No, I'm not talking about another celebrity photo scandal. I'm talking about this:

That's right. Urban Decay has decided to answer our prayers and put their most popular Naked beauty products into one magnificent gift package - The Naked Vault. The Vault comes with all three Naked eye shadow palettes, all three Flushed blush, highlighter, and bronzer palettes, three eye pencils, and three lipglosses. I'll just let that sink in for a bit.

If purchased separately, the items in this collection would total a lofty $372, however the Naked Vault will be sold for $280. That's $92 to spend on a hot new outfit to match the fantastic new going-out look you will create with all these beauty options. Now, $280 is still pretty high but luckily for all of us, a couple of gift giving holidays are right around the corner. Coincidence? Absolutely not. Thank you Urban Decay for making this holiday season merry and bright!

The Vault is available at and select retailers.

Shupette by Choupette

Now that we have all become well acquainted with the fabulous Choupette Lagerfeld, it should come as no surprise that the kitty is the inspiration for Karl Lagerfeld and Shu Uemura's latest collaboration. Shupette, as it is called, is a limited edition makeup line sold through the Japanese cosmetics company Shu Uemura, and is available to shop right now!

Shu Uemura and Lagerfeld did their first collaboration back in 2012, creating a holiday collection and the fictional character Mon Shu. This time around, they used Choupette as their real life muse, who in turn became an imaginary girl, Shupette. The girl and the cat share a number of qualities and characteristics, most notably their love of pink, white, and of course all things fluffy.

Shu Uemura's international artistic director, Kakuyasu Uchiide met with's Amy Verner to discuss the collection. Of the muse/creation Shupette, he said, "She's a cat and she's a real girl. So what kind of facial features does she have? I used my imagination. I also imagined her like a model." The company's signature false lashes are one of the most fun pieces in the collection and feature tufts of fur and tiny rhinestones.

The collection is fun, playful, and delightfully girly. Perfect for Choupette, and perfect for you. Enjoy!
