Gift Guide: The Beauty Queen

Hey loves! It’s that time of year again! If you’re like me, and love all things Christmas, you’ve probably already gotten a head start on all of your holiday shopping. But if not, I’m here to help with all of my favorite beauty products. These goodies would be perfect gifts and stocking stuffers for all the women in your life! Just click the picture to shop & below you’ll find my review of all the products.

From left to right, Row 1:

First of all, who’s NOT obsessed with Anatasia Beverly Hills? The first two products are the ABH contour palettes. I LOVE the cream (I use the medium shade, for reference), and the powder looks great on top of the cream… soooo basically you need them both because they’re both amazing! haha If you are not a contouring pro, the powder palette is a great place to start!

Row 2:

Mac Mineralize Eyeshadow Quad: These shadows are perfect for the holidays, and don’t even get me started on my Mac obsession. These are GORGEOUS!

Real Techniques 4 pc. Brush Kit – I love these brushes! I have a lot of the more expensive brushes, but these are just as great. I use all 4 every day. The foundation one is really great! The best part about this kit is that the case converts into a stand. Great quality for your money!

Row 3:
Anastasia Beverly Hills Lustrous Lip Gloss Set – This set contains 8 of ABH’s best selling glosses, and trust me, you can’t go wrong. With a $40 price tag, if you’ve been wanting to try these glosses, now is the time!

Laura Mercier Invisible Loose Setting Powder – This baby is on my wish list! You’ve heard all the beauty bloggers raving about it, and Laura Mercier delivers. Obsessed.

Row 4:

Anastasia Beverly Hills Illuminator – I have Riveria and I love it so much that I’m already eyeing another shade. Riveria is a great shade for all skin tones. It creates a very subtle highlight, but you can always build it. I think my next purchase will be Starlight.

Benefit They’re Real Push-Up Liner – You’ve probably heard of this eyeliner because everyone loves it. I am a little late to the Benefit party because I had previously tried so many other liquid eyeliners that ended up being a MESS! I have to say though, this liner is great! It makes it so easy to perfect that winged look. I will never go back!

Row 5:

Clarasonic Mia 2 – I think everyone has heard of the benefits of using a Clarasonic. I have yet to purchase one, but have wanted one for awhile. I think that makes this the perfect gift because it’s one of those items that every woman wants, but might not be ready to spend the money on.

Mac Lipstick – Duh. Perfect stocking stuffer. Any and all shades. You can’t go wrong! (I am currently obsessed with Media).

Row 6:

Mac Studio Fix Fluid Foundation – I recently switched from powder to cream foundation and WOW! What a difference! My skins looks so much smoother. For reference, I am shade NW20. I use this under my ABH Contour Palettes.

Batiste Dry Shampoo – I’ve raved about it before, and I stand by this product. This is my all-time favorite dry shampoo. I’ve linked the travel size can that will fit in your purse, gym bag, or car glove compartment. (The travel size is perfect for freshening up your hair right after the gym!) Full size cans are linked a few posts back.

Row 7:

Morphe Brushes 35 Color Taupe Palette – Morphe is so underrated! They have amazing products for a fraction of the cost of other retailers. Their brushes are AMAZING!! And I have a major crush on this palette. DO NOT BUY from the linked picture.. Buy from Morphe’s website and the palette is only $22. I just wanted to include the picture in the collage.

Beauty Blender – Another great stocking stuffer! I use this product daily for blending my highlight. You need it, end of story. It’s amazing.

Row 8:

Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette – Honestly, you can’t go wrong with any of the UD Naked Palettes. Any of them would make a great Christmas gift!
That’s all for now. Happy Shopping!
