planet beauty x the glossarie giveaway!

planet beauty x the glossarie giveaway!

i’m so thrilled to partner with planet beauty for a giveaway featuring four of my favorite products. i was introduced to the cosmetic e-retailer last month and i’m still floored by how many of the best brands they carry. after a quick browse, i easily found dozens of products that i had reviewed in the glossarie over the years, ranging from popular cult favorites to those lesser known niche brands that i’ve got a soft spot for.

my lucky cali girls can actually visit this beautiful mecca in person and browse all of their amazing brands. for the rest of us, we can shop the incredible selection online enjoying free shipping on orders over $34!

to celebrate this pretty discovery, the lovely people at beauty planet have selected four fabulous glossarie favorites to give away to one lucky reader:

sara happ’s the lip scrub in vanilla bean ($24)
murad’s clarifying mask ($37)
deborah lippmann happy birthday ($18)
tokyo milk makeup bag ($14)

m-61 limited edition sara happ lip scrub

add this to my summer wish list:

sara happ, the world’s lip scrub queen has teamed up with bluemercury’s marla beck to create a limited edition formula. m-61 is marla’s own technical skincare line which marries naturopathic cures and dermatological heavy hitters like retinol and glycolics. for the lip scrub, sara and marla opted to whip up a scent inspired by the signature water served at bluemercury resort spa infused with lemon, mint, and cucumber. the result is a revitalizing little luxury that gets lips soft and supple. sugar and citruses work together to exfoliate dry, flaky lips while jojoba and grapeseed oils condition skin. cucumber and mint act as a pick-me-up keeping lips hydrated and energized. the perfect summer treat!

limited edition sara happ and m-61 lip scrub is $24 at bluemercury.

february favorites: v day lovelies

1 / 2 / 3 / 4

a most glamorous cocktail ring, sexy scented candles, a poppy striped keyring, and luscious cupcake-flavored lip scrub are just four of the things i’m loving this month. not only would any of them make perfect valentine’s day prezzies (pay attention, fellas – all three of you reading) but they would certainly bring a little brightness to you year-round.

i sure hope my valentine is reading :)

do you make love lists? what’s caught your eye this month?
