I think everyone can benefit from using an oil and or serum on their face especially during the winter. I have combination skin, but in the winter months my dry skin is amplified. These 2 products have been my go to already I love trying out new oils so please let me know your favorites.  

Along with the harsh winter making my skin dry, I have dry cracked lips. It is not an attractive look, so I try to always be prepared with chapstick. However, a lot of the stuff you use is just a lot of fragrance and other ingredients that actually will dry your lips out. Hence keeps you buying more, so I love this bite beauty lip mask, and scrub. I can use this scrub which is gentle and refreshing on my lips. Then I can put the lip mask on and go to bed, knowing I will awake to smoochable lips heh.

I picked the Tarte Tartelette palette because it's a beautiful palette (swatches will be up this week on the blog). It has amazing color payoff, you can get the perfect day to night look with just this palette. Very subtle and not over the top, which is a great every day palette. It has just quickly became a go to palette. I included the MAC pigment set from the Holidays because I just forgot how much I love MAC pigments until getting these sets at Christmas time. I don't know if you can still buy the sets, but I suggest you just go buy all the sparkly MAC pigments you can find heh. Glitter pigments make the world go round!

The last two staples I chose are the Pixi polish in Guilded Garnet, because who doesn't love a dark nail for the winter. I do love it also because it's a long lasting polish and has a beautiful finish as well. I adore all Pixi polishes, so find a shade you like and that makes these gloomy days a little better.The Monoi Tiki Tahiti Oil in Vanilla was a Spring 2014 favorite of mine. However, I am using it more and more during this winter. It smells amazing it is just coconut oil with some fragrance and that's it. Be prepared to not only smell amazing, but it is also an oil so it's moisturizing. It turns to an oil over 69° if it's cold where you store it, sit it somewhere warm so you can use it hehe. 

Some products were PR Samples sent for review consideration.

  10. Okay. I think seeing this has convinced me to get the Tartelette palette. It seems everyone is loving it! I have looked at getting it for the past week and hesitated due to my palette collection, but this makes me so want to get it. I think the MAC holiday kits are a great deal considering what you get! Thanks so much for linking up this post for this week's Best in the Blogosphere link party! Hope to see you back again next week :)
