 Holiday Gift Guide Beauty

 1. Buxom Lip Set / $59 – The Full-On Lip Polish & Lip Cream Set features mini sizes of lip polishes and lip creams that let you experiment with tingling, lip-plumping looks in nudes, pinks, reds, and plums.

2. Sephora Contour Brush Set / $48 – This high quality set includes a stippling brush, a flat top powder brush for buffing and setting, and angled blush brush. Also includes PRO Team make-up tutorial. The set is encased in a fashionable slim-line pouch.

3. Illuminate Skin Rejuvenating Eye Mask / $35 -This invigorating sleep mask covers your delicate eyes during sleeping hours with advanced care to minimize the appearance of wrinkles. Beyond blocking all visual stimuli to quiet your mind and senses, this silky, soft, smart textile is carefully embedded with Cupron’s copper oxide technology, derived from a well-known essential mineral. This technology is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of wrinkles for smoother, younger-looking skin in as little as four weeks—with a continuous effect over time.

4. GrandeBrow-Tastic Beauty Box / $100 – If you follow my instagram (@pearls_and_paris) you know that I’m a sucker for amazing brows. I feel like they are truly the first thing that people notice on your face. We all can’t have naturally perfect brows so that is why I love the GrandeBrow-Tastic Beauty Box. It includes 1 GrandeBROW Serum, 1 GrandeBROW-FILL and 1 Stainless Steal Tweezer. This box includes all the tools you need to build beautiful arches, fill in sparse areas and restore your brows to a gorgeous shape!

5. GO SMiLE on the go / $119 – The gift of a shiny white smile! For two minutes each morning and evening, brush as you normally would using the Teeth Whitening Gel and your favorite toothpaste together to clean and whiten at the same time. Brush in small, circular motions. The brush will pulse every 30 seconds, letting you know it’s time to change quadrants. It will then beep and turn off automatically after two minutes.

6. Urban Decay Vice4 Palette / $60 -This limited-edition palette even includes 20 gorgeous shades, a huge mirror and a double-ended brush. Vice4 features a stunning array of colors and a wide range of finishes, from buttery-smooth mattes and shimmering metallics to shades laced with micro-glitter.

7. Make Up For Ever 15 Artist Shadow Palette / $59 -This 15 shade palette features a breakthrough Artist Shadow formula that lets you create endless eye looks with infinite combinations. The advanced gel-powder formula blended with ultrafine pigments provides vivid color payoff and superior blendablilty. An artist’s favorite, Artist Shadow leaves a smooth, even finish that gives lids super-saturated, lasting color. Arranged into five easy-to-apply color trios, this extensive collection ranges from soft, subtle neutrals to daring bolds and brights.

8. Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Palette / $46 – This is my holy grail as far as contouring goes. This palette features three shades for contouring and three shades for highlighting, designed to shape and define facial features to create a look of authentic dimensionality. I feel as this kit is fail proof and is super easy to use.

9. Lancome Auda[City] in Paris Eyeshadow Palette / $68 – When I think of the brand Lancôme, I instantly think ‘classic’ and that is exactly what this palette is. This is their first multi pan eyeshadow palette featuring 16 shades in 4 finishes. Pick a chic look for the day, an audacious look for the night, or anything that falls in between.

#SaveTheUndies

save

As women, we have so much going on, on a daily basis, that there are certain things we shouldn’t have to stress over. For instance – that time of the month. UGH. The dreaded period.

We all have our favorite pair of undies. Maybe it’s the ones that are ultra comfy or maybe it’s the one where you feel most sexy in. Either way, no one wants to have to toss their favorite pair because their feminine hygiene product isn’t doing its job. This is why we need to come together and help Save the Undies with the new U by Kotex pad featuring 3D Capture Core. It’s a pad that’s different from any other out there because it’s got a one-of-a-kind center that locks away liquid to help stop leaks – which helps Save the Undies.

U By Kotex pads comes in 3 varieties:

1

U by KotexCleanWear Pads – Regular Absorbency

2

U by KotexCleanWearPads – Heavy Flow Absorbency

3

U by KotexAllNighterOvernight Pads – Overnight Absorbency

December Ipsy Glam Bag

This is my 3rd Ipsy Glam Bag since signing up and they seem to get better every month. Out of all my monthly $10 Beauty Box subscriptions – this is my favorite one by far! A majority of the products are full size and they are always accompanied by the cutest little make up bag.

Holiday Ipsy Glam Bag

-Be A Bombshell Lipgloss in Hot Mess

-Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Pencil in Zero

-NYX’s Ultra Pearl Mania Eye Shadow in Shimmering Dark Grey

 I am now familiar with the brand Be a Bombshell because of Ipsy. They make some of the best pigmented lipglosses I have come across. They consider “Hot Mess” to be a true red and semi-sheer. You can layer this gloss for a more deep red that gives your lips a very glossy look that is sure to make a statement. It is not sticky and the sponge applicator is soft and works very well. Visit the Be a Bombshell website and receive 30% off all purchases until the end of the month with the code: IPSY30

 A highlighter on paper – what a brilliant idea! Basically you just rip a sheet out and lightly press and swipe on your desired area for a gorgeous glow. This makes your complexion glow without the messy residue that other highlighters tend to leave. Tip: Don’t forget to swipe this across your collar-bone. Visit the Mai Couture Website through 1/15/13 for 20% off all purchases with the Code: IPSY1212

I have yet to try the Mirabella primer but did swatch it on my skin. It was very silky and is also weightless and oil-free which is always great.  This product can be used for the face and eyes and because of its size is great for traveling. Visit the Mirabella website to receive 30% off any purchase until 1/31/13 with the code: ipsy

NYX is a great brand at an affordable price which most of us can always appreciate. I loved the color my Glam Bag came with and I can’t wait for a night out to test it out. Want to try it out? Visit the NYX website and enter code: IPSYDUST for 30% off all Loose Pearl Shadows.

Already obsessed with Urban Decay, receiving the 24/7 Glide-On pencil was such a treat! I’ve been wanting to test it out for a while and I am beyond happy with the results. I would not recommend this if you want to do a smokey eye because it does not budge. This pencil  is so creamy and really does “Glide-On”. It also comes in 7 other colors which I recommend trying if you like to add a pop of color to your eyes with liner.

Also included was a $20 credit for Just Fab!
