Get Holiday Ready with Glam Beauty Board

I am ecstatic come every Glam Beauty Board season. Every Glam Beauty Board package comes stuffed with new beauty goodies that I've never tried before. A few of these items have already made it into my daily routine.

Glam Beauty Board Makeup Package
The makeup included in this Beauty Board package includes: Physician's Formula pH Matchmaker, Susan Posnick Color Essential Moisturizing Lipstick, Buxom Lash Mascara, Almay Smart Shade Mousse Foundation in 200 (light/medium), Almay Intense i-color Liquid Shadow Color Primer, Almay Powder Shadow, Too Faced Glamour to Go Spun Sugar Edition

This package includes many items perfect for the holidays, including two Susan Posnick lipsticks. Susan Posnick lipsticks packaging is fabulous and the top snaps onto magnetically. The shades are both lovely, but I will most likely be going with the red London to keep in sync with the holiday spirits.

The Almay Smart Shade foundation included has managed to make its way into my morning routine. It's both dewy and lightweight. The color looks scary white initially, but matches my skin the more I blend it.

The Almay eyeshadows and color primers are a perfect combination. The liquid shadow/primer is a light color that makes a great base for the powder eyeshadow. The shades are wearable and can be worn lightly or built to deeper colors.

The Too Faced Glamour to Go is packaged beautifully, as Too Faced products tend to be. It's portable and perfect to pop into the handbag. It comes with eyeshadow, highlighter, bronzer and lip gloss!

The Physician's Formula pH Matchmaker is a gorgeous compact blush that comes with mirror and brush. A little goes a long way with this blush. If you are looking for rosy pink with slight shimmers, this blush does the job perfectly.

The Buxom Lash Mascara has the most interesting wand shape. It looks like it vibrates even when not moving. I love it and think it separates lashes better than most mascara wands!

The Glam Beauty Board package also included a few skin care items! The Philosophy Full of Promise Dual-Action Restoring Cream is currently my morning and nighttime moisturizer. It feels very rich, but seeps into the skin quickly and does not break me out. I think it might be a keeper.

I've been using it all week and it still looks full! I've only started using the Vichy Dark Spot Corrector, but I am crossing my fingers. It contains Cermide, LHA and Vitamin C - all ingredients I like to use to even out my skin tone.

The Goldfaden MD Facial Cleanser is a good cleanser for nighttime. It is made for those with sensitive skin like me, but it removes makeup and dead skin cells as well. I go crazy with facial cleansing, so it's always a good idea to use a hypoallergenic and gentle cleanser such as this.

Philosophy Living Grace Perfume has a very clean scent with a warm musk. It also contains fresh neroli and Lily of the Valley. The scent makes me feel warm and at home.

Umberto Beverly Hills Repair Treatment Masque is a thick masque to be applied to wet hair. I have dry and damaged hair, so I am always looking for good hair masks to wear.

Burt's Bees Ultimate Care Hand Cream definitely feels luxurious. I have a lot of lotions and hand creams, but somehow I am gravitating towards this one. I now keep it next to my desk while I work. It is very rich without all the synthetic or fruity aromas.

Among my favorite are the China Glaze nail polishes! They came just in time for my Christmas nails. The Pizzazz glitter makes a great topcoat over the red polish or it can be used alone with a little fun design!
