If you have never heard of this New York based salon please go check out ECRU New York.  They have some awesome Holiday Gift Sets available now called the Simply Glamorous Holiday Sets. They are perfect high quality product bundles for that special friend or family member that was #BornInTheSalon!

I recently received both Holiday Gift sets and loved them. The Simply Glamorous Beauty Essentials Set comes with the Red Velvet Lipstick and Runway Lash Mascara. While the Simply Glamorous Hair Essentials Set comes with one full size Volumizing Silk Mist and Silk Nectar Serum. Both sets come a pretty mesh black beauty bag.

The two I like most are the Runway Lash Mascara ant the Silk Nectar Serum. I used both the Lipstick and Mascara in my recent Holiday Makeup Tutorial on YouTube. Beyond the beauty and hair products this Salon offers Hair Classes designed for those wanting to learn cutting, styling and texture. Be sure to peek in at their line of hair tools and check their Fashion Week Highlights to see their creative catwalk looks on the runway.

ECRU New York offers several colors in this lipstick. All four products have a very silky smooth texture. Even the mascara was impressive because it didn’t dry rock hard like most mascara’s leaving them stiff. The Silk Nectar Serum seemed to smooth out my naturally curly, frizzy hair and helped protect against heat damage. I applied a small amount before and after flat ironing it and it remained same sort of soft for about three days.

I have also been enjoying a different Morphe palette, the About Last Night 9N Shadow palette.  This one is my first mini palette from Morphe so far. It is $12 and the colors in it definitely speak to Holiday looks.  I haven’t used every color in it yet but I have created a couple looks that I did got good feedback on.

For one look, I was able to use the Morphe Metallic Heat Liquid Eyeshadow in Ignite on top of it.  I didn’t like how it looked directly on top of the concealer that I used the first time but it did work on top of the eyeshadow shade Top Shelf from the Morphe 9N.  In a way it kind of defeats the purpose of wearing the liquid if you still have to put on the pressed shadow anyway.  I just laid better to me over eyeshadow and it didn’t seem to loose the original color.

Overall I think this Morpe 9N palette is bomb! I think it might wind up being a GO-TO for me for date night and going out.  The shades are deep and rich enough to create something evening inspired.  You have the option of using a couple or all of them if you choose to get a little more create.  I will more than likely be wearing this holiday season as well. 

Here’s a look that I created using five colors: Hot & Crowded, Make Out, Showtime, DJ & Bottle Service.

Both of these products are sold at Ulta Beauty.  Right now, only the Metallic Heat Liquid shadows are sold on Morphe’s website for $12.
