Blush, highlight, and conotur... Oh, my! The beauty brains at Mary Kay have been incredibly busy, as they've recently revamped their range of powder products. The Chromafusion range includes a huge range of shades in eyeshadows, and as we're going to jump into momentarily, the aforementioned blush, highlighter, and contour.

For beauty fans, it just wouldn't be the holidays without a new lipstick (or four...) Red is always a classic option, but what is even more fun than a new lipstick shade is a fancy new tube. Avon knows the drill, and has given us just that.

Coffee Crush | Bite Beauty French Press Lip Gloss

Like most everyone, I'm a social media user. I can be found on most of the popular platforms, but I just never got to love Twitter. As a rather wordy person, the character limit never won points with me, and as a result, I rarely use it. Well, that was up until a month of so ago, I decided I needed to get into it a little more and forced myself to get Tweeting. It paid off pretty quickly, I must say, as the amazing people at Bite Beauty saw my Tweet about the Flat White French Press gloss and sent the rest of the collection. Amazing, right?!

In skincare, add the word brightening and I'm immediately interested. It seems, when it comes to beauty, just add tryst and I'm yours. Two releases of the year that were immediate 'I want need that!' feature the alluring word. The most recent is the stunning, limited-edition NARS Hot Tryst Face Palette (insert audible sigh) that is just about everything you could dream of. Like, it's distractingly gorgeous.

This, That & Other Stuff vol. 13

this that & other
: : : press sample / affiliate links : : :

It's been a minute since my last TT&OS post, but my little pile of misfits (aka products that just didn't fit in anywhere else) was calling out for a little love. I know I just called them misfits, but they're actually a really great group and there is even glitter in the mix. Glitter! You know it makes everything better, so let's get to the goods.

Halloween has only just barely passed, so  that clearly can only mean one thing... It's holiday collection season. Actually, it's already in swing, but it will officially ramp up and will soon reach its peak, all before December. I know I've already indulged in a few holiday offerings, have a few more in transit, and am waiting patiently for the upcoming VIB sale to order a few others. It's a good year, okay? Too Faced is sure to be on everyone's list with a heap of cute offerings including the extra adorable Gingerbread Spice Eyeshadow Palette.

I had a plan for these photos, in my head at least. Things did not go to plan. I mean, there are only so many ways to make skincare look pretty in photos, but I can't help feel a little bit discouraged that you won't see the 'plan'. Oh well, it is what it is. At least we do get to chat up a few skincare goodies from Fresh. Ready?

As you may know, I've been loving lip gloss lately. Shiny, glossy, sheer or opaque, maybe a little shimmery... It's all I've wanted to wear. At least it was all I wanted to wear. When I spied the Too Faced Sweet Smell of Christmas Mini Melted Matte set an inner urge for matte emerged yet again. And for good reason, this is a perfect little set.
