I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! Did you score anything good for Black Friday or Cyber Monday? Please share! I drove to the mall on Black Friday thinking everything would be less busy in the afternoon. I saw the parking situation was really bad and left immediately. I did venture to do a little shopping on Saturday but didn't really pick up much that was on sale.
A few highlights and news bits from my Instagram feed. Since the holiday season is upon us, if you're wanting to wear a red lip but are a neutral makeup lover like me, I rounded up 9 sheer red balms that are more natural looking than the traditional bold red.
For neutrals, I did a B2M for a few MAC Lipsticks in Koi Coral, Velvet Teddy and Patisserie. MAC lipsticks still make my lips dry out and peel, but the colors are so good I can't stop wearing them.
Chanel relaunched the Les Tissages de Chanel in Tweed Pink - full review in yesterday's post here. Did you end up purchasing it? Or are you waiting for spring to arrive at counters?
Last week I was thrilled to attend the Tom Ford Lips and Boys preview at the Beverly Hills store with Rae from The Raeviewer. We had so much fun and swatched up a storm. I'm waiting for a few to arrive this week and also my face is recovering from an allergic reaction - so thanks for your patience while waiting for the swatches. First impressions are that this year's new colors are almost all shimmery. The one cream that stood out was Austin which is a nude pink cream. My heart belongs to Jake which is the perfect natural pink shimmer. I can't wait to share the swatches of my picks.
Right now my favorite perfume is the L'Occitane Pierre Hermé Jasmin-Immortelle Neroli Eau de Toilette. I'm seriously considering a backup even though I've almost never backed up a perfume (I did it once for a limited-edition Jo Malone one).
My latest discovery is the Le Labo x The Laundress Detergent and I'm in trouble with this one. I bought Rose 31 and used it to wash our sheets and pillow cases and it's amazing! I haven't bought any Le Labo fragrances although I have smelled them at Barneys on numerous occasions. If you're a Le Labo fan - please let me know what your favorites are!
Last but not least, if you're a Nespresso lover, the holiday variations are out in three flavors: Vanilla Cardamom, Vanilla Amaretti and Ciocco Ginger. I ordered all three and my favorite is the Ciocco Ginger. I need to restock before they're gone!
Hope your week is going well so far!
