Holiday Beauty: Nars

Nars has always been one of the most luxurious lines in my eyes. They have some AWESOME Holiday sets that you must know about! These are all Sephora exclusives!

The Nars Exclusive Lip Gloss Collection is a set that I absolutely have to have. I’m such a fan of Nars’ gloss because it’s never sticky and always gives true color without having to layer over and over. Now, you can try 5 mini glosses for $45 bucks. I haven’t seen them in person yet, but I hear that they are a bit smaller than the regular sized glosses. The colors included are Triple X, Harlow, Striptease, Bloodwork and the infamous Orgasm.

Next up, the Miami Sun Set Foundation is absolutely fitting! The oranges and golds totally give you the walking along the boardwalk in a bikini and heels look. You’ll receive Sundance Eye Shadow Duo, Capucine Lip Laquer and Dovima Nail Polish. I own Capucine, and I adore it! Brown girls look SO fab in orange!

The Dolce Vita Set. Classic. This set includes Dolce Vita Lipgloss, Albatross Blush and Love Joy Blush. Love Joy is a gorgeous, deep rose color that looks fabulous on every cheek. You already know I love Albatross, the softest, most appropriate soft gold shimmer. I won’t be picking this up, because I own 2 of the 3 products. But, just to let you know, Love Joy is the next Nars item on my list!

By the way, are you a Sephora Beauty Insider?? If you are, then you probably received the $15 coupon by e-mail today! You can use it in stores and online on a $35 minimum purchase. If you haven’t joined, do it now!!! You’ll LOVE the perks!

Bath And Body Works Shea Cashmere

This stuff is the truth. Long gone are the days when I used to wear Sun-Ripened Raspberry and Warm Vanilla Sugar. Do you ever smell something, or do something, or hear a song or see a movie that takes you back to the past? Those two take me back to middle school and high school, and I’m NOT trying to re-live that! Shea Cashmere makes me want to grow up, and delve into the life of a luxury and sophistication! I have the bubble bath & foot cream, and while I’m not too much of a bath taker, I’m all about showers! So, I went back to Bath and Body Works to get the body wash, body cream and hand cream.

The lovelies at Bath and Body Works have given us some insight on how to have a luxorious day with Shea Cashmere products!

The Shea Cashmere Collection from True Blue Spa is the quick and inexpensive way to pamper yourself from top to bottom with the richness of Shea Butter and the luxurious softness of Cashmere.

· Start the day by lathering up with the Shea Cashmere Shower Cream( $15)
· Nourish your skin with either the Shea Cashmere Body Cream ($17.50) or the Shea Cashmere Body Lotion ($16.50)
· Pamper your precious feet with the Shea Cashmere Foot Cream ($15)
· Keep your hands moisturized and soft with the Shea Cashmere Hand Cream ($14.50)
· End your day with a relaxing bath using the Shea Cashmere Bubble Bath ($18)

A day of pampering wouldn’t be complete without the oh-so-soft knit Cashmere Ballerina Slippers ($29) and the decadent Cashmere Robe ($49.50) to wrap yourself in and unwind! The entire Cashmere Collection is available in Bath & Body Works stores as well as bathandbodyworks.com. I wanted to jump into these at the store! I’ve got to get these for my mommy! She’d adore them!!!

By the way, I cannot wait to try Vanilla Noir, the new fragrance debuting December 1st! I’m a freak for Vanilla Scented Products!!!!

MAC Metal Urge Glitters

I absolutely love MAC Reflects Glitters, part of the brand new Metal Urge collection. MAC just cranks them out, huh? I don’t even wear glitter, but gosh, they are SO pretty!!! These were all applied (without a base) to my bare hand. These are so fine that they are literally sparkly dust. When you open the lid, the glitter begins to fly away! Here’s my favorite way to apply it.

-Pat a sponge or cotton swab into the glitter container, then spray it once with Fix+, or another makeup spray to make the glitter easier to manage. When it’s wet, it won’t fly away, and it will stick to the skin much better! Also, using this method, you wont have a ton of random glitter lodged in between your makeup brushes!
