Amika Nourishing Mask // I tried out this mask a couple days ago and I love it so far. It’s great for giving my hair of bit of extra pampering on days where I can tell it’s a bit beat up. With all the holiday parties coming up, I know I’ll be teasing and twisting my hair into all kinds of styles an it will be great to have this hair mask to give my locks a bit more love.
Cynthia Rowley Beauty Cream Lip Stain // This sample came in the cutest little packaging, perfect for the teeny tiny purses that I carry on a night out. It’s a super creamy texture on the lips, almost like a balm, but it had a playful pink color to it. It did a light stain, but nothing too intense. I prefer more standout shades so I may have to pass this product on to my sister to try, but I’m sure she’ll love it.
Gilchrist & Soames Spa Therapy Body Lotion // This lotion was a bit of a miss for me, but it may just be because I have a cornucopia of amazing body lotions already. It did have a nice marine-y smell to it and it was very light, but it just didn’t do much for me in the moisturizing department. I’ll have to pass this one along as well.
The Balm Cindy-Lou Manizer // I absolutely love The Balm’s Mary Lou-Manizer so I was so excited to get a small sample of the Cindy-Lou shade. This one is more a peachy pink in color so it will definitely add a bit of color to my face. This sample is perfect to put in my ‘on the go’ touch up case so I can sweep a bit on after work before heading out to meet up with friends.
Dang Coconut Chips // Coconut chips…i’m intrigued? I had never heard or seen this chips around before. I’ve had shaved coconut, but never had coconut in chip form so I’ll definitely have to try these out. I’m always looking for healthy afternoon snacks for an afternoon perk-me-up.
Royal Apothic Cuppa Cuppa Firming Tea Treatment Mask // I’ve heard amazing things about this clay mask that has been infused with a blend of exotic teas. I haven’t tried it yet, but I’m dying too. The reviews said it did an amazing job of firming and smoothing your skin, all the while giving it a soft glow. Woah, it gets a lot done in only 8 minutes.
I love this ad because I could totally see myself running through a similar situation. Maybe not so much to the extent that I would hurry to fashion a grappling hook out of my newly bought beauties, but it would definitely be in my realm of possibility (it looked really chilly outside).
Also, I was totally obsessed with the Mulled Wine Cedar Street Mini Maise she’s sporting in the beginning of the ad. I had my eye on it at a Kate Spade event I attended last week. It would be so perfect for toting around my night out necessities. It’s definitely going on my holiday wish list!
She knows how to make her own fun.
What do you think of the Anna Kendrick and Kate Spade pairing?
