Savannah Bee Southern Lip Balm Trio

Love lip balms with great flavors? The folks at Savannah Bee have a tasty Southern influenced trio .

Sweet Tea, Key Lime and Peach all taste and smell pretty delish.  Sweet Tea is my favorite . The smell of fresh brewed tea , how good is that ? And now in lip balm form. Love it.

All of these are super hydrating with  coconut oil, olive oil, cocoa, shea butter, and hemp seed along . Beeswax, honey, propolis and royal jelly  are in there too along with natural essential oils. They have no tint or sheen  and are smooth on lips.

The company doesn't use  parabens, petroleum, or animal testing .

Grab the trip for 10.50  at

YSL Couture Kajal 3 in1 Kohl Eyeliner- Fall 2015

Part two of  a look at YSL Fall is the new Couture Kajal 3 in 1 Kohl Eyeliner . ( Metal Clash Eye Palette here )

I love just looking at these. They are so chic and stylish. Once the lid is off, you get a deep pigmented eyeliner.   Couture Kajal pencils apply smoothly without any tug and can make a thin line or a thicker one or  use as eye shadow.

These are long wear and have done well on me.YSL says up to 12 hour wear. Unless you count the time I tried them , went into the pool in  95 degree temps with blasting humidity.  Don't try that at home.

These are self sharpening and YSL recommends applying with the side to keep the point sharp.  That might be easier said than done, but I love the sharp point so we'll try.

There are four shades, all shown except black ( N°1 Noir Ardent ). There are two blues and a gorg blackened green .

 N°1 Noir Ardent
 N° 2 Bleu Cobalt
 N° 3 Bleu P├ętrole
 N° 4 Vert Anglais

YSL Couture Kajal 3 in 1 Kohl Eyeliner is $ 35

YSL Metal Clash Couture Eye Palette - Fall 2015

YSL's fall collection has a lot to love. Two standouts are new kohl eye pencils ( review coming soon) and this new eye palette .

Metal Clash has a lot of browns and bronzes which is why it gets my vote. The rich pinkish burgundy shade isn't too bad either. Mixed with any of the browns it's a great fall look. The  golden bronze shade  has a lot of shimmer,  while the darkest brown ( center)  has a hint of simmer and the medium one  is more satin.

In general I find YSL shadows to be ones that last really well on me and they have  rich pigment. Metal Clash gives you  five fall color choices  all in one with several shades working just as well now.  The badass studded metal looking compact cover doesn't hurt either.

YSL Couture Palette Metal Clash  is  $ 60 and LE . Available now at Nordstrom and soon on
