L’Occitane Pure Shea Butter Tin Set – QVC Holidays!

I’m one of those that starts their Christmas shopping ridiculously early. Actually holiday shopping is one of my favorite aspects of the season, as potentially shallow as that sounds let me just mention that gift giving is one of my love languages – it’s how I like to show my friends and family I care. And ever since I was a little girl one of my favorite places for gift ideas was QVC. I know it sounds kind of funny but when I was little I used to window shop on the QVC channel, dreaming of the day that I would be older and could buy everything I wanted for the people I loved. Now that I am older, I’m happy to say I still rely on QVC for gift giving – except now I do a little less dreaming and a little more shopping, lol!

One of my favorite of QVC’s holiday offerings  is their easy-to-regift items. If you’re like me, you probably have loads of people on your list, so items like this L’Occitane Pure Shea Butter Set of 5 tins is perfect!

I’ve been a fan of L’Occitane since I discovered them in my mom’s beauty stash way back in high school. Their shea is super luxurious and are a must-have beauty multi-purpose product. I use it to hydrate my hands (especially in the cold winter months), cuticles, feet – most places that suffer from dryness and could use a pick me up. I’ve also used it to tame fly-ways while on the go. Also, these tins are not only unisex, but they’re also travel friendly too!

Vincent Longo Pearl X Eyeshadow in Code 6 Pink Review

I was introduced to the joys of marbled eyeshadows a few years ago, and while I currently don’t own too many of them, for a few months I’ve been obsessed with this one from Vincent Longo. The Pearl X Eyeshadows come in five different shades, the one I own is Code 6 Pink.

Vincent Longo, Beauty Blogger, Eyeshadow, Review

Admittedly, when I first received it I was a little scared about the grey shade in there. I have light skin with warm undertones and grey has always washed me out. It’s a color that I’ve virtually eliminated from my wardrobe so I wasn’t overly excited to put it on my face. Luckily, I was dead wrong about the grey in this eyeshadow.

When mixed together the eyeshadow is a lovely shimmery pale lavender pink color. If you have brown eyes you will absolutely love this eyeshadow – it really sets off my brown eyes, which a quality not found in many eyeshadows IMHO.

Vincent Longo, Beauty Blogger, Eyeshadow, Review

The swatch above is pretty true to life – the grey and blue give depth to the pink, so it goes from being a basic shadow to one with more depth. The texture is pretty silky, and the color payoff is off the charts.

Each Vincent Longo Pearl X Eyeshadow runs about $25, which is more on the pricey side, but considering the color payoff and quality of the product, and the fact that it’s one of those products that will last forever, if you can, I think it’s a splurge worth making. You can pick it up on the Vincent Longo site, here.
