Barefaced Chic Giveaway

In lieu of a featured outfit this week, my special co-host, Michelle of The Barefaced Chic has a fabulous giveaway for you!  I'll let her introduce herself.

The Barefaced Chic is a quirky, imaginative lifestyle blog that offers a slightly wacky sanctuary in a sea of sensibility.  My mission is to bring my readers a frequent dose of beauty, fashion, lifestyle, health, sound advice, and laughs.  And, in this sometimes cookie cutter world, the aim of The Barefaced Chic is to be the chocolate raspberry creme brulee!

With a no nonsense approach, within the features on my blog, mature women are encouraged to celebrate themselves, love their quirks and feel happy in their own skin; hence, The Barefaced Chic.

Warning: my blog does not believe in 'age appropriate,' it believes in 'person appropriate.'  If you're looking for tips on dressing for your age then The Barefaced Chic may not be the blog for you.  Want tips on how to dress for you?  Come on in, the water's fine!

November Ipsy Glam Bag Review

November 15 Glam Bag
Jelly Pong Pong Liquid Gossamer (0.27 oz  ~$23): This is probably one of the best highlighters out there.  Unlike most highlighters, it has a peachy undertone, so it's great for paler skin.

Figs & Rouge Mattifying Emulsion (0.5 oz ~$18): This was my favorite product in this month's bag. It's a mattifying pore refiner.  I love wearing it under my makeup like a primer.

SmashBox Full Exposure Mascara (3 mL ~ $10): This is one of my favorite mascaras ever.  However, I already have like 2 or 3 travel sizes.  I only have 2 eyes and there just aren't enough days in the week.

Crown Oval Concealer Brush ($7.45): This has quickly become one of my go-to make up brushes.  It's super soft and perfect for applying undereye concealer.

treStiQue Mini Matt Lip Crayon ( ~ $14) (in Chile Red):  This was my least favorite item this month.  The color was ok, but it was super drying and the crayon is so thin it's difficult to apply in one swoop.  You wind up having to color your lips in like a coloring book.

This was actually my highest value Glam Bag at $75.45!  What really drove this one up was the full size highlighter.  I almost wonder if that was put in there by mistake...haha!

Ipsy Deets
  • $10 per month
  • 5 beauty products, some full sized (2-3) in each bag
  • 1 cosmetic bag

A Cold Beach Day

The Scot and I took advantage of the the unseasonably warm weather this weekend and journeyed down to Asbury Park.  I love the beach during colder weather.  It's so peaceful.  It was so relaxing to just stroll leisurely down the boardwalk (and take blog photos without people staring).
The temperature was just cool enough to require some jacket layering and cozy socks, but not too cold to require covering up my carefully planned outfit with a giant coat.
And speaking of cozy socks...I love these wool socks from Tabbi Socks.  They are super warm and soft. They're meant to be worn as thigh highs, but I love to slouch them down.
Sadly, the weather is stating to turn, so my cozy socks are going to have to be traded in for cozy stockings or cozy pants.

Space Stripe Selma Dress: Kate Spade (similar here & here)
Sunglasses: Kate Spade (similar, worn)
Booties: Target (similar, worn)
Socks: Tabbi Socks (exact)
Bracelet: Onecklace  (exact)
