The LookBag December 2012 Opening

Here's an opening video on a sample subcription you may not know about. It's called The LookBag, and it offers a variety of nice stuff. In fact, I prefer it to my Glossybox and my Birchbox, so check out my video if you'd like to see what I got from them in December.

Thanks for watching, and don't forget to subcribe to my channel on YouTube, give this video the thumbs up, and follow me on Bloglovin', Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest for more of my adventures in makeup and beauty.

Cheers, Beauty Fans!

Limecrime Alchemy Palette

Greetings, Beauty Fans!

Just recently picked up this palette online at a Black Friday sale, and although it was billed as all duochromes, I'd say maybe two of these shades are actual duochromes. And by duochrome, I mean, having more than one distinct shade, and changing shades in different kinds of lighting. Actually, my Tarte We Wish You Wealth palette has more true duochromes than this baby, but can you buy that anymore? Nope. Sorry, guys.

The purple one from Limecrime Alchemy, aka Love Potion #9, definitely is. And so is the green one, Lucky Charm. I love duochromes, and I wished it had been as advertised, but I still say this is a nice palette with some cool shades. I put together this quick look using spellbound and divination on the lids and Divination in the crease. It's a little unusual, and probably needed a bit more grounding with some dark eye liner at the lash line, but who isn't pressed for time when getting out the doors during this busy holiday season?

I must say, Limecrime's packaging is ridiculously cool, and I adore the way it looks all Harry Potter and magicky. Bully for them, and thanks for feeding my inner aesthetic dragon. You have a fan for life, Limecrime! Have I failed to mention I love magical and occult lore? Well now you know.

Hope you enjoy my photos of the thing itself, swatches and my look below!

Love, BeautyJones

Unique LA Haul

Hey, kids--

Unique LA is an awesome holiday gift show in downtown LA. Check it out and get on their mailing list so you too can be an LA hipster. And if you don't know what the heck that means, it's a good thing! It's your life, maybe, just add a fedora! So here's what I bought there.

McGlynn Family: Spoiler Alert. One of my crappy gifteez is in here, so don't watch this until later, or skip through. If you happen to watch this, we'll do our best to camouflage our gifts with no hip wrapping, no paper with bacon or meat on it, or scary clowns, etc. But watching means it's on you, just sayin.'

For more on Unique LA, go to StateofUnique.com

Happy Holiday, Beauty Fans!
