Guerlain Illusion (660) Rouge Automatique Review & Swatches

Guerlain Illusion Rouge Automatique

Guerlain Illusion (660) Rouge Automatique ($35) is one two limited edition Rouge Automatique Lipstick shades introduced with the Guerlain Crazy Paris Holiday 2013 Collection.

Illusion is a shade of lipstick I’d likely skip over at first glance but it’s such a unique shade and rather fun for the Holidays versus festive you might just love it.

MAC Nocturnals Lip Gloss Set Review & Swatches

MAC Nocturnals Lip Gloss Set

I got my hands on one of the four MAC Nocturnals Lip Gloss ($32.50). MAC introduced four Nocturnals Lip Gloss Sets that will be available for a limited time for the Holiday season.

Each set contains one MAC Dazzleglass and three MAC Cremesheen Glasses weighting in at 0.08 oz each. The shades are all repromotes in this particularly set so prior to indulging check your stash to be sure you don’t already own the shade.

Tarte of Giving Collector’s Set & Travel Bag Review & Swatches

Tarte of Giving Collectors Set Travel Bag 42

The Tarte of Giving Collector’s Set & Travel Bag ($59) is one of Tarte’s massive Holiday 2013 Gift Sets that includes shadows, blush, skincare, and the kitchen sink (I might have made that last part up).

As a brand that is legendary for going big for the Holidays Tarte has gifted us with so many wonderful, beautiful sets this Holiday season! The Tarte of Giving Collector’s Set & Travel Bag is just one reason to love gifting instead of getting as imagine giving this to a friend this year and watching her or his eyes light up! It’s such a stunning selection of Tarte makeup and all housed in a beautiful hanging travel bag.

Of course, the greedy people (I’m not naming names, COUGH the Muse) will want to keep it for themselves.


NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation Review & Swatches

NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation1

NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation ($38 plus $10 for the compact) is kinda my new best friend. Scratch that, it’s kinda life changing. I don’t reach for cream foundations often…granted I like BB Creams and I like cream foundations! I just don’t like compact cream foundations because they are often quite heavy and provide a little too much coverage and dare I say even though they promise a matte finish they feel quite oily and greasy. Plus they transfer all crazy-like.

Cream foundations are ever evolving and some brand or another is always trying to improve on the compact cream formula but very few succeed. When I originally heard about the NARS Radiant Cream Compact Foundation I was skeptical.

After trying it my mind is a little blown.

MAC Stroke of Midnight Mineralize Brush Kit Review

MAC Stroke of Midnight Mineralize Brush Kit 8

You NEED the MAC Stroke of Midnight Mineralize Brush Kit! This set contains four mini MAC fiber brushes for face and eyes plus a makeup bag for traveling with them.

Check it and find out why it’s my favorite (just a note, I just realized that I didn’t take photos of each brush. I’m working on 90 minutes of sleep here (too much Halloween partying does a blog bad) and this morning at stupid o’clock aka 5 AM when I was writing this post I noticed I forgot to take the pictures of the brushes! I’ll be sure to update shortly, sorry).
