Bare Minerals Simply Irresistible Review & Swatches

Bare Minerals Simply Irresistible Nine Piece Collection

Bare Minerals Simply Irresistible is a new 9 Piece Color Collection for Eyes, Lips, and Cheeks for Holiday 2012. If you’re more of a traditionalist and aren’t really loving all the Ready pressed products that BE has recently been releasing you’ll absolutely love this set.

This takes us back to Bare Minerals as we originally know them, their loose format. The Simply Irresistible set contains essentials for a complete holiday look (or two, or three…) for as little as $49. Quite the bargain! Plus it has a must have shade of blush that you can’t pass up on if you love Bare Minerals Fruit Cocktail.

The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Lip Balm Review

A great way to start off my Body Shop Vanillas Bliss Lip Balm review is to tell you Led Zeppelin was on Letterman last night. Go on, you know you want to head to youTube and catch it if you haven’t. Seeing Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones as, well, as old men is a surreal experience sometimes. It’s something I’ll never get used too.

When I was a teenager my bedroom was peppered with Robert Plant posters, shirtless, hair wildly waving around his head, and that gorgeous smile on his face. He was such a beautiful boy and perhaps a little bit of a gateway drug into the universe of vintage rock for me. Zepplin, Blue Cheer, The Who, and so many others have followed me well into my adulthood. I’m not THAT old but I have to say, they just don’t make music like that any more….!

Speaking of classics! The Body Shop Vanilla Bliss Lip Balm may be my gateway drug into the world of the Vanilla Bliss Holiday 2012 Collection from the Body Shop and a possible instant classic!

Lancome Bordeaux L’Absolu Rouge Holiday 2012 Review & Swatches

Lancome Bordeaux LAbsolu Rouge Holiday 2012

Lancome L’Absolut Rouge in Bordeaux premieres in the Lancome Holiday 2012 Makeup Collection. Just when I thought I wasn’t going to find my perfect shade of Holiday red lipstick Lancome gifts it to me in this stunning shade!

Everyone always says that red is easy enough to wear so long as you find the RIGHT shade of it to wear. For years I thought that very untrue. I was terrified of the shade and felt all kinds of clown-y in all the true shades of red I tried. I avoided the color for many, many years but happily embraced it when I discovered that warm shades of red are rather flattering on me.

Bordeaux is one of those easy shades of red that I can embrace. It’s that festive shade of red that puts me in a Holiday mood and completes all my looks for the season.

You NEED it if you love warm shades of red.
