Happy Holiday!

Hi all!

Before I begin with my post today I would like to share my condolences to all the families that were affected by the horrible shooting in CT and everyone else in the world who are suffering from war, sickness, and death.

I've gathered some of my favourite products here and there for this post. I will do another one featuring only drugstore favourites!

Here are some favourites that I've gathered from this year. Most are fairly new as I purchased most of the products from their Xmas collection and Sephora sales.

Tarte Baby It's Bold Outside Collection

I might've mentioned this before, but I still don't think that people are giving this set enough love! It has everything you need to create a beautiful look for all the holiday parties that you'll be attending. 24 lovely eyeshadows, 8 lip glosses, a setting powder, mascara, and blush.. all these wonderful things to choose from. This set also comes with a blush brush which I'm currently using it separately. It's actually very soft too!

If you're a fan of minty lip glosses, you'll love these!

Laura Mercier Artist's Palette for Eyes

I got this very recently when I received the $20 off $50 voucher from Sephora. Initially I wasn't going to get it because I am very sure I already have similar colours. LUCKILY, I caved and got it. The eyeshadows are SOOO buttery and SOOO easy to blend. I've had many high end eyeshadows and I've not had any that could blend out so quickly and easily.

This has made my life easier in the morning when I'm getting ready for work!

Givenchy Healthy Glow Powder in 3 Ambre

Lovely product that perks up the dull skin from dry winter air. Need I say more? 

Too Faced Chocolate Soleil Matt Bronzing Powder

Smells exactly like chocolate and applies evenly for contouring or bronzing! I can't stop sniffing it!!

Stila Convertible Colour in Peony

These 2 products are actually taken out from a Sephora Favourites set that's why they are not full size. Nonetheless, they are still the same great product that you'll get no matter the size!

This is my first ever Stile convertible and I am enjoying it a lot! Though I'm using this more on my lips cause it gives the perfect nude without washing me out.

Boxum Time to Shine Lip Gloss Set

Top: High Beam
Bottom: Buxom Glosses

Benefit High Beam

The Buxom lip glosses kept running out of stock in Sephora! I'm glad that I got my hands on some just in time. If you don't mind waiting, you can always order online :) They are much more pigmented than the ones that came in the Tarte set, but for a higher price of course. I love them and they also claim to enhance the size of your lips. Not sure about that end, but I really love how it feels on the lips!

Benefit High Beam, a favourite of a lot of beauty enthusiast out there. Gives your face a glow without making it look like a disco ball.

Before I leave, here are some LOTD when I went out for a family holiday party! 

Thank you Suzanne for the wonderful food! :)

Have a wonderful holiday and remember to tell your loved ones that you love them!!
