Ladies and gentlemen, Suka & Spice now has its very own domain name! A little home in the big world of the internet. It's like we've moved from renting an apartment to buying property. As if that weren't enough, we've finally got the new header up that I've been promising! I'm so obsessed with the drawing, which was created by my dear (handsome..single..intelligent..*ahem, ladies*) cousin. My vision was an island girl relaxing in the ocean--he took that and ran with it. I'm not at all shocked. What do you think?
With just a handful of days left until Christmas, I'm sure there are a few of you out there who are contemplating a late night trip to the mall to pick up last minute gifts. I finally had it two nights ago, and completed the bulk of my shopping online. People are crazy at this time of year, and I swear the shops bring out the best in them. Sometimes I have to stop just to tweet something ridiculous that I hear when waiting in line at the register.
Oh right. Last minute gifts.
So, if you happen to be one of those last minute shoppers, and you're just not sure what to grab your best girl, friend, or beauty-obsessed pal--these are a few of my favorite recent palettes. You'll be bumped to the top of their nice list in no time.
Urban Decay Book of Shadows II
Sixteen vibrant shadows, two liners (which can undoubtedly be used daily), and a mini eyeshadow primer. This is sold out in Sephora (still available at Ulta), and all the more reason to gift it. Who doesn't like something limited? Best for: The girl who is a bit creative, and likes to experiment with color.
Too Faced Glamour Revolution
Glosses, blush, bronzer, shadows and primer. The fact that there is a chocolate scented bronzer included in this one, is enough reason to justify this as a gift. Add to that, the fact that one of the nine eyeshadows is called George & Weezie. Best for: The one who does her makeup in the car, or the bathroom at work--so she'll be needing everything in one place.
Although the smallest of the three gift ideas, this may be my favorite. Benefit has delivered on a trio boxed blusher/bronzer, consisting of Dallas, Hoola, and Coralista. I picked this up because of Coralista (top left), and have been using that blusher nearly every day since. It's a shade that would suit nearly any skin tone, and leaves you with a glowy and natural effect. Available exclusively at Ulta and HSN.com. Best for: The chic who goes au natural most of the time. This way, she can contour with variety.
Are you finished with your shopping list? Have any beauty-related items fallen onto it?
You know I couldn't leave this girl, with her snowflake bow, out of the festivities...
