Dude, the hardest thing in the world about Holiday beauty shopping is choosing a Brush Set. We can sit around and tell ourselves we have far to many brushes and we don’t need more. But the Holiday comes and with it massive brush sets and all that pep talk goes right out the window.
We start reverse pep talking ourselves into actually buying MORE brushes because they are such a good deal.
Sigh…the life of a beauty junkie. We need to spend more money on therapy than beauty.
The Stila Holiday 2012 Brush Set ($28) passed across my desk recently and of course, I instantly had to share it with you!
Kat Von D Foiled Love Liquid Lipstick ($19) launched in four shades for Fall 2012. These are a dramatic liquid lipstick with a rich color pay off.
I was a little scared of the shade I tried, Adora.
Take a look!
I picked up a few of the E.L.F. Jumbo Eyeshadow Sticks along with the Lip Gloss Pencils. Since I liked the lip pencils so much I’m hoping these Jumbo Eyeshadow Sticks prove just as nice.
They are available in 10 shades and each is a mere $2 bucks each! Perhaps they’ll make a nice base for powder eyeshadow and pigments.
I’m busy testing at the moment but here are a few swatches of the shades I got!
L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Diamonds Mascara is a newly launched rendition of the original Voluminous formula with an injection of “diamond sparkle” for the Holidays.
I really dig sparkly mascara around the Holidays. It could be dubbed juvenile but I think a little sparkle on lashes during the holiday season keeps makeup festive. However, I wrote off L’Oreal Voluminous Million Lashes Diamonds Mascara before I even tried it since the original formula did nothing for my lashes…
However, diamond sparkle is so bloody tempting isn’t it?
I’m feeling a little like Jack today after discovering the Tarte Bright Eyed & Beautiful High-Performance Eye Enhancing Tool!
What’s this? What’s this? There’s color everywhere What’s this? There’s white things in the air! What’s this?
What is this tool!? Do I need it? Probably!
