Hmm… That space beneath the tree is looking sadly empty now that Christmas is officially over.

We should totes fix that.

One of my favorite holiday collections this year has been Sonia Kashuk’s ( review right here). She did this luxurious gold and black Chanel-esque art deco theme, and the makeup was to die for, of course.

I got to thinking… You know what? This would be a great one for a giveaway!

The prize…

Four of my favorites from Sonia’s holiday 2014 collection (an $86 value).

Sonia Kashuk Eye Palette in Deco Starlet

The Sonia Kashuk Eye Palette in Deco Starlet ($19.99)

The Sonia Kashuk Holiday 2014 Collection Proves It’s the Golden Age of Luxurious, Affordable Makeup

Published in: Collections, Makeup, Palettes, Product Reviews, Sonia Kashuk

Sonia Kashuk Holiday 2014

Sonia Kashuk’s Art Deco-inspired holiday 2014 collection might give you ideas…

…ideas like, “Whee! Look at me! I’m a flapper in The Great Gatsby, and I’m doing the Charleston!” Then you start dancing around your office, but you pull an inner thigh muscle when you kick a little higher than you should have, and from that day forward, you rue the day you danced the Charleston in your office without properly stretching beforehand.

The Sonia Kashuk Eye Palette in Deco Starlet ($19.99)

Just an FYI! :)

Sonia’s latest limited edition collection does make me want to kick up my heels, it’s true. The seven pieces look totally expensive, but all but one of them are less than $20 each.

Where Do All the Bobby Pins Go? (And a Mini Target Haul)

Published in: Daily Beauty

Goody Bobby Pins

So…where do all the bobby pins go?

Million-dollar question, right?

Over the course of my 39 years, I bet I’ve purchased hundreds — no, thousands — of bobby pins.

Thousands.

And yet right now I can only find three of them.

Why is that? Where do they go? It’s like I live with an invisible bobby pin monster that only comes out at night.

Sometimes I really wish Tabs could talk… He’d probably totally freak out. “YES! FINALLY! I’ve been trying to tell you FOR YEARS! There IS a monster, and it takes all of the bobby pins and my food and my toys and then it goes into the closet!”

LOL!

Goody Bobby Pins

Goody Bobby Pins, $4

I actually just bought this pack of 50 Goody Bobby Pins last weekend from Target, and a quarter of them have already disappeared. I seriously doubt anyone will ever see any of them again. It was fun while it lasted, y’all!

(NO, SERIOUSLY, WHERE DO THEY GO!?)

In what will probably turn out to be just another sorry attempt to break my scrunchie habit (hey, I’m trying), I also picked up a sock bun kit by Mia Beauty, a six-pack of Medium Goody Claw Clips…

…and this Sonia Kashuk Lash & Brow Comb, because it looked great for travel, and you just never know when you’ll face an emergency brow or lash situation that needs urgent attention (a lesson I learned the hard way).

Sonia Kashuk’s Chic Defining Contour Stick, a Near-Dupe for the NARS Cappadoce Matte Multiple, Saves Dollars While Defining Cheekbones

Published in: Sonia Kashuk

The new $10.99 Sonia Kashuk Chic Defining Stick

Ring-a-ling! Ring-a-ling!

I’ll get it! That’s the sound of the NARS dupe alert. :)

In this case, it’s chiming for Sonia Kashuk’s new $10.99 Chic Defining Contour Stick, a near dupe of my beloved (but MUCH more expensive) $39 NARS Cappadoce Matte Multiple.

Sonia Kashuk Chic Defining Stick

The Sonia Kashuk Chic Defining Stick ($10.99)

Both baked golden brown cream sticks have a matte finish (here are swatches of NARS Cappadoce), and both of them can quickly sculpt cheekbones that would rival Johnny Depp’s circa the O.G. 21 Jump Street era.

Both of them are also easy to blend on bare skin or atop foundation — probably due to how lightweight and thin they are, which is great, because it keeps my skin from feeling like it’s suffocating under an inch of plaster.

Sonia Kashuk Chic Defining Stick Swatch

Where the two differ, most obviously, is price ($10.99 versus $39), but also in the shape of the tip. The Multiple’s is huskier, wider and flatter, and it covers more surface area while sitting flush against the skin, whereas the tip on Sonia’s Chic Defining Stick has a slightly smaller (but still husky), rounded, more precise tip that seems to fit the space under my cheekbones a bit better.

For Comfort and Eye-Catching Color, Try Sonia Kashuk’s $8.99 Lustrous Shine Lip Crayons

Sonia Kashuk Lustrous Shine Lip Crayon in Peony

Yet one more reason to go fan-girl over Sonia Kashuk: the unfathomably high levels of pigment in her new Lustrous Shine Lip Crayons.

I can’t believe these $8.99 retractable crayons aren’t more expensive. Smooth, silky and lightweight like a lip balm, they remind me a lot of pricier products from Too Faced and Benefit.
