Kate Somerville Cult Favorites Kit

The Cult Favorites Kit ($75; sephora.com) is a skincare value set from Kate Somerville, available at Sephora. Its a beautiful skincare kit with full sizes of the ExfoliKate Cleanser Daily Foaming Face Wash and Goat Moisturizing Milk Cream and a deluxe size of the ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment.

Kate Somerville Cult Favorites Kit


ExfoliKate Intensive Exfoliating Treatment has been one of my favorite exfoliators because of how quick and easy it is to use. It uses a mix of physical and chemical exfoliators to slough off dry skin. I also love the ExfoliKate Cleanser, which is a foaming face wash that I use about 3-4 times a week. It is recommended everyday, but my skin can get a tad sensitive, so I don’t use it everyday, but on days I do, my skin feels and looks very even toned, bright and smooth. I do have to followup with a moisturizer though, since it can leave skin a bit dry and love the Goat Milk Moisturizing Cream for that. Its quite a lightweight cream that could be used all through the year. Sinks in super fast and is great for under makeup. If you are a skincare lover or want a great value set with some of Kate Somerville’s best sellers, do give this nice little kit a try!

Marc Jacobs Holiday 2016 | About Last Night Style Eye Con No.20 Eye Shadow Palette, About Lash Night 3-Piece Mascara and Eyeliner Collection

Marc Jacobs Holiday 2016 | About Last Night Style Eye Con No.20 Eye Shadow Palette, About Lash Night 3-Piece Macara and Eyeliner Collection


Two gorgeous pieces I’m loving from the Marc Jacobs Holiday'16 lineup are the About Last Night Style Eye Con No.20 Eye Shadow Palette ($99; sephora.com) and the About Lash Night 3-Piece Mascara and Eyeliner Collection ($36; sephora.com). About Last Night is a beautiful palette with an array of shades ranging from everyday neutrals to mattes and shimmery textures. The packaging & design of the palette is beautiful and the quality of the eyeshadows are amazing - great color payoff, fabulous blendability and hardly any fallout. I’ve used the neutrals in this palette quite a lot and they wear really well even without a primer, which I almost, always forget. Overall, a fantastic palette to check out this holiday season!

About Lash Night 3-Piece Mascara and Eyeliner Collection is another great value set that comes with a full sizes of the O!Mega Lash Volumizing Mascara, Lame Noir Ultra-Glittering Mascara and a deluxe size of the Highliner Gel Eye Crayon in Blacquer. Love everything in this kit. The O! Mega Lash is a great mascara for super long, thick lashes. The Lame Noir is great to just coat the tips of your lashes, although not something I’d wear on a daily, basis, it still is nice to add a little something over your mascara. The Highliner is another great eyeliner that I love and Blacquer is a deep dark black with a nice sheen!

Elemis Superfood Facial Oil

Elemis Superfood Facial Oil


The Superfood Facial Oil ($72; shop.nordstrom.com) is one of Elemis’ newest additions to their skincare line. Its a nourishing, hydrating, smoothing oil for dry, aging skin. It comes packaged in a small glass bottle, and I use about 2-3 drops for my face and neck. Its a very rich, yet quick absorbing oil and one that helps plump and add a lot of glow back to dull looking skin. Its a concentrated blend of plant based superfoods and has omega-rich Broccoli, Flax Seed and Daikon Radish to name a few. I love how this is a one step oil for me and doesn’t require moisturizer on top, even though my skin leans towards the drier side this time of the year. Its very hydrating, yet feels weightless and non greasy. I use it about 2-3 times a week in rotation with my other skincare and a little goes a really long way with this one.  I rub whatever is leftover onto my cuticles and it does a fabulous job of keeping them healthy looking.The scent could take some time getting used to, but that apart, I’d highly recommend this if you are looking for a hydrating, rich facial oil for the colder months ahead!
