Smashbox’s Waterproof Shadow Liner is the best of both worlds!

Smashbox’s waterproof shadow is a stay-put waterproof eye shadow and long-wearing liner in one. I love products that make life easier. Seriously, shadow and liner in one? YES PLEASE!

This great product gives eyes soft definition wherever, whenever with this travel-friendly, mistake-proof shadow liner. The creamy waterproof formula glides on effortlessly for endless possibilities.

Smudge as a liner or blend as a shadow with included smudger for allover, longwearing color. Light-reflecting pearls give high-drama color and shimmer, while emollients create a silky, creamy texture.

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 Plum Eyecolor (satin plum)

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

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?)

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!)
