Bare Minerals Two for the Show

Christmas came a little early this year. Well at least the holiday sets and collections from some of my favorite brands are making their way to the shelves. As far as makeup is concerned, this is the most exciting time of the year for me. My first (of many) holiday purchase is the Bare Minerals Two for the Show set. I am altogether giddy about this little gem, as I have had five of the ten shades in the kit on my wish list FOR EVER...and now they're mine. 

So, here are the stats: The set is $39 and you get two sets of 5 best-selling eye colors; each containing 0.28g of product. It appears to be a kit that was designed to be shared, or split into two different gifts.

One set is called Neutral Stunners and contains the shades: Vanilla Sugar, Queen Phyllis, Nude Beach, Celestine and Bare Skin.

(from left to right) Snowflake, Waterlily, Drama, Sex Kitten, True Gold
The other set is called Metallic Wonders and includes the shades: Snowflake, Waterlily, Drama, Sex Kitten and True Gold.  

I have to say, if you have been wanting to try Bare Minerals, or if you are looking for inexpensive stocking stuffers; add this kit to your shopping cart. You won't be disappointed. This kit is definitely a Beauty Vixen KISS.

Beach Front Fitness

I am in South Florida at the moment and one of the major perks of being in here is that I can start my day with a early morning beach run/ workout. I love being outside, so this is ideal for me. I don't even realize how hard I'm working, because I'm enjoying watching the sum come up. It's the best. 
My after workout meal...
Rolled oats with fresh strawberries, raw almonds and a dash of pure maple syrup. The black coffee on the side is a MUST. 

Enjoy your day VIXENS.

Lip Combo Love

Maybelline Mirrored Plum, Cover Girl Divine
I have been lusting after the Maybelline Color Elixirs; but since I am trying to be more deliberate about what I buy, I have chosen to refrain. My favorite color from the collection is Vision In Violet. I dug around in my collection to come up with something that would curb my appetite for it, and came up with beautiful combo.
Cover Girl Divine, Maybelline Mirrored Plum
Cover Girl Divine, Maybelline Mirrored Plum
Cover Girl Lip Perfection lipstick in Divine paired with Maybelline Color Sensational lipgloss in Mirrored Plum totally did the trick. I'm sure it is not an exact match, but the combo gives me the look that I was going for.

YAY!!! for shopping the stash.
