Christmas Gift Haul!

This is just a quick post on my gifts I got for Christmas. I didn't expect to get this much, maybe it's not a lot to you, but I sure was grateful for all that I got! :)


Hello Kitty popcorn tin and a crock pot. (From mom and dad)

Hello Kitty mouse pad. (From the brother)

Holiday throw blanket with toss pillow. (From mom and dad)

Gloves and scarf from the hubby, socks, pink hoodie, and pj's from my mom and dad.

Label Maker, Necklace, and Michael Jackson Dance game! (From the hubby)

New Wii Controler (From the hubby)

Chocolate! (From the hubby)

Britney Spears original Curious Perfume. I had this years ago and love the way it smells, so I was really happy to get it again. (From the hubby)

Two Sephora Gift Cards. (One from my mom and dad, and one from my brother)



Last but not least, I got a Kindle! My Dad and Mom got me the Kindle and my brother got me the nice pink cover to keep it protected. I LOVE my Kindle! It's my new obsession! I take it with me everywhere. When the Kindle first came out, I didn't get it, I thought what's the point. I've always loved to read and like to have a book physically in my hand, but now that I have my Kindle, it's just so easy and convenient! If your sitting somewhere waiting, it's so easy to just pull it out and catch up on some reading and pass the time. You can even play Scrabble on it! I love it!! :)

I wasn't the only one who got a lot of gifts, my son got an insane amount of gifts from all of us. He's an only child and only grandchild though, so I guess we go a little crazy for him. :)

Well I'd like to thank my husband, mom, dad, and brother for all the wonderful gifts! I am so grateful and love everything! :)

What did you all get for Christmas? Any New Kindle owners out there? Have any favorite books you would like to share? Let me know some of your favorites in the comments.

Lorac Tie Dye For Lip Gloss Collection Review and Swatches

For quite some time I have been telling myself NO MORE LIP GLOSS! I have a drawer full of lip gloss that is neglected. I went through it some time ago and thought I should try to at least get through a few tubes before I bought anymore, BUT being the beauty blogger...(beauty hoarder), that I am I couldn't resist this set from Lorac! :)


They are just so pretty to look at! :D

I came across these while browsing around in Ulta. I swatched the testers and wow was I surprised at how nicely pigmented they are.

I love my lip gloss to have pigmentation. I don't care for sheer lip glosses, so I new I had to make an acception for these! :D

This is also a great deal, you get five Full Size lip glosses for $25.


The set contains five glosses that each have swirls of different colors in the tube to create a beautiful shade. There's a red, plum, rosey pink, peachy nude, and a bright pink.






All of the colors have a subtle shimmer in them.

They are not sticky and feel moisturizing on the lips.

The packaging is nice. The applicator is a brush tip applicator, but the only minor issue I have with these is the brush tip feels very small, smaller than an average brush tip applicator. If you have small lips then it probably wouldn't be an issue for you, but I have full lips so it seems like it takes a bit longer to apply it.

I'm really happy I picked up this set. The colors are beautiful and the price is great!

This would make a really great Christmas gift or stocking stuffer. You can also tie each one to a gift with some ribbon and make it look really pretty.

The Tie Dye For Lip Gloss Collection can be found at Ulta, Sephora, or http://loraccosmetics.com/ .

What do you think of this set? Have you tried it? Giving it as a gift? Let me know in the comments.

Senna Cosmetics Virtual Vintage Collection! And FOTD! :)

Where do I even get started on this collection! It is by far my favorite Winter/Holiday collection!

I received this collection about a month ago and have been loving it!




Buff & Brighten Mineral Finishing & Highlighting Powder Duo
There is a loose mineral powder in the bottom and a pressed shimmery white powder on the top. This has been a great setting powder. It gives your skin a beautiful soft air brushed finish. The white pressed powder I LOVE! I have been using it as a shadow on my lid, or to highlight my brow bone. I especially love using it on the inner corners of my eyes! I love it!


Face Color Blush in Hue
This is another new favorite of mine. This blush is the most perfect natural flush of color. It's a very neutral color, because I have been wearing it with everything and I haven't found anything I couldn't wear it with. It's really soft and natural.

Swatch of the pressed white shimmer powder above and the blush below.


Eye Colors in Blend and Fixation
OK if you haven't tried Senna Eye Shadows you must! They are so pigmented! These colors from the Fall Collection are absolutely stunning! Blend is a perfect neutral. I love it on the lid and crease. Fixation is one of the most beautiful shadows I have ever seen! It's a gorgeous olive green with golden shimmer. I love it! These shadows also blend beautifully.


Black Velvet Eye Lining Pencil
I'm going to sound repetitive telling you this is a new favorite of mine, but it's true. I love this pencil! I have been using it for my waterline everyday, and I love it! It's really dark black, and glides on easily, with no tugging. I don't find that it fades on me. It doesn't irritate my eyes, which is great. I had been using a different liner on my waterline for quite some time and it really irritated them, so I'm happy I don't have that problem with this one. This eye pencil also contains vitamin A and E.

Swatch ~ Blend eyeshadow, Fixation eyeshadow, and Black Velvet Eye Pencil. Sorry Blend eye color is the same color as my hand! :)


Lip Liner in Dusty Rose
This is a really great neutral lip pencil and can be worn with many different lip colors.


Lipsticks in Valentina and Garnet
Aren't these lipsticks stunning!?! I am in love with these lipsticks! When I received them, it just made me think of the holidays! These colors are not only beautiful for fall/winter, but all year long. They are creamy and glide on the lips. I didn't have any problems with fading when I wore them, but I did wear them with the  Dusty Rose lip liner.


Lush Lip Lacquer
This is a beautiful shimmery, berry colored lip gloss that can be layered over any lipstick. It looks really great over these two. It's a very sheer color, with intense shimmer! It is a bit sticky, but I've said this before on my blog, I really don't mind sticky lip glosses, it doesn't bother me, but if that's a problem for you, then pass this  one up. I had trouble capturing the true sparkle in this Lip Lacquer, so imagine it 5x more sparkly! :)

Garnet Lipstick, Valentina Lipstick, Dusty Rose Lip Pencil, and to the right, Lush Lip Lacquer.



And here is my look using the whole collection! Please excuse the hairs/fly-aways in my face! :D

Overall, I think the Virtual Vintage collection is amazing! This collection was put together so well, everything compliments each other perfectly, so bravo Eugenia, and Senna Cosmetics! I found Senna Cosmetics at IMATS last year, and it has instantly become one of my favorite lines out there!

I definitely recommend this collection, so check it out at http://www.sennacosmetics.com/ .

Also right now every order over $50 will receive a free Sugar Lip Scrub and a Glisten Face Powder!

Nails Of The Day ~ Essie Sew Psyched



I picked up this color a couple weeks ago from Ulta. It was the last one they had left, so I was happy to get it.

Noelle,  from http://beautygirl24.blogspot.com/ posted this color about a month ago and I new I had to have it! We have similar tastes in a lot of things and I trust her opinion, so I figured I would like the color, and I did. BTW, I love her! She is the sweetest girl, you should all check out her blog and follow.

It's such a unique color. I don't have anything remotely close to it in my collection. It's a greyed sage green. I am wearing two coats. It went on perfectly with no streaks. It's so beautiful. I love it!

Sew Psyched is from their Fall Collection. You can find it at your local Ulta or http://www.essieshop.com/ for $8.

What do you think about Sew Psyched and the Essie Fall Collection?

Disclaimer ~ I purchased this myself. I am not being payed for this post and this is my own opinion.
