Favorite Winter Products

More than any other time of the year, the winter/Christmas season is when I start to reach for specific products. Red lips, golden eyes, and wintery scents take over my routine. Most of these products are tried and true favorites, with a few new ones thrown into the mix. I featured most of these products in my "Get Ready With Me" video, so click here if you'd like to check that out!

This is one of those new favorites. I love sweet scents, but I usually stay away from the cupcake, overly sugary fragrances. Vanilla Bean Noel from Bath & Body Works is sweet, without being over the top.

I love Half Baked from Urban Decay pretty much year round, but it's perfect for Christmastime. It is just the perfect amount of shimmer. No disco ball eyes here.

This is one of my favorite products ever. I put this Rose Salve on every night before bed, and it really helps to sooth & hydrate dry lips that come with the cold weather. It's also great to put on any dry patches. Can't take any chances with the cold!

This is the perfect nail duo for Christmas. O.P.I.'s I Love You Cherry much is great if you want a brighter, bolder look & Nailtini's Champagne is a bit more subtle, but still very festive. I have complete reviews of both polishes here & here (Champagne coming on Friday, sorry!).

Taylor Swift's Wonderstruck Enchanted is one of those perfectly balanced scents. It's sweet & sugary with a nice warmth to it. I got this last year for Christmas, and though I wear it all through the year, it's the perfect Christmas scent.

I've had this color for years, and it has become my favorite, bright red lip color. It's Love That Red from Revlon, and it is the perfect Christmas color.

I hardly ever wear eyeliner, but it's nice to pull it out during Christmastime. I usually just blend it in to my upper lash line. It's a nice deep blue, so it isn't as harsh as a black liner. Plus, it compliments Half Baked perfectly!

There has been so much talk about this product, but it's well deserved. Maybelline's Color Tatoo in Bad to the Bronze a beautiful color worn on it's own, or under some fun shimmery colors for Christmas.

Last, but not least, is Revlon's Romantic Balm Stain. You can wear this sheer, or layer it on-- either way it is lovely. It also stays on forever, so it would be great for any holiday party.

Thanks for checking out my favorites! Let me know any products you think I should try out!



  1. I love the Maybelline color tattoos, and the one you mentioned is my favorite one. I use it as an eyeshadow base, works great!

    1. Definitely a great one! I've loved pairing it with half baked as well. So shimmery & fun! Thanks for checking it out!


Thank you, thank you, thank you for your sweet comments. I read every one and try to respond to them all!
