Happy Veterans Day

Veterans day badge

Today in the USA is Veterans Day, which is a day to honor all those who have served in the armed forces.

Many people in the US confuse Veterans Day with Memorial Day which annoys me, so let’s clear this up. Memorial Day honors those who have died serving their country. Veterans Day honors those who are still alive. You can celebrate Veterans Day and say “Happy Veterans Day” but please don’t go around saying “Happy Memorial Day” because that’s like saying “Happy funeral!”

Having said all that I would like to say Happy Veterans Day to Mr. VV who served in the Air Force for eight years. :)

Pacifica Holiday Reds for 2014

Pacifica Holiday Reds

The Pacifica Holiday Reds for 2014 collection features three shades perfect for the holiday season.

As I mentioned in my previous Pacifica Nail Color post, their colors are 7 free! SEVEN FREE! They are vegan, cruelty-free and free from phthalates, toulene, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, xylene, parabens and camphor. You coud practically drink them! Ok really, that was a joke DO NOT drink them.

But back to the nail colors at hand. Two are red, one is pink and all of them have a creme formula. They have a really nice self-leveling, smooth formula and are super shiny.

Buxom Lip Gloss Roulette for Holiday 2014

Buxom Lip Gloss Roulette

Ready to roll the dice with the new Buxom Lip Gloss Roulette for Holiday 2014?

This limited edition set features fifteen mini Full-On Lip Polish & Lip Cream shades. There are eleven Lip Polish shades and four Lip Cream shades, giving you a nice range of shimmers and creams. They all have a fancy gold cap and logo, which makes them feel extra festive.

These do have lots of shine and that peppermint-y plumping tingle, so if you don’t like that, these may not work for you. Again when I swatched these my lips were just not up to snuff, so I don’t have lip swatches right now.
