It feels like every year I tell myself I’ll tackle my Christmas shopping early, and every year I find myself scrambling around at the last minute trying to cross those final names off my list. So as a self-professed makeup and beauty junkie, I thought I’d share with you a few of my favorite things that would be perfect as gifts for the beauty-obsessed.
The beginnings of my makeup addiction started around age 16 and over the years I’ve amassed a drawerful of products, much of which I used a couple of times, wasn’t too impressed, and retired to my very own lipgloss graveyard. If only there were beauty blogs around back then to tell me what was a must-buy and what was just okay! So you have my word that everything on this list has been tested by me….and I absolutely loved it. Here goes:
This palette is brand new and it lives up to the hype. I like my shadows to be highly pigmented and this does the job with a beautiful selection of colors. Oh, and did I mention the whole palette smells like chocolate?
I got hooked on this line because these products are highly pigmented, and last for hours. Don’t be worried about the small amount you get for the price, a little goes a long way.
I reach for my hot rollers on days when I know I need my curls to last from morning until night. These are the best hot rollers I’ve used and they give you crazy volume. For defined curls, you’ll want to purchase additional rollers in the medium size so you can wrap less hair on each roller.
This stuff is my new favorite exfoliant and I have my friends and family (including my boyfriend) hooked on it. You can use it on both face and body.
You know how you love the long-wear of gel polish but have tons of nail polishes in pretty colors that you wish you could still wear? This kit lets you turn any nail polish into gel polish, and it’s the perfect gift for nail lovers.
