NYX Butter Gloss Review & Swatches

NYX Butter Gloss

Possibly one of the best and cheapest glosses on the market right now is the NYX Butter Gloss ($5) in my opinion. These beautifully flavored glosses are available in twelve shades…

But that’s part of my problem.


Too Faced Jingle All the Way Review & Swatches

Too Faced Jingle All the Way 1

The Too Faced Jingle All the Way Set ($25) fills both my need for tech and beauty in one very cute gift (for myself!)! This eyeshadow and face palette includes essential shades for creating a festive eye look for the Holidays plus you get an iPhone 5 case designed by celebrity decorator and TV personality Mary McDonald!

Too Faced Jingle All the Way Shadow Palette

Nifty right?


Pacifica Coconut Kiss Creamy Lip Butter Review & Swatches

Pacifica Coconut Kiss Creamy Lip Balm

It looks like rouge but Pacifica Coconut Kiss Creamy Lip Butter ($10) is all about the lips! No one is going to say a word though if you slip a dab on your cheeks, I won’t tell.

I LOVE this stuff. At first I was disappointed but it takes a sec to wriggle its way into your heart but when it does you’ll find yourself reaching for it over and over and over again.

Did I mention the super cheap as chips price tag for ten bucks?


Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge Review

Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge

The Boscia Konjac Cleansing Sponge ($18) recently launched and I couldn’t be happier as it has made me a double cleanser lover. I have a few Konjac Sponges, they aren’t really a new beauty epidemic however, Boscia will likely make them a more wide spread phenomenon here in the US for those that aren’t terribly familiar with Asian beauty tools and products.

As much as I’d like to be a double cleaning person I’m not. When I get home at the end of the night I typically remove my eye makeup with an oil based eye makeup remover and proceed to follow up with a cleansing oil. Occasionally if I have the time I do a double cleanse. Double cleanses consist of cleansing first with a cleansing oil and following up with a lathering cleanser or foaming cleanser of some sort.

Konjac Sponges kinda make you a believer of double cleansing because they are great gentle exfoliating sponge that really get your face super squeaky clean.

Take a look!


Too Faced Be Merry & Bright Set Review & Swatches

Too Faced Be Merry Bright Palettes

The Too Faced Be Merry & Bright Set ($45) is a limited edition set that features two palettes released with the Too Faced Holiday 2013 Collection. You get two eyeshadow palettes entitled Be Merry and Be Bright each containing six shadows each as well as two cheek colors and a full size Too Faced Lash Injection Mascara.

This a great set to break up and gift to two separate people if you want (chances are you’ll just want to keep both yourself though!).

Take a look!
