O HAI! Here’s our annual roundup of our purrrrsonal faves of the year. Blame Angela for the belatedness. (Pssst, we save many of our picks at amazon.com/shop/beautyandthecat (affiliate links).)
My furvorites can be categorized as high joy, best in class, and awesomely lazy efficient.

Every November, I look forward to the chance to shop Sephora for 20% off.
That’s when Sephora’s annual Rouge/VIB/BI sale takes place, so I spend September and October carefully building my cart. In this post, I let the cat out of the (shopping) bag and share my recommendations–a mix of splurges, staples, and smart gifts. And don’t forget that Sephora has a whole K-beauty section featuring Belif, AmorePacific, Caolion, Primary Raw, Dr. Jart+, Erborian, and more and also sells Korean makeup brands such as Chosungah 22, Touch in Sol, and Too Cool for School.
What are *you* picking up at the sale?
Dior Lip Glow ($33) (reviewed here): After many years, 10+ tubes, and endless trials of dupes, this is still a daily staple (actually multiple-times-a-daily staple). This is even better than the History of Whoo version. There are now Lilac and Coral versions, but the original pink still works best for my pale skin.
Chosungah 22 Dual Lip Tint & Gloss ($19) (shown in Chiffon): The lip tint is high quality: applies smoothly, evenly, and with a POW of color. A marked difference from TonyMoly quality ::side eye:: Unfortunately, the lip gloss flakes off. Still worth trying.

When Renee visited me a few weeks ago, she brought along a new toy: the Sephora Favorites Give Me More Lip “lip wardrobe” ($59). It’s a limited edition/holiday 2015 release containing 15 lip colors (4 full size) ranging in colors, formulas, and finishes: from tinted balms to matte liquid lipsticks and from plumping glosses to vampy creams.
We decided to swatch them with Indya (Bella Noir Beauty) so that you could see how they looked on our fair, medium, and dark skin tones. We’re all warm-toned, but I’m NC15, Renee is Not Chanel 35, and Indya is NC50.
Here’s a 2-minute vid where we model (using that word very liberally) every single color.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention
