MAC Keepsakes Natural Face Kit
MAC Keepsakes Plum Eyes
Yeppers the holiday brings out some of the prettiest and most unnecessary sets and palettes. But you gotta just get a couple, I mean it's a thing! Ha :) The MAC Keepsake Natural Face Kit just screamed at me when I saw it and it was the last one at my Dillards MAC counter so I HAD to get it, right? It has 3 eyesahdows, 2 lip colors, 1 iridescent powder and 1 cream color base. The packaging is adorable with a cameo face (watch the little "pearl" parts around the case though, they are flimsy and may come off easily IMO). The colors are beautiful and wearable. The lippie colors are the only really pigmented products in the kit.
The Plum Eyes kit is easily going to be the most used of the 2 palettes. With my hazel eyes these colors are complimentary and most of these colors have some nice pigmentation with a couple being powdery and having fallout. Last year was the first time I even purchased and used MAC products and I am not disappointed!
These are pretty to pull out of your bag and touch up and make great conversation pieces and MAC definitely knows how to put together collections and unique packaging. SO if you have a girlfriend, family member or even you that loves MAC and love the holiday collections and packaging, then this is for you!
Have you gotten any of the MAC Holiday Keepsake kits? Let me know in the comments :) Thanks for stopping by the blog, Sherry
Color Swatches from top:
At a whopping $1.99 at my local CVS pharmacy, these lipsticks are great to collect all the colors. I read about these on another blog and learned that they last a long time. Most lippies (even stains) do NOT last on me and so I am always on the lookout for a lippie that can give my lips a run for the money!
The packaging on these suck. The lippie doesn't go all the way down and goes against the lid. The lid also doesn't stay on real well and you have to be careful that it doesn't open in your purse or makeup bag. The lipstick itself is dry going on and needs exfoliated and moisturized lips beforehand. But let me tell you this, these are no joke staying on. The color lasts and when "fixed" after applying they aren't going anywhere, even on my lips! The colors range from nudes to pinks to reds to dark vampy looks. I love them!
What do you think? Will you try the Wet N Wild Mega Last lippies? Let me know your thoughts and hope you have a great day! Sherry

Available at Ulta for $20
Since I quit smoking, I am not as self conscious about my hair smelling like smoke. However, this hair mist also boasts being able to give a shine and help with frizz control. I have used this twice and the fragrance is not overwhelming and the mist does give a bit of a shine. The frizz control part is not as noticeable to me and we have had some really humid days this last week.
Who would have thought that there would be a product for your hair to smell good but there are lots of these in stores, from the inexpensive to the exhorbitant! I like the idea and although it isn't something I feel is necessary, it is definitely indulgent!
Have you tried any of the new hair fragrance mists? Do tell! Blessings, Sherry
$45 at Sephora an exclusive petite liner set for the holidays
Midnight in Paris (new)
When I was in my local Sephora, I decided that I wanted to try some new and exciting colors for eyeliners. I have been quite boring and wanted to try something a bit more daring. Enter Marc Jacobs Skyliners with some fun colors. I swatched them in the store and the first thing I noticed is that they are vivid and some have sparkles in them. Secondly, I noticed that they glided on very easily and that is a big deal for my older eyes :)!. Lastly ladies let me tell you that these freakin' last. Whew I really had to work to get them off my arm!!!! These are my first Marc Jacobs makeup product and I really love them.
Not all the colors have sparkle in them, there is a few that are plain and they are all beautiful. This is a set that is specific for the holidays and I was pleased to get my hands on these. If you are looking for some great eyeliners, great colors and some serious lasting power these are definitely the ones.
Have you tried these skyliners? Tell me your thoughts below, would love to hear from you! Blessings, Sherry

This week is full of family, food and relaxing and I will be back to the blog as soon as the holidays have eased up! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and for my new followers, ya'll rock!!!

ELF Lip exfoliator
Tarte Maracuja Lip exfoliator
Laura Geller lip trip smoothing sugar scrub
Back in the day (:) I just used a soft toothbrush to exfoliate my lips so that my lipstick and glosses didn't look sickly. Although I can still use that particular way, using lip scrubs are so luxurious! From inexpensive ELF twist up tube exfoliator to the Tarte tin, these lip exfoliators are a pleasure to use. As for the ELF tube, it is very gritty and should be used with a light hand. The Tarte is the least gritty of the bunch and the Laura Geller sugar scrub is just right!
The ELF lip exfoliator can be obtained at Target and the other two are available at Sephora. Yes, the winter is when these are used the most, however; summertime swimming, sun and wind tend to chap my lips badly and I want to make sure they are soft and silky. Hey, my husband gets the benefit of lip care!!
What lip scrubs/exfoliators do you use? Do you have a favorite? Do tell! Sherry
