Just like that the year has flown by. As I sit here and can hardly believe it, I can’t let it make me late on blog posts for 2014. Last month I gushed about and obsessed over a few new gifts from others and gifts to myself.
Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette
Full of romantic rosy hues, this is the hottest makeup item right now and I’m totally on the bandwagon with everyone else. There are all different finishes of shadows, most of which that make my green eyes pop, so I’m excited to play with this more and find even more eyeshadow looks to experiment with.
Dior ‘Lip Glow’ Color Reviver Balm
This item has been on my wish list forever. The balm is ultra luxurious and has a real unique texture that feels plush on the lips. It also leaves behind the loveliest healthy pink sheen on the lips. Let’s just say I can’t afford for my lips to grow addicted to this stuff. Thank goodness for Nordstrom Notes!
Crown Brush Dual Ended Angle Liner & Spoolie Brow Brush
From the “All Eyes on You” Eyesential Kit, this is one of my favorite brushes from the bunch since it’s just so handy. With a firm slant tip on one end, and a sturdy spoolie on the other, this is so quick and easy to use in the morning for my fairly low maintenance brows. The whole kit is actually a fantastic bargain if you like the ease of having two brushes in one.
Essie ‘Red Nouveau’
There’s nothing like a classic red manicure for winter, and Red Nouveau is my signature shade. Somewhere on the red-orange side of the spectrum, I find this polish makes my hands and fingers look especially clean and elegant. It’s perfect for both fingers and toes.
Popbasic Melodie Dress
Featured in one of my most recent outfit posts, the coral-red dress from the Melodie collection is something special. Not only is it reversible from front to back, it is easily transformed from day to night. Slightly on the sheer side, this was a great match for opaque black tights for a polished evening look, but I also think it would look awesome with a leather jacket and ankle boots.
Outrage Fashion Monroe Necklace
Another piece that’s made a recent appearance on my blog, this crystal bib necklaces from Outrage Fashion is one of the most glam jewelry pieces I own. It just dazzles and sparkles like mad under lights. While this item is currently sold out on their site, check back often and scope out some of their other amazing statement pieces. I can almost guarantee you’ll find something for you!
MELT Candle in Spiced Pumpkin & Amaretto
Alert! This scent is limited edition and it’s likely almost sold out at your local Target, so get it soon if you’re interested. It’s the warmest, most inviting scent that’s on the sweet yet sophisticated side. This line is super high quality and exclusive to Target stores, so definitely scope them out on your next shopping trip. I mean, come on, just look at that gorgeous white etched glass jar!
What stood out from your beauty collection and closet last month? I would love to know!
