On top of being organic each product is filled with essential oils and all natural ingredients that will leave you clean and smelling amazing. 

One of the standouts for me was the Honey and Macadamia the sweet nutty smell is beyond amazing. A long bath with the bath salts followed by the super moisturizing soap and my skin felt and smelled incedible.  La Falaise is currently offering 25% of their gift sets, just pick your scent and you get to try every product the set even includes a bath tray and travel tote!

For the girl in your life that is expecting nothing will pamper her better than the amazing skincare products from Mama Mio! I am a huge fan of the line, all of their great skincare products deliver as promised.   I just entered my 8th month of my pregnancy and with the help of Mama Mio’s products my skin has never felt better. I have not gotten any new stretch marks and my skin is so soft and I have been lucky enough to skip that tight itchy feel as your tummy grows.  I wish I would have known about Mama Mio during my first pregnancy.

Mama Mio’s Congratulations kit is the perfect way to get her skin conditioned and ready for the rigors of pregnancy. What mom to be doesn’t love a little pampering? On top of working wonders on your skin the products are all natural so there is no worry of harm to your baby and you can use them post delivery to help your skin snap back into shape.  If you are looking for any other skincare items I highly recommend Mama Mio’s Boob Tube, Tummy Rub Butter and  Goodbye to Stretch Marks

These amazing pallets make my #7 pick because they are perfection, as far as I’m concerned. I LOOOVE having a blush quad – how fun is that! And Anastasia’s eye shadow quad is something I wear at least once a week. I love them! And nicest thing about these quads is their adorable case! They come in a gorgeous silver case, with a beautiful design! They would make perfect gifts, they are to die for!

Anastasia has launched some amazing new products, and I’m soooo excited to tell you about them! I absolutely adore these palettes. You know me, you know I love me some palettes! I love this new Blush Quad. It’s hard for me to commit to one blush color – and this way, I get four beautiful colors – and it’s cheaper than buying four single blushes! (PS: Anastasia products are slowly taking over all my other beauty products. They just make amazing products!!)

It is such a great palette, the texture is amazing. It’s so soft – and glowing, my skin looks radiant! I mix and match, depending on what I’m wearing. They are terrific! Trust me!

Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have, Number 8!

This nail polish definitely made my Must-Have Christmas list this year, because I absolutely LOVE it! It’s fun, and new and the girl/woman in your life would love to try it, just as I did! It’s inexpensive, and would make the perfect stocking stuffer. Another cute idea would be to tie a nail polish on the outside of a present with some ribbon! What girl wouldn’t love that!?

I was sent this new nail polish to try a while ago, and to be honest I wasn’t in a hurry to try it. It’s Matte, and to me – that seems really strange in a nail polish!

I was sitting there at my desk yesterday staring at the nail polish, and decided to give it a go. Right off the bat I noticed two things. First of all, it’s AMAZING going on. You don’t need any base coat – or top coat, and one layer of polish is all it takes. It goes on wonderfully. Second thing I noticed is that it dries almost immediately. I looked down, and the wet polish had dried into a beautiful red matte color.

The color I’m wearing is Posh, and it’s in the MatteVelvet 2009 line. There are two other awesome colors in this line – check them out here!

I love this stuff! If you are looking for something new, I highly recommend this! I had several people via twitter (are you not following us yet? Follow us at @makeherup) ask me to send pictures of what my nails looked like. The whole matte look is hard to capture in a picture, but I tried!! I don’t have glorious nails, but you get the idea.

MATTEVELVET nail color by Zoya is not intended to be worn with a base coat, top coat or speed dryer of any kind. Due to the unique matte formulation, color is not as long wearing as traditional nail color. A completely clean, dry nail surface yields the best results for matte nail color wear. For best results make sure to always prepare the nail with Zoya Remove+ (3-in-1 nail polish removed, nail plate cleaner and new color prep.) prior to applying color.
