The Maybelline Up in Smoke Palette and Maybelline Gilded in Gold Palette are two new, limited edition Holiday 2015 makeup palettes that contain a selection of makeup for eyes, face, and lips!

This is different for Maybelline isn’t it? I don’t think I’ve ever really seen the brand do a full palette before! Funny as Maybelline Gilded in Gold was a Holiday 2013 limited edition collection that included these really great Shimmer Weave Blushes! I thought it funny they recycled the name.

This year it seems drugstores brands are stepping up their brands and release sets and special palettes for the season.

Take a closer look at both of these palettes.

Why I Can’t Use On Fleek or Strobing in a Sentence?

strobing on fleek

Why I can’t I use on fleek or strobing in a sentence without feeling like a jerk? I mean “My makeup is so on point!” sure, I can say that comfortably but “My makeup is on fleek!” I’m cringing so hard right now never mind saying it out loud as I’d likely blush and feel like an idiot if I did.

I’m either getting old or makeup jargon and slang is getting cooler than me, not that I’ve ever been cool, geeky yeah, but I was never a Heather unless you count lunchtime poll at gay clubs with my best friend haha.

But yeah, somehow, someway, makeup brands are creating their own lingo.

Maybelline Lip Gloss Palette for Winter 2015

I receive a small commission if you shop through my link.

Maybelline Lip Gloss Palette

The Maybelline Lipgloss Palette ($11.99) arrives just in time for the Holidays with eight shades that range in color from nudes to reds. So mix, match, or wear these eight shades indivdually to create a custom look.

The palette comes with its own brush for application as well!

I find this a very interesting release for Maybelline. The brand seems to really like larger palettes lately as they have already released several Expert Wear Eyeshadow Palettes that include 12 shades of shadow each so why not venture in the realms of a lip palette too right?

The new Maybelline Lipgloss Palette kinda sorta reminds me of the old NYX Luscious Lip Palettes! How many people remember those?

I’m not really a lip palette kinda girl as I find them messy to work with but they can be fun sometimes especially when you’re in the mood to play mad scientist and do a little mixing and cocktailing.

At the moment Maybelline offers the palette is a single shade selection that covers a fairly good variety of colors including pinks, reds, and nudes but I imagine if the palette sells well they’ll do further color variations.

Whatcha think?

Worth a pick up?

Burt's Bees Mint Cocoa Lip Balm

I figure if I’m going to be dashing through the snow wearing Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab Muddy Puddles Perfume Oil I should have a matching lip balm to go with the fragrance of hot chocolate and fluffy marshmallows yes?

That’s why Burt’s Bees Mint Cocoa Lip Balm is on my Winter hit list! If you recall Burt’s Bees Pumpkin Spice Lip Balm hit the beauty airwaves for Fall 2015 and this year they gift us with yet another delicious limited edition flavor.

Burt’s Bees Mint Cocoa Lip Balm is a steaming, warm mug of your favorite hot cocoa with a hint of crisp, cool mint! Marshmallows are great in cocoa but even better a minty cup of hot cocoa to ring in the upcoming colder, snow-y weather.

Yes, please.

And no calories either!

Burt’s Bees Mint Cocoa Lip Balm is available now at Ulta.com.

In this case, it might be ok to eat your lipstick lip balm!
