@TeamBIC I couldn't find the Tatcha The Pearl Tinted Eye Illuminating Treatment anywhere near me since it's being discontinued but my dad was a sweetheart and found it at a Sephora by his house (in a different state). He even asked me how many I wanted so I wouldn't be without. He was so happy when he got to use a discount, too.

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

Aw, that was so sweet of your dad โค๏ธ๐Ÿฅฐ @makeitup305 

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

@makeitup305  I love that! Can he pick one up for me too? ๐Ÿ˜‚

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

Your Dad is so sweet, @makeitup305

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

That is so sweet @makeitup305!โค๏ธ

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

@makeitup305 that was so sweet of your Dad. 

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

That's so precious @makeitup305 , how thoughtful of you Dad!

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

Oh man, Iโ€™ve been waiting patiently for these, but shipping delays! It said Friday and I thought Iโ€™d have it this weekend to celebrate finishing a big meeting for work Saturday. Initially,I  wasnโ€™t expecting til Monday, but then got excited by the almost here mail, followed by sad, lol.

I have a dyson airwrap but Iโ€™m debating ordering the blow dryer and/or the straightener. Any thoughts?!? I canโ€™t decide which one Iโ€™d prefer or get the most use out of! 

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

@Achickadee03 I purchased the blow dryer. It is expensive but I am very happy with it. Check out my review if you would like!

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

@TeamBIC I was able to pick up a few great items and use the discount Tatcha The Kissu Lip Mask Tatcha Dewy Cleanse + Hydrate Youth To The People Superfood Gentle Antioxidant Refillable Cleanser belif The True Cream Moisturizing Bomb With Oat Husk and Vitamin B These were all restock so it was great to receive a discount

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

The #Youth To The People Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser is my absolute fave! I recently tried the #Youth to the People Superfood Air-Whip Moisture Cream & it's wonderful too! (Sorry! Idk why it didn't tag it! Tagged below tho! ๐Ÿ™) Worth a try if you need a moisturizer. I'd never had a big breakout from a skincare product before but did after trying It! Confidence in a Cream And I broke out like crazy! Sadly it was too late to return it by the time I made sure it was the culprit! ๐Ÿ˜ญThe Youth to the People Air-Whip Moisture Cream is exactly what it says! It's light but feels super good going on & you know it's loaded with super foods! I totally recommend both Youth to the People products!! 

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

Okay, so I maybe spent wayyyy too much time making my first ever reel/tik tok (Iโ€™ve been an avid non-TikToker for years) ๐Ÿคฃ but here are the fruits of my labour:

 

This Malin+Goetz set is a gift I got my grandpa. I kind of wish I got two because it smells so good and who doesnโ€™t need some hand soap and lotion these days??

PMG Divine Romance lipstick has been out for a while now, but I finally got it and swatched it! Iโ€™ve been really into the blotted lip look lately due to mask-wearing. I think this shade would look so beautiful blotted on the center of the lips! Chefโ€™s kiss!๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿผ

Briogeo Honey Hydration Donโ€™t Despair Repair Hair Kit is such a crowd pleaser, especially with the adorable teddy bear bottle! I hope they continue to make this an annual offering!

Thatโ€™s all I got for the sale so far, but who knows? Maybe Iโ€™ll slip one more in tomorrow! I kind of want the Nudestix cheek balm 100 point perk ๐Ÿ˜…

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

So fun @Guessgal ! Is the lip this intense or just the pic on my screen maybe?! I thought it was quite a bit lighter but this looks so gorgeous! Iโ€™ve skipped over it clearly if so! Thanks for swatch. Love that little bear too. Great giftie idea! ๐Ÿฅฐ 

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

@Sunnysmom I was thinking the same thing when I read your comment last week and finally found some time today to do some lip swatches to find out! Itโ€™s actually pretty dark in the tube like the pic I initially posted above, but the tone does alter a bit on my lips depending on lighting. Itโ€™s significantly lighter in sunlight and leans more rich fuchsia (although I think the sun will have this effect on most colours). When the clouds rollover, itโ€™s a deeper berry. It is also on the darker end of the spectrum in warm, lightbulb lightingโ€ฆ not sure if this is helpfulโ€ฆ I know it got a lot of negative reviews since the official PMG photos depicted it a lot lighter than it actually was. It was also these reviews that led me to purchase it bc I appreciate the darker colour ๐Ÿคฃ hahaha

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

That's a Fabulous berry shade! Berry is so flattering. Rather similar to (d/c'd) 'Sorry not Sorry' LuxeTrance. PMG l.s. are quite pigmented, as well they should. 

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

Beautiful! ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’• @Guessgal 

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

Well first of all my goodness @Guessgal your lips and you and your pic are truly gorgeous! ๐Ÿฅฐ I love the looks of it too and the dark factor would lead me to definitely buy it! Ha. Funny others wanted it lighter! Sometimes these feel a little dry on me so I would have to use a balm under if so maybe. Do u find that. Doesnโ€™t look it from your pic tho. ๐Ÿ˜Š What you said totally makes sense and youโ€™re so sweet to show me, thank you! ๐Ÿ˜˜ (Oh and p.s. I named a bespoke Bite lippie โ€˜Chefโ€™s Kissโ€™! โ˜บ๏ธ)

Re: Holiday 2021 Shopping Advice Thread: Whatโ€™s in Your Basket?

Aww thank you @Sunnysmom @sister13 ! 
The lipstick has a weightless, barely there feeling that some mattes have, but I wouldnโ€™t consider it drying. My lips didnโ€™t crack after wearing it for a good 7hrs so Iโ€™m pleased. I get what you mean though, as it doesnโ€™t have the smooth slip of a cream lipstick. 

I love the name you chose for the Bite lippie! So fitting for a custom name ๐Ÿ’›
