The countdown to Christmas has officially begun! Shopping for so many people can be a daunting task, especially when trying to stay within a reasonable budget. One solution to that dilemma is handcrafting your own thoughtful gift(s). One thing that I enjoy doing every year is crafting my very own DIY mason jar filled with all things beauty for my friends. Today I’d like to share this as a gift idea. If you are still scurrying around doing last minute shopping, I can assure you that this took me less than 20 minutes to put together once I had all the items I needed. I hope that you can draw some inspiration from this post. Kindly scroll below for details.

I can’t believe that it’s December already. Things are really starting to move at a more frenzied pace with all that this busy time of the year brings. There are so many things I want to review, and time has only been the only limitation. I do have a three week break on the horizon so I hope too be able to write more. With that being said, today I bring you swatches and my first impressions of the Too Faced White Chocolate Chip Palette. The palette was an online exclusive released on Cyber Monday at Sephora and I ordered it during the early access link I received for VIB Rouge cardholders. I had a feeling that it would sell out quickly, and sure enough it did. It’s an adorable extension of their popular Chocolate Bar palettes. Here, we have the White Chocolate Chip palette, which is a travel size companion that fits perfectly in the palm of your hand.

Hello everyone! It’s that time of year again. Sephora’s annual VIB Rouge Sale starts tomorrow from November 4-7th. Early access is granted to VIB Rouge members–members at the highest tier–so they can shop coveted items first. This highly anticipated event is an opportunity to stock up on your beauty favorites or finally purchase the high end beauty products you’ve been eyeing for months while saving money in the process. This is also the perfect opportunity to purchase coveted gifts sets that are limited edition and typically sell out fast. Today I would like to share the items that are currently on my VIB Sale wish list. Since I was able to purchase many items from the Employee Appreciation Sale last month, my list is rather small. I will also be sharing what I purchased from the Sephora Friends and Family Sale last month as well.

As soon as the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Surreal Light Palette was available online, I promptly purchased it. I am a huge fan of their luxury line of makeup products. I’ve purchased every limited edition face palette to date and once I saw a sneak peek of this item online and the shades contained within, I knew I had to have it. Today I’ll be sharing with you a first look of the palette along with swatches and my first impressions.

Marc Jacobs Beauty’s limited edition Style Eye Con No. 20 About Last Night has finally arrived and this one is a stunner. After seeing images of it surface online, I knew I had to have it. I placed an order through Sephora.com and I literally could not wait to unbox this palette when it arrived at my doorstep. Today I’ll be sharing images, product details, and swatches. Featuring 20 shades in a range of matte, shimmer, and metallic finishes, this palette surely has a wide range to colors to create looks for both day and night.
