DIOR Addict Ultra Gloss in 643 EVERDIOR Review and Swatches

I never wear a lip gloss and this was such an impulse purchase for me but I am glad I did. I was looking for lip gloss sets as holiday gifts and had my eyes on this set from Bobbi Brown but then I went to Sephora to stock up on my HG concealers and eyeliners during the VIB Sale and found these beautiful lipglosses. I was attracted to the packaging (lets be honest) but then I swatched it and the texture seemed very smooth, non sticky and the glitter was so evenly distributed. So I bought it with doubt that this will soon be returned and I didn't even photograph it until today. The shade I picked is a coral with golden glitter. Its called EVERDIOR. I also loved another one called DIORAMA which I am totally picking when I am at Sephora again. Diorama is a mauvy pink and I have had a similar shade long time ago from Marc Jacobs, so I know that shade works for me, and swatching all the glosses in store made me feel like a teen again. I only wore lip glosses during my teens and well into my twenties, until I started working and a shiny gloss seemed rather immature at work. But during the holidays, I love sparkles and anything shiny is on my list. This also makes a nice topper for nude lipstick or just about any lipstick.

TIFFANY & CO. Tiffany Eau De Parfum Review

Tiffany & Co.'s new fragrance Tiffany Eau de Parfum is a summation of how I feel about luxury - its glorious, self satisfying, opulent yet understated and it makes me feel so uplifted because I relate to the scent in many ways. Its the kind of scent that feels like me. It might not be the most unique fragrance ever, but there is something special about it, that kept me wanting it for a month, before I decided to get the full size 2.5 oz bottle. I usually stick to 1.7oz bottles for perfumes because I do not have one signature/favorite scent, but a handful and I keep switching between them, depending on how I feel. With Tiffany, I wanted to go full size because I knew I will be wearing it all the time. The middle notes of Iris in this dreamy floral scent is what keeps this signature perfume unique to Tiffany. The bottle is inspired by diamonds and  you have to check out the bottle shots at the end of this post. It looks pretty sitting on the vanity and the elegant silhouette fits nicely with other accessories on my dresser!

BECCA Eye Lights Palette + Champagne Pop Glow on the Go Kit Review and Swatches

 I am so ready for the luminous, sparkly, glowy look this holiday season and that is why I had to pick up these shimmering holiday sets from Becca Cosmetics. They are also the first ever Becca product I own! I always wanted to try their most coveted highlighters but somehow I was always more distracted with my love for YSL, Chanel and Givenchy for cosmetics. So, I had been waiting for a palette that features a collection of Becca highters and with these two products I have pretty much tasted everything from Becca in terms of highlghters for warmer complexions. I also wanted to get the holiday blush palette from Après Ski Glow Collection but I couldn't find it at Sephora.

So for today I am sharing these beautiful products from Becca Cosmetics with swatches and why they are my favorite this holiday season. Catch up on my holiday favorites here.

L'OCCITANE Holiday Sets - Advent Calendar and Crackers Collection Review

Today I will reveal what is inside  L'occitane's Advent Calendar and the Crackers Collection. I thoroughly enjoyed opening these up and finding delightful good sized minis inside. Most of the minis are just over an ounce in volume, so there is a lot of product in here. No wonder these boxes are heavy and everything smells amazing! Even the boxes smell like the gardens of Provence and the little surprises inside will definitely please everyone.
The Advent Calendar features 24 minis - one for each day leading up to Christmas and the Crackers Collection features a trio of crackers, each containing three minis. They make such adorable stocking stuffers.

GIVENCHY Rouge Interdit Satin Lipstick in ROSE NOCTURNE 06 Review and Swatches

I would purchase this lipstick over and over again. Its one of the best satin formulas on the market and I am a huge fan of Givenchy's Rouge Interdit Satin lipsticks for a while (check out my review here and here), so I was dying to get my hands on this new launch. Givenchy describes Rouge Interdit Satin lipstick as 'more than a lipstick: it's a fashion accessory with a designer signature. The black and silver tube is an objet d'art adorned with a ribbon at one end that unlocks this beautiful piece.'  This beautiful lipstick deserved that kind of praise.
The exceptional quality, smooth texture, that precious packaging and the beautiful shade range makes it so hard to resist a product like this and honestly, from now onwards, I am only buying Givenchy lipsticks!
