Confession: I hate Christmas. It stresses me out. So, I started my Christmas shopping last week. I feel like it’s early to start listening to Christmas music and stuff, but it’s basically never too early to start making progress on the list of gifts I’ve got to pick up.
I have no idea what to get my hockey-loving preteen cousin, or my uncle who has everything…but I do know what beauty lovers want. Or, at least, I know what I’d want, so I’ve put together a little list of recommendations with reviews of the products where applicable. Just in time for the Rouge/VIB/BI Sale at Sephora!
simplehuman sensor mirror pro, $300 // This mirror is incredible. The magnification and the light on it means that my makeup comes out flawless every time. It’s the gift for the beauty addict who seems to have everything.
Livia, The Off-Switch for Menstrual Pain, $159 // Not beauty-related, but amazing nonetheless. For beauty lovers with uteruses, menstrual pain is a pain. Livia provides drug-free relief so we can focus on the important stuff. Like, y’know, lipstick.
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Travel Duo, $40 // I’m surprised I haven’t blogged about this one because it’s one of my favourite perfumes. Flowery and sweet, it’s as sophisticated as a confection can be, and that’s why it’s a classic. The full-size has a steep price point, but this travel duo is an awesome value for $40.
Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette, $66 // One of my favourite palettes this year, hands down. Gorgeous warm shades that’ll work on a variety of skin tones, for the beginners and the advanced.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Mini Liquid Lipstick Kit, $33 // This little set is such a gem. The shades are beautiful, the formula kind of rocks – can’t lose. A great little gift or stocking stuffer!
Laneige Hydration Kit, $26 // Laneige is both affordable and amazing quality. This trial kit lets your gift recipient try out a few products from the line.
DevaCurl Super Curly Mini Transformation Kit, $15 // For the super curlies, this is the trifecta. So much hydration in such a small package for such a small price!
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer, $23 // Fenty Beauty is all the buzz, and I’m a firm believer that everybody needs a piece. For a complexion-centric line, this gloss is awesome: comfy to wear, and great for full glam or casual days.
