Happy Thanksgiving weekend my Curvy beauties! So the time has come to countdown to holiday season and gift giving/receiving. This is one of my favorite times of year because I love to see the gorgeous holiday palettes and collections that come out. With every price point in mind, there is something for everyone. Today I am going to share some of my favs with you. This is only the beginning, as I will be reviewing some holiday launches, collections, etc. I will also be working on editor’s picks/gift guides for hair, makeup, skin and nail care. There will also be a winter skin care series on its way. So without further delay, here is part one of a selection of some of my picks that are perfect for gifts and wish lists alike:


Urban Decay Book of Shadows IV – $64.00

This much-awaited collection of 16 neutral, smoldering and vibrant Eyeshadows (10 never-before-seen!) features a Book of Shadows first – a portable speaker and how-to videos revealing five new looks that we created exclusively for this palette. In this phenomenal cache, a range of shimmery hues flash subtle brilliance while glittery shades tempt the eye. White, taupe and nude tones cast an ethereal glow, alongside pale greens and blues with the sheen of sea glass. Wear these airy shades to elevate a wide range of day looks, and then create smudged and deeply shadowed nighttime effects with this palette’s array of deep blacks, greys, browns, purples and greens. Also included are a full-size 24/7 Waterproof Liquid Eyeliner, a travel-size Eyeshadow Primer Potion and a travel-size Supercurl Curling Mascara.
