Ofra On Holiday Mini Set | IS IT WORTH IT?

Hello friends!

Today I wanted to share another holiday gift set with you all!  I recently watched Jen Luvs Reviews’ Ofra Holiday Collection Video, and was inspired to pick up their “On Holiday” set because of it.

Ofra On Holiday Set in Packaging - A Midwest Belle

First of all, how cute is the packaging it comes in? I know that doesn’t make a difference on product quality, but it always provides a good first impression and overall is a nice touch.  Ofra has recently rebranded their products, so if the white, square look isn’t familiar, that’s why!

The On Holiday set comes with three products, all mini sized: a Rodeo Drive highlighter, and Americano and Tuscany in their liquid lipstick formula.

Too Faced The Sweet Smell of Christmas Mini Melted Liquid Lipstick Set (w/ swatches!)| IS IT WORTH IT?

Hello friends!

Today, I wanted to share a review of the insanely popular Too Faced liquid lip set for this year!  It’s sold out on the Sephora website, as well as the Too Faced website AND Ulta, but hopefully it’ll come back!

Can we just take a moment to appreciate how stunning this packaging is??

The set comes with four different liquid lipsticks, three in varying nude shades and one in a classic red.  The unique selling point for these lip products is that they semll just like their name!  So Pumpkin Spice smells like pumpkin, Sugar Cookie smells like cookies, etc. Unfortunately, each color seems to have a different formula, so I’m going to detail those variations quickly as well as provide a summary of some points.

(In order left to right: Cinnamon Bear, Pumpkin Spice, Hot Buttered Rum, Sugar Cookie)

Kopari Aluminum-Free Coconut Deodorant | IS IT WORTH IT?

Hello, friends!

I wanted to share an awesome new product I’ve been using lately that I received for free from Influenster.  It’s the Kopari Aluminum-Free Deodorant (if you couldn’t tell by the title!).

I’ve been testing this for about a month now, so I feel like I have a pretty good idea of how it works, and am excited to share my experience with you!

The deodorant smells like a very soft coconut milk, which basically translates to a slightly sweet smell in the tube and like nothing when applied to your underarms.  If I ever do smell anything, it’s just a slight freshness, but not an overwhelming or strong smell like you’d find in traditional drugstore deodorants.
