I have to keep a companion palette with a light enough blender, highlight, etc. But not with this palette! & it is so pretty! I’m a huge Gwen Stefani fan as well- I listened to Return of Saturn repeatedly so many times when I was younger that I can still remember every word. Keep reading to check out more! [Read more…]

Holiday sets come & go so I’ve come up with some keywords that really catch my eye: PERMANENT &FULL SIZE are the big ones! The Too Faced La Petit Tresor Holiday La Creme Lipstick Trio caught my eye for those reasons…plus there is a glitter bag. I’m a sucker for a glitter bag! Last year they released something similar I believe but each glitter had added glitter. I passed. This year the trio includes three permanent shades: Nude Beach, Wham! (a limited edition to my knowledge), & Taffy. Keep reading to check them out!
