Chanel Levres Scintillantes Glossimer Swatches

Chanel 297 Sweet Beige, 83 Magnifique, 119 Wild Rose, 357 Mystery, 03 Glaze, 169 Jalousie, 182 Tocade Glossimer Lip Glass

There comes a time in every makeup junkie’s life where she knows it’s time to reorganize and destash all her precious goodies. I’m currently at that point. Le sigh. The cleaning and reorganizing part isn’t all that fun. However, rediscovering all of the lost goodies long forgotten is way too much fun.

Just the other day I stumbled across some of my Chanel Glossimers that I’ve been collecting here and there for years now. Like most of my glosses, I’d buy a couple, wear them for a week or two and then they disappear for months on end. Now that I’ve dug them back up I can’t seem to stop playing with them because they’re oh so pretty.

A Warm Chocolate Look for Fall

Warm Chocolate Look for Fall

Ahh, fall. You gotta love it. The crisp, cool breeze in the air. Yellow, orange and red leaves cover the ground. And all those yummy shades of bronze and brown can be seen everywhere — making me think of chocolate. Like a creamy hot chocolate loaded with those tiny marshmallows and lots of whipped cream. So delicious!

The warm hues of fall and thoughts of hot chocolate makes me feel all fuzzy inside so I decided to whip up a chocolate inspired look for fall using my deliciously sweet Too Faced Chocolate Bar Palettes and a few of my current faves.

Completely Remove the Day by Double Cleansing

Lancome Galatee Confort Milky Cream Cleanser, Bobbi Brown Soothing Cleansing Oil, Double Cleanse

Ahhh removing your makeup. It’s so bittersweet. You have to wipe away that precious slay you crafted yet you finally get to touch your face and relax. The most important goal of removing your makeup though is to keep your skin clean, clear and healthy so it looks good under all your favorite products. Not covered in breakouts and such because your pores are clogged. That’s no good!

However, completely removing your makeup can be easier said that done sometimes. Especially if you’re a makeup junkie who likes to rock a full face. Getting off all of the foundation, waterproof eye makeup, concealer and indestructible liquid lipsticks can be tricky but certainly not impossible. Thanks to Danielle, The Style & Beauty Doctor, I’ve been double cleansing to thoroughly remove my makeup and it works like a charm — no matter how much cake I’m wearing.

I don’t know about you, but this holiday season is going to kill me. It seems as if I want a thing or two (or three) from every collection. Or worse, I want every palette I see. I’ve recently forced myself to start wearing eyeshadow again and let’s just say I’ve got the fever for it now. The latest palette to hit my wish list is the Anastasia Beverly Hills Self Made Palette that’s new and limited edition for the holiday season. It features 14 shades including:
