3 Lip Sets to LUST For...

Long time, no talk! So I've started a job at Sephora inside JCPenney and it has gotten my creative juices flowing. For the first time in a long time I've been inspired to blog! Here we go...

Normally as the weather gets colder, I get progressively more depressed. But colder weather does mean Christmas is getting closer, and that means holiday gift sets. Score! These are the three sets I'm currently lusting after...
OBSESSIVE COMPULSIVE COSMETICS Lip Tar All-Star Mini x 4 Set ($20)... I currently only own one lip tar but it's pretty amazing, super pigmented, and long-wearing. I think these minis would be perfect for anybody's collection, and the color selection is perfect to create the ever-so-popular "ombre" lip look. ;)

Kat Von D Spellbinding Lipstick Set ($39)... Speaking of minis, these little babies are tiny. (Just a word of warning to those of you who haven't seen any of these in person!) That being said, this set is a great way to try out 10 different shades, and in several different formulas. I just received this in the mail and I'm itching to swatch them all!
MARC JACOBS BEAUTY I Lovemarc Collection ($350)... I couldn't talk about lip sets and not mention this one, even though there's no way I'm going to drop that kind of dough on it. (sorry Marc! lol) Thirteen full-sized lipsticks in a ultra sleek lacquered case. I mean, what is there to say about this except, O. M. G. - let me wipe up my drool -

What are the lip/holiday sets you are lusting after?! Share below!

January/February Beauty Wishlist!

YouTubers and bloggers have been doing their "2012 Favorites" videos/posts lately and it has inspired me to create a wishlist! Let's go in order of application...

First up!
Origins Skincare
Origins Skincare Must Haves ($55)... Recently I have been using the Origins Clear Improvement Charcoal Mask. I've really been liking it and thought it'd be nice to try some of their other products. This little set is from Sephora (you can get it here) and includes a face wash, exfoliater, moisturizer, eye cream, and anti-aging serum. Sounds good to me!!

Dior Diorskin Forever Flawless Perfection Wear Makeup
Diorskin Forever Flawless Foundation ($47)... This is inspired by a video by Lorraine, TheCurrentCustom, on YouTube. I'm still grieving over my beloved YSL Teint Resist being discontinued, and it sounds like this might be a good replacement! It's supposed to be medium to full coverage, long wearing, and doesn't need a powder on top. Perfect. (find it here)

Dolce & Gabbana The Eyeshadow Smooth Eye Colour Quad in "Jewels 142"
Dolce & Gabbana Eye Colour Quad ($59)... Sephora now carries Dolce & Gabbana cosmetics so obviously I need to try some of their products out! I'm not sure which quad I like the most, but this one in Jewels 142 is something a little bit different for me. Sure, I have these colors, but not in one palette! Have any of you tried D&G cosmetics?? (find it here)

Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara in "Onyx"
Hourglass Film Noir Mascara in Onyx ($28)... Christine from Temptalia named this the best high end dramatic mascara for 2013. Now, I have mascaras practically coming out of my ears, but I would really like to give this one a go! (find it here)

Too Faced Perfect Lips in "Nude"
Too Faced Perfect Lips liner in Nude ($18.50)... I can't remember the video I was watching, but one YouTuber raved about this lip liner. I am forever on the hunt for the perfect nude lip liner. Quite frankly it's getting old! I just feel like I need to try this one. It's sold out at the moment but when it's back in I will definitely be purchasing! (find it here)

So what is on your wishlist?? Have you tried any Dolce & Gabbana products? Do tell!! :)

NEW Illamasqua "Generation Q" Collection!!!

My favorite blushes, hands down, are from Illamasqua. The quality and pigmentation can't be beat.. not to mention they have the best matte shades ever! So, naturally, I have been wanting to try some of their eye shadows. :)  I'm not one for singles (I just don't end up using them!) so I was so excited to see these pics of new eye shadow palettes! 
Illamasqua "Generation Q" Collection

The upcoming collection comes out in October, but some products may be released early! I have my eye on this one...
Illamasqua eye shadow palette in "Empower"
These shades are right up my alley! *LOVE* Here's my other fav products from the collection...
Illamasqua eye shadow palette in "Complement"
This palette is beautiful too! However, the brown shade looks to be a cream, which I'm not so keen on.

Illamasqua Gleam in "Aurora"
I really don't need any new highlighters, but this "Gleam" in Aurora looks gorgeous! Ugh, if only I could actually use up the products I have :( 

So have you seen this collection yet?? Will you check it out?!

New! MAC Styleseeker Collection...

For some reason I had NO CLUE this MAC collection was coming out... am I the only one who was in the dark on this one?! Anyway, I thought I'd share the Styleseeker promo pics with you guys!

MAC Styleseeker Collection

I actually quite like the little duos that MAC comes out with. There are usually a couple with permanent shades, and a couple with limited edition shades. I'm thinking of getting the duo below...

MAC Marche aux Puces Eye Shadow x2... This duo comes with Chessa, a midtone golden orange (veluxe pearl) and Indie Spirit, a chestnut brown (matte). This would be a great duo for fall! I'm debating whether to wait for Temptalia's review, or just go for it and purchase... ?!

MAC Eye Shadow in Chessa
MAC Eye Shadow in Indie Spirit 

Are there any products in this collection that you are thinking of getting?? What other of MAC's million collections are you looking forward to?

INs and OUTs... to LIVE FOR...

I haven't done one of these posts in literally AGES and honestly I love them. Sandra just posted one and it inspired me to do one of my own!


- Fall clothing! I can't wait until I don't feel as though I have to swim through the hot air here, and all of the new fall clothing that has been coming out looks amazing!

- Searching for a new handbag.. this is almost an "OUT" as I haven't been finding much that I love at the moment :/ but here's a RZ bag that is a top contender! Not to mention it's on sale, which is always a plus!
Rachel Zoe "Zoe Mini" find it here

- Re-building my wardrobe.. I've been trying to spruce up my "look" to go a bit more sophisticated, blazers, pencil skirts, etc. It's definitely a work in progress!

- Watching Pretty Little Liars.. such great inspiration for me to finally quit being lazy and actually do my hair for once! I mean seriously? They have their hair curled and perfect every single second of this show.. *gag*..... ok ok I'm just jealous ;)


- Being stuck in the house.. this heat's a bitch.
