Sephora VIB Sale 2016 – Cruelty Free Options!

Ahhhhh!!! It’s that time of year again! Yup, Sephora’s annual VIB / VIB Rouge 20% Off Sale! If you’re a Rouge member, you are probably aware that the sale just began for you (code “20ROUGE”)! ? For Rouge members, the sale runs from November 4-7, while VIB members get a go at the sale from November 11-14 (code “20VIB”). Given this always exciting event, I thought I would share some of my cruelty free recommendations with you today! So let’s get started as this could become rather lengthy. ?

The Grande Hotel Cafe from Too Faced for Holiday 2016!

We’re looking at another Too Faced Holiday Set today!!! 🙂 Today’s offering is called the Grande Hotel Café and is by far the cutest of this year’s Too Faced sets. What makes it so cute? It’s actually shaped like a little dollhouse! Complete with doors that open! Inside there’s an adorable coffee shop scene and it’s filled with makeup!!! 🙂 If there is one thing that Too Faced always gets right during the Holidays, it’s their packaging. So packaging gets an A+, but how ‘bout the products inside? Let’s bust open those doors and give them a good test! 😉

Holiday is Here! – Too Faced The Chocolate Shop Set

Can you believe that Holiday gift sets are already hitting shelves?!?! I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m not ready for this yet! But alas, we must face the pretty packaging and huge values to fork over our hard earned cash to spoil some of the other makeup lovers in our lives…and perhaps ourselves as well. 😀 I’m going to start the season off with the brand that almost always has my favorite packaging – Too Faced! The first set we’re diving into is the all-in-one Sephora exclusive from Too Faced called The Chocolate Shop!

12 Days of Tarte Petite Treats Advent Calendar – Day 12

Well, the 12 Days of Christmas are actually just about to start, but the 12 Days of Tarte have come to an end. Insert bittersweet music here. 🙂 It’s been fun opening all these doors – though they’ve been surprisingly difficult to open! 🙂 I hope you have enjoyed seeing the spoils with me…and if not, I really appreciate you sticking around despite them! 🙂 So, on to the door!!!

Nice! It’s a mini Maracuja Oil! It’s in a really nice dropper bottle too! So pretty! I have tried the Maracuja Oil before, but felt like it broke me out. I’m not convinced it was the oil though, so I’ll probably give it another go. This has been fun, so thank you Tarte for entering the beauty advent calendar world this year! 🙂 To all of you fantastic readers, I want to thank you for sticking with me through this crazy month and I wish you all the bestest of Christmases!!! Or whatever else you do…or don’t!…celebrate. 🙂

The Body Shop’s 24 Days of Joy Advent Calendar – December 24

Merry Christmas Eve!!! I hope you are all having a fantastic day filled with food, friends & family and fun. We have reached our last 24 Days of Joy door, so let’s get on with the opening! 🙂

Oooh! It’s a mini White Musk Eau de Toilette! I don’t remember ever smelling this before. Now, having smelled it, it’s nice. Not my kind of scent, but it’s nice. It’s kind of floral and clean to my untrained sniffer. It’s not an overpoweringly floral or clingy kind of scent. It’s very nice. A really lovely way to end this year’s advent calendar. 🙂 I hope you have all at least sort of enjoyed opening the last 24 days with me. If not, thanks for sticking around anyway! 🙂 As I’ve said, I’m hoping to get back to somewhat normal soon, but I really can’t promise anything yet. Fingers crossed! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas Eve and a spectacular Christmas Day (assuming you celebrate)!

12 Days of Tarte Petite Treats Advent Calendar – Day 11

Running late again and for that I’m sorry. In the sake of not boring you with my excuses…and so I can finally get some sleep!…let’s just jump right in!

It’s a mini (real mini) Maracuja C-Brighter Eye Treatment…aka, it’s a Vitamin C Eye Cream! I actually love this eye cream. It’s one of my favorites and I swear it actually does lighten up the dark circles under my eyes a bit. Fantastic, highly recommended stuff! 🙂 I was really wondering what was going to be behind today’s door because it was a tiny little rectangle. Now I know! 🙂 Torn feelings about the end being tomorrow, but excited that it’s finally Christmas Eve!!! 🙂 Until tomorrow…well, later today in this part of the world. 😉
