Cross Pens Star Wars collection – Stormtrooper

Darth Vader, 3PO, and a Stormtrooper can be your friends constant companion with one of CROSS’ new Gel Ink Pens. I wish my husband hadn’t been around when I opened my Stormtrooper Cross Pen package that was sent. It won’t be a surprise but he was so excited when he saw this that he claimed it and is loving using it.

You surely know what a wonderful brand and great gift a Cross Pen makes so why not be a little trendy with your gift giving. This pen not only glides along nicely without smudging, skipping or smearing but it’s using the ‘force’ for a one of a kind collectible writing instrument.

With three pens to choose from you can give the black Darth Vader, the white Stormtrooper or the great gold C3PO to three different people in your home and they wouldn’t fight over who owns what. The teens I know would really love the Darth Vader pen as would my 4 year old. An individual pen in a gift box is $45 and has a lifetime guarantee. If you want even more though check out this $75 gift set that comes with the pen and a companion Cross Pen journal.

In my opinion CROSS PENS are the go-to gift for graduation, holiday time and birthdays. This pen is so unique and will elicit a big thanks from the recipient. It’s a timeless gift with a twist and your Star Wars fan is going to remember you every time they use this gem.

Molton Brown wants you to give the gift of love

Molton Brown Blissful Bathing Gift Set

Molton Brown Blissful Bathing Gift Set

If you’ve ever been a recipient of a gift from me then you know that I’ve got two left hands when it comes to wrapping packages. I’m the person that gift bags were invented for since I’m a total klutz when it comes to wrapping. Sometimes though a gift needs to be wrapped beautifully and that’s one of the reasons I’m now a fan of Molton Brown‘s holiday gift sets. They come in beautiful packaging, all ready to attach a card and give to someone you care about. Molton Brown carries these items in all price ranges so you really could have a “one stop” shopping day and be pleased about everything you purchased.

I could go on and on but instead I’ll show you how great the Molton Brown Holiday Body Wash Set for Her ($75) that I was sent is.

Inside the perfectly wrapped box you’ll find 3 full size Body Washes (300 ml/10 fl oz) that Molton Brown is known for. There are many products in the Molton Brown line but from my experience the body washes/shower gels are the most enjoyed. This great gift set contains Pink Pepperpod Body Wash, Blossoming Honeysuckle & White Tea Bath & Body Wash, and Ylang-Ylang Body Wash.

Molton Brown Blissful Bathing Gift Set for her

This set can be broken up into 3 separate gifts if you prefer. If you know that someone you are gifting is passionate then gift the Pink Pepperpod Body Wash. If they are tranquil or need some serenity in their lives then the Honeysuckle and White Tea Bath & Shower Gel will be welcomed into their lives. For that certain someone who likes a spicier fragrance then Ylang-Ylang Body Wash is perfect for their life. For me, gifting this as a whole would save me from wrapping so that I can get on with other important parts of the holiday – like eating!

There are so many impressive gift items from Molton Brown that you won’t have trouble finding items that are perfect no matter your budget. Which Molton Brown fragrance is the one you’re most attracted to? — Marcia

The 6 piece Heavenly Luxe holiday brush set by IT Cosmetics is stocking stuffer ready

It Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Brush Set with Travel Case

It Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Brush Set with Travel Case

If you are anything like me then holiday shopping is very much on your mind. IT Cosmetics has come to the rescue with 4 different sets that will make anyone on your list very happy. I was sent the Heavenly Luxe 6 piece Brush Set and it’s packaged and ready for beautiful gift giving.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Holiday Brush Set

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe Holiday Brush Set

Pretty as a picture and ready to stick under a tree or in a stocking. IT Cosmetics brushes are ones I love. If you are a blog reader then you hear rave after rave for IT’s brushes. This set is a great beginner’s kit. The price is only $39.50 for 6 brushes and a great travel case. That’s pretty amazing. What you’ll find inside is a powder brush, flat foundation brush, eyebrow brush and 3 eye brushes in a variety of sizes. (sold only on IT Cosmetics)

Let’s start with the great case that houses these 6 brushes. It’s very sturdy and luxe. Since IT Cosmetics is a cruelty free company the case only looks and feels like leather but you’d never know it wasn’t.

IT Cosmetics LE Heavenly Luxe Brush Set case

The two best brushes in the set for my needs are the face brushes. The Heavenly Luxe Travel Flat Foundation Brush is a great flat brush for foundation. It can also be used for concealer for larger areas of concern. The Heavenly Luxe Powder/Blush brush is one of the soft and efficient brushes that IT Cosmetics is known for. You’ll love the feel of this on your face.

IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe powder/blush brush and foundation brush

I also really like the Heavenly Luxe Travel Flat Concealer Brush since it’s perfect for concealer but also for eyeshadow. It’s a good base brush eyeshadow placement. I particularly like it to lay down color all over or just on my lid. The other brush that gets my okay is the No Tug® Eyeliner & Brow Brush with Spooly. I am now enthralled with brow brushes and find them a necessity. I love having this travel size that has everything I need in one.

The two eyeshadow brushes are the reason I said the kit was better for beginners. The brushes are similar except for size. They are full and loose. The No Tug® Travel Allover Eyeshadow Brush is the larger of the two and is the one I’ve used for blending. The No Tug® Travel Crease Brush is smaller but not by that much. I think it’s a little too loose as a crease brush but it works especially if you like a softer look on your eyes.

While they call these brushes travel brushes, all but the eyebrow brush are really full size. They’d be good for both travel and home use.

I think all 4 sets that Ulta has for the holidays are wonderful for yourself or as gifts. The one I’m most anxious to get is the Naturally Pretty Must Haves with a palette of 6 brand new matte shadows and a new transforming pearl shade in a signature Hello Light® shade. As if it could get any better, it contains the wonderful Hello Lashes® Mascara Deluxe Mini. This set is sold at both Ulta and IT Cosmetics.

While you are making your list be sure to include IT Cosmetics’ Limited Edition Holiday Sets but remember the words “limited edition” because when they are gone, they’re gone. Don’t be sorry!  — Marcia

Pixi Beauty has wallet friendly, beautiful LE holiday gift sets

This is the season that our wallets really start hurting. Everyone is bringing out gift sets that are too fabulous to ignore. Some of the ones we’ve shown already (or will be showing) are for those times when we can splurge. Most of our needs, wants, and gifts need to be more affordable so we don’t go into debt.

Pixi Beauty (Pixi by Petra) is in the latter category. Fabulous sets for yourself or for gifts. Holiday sets that you can put on a wishlist without feeling guilty. Perfect stocking stuffers and grab bag items can be bought for $12 to $24 from Pixi.

The hottest thing this year is contouring, highlighting and strobing as you no doubt know from reading magazines and blogs. Pixi’s Natural Contour Kit is all that and more! 4 facial shades and 8 eyeshadows can be mixed or matched for affordable beauty ($24).

The other trend this year is matte lipsticks. As beautiful as they are, they aren’t that easy to wear. I’ve reviewed two of Pixi’s Mattelustre Lipsticks and found them very comfortable and not drying. I can’t wear a true matte for more than an hour before I feel uncomfortable. That isn’t my reaction with Mattelustre since they feel creamy on my lips and don’t accentuate fine lines. The good news is that you can try them, or gift them, in a limited edition set called Mini Mattelustre Lipstick Quartette and it’s only $12. The shades are from their regular collection: Honey Bare, Petal Pink, Rose Naturelle and Bitten Rose.

Then there are the very popular and incredible Silky Eye Pencils. These were the first items I ever bought from Pixi since the raves were amazing and rightly so. Now for only $18 there’s the Mini Endless Silky Eye Pen Quartette for this holiday.

I was sent this set to test out and I’ve been enjoying it immensely. I never, ever go without eyeliner when I’m going somewhere. I just don’t look like myself if I leave it off. It’s a need, not a want. But you will want this set because it gives you the opportunity to try out their phenomenal pencils in 4 great colors.

This giftable box holds 4 liners that will work with whatever you wear. Three of the shades are from their collection and one shade is a new one created just for this LE gift set: BlackNoir, BlackCocoa, DeepPlum and SlateGrey (the limited edition shade).

BlackNoir, BlackCocoa, DeepPlum and SlateGrey.

These are the silkiest pencils, you can smudge them if you want without a problem but once they set, they SET. You won’t find the colors migrating under your eyes during the day but you will find your eyeliner on after the work day is over.

Pixi Mini Endless Silky Eye Pen Quartette

Even though I’ve only tried this eyeliner kit out of the three kits, I have no problem recommending any and all of these three holiday sets. I’ve worked with Pixi Beauty often enough and wear so many of their products that I’m confident in these. They are ready to go for gift giving and for your merry self too. Don’t be late to the party!

 PUR MINERALS has a limited edition DECK THE HALLS set right now that you absolutely don’t want to miss. This was sent for testing and I’m in love with it and will most likely pick up another one. The price is ab fab at $12 and the products are just as fabulous.

Inside the DECK THE EYES SET you’ll find a deluxe size Big Look Mascara. A full size is .17 oz (and $20) while this one is only slightly smaller at .12 oz. You’ll also get a liquid eyeliner that is exclusive to the set and is full size.

BIG LOOK MASCARA is fabulous on if you love to lengthen and define. It is totally non-clumping. I just get long, lush looking eyelashes with this.

To make this mascara even better, it’s formulated with Argan Oil. So while you are looking great you are conditioning your lashes at the same time. It’s a beautiful dewy look and it does NOT smudge. The last thing you need is smudging, only a raccoon looks good like that. This is the type of mascara that looks good on a daily basis yet you can build it up for some extra oomph. I’m so happy to have discovered this.

The surprise in Deck the Eyes for me is this Liquid Precision Eyeliner in Black. Pur Minerals doesn’t have a liquid eyeliner in their regular line-up so this is the only place you can get it for now.

This Precision Liquid Eyeliner is water resistant. I need an eye makeup remover to cleanse. I love the point since I can get it as thin as I want or I can use it for a more pronounced eyeliner.

I mostly use liquid eyeliner these days and this one is finding its way into the daily rotation. It’s a true winner.
