My 2015 Christmas Beauty Treats

Hey everybody! I hope you had a great Christmas and "Santa" brought you everything you wanted ;) 
I want to share some new beauty treats I've added to my makeup collection. 

Kate Spade Magnolia Bakery Cosmetic Cases

I love fanciful, whimsical (food themed beauty) cosmetic cases & pouches.  Kate Spade collaborated on a collection with world renowned Magnolia Bakery in New York City. Their treats look so delicious on their website. Has anyone tried them? Well anyway, I fell in love with these cosmetic cases. All of them are in-scripted with the words "yes, please" "with a cherry on top" and cute cherries & cupcakes on a mint green background.

Anna Sui Heart Vanity Case & Star Lipstick

Every year, Anna Sui creates a Limited Edition Christmas item for ASOS. See the one from last year HERE. It's a cute little black patent leather bag with red & white hearts. Anna Sui is written in script. This included a true red lipstick (shaped like a star) in a classic Anna Sui lipstick casing.

Lip Kit By Kylie in Candy K, Dolce K and True Brown K

I plan on reviewing and swatching these Lip Kit By Kylie liquid lipstick shades really soon. They were really hard to get. I lucked up and got them the second time they went on sale. I definitely wasn't going to buy them on eBay. LOL I wish I would've scored them the first time they went on sale, because I would've been a very rich girl. One went for 10K LOL Again, I'll let you know my thoughts on these.

by Alegory Cosmetic Organizers

Many of you know, I started renovating my home in 2015. I'm happy to say the kitchen, 2 bathrooms, bedroom and laundry room are complete! My makeup room is almost complete. I just need to order a mirror & chairs for it. So all that is left for 2016 is the living room, another bedroom & enclosed porch. Well anyway, I ordered some byAlegory acrylic cosmetic organizers for my makeup room. I purchased them to keep my lipsticks, lipglosses etc. in order. This is just one box, but there are many more. I hope I ordered enough. LOL I'll do a YouTube video showing my makeup room (it's small) & organization once I get everything together. These organizers are REALLY nice and of excellent quality. They also packed them really well (was worried they would break). But that was not the case :) Can't wait to show you!

I'll show all of these in detail on my Snapchat later! Find me at averysweetblog!
Have a great week!

  16. I'm shocked to hear one of Kylie's lipsticks went for 10K, that's crazy! So glad you managed to pick up yours when they went on sale for the second time - looking forward to seeing the colours on you :) I've got so much love for your gorgeous Kate Spade cosmetic cases too!

  17. I can't wait to see your make-up room when it's finished, Kim! I have dreams of having a dressing room some day - that day hasn't arrived yet, but when it does, it will be glorious. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas :)

  18. I'm very excited to see that review of lip kit by Kylie...(I'm still not sure what Kardashian she is but I know she is one of the younger sisters so I'm totally clueless)....Anyway, I'm really fascinated by brown lipsticks right now.

    Happy New Year sweetie.

  19. Wow, you've got some beautiful makeup goodies here, girl! I'm swooning over everything; that lipstick case is so stinkin' cute! Let us know if all the hype surrounding the Kylie Jenner lip kit is worth it, I'm curious to know your thoughts once you've tried them :)

    I hope you're having a wonderful day so far, beauty!



  20. The Magnolia Bakery and Kate Spade collection is very pretty. I would like that one.

  21. Those are some amazing scores! I loved reading about the renovations you are doing as well. Sounds like quite the project! I cannot believe one of those packs of lips by Kylie went for 10K on ebay! Dying to hear what you think of the product over all. Sending love! xo, Ellese


    PS. I love magnolias, and they are pretty amazing.

  22. Your Kate Spade cosmetic case is the cutest! And I'm interested in knowing what you think of the Lip Kit. I can't believe one sold for $10K. That's ridiculous.

  23. Nice items Kim! I think the Kate Spade cosmetic cases are so cute! I hope you had a Merry Christmas!

  24. Can't wait to see how you organized all of your make-up stuff and what's more, I curious about these lip kits by Kylie, they sound interesting:)

    Hope you had great Christmas dear Kim,

  25. Looking forward to seeing your renovations Kim, and glad to hear that you are nearly finished with it all. Here's to a wonderful and very prosperous 2016. The organisers are great. I only have two, but love the ones that I got.
    Happy New Year! <3

  29. Oh it looks like Santa was good to you this year Kim :) No surprise since you're such a good girl ;p The Kate Spade set is absolutely adorable! I have tired Magnolia bakery and I have to say they're a little overrated in my opinion. The frosting on their cupcakes is just too thick and sweet and a little greasy. Billy's is my better IMHO. Hope you had a splendid Christmas girl!
