Product Release


Last year my awesome hubby purchased all four of the Limited Edition Rose blushes for me when Milani rolled it out.  This year – they are rolling out four new shades.  Since I didn’t have the chance to review the shades from last year – I’ll be talking about those in a blog post and video review soon and hope to get my hands on some of these new shades as well.

Milani Limited Edition Rose Blushes

Last year’s limited edition blushes made my Best of Beauty 2013 products because of their matte texture (most were matte) and staying power.  Not to mention that they are the awesomeness that come out of Milani and Milani blushes are some of my favorites.  These blushes retail on for $7.99 (shipping not included) and will be available next month for purchase at select Walgreens stores.  If you can get your hands on these, I highly suggest it.  Not only are they absolutely gorgeous in packaging and design, I truly love the first edition and I know I’ll be rampaging through my local Walgreens stores for this collection as well.

Note:  A review on the original four Milani blushes will be coming soon as well as the new release for this years four if I can get my hands on all of them.  Stay tuned.


As many know, I am a huge supporter and addict of The Body Shop’s products.  Their Special Edition Blueberry Body Butter is no exception and I am absolutely loving how they make my body feel and how awesome they smell.  I wanted to introduce you to the new Blueberry goodies that was just released on January 27th – check out The Body Shop’s Facebook Page for all the details on how you can get a discount on this line.

I also did a write up on Beauty Stat for the new Blueberry goodies.  Be sure to check it out here:  I have photos of all the goodies and you can pick and choose which ones you love best.  Also – don’t forget to check out my Video reveal which you can find here: and see all the product live as I go through each one with you.  The video is also embedded below.

Do you know that the Body Shop sells a jar of body butter every two seconds?  I believe it!  As a big supporter and lover of their products, I make an order about once a month and I am always happy with what they offer.  Check it all out!  Have you tried The Body Shop’s products before?  What are your favorites?

There are several Milani Cosmetics products that are to be launching in just a few short weeks.  I have also been told that you can order some of the new additions via Milani’s website –  Right now, I have some new lippies to share with you.  I am not sure what else they have coming out but as soon as it is released or as soon as I receive anything – I’ll be sure to let you know.

Here are two videos of the new releases with swatches.  I’ll be posting the final release of the Brilliant Shine glosses in the next 24 hours and will list that video here as well.  I was going to do them all on one video but decided I would split it up so you could decide which would be the best buy – or get all of them.  I hope to have photos with swatches and my thoughts on the products once I have had the chance to use them.  I’ve been wearing them all week so hopefully I’ll have some reviews up in the next week!


Pretty much as soon as I got the email that the Naked 3 Palette was available, it was sold out.  Darn it. lol  But that means this palette that everyone has been waiting for has been released.  Are you getting it?  What are your thoughts?  I had hoped that they would have a nice purple shade in this palette and since this palette is Rose toned, they could have done a plum purple with Rose gold glitter or shimmer in it.  But, that just means that I have my hopes on them releasing a Naked 4 with purple shades. lol j/k

Did you guys take advantage of the QVC’s Special Value yesterday?  The Tarte Bow & Go set was on sale for Special Value at just $49.98 plus shipping and handling.  Such a steal considering all that you would receive in this kit.  Those of you that did not take advantage of it – that’s okay – because it is still on sale on QVC for just $54.98 – which is a steal even if you it is $5.00 more.  The regular price will be $61.00 once the discount ends.


Now, is it worth it?  Of course – even at full price on the site, the whole kit is definitely a steal.  A 24 piece collection with full sized goodies to melt any heart this Holiday Season.  I think it’s not only an awesome value but a great buy and of course, Tarte is probably one of my favorite brands, so I was happy to get it at such an awesome deal yesterday.

I have said this on many occasions, I’m a total eos addict.  When I got the email that their Holiday 3 pack was rolled out, I ran over to the site to order it and it was sold out.  Apparently it was sold out in a day and so I missed out on it.  But, I have hope that I can find it at my local Walgreens or CVS.  They also have it at Target or Ulta, both of which I do not have near me or on my island.  I am super excited because this collection has the Vanilla Bean flavor – yummy!  It also includes the Pomegranate Raspberry and Smooth Mint, two awesome flavors as well.  Definitely check out your local stores to see if you can get your hands on this set.  Retail $9.99

The eos Passion Fruit Lip Balm is one of my favorites.  So much so that this time of the year when they release it on Limited Edition, I try to stock up on it so it will last me the year at least.  Here in Hawaii, we call Passion Fruit – Liliko’i.  It is my absolute favorite eos Lip Balm Sphere EVER and I’m happy to say that they are back again.  Available at Target Stores (sadly, not online – which is a bummer since I don’t have a Target here) and you can get your hands on this favorite of mine.
