Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse - Luxury Body Oil - Reveiw

Dry Oil Huile Prodigieuse® Multi-usage Skin care - Nourishes, repairs and Softens
(Face, Body and Hair)

Huile Prodigieuse is France's leading beauty oil. This multi-usage dry oil, made using six Precious Plant Oils (Macadamia, Hazelnut, Borage, Sweet Almond, Camellia and St. John's Wort), nourishes, repairs and softens skin and hair. It has a unique dry oil texture and a captivating fragrance.

Nuxe is a French brand. French pharmacy brands have been around forever, but have become very popular in last few years within the beauty community. They offer highly effective, no nonsense skincare and hair care products at a reasonable price. The composition of products are a clever blend of science and cosmetology.
I have used products from brands like Bioderma, La Roche-Posay, Vichy, Eucerin etc to name a few. I must admit, few of them have reached the holy grail status for me in my skincare routine.

I love oils. Period. Be it for face, body or hair. Every time I walk by the skincare section at Target, I spray the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse and I just love the way it smells. Unfortunately, I cannot pronounce the word Huile Prodigieuse. So lets just call it NUXE oil.

I placed my order online at Nuxe.com and their service is amazing. Fast shipping, excellent packaging.

Color: Pale Yellow (in bottle) but colorless when applied.

Texture and Consistency: Light, non sticky, thin oil

Scent: This smells divine! I don't know what it smells like, but the scent is excellent. Very soothing and relaxing.

Application: I apply it on my body after shower in place of body lotion. I spray few spritz at first, then spread it all over my body. 

Feel and Effect on the skin: The product is absorbed completely and very quickly. This is a dry oil, so it is very light weight and almost disappears. If I go heavy with the quantity, the do see some shiny oil. The skin feels soft, moisturized and supple and it stays that way for good amount of time. I don't need to re-apply anytime soon. The oil does not leaves any stain on clothes. I have used it on my hair to tame the frizzes, and it works. I don't use it often for the hair though.

Packaging: I have a love hate relationship with the packaging. The bottle is made of glass and has a nozzle, like fragrance bottle. It spritz fine mist of oil and does not clogs. The shape of the bottle is beautiful to look, but it gets difficult to hold and use once the hands get slippery and oily. I would have preferred a cylindrical shaped bottle. Mine is a limited edition bottle, so it has a different picture on it. 

Verdict: I love this oil. The moisturizing effect without getting too greasy or oily can be achieved by other oils like the Caudalie Divine Oil or the L'Occitane Body & Hair Fabulous Oil but it is the scent, the fragrance of this oil that is top notch and makes me choose the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse over any of the other oils that I have tried. I have also tried the Clarins Body Treatment oil and L'Occitane Almond Smoothing and Beautifying Supple Skin Oil, but these are not very light weight like the dry oils above. I love these regular oils too. Neutrogena Body Oil is an all time drugstore favorite oil of mine. It is easily available and very affordable.

Beauty Cravings - New in Beauty/Skincare


There are so many new releases for spring, both in makeup and Skincare. I get to know about these as I surf the net and the mails that the companies send. Me being a skincare junkie, skincare products attract me the most. 

Charlotte Tilbury's Magic Cream is phenomenal and my absolute favorite. I am most excited to try the two new additions to her Magic line. The Magic Night Cream and Magic Rescue Eye Cream. These are available individually at Nordstrom. The Magic Skin Triology can be purchased as a set on her website. 

Glamglow added a new peel-off mask face mask called Gravity mud Firming Treatment. I have tried all their masks. Some of them are really good, while some have been OK types for me. I personally would love to get a sample or a deluxe sized version of this. 

FAB or First Aid Beauty is a very clean and basic brand of skincare. I like their products. They don't promise over night miracles, but they work. The simplicity of the brand is what I love the most. They work so well for sensitive skin. The brand already has an Ultra Repair Lip Therapy in tube. I like it. It is nothing fancy, but nice. I want to try this new Ultra Repair Intensive Lip Balm. The ingredients are simple like Honey, Oatmeal and other basic stuff. 

Earlier I used to use only the Body Butters and Lip Butters from The Body Shop, but since more than a year I have been using their masks and serums and they are pretty impressive. Again, not overnight miracles but they have good skincare stuff. Their Oils of Life are beautiful skincare products and I have just used samples so far. The Body Shop Drops of Youth Youth Essence-Lotion is a new product that will be released around January and it is a new addition to their Drops of Youth line range of products.

L'Occitane, a brand known for their wonderful skincare, bath and body products. I love many of their products, especially the Almond range and the Shea Butter one. Their new product is a Shea Face Soothing Fluid that is light weight and contains Shea Butter. There is a Shea Face Comforting Oil as well. Pretty cool!

When it comes to Primers, Smashbox is always first with new stuff. I love their primers, primer water that came out last year, but I got to try recently. I am super excited to hear the brand coming out with a new product Photo finish primer oil. Now, me and Oil always gel. I am sure I will love this one.

Josie Maran's Argan Oil is a holy grail. I like the texture and consistency of their whipped Argan Oil Body Butter. I don't love all the scents. The Josie Maran whipped Argan Oil face butter is new in her line. Me would love to try.

Lancôme Visionnaire Nuit Beauty Sleep Perfector is a gel-to-oil nighttime moisturizer. It nourishes the skin and promises smoother, softer and bouncy skin. Who wouldn't want that?

Ole Henriksen is a brand that I have not had much luck with. Their scent puts me off. The new Truth Sugar Glow™ Polishing Mask sounds promising and I would like to give it a try. 

Most of these skincare stuff are pricey and I would always want to try these in their smaller sizes. Many of the above brands usually come up with kits/sets of their products and that is how I personally prefer. I don't like to return products, so it would be a huge waste buying something costing close to $100 and then returning it after few uses. 

Is there anything specific new skincare product that you are excited to try?

Beauty Buys/Haul - May Coop, Too Faced, Lorac, Stila

'BEAUTY BUYS' is just another term coined for the infamous 'HAUL'. It is the list of things I buy, try and the ones you will hear me 'yak', 'blab', 'review' about in next few posts!!! Call this a 'Preview'..

This is part 2 of the final haul for the year.

May Coop is a brand that I had never heard of. There is only one product under this brand at Sephora. It is the Raw Sauce. A very unique name for a product. This alone generated curiosity enough to try at least a small bottle. The packaging is nice and heavy.

After my disastrous experience with the NARS Light reflecting Pressed setting powder, I am on this hunt to find 'the one' that works for me. The Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders are my absolute favorite and I use them as 'finishing powders' or 'concealer setting powder'. I need something that would help me set make up and also blot the oil around my nose if needed during the summers. I chose the Too faced Primed and Powerless pressed powder. The product itself looks very translucent, so I think it should work without leaving an ashy cast. I have also picked the Charlotte Tilbury 'Air Brush Flawless Finish' Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder. I shared it in my last post. So if any of these work well, I am good for many many years. 

Laura Mercier's secret Brightening powder for the under eyes is my holy grail and I have high hopes with this Translucent Loose Setting Powder to set make up as well. This is a loose powder. 

I don't need palettes. I use the same boring neutrals whenever I do my eye makeup. One of my favorite look is a light colored eye shadow that has some sheen all over the lid, with eyeliner. Done. The only colors I ever use is deep, dark blue, green or purple as eyeliner. I am not very artistic when it comes to eye shadow.

Lorac 'PRO' Matte Palette is easy, portable and has my kind of colors (neutrals). I also picked Stila Soul Palette. It has some beautiful shimmery shades, a huge mirror and was only $29 during those fun day sales at Ulta. I honestly didn't 'need' any of these. I just wanted to own them. 

I wanted to give the Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer/ Neutralizer and the Maybelline Dream Lumi touch Highlighting concealer a try. I love my NARS Radiant creamy concealer, but wanted to try some others. I have recently picked the Urban Decay Naked Skin weightless concealer and I must say it is beautiful!


As I type this post saying this is my last haul for the year, but just two days back I picked few more things on my trip to Florida and believe me I had a good excuse this time. I shared a few pictures on Instagram. 

These are some of the products that I picked and I am excited to try them and share my experience. None of these are new (I hardly have latest releases on this blog), but they are new for me and I hope to enjoy using and reviewing these soon.

Fresh Sugar Shine Lip Treatment - Review


Fresh Sugar Shine Lip Treatment is a high-shine lip treatment that moisturizes, promotes suppleness, and improves lip definition. 

It works to promote suppleness and improve the definition of the lip area while preserving moisture for up to six hours. The high-shine treatment enhances the natural color of the lips while offering essential nourishment. It can be worn alone or on top of your favorite Sugar Tinted Lip Treatment for smooth, youthful-looking lips. 

Formulated WITHOUT: - Parabens - Sulfates - Phthalates


Color: Clear. In tube it looks pale pink, but on lips it is clear.

Texture and Consistency: Not too thick, light weight, slightly sticky, non goopy

Application: I apply it on its own as a lip treatment or over any lipstick like a lip gloss.

Scent: Sugar lemon scent. Very similar to the Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment.


Feel and Effect on Lips: It feels very light on the lips. I do not find it too sticky or goopy. The lips feel hydrated and appear shiny, not sparkly. The gloss/treatment is not a wet looking gloss. I did notice my lips appeared plump without the tingling. It might be optical illusion due to the high shine. The plump effect did not last very long though. There was no peeling of the lips later on and the gloss lasted 3 hours of eating and drinking and talking. 


Packaging: It comes in a tube with a doe foot applicator. A normal shaped doe foot applicator. No curves or loops. Pretty standard.


Verdict: This is a nice, handy tube. I like the way it nourishes and conditions, though I didn't notice any smoothing of the wrinkles on lips. It is not too sticky or goopy and it feels nice and comfortable on the lips. It is not a glossy, wet looking product. The product itself is not a unique one and not a must-have in my opinion. I have the clear one and similar conditioning effect can be achieved by using Fresh Sugar Advanced Therapy Lip Treatment, minus the shine. Fresh Sugar Shine Lip Treatment comes in 6 colors and it would be a better choice if light tint is expected along with the treatment.

A good product, but not my absolute favorite, because it is not unique.

Beauty Buys/Haul - Tatcha, Urban Decay, It Cosmetics, Alterna


'BEAUTY BUYS' is just another term coined for the infamous 'HAUL'. It is the list of things I buy, try and the ones you will hear me 'yak', 'blab', 'review' about in next few posts!!! Call this a 'Preview'..

This is probably last haul for this year. The deals and discounts are too tempting to pass.

I picked the Urban Decay Naked Skin concealer. NARS concealers have been my favorites since I started using them, but as I was playing around with the testers at store, I found this was way more light weight than the NARS. I had to try one. I picked the shade Medium Dark Warm


Tatcha is a Japanese skincare brand and I had used few samples before. This time I ordered few products from their website. They carry travel size products of their best sellers and I find it a great way to try these before buying the full size. It is a pretty pricey brand though.


I am super excited to try these products, especially the mist and the beauty Oil. These are available at Sephora too. 


I have never tried anything from IT cosmetics and Ulta has a huge display of this brand. I picked out two face products and a brush to go with it. The color selection for face products is pretty good. I picked a Your Skin But Better CC Cream with SPF 50+ in shade Tan, I find this to be a little dark for me, but them medium appeared light, I also picked the Celebration Foundation Illumination in shade Tan again and a Heavenly Luxe Flat Top Buffing Foundation Brush #6 to go with it. This is one the softest brush I own, but it is a very pricey brush.



Alterna is my favorite hair care brand. I love their Caviar range the most and stock up the largest size of shampoo and conditioner. The Caviar Anti-Aging Rapid Repair Spray and Caviar Anti-Aging Replenishing Moisture Milk were two products that caught my eye while browsing the brand. I am excited to try these new goodies on my hair.



This Urban Decay Smoked Palette is a discontinued product and I had missed buying it. I found this at Nordstrom Rack for $20 and it was too good a deal to pass. I love the blue, green and purple in this palette. It comes with a full size Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil which is an absolute favorite. 


Lastly I got way to many freebies when ordering online on Ulta and Sephora and above few are some cool ones I am excited to try. These are very generous sized deluxe sample. 

I will be posting a part two of this last haul, because the post is getting picture heavy and my poor blog page will have problem loading. 



Check out part two here.

Dazzling Gifts - Holiday Gift Guide/Gift Ideas (Part 2)


This is part 2 of Holiday Gift Guide. I know many many and many people who are still shopping (including me) and I have tried to narrow this selection down to things that are still available at stores that are pretty much in every other mall if not every mall. 

Tech and music accessories are hot items. A headphone is something that everyone uses and from high end Bose to basic funky headphone, the choices are endless. This fancy rose gold Frends with Benefits 'Layla' Headphones look very chic. Portable battery is another practical and useful accessory that makes good gift. Available easily at Best Buy or Target. Want to gift a fancier one, this Kate Spade New York slim portable charger is a good one.

A wristlet, card holder or a coin pouch that is multi tasking like securing phone, carrying cash etc is a good gift too. This MICHAEL Michael Kors Card Holder iPhone 6 & 6s Casekate spade new york 'cedar street' iPhone 6 leather wristlet are some good options and they come in eye catching colors. 

Stationary, desk decors and journals are full proof gift products. Fancier the better. Barnes and Noble carries many of these Jonathan Adler Journals, Kate Spade Polka dot Pencil pouch set and fun as well functional sticky notes, note pads etc from Knock Knock. I love these Knock Knock stuff. 

Purse charms appeal a lot to more younger crowds. I personally am not a fan of fuzzy thing hanging from my bag, but a friend's daughter was all over this MICHAEL Michael Kors 'XL' Genuine Fox Fur Bag Charm. This MINIMERGENCY® - Emoji' Kit by Pinch Provisions is a good stocking stuffer and is a great way to carry some useful stuff in bag for emergencies. Pretty neat. 

Makeup Bags and Pouches are my personal favorite. There are tons to choose from, but this one from Charlotte Tilbury is very lovely. 

Bath and Spa products make great hostess gifts. Luxurious product like this set from Bath and Body works come beautifully packed in a box. The stress relief set from same store is pure bliss. These Shea Socks are the best things ever made for feet. Available at Bath and Body Works, these socks are very affordable and comfortable. 

Hand Creams and lip balms make very affordable stocking stuffers and an extra one or two never hurts. So repeats are always welcome. Some hand creams that I love and have tried are these L'Occitane 'Beautiful Hands' Set and Crabtree & Evelyn 'Hand Therapy' Tin. These are high quality, non greasy super hydrating hand creams. They smell wonderful too. The packaging is cute and ready to gift. These Peter Max for Kiehl's 'Lip Balm Giftables' Set and Jack Black 'The Balm Squad' Collection are two absolutely wonderful lip balm sets. Both the balms are excellent in quality. These kits can be split and re-packed to make a cute lip balm and hand cream kit. All you need is a little packing creativity.

Food is another category that makes good gift. This hot chocolate 'Holiday Sipping kit' gift set from ticket chocolate is a lovely presentation. Love the mug too. 


Lastly there is this little grouping of very obvious but always the best and most loved category of gifts. This particular list has selection of everything that I would want to own.

Purse. A good well made purse is always an addition. There are tons of designs, shapes and sizes to choose from. Collections are always built slowly. So personally, I would welcome any design. This Michael Kors 'Jet Set - Large Phone' Saffiano Leather Crossbody Bag is a wonderful one and it is good size too. 

Watch. I see time on my phone, but I never leave the house without a watch. It is more like a piece of jewelry for me. This Jord Wood watch from their Cora series is very unique. I own a different model of wood watch from the ELY series (read my review here). This was the only watch I wore all summer and I got many compliments on it. The above model is probably one the most beautiful and unique combination of color for a watch.

Scarf. A classic. A staple. There is never anything called as 'too many scarves'. I was looking for a blue/red combination, so I chose this model, but literally here you can find tons of options! Anything that you love would fit the bill.

Sunglasses. These are good gifts, but sometimes tricky to buy. I would always gift this one with a gift receipt. Personally, I want this Dior 'So Real' 48mm Sunglasses. It is crazy expensive. But hey! we are making a list here... Right?

Lastly, Bracelets, Bangles, Earrings and Neck pieces both delicate as well as chunky make great gifts. I personally love these bangles from Alex and Ani. They make great layering pieces. 

These were my picks for Holiday Gifting. Some of these I already have got in the past and some of these I would really love to own. 

Hope this was of some use. Read Part 1 here.

Have fun Shopping!

Dazzling Gifts - Holiday Gift Guide/Gift Ideas (Part 1)

Giving gifts as well as receiving them!! Pure Joy! I find everything around the Holiday season worth gifting. Simple chocolates to cozy socks come packaged beautifully.
There are tons of gift guides on the internet and depending on the age group alone it would take probably months of searching to make a gift guide collage. I personally have selected things that I already have and get compliments on every time or I would love to get them for myself. Also as the blog focuses more on Beauty, Accessory etc, I try to stick to the items that cater to the gals and not kids or men in your life.

My first choice for gifting is Books and Prints for framing. Even if someone is not an avid reader, coffee table books, cook books make good gift. 


Some other favorites not pictured here.


Prints are one of those easy wall decor that can dress up any wall. These prints can be gifted all by themselves or can be framed, depending on the budget.

I love prints from Made by Girl. You can find them here. Some beautiful prints can be found here as well. 

Candles are good gifts, but difficult and very personal, just like fragrance. You never know what the other person prefers. One rule that I follow while gifting candles is I choose fancy containers that hold these candles. So if the scent is not awesome, at least the container can double up as a decor piece.

Pineapple shaped candle is from Anthropologie, and you can find similar here too. Kate Spade striped and Polka dotted Candles are beautiful. Jonathan Adler Muse Candle and Gold Mid Century metallic scented Candle make wonderful decor pieces. Diptyque and Jo Malone candles are top notch when it comes to fragrance but they are pricey. Nest Candles are more affordable than the previous two.


Decorative Objects, Vase, Book ends all make great gifts. From Pier one imports to Home Goods, they are easy to find. Barnes and Noble carries good bookends too. I personally selected a few that caught my eye while browsing the net. 


Trays and mugs are always a hit. No matter how many mugs and trays one has, there is always room for additional new one. The Jonathan Adler zebra tray is always appreciated by anyone visiting and it makes a great conversation starter piece. 
Starbucks has come up with so many awesome mugs this year. The store is easily accessible and anyone can arrange a last minute gift. This lip print cup is everywhere on Instagram and I have seen most of the time these used as props to beautify the photos than to actually drink tea or coffee.


I hope this might be a little helpful. Read Dazzling Gifts - Holiday Gift Guide/Gift Ideas (Part 2)

Charlotte Tilbury 'Charlotte's Magic Cream' Treat & Transform Moisturizer (review)

Charlotte Tilbury Magic cream and Multi Miracle Glow
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream is a moisturizer. A Magic Moisturizer. A magical product that is a blend of 'secret unique' ingredients. It claims to re-plump the skin, reduces the appearance of wrinkles and magically treats and transforms tired skin in an instant. These are just few of the claims made by this product. Doesn't this sounds intriguing and amazing?

The products contains hyaluronic acid, Sodium Hyaluronate, BioNymph Peptide Complex, Rose hip oil, Vitamin E along with Damask rose water and Extracts of Frangipani, and many other good stuff. (read full description here)
Charlotte Tilbury Magic cream
I being skincare obsessed, really wanted to try this product as well as the Multi- Miracle glow. So when I got a chance to try this generous deluxe sample of the cream that came as Gift with Purchase I grabbed the opportunity. (Nope, not as a PR sample by the company, i wish they sent though) but by buying it myself.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic cream
Color: White

Texture and Consistency: Thick, heavy, dense, soft and creamy

Scent: It smells like Ponds cold cream mixed with a sunscreen. A floral scented sunscreen. There is no where mention of the sunscreen on the jar, but it sure is there. Again both of the jars that I have are Deluxe size samples. So the original jar might have some mention of it. I am not sure. 

Application: I apply this on a clean, dry face. I dot my face with many dots and spread it with my finger tips. I have a dry skin, so even if I am a bit generous with dots, it works for me.


Feel on Skin: The product is a moisturizer, so it obviously moisturizes. My skin feels super soft and hydrated. This creamy product spreads easily and is absorbed almost instantly. There is no stickiness or tackiness. The face does not appears greasy, though if I am generous with the quantity, it makes me look shiny for sometime, but then that doesn't lasts too long because my dry face absorbs any amount of grease. It does not feel heavy nor clogs the pores.

Effect on Skin: The effect of this is what is actually magical. The face looks super glowy, not oily or greasy glowy but really glowy. It is as if there is a halo, a blurring effect, that we usually create in photographs using filter. It is difficult to explain, but there is something in it that is different than million other moisturizers and creams that I slather. I also apply it an hour or so before my makeup and it makes the skin pretty good for applying anything on top of it. I have not noticed any extra oiliness or fading of makeup with this underneath. The key though is to apply at least 30 minutes before makeup application and let it sink in and do its job


Packaging: This comes is a heavy acrylic jar. Again the jars I have are samples. One is just a plastic container and the other one is a neat replica of the original jar. I could guess it would be heavy because I have the CT Multi miracle glow (review) and that container is really nice and heavy. Also, it is said that skincare products should not come in jars. They lose their potency everytime the whole product is exposed to air when the jar is opened. It is also not acceptable due to hygiene reasons. Personally, I do agree to all these things, but a cream this heavy is better and convenient to use when it is in a jar.

Charlotte Tilbury Magic cream and Multi Miracle Glow

Verdict: I love this product. Initially for first few days I was like, it is OK. Only when I stopped using it, I realized what I was missing. Agreed it is just a moisturizer, but there is something really awesome about it that I have yet to see in any other moisturizer. Also, I have dry skin and I am used to beauty oils. They are a major part of my skincare ritual. So this product does work for me. I do think that someone with oily and combination skin might find this too heavy and see it settling around the nose area. Again skincare products are very personal and I really wish I could show before and after pictures of myself. This is one of the two moisturizers I am enjoying currently. Another one is the Kiehl's Super Multi Corrective Cream (review). Anyways, a lovely product and worth giving a try. The product is also available in gift sets here and here

Beauty Buys/Haul - Eve Lom, Lorac, Charlotte Tilbury

EVE LOM

'BEAUTY BUYS' is just another term coined for the infamous 'HAUL'. It is the list of things I buy, try and the ones you will hear me 'yak', 'blab', 'review' about in next few posts!!! Call this a 'Preview'..  

If you love beauty, skincare and make up products, you probably know how good Holiday seasons are for buying these. There are tons of 'gift sets', 'value sets', 'trial kits' that are released and they give chance to stock up the usual or try out some new stuff. These come with some perks as well. Firstly they make good value for money or at least don't appear crazy expensive, are beautifully packed in boxes and wrapped excellently. The brands also give generous gifts with purchase and the department stores throw in extra goody bags and samples. They give good discounts as well, especially during Black Friday and Cyber Monday. 

I personally take this opportunity to 'self -gift'. I try my best to haul good stuff now and then go on a 'no buy' for next few months. This gives me a chance to try and enjoy whatever I have purchased and then review them for coming months. This is one reason my blog hardly ever has 'latest' or 'newest' product reviews.

EVE LOM The Classics 

Eve Lom is a brand new to me. I have tried their samples before, so this set from Neiman Marcus was an excellent choice to try the whole line. I don't see this particular set anymore. There are other gift sets though. The set gives me a chance to try Eve Lom Cleanser & Muslin Cloth, Eve Lom Rescue Masque, Eve Lom Kiss mix, Eve Lom Radiance Lift Creme. Super awesome! 

FRESH - BLACK TEA SKIN CARE FAVORITES
Fresh® 'Black Tea' Skincare Favorites was my first pick for self gifting. 

FRESH - BLACK TEA SKIN CARE FAVORITES
I love this brand and this particular set has two products that are absolutely new for me. The Black Tea Age-Delay Cream and Black Tea Firming Overnight mask. The Age Delay Eye Concentrate is something I have tried before. The Black Tea Instant Perfecting mask is my absolute favorite (review).

NUXE

Nuxe is one brand that I always wanted to buy since I had tested their product testers at Target. They all smelled so good. So I ordered a few products from them. Nuxe Travel Kit and Nuxe Dry Oil Huile Prodigieuse®

NUXE - THE ESSENTIALS

Nuxe Travel Kit (6 NUXE ESSENTIALS IN A TRAVEL SIZE)

NUXE - THE ESSENTIALS

This set includes the following 6 TSA-approved sizes of: 

- Prodigieux® Shower Oil (30 ml) 
- Micellar Cleansing Water (35 ml) 
- Rêve de Miel® Ultra-Comforting Body Cream (30 ml) 
- Prodigieux® le Parfum (1.2 ml)
- Crème Fraiche® de Beauté (Normal Skin) (15 ml)

CHARLOTTE TILBURY 
Charlotte Tilbury, a brand that is expensive and attractive, both in terms of packaging and names. I must admit I am biased. I have couple of her products and they are good, but not unique. I just get sucked in. The names just pull me, like a magnet! I picked the Charlotte Tilbury 'Air Brush Flawless Finish' Skin Perfecting Micro-Powder and Charlotte Tilbury Powder & Sculpt Brush. I got a freebie and I chose the 'Magic Cream' again. I love this product and these generous 0.5 oz samples last a while. I am still using my first sample of the Magic cream.

LORAC PRO PALETTE
Then we had Kohl's and their Kohl's cash, a reward system that the store had. Kohl's carries Lorac and I picked a Lorac Pro palette. I never had this even though it is one of the most popular palette that the brand carries. I always wear neutral shades and my Too Faced Natural eyes, Bobbi Brown Warm eyes palette or the MAC Neutral palettes do the job. Very excited to try this.

SEPHORA BLACK FRIDAY $10 DEALS - 2015

SEPHORA BLACK FRIDAY $10 DEALS - 2015 (ALTERNA)

Lastly we had the Black Friday and Sephora had amazing $10 deals. These are the best way to try new products and they make excellent stocking stuffers or part of a gift basket. These sets are not available anymore but all the products are permanent.

Nest Eau de Parfume Rollerball Trio (Verde, Dahlia & Vines, Indigo)
Tocca Beauty Hand Cream, Body Scrub, and Perfume set (Giulietta)
Too Faced Sexy Lids & Lashes Set
Buxom Strut Your Stuff Lip & Eye Trio
Sephora Collection Face Mask Explorer Set
Cover FX Face and Eye Primer Set
Alterna Haircare Caviar Anti-Aging Transformation Trio

As I type this I have a $25 off $50 Sephora VIB coupon calling me to place an order. How can I let it go waste? 
New haul and few goodies few posts later.
