Holiday Gift Guide: For the Beauty Enthusiast



I am a last minute Christmas shopper.  I usually wait until the week before Christmas, take a day off from work and do a sun up to sun down shopping marathon until every last gift is purchased.  Sometimes I don't even know what I am going out to buy, which usually leads to more gifts for me than anyone else.  This year I am committed to staying organized and have started to construct a list of what I am buying who.  

To help you with your list, I will be bringing you my first ever holiday gift guide series, starting with my personal favorite . . . gifts for the beauty enthusiast.  Many of these items are on the top of my wish list!


Holiday Gift Guide - Beauty Obsessed

Clarisonic Mia 2 Limited Edition Pink Crocodile ($150.00) - I love my Clarisonic and can not imagine my skin care regimen without it.  If the product junkie on your list doesn't have one of these lightweight, compact sonic skin cleansing devices, this is perfect for them.  This Limited Edition set includes a travel case and pouch, as well as replacement head and gel cleanser.

MAC  Stroke of Midnight Pink Lip & Cheek Bag ($59.50) - MAC does special edition packing really well.  I am especially in love with the packaging of this Stroke of Midnight collection. This set includes a lipstick in How Darling (a warm pink cream), lipglass in Soft Spoken (a soft pink with red frost, a powder blush in Formal (a soft pink), a slim mirror, and 129 Powder/Blush brush.

Laura Mercier  'Fresh Fig' Bath & Body Travel Quartet ($50.00) - Laura Mercier is my go to brand for luxe bath and body products. Laura Mercier brings you a beautiful set of bath and body products centered around the scent of Fresh Fig, which features a sweet blend of gourmand, celeste figs, apricot nectar and ylang ylang to create a rich, unforgettable fragrance. The set includes a 3 oz crème body wash, 3 oz body butter, 1 oz hand creme and .05 oz Eau Gourmande spray.

  • Diptyque Candles (Set of 10) ($130.00) - Every beauty guru or fashionista knows Diptyque candles are the creme de la creme of high end candles.  While they are quite pricey (priced around $60 for a 6.5 oz candle), this 10 piece set is a perfect way to test out all the popular scents.

Power of Makeup Planner Collection Pure RomanceTrish McEvoy  ($235.00) - A Trish McEvoy makeup planner has been on my wish list for years! This makeup planner is perfect for the girl on the go or frequent traveler.  With everything you need for a flawless look, it is a $565 value for just half the price!


The Gem Collection, Julep ($84) - Who doesn't love nail polish?!? Julep brings you a keepsake white lacquer jewelry box filled with 12 glamorous colors!  And if your beauty maven loves getting packages in the mail, you can also gift her a Julep Maven subscription instead!

Mrs Bunny Essential Brush Kit, Sigma ($155.00) - I received the Mr. Bunny kit for my birthday a couple of years ago and have deemed it one of the best gifts I have ever received.  These vegan brushes are specially designed to deliver a perfect makeup application. This kit contains twelve brushes from Sigma's best-selling Essential Kit that utilize the Sigmax HD filament. The brushes come in an innovative and functional container that turns into two brush holders.  And if you are looking for a less expensive set, the travel set  contains 7 of same brushes scaled down to a travel friendly size for $75.
