Julep is one of my all time favorite nail polishes and the #Coveted 2017 12-Piece Mini Nail Set is amazing!

What’s to love?

This is a “Best Of” Set for 2017 and you get 12 3 mL mini bottles. They are about half the size of a regular Julep bottle.

I love everything from the box (designed by artist & illustrator Gretchen Röehrs) to the shades. I am wearing Arelene (Classic with a Twist) – Frosted Peach Shimmer.

I got this set over Black Friday weekend and it was paired up with the #Coveted Best of 2016 Nail Color Collection for $34.99 for both sets.

These would make great gifts too.

Lush Christmas Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly Review

The Lush Christmas Santa’s Belly is a wonderful Christmas treat that smells amazing. It has a star anise infusion and fresh apple and grape juices. You can really smell the apple too which I love.

What’s to love?

First up, Santa’s Belly is a fun bath product. It’s a dark red and super jiggly with gold glitter throughout — the glitter is actually plastic-free golden stars. Mine did not have a gold glitter belt but that’s OK.

Santa’s Belly is a bit slippery but easy to use. It’s got a light lather that really made my skin feel amazing. I am definitely going to get another one before Christmas and hopefully a few on the Lush Boxing Day sale.

Lush Snow Fairy Naked Shower Gel Review

Woah! I now have a new favorite Lush product! The Snow Fairy Naked Shower Gel is simply magical.

What’s to love?

Today I ventured into my Lush store and got to see the “Naked” line up close and it’s really a great idea. The shower gel comes with no packaging except for a bag.

After my video (and an annoying call with my in-laws) I needed a little relaxation and Snow Fairy delivered! The bar works like a soap and has a very soft creamy lather and it smells amazing — like candy. It also does wonders for my dry Winter skin. I really want to try Rose Jam next!

Also check out the Lush Snow Fairy Naked Shower Gel is my video review.

ChapStick DUO Holiday Pack

A few months I tired the ChapStick DUO and i really loved it so I was thrilled to find the NEW Limited Edition ChapStick DUO Holiday Pack at Target that comes in Candy Cane and Vanilla shimmer. These make great stocking stuffers too!

Bath & Body Works Tree-Rex Anti-Bacterial Foaming Mousse for Christmas

I just discovered another super cute Christmas product at Bath & Body Works. The Tree-Rex Anti-Bacterial Foaming Mousse for Christmas is just adorable!

tr

What’s to love?

The Tree-Rex Anti-Bacterial Foaming Mousse has the classic Vanilla Bean Noel scent and is a white foam. It smells amazing with an alcohol scent that dissipates into Vanilla Bean Noel and it feels really nice on my hands.

Being a germaphobe I love carrying this one in my purse and I get lots of nice comments about the dino design! These would make really nice gifts too!

Also be sure to check out my Bath & Body Haul on YouTube where I demo Tree Rex!

New It Girl Palette Review

I am a huge fan of It Cosmetics so it’s no surprise that I love the new It Girl 2017 palette.

What’s to love?

First off the bling factor is 100%, the case alone is worth the price of this palette. It’s really pretty and high quality.

The palette contains 4 mattes and 4 pearl shades although I Lovely and Darling feel more like sheers to me.

The base colors are amazing, I use them in the Superhero palette too and they cover dark skin really well.

I get no creasing and find the colors to be highly pigmented and they have great staying power.

Here’s what you get:

LEFT SIDE:
–  Beautiful: Neutral Base / Highlighting Color
–  Glitz: Pearl Nude
–  Lovely: Matte Nude
–  Stunning: Pearl Bronze
–  Divine: Matte Chocolate Brown

CENTER:
–  Blush: Ombré Rose with Highlighting Pink

RIGHT SIDE:
–  IT Girl: Brightening Base / Highlighting Color
–  Charming: Pearl Champagne
–  Darling: Matte Nude Pink
–  Dazzle: Pearl Rose
–  Brilliant: Matte Wine

Overall I think this is my new favorite palette. I hope they come out with a Version 2 that has some purple shades too.

First Impression video for the New It Girl Palette.
