MAC Velvet Teddy’s Party Crew Vault

October 25, 2022

MAC Velvet Teddy’s Party Crew Vault

MAC has some really cute sets out for the holiday season! I’ve ordered a few as gifts this year and and ordered the Velvet Teddy’s Party Crew Vault ($80, value of $145) for myself! I managed to buy it before it sold out at Ulta and Macy’s last week and today it just launched online at MAC Cosmetics. If you have your eye on this neutral lip set act fast! I suspect it will sell out very soon.

MAC Velvet Teddy’s Party Crew Vault

All the colors in this set fall under the same neutral color family with slight variations in undertone and finish. I really love the Velvet Teddy Matte Lipstick color so I knew I had to get this set. Love that each one is full-sized and I think the pink and gold case is really cute! So far Velvet Teddy and Teddy 2.0 are both available individually, the other shades are exclusive to this set.

MAC Velvet Teddy’s Party Crew Vault via The Beauty Lookbook

The difference in undertone is more noticeable and visible in real life. In the photos they all look very similar with subtle differences. Colors and formulas include:

  • Teddy 2.0 Powder Kiss Lipstick – this is a soft diffused matte with an almost airbrush finish, it has medium coverage
  • Velvet Teddy Matte Lipstick – full coverage matte long-wear lipstick
  • Very Teddy Love Me Lipstick – satin slightly glossy finish with a nourishing creamy feel
  • Love Teddy Love Me Liquid Lip Colour – a comfortable glossy liquid lipstick with a beautiful shine (this one pulls more neutral-cool on me)
  • Velveteen Teddy Retro Matte Liquid – liquid lipstick with a matte dry down, budge proof once it sets
  • Teddy Kiss Powder Kiss Liquid Lip Colour – a soft whipped matte liquid lip with an airbrushed smooth powdery look, this is the deepest and pulls more of a rose tone

Colors are swatched below with different lighting, the combination of flash + lights reflect on the glossy finish of some of the formulas. I think the stock swatch photo online at MAC does a great job at showing the differences in undertone. I also added a few MAC Lip Pencil swatches in Boldly Bare, Whirl, Spice and Soar for reference.

Overall love. I have so many neutral nude lipsticks at this point I don’t need another one but I love MAC’s holiday twist on their classic Velvet Teddy lip color. Out of all the formulas I think they’re all really good. I have a soft spot for the Love Me Lipstick and Love Me Liquid Lip Colour since I’m a glossy lip lover at heart.

Chanel Holiday 2022 Demander La Lune

October 21, 2022

Chanel Holiday 2022 Demander La Lune

Chanel Holiday 2022 Demander de Lune Collection has arrived and I have a look at the holiday newness today! I received some pieces in PR and also ordered a few more items to review. I tried everything in the holiday collection except 2 things (skipped one lip product and the eye gloss duo). If you’ve been waiting for swatches I hope you find this review helpful!

Everything is now available at Also at other retailers like Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and more.

Eclat Lunaire Oversize Illuminating Face Powder

Chanel Eclat Lunaire Oversize Illuminating Face Powder

There are two oversized highlighters called the Eclat Lunaire Oversize Illuminating Face Powder ($88). Both of them have a warm undertone. 887 Or Rose is the lighter option and pulls like a light warm rose gold on my skin. 897 Cuivre Dore is the deeper option and is very yellow-gold. These have a metallic finish, texture is smooth almost like a gelee-powder but with a powder finish. They adhere beautifully to the skin. I recommend using a light touch as they’re very pigmented and metallic.

Holiday 2022 Les 4 Ombres

Chanel Les 4 Ombres ($65) 937 Ombres de Lune

Chanel launched one eyeshadow quad in the Les 4 Ombres ($65) 937 Ombres de Lune. This one also pulls very warm with a multi-dimensional copper rose shimmer, neutral tan beige shimmer, sparkling warm yellow gold and a satin medium brown. Pigment is beautiful and easy to build and layer. The overall color theme pulls a lot warmer than I’m used to wearing but once you add liner and smoke out the dark brown shade it comes together in a warm holiday look. I love the embossed detailing on all the items. Chanel always adds those extra touches that make their products beautiful and special.

Chanel Les 4 Ombres ($65) 937 Ombres de Lune

Chanel Les 4 Ombres ($65) 937 Ombres de Lune

For a gold/bronze tone eye I prefer the Tweed Cuivre (reviewed here). For holiday I do think the Ombres de Lune is unique, especially for what we usually see from Chanel. If you’re fair skin this will pull a lot warmer on you. I think it would look stunning on deeper skin tones.

Quality, texture, color payoff are all top notch. Whether or not this quad is for you depends on whether or not you like warm golds.

Holiday Lip Colors

I ordered one of the two new Rouge Allure Laques ($42) in 88 Rose Mystere and I think it’s a very pretty muted rose with a hint of gold shimmer. It’s the perfect medium rose tone I think you can wear all year.

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque 88 Rose Mystere

Chanel Rouge Allure Laque 88 Rose Mystere

There are two new Rouge Allure L’Extrait Lipsticks ($55). Chanel has a bold red with 817 Rouge Selene and a brown plum red with 827 Brun Lunaire. Both have an incredibly smooth texture with rich color payoff. I do think they are dupeable especially with the other existing Chanel colors. You may want to shop your stash.

Chanel Holiday 2022 Lip colors

Holiday 2022 Nails

Chanel Holiday 2022 Le Vernis

Last we have a look at the 3 nail colors for holiday. There are two Chanel Le Vernis ($30) shades in 965 Clair de Lune is a metallic olive shimmer and 963 Super Lune is a red that pulls a dark wine color on the nails. Both have smooth flawless coverage. I love that the olive shimmer has a smooth streak-free finish.

Chanel also launched a new shade of Le Top Coat ($30) in 347 Etoile. This is a superfine gold shimmer. It’s definitely sheer enough that it’s a top coat. The shimmer is fairly dense so you only need one coat. I tried it on it’s own and swatched it next to the Dior Holiday Top Coat in Cosmic for comparison. If I layer on 6 coats I can get enough pigment to cover the nail but it’s still relatively transparent.

Chanel Holiday 2022 Le Vernis

Chanel Le Vernis Super Lune + Etoile

Overall I think the Chanel Holiday 2022 collection is beautiful. I don’t know that this will be for everyone as all the tones pull on the warmer side. Even though I own so many highlighters, I think both Or Rose or Cuirvre Dore are the stand outs in this launch.

Available now at Chanel. Have you checked out the holiday launch yet? What did you think?

Press samples provided by Chanel for review. A few items also purchased by me.

Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas

Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas

Last Minute Holiday Gift Ideas


1 Violet Grey Set / 2 Victoria Beckham Set / 3 T Bar Stand Large / 4 T Bar Stand Small / 5 Belt Bag / 6 Water Bottle / 7 Pave Diamond Hoop Earrings / 8 14k Gold Huggies / 9 Gucci Duo / 10 Hand Cream / 11 Candle / 12 Small Tote / 13 Mini Bag / 14 Aesop Set / 15 Hand Trio / 16 Faux Shearling Slides / 17 Tarte Bow and Go / 18 Jo Malone Cracker / 19 Skincare Set / 20 Nuxe Trio

If you’re still doing some last minute shopping for gifts I have one last Holiday Gift Guide with some ideas for you!

A few of these I own myself and love. The Aesop Protector Trio ($82) has all of my Aesop favorites for the home. I think this makes for the perfect hostess gift! Their Adventurer Roll Up Hand Trio ($56) is another one I love with their hand sanitizers and hand cream.

I’m a minimalist when it comes to jewelry but if you’re looking for some nice classic pieces I love the Mejuri Bold Hoops Earrings ($160) that come in 14k Yellow Gold and White Gold. These are solid gold pieces and I wear these almost every day. I splurged on the Pave Diamond Bold Hoops version ($495) earlier this year and love them. Also love this dainty diamond necklace (worn here).

Lululemon is a favorite at our home. Both Andrew and I use or wear something from Lululemon nearly everyday. I love their Everywhere Belt Bag ($38). It’s the perfect size to carry just the essentials. I bought a bunch of these to give as stocking stuffers this year. I also really love the Everywhere Fleece Belt Bag ($48) which sold out super fast but I have seen it restock a couple times.

The Jewelry T Bar Stands I have that many of you ask about from stories are from Kendra Scott. I have both the Large ($85) and Small ($80) and think they’re really well made. I think these would make super cute gifts, also shown in this Reel here.

The Tarte Bow and Go Set ($35) restocked online at Tarte! And they’re having 30% off sitewide with code 30OFF at checkout! Sephora’s Beauty For All Event ends today with 20% off with code GIFTEASY (one-time use). I’m ordering this Gucci Perfume + Mascara Duo along with a few other things.

Last one I want to highlight is Skinstore! They have lots of great gifts at all price points, great sales and sets. I shared four sets on Instagram in this post here including the Holiday Edit Box ($75), 111Skin Jetsetter Pouch with my favorite Eye Masks ($30, available in Rose and Black), and the NuFace Fix Set ($139). US readers might be really excited to know they carry Nuxe which is so hard to find these days. I’m really happy to have been able to buy their Huile Prodigieuse Trio Set ($66.75) so I can have their body oil in my life again.




Sending you all lots of love and good vibes during this holiday season. I know it can be extremely stressful this time of year! I’m hosting another giveaway! ONE reader will be selected to win a selection of my favorites! Open to US and Canada readers, 18 years or older. To enter:

This holiday Chanel has two sets for Cyber Monday, both are exclusive to and limited edition. The sets include a Beauty To-Go Lip and Fragrance Set ($74) and Travel Heroes Men’s Essentials Set ($76). If you’re looking for some last minute gifts I think these are great options!

It has the Boy de Chanel Lip Balm (which he has and uses) and a travel Bleu de Chanel Eau de Parfum Twist and Spray. It also comes in a limited-edition pouch.

Both sets contain items that are part of the permanent lineup, so the recipient can always replenish the items once they use them up. I think these sets they make for really nice gifts. The box has a festive holiday design I think is fun too! If you have your eye on them I suggest you act fast! Last year’s sold out almost instantly!

Nail Polish worn in this post is the Le Vernis in Rouge Brun.

November 23, 2021

Gift Ideas for the Hard to Shop For

I have another gift guide sharing some ideas for the hard to shop for. If you’re in search of some gift ideas for the girl who has everything I hope this gives you some good ideas! When in doubt you can’t go wrong with a good hand cream, face mask, lip balms, or their favorite hair styling products in a set!

A good purse mirror that lights up makes a huge difference for those on-the-go! I love both the Riki Cutie Portable Lighted Mirror ($60) and the simplehuman Compact Makeup Mirror ($80, mirror is 3x magnified).

The Lululemon Everywhere Belt Bag ($38) is one of my best buys this year. They launch seasonal colors and I think the Mulled Wine and Pink Savannah are really cute!

A DIY mani set is always fun and Olive and June has a lot of great sets to pick from. I love that you can customize some of them too! The Mani Weekender has all of the essentials for an at-home manicure. They also just launched The Press-On System which I’m excited to try!

If you have someone on your list who loves Byredo I just noticed a beautiful set online. They launched La Grande Selection ($310 on pre-order) which contains 24 x 2 ml vials of their iconic scents. This is the ultimate fragrance sampler!

The Sugarfina Holiday Sets are always fun and I’m completely obsessed with the Advent Calendar (ordered these for my niece and nephew).

Good fitting Sherpa Jackets are hard for me to find. Since I’m on the shorter/petite side most overwhelm my entire frame but I still love the Alo Yoga Foxy Sherpa Jacket ($188, use code VIP2021 for 20% off). Wearing it here.




Luxury Splurges

It’s currently on sale on the By Terry website (marked down to $164)! The Molton Brown Advent Calendar ($270) is always a win for anyone as it’s filled with things that will actually get used up!

The Bobbi Brown Holiday Highlights Deluxe Set is stocked with staples I think anyone would love to have. Perfect for travel or to try out new skincare in mini form.

The T3 Aire Brush Duo is currently on sale at T3 and Ulta marked down to $134.99. Sale at T3 is 25% off sitewide (ends 11/28).

Last item I want to highlight the Fresh Sake Bath. I’m a bath person and think it’s the best way to relax and unwind at the end of the day. Fresh finally brought back their Sake Bath ($82) and I think it’s 100% worth the splurge.

Sharing three gift guides today with Holiday Gift Ideas for the home! I have three roundups including cute Hostess Gift Ideas, Work From Home Gifts for the home office, and also gifts for the Kitchen.

I love Aesop for the home and the Protector Set has all of my favorites for the home. I ordered some USB lighters and really like them! I think pairing this with a cute candle would make a great gift. You girls know I love APL Slides and I still love their seasonal Shearling Slides (I plan on buying this year’s colors for myself too). You can’t go wrong with a cozy throw or blanket and I 100% love Barefoot Dreams! Also love Marshall Speakers and I have the Uxbridge Speaker in my home office. Has a lot of power, great sound, but compact so it doesn’t take up a lot of shelf or desk space.

1 Mini Coquette / 2 Dutch Oven / 3 Nespresso Machine / 4 Cheese Plate / 5 Cheese Knife Set / 6 Marble Wine Cooler / 7 Hand Soap Dispenser / 8 Mini Copper Mugs / 9 Mini Cocotte / 10 Ice Bucket / 11 French Press / 12 Non-stick Pan / 13 Serving Boards / 14 Water Kettle / 15 Olive Oil + Balsamic Vinegar Duo / 16 Mini Bowls / 17 Le Creuset Dutch Oven

Rounded up some cute ideas for the kitchen and home! I swear by my Nespresso Vertuo Next Machine since it makes both coffee and espresso. I used to work at Williams-Sonoma for years and put a lot of tools to the test in their cooking class demos and love both Staub and Le Creuset for dutch ovens or mini coquettes. I own both brands and use them weekly. A cute cheese board + knife set is a no-fail gift! And I also love the Williams-Sonoma Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar. Olio Santo is another favorite. I’ve used them for over a decade!

I pulled some gift ideas for the home office especially since many of us work from home these days. I found a lot of things I actually want for myself! Two things I use on a regular basis are water bottles and tumblers. I own and love both the Lululemon Water Bottle and Yeti Tumblers. I think either make for great practical gifts people will actually use. Andrew bought me these Jaybird Vista2 Headphones recently which I really love. I have small ears that are sensitive and I really like that these have interchangeable ear gels that fit my ear shape/size without hurting them. They come with a charging case and the battery life is very good!
