When people tell me I’m hard to buy for, I simply say “buy me anything from the Cosmetics Department; you can’t go wrong!” and it’s true. I love gifts of beauty. I’ve been searching for some of the most dazzling and glamorous gifts that will make any beauty girl happy…and make your gift-giving easier.
The Bobbi Brown Twilight Pink Lip & Eye Palette is a day-to-night makeup kit that contains ten eye shadows in gorgeous, wearable shades and four shades of Creamy Lip Color. This palette is perfect for carrying in your handbag or to lighten the load when you travel. I love the new design, with a panel that keeps lip and eye products separate. $80
From TATCHA, the Kinka Gift Set is for the woman that takes a glamorous approach to skincare. Included are TATCHA’s Gold Camellia Oil, an amazing Gold Camelia Oil Nourishing Lip Balm (addicted!) and Japanese green tea candies. The presentation is exquisite in an authentic Japanese Kiri Box. $150
One of “the” hot gifts for the beauty girl is the Urban Decay Naked3 Palette. A dozen shades of rose-gold eyeshadow goodness, this palette is on every makeup addicts wishlist. You definitely can’t go wrong with this gift! (Note: watch for the upcoming review!)
The Elemis Scent of Spa Candle is a gift of pampering for the spa-lover or anyone that needs to create a calming environment. I love this candle–it’s scented with cinnamon, orange and vanilla natural essential oils. Warm and inviting, this candle would also make an especially thoughtful hostess gift. $40
The bareMinerals Degrees of Dazzling Collection has 20 bareMinerals eye colors in four different finishes. She’s sure to find new favorites and endless inspiration! This is a wonderful set for someone just starting to build their makeup collection. $79
A quintessential gift of beauty is fragrance, yet it can be hard buying a fragrance for someone if you’re not sure of their likes. I was so excited to learn that one of my favorite fragrances, Calyx (formerly Prescriptives) is now back and available through Clinique! Sparkling notes of citrus-grapefruit at the top of the fragrance, a floral heart with notes of jasmine, freesia and lily and that watery-dewy accord on drydown. Still a classic and so glad it’s back! $52
If you’re shopping for someone who likes ‘bling’, look no further than the Starry Nights Powder Compact Collection from Estee Lauder. Encrusted in crystals and stones, these are the most beautiful compacts I’ve ever seen. Inside you’ll find (refillable) Lucidity Translucent Pressed Powder. In four shades: Blue, Clear, Pink and Topaz. This is a gift she’ll always treasure. $300
