Holiday (Last-Minute) Gift Guide 2015: Beauty
Hello, luvvies! Christmas is almost here, and if you're like me, you're still bustling about trying to find the perfect last-minute gifts for the gorgeous and glam ladies in your lives. Have no fear: today's beauty post will give you ideas for perfect skincare and/or cosmetic gifts (for all budgets). Skin Care/ Fragrance: 1) Glam Glow GiftSexy Dazzling Hydration Set: This kit includes three ultra-hydrating mud masks plus a fab brush for mask application. Glam Glow is the ultimate product for dry-skin sufferers at this time of year. Available at your nearest Sephora (or get it ordered just in time here). 2) Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Ferulic and Retinol Discovery Kit: I have used Dr. Dennis Gross products in the past and (assuming you don't mind the $$$ price tag) you can't get much stronger anti-aging treatments without going to your doctor. This stuff is the real deal, ladies. This particular treatment kit includes a brightening solution, an eye serum, and a dreamy, creamy anti-aging moisturizer. Again, this awesome gift is available at your local Sephora or online here. 3) Dr. Jart+ Book of Masks: Now you all know that I luvv a sheet mask treatment, and this Book of Masks does it ALL. The book contains eights masks, five of which are designed to fight typical skin concerns (acne, dullness, enlarged pores, etc), and three of which are formulated to tighten and smooth wrinkles and other signs of aging skin. Who wouldn't love the opportunity to treat herself/himself eight times over thanks to one awesome gift?? Get it here. 4) Pinrose Perfume Collection: This is the one product on today's list that isn't available at Sephora, and for good reason. Pinrose is a luxury perfume brand that allows you (or your lucky gal pal who receives the gift pack) to design a fragrance that perfectly represents you. Another awesome aspect of this brand? It's made for women on the go. Read more about it (and get to shopping) here! Cosmetics: 1) Tarteist Contour Palette by Tarte Cosmetics: This contouring palette is EVERYTHING. Notice it has darker shades to create shadow, brighter/shimmery shades to create highlights, and the prettiest rosy shade for blush. True, it's not the cheapest item on this list, (this palette retails at $45), but it's the kind of product that will last throughout the year. Get it here. 2) Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette: By now you've heard all the hype surrounding Too Faced's amazing shadow palette; don't you think your bestie from college needs this? Bypass the NAKED palette from UD for this one-- you won't regret it! Available online and in the store at Sephora. 3) CoverGirl Star Wars Collection: Okay. You all probably knew these adorable Star Wars products from CoverGirl would end up on this list. These lipsticks come in gorgeous shades, plus you can pick them up at Kroger while you're there to buy more eggnog. Super affordable and super on-trend, these are the perfect stocking stuffers for the nerdy luvvy in your life. Get 'em here, and may the Force be with you. 4) Smashbox Be Legendary Lipstick Palette: Sigh. This is it, the Holy Grail of lipstick sets. All twenty-five shades are inspired by fashion icons, and they're all in the Smashbox creamy formula you've come to love. This is another triple-dollar-sign gift, but I'd say $75 is a fair price to pay to offer your loved one endless lipstick options. Any men out there reading this? Specifically boyfriends or husbands of makeup addicts? Even more specifically, my husband? John, are you reading this? Because this is the big-ticket gift. Just a small hint. Get it here and then meet me under the mistletoe. Happy holidays, my luvvs! I'll be back next week to talk New Years Eve looks. See you all then!
