tarte provided me with one of the nine sets available in their holiday collection, the Away Oui Go Portable Palette & Collectors Set ($48). It was an Ulta exclusive set that included an array of beauty items perfect for creating multiple beauty looks on-the-go.
The tarte Away Oui Go Portable Palette & Collectors Set includes the following:
I like that the set includes one of my favorite mascaras, the Lights, Camera, Lashes 4-in-1 mascara. This one is portable, and small enough to fit in your purse without taking up too much room.
The three Maracuja Lipglosses are beautiful, too. The colors, Paris, Cannes, and Nice, are named after popular Parisian cities that I hope to one day visit. Int he meantime, I guess I’ll have to settle with these glosses. They’re beautiful neutral shades that compliment any skintone.
Tell me, what do you think about the tarte Away Oui Go Portable Palette & Collectors Set? Is it something you would gift or would like to receive as a gift?

You’ve seen subscription box services all around now. There’s box services that are strictly beauty, food, health, home/lifestyle, or even jewelry focused. And then there’s boxes like the POPSUGAR Must Have Box subscription that are well-rounded, and offer all of the above for only $39.99/month. Subscription box services are, in my opinion, the best way, to get introduced to new brands and products.
Let us get down to business, and talk about what comes in the December 2014 POPSUGAR Must Have Box.
This lip lacquer arrived in a winter-ready shade, ‘Bordeau’. If you’re into darker berry or wine tones for your lips, then this is for you. It’s dark, but not so dark that it is vampy. Even though it applies like a gloss, at the end of the night, you’re left with a stain. If you’re not a fan of this shade, it’s also available in 19 other shades.
Who doesn’t love cupcakes? My daughter was happy to see this in the box. She can’t wait for us to make them. Scratch that, she wants to make them with my sister. Williams-Sonoma has amazing food items, so I’m sure once we do get around to baking these, they will be amazing.
This is a beautiful necklace with a long gold chain with a diamond-like pendant. As you can see from the photo, it has a lot of sparkle. It can be worn different ways – both short and long – by doubling the chain to adjust the length. It’s also a favorite of my three year old. She said, “Mommy, we can share this.”
Love, love, love this scarf! It’s gold with gold flecks. I can’t wait to wear it! It’s lightweight so I wouldn’t suggest wearing it as a winter scarf, but, it makes for a beautiful scarf to wear to accessorize an outfit. It’s neutral enough to be worn with just about any outfit.
This is a cute bowl to add to your decor. I can picture this on my vanity to house my little knickknacks. I can even use it as a candy dish. You see where this is going, right? This cute bowl can be used for pretty much anything, even if it means you just want it sitting pretty on a shelf somewhere.
Knot & Bow Gift Tags ($4)
This is the season for gifting. This year, we are doing DIY gifts, and these are perfect gift tags, to make our DIY gifts even more special.
The December 2015 POPSUGAR Must Have Box was a win for me. . It was a great mix of usable items for beauty lovers, those into fashion and luxury items, and home/lifestyle items. All of the items are things I will use, and can use with my family, especially the cupcake mix, which I will post about later on. The box contained $175.95 worth of items for just $39.99

A popular, yet timeless holiday lip most seen during the holidays that take place during the month of December, is a classic red lip. MUA Makeup Academy’s High Shine lipstick in ‘Poppy’ is a gorgeous red with a hint of shine. ‘Poppy’ can be turned up by pairing it with winged liner and falsies, or toned down by wearing it with a neutral face. Either way, you can’t ever go wrong with a red lip.
1. Exfoliate with a combination of sugar, olive oil, and a hint of honey.
3. Line your lips to prevent the lip product from bleeding
4. Apply the lip color, blot, and then apply another coat.
Now you have kissable, smooth, holiday lips!

At my age, it’s important for me to take my skincare more seriously, which is why I use serums daily. For over a month I’ve incorporated the Valentia Even Glow Serum into my skincare regimen, and like the results.
Valentia Even Glow Serum is a 20% Vitamin C serum that promises the following:
– Increases Glow and Radiance
– Evens skintone
– Absorbs rapidly
– Boosts collagen production
– Reduces Wrinkles and fine lines
Before using a product I always do a sniff test. To my delight, the Valentia Even Glow Serum has a light scent of oranges, which is rather refreshing. Actually, it’s unlike any other vitamin c serum that I’ve used in the past, too. Don’t worry, the scent dissipates quickly just like how easily it absorbs into the skin after application.
Overall, I’m happy with the Valentia Even Glow Serum Vitamin C 20%. I love the glow it provides after night usage, and the smooth texture of my skin. It’s paraben-free and contains organic ingredients. Also, the price is amazing! It’s only $35 on Amazon.com, which is half of the suggested retail. Plus, I’ve paid a whole lot more for other Vitamin C serums. If you’re looking for an affordable Vitamin C serum with all of the above benefits, check out the Valentia Even Glow Serum.
