Fresh Sugar Fix Duo

Fresh Sugar Fix Duo

One of my favorite things about the holidays are all of the gift sets brands come out with. While doing some holiday shopping I purchased this set for myself, so glad I did! 
Its perfect for these cold, dry months. It comes with deluxe sizes of their Sugar Lip Polish & Sugar Lip Fix. By far the greatest deluxe size samples I've seen, especially the Lip Fix. Fix is actually a treatment.. yes, it looks like your average lip balm but do not let its appearance fool you!
I've been using the polish twice a week & the fix every morning and night. WOW! My lips look so healthy! I've noticed such an improvement in the texture and hydration. Lipsticks are wearing better on me. I'm dying to try Sugar Fix in Plum (deep plum) & Passion (red) I have a feeling these products may become holy grail for me! 

It's a Limited Edition set so snag yours now!
$22.50, Sephora or Sephora.com

Sephora Professional Heated Eyelash Curler

Sephora Collection Heated Eyelash Curler

pin straight, that about sums up my eyelashes.
If you envy those who have perfectly curled lashes then this tool should become a staple in your makeup bag! It takes lashes like ours & transforms them into long & curled eye whiskers!!
Its like a curling iron for your eyelashes! Its so quick & convient, its battery operated so you can take it anywhere. I came across this tool 3 years ago at my local Sephora & its become a holy grail tool for me! I
 like to curl my eyelashes a little first with a conventional eyelash curler & then use the heated one to soften the harsh lines from the curler and evenly curl all the lashes. 
You place the heated comb on your mascara free lashes (avoid waterline) and hold for 15-20 seconds then release. For best results apply mascara within 30 seconds of releasing the tool from your eye. 
On the Sephora website it says you should apply mascara first but I ran into nothing but problems doing that...mascara gets on the comb & it clogs, trying to clean the mascara off of the wand was a pain. I got so frustrated doing that, that I actually took it back to Sephora & exchanged it for a new one. 
It is a little tricky to use at first but once you find your own curling rhythym you will love it!! 
Happy Curling!!!

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butter

Revlon Colorburst Lip Butters
Let's imagine for a moment that it took 3 to concieve....
If a Lip Balm, Lip Gloss & Lip Stick got together and made a baby this product would be the outcome. 
Revlon Lip Butters have taken the beauty world by storm! A permanent part of Revlon's Spring 2012 Collection, they began their debut in late October/early November. 
It was a shy debut for them! I could not find them at any store, they were flying off the shelves! I finally snagged 6 of them mid-November! 
I LOVE them! Moisturizing, greatly pigmented & give off a nice sheen! However if you're looking for long lasting, these may not float your lip boat.
I love the packaging, the top of the tube is clear so you can see the exact color! It's not the typical lip butter/balm casing they have a very chic lipstick look to them. 
Caution: Use a light hand when applying these, if you press too hard & then twist so the product slides back down into its tube, some excess seems to spill off the side.
Available in 20 fun & yummy named shades! I currently own Berry Smoothie, Peach Parfait, Candy Apple, Lollipop, Creme Brulee & Pink Truffle. 

You can snag your own at Target, ULTA & CVS. Price Range $6-8.

Revlon has also launched Colorstay 16 Hour Eyeshadow Quads & PhotoReady Mousse that I'm hoping to purchase and review soon!
