Laura Mercier Fresh Fig Honey Bath Review

Fresh Fig Honey Bath, Laura Mercier

Fresh Fig Honey Bath, Laura Mercier

Press Sample

In this blogger’s personal opinion, the Laura Mercier Fresh Fig Honey Bath product is an ideal gift for a hostess.  I absolutely love that the Laura Mercier bath product is packaged with a honey wand to luxuriously drip the formula into a steamy tub.

Laura Mercier recommends that you dip the honey dripper into the product once, and twirl under running water.  After the bath, follow-up with soufflé body cream in the same scent.  I may not like the taste of fig, but I find the smell of fig so delectable!  This product is such a wonderful treat, and anyone opening their home to you this holiday season would appreciate the sentiment.

Retail price is $40.

MAC Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint in Glorious Intent

Press Sample, Affiliate LinksMAC Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint in Glorious Intent is a sexy deep berry shade that is an amazing selection for Winter 2013!  It’s a great choice if you’re in search of something red, but generally shy away from bold colors.

Sheen Supreme Lipglass Tint is administered by twisting the base of the container to push the product up through the tube and out the brush that at the tip.  The product delivers the look of a sheer jelly on the lips, it’s high-gloss and buildable.  Use one sheer coat to keep the look casual and lighter, and add layers more intense color.

Never forget this shade is a stain, so you’ll also have the benefit of long-lasting color, even as the gloss wears off.

Retail price is $20.

Check it out at MACCosmetics.com, or department stores like Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, and Macys.

Orchid and Sugar Frost, Caviar Stick Eye Colour
