Mistletoe Blues

Image Gallery: Christmas Trees

Is your kisser mistletoe ready? Or does winter have you all chapped and peely? Here's something to try! My lips are pretty sensitive to this winter weather, we don't like this season very much. I gave Tarte Maracuja Lip Exfoliant a try and it worked like a charm! I swear this stuff is magic. Normally I will do the Vaseline on my lips trick at night for softer lips but in the winter it just isn’t enough. I highly recommend this witch magic.... I mean, lip exfoliant!


Skin-softening scrub that sloughs away dryness and replenishes with pure maracuja oil for lips that are supple, soft and smooth. Whether the weather is hot or cold, this lip pick-me-up gently exfoliates and buffs away dry skin to give lips a fresh start. You'll transform a flaky, lack-luster pout into a healthy hydrated smile using the firmer, brighter, smoother skintuitive properties of pure maracuja oil. Raw sugar granules are suspended in a soothing balmy elixir of antioxidants and vitamin C to act as a natural exfoliator as dead cells that cause lips to chap and crack are softly sloughed away. As the raw sugar exfoliates lips, maracuja oil simultaneously acts as a tall glass of water, promoting hydration, cell recovery and surface rejuvenation for lips that appear noticeably revitalized and fuller. This powerful resurfacing lip scrub exfoliates lips then provides instant hydration - quenching lips with no greasy or filmy feel.

FIRMER: Nutrient-rich essential fatty acids repair & rejuvenate lips
BRIGHTER: Vitamin C helps exfoliate lips for a brighter smile
SMOOTHER: moisture-rich formula replenishes & hydrates lips

Maracuja oil: Rich in essential fatty acids (EFAs) known to replenish, rebuild, and brighten skin; high dose of pure Vitamin C gives the appearance of brighter skin; powerful anti-aging elixir promotes active skin recovery and rejuvenation; maximum hydration quenches dry skin

Dem Browz

Here is my list of favorite little helpers

From left to right:
  1. NYX Auto Eyebrow pencil- Fantastically inexpensive and great for Frugal Fannies
  2. SEPHORA Retractable Brow Pencil - Waterproof and slim! This brow pencil is the less expensive version of Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Wiz, It just doesn't come in as many colors and the brush at the end isn't as fancy. I like how slim the pencil is, it makes it easier to mimic brow hair.
  3. MAC Eyebrows- Current favorite! Very similar to Sephoras Retractable brow pencil. Slim and easy to use.
  4. Makeup Forever Aquabrow- This brow liquid is better for gals that are more confident in their application skills! With this you will need a brush: try MAC's #209 brow brush. (<- Fabulous buy) One thing I love about Aqua brow is, it stays put until you wash it off!
Next two products are extras:
  1. Benefit's Highbrow pencil- This soft brow highlighting pencil is your instant brow lift! Perfect for all skintones, the linen-pink highlight hue adds a lifted look to the entire eye area. It's never been easier to raise a brow…or two! How to apply: Apply pencil under your brow following the arch. Lightly blend. For more arch appeal, put two dots above the arch & blend
  2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow gel- It's a clear gel for all hair colors that sets, defines, and holds brows in place all day. I have tried the dupes but I promise they do hold shapeas well or as long.

Ho-Ho- Holiday Parties!

There are numerous holiday parties starting this weekend: Here is a makeup idea to try!

Try a light shade of eyeshadow over entire lid, dust a taupe or light brown eyeshadow in your crease only, then apply winged black liner, top with a glitter liner. Throw on some lashes & red lips and WA-LAAA you're ready for your close up under the mistletoe!
