A Curated Collection
I was delighted when Brian of Makeover Workshop invited me to collaborate on some makeup and skincare Beauty Boxes. These are all products that I have purchased for myself, and have recommended previously here. Now you can enjoy special pricing for the collections, plus receive a bonus gift with each!
The Makeup Beauty Box has my favorite MW blush and lip colors, plus a bonus dual sharpener (very handy for travel or to keep in your makeup bag). I’m wearing both the Neapolitan Lip Liner and rue Rivoli Lipstick in the top photo. This lip liner is such a great color, and works with almost all of my lipsticks, including reds! It stays put, and really helps keep your lipstick in place.
The Skin Care Beauty Box includes:
- Firming Neck and Throat Creme (have noticed my neck is smoother since I’ve been using this, am now on my second jar 👍 )
- Tinted Primer (I use this on its own for nice sheer coverage)
- Re-Creation Lip Treatment (love, love, love this!! Smooths the lips and prevents flakiness)
plus a bonus Foundation brush!
Both of these Beauty Boxes are already value-priced, but you can get an additional 15% off these or any of the individual products listed on the Susan’s Favorites page with code SUSANFAVE ! And you can use code freeship+65a at checkout for free shipping on all orders over $65. Order by December 19 for Christmas delivery.
I’ve periodically received requests for a post on sleepwear recommendations. I’m afraid it would be a pretty short post, as I’ve been mostly wearing Soma “Cool Nights” sleepwear for the last few years. Longer pajamas in the winter, chemises or shorter pajamas in warmer seasons. They are comfortable, and hold up very well. (Fancy lingerie they are not.) They last for a couple of years or more, if you avoid hot water or hot dryers. And the buttons don’t come loose, a big plus in my book. Shown above, pajama top in “festive red” (matching bottoms here). Both are currently marked down, so I just ordered to replace an older pair.
Cute And Practical
I first purchased this little zip wallet about 3 years ago when I needed something smaller for travel. I was smitten with those polka dots. It was a little spendy but this has turned out to be an incredibly practical and durable item. I’ve never switched back to my larger wallet. I’ve continued to use it daily, and it still looks like new. It’s also very well designed, and holds quite a lot for such a small wallet.
Everlane has a very similar style for considerably less. (Other colors available too.) And for the next couple of days, they’re offering free 2-day shipping. Just in case you need any last-minute gifts.
