Bee's Beauty Favs (Fall/Winter Edition) *GIVEAWAY

Just so you know what you’re getting with this blogpost and so you’re not surprised… I’ve got a giveaway, a product review (all opinions are my own), and some stocking stuffer ideas for that beauty lover on your list. I went back and forth about doing some gift guides this year but I figured I might as well just share with you some things that I have been loving, drop the links to them, and let you decide! So, not really a gift guide, more of a beauty favs. But first… let’s do a giveaway!


I’ve been working with Formulate since July and have shared my experience on my IG stories and in a few posts. Just a reminder, Formulate is a shampoo and conditioner that is engineered specifically for you and your hair needs/goals. You take their questionnaire, which is super fun and you get to design your own products! I personally love a good online quiz and if the result of quiz is healthier hair, sign me up! So what did I think of my products?

I would first like to say that when you’re taking this quiz, be really honesty about your hair. I think when I first did it I thought my curls were better than what they really are… cause real talk, I have waves, not curls. Being real about your locks is going to help you get the perfect formula right away. I think that’s why my first formula wasn’t quite right. Their amazing customer service worked with me to adjust my formula and even changed the scent to better suite my hair needs and goals. I am so pleased that they were so quick to communicate with me and the turn around time on my new formula was under a week! It now lives in my shower and my original formula, the one that didn’t work gets used by Fabian who does have curls.


I’ve got 3 stand out favs about my Formulate shampoo and conditioner, the first would be the packaging. It’s just so pretty y’all! The second would be the scent. I originally started out with the scent ‘Tidal’ which has notes of sea, warm sand, and coconut. I would say more sea and warm sand than coconut. It was not for me. I switched my scent to ‘At Dawn’ which has notes of green apple, pear, and rose. That scent is glorious and it lasts!!!

The other stand out for me is the texture and hold that it gives my hair. My waves seem less frizzy and more in control of their motion. I can spend less time manipulating and damaging my hair with a flat iron and more time just working with my natural texture. That was my overall goal. So, goal achieved!

Here’s the fun part! Formulate wants to give YOU this experience too! It’s super easy, all you need to do to enter is click that button! One winner will get a set of their own shampoo and conditioner. And just for entering y’all will get a code for $5 off! *giveaway will close on Dec 24


And just for more fun I wanted to share a few more of my beauty favs with you and maybe give you some stocking stuffer ideas. If I am honest, stocking stuffers are my favorite part of Christmas! And if I am even more honest, I am guilty of stuffing my own stocking with things that I want. (it’s ok, my mom does it too)

Essie Mint Candy Apple: This is the 3rd bottle I have had of this color and it never lets me down. Also, it’s totally a year round color!

Sephora Lip Stain in 01: If you don’t know about this cult fav then now you do. This the perfect red for everyone! It’s the kind of red that makes your teeth look whiter and the kind of red that will stay on through your Christmas dinner. Put this in your own stocking for yourself!

Wet n Wild 10 Pan Eye Shadow Palette: Any of Wet N Wild’s eye shadow palette’s are just so amazing! I am using this one right now in my daily routine and these shades have complimented my winter style perfectly!

Earrings: Why not slip a unique pair of earrings into someones stocking this year? The ones in the photo are the Lucy and I have been loving them! They are from Law Designs!

Ok, y’all! Happy Shopping!
