Wine Sinner is a long-time favorite shade of mine, a deep creamy burgundy that simply feels fantastic on the lips.  Ice Queen is a barely there golden shimmer that is great to layer over a darker shade, or wear alone.

Retail price for the set is $45 (a savings of $3 from buying each shade individually).

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogThe Cross Classic Century Medalist Ballpoint Pen has been added to my Holiday Gift Guide. In high school, I carried a Cross pen and pencil set with me in school.  Somehow, my gleaming 10k gold writing instruments made school just a little more glam, and a little less ordinary.  If there’s someone on your list who has an appreciation of the finer things, you really must shop the Cross collection of fine writing tools.

beauty blog, makeup blog, product reviews blog, beauty reviews blogThis Q&Q solar-powered watch is such a fun gift for kids!
