The Best 2014 Black Friday and Cyber Monday Deals

I'm a shopper (have you noticed? I seriously love to shop), and every year the on-line shopping around Thanksgiving is my favorite! Like previous years, I've been watching many of my favorite stores for sales and deals, and I'll be sharing the information with you! Below is the information about some of my favorite sales, and I've even picked out a few of my favorites for you. Note that this is the best info I have gotten (Usually from PR reps or the stores sending out info), but it may or may not be completely accurate. I'll be updating as I get more information, and note that some of these sales have already started!

The Beauty Spotlight Team: Weekend Reads

Check out Prime Beauty's list of The Best Beauty Gifts Under $25!

Grab your sneakers and go! It's time to streak with Urban Decay Naked on the Run Palette Review and Tutorial by Phyrra.

If you ever wondered whether Urban Decay Stray Dog and Suspect were dupes for Burberry Midnight Brown and Pale Barley, then take a look at their glimmering swatches, and review on Lola's Secret Beauty Blog. I think you will agree that all four shades are gorgeous, but would you consider them similar enough to justify having all four?

It's that time again – holiday gift giving. Beauty Info Zone has several gift guides to help you choose. If you know a Glam Girl then check this one out but if your list has more Practical Fashionistas then we can help you there too.

If Guerlain Un Soir à l’Opéra is the collection Sunny from Mostly Sunny was looking forward to the most, Burberry Winter Glow has turned out to be the best surprise! Come check out the swatches of 6 drool-worthy pieces!

The Painted Rogue is addicted to both ballet and pretty pink-coral lip products! This week she's combining the two with a tale of the adorable Ballet Monster who gave her a Lancôme Lip Lover in Rose Contretemps!

Pammy Blogs Beauty has found the perfect tool for super quick and easy hair volume that lasts: the VOLOOM!

Perilously Pale shows us her favorite Holiday Eyeshadow Palettes and will have you drooling!

Beautzy Blog's 2 Day Makeup Kit for LA

Beautzy Blog's 2 Day Makeup Kit for LA

Today Linda from Beautzy Blog is sharing her 2 day travel kit! She say, "I travel a lot. Because I’m in LA often for only 2 days, I pretty much have a set kit that I take. A few things vary here and there, but for my usual 'visit the in-laws, hang out with friends, chat with the cousins' LA trip, I take these things."

1. Perlier Honey Miel Face Royal Elixir Youth Serum (get it here): I can use this all over - face, eyes, and neck.

2. Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen (get it here): Sunscreen is an important step I can't miss.

3. Urban Decay 24/7 Liquid Eyeliner in Perversion (get it here): I don't have to worry about smearing or smudging, and since I’ve been using liquid eyeliner for so long, it only takes seconds to apply.

4. BareMinerals High Shine Eyecolor in Moonshine (get it here): This is a gorgeous multi-dimensional color that looks good on its own.

5. Maybelline New York The Nudes Palette (get it here): I love the variety of neutrals in this palette. Because it's only $10, if it gets dropped or lost, I won't cry too hard.

6. Crown Brush Elite Infinity Set (get it here): These are currently my go-to brushes right now, and I love the sleek casing.

7. CoverGirl Colorlicious Lipgloss in Pinkalicious (get it here): This is a pretty color that works for day & night.

8. NYX Butter Lipsticks in Pops and Sweet Tart (get it here): These are lightweight and moisturizing, and I usually keep them in my purse.

9. City Cosmetics Contour Effects Palette (get it here): I don’t contour my face much, but if we go out in the evening, I want to lightly contour my chin and cheeks. I never apply with a heavy hand.

10. NARS Orgasm Blush (get it here): I take this color because I love the way it looks on me, and I have 2.

11. Urban Decay Electric palette (get it here): If we have plans to go out in the evening to the City Walk or somewhere fun, I’ll usually also pack this palette. I love bright eyeshadows!


I paired Linda's picks with the new 12. Tory Burch Travel Nylon Cosmetics Bag, which I have my eye on!

Inspired by Nature: Burt's Bees Lip Crayons

Sponsored Post Product Sent for Review

Inspired by Nature: Burt's Bees Lip Crayons

Recently I shared the new Burt's Bees Lip Crayons with you (check out my initial review of the Lip Crayons), and I have to admit that I'm just as obsessed today as I was when I first tried them out!

Inspired by Nature: Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Redwood Forest

Inspired by Nature: Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Napa Vineyard

Why do I love them so much? These lip crayons are really hydrating, they have good coverage and they're 100% natural. They're actually inspired by nature, just look at the names of all 6 Lip Crayons!

• Redwood Forest
• Napa Vineyard
• Niagara Overlook
• Hawaiian Smolder
• Carolina Coast
• Sedona Sands

Inspired by Nature: Burt's Bees Lip Crayon in Hawaiian Smolder

I'm really loving the lip crayons in Redwood Forest and Napa Vineyard this fall. I'm not usually a darker or red lip girl, but will wear red when I can find an easier way to wear it than a traditional lipstick. The Lip Crayons are perfect for this! Here's a pic of me wearing Napa Vineyard, from postpartum day #1!
