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:

LIMITED EDITION: Lip Balm Trio from SheaMoisture!

It’s lip balm season!! (Okay, that and hand cream season, if you ask me.) I’m alllllllllllways on the prowl for lip balms. I think I have one in every room of my house (including my car). I love me some lip balm, who doesn’t right?

SheaMoisture has released a new Limited Edition Lip Balm Trio – and included are three delicious balms! How about Raw Shea Butter Argan, Coconut & Hibiscus or Olive & Green tea? YES PLEASE! This balm goes on a bit thick, but I like it. It makes your lips feel really protected – and for hours.

SheaMoisture’s ultra-moisturizing lip care trio hydrates, heals and protects dry, fragile lips. Your lips instantly feel soft, smooth and supple as you indulge in the luxury of rich organic Shea Butter and natural botanicals!

Nourish & Protect: Coconut Oil

A daily requirement for well-hydrated skin. Nourishes and helps firm skin with Vitamins E, K and fatty acids. Moisturized lips feel supple and kissably soft!

Heal & Renew: Olive Oil

Olive oil, rich in antioxidant Vitamin E and fatty acids, helps heal and renew dry, damaged lips. Restores lip’s natural moisture balance and smoothness.

This set would be perfect for Christmas! Pick yours up at Target, Walgreens or CVS. MSRP $9.99

How do we feel about gold lipstick? IMO, perfect for parties!!

There aren’t many times you can get away with gold lipstick, but Christmas has GOT to be the perfect time of year for this! Heck, any party would be great. I was sent a sample of IMAN’s beautiful Luxury Moisturizing Lipstick in Sheer Gold, and it is gorg!

I couldn’t find a picture of the gold lipstick, but you’re going to have to take my word for it! It’s so cute! I got a picture!! Check out how cute this lipstick is (below)

Anyhoo, this creamy, semi-matte lip color provides a long-lasting smooth finish for a 24-karat gilded pout sure to turn heads.

Love it (and it’s only $10! Score!)


NEW Flavored Lip Balms from Sun Bum!

Let’s face it, lip balms and stockings go together like peanut butter and jelly! Okay, well if you’re in MY family, they do! Since I was a wee lad (what’s female for lad?) my mom has been sticking flavored lip balms in my stockings. For – I won’t tell you how many years. Well, I’ve been continuing the tradition with my own kids. I have two boys, ages 12 and 10, and while I’m not sure they appreciate it as much as I did – I still get a kick out of it. I might be persuaded to share some lip balms with the ladies in my life this year instead of my growing boys. What, boys don’t want smooth lips?

Here are two new lip balms from Sun Bum! The deliciously flavored lip balms are sure to please anyone in your life – except maybe those tween boys of yours.

The latest from Sun Bum are the NEW! Flavored Lip Balms with SPF 30+ sunscreen with added Aloe and Vitamin E that will protect and moisturize your kisser all day long. Available in: Key Lime, Coconut, Pink Guava, Mango, Pomegranate and its existing flavor, Banana. $3.99.

Sun Bum believes quality, safety, and performance are the keys to getting more people to use sunscreen. Each ingredient and attribute is specifically chosen to provide friends with the most advanced broad spectrum protection available, while ensuring a smooth and invisible feel, just the way they like it.

Get them for yourself!
