SpaRitual Home for Winter/Holiday 2014 features six new shades in various finishes, and these are not your typical holiday shades, I might add.

Ok I lied, there are a couple that are very holiday-esque (Authentically and Finding), but four of them are definitely more “winter-y” looking. I only have half the collection to share with you, but I think I might have some of the best ones.

Deborah Lippmann I’ve Gotta Be Me Nail Lacquer Set

Deborah Lippmann Ive Gotta Be Me

The Deborah Lippmann I’ve Gotta Be Me Nail Lacquer Set was created in honor of their 15th anniversary. Congratulations Deborah Lippmann, I am so happy that you exist!

This limited edition set includes six mini nail shades with either a creme or shimmery finish. I had a pretty good experience with the formula for all six of these. No streaks, no clumps, no cuticle dragging and most were just two coats.

Urban Decay Naked on the Run Palette

Urban Decay Naked On The Run Palette

The brand new Urban Decay Naked on the Run Palette has landed on my desk at VV HQ!

Naked on the Run is a limited edition all-in-one palette. Inside the rose-gold metallic set you will find items for the eyes, cheeks and lips as well as a gigantic mirror. As the name implies, this kind of is perfect for an on the run palette. Everything inside goes perfectly together and you can create a day-time look or a smokier night-time look with the shadows and liner included.

Oh and did I mention all six of the eyeshadows shades are brand new shades you can’t find elsewhere? You also get a full-sized Naked Ultra Nourishing Lipgloss in Sesso, a travel-sized 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Stag (these are also new shades) and a travel-sized Perversion Mascara.

What Product Do You Feel Is Overhyped?

Woman Hairspray

Oh hello there. It feels like forever since I posted but it was just yesterday! Sorry it’s been slow on my end, I’ve been trying to get rid of a cold so I’ve been doing a lot of couch-surfing the last couple days. I need to get well because on Friday I am going to Cat Town with a friend. Yes indeed, this is the US’s first cat cafe where they have cats living there who need adopting. I think this is such a great idea because it’s a much better environment for them than a shelter. Of course my cats are going to kill me when they catch a whiff of me when I get home…I promise to take lots of pics and post them on my Instagram!

Ok so are there any beauty products you finally tried after hearing about them forever but you were completely unimpressed by them? I can think of a few but one that really stands out for me is L’Oreal Elnett Hairspray.

Pacifica Vegan Nail Color in Heart of Gold

Pacifica Heart Of Gold Nail Color

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend and are revved up for the week ahead.

Pacifica Vegan Nail Color in Heart of Gold is one of those utterly beautiful gold shades I always fall so hard for.

As you may know by now, Pacifica Nail Colors are 7-free, which includes being vegan and cruelty-free. They have quite a nice variety of colors and finishes now, and the quality of the ones I have tried so far as been really good. Oh and did I mention they are only $9.00? That’s pretty good, I think. Also, it’s a small thing, but I love the gold metallic design on the caps. It just makes them more distinctive in my ever-growing collection.
