Clarins Barocco Colour Collection.

This party perfect collection from Clarins is a sultry stunner. The gold and shimmer - dark eyes and velvety lips are enviable. The Barocco Holiday Colour Collection is one of my favorites this year.

The collection is inspired by the dramatic, daring and sensual style of the baroque period. From luxurious draperies to rich golds - this historical time was one of excess, glamour and mystery.  The mystery and beauty is revealed as soon as you open the gorgeous packaging, embossed with the Barocco motif.


The collection includes:


Barocco Shimmering Gold Powder for Face and Décolleté
An elegant black and gold powder box holds little nuggets dusted with golden pearl. With a sweep of the puff, they release a fine powder to beautifully enhance the skin with sparkling reflections.

Barocco Face Palette
A soft, light compact powder with a scroll motif in peachy-pink and sandy-beige. The combination of the two shades is perfect for illuminating the face or adding matte touches to the complexion.

Barocco Eye Colour Trio
A trio of shades that create the perfect smoky eye for day and night with these ultra-fine textures that can be combined, layered or blended together for perfect holiday makeup. Create a wash of bronze to enhance the eyes, black to define the eyelids and gold to catch the light and brighten the inner corners. 

Barocco Rouge Prodige
The purple velvet drapes of the Baroque period are the inspiration for the colour of this lipstick. The rich formula combines long-hold colour, extreme shine and total comfort.
Check out the Barocco Colour Collection now online, or at your favorite Clarins counter.

Holiday Picks from Philosophy.

I think that my love for Philosophy continues to grow each year. No one puts out the Holiday sets like Philosophy. They get better and better each year.

Every woman on my gift list gets a little something from Philosophy. If it is not a full sized set, it may be a mini shower gel or lip shine tied onto a package.  Every year, my giftees are always thrilled.

As I said, Philosophy has a huge variety of products and sets just for the holiday's. They even have an entire section of their website dedicated to Holiday, so you need to check that out to see everything they have.  The following list of products are just the Holiday items I have purchased from Philosophy this year, to give - and, yes, indulge in myself.


Tabletop Spinning Cosmetic Organizer by Lori Greiner.

You have no idea how many pretty trays, jars and drawers that I have all over my makeup counter to just keep a handle on the products I am currently using. As I change out my makeup so often (it is my job, you know), I usually wind up with much more just sitting on the counter as I simply have no where to put it. Then I was introduced to this genius organizational product from organizational and QVC guru Lori Greiner.

The Ultimate Cosmetic Organizer - holds over 100 items!

This Tabletop Spinning Cosmetic Organizer is just what I need. In reality, I could probably use four of them, one for each season - alas, one will do.

This tabletop organizer holds over 100 pieces of your everyday beauty essentials, arranging them in specially designed compartments for ultimate efficiency. What's more, it spins so you can access your skin care, colored cosmetics, or other grooming supplies.

This Cosmetic Organizer is the perfect gift for anyone who needs to de-clutter their makeup or bathroom counter. When my daughter saw this one that I received, she promptly took it from me as it was, as she said,  "exactly what I needed!".  Not to worry, as this amazing invention is just $24.96, I ordered myself another one and also bought one for my sister, who is in desperate need of this beauty too.

QVC is the only place where you can get the Tabletop Spinning Cosmetic Organizer, so that is where you will want to shop.
