It has begun: the flood of Friends & Family discounts, holiday savings, Black Friday deals; all this temptation is making me crazy!

Yesterday was the last day of Sephora's V.I.B. 20% discount, so I ran over on my lunch break to pick up a few things I needed. I realized I've never done any product reviews, but now is as good of a time as any to start! Stay tuned for my upcoming 2011 Holiday Gift Guide (which will include loads of gift ideas), but for now, here are a few things I love.

Urban Decay

I know different makeup works well on different people, based on skin type, but I have sworn by Urban Decay's eyeshadows since I first tried it. They put together amazing palettes, and their shadow stays on for hours. I just adore this new palette; it's going to be my go to for the next few years (and now I really have no excuse not to throw out my old one, which I have had for four years, gross).

Ojon Dry Shampoo

Let's face it, how many of us have not had a day when we desperately need to shampoo but simply don't have the time? I'm loathe to admit how often this happens to me.

I've tried several brands, but Ojon is the clear winner. And apparently they've done something recently to detoxify their formula. Bravo!

Natural (Boar's Hair) Brushes

I recently read an article about how to get healthy hair; of course hydration and diet are the biggest factors, but external elements play a role as well. I'm trying to grow my hair out, so I thought I'd invest in a natural hair brush (one of the article's recommendations). My hair salon carries Bumble & Bumble brushes, at a going rate of $80. No thanks! So I'm trying out Sephora brand's boar's hair detangling brush (so far, so good!).

 Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil

I haven't worn it yet, but I'm trying to be bold and wear a red lip. I went with Dragon Girl (siren red). How could I not?

Any products I should know about? I'd love to hear your favorites!
