Halloween is almost here and it’s time to start planning that picture-perfect costume. These Halloween beauty essentials have everything you need to give you’re look a fun, flirty boost! I was sent some of these great products to try and wanted to share my favorites.

I love the Borghese Nail Lacquers the dual tip brush makes it super easy to apply without making a mess and the colors are top notch. I have Chianti Wine on my toes and love the rich sparkly red color so cute!

Make Her Up introduces Kings & Queens Body Milks & More!

I’ve tried a few Kings & Queens products in the past, and I was really impressed with each one! Recently I was sent 2 of their new Showergel’s – and I’m in love! They come in these big 10 oz. bottles, and each have a great design on the label.  What I love most about these showergels is the scent. It stays with you long after you get out of the shower.  I tried Chinese Princess Jasmine  – and Sultan of Granada Lemon Flower, and they are amazing! I couldn’t tell you which one I like more.  They are awesome!

Get ready like a royal, start the day like a sovereign, make like a monarch. Kings & Queens is a royal new body care range developed around the herbs and spices favored by the aristocracy of a bygone age.

Kings & Queens introduces Body Milks, Showergels, Body Butters, and Shimmering Body Milks, each with a story to tell. From Nefertiti Honey, inspired by the Egyptian Queen who used the Nectar as an indulgent beauty treatment, to Cinnamon, the spice beloved by Queen Isabella of Spain that prompted Columbus’s trip to discover the new world, the creators of Kings & Queens took inspiration from the beloved ingredients of yesteryear.

The line reflects the true decadence of royals past with an imaginative, modern twist. This fun, irreverent range of beauty products is for fashion, style and design conscious urbanites who are always on the lookout for an affordable statement choice.

All Kings & Queens products are mineral oil-and paraben-free and enriched with “The Royal Mix,” a blend of Pomegranate, Blue Egyptian Lotus and Malachite extracts containing Hazelnut, Grape, Sunflower and Avocado Oils. The purple fruit of Pomegranate, with benefits of Polyphenolic compounds and Vitamin C, has a crown-like top, which is why it is displayed on the coat of arms of many Royal Houses. The flower of the Blue Lotus was the most popular ancient Egyptian symbol of glory and eternal life for gods and mortals alike containing bioflavonoids, such as quercetin and rutin and antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits. Malachite was used by Russian Tsars to decorate their palaces to lend extra energy and bring harmony by detoxification the body and healing skin tissue.
