When I saw the mark Star Status Eyeshadow Palette for the first time I knew it was going to be an instant hit with me. I absolutely adore its three shimmery shades that create the perfect light and shiny to dark and smokey eye effect. It comes in two different groups of shadows, one for creating the typical kohl black smokey eye (Meteor Showers), and the other is varying shades or copper and brown (Earth Angel) to give you a more natural-looking sheen — Either one is a must-have. Bonus, they’re inexpensive which makes them the perfect stocking stuffer, so grab one for you, and one for your sister and don’t forget that picky teen in your life!

She may play a sparkly vampire in the latest Twilight flick, but in real life Kristen Stewart hit the red carpet this week looking perfectly human and alive. Her cherry stained lips and rosy cheeks were the piece de resistance to her look. if you’re looking for the perfect look for a  holiday bash, Kristen’s is definitely worth duping.
Sephora-Lollipop-Lip-Gloss.jpgOnce in awhile, it’s okay to buy products just for the packaging. Especially when they’re as adorable as the Sephora Collection Lollipop Lip Gloss.

This lip gloss looks just like a lollipop—and the color is just as sweet! Inside the round black ball is a gorgeous pale pink gloss liberally loaded with sparkle. It creates a gorgeous, almost clear finish, so it’s perfect for layering over other glosses and lipsticks.

Plus, it isn’t sticky or tacky at all. It feels just like a lip balm! Oh, and the cherry on top? It smells and tastes just like a lollipop!

The Sephora Collection Lollipop Lip Gloss retails for $6 at
