Fragrant Friday - Tiffany & Co. Eau de Parfum Holiday Edition

From the House of Tiffany comes a sparkling new signature fragrance for women available just for the holidays:

Tiffany & Co. Eau de Parfum Mirrored Holiday Edition - 50ml - $125 - a modern, artisanal scent that is as exhilarating and inspiring as love itself with a top note of vert de mandarine; heart note of noble iris; and base notes of patchouli and musk.

Celebrate the joy of the season with this limited edition fragrance in a collectible bottle with brilliant reflective glass faceting inspired by the house's iconic diamond cuts and classic Tiffany Blue around the neck.

Not only does the packaging make it a lovely gift but I find it's one of those scents that everyone seems to love - a little floral, a little fruity and a little warm - without being too intense or disappearing too soon - just all around satisfying!

Available at Hudson's Bay stores across Canada as well as Tiffany & Co. boutiques - and for that extra-special touch, the bottle can be custom engraved making it an especially thoughtful gift!

Get lips winter ready with Blistex, Fresh and Flexitol!

Blistex Conditioning Lip Serum - 8.5g - $4.99 - unlike a usual balm, this serum delivers emollients and skin-beneficial ingredients to penetrate and sustain inner layers of the lip. The formula contains nutrient-rich oils: olive, avaocado and omega-3 fatty acids - for enhanced conditioning along with an  amino acid combination: lauric, oleic, palmitic and myristic - for immediate conditioning and  Vitamin E - to leave lips replenished.

I'm a fan of the pump dispenser - you need to apply so little, that any other delivery method would just end up wasting all kinds of product - just one drop daily and you can look forward to lips that look healthy and feel silky!

Available now at drug, mass and grocery retailers across Canada.
Fresh Sugar Lip Wonder Drops Advanced Therapy - 5ml - $32 -  a daily, lightweight, water-based gel treatment that gently exfoliates, softens, and smoothes dry, flaky lips to keep them looking flawless and ready for lipstick. Enriched with AHAs - a blend of sugar and natural fruit extracts - helps to retexturize the lips while leaving them soft and radiant and hibiscus flower extract - helps to gently refine the look of the lips' surface through non-mechanical exfoliation, improving signs of damage for a youthful look.

Available at Sephora and sephora.ca.
Flexitol Lip Balm For Severely Dry Lips - 10g - $5.49 - helps to alleviate soreness and discomfort, and visibly softens and smooths lips quickly. With a rich emollient base and 2.5% synthesized urea for better penetration to hydrate dry lips and enriched with menthol and clove leaf oil to effectively relieve pain caused by chapped lips for lips that look and feel better in just 1 day!

They call the palette universally flattering but this one is very cool toned so you might not love it if you have warm toned skin - not to worry - you can also choose from the Sunlit Dream Palette which contains warmer sandy golds and tans or the Insta-Sculpt Palette which includes traditional highlighting and contouring shades along with a shimmery peach blush.
