Bobbi Brown To Glow Shimmer Brick Palette Trio Review | Holiday 2016

 

Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Bricks have been a long-standing beauty lover favorite. In fact, the brand refers to their much adored highlighters as iconic. Despite this coveted status, in all my years experimenting with makeup, I’d never actually tried one. But what are holiday collections good for if not to get you to try new things? Notwithstanding the sometimes gimmicky, consumerisn driven madness…I really enjoy the options offered by holiday sets, kits and palettes. And of all the releases we’ve been bombarded with this year, the Bobbi Brown To Glow Shimmer Brick Palette made it to the top of my shopping list.

Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks Mini Set | Holiday 2016

 

Liquid lipsticks have been all the rage for some time now and one of the formulas that’s lead the way is Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks. Despite their huge popularity, I’d never actually tried them. Why so late to the party? I’m not sure…especially considering that I am a fan of KVD’s beauty line. Her Lock It setting spray (please come back) is my Holy Grail and I love her complexion products as well. Perhaps my tardiness is due in part to the fact that it’s taken me a while to warm up to liquid lipsticks in general. Whatever the reason, I went all in with the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipsticks Mini Set that was released for the holidays.

Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Palette Review | Holiday 2016

 

Let’s talk holidays! With it being October and all, I feel a little less obnoxious featuring Holiday 2016 beauty releases. When Sephora sent VIB Rouge’s the email about the Holiday First Access event (10th September), I tried to resist the temptation. Besides, I knew I wouldn’t be able to attend anyway. When I discovered that the products were also available online, however, all bets were off. I didn’t go crazy though – just ordered a couple things. One of which is the Laura Mercier Fall in Love Face Illuminator Collection Palette. Well, if you’ve seen Monday’s post (hint: giveaway) then you know I actually got two!

Gucci Luxurious Pigment Rich Lipsticks Review & Swatches

 

September turned out to be month of lipsticks on this Blog. Did you think we were done? Not quite. I’ve got one more for ya. September was also my birthday month and, as you can imagine, I did indulge in a bit of shopping. Though I do have to say it’s been quite tame compared to previous years. Probably has something to do with motherhood. I actually didn’t do anything on my birthday but have been busily planning baby girl’s big day. Love it! Anyway, some of the first lip products I treated myself to (and which I saved for last because they are so good) are the Gucci Luxurious Pigment Rich Lipsticks.
