Winter Collections 2012
Bath & Body Works has released three new Moisture Swirl Hand Soaps for Holiday 2012. These are a limited edition hand soaps that seem to be available in store only (I haven’t had the pleasure of seeing them online).
Twisted Peppermint, Vanilla Bean Noel, and Winter Candy Apple are the three scents you can choose from. I picked up Twisted Peppermint recently, here’s some thoughts!
YOU need to gift friends and family with the joy that is the Liplicious I Love Twisted Peppermint Lipgloss Set ($18.50). This festive lipgloss set houses three full size Twisted Peppermint flavored Liplicious Lipglosses.
You’ll get Bath & Body Works cult favorite Twisted Peppermint (vanilla with swirls of peppermint) Lipgloss as well as two exclusive flavors in this set! Exclusive flavors include Twisted Peppermint Cocoa and Twisted Peppermint Berry which are only available in this set and not sold alone.
The weather has been mighty mild around here but it doesn’t have me fooled. That’s why Sandy Santa is tucked safely in my bath and body drawer. JUST in case that cold winter weather comes blowing in I’ll be at the ready with Sandy Santa’s exfoliating powers!
Let’s take a look!
Wow, Bath & Body Works Liplicious Gold Flawless 24K Lip Illuminator is a five dollar upgrade from the original lipgloss and comes in an LE packaging ready for gift giving.
Ready for something new and exciting from Liplicious?
Clarins Odyssey Face Palette ($55) is a new highlighter powder released from Clarins for Holiday 2012. Clarins describes it as a shimmering, lightweight pressed powder that you use on your face, neck, or decolette. That’s the key word, “lightweight pressed powder”…! Although it contains an overspray of gold it actually works as a lovely setting powder due to the universally flattering shade of beige peach. I set my concealer with it this morning.
Dontcha just love versatile beauty?
Sephora I am stuffing stockings all around with your Nail Wand! It’s super cute!
Sephora really chuffed me silly with their Lipgloss Wand and now here’s a great little stackable Nail Wand for the Holiday Season.
You’ll want this if you’re a nail girl!
I told you about the Lush UK Fragrance Round
a few days ago which happens tomorrow. I just wanted to tell you to keep your eyes peeled on Lush’s NA Facebook
as there will be a fragrance party happening in the US on December 13 (confirmed this with Lush this morning). I don’t have exact details but they told me there would indeed be a round here in the US and the same fragrances the UK is getting we will also be getting.
I don’t have prices of fragrances but here’s the list from the UK:
- Rose Jam
- Cream Candy
I hope this great news completes your wishes for the Holiday Season I have all of these perfumes already but I’ll be hauling a few backups! It’s not Christmas without a little Lush Fragrance in it!
Remember keep your eyes on the Lush Facebook for more detail as they become available.
P.S. I’m VERY behind on comments. So sorry! I’m replying as fast as I can Thank you for leaving them! They are food for my inspiration!
Almay Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer is a newly launched cream eyeshadow released in four shades for Spring 2013. These cream shadows act as an all over color eyeshadow or as a prep and prime shade for powder.
The four shades were created to flatter a range of eye colors such as blue, hazel, and brown. Almay carefully selected shades they felt would flatter different color eyes and marketed each liquid shadow towards that eye type.
As you know, I’m all about wearing whatever I want on my eyes. I’m not really convinced any one shade of shadow is meant for my brown eyes. I like soft browns and I like bold aquas and I love pink and gold…really any color shade of eyeshadow is cool by me. The only reason I’d avoid certain shades would be because some clash with my dark circles. Aside from that I never had any issues wearing any shade I wanted to. So I’m not completely sold on all the marketing I see lately for shades that would be “suitable” for my eye color.
So what did I do? I was a rebel and hauled three of the four shades Almay introduced in the new Intense I-Color Liquid Shadow + Color Primer. Even the one for green eyes…nanner nanner!
If we’re giving awards out for cute packaging the Body Shop Body Butter Lollipop Gift Set should get one. I got a few of these darling little lollipop shaped sets for friends and family during one of the Body Shop’s rather awesome Holiday sales. Each set contains five body butters for $25 but I was lucky enough to haul it 50% Off. Nice!
Take a look!
Shu Uemura Ultime8 Sublime Beauty Cleansing Oil is a newly launched cleansing oil to the brand that’s made of eight different botanical origin oils.
I was running low on cleansing oil anyway so I indulged in the large bottle of this. I generally love Shu’s Cleansing Oil so I was all about a new formulation.
Take a look!
When the weather outside is frightful you’ll need a little Lush Snow Globe Soap to remind you of the warm days of Summer!
Lush doesn’t want me to tell you that Snow Globe Soap is like Sexy Peel Soap on crack cocaine. It’s like Sexy Peel and Lemslip got together and had mad, passionate sex and nine months later they had a Snow Globe baby!
Oh joy to my loving soap world! This scent is amazings! Thank god it’s back for Holiday 2012 so I can stock up on it and brace myself for the long winter ahead!
Aside from Philosophy, Bliss Shower Gels happen to be my very favorite formula! So I’m loving all over the Bliss Bubbly Gift Set for Holiday 2012 thanks to the jumbo sized Raspberry Champagne Soapy Suds Shower Gel it comes along with.
For a limited time or as quick as you can say Santa Baby add this to my Christmas List, Raspberry Champagne fragranced Bliss products are available in this sweet little gift set.
Actually spoil yourself. Tis the season to be greedy!
Add a little sparkle to your Holiday looks with the Sephora Mini Glitter Liner Set! This $15 includes five mini shades of Glitter Eyeliner for adding a touch of glittery goodness to your lash line or lashes.

Loves me the Hello Kitty Wild Thing Comb ($12)! This was launched with the Hello Kitty Holiday 2012 Collection at Sephora and after sampling one for myself I quickly ordered one for my sister too.
I’m one for using a wide tooth comb in the shower to comb conditioner through my hair…so why can’t that comb be cute as well as practical right?
