Sun-kissed tint

 Sahara Dune

 Siberia Anthracite

Aztec Gold

 Limited Edition Eye Quads:
The individual shades all click in and out of the palette casing, so you can switch shades between palettes and quads. Shades come in three different finishes: true mattes, iridescent shimmers and eye-catching sparkles. All the shades can be used dry for easy blending or wet for more intense, vibrant color. Sahara Dune, Aztec Gold, Essaouria Bronze, Amazonian Earth .

Honolulu Pink Matte
 Color Crush Matte Lipstick: Formulated with high-purity pigments for intense color. Nourishing, long-lasting finish. Enriched with Community Trade Brazil Nut Oil and beeswax
100% vegetarian

Nevada Gold

Eye Colour Sticks: Available in 4 shades: Black, Gold, Bronze and Purple. High-definition metallic eyeshadow stick in gold. 100% vegetarian. Enriched with babassu oil and beeswax.

Formula: Limited Edition Eye Shadow Quads: With high pigmentation and a silky smooth application, different types of long wearing eye looks can be achieved --- plus the individual pans can be removed to mix -n- match for customization. Each quad contains, highlighter, base, and shadows, both matte and shimmery, with a mini-guide on how to, shown on the outside box cover. The formula is semi-sheer to rich and can be applied dry, or wet, for more intense looks. There's minimal creasing and no fallout! Also, the cases are modern, sleek and include a high-quality compact mirror.

Eye Colour Sticks: These creamy eye sticks are super easy to glide over the lids and are comfortable to wear. I was sent the Nevada Gold shade, which is SUPER high intensity micro-fine shimmer gold with a taupe base. Perfect to be used as a highlighter during the holidays for glamorous looks, and since there are no chunks of glitter, it's quite sophisticated for any age. It'll be fun to play around with several color combinations to create your own personal style.

Color Crush Matte: Lipsticks: While matte lipsticks make some girls nervous, the formula here is smooth and creamy. The lipstick does not dry out and has long-wear time. Also, it does not bleed or irritate the sensitive lip area. Honolulu Pink, shown above, is such a natural shade. If you're into the modern, nude pink lip but are afraid of pink colors, you'll appreciate how pretty this one is.

Honey Bronze Drops of Sun: Honey Bronze has a liquid-type formula and works mostly as a tinted skin product. I have really fair skin and was afraid to apply it on, however, it absorbs quickly and does not "stain". I used a slight amount only and had to work it rather quickly onto my cheeks in order not to have it streak. The result was a warm, sun-kissed look on my skin. Perfect for winter time weather when skin tends to become more dull in appearance. Your friends will think that you just came back from a weekend island getaway!

Hello gorgeous readers! Have you heard about the DermOrganic brand? The line offers a large selection of cruelty-free, vegan and made with certified organic ingredients, hair care. Also, the entire collection uses genuine Argan Oil from Morocco. I know my curly-hair babes love Argan oil since it's an essential staple in helping to keep frizz at bay while nurturing dry ends. Whatever your hair type, DermOrganic has something best suited for individual hair care needs. The two products sent to me that are featured in this review are: Argan Oil Shampoo and Intensive Hair Repair Masque. In addition, for purchase from DermOrganic, you'll find gel's, hairspray, hair texturizer's, a curl collection -- specifically for curly locks and a special color care system devised to maintain color treated hair. Read my review below then head on over to Ulta Beauty or your local Target to shop for more products. Stay Beautiful! XOXO

DermOrganic Argan Hair Care Collection is Cruelty-Free, 70% Organic, Made with Certified Organic Ingredients. Is Vegan, Sulfate, Paraben, and Gluten Free! Made with no chemicals, artificial colors or dyes.

Daily Conditioning Shampoo, made with organic Argan Oil from Morocco, is color safe and made with facial cleansers. Revitalizes and enlivens hair. Intensive Repair Masque, repairs damage, smooths, softens, strengthens texture and improves elasticity.

Formula: Daily Conditioning Shampoo: Firstly, the shampoo smells amazing. It has a light and fragrant herbal scent. The consistency is very rich and creamy so only a small amount of product is needed to lather up. Yes, it lathers! Although, the shampoo is sulfate free and made from 70% organic ingredients. After use, my hair was super soft and my curls were left bouncy and shiny. Intensive Hair Repair Masque: Used as a conditioner after shampooing, the thick masque made it easy for me to comb through my wild curls while leaving my hair manageable. The results, my locks were static-free, full of life and soft to the touch. I love using both products and love the use of certified organic ingredients in the formula. Plus, the entire line is super affordable, cruelty-free and right now, they would make perfect holiday gifts or stocking stuffers!

Just in time for holiday gift giving, the Emjoi brand, a leader of innovative beauty grooming tools, has introduced the eRase e60 Epilator, in exciting new colors and patterns available in limited quantity at QVC. I will be reviewing the floral one. In addition to the eRase e60 featured in this post, other grooming tools that are available in the collection are, the Micro-Pedi Nano (for easy pedicures) and the Micro-Mani (to smooth finger and toe nails). You can find all of the products on the brand's website which will be linked below. Stay Beautiful! XOXO

 eRase e60 quickly and effectively removes unwanted hair from the face and body with minimum discomfort. Features an award winning patented, 3 disc tweezer system and dual speed power. 60 tweezer action discs arranged in skin-tautening dual opposing heads, removes hair from the root (as short as 0.3 mm), leaving skin smooth for up to 6 weeks.

eRase includes adapter, cleaning brush, clear comfort guard and pouch

zippered travel/storage case included

Opinion: My experience with eRase e60 has been a positive one. Before you get started, be sure to read the included instructions. The book states to exfoliate skin area first before use. I cannot stress this enough! If you do not exfoliate legs, arms or facial area first, it may cause bumps due to the ingrown hairs being forced out. However, if you prep the skin properly, the experience will be satisfactory. I used the highest power setting and glided the epilator gentle and quickly in upward strokes on my legs. This made the tweezing sensation less painful and pulled the hairs from the roots more efficiently. eRase really does remove the shortest hairs! A slight tingly/pulling sensation did occur, however, it was not brutally painful and did not last long. Afterwards, apply a soothing body oil, either any body oil or one made specifically for after hair removal to calm the skin. Any soothing product containing Azulene will do. My legs felt smoother and softer to the touch. So far it has been about over a week now since using eRase and pesky hairs have not grown in yet. Yay! You'll definitely want to have eRase on hand for quick touch-ups. Additionally, it's perfect to travel with since it's a convenient size. eRase e60 is a powerful little beauty grooming tool that packs a punch and gets the job done quickly. Yes, there may be some pain depending on your skin sensitivity, however, it is an affordable and easy to use system in the privacy of your home that allows you t forgo expensive salon costs. I'm super sensitive and managed the pain just fine so it's not that bad. I would recommend the product. Consider purchasing eRase as a practical gift for family and friends this holiday season. Let me know about your experiences with eRase in the comment section below.

Availability: QVC, Emjoi, eRase e60 $79.95
