Jane Iredale Chocolicks Lip Glosses: Holiday Beauty Gift Guide

I’m adding the Jane Iredale Chocolicks Lip Gloss set to Spoiled Pretty’s Holiday Beauty Gift Guide – although once you buy it, I doubt you’ll be able to resist your selfish urges and actually give it away.

This collection of mini lip glosses offers any chocoholic four decadent options to satisfy her sweet tooth. And the set gets brownie points for the clever packaging.

What’s even better? These glosses are formulated with 100% natural ingredients; sunflower seed oil has antioxidant benefits and jojoba seed oil hydrates!

* Truffle: rich brown gloss tastes of double chocolate
* Chocolate Orange: shimmering brown gloss tastes like dark chocolate and zesty orange
* Strawberry Cream: glossy pink that tastes like fresh strawberries and white chocolate
* Caramel: sheer bronze gloss with buttery sweetness

The glosses’ pigments are subtle and sheer, so they’re sure to compliment any complexion. They’re on the sticky side, so if you have an aversion to tacky glosses (I happen to be an equal opportunity lipgloss lover) – this is something to note.

The Jane Iredale Chocoholicks Lip Gloss set ($44) is available at and

When MAC meets the lore and legend that is Lilly Pulitzer, you get a fabulous and funky fun new chapter: a bit of Mar-a-Lago, some well-to-do winky-wink, and a dash of retro-modern pop culture mayhem in prints and colours that make it hip to be in permanent happy land!

A collaboration that feels like the best tongue-in-chic resort retort, with all the wonderful prints and Key West colour combinations Lilly has done so beautifully since, well, forever!

Lavender Lip Trend

Have you noticed a lotta lavender lips lately? I have. Lady Gaga kicked off the trend in February when she paired a light purple pout with an oversized hair bow. Since then, they’ve appeared sporadically on the Fashion Week runways. But now I can’t help but notice that they’re cropping up everywhere.

New Moon star Christian Serratos (who plays Angela) wore lilac lipstick to the movie’s premiere. And Alicia Keys sports a lavender gloss in her new video, Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart (photo below).

The look is like an oxygen-deprived pale pink mouth. To create a lavender lip to compliment my caramel complexion, I use the duo seen at left: MAC Lipstick in Syrup and MAC Plushglass in Foolishly Fab (which has, foolishly, been discontinued).

To steal the look, I recommend a pale pink or lavender lipstick with a sheer lilac gloss on top. For a look that’s more wearable, just a gloss will do the trick. Try: MAC Cremesheen Glass in Ever So Rich, MAC Lustreglass in Flashmode or Morning Glory, or MAC Dazzleglass in Funtabulous.
