Battle of the Purple Lipsticks

If you know me, you know that I LOVE a good purple lipstick. Oh yes, girl..you thought I was in love with red lippies, uh? Yeah…a good red lip is indeed all that and a bag of kale chips.

And I’m leaving it up to you to decide which one is best.

Because ain’t no way I’m choosin’…

Green Beauty: SJ Creations Pure Body Organics

As promised, a majority of the body care products that I review on Clumps will be from brands that include organic ingredients, and are free of sulfates and all of the other harsh additives that some products may have. I mean, don’t get me wrong. I think you should use whatever floats your boat. But these days, with my skin acting the way it does, I HAVE to use products that are not only nourishing but gentle. And it just so happens that the majority of these products are natural.

I have been LOVING  Pure Body Organics’ body lotion in lavender. And here’s why…

Amor de Lacquer: Sally Hansen holiday nail polish 2010

Welcome to another post of Amor de Lacquer….the series all about nail polish and nail care! Send me your requests, suggestions and ideas to Brittany@ClumpsOfMascara.com.

B, what is Christmas like in Florida? I get this question a lot. Short answer? It’s great. I mean, don’t get me wrong–there is nothing like sipping cocoa while chestnuts roast on an open fire. I love bundling up and wearing boots and scarves. But would I trade all of that for doing cannonballs in the pool in late November? No ma’am.

And although we’re hittin’ 85 degrees here in Orlando, sometimes it’s hard to get into the holiday spirit because it just doesn’t feel like Christmas time. Hence why I love when my favorite beauty brands come out with collections that are holiday-appropriate.

OMG, just WAIT until you see how dynamite that gold is. Just wait. Hit the jumps to see the collection up close.
