C.O. Bigelow Warm Spiced Cider Lip Shine ($7.50 for 0.5 oz.) is a sheer, shimmery lip jelly that spells like a apple cider and tastes sweet. I very rarely lick my lips, but this tastes so yum! This particular flavor is part of the Mentha Lip Cordials, so there is a bit of a cooling sensation when you initially apply it, and apparently it also freshens breath (zero calories!). It gives lips a glossy look with just a touch of shimmer but no real color (which is fine) while keeping them hydrated while you wear it. Warm Spiced Cider is new for the holiday season, along with Hot Buttered Rum, Triple Hot Chocolate, and Vanilla Cream Eggnog. I find I apply this when I’m running errands or around the house to keep my lips in tip top shape.

Temptalia Asks You

What makeup/look do you wear to a job interview? Share your interview looks!

Temptalia's Answer.

I usually do a sweep of Ricepaper eyeshadow, a touch of brown-black mascara on lashes, and Sweetie or Mari-sheeno lipstick.

Nordstrom Offers International Shipping!

I am so, so pleased to be able to announce that Nordstrom is now offering INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING! International shipping is fulfilled by FiftyOne, and currently, they are shipping to the following countries:

Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia,Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, United Kingdom

Nordstrom HEARS you!

This afternoon, @Nordstrom sent me a quick tweet thanking us for the post write-up, BUT also to clarify and address many of your concerns:

@temptalia Thx for your post re: Int’l Shopping! Want to clarify: Shipping fees vary by country & we will be adding more countries.

And also, just FYI, I know for some countries shipping starts off at some minimum rate and doesn’t go up significantly more thereafter. I also know that some countries have laws or restrictions on certain cosmetics or shipping of cosmetics and all sorts of crazy, complicated international laws that may make a retailer unable to ship you certain brands or products!  Nordstrom suggests customers head to their FAQ if they have questions, too.

But I think it’s really cool that Nordstrom is listening and reading what you are all saying!  :)
