Accidentally leave some friend/cousin/co-worker off of your list, and now you’ve got to promptly stuff some stockings? Tarte’s We Wish You Health Skinvigorating Gift Set is a sure bet. The kit contains:
Mini Clean Slate Face Primer: the silicone-based formula is packed with avocado oil to moisturize and echinacea, rosemary & hibiscus oils to soothe. Just a pea-sized amount of our new clean slate foundation primer smoothed onto clean skin is enough to provide the fresh start you deserve. Note: because of the silicone, I wouldn’t recommend those with oily skin.
Mini Lock & Roll Creaseless Eyeshadow Duo (shade – slate): this double-ended wand has a Vitamin E enriched cream on one end, and a finely milled crushed mica powder shadow on the other end. Apply in to simple steps: brush a sheer wash of the cream shadow on lids and wait about 10 seconds for it to dry. Then roll the matching loose shadow directly on top; the binding agents in the cream shadow will lock with the powder, creating a crease-free, budge-proof finish.
Mini Inside Out Vitamin-Infused Lipgloss powered by BORBA (new shade – serenity): the ultimate in double-duty beauty, this pomegranate-scented, moisturizing lip gloss works to soothe and hydrate lips, while Borba’s nutraceutical blend delivers powerful ingredients.
Mini Lights, Camera, Lashes! Mascara: whatever your lashes lack, this feather-light, 4-in-1 mascara finds a way to compensate. Rice bran and candelilla wax extend the length of lashes; synthetic film formers lock in curl; proVitamin B5 thickens lashes; and organic compounds coat and treat lashes to protect against breakage. This product, by itself, is reason enough to purchase the gift set – it gives you the look of perfect lashes, but without screaming “I‘m wearing mascara.”
The We Wish You Health Skinvigorating Gift Set is only $30 (a $50 value) and available at tartecosmetics.com and Sephora.
For Holiday 2007, OPI takes you to the place where glamorous begins and fabulous never ends – Hollywood! With twelve stunning Nail Lacquers (Glamour Reds and Dazzling Darks & Neutrals), Holiday in Hollywood makes you the star this season!
From the photo, above, you can see that my lovely nails are ready for the red carpet. What are they wearing, you ask? Hollywood Blonde, a pale gold shimmer.

Boxing Day is a British holiday celebrated on December 26th. While most people rush out for post-holiday shopping, those who celebrate Boxing Day give gifts or money to the needy, people they have employed and anyone else they missed on their gift list. It’s also a great time for families and friends to gather and enjoy each other’s company at a more leisurely pace.
In honor of Boxing Day, Jaqua is giving you 40% off everything at Jaqua.com – for 40 hours. I suggest you take advantage of the discount by stocking up on their Buttercream Frosting products.
Enter promo code BOXING12D at checkout. Expires: 12/28/2007 at 12:00 Noon (Pacific Standard Time).
Following in the footsteps of Vera Wang, Monique Lhuillier is on her way to building a luxury lifestyle brand – which will include handbags, home furnishings, fine china, and a fragrance. What will Monique smell like? Stay tuned. The perfume will hit stores in Spring 2008.
Looking to upgrade from that Ikea pencil cup you use to store your makeup brushes? Well, look no farther than Paul & Joe’s Brush Holder.
With its vintage, yet modern look and chrysanthemum design, you’ll want to display it on your vanity – rather than hide in the recesses of your bathroom cabinet. This is a beauty accessory necessity for the stylish, not the stylus.
Also worth checking out are the chic, desktop wallpapers available on the website – inspired by prints used in the Paul & Joe 2007 Fall/Winter line.
And, for the hell of it, here’s a little Beyonce (cuz we don’t see her nearly enough)…
