This month’s BEAUTY CALL is a good one. A Banger. And to keep it in the theme of the holidays, these items also double over as superb gift ideas for your sisters, friends, cousins, girlfriends, ponies. Or ef that,
Number one item of the month goes to:
(photo care of my instagram – follow me:)
Sephora Collection Makeup Studio Blockbuster: $49.50
What you need to know:
– 96 eye shadow shades
– 84 shiny lip glosses
– 6 cream eyeliners
– 2 eyeliner pencils
– 3 blushes
– 1 bronzer
– 1 mascara
– 4 applicators
Every November Sephora puts out a new one of these, and yet, somehow, it doesn’t have a decent name yet. They can’t just go with Blockbuster, or anything “box” really because they carry the brand “smash box”. They should go with a one or two-word name. Something simple and memorable like “the cube” of the “Sephora Special” (there are no bad ideas in brain storming).
There are more colors than you will know what to do with. You go ahead and just toss the mascara – clump city. Also, if you don’t already own some basic brushes I’d pick up a couple so you can really enjoy this – the applicators provided are disposable.
Who wouldn’t love this Sephora Hello Kitty Brush Set? ($49) A monster, that’s who.
I want to take every color and put it on my face at one time
Item Number Dos:
Lollia fragrances, bath & body products, and candles
EVERY scent is amazing. And the packaging is the most beautiful shit I’ve ever seen.
My favorite (I don’t know, it’s pretty hard to pick a favorite though..) is their new scent, Calm
If you’re like me, and can’t pick just one you can buy a set of 6 tiny GORGEOUS glass bottles of fragrance.
$54 on the Lollia site. I checked Amazon and Ebay for you already – that is the best price. These bottles are so decorative they will look good on your vanity even when they’re empty.
I can’t even imagine how perfect these bubble baths are – $34 each. Oh look, fuggin’ OPRAH loves it.
I’ll take one of everything.
Osis Dust it hair magnifying powder. $10 on Amazon
You want cray cray volume in your hair?
Sprinkle some of this in the crown of your hair and tease a little. You’ll look like a bombshell. Because it’s a powder, you can almost use it as a dry shampoo. This is great for 3-day hair that has a little bit of a grease sheen going on.
Does your skin get shitty dry this time of year too? Our water kind of adds to this lovely seasonal issue: I step out of the shower and feel like my face is expanding through the skin or something. I would imagine it’s what getting work done to your face feels like – must. not. show. no. emotion.
It might be a good idea to switch to some gentler skin-care products for the winter
Clarins toner is gentle, and soothing. Hence toner/lotion. Toning Lotion with Camomile: $20 ignore the part where is says “texture: lotion” whoever thinks lotion is a liquid is special.
Bliss Clog Dissolving Cleansing Milk: $28 (you can apparently get 20% off right now, coupon code TAKE20)
If you’re super dried out Queen Helene makes a super cheap ($5), super effective Olive Oil Mask that you can pick up at any Harmon, Rite Aid, CVS, etc.
