My Sister's Coming to Visit!

My sister, the PhD candidate in Physical Chemistry (don't ask 'cuz I can't tell ya) at Baylor, is coming to visit this weekend so I plan on putting together a little care package with some of my favorite makeup and skincare goodies for her to play with in her spare time (right).

tarte fRxtion lip scuff & balm. This double-sided lip balm stick with built-in flip-up mirror exfoliates your lips with the power of sugar..mmmm, sweet.. and then the vitamin E-enriched balm softens and smoothes your lips.

Alison Raffaele Tinted Moisturizer, Natural With vitamins a, c and e and green tea, Alison Raffaele's tinted moisturizer softens, protects and firms your skin naturally with aloe and seaweed. Plus it provides safe, mineral-based broad spectrum sun protection with the addition of both zinc oxide and titanium dioxide. Oil-free and fragrance-free, my sister the chemist (and triathlete) will love it!

Sue Devitt Eye Intensifier Pencil in Victoria Falls, a soft easy-to-apply definer, will highlight her chocolate brown eyes without being too harsh or heavy. Plus her coloring is similar to Brittany Murphy's and look how beautiful Victoria Falls looks on her ....

supersmile Whitening Fluoride Mouthwash Packets My sis is a Virgo, who are notorious for carrying their toothbrushes around in their back pockets. Well, as busy as she is--and as much coffee as she's consuming these days to get through classes and lab-time, it might be nice to just pop a packet of supersmile's Mouthwash in her back pocket instead. You just mix the packet with water and rinse. Et voila! Beautiful, whiter smile and clean, fresh breath...and she's ready for her academic presentations.

Nyakio Perfume Oil is a clean, beautiful and ultra-long-lasting fragrance oil. This low-maintenance perfume is is derived from fresh coconut, sandalwood, apricot, and amber accented by a light musk. The moisturizing formula, containing no alcohol, includes Vitamin E and Grape Seed Oil. Beautiful and healthy!
