This is a nice brow set from Paula Dorf cosmetics. While I've heard of the brand before, this is my first time trying it! I chose the color neutral because the brunette seemed like it would be too dark. Unless you have very dark, almost black hair, I would go with neutral! There's also blonde and red, so 4 color choices all together. The 2 + 1 powder comes with a light and dark shade, and a wax. They also sent a really nice brow brush!

This is a neat little set that was sent to me by Daring Beaute. I have tried several things for cellulite in the past, and haven't really seen any difference after using the products. I wanted to give this one a long enough chance to work before doing my full review, and I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised! You get 4 things - a pair of leggings to wear as a wrap while the product is working, the Cellu Burner cream, a body brush, and a body massager.

This palette has had so much drama surrounding its release. It was one of those things that everyone got SUPER excited for when it was first announced - double the size of the regular Lorac palettes, only 4 repeat shades, and only $59 when the normal ones are $42. I have a split opinion on the "dramatic release" that I'll just get out of the way real fast here before going on to the review ...

The shade Royal from Ardency Inn finally went back in stock on the Sephora site, so I had to scoop it up. This is one that I'd heard a ton of awesome things about, and just had to have it. It's a frosty deep violet shade that has a hint of a bluish flash to it in the light. Have a look!

The latest edition to the Sugarpill Chromalust collection is this limited edition shade called Lucid. I've been collecting all the limited edition ones, so it was a no-brainer to get this one! It's a beautiful mint green with tons of multi-dimensional glitters.

I have recently discovered the awesome that is Ardency Inn. I'd heard some good things about their shadows and although I can't seem to find them in any Sephora stores yet, they did have them online (though they keep selling out!) I picked up the color Punch, which is pretty unique to anything else in my collection. It's a matte bright coral pink. Have a look!

2014, holiday, Kat Von D, KVD, limited edition, lipstick, makeup, review, Sephora, set, swatch, swatches
The Kat Von D Lipstick set for this year is called the Studded Kiss Lipstick Set, and I ended up getting this in the store after I said I wasn't going to get it! I had ordered the palette online, but I skipped this because I was disappointed in the Coven lipstick that I bought, plus I had also swatched all the other new shades and they were all dry and patchy. For some reason, I swatched some of the minis in the display for this set, and they feel totally different than the full size lipsticks! I know, it's really odd, but maybe they're fixing the formula? At any rate, let me show you all the shades in this one ...

2014, eyeshadow, holiday, Kat Von D, KVD, limited edition, makeup, palette, review, Sephora, swatch, swatches
As usual, the Kat Von D holiday palette is a beauty! This is probably the thing I get the most requests for every holiday season to review, so I had to snatch it up as soon as it came onto the Sephora site. Let's take a look!

I think the Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash is one of my favorite things that's been released so far for the "holiday" collections! Not only do you get to try 6 of their amazing lipsticks, but it also comes with a full size O-Zone 24/7 Glide-On Lip Pencil! For $39 I think that's a pretty good deal - the lipsticks are a generous size for being "mini," and they're useful to help you figure out which colors you're going to use the most/have to get full sizes of!

I wanted to talk about the answer to "crazy" colored hair peoples' prayers: Overtone. They make a line of color depositing conditioners and treatments that work to restore your color and prevent it from fading. They have Pink, Orange, Blue, Red, Purple and Teal, and for each of those colors you can get them in either pastel, vibrant, or extreme. I went with Extreme Pink and got the set, which includes a travel size and full size of the daily conditioner, and a Go Deep Weekly Treatment. Disclaimer: they did send me a 50% off code to review it, but I did buy these with my own money. Now for my thoughts!
