On the sixth day of Christmas 
WyoSparkles gave to me:

6 Yummy Lotions!
4 Fabulous Eye Primers
And a Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation--So Pretty!

We are definitely lotion-aholics over here in dry Wyoming...especially in the winter, and find lotions by Bath and Body Works, Mary Kay, Shea Terra, Carol's Daughter, Design Line and Cuccio Naturale to be lifesavers for days when our skin takes a super dry turn.

What are your favorite lotions and moisturizers?

The 12 Days of WyoSparkles Christmas...Day Three!


In the busy world of blogging/living life/trying to work, I'm sure that all of you have scheduled blog posts from time to time...without knowing that when your posts magically shows up, there will be much more important things going on that overshadow makeup and beauty and Christmas lists.

We are horrified at the thought of everything that is happening in Connecticut today.  Our hearts break for the victims at Sandy Hook Elementary School, and for their families.  None of us can understand when things like this happen...which speaks well to our own humanity, but does little to provide comfort in a time when tragedies like this continue to happen in our world.  It's just so sad that we live in a society where the phrase "another school shooting" is something that we have to say...ever.

We focus a lot, on a daily basis, on makeup and laughter and fashion mishaps galore.  Today...we are reminded of the things that really matter.  Our families...our loved ones...all those people who care for us, and for whom we care.  

If you're a prayful person...please join us and pray for those who are hurting in Connecticut...we can never know the journey that they will have to make before they begin to heal.  Also, make sure that your loved ones know who they are...please take care of one another.

We love you...


On the third day of Christmas 
WyoSparkles gave to me:

3 MAC Lip Glasses!
2 Favorite Palettes!
And a Revlon Colorstay Whipped Foundation--So Pretty!

We're 100% in love with these MAC Lip Glasses...super shiny, and fab colors!  What's your favorite lip gloss?

Have a Sweet Holiday, with Lorac's Eye Candy Full Face Collection!

As much as we love everything about the holidays…twinkling Christmas lights…colorful wrapping paper & ribbons…and delicious treats in every shape and size…we have to admit that almost every aspect of Holiday Joy comes with a downside once the season is over.  Darling twinkling lights have to be taken down and somehow fit back into the tiny boxes from which they came.  Wrapping paper is ridiculously awkward to store, and we know we’re going to want to just buy all new paper next year…but we still find ourselves rearranging our closets to make room for this year’s rolls.  And don’t even get us started on Holiday treats, which are such a delight all through December, but can lead to major regret and borderline depression when we’re setting our resolutions come January.

What, though, is there to be done?  It’s not like we are going to go without our lights…without our fun wrapping paper.  And when it comes to treats…what are we supposed to do…show restraint??

Luckily our friends at Lorac understand that our love for sweet things MUST be addressed…and have found a way to treat us for this holiday season…without the need to wear only yoga pants by the end of the season.  (although, the thought of wearing yoga pants every day is sometimes a little bit dreamy, to be honest!)

We’re thrilled to present our latest Lorac goodies, released for the 2012 Holiday Season, which take our sugar loving breath away!

Ladies this…is the Lorac Eye Candy Full Face Collection…a visual delight that brings to mind rich chocolate confections without a single waistline sabotaging calorie!  :)

Isn’t it fabulous?  Don’t you just want to eat it up?  Don’t, though…don’t eat it.  Use it.  Apply it.  Love it.  Get your sweet treat fix without breaking a single resolution…and look fabulous the whole time!  Let’s take a closer look:

Mesmerizing Dark Chocolate Cream Eye Liner Palette

Oooh La La Vanilla Nude Eye Shadow Palette

Caramel Love Affair Golden Eye Shadow Palette

Tantalizing Cocoa Bronze Eye Shadow Palette

Blackberry Truffle Seduction Smokey Eye Shadow Palette

Indulge in Berry Kisses Cheek & Lip Tint Palette

We cannot wait to give all of these gorgeous and tasty looking palettes a try, and have the highest of Holiday hopes for all of them!

Have you picked up this collection?  Which delicious palette is your favorite?  What is your favorite Holiday Treat?

November Favorites!

November is a time when we celebrate all the things that we are thankful for, and we are definitely thankful for a handful of products that have helped us find our happy (pretty) places over the past month. 

Without further delay, we're excited to present our November Favorites!

K's Faves from November:

Great Value Berry Pomegranate (drink mix pour in)-- Winter in Wyoming = watch out, your skin, your hair, your lips, your cuticles, your ....well basically everything in your life is gonna be dry!  haha...So I stay hydrated with plenty of water and discovered these tasty tasty drink mixes...delish!!

Missha Perfect Cover B.B. Cream--This stuff freaked me out with my first use because my face was sort of pale white/gray, but I ended up using it as a primer and ohhh my goodness...LOVE this stuff!!!  It created the perfect palette for me to create my f.o.t.d.  :)
Garnier Fructis -Sleek & Shine Flat Iron Perfector --Added protection from my heat styling tools...this stuff certainly does its job.  Can't live without this stuff...and it's nearly empty!  eeek!

Schwarzkopf BC Repair Rescue --Have I mentioned that Winter dries my hair out?  I got this stuff in my voxbox and I can tell's a delight!!  I love how it leaves my hair soft and soo moisturized.  It also helps seal the ends of my hair...added protection!  Yay!

Carol's Daughter Ecstasy (shea souffle) --  Are you seeing my theme?  Moisturizing everywhere!  This shea souffle has a yummy sugared strawberry, island mango and Egyptian musk scent...mmmm and it states it's "For Dry to Extra Dry Skin."  Anything with shea butter is a bonus in my book and this stuff ...yep it's amazing!!  

Bungalow bath and body - whipped soap (cake batter scented) -- Mmmm..this stuff literally makes me want to eat it!  Luckily I don't...and I just use it to scrub my hands.  haha  :)  But let me tell's quite the whipped soap!  It's seriously amazing!   I love love love whipped soaps and sugar scrubs - I'd almost say I'm obsessed with soft soft hands.  p.s.  this stuff is made right here in Wyoming!  You can find it on, just tell them Miss Etta's (my mom's gift shop) sent you.

Solar Oil  -- Or as I like to call it "saver of my cuticles"  haha..sadly I only have a tiny bottle right now and I'm literally scraping the bottom...MUST get more!  This product keeps my cuticles right in shape and looking oh so pretty!

Sugar Lip Treatment by Fresh Inc. -- As I mentioned...dry lips...ugh!  This perfect purse sized lip treatment keeps my lips soft for several hours...THANK you Fresh Inc.  :)  I got this from the Sephora birthday gift deal.  Love it!  Oh and my 2nd favorite part...the screw on lid - keeps it fresh and clean from debris and the lid doesn't fall off!  Woohoo!

MAC creamsheen lipglass (color saturation) and dazzleglass creme (demure)  -- These two glosses were in the "Guilty Passions" line recently - they came with 2 others, but these 2 definitely haven't left my side since receiving them.  Perfect Fall berry colored gloss and the perfect pink gloss...Definitely a must have!!

Girly hair clips (bows and cute flowers) --  Breaking away from the "moisturizing" theme - BUT since my hair is shiny and silky, why not add a little fun to this beautiful coif?  haha...I've seriously had way too much fun with cute little hair accessories this month.  So feminine and cute!  Try it, you'll like it!

J's Faves from November:

Make Me Cool Travel Set by Sigma--I haven't been doing any traveling as of late, but I've been using the heck out of the brushes in this set.  Love Sigma brushes, and this little set has been making the rounds in my morning routine. 

Milani Baked Powder Blushes in Fantistico Mauve & Dolce Pink--I have a trillion blushes at my disposal (slight exaggeration) but I find myself reaching for this duo almost daily.  I love how well they blend together, and compliment almost every color scheme I work with. 

Glitterball Palette by MUA--Well, the third time was a charm, as it took three tries from MUA to get this palette to me intact.  Stupid crumbley palette making postal service!  All the waiting on my part, and re-shipping on MUA's part, was WELL worth it, however, as this sparkley dynamo has become one of my go to palettes this month.  Super shimmery and love love!

MAC Extra Dimension Eye Shadow in Divine Blue--We all know that MAC is generally perfection, and this metallic turquoise/sea-green/teal/blue shade is extra dreamy.  :)

Vincent Longo Duo Lip Pencil in Roseberry and Spring Rose--Anytime I can get two products for the size of one in my purse, I'm generally smitten, but it's extra helpful that either one of these colors seems to compliment and blend with every lip color I favor. (oops...not pictured above)
MultiTask Wet/Dry Powder Foundation by Prestige--Still super happy with this powder, which helps me stay matte and looking fresh all day long.

Shine Eraser Oil Blotting Sheets by e.l.f.--For days when I do need a little help with extra shine, especially on my forehead, these blotting sheets do just the trick.

Lock 'N Load Makeup Setting Mist by Kat Von D--Actually finished this setting spray off this month...time to reorder!  I love the cucumbery scent and the mist goes on super fine every time.  :)

What products made your all-star lists this month?  Anything we should rush to try in December?
