It’s that time of year again — Christmas! Lot’s of glitter, bows and shopping for those you love the most! As you already know, it’s my favourite time of year and annually, it’s my mission to get the beauty junkies in my life the perfect gift.
Whether the beauty fanatic in your life is more on the natural side or they’re super bold, here’s my picks for your family and friends and perhaps for you too!
You can never go wrong with stuffing a duo pair of tweezers in someones stocking. In the Tweezerman Merry and Bright Duo you get a mini slanted and pointed tweezer in a gold luxurious pouch. This retails for $30 at Murale.
If you want to add a feminine touch to the beauty maven’s gift, Tweezerman also offers a beautiful Rose Gold gift set. This can also be found online or at Murale for $59.
Not sure about selecting the right shade for that makeup junkie in your life? The Quo Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe offers a variety of affordable rich matte lipsticks in some hot shades. You can find these at your local Shoppers Drug Mart.
Urban Decay expanded their Naked collection with an all matte eyeshadow pallet. Whether your makeup junkie is more on the bold or softer side, this palette is a must have with it’s large mirror feature and mini eyeshadow brush. The Urban Decay Ultimate Basics Palette is $68 CAD and can be found online or at one of their new self standing stores!
As it gets cooler our lips tend to get dry. EOS has just released their new shimmer lip balms just in time for the holidays! This would make another great addition for your stocking and can be found at many mass market retailers.
Fragrances are a beautiful way to give something a little more personal and while a roller ball is small enough to be a stocking stuffer, I’d totally give this one as a gift! Nest Fragrance’s have quickly become one of my favourites because of their rich scents that tend to have a nice longevity on my skin. Nest Fragrance has a large array of fragrances, you can find your desired size and scent here.
And lastly, if you happen to enter a moment of uncertainty, gift sets are always worth purchasing as they always have high value products for less.
