18 Dec Review, Roundup, Trends: Best in Makeup, Skincare, Fragrance, Holiday Gift Guide 2016
It’s the most wonderful time of the year…and that means it’s time to shop your favorite beauty and skincare products to gift your family, friends (and yourself). We’ve rounded up and tested some of our favorite products. Check them out below!
Benefit Sassy Lassie Holiday Set, $39.
Included in the set are: Roller Lash, The Pore Professional, Hoola Bronzer, and Ka-Brow
The Pore Professional has to be one of my absolute favorite primers. My skin is very tricky, especially in the colder winter months. I have been using it for years and will make the perfect gift for your makeup loving gal pal.
Too Faced Christmas in New York Merry Macarons Set, $39.
Included in the set are: Better Than Sex Mascara, 12-piece Eyeshadow Palette
You can’t go wrong with the bestselling Better Than Sex Mascara! And I found that the mix of shimmer and matte eyeshadow shades were super pigmented and didn’t smudge at all throughout the day. It even comes with a handy step-by-step guide to achieve the perfect holiday makeup look. This a great little gift for a friend. (Shhh, I may just keep it for myself!)
Clarisonic Limited Edition Mia 2, $169.
If you don’t have a Clarisonic, you are definitely missing out on beautifully radiant skin! I purchased my first Mia years ago and have been dedicated ever since. The new Limited Edition set includes:
- Clarisonic Mia 2
- Sensitive Brush Head
- Cashmere Cleanse Brush Head
- FAB Face Cleanser
- 5 in 1 Bouncy Mask
- Ultra Repair Hydra-Firm Sleeping Cream
Braun FaceSpa is the world’s first 2 in 1 facial epilator and cleansing brush designed to enable women to take control of their skin care routine. The epilator removes hair 4x shorter than wax can reach, to deliver up to 4 weeks of smooth skin. And with a quick swap of heads, the Braun Face Spa becomes a beauty brush of your choice, which is suitable for use in the bath and shower. The set includes:
- An epilator head
- A protective cap
- A leather-like pouch
- 4 beauty brushes
Coach The Fragrance, $55.
Still looking for the perfect scent to give as a gift? Look no further! Coach presents its new signature fragrance – Coach the Fragrance. It bears the same name as the 2007 edition, but is definitely a completely different creation with composition and bottle. Coach the Fragrance is designed as a scent that will convey the spontaneous energy and cool vibe of New York City. According to Stuart Vevers, the creative director of the house, Coach The Fragrance is “a fragrance that represents Coach’s free-spirited attitude…a scent that is individual, authentic, and cool.”
TOCCA Luxe Candela Collection, $54 ea.
I can never say enough great things about this brand. The scents are always luxurious and beautiful! The new luxurious hand-poured candle will captivate your senses. Housed in custom-made white scalloped glass, adorned with a bronzed metal lid and fragranced with classic scents, this new collection is the perfect accessory for your home. I have the candle in Giulietta, described as” Sweet green apple and the blooming pink tulips of Corsica whisper to the never ending honeymoon between Fellini and his beloved wife, Giulietta.” So very sweet. The candles are available in scents: Giulietta, Cleopatra, Stella, Florence, and Bianca.
TOCCA Crema da Mano Collezioni (Hand Cream Collection), $32.
The limited-edition Crema da Mano Collezione includes five of the popular hand creams in Cleopatra, Stella, Florence, Bianca and Giulietta. The perfect gift for the woman who has it all, each 1oz hand cream makes it an easy addition to your hand bag or carry-on, ideal for holiday travel.
LAVANILA The Healthy Candle in Pure Vanilla, $22.
The holidays remind us of sweet-smelling aromas and cozy winter nights. LAVANILA Laboratories The Healthy Candle in Pure Vanilla is a perfect gift for the home!
The new hand-poured candle is beautifully made with 100% natural soybean wax. Healthy, clean and soot free, this candle uses a lead-free cotton wick and high grade fragrance oils that deliver a burn time of approximately 50 hours. Simple and modern, the reusable mason jar packaging is beautiful and made to complement every design style with no added dyes or chemicals.
