Getting Ready for the Holidays

It's no secret we are slightly obsessed with beauty products and Christmas (honestly, how is it already the "holiday season"?!), so when we received this Advent calendar from QVC in the mail full of beauty products, we were beyond excited! Is it embarrassing to say it made us want to put up our Christmas trees? LOL - we had to pump the brakes on that one ;). But, we wanted to share this with you today because now is the time if you want to order one - we each ordered one to gift our mamas with this year! 
We were seriously shocked at HOW MANY amazing products are included - we didn't want to leave anything out...so here we go! 
I've used this pressed powder for awhile now and love it. It does exactly what it says!
This is the ulitmate eye kit! The Bye Bye Pores reduces pores and fine lines (love to use it on my crows feet), the mascara is awesome, and who couldn't use a new eyelast curler? This one was such an upgrade from my old school curler lol! We like to wear lashes when we have big events like weddings or holiday parties! 
These smell oh so good! Perfect to throw in your purse for when you're traveling - I'm packing a couple of these for my trip to Seattle! So much easier than packing a full bottle of perfume.
 A beauty sponge is my all time favorite way to apply foundation (it gives an airbrushed finish), but a lot of people don't know you have to get it wet before you use it!
We had never seen these before but they are great for traveling! They are individually wrapped, so easy to throw in your bag! The leopard cloth (removes makeup) below has the best reviews!
I already use AND love all of these products! I discovered the Paula's Choice BHA liquid over the summer - my mom had it and it worked so well on my hormonal acne. I mentioned the PTR mask in last week's beauty post - it's another favorite for sensitive skin.
I have mentioned before I love philosophy - I think their skincare is so great, and if you've never smelled anything 'amazing grace' you need to! It's one of my all-time fave scents! Molton Brown is another cult favorite and the Eucalyptus scent is so refreshing!
Love that it comes with so many creams to try - it's always nice to get smaller samples to test out before you spend money on the large size! We've heard amazing things about the StriVectin neck cream and can't wait to try it. 
We both love Nest candles and were so excited to try the perfume.
Matte lipgloss has become a recent obsession. This bareMinerals one leaves the perfect finish - it's not dry or sticky. I have it in two other colors as well and it smells ahhhmazzing! 
A few things we always keep in our bags are a nail file & a mirror - both are so necessary when you're always on the go!

We were so impressed with the amount of products in the Advent calendar, it's such a fun take on a holiday tradition and it's on sale today! PS - check out the amazing reviews!
