I purchased this before Christmas. It smells so yummy like almonds and vanilla frosting. I used it up so quickly cause it was just so relaxing and left my skin baby soft. It was def a nice treat to have since the holidays were kinda stressful for me. I loved the almond scent mixed with vanilla. It smelt like a Christmas dessert for sure.
Pretty baby pink that is cool with lilac tones. It's matte but isn't dry, it's creamy. Yes it's just as good as MAC or NARS. I'm very happy I got it, I like it better then Snob.
Love this shade. It's unique cause its a lilac with a pale yellowy flash. I have to admit I hate how Zoya names all their shades with first names, I like OPI's or Essie's marketing better when it comes to that.

This gel is amazing. I buy it in the tube instead of the bottle pictured here, it doesn't have a kiddy beachy graphic on it. It's fragrance free and isn't dyed, it's a clear well absorbing gel. It dries without any weird after feeling for me. I love using it as a hair gel, it's moisturizing and tames flyaways or frizz naturally. There's no scent so it doesn't clash with perfumes and ect. It also won't cause any breakouts like some hair products do because it's very lightweight. It's perfect for calming any skin irritation too- after shaving, waxing, pimples, burns, ect... and it's just great as a moisturizer after showering. Staple product for sure.
Makeup Brushes -MAC - #187 Duo Fiber Face Brush (Stippling, Skunk Brush)

Love this for liquid foundation. My Face and Body applies perfect with it. I just apply a lil dab to the white tips and stipple it on, I also swirl a bit too which gives me a nice natural totally blended look. It also applies powder foundation, blush, bronzer, and pressed powder really well. I love playing around with things and don't find the need to own a million different brushes. I prefer a light natural look and the187 is perfect for that.

This brush is a dream. It's cute and pink, stands on its own, is super soft, doesn't shed, is perfectly shaped for applying blush to the apples of your cheeks, and it's price is soo cheap. Seriously cannot find one fault and it could have a higher end brand name stamped onto it for sure. It seems to just airbrush my blush right onto my cheeks, I never have any harsh lines or get an uneven look.

Festive mix of rainbow colored glitter. I love it on the tips of my nails on top of bubblegum pink polish. It gives a super cute sprinkled cupcake look.
Love applying this lightly with lipgloss on top for a bright but not omg that is bright look. It's the ultimate pure neon pink that doesn't look too blue or red or orange. There's no frost or shimmer. I get called Barbie at work whenever I wear it, seriously love this shade.
LOVE this trio. It needs primer to really capture how gorgeous the shades are together. It's perfect for sexy smokey eyes and dramatic night time eyes, the dark shades also are perfect liners if u apply them wet. Love NARS' sleek packaging too like always.
I love using lip liner to enhance my lips shape but never want that obvious lined look. Dervish is the perfect pink for that. I line my lips along the natural shape they have and Dervish blends in perfectly. It's a neutral pink with a peach tone to it.
I use NW25 for undereyes and mix NW25 with NC20 for any other issues that I may need to conceal. They mix into a nice medium tone that matches my skin perfect. NW25 is a very peachy pink toned medium shade and NC20 is a yellow toned light/medium shade. My skin is golden yet still kind of pink toned so it's a lil more confusing for me to find a perfect match. This concealer lasts all day and covers perfect so I do not mind buying two. If MAC made it in NC25 I'm pretty sure that would be my match.

Beautiful shimmery champagne. It applies smoothly and lasts all day. You can probably get it for pretty cheap now too. It's really pretty and I love wearing it allover my lid with mascara for a bright eyed look.
