Great Gifts: Laura Mercier Colour-To-Go Portable Palette.

Laura Mercier puts out the most stunning limited edition holiday items and this Colour-To-Go Portable Palette just so happens to be one of them.

This palette is like its name says, it is portable, but what it holds is incredible. This portable palette holds a trio of eyeshadows, a cake eyeliner, a blush, a bronzer and even a mini lip gloss, all tucked inside a palette that fits inside the palm of your hand. This palette is called Smoky Violet with coordinated shades in soft pinks and plums to create a beautiful smoky purple eye.

The shadows are finely milled and very pigmented. They apply with ease, blend well and last all day. I love the cake eye liner. It can be applied wet for a more dramatic look, or dry for a daytime look. The blush and bronzer pair and beautiful and natural. The wear all day nicely and would complement a variety of skin tones. The lip gloss is a natural nude peach gloss that would flatter everyone too.

The Laura Mercier Colour-To-Go Portable Palette sells for $50.00 at and Nordstrom.

Get On Your Way to Fabulous for the Holidays + a Giveaway!

I can't believe that Christmas will be here next week and then New Year's the week after. This month has just flown by. I know I am not holiday ready yet. Are you?  Well, I am here to offer a few tips, some product advice and a little help via my friends. You see, P&G and Walgreens are partnering with Tim Gunn and the People’s Choice Awards (PCA's) to help you get on your way to fabulous for the holidays.

You know Walgreens offers a ton of fabulous beauty products, and you know how easy it is to get to Walgreens, so picking up some of these great new beauties is easy too. Check out these new and exciting products that I am using to get #OnMyWay2Fab for the holidays:

Get On Your Way to Fabulous for the Holidays

COVERGIRL Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara
Flaunt the next big thing in lashes with Bombshell Volume by LashBlast Mascara! The brilliant two-step Bombshell Boost System combines extreme volume with an intensifying top coat for big, sexy bombshell lashes. It will last through long holiday parties and beyond with no clumping, flaking or smudging. I love the jet black wet lash look.

  • Step One: Apply the extreme volume basecoat. This coat thickens lashes with a huge brush and mega-volumizing formula; the result is volume that's even and clump free.
  • Step Two: Finish with the intensifying top coat. This seals the look with a dark, smooth finish in a thin layer, but provides enough dark color that you only need one coat.

Pantene Damage Detox Cream
With all of the overstyling I do throughout the year and wanting to look my best at the holidays, my hair needs help and fast. With just a few uses of the Pantene Weekly Rehab Creme, my hair is feeling soft and looking smooth. It is the first total hair system to reset damaged hair to look and feel like new.

Venus and Olay Sugarberry Exfoliate Razor
Soft, smooth, hair free skin is a holiday must. You know I am a fan the Venus & Olay razor and the Sugarberry scent is my favorite. It has been on a few of my lists this year. The brands specialized 5-blade technology exfoliates for surface skin renewal, while the scented Olay Moisture Bars helps to lock in skin’s moisture for less dryness. I have found that skin is softer longer in between shaving too.

Olay Regenerist Microsculpting Cream
Of course we all want to look as young and as best as we can, especially when seeing those that we only see during the holidays. Olay delivers those results and they deliver them fast with this Olay Regenerist Microsculpting Cream. This cream penetrates the skin rapidly to deliver anti-aging ingredients 10 layers deep into the skin’s surface. Just look at the results you'll see in a matter of days:

  • 1 Day: Reduces the appearance of lines, boosts hydration & brightness
  • 14 Days: Skin is noticeably firmer and skin elasticity is improved
  • 28 Days: Reverses the look of up to 10 years of wrinkles

Studio 35 Blender Brush
Makeup has to look its best during the holidays and the right tools are key. One perfect tool to create a flawless look is this blender brush that is basically a sponge on a brush handle. This foam tip utilizes an exclusive micro-pore formulation that will not absorb too much liquid makeup, while the infused vitamin E provides a superbly smooth surface for application. It helps to apply foundation flawlessly and evenly so makeup looks beautiful.

Finally, don't stress, get your beauty sleep, and do an extra hydrating mask if your skin feels a little extra dry. Also buy yourself a little present; I like chocolate. I know, it's not so good for my diet, but sometimes it just does the trick. I am loving the taste of the creamy German milk chocolate of the Delish Milk Chocolate Salted Caramel. This chocolate bar is a decadent treat made with real Black Forest milk combined with sweet caramel and a touch of salt that are guaranteed to ignite your senses. Yum!
