to be a tough act to follow. With 5 full-sized products and 10 deluxe sample products, there's something suitable for every occasion. From nudes to neutrals to berry tones, this set is ideal for stocking stuffers or even better for the one who just wants to have it al!
This liquid version of UD's best selling lipstick is a gorgeous quick-drying comfort matte formula. In their wide range of shades I was able to find my perfect "your lips but better" shade in the color "Backtalk". Works great with their 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil!
