Stila Positively Pink Cheek Palette Review & Swatches

Stila introduced their Positively Pink Set for Breast Cancer Awareness back in October. You might recall the whimsical design of the palette as Stila introduced their Love at First Blush Palette in a similiar style. If you already own Love at First Blush you can still go ahead and indulge in the Positively Pink Cheek Palette as well since the colors are different.

The set comes with a 0.28 oz blush palette as well as a mini Stila Lipglaze in Splendor. It’s $18 but I used a 20% Off promo code and got free shipping as well so I felt like it was a nice little deal.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Want You To Want Me Eye Shadow Palette Review & Swatches

The Anastasia Beverly Hills Want You To Want Me Eye Shadow Palette is a limited edition Holiday 2012 Set that features nine shades of buttery eyeshadow, an applicator, eyeliner, and Anastassia’s legendary Brow Gel.

This is $34 and I suppose there are a ton of massive sets you can indulge in this Holiday season for a little more or around the same price. But I do urge you not to miss this. Take a look at it your next trip to Sephora as I do think it could easily be overlooked. The package presentation, usefulness of the eyeshadows, and little extras might just sway you to gift it to a loved one or pick it up for yourself.

Review: Need Help Waking Up? Lush Back for Breakfast Shower Gel Will Do the Trick!

The weather is getting cooler now and I just want to turn over, throw the covers over my head, and sleep all day. I’m so NOT a morning person. When the alarm goes off I’m the type that wants five minutes hours more.

It could go below zero and I still absolutely positively need to shower in the AM because that jolt of warm water is the only thing that will wake me up since I don’t drink coffee.

The other thing that brings my half asleep self back to the land of the living? Lush Back for Breakfast Shower Gel, of course.

Sneak Peek: Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm

As you know from an earlier post I did the new Clinique Chubby Stick Intense Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm will be launching very shortly on counter. I actually had heard these would be a Spring 2013 release but looks like we won’t have to wait as Santa is delivering them to counters around December. Heck, if you’re lucky, maybe your counter already has them!

This new formulation is the same great formula we know and love infused with shea butter, mango seed butter, and jojoba seed oil to keep our lips soft and supple. What changed? The pigmentation of the balms! They now offer a new fuller color pay off for a more intense finish.

I got shivers just thinking about it. I love the original formula but I so could so get on board with more color pay off!

Here’s a little sneak peek of what the new shades look like and a review will be upcoming shortly!
