First on the list: far and away my most coveted item is BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Champagne Glow Palette Featuring Champagne Pop and Jaclyn Hill . The BECCA highlighters are favored by all beauty vixens out there. It's their perfect velvety texture, the way they glide on, and the way they glow of course. This trio has spectacular limited edition colors including the famous champagne pop created by makeup artist and beauty youtuber Jaclyn Hill. Some say highlighters and bronzers are just for warmer weather but I say "BS" they are appropriate all year round.
Smashbox Art. Love. Color. Palettes is a trio of mini palettes that are exquisitely, individually wrapped so they can be divided up and given out as several gifts. But why would you want to do that when you will need each one for yourself? In fact they are set up perfectly for travel. Each mini palette has a trio of triangle/triple-choice eyes shadows and one very wearable blush color. The shadow colors are super pretty neutrals and smokies
And more cheek color! Tarte At First Blush Deluxe Amazonian Clay Blush Set. I love these generous mini blushes! The four colors are limited edition and include two matte and two shimmer textures. Tarte's Amazonian blush is renowned for being long-wearing (up to 12 hours) and is a natural brand - even gluten-free. Set includes a nude melon, a poppy pink, a plum rose, and a rosy pink. I don't know why but I prefer these individuals over the Tarte multi-blush palettes.
Clinique Whole Lotta Chubby. Don't you just love the name? This is a fun sampler of three Chubby Stick lip pencils, one Chubby Stick eye pencil, and one Chubby Stick cheek pencil. The three lips represent the different levels of Clinique's sheerness: mostly pinks but a red one to die for. The eye pencil is a versatile champagne, good for layering under a light powder shadow (lasts longer that way). And yes, the neutral cheek stick goes on smooth as silk and blends like a dream. This is the perfect way to test out the world of chubby.
Drug store perfume gift sets. I was at Walgreen's the other day and their holiday perfume set display was astounding! Totally abundant. Nothing gets me more excited than rows and rows of perfume. And while a lot of it was pretty cheesy there were a few gems to be found. Going this route is a money-saving way to try out new perfumes - the sets even come with body lotions. Often you will find that drugstores have the designer standbys such as Burberry and Thierry Mugler, but I'm telling you some of those celebrity scents are whimsical, casual, and not bad at all. Celebrity scents I recommend trying are Jennifer Antiston, Katy Perry, Kim Kardashian, and Jennifer Lopez to name a few.
