The secret title of this post is: "Things I Want Right Now" but that didn't sound quite as nice as "Gift Guide for the Beauty Obsessed." But it's no secret that I'm "beauty obsessed" so I doubt I had many of you fooled.
So Christmas is 10 days away and perhaps you've got a few people to buy for (or, ahem, everyone left to buy for). I'm no good at presents for Dads or cousins but I've got a keen intuition for the ladies in your life who are makeup enthusiasts. If I was a betting lady, I'd say the following items would please even the most intense makeup lover.
1. Nars Vault- This gift is a bit of a joke, really. Clockin' in at $500, I couldn't fathom a person in my life that would ever spend that much for a gift but if I found it under my tree on Christmas morning, I wouldn't ask any questions. It's nice to dream sometimes.
2. Charlotte Tillbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow Palette- The Charlotte Tillbury line is somewhat new to the US but any makeup-obsessed, blog-following girl will know the UK beauty brand. This palette has nearly flawless reviews and the packing looks too chic to be true. I just want to hold it on my hands.
3. Too Faced Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar Palette- A followup to the original Chocolate Bar Palette, this is Too Faced newest eyeshadow offering. Too Faced makes some fantastic eyeshadows and the selections in this palette phenomenal. Warm chocolatey tones in a mixture of mattes and shimmers make it perfect for everyday use. Plus, it smells like chocolate. So, yeah.
4. Sigma Premium Brush Kit- Sigma is a powerhouse in the makeup brush world and giving the gift of quality makeup brushes would be heaven to a makeup lover. This kit has a brush to suit every need (and then some!). Sometimes gifting makeup can be tricky since formula and shade can be so specific but the gift of a brush set is stress-free.
5. Yves Saint Laurent Volupte Sheer Candy- There's something so luxurious and extravagant about a YSL lipstick. The packaging is heavy and ornate. These Volupte Sheer Candy are so great because they're moisturizing and longwearing with a bit of shine. It's a perfect little bauble that the gal in your life would be pleased to have.
What are you gifting this holiday season?
