Jocelyn’s Christmas Must-Have #9!

Actually, I’m kind of cheating. I’m picking two different gift sets for my #9 spot. So sue me. They kind of go together – like peanut butter and jelly! Or maybe primer and eye shadow?? Okay, I’m not funny.

Anyway – I love these two kits – not only because I love the products, but because I love the packaging! I know it’s wrong to judge a book by a cover, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t like good packaging on makeup. C’mon, you agree with me.

Smashbox has released two awesome sets, Studio Pop for Lips, and Studio Pop for Eyes.  Each set comes in a cute little white tin – wrapped in a bold wrapper!

For Lips:

Experience super high shine and playful pops of color as seen at the studios with this set of five glosses in Smashbox’s favorite shades.

Lip Enhancing Gloss:

  • Illume
  • Razzle
  • Spiceberry

    Reflection High Shine Lip Gloss:

  • Star
  • Candy

mark’s No Place to Run Longwear Eyeliner is Awesome!

You know what I love? Finding products that ACTUALLY work – that are affordable. Doesn’t that make you feel good? For years I was a longtime Diorshow (mascara), and then I was introduced to CoverGirl Lash Blast – which has changed me for life. I’ll never go back to paying $30 for mascara again, when I can get it for $8!

This is kind of the same situation! mark has released a GREAT eyeliner for only $9! It’s a great eyeliner, totally worth the $9 you’ll spend!

You won’t be able to hide your love of this liner-it sets in a minute, is waterproof and literally lasts all day. A cap ensures this smudge-resistant pencil won’t even run inside your makeup bag. 0.04 oz. net wt.


A Vision in Velvet – is a Vision in HEAVEN if you ask me!

I can’t think of a more-complete, more-perfect eye shadow set than the one I’m sharing with you right now. This absolutely gorgeous holiday set from bareMinerals comes with 10 Velvet Matte Eyecolors AND 10 Velvet Satin Eyecolors! That’s 20 eyeshadows in ONE SET!!!

Let me take it slowly, so I can be sure you’re paying attention. You get 20 eyeshadows – which if you were to walk into a bareMinerals store would cost you $220 – for the insane price of $79! Are you freaking kidding??  You guys would die, I’m telling you… you would die.

Dress up in lush, plush, sinfully decadent color. This collection of bareMinerals® Eyecolors lavishes lids with the pure sumptuousness of velvet. Indulge in 10 velvet matte shades for a rich suede finish and 10 velvet satin shades for a soft luminous sheen. Luxuriously touchable and beautifully blendable, these hues can be mixed, matched and layered to create endless irresistible looks.

Collection includes 20 petite eyecolors:

(0.28 g / 0.01 Oz. each)

  • Velvet Blueberry Eyecolor (creamy navy)
  • Velvet Violet Eyecolor (plush lilac)
  • Velvet Pistachio Eyecolor (crushed mint)
  • Velvet Vanilla Eyecolor (warm ivory)
  • Velvet Strawberry Eyecolor (soft wine)
  • Velvet Mauve Eyecolor (matte mauve)
  • Velvet Green Eyecolor (matte green)
  • Velvet Charcoal Eyecolor (matte charcoal)
  • Velvet Espresso Eyecolor (matte espresso brown)
  • Velvet Taupe Eyecolor (matte taupe)
  • Satin Sterling Eyecolor (satin silver)
  • Satin Lilac Eyecolor (satin lilac)
  • Satin Nude Eyecolor (satin nude)

  • Satin Rose Eyecolor (satin rose)
  • Satin Sage Eyecolor (satin sage)
  • Satin Gold Eyecolor (satin gold)
  • Satin Caramel Eyecolor (satin caramel)

I’m pretty sure holiday gift sets don’t get better than this one right here. It’s seriously like a foot long, and full of 20 shadows. That special person on your list won’t need to buy eye shadow for like 10 years! (That may be a stretch, but I don’t wear eyeshadow everyday, so it probably would last me 10 years.)

You’re welcome! (Do you love me?)
