My Top #sorrynotsorry Beauty Products

Christmas is less than 30 days away (!!!), with all the gift guides going up at YouTube and holiday promotion emails hitting the inbox at full swing, I thought I would share my top #sorrynotsorry luxury beauty products, ranging from makeup to skincare, to body care and perfume.
