New Makeup, Holiday Collections, Holiday Palettes & Giveaway!

Hey you! Happy weekend to us! I hope you have some amazing plans. I'm still trying to get over this cold--I am so behind on comments and will be spending the weekend catching up. I hope you catch up on my posts--I've got some good ones. But today's post is making me really excited because it's all NEW makeup! New brands, new collections, new holiday collections, and new holiday palettes--I can't wear to share! All products shown were sent for consideration.
Yes, there is more than lip gloss here to comment on--
you gotta click to SEE MORE!

First up is one of my fave brands I've shared on here: Mirabella Cosmetics. They have their holiday collection out, called Faerie, and these are just a few of the items. If you're not into dark colors for the holidays, but love glow and sparkle, you'll love these.

In addition to the Color Luxe Glosses (which smell and look amazing, btw) they have Long Wearing Eyeshadow--this is in Myth. It's a solid pigment with a sponge-like texture. This is very pigmented and is the color you see here.

This is my fave! I've been wearing it a lot lately on here, including today's video. It's the Mirabella Brilliant Mineral Highlighting Powder. This is the highlight you need to glow for the holidays. I share other uses in the video at the end.

Pur Minerals is another brand I love and I've got new stuff to talk about. The Correcting Primer gives a gorgeous glow to the skin. Sometimes I'll just wear this and a BB cream or tinted moisturizer. They also have a new brow pencil with a highlight. I use it in my water line.

And my favorite item: Pur Minerals Soul Mattes palette. Look at those colors--think pinky-mauves with a couple of brown neutrals. Everything is matte and I love the pigmentation. I have some codes to save y'all some money at PurMinerals.com: 

  • Nov 20-23 Boy one item, get one free! Code: BFBOGO14
  • Nov 28-30 30% off Code: PURBF14
  • Cyber Monday Dec 1--30% off Code: PURCM14
New brand time! If you are new to makeup, know a teen just getting into makeup, like natural-looking makeup, dislike clutter, don't want to deal with brushes, and want to invest in just a few products, then you'll love Nudestix.com. Two sisters, who happen to be models, teamed up with their mom to create this pencil-based line. It's genius. They have pencil concealer, shadow, lip/cheek colors, and eye pencils. Everything is creamy, easy to apply, and looks natural, but better.

Each item comes in its own pencil case--check out the mirror in the lid. Plus, there is a sharpener built into the cap of the pencil. No more digging around your purse for items--it's all in the case. Nudestix has been my gotta-get-ready-in-5-minutes look lately.

And now for a few of the Bare Minerals/Buxom Holiday Collection for 2014. You're going to want everything--or at least any makeup lover on your list will! First up is the Buxom Lip Gloss Roulette. Look at that packaging! Inside are 15 mini lip polishes and lip cremes. Buxom is one of my fave high-end lip gloss brands. You could buy this and split them up amongst girlfriends for stocking stuffers (or keep them for yourself. I won't tell)!

Palette time! If you're looking for a sleek travel palette, try The Magic Act. Unfold this cute herringbone palette and you'll get 6 neutral shadows (3 matte, 3 satin), and a selection of blushes that can be used to contour with too.

These Bare Minerals eyeliner kits are a steal at $29 each. Afternoon Delights features more wearable shades, with a gorgeous gold and emerald added for the holidays. peaking of holidays, I Heart the Nightlife features darker colors including a gorgeous silver for NYE!

Dolly's High Roller Collection features liner, the prettiest nude lip gloss and cream, 4 shadows, an eyeliner, a blush, contour, and highlight. 

It's all about The Main Attraction! This kit has a full-size Buxom gloss, a mini lipstick (brown nude and they are beautiful paired together), a Lasting Liner, a Lash Domination mascara, travel blush brush, blush, and eyeshadow duo.

You definitely need some brushes to apply everything, right? How about these Buffing Beauties? This kit comes with 5 brushes for eyes and face in a cute packaging that resembles a clutch. And guess what? I am giving one away!

  11. I want that Nudestix ... I've never even heard of that.

  12. So many kits! Love them all! ashleywherring at gmail dot com

  13. I can't believe you're still trying to shake the sick, too! It's like a never-ending thing, isn't it!? I've just got the stuffy nose/no energy bit and other than that back to normal.. I hope you get better soon!!
    Now, back to the blog; WOAH. What a post! haha! I had to stop my drooling... Everything in here.. I love the idea of the Stix company. I am going to look them up now, so thank you for sharing. I am also a HUGE fan of Buxom. One of my friend recommended it on her blog and after wearing "my" lip polish (of course I bought the Stephanie name one...) I was completely and utterly love-struck! The tingle, the shine, and the fact that they aren't gloomy and kind of set to a "tacky" finish... UGH, too much love!
    I also love the looks of the Main Attraction and the Buffing Beauties! Good luck to all that enter!

    PS; Your dog is the CUTEST little sweater-bug EVER.
    Much Love,
    -Stephanie Eva
