Most of this month has been so insane, Started at a new place, left my old job, got my business into the new job, christmas, Christmas Shopping, And I Kept Getting Sick. I am going to announce the winner Jan 2. So Sorry guys!!
This is going to be a little bit more on the expensive side, but it is worth it. It is the Smashbox Wish Holiday 2010-- Palette (Wish for the perfect palette) However I do love them all. OH MY! I saw these and I have to have one of each. I bought the one last year and I use it all the time, but this one.. It has colors mine doesn't so of course the most logical answer is IT NEEDS TO BE MINE!!
They are at Ulta.
Now they are all Great but this one. This is the one you want. I love mine so much you get:
Eyebrow powder/ Brow Wax
and 4 mini brushes.
I am in love with the brow powder, one of the colors I ended up using it all and then had to go out and actually get that color. The liners are awesome as well, they go on so smoothly, and the colors are just amazing.
Actually Not even going to lie I am in love with everything that smashbox makes I have had amazing luck with all of their products. If there is anyone you know who loves them as much as I do, This is the perfect present.
Also their wish kit with all the glosses is amazing.. I might have some shopping to do this weekend after work....
So Today I decided I would look into my Boxes of products and make some "samples" of a gift basket for the holidays. This is just stuff I had sitting around So in NO way shape or form am I saying this is the stuff you have to use. One Great thing about my career is I always have Tons extra hair product and makeup lying around. You never know when or what you are going to need.
Also I typically don't use a vase, but it turns out I am fresh out of super cute boxes, SO tomorrow after I am done with my client in the morning I am off to buy some boxes.
Alright in this sample I have put.
Two NYX Lipliner Pencils
Urban Decay Skyscraper Mascara
3 Makeup Brushes
2 E.L.F Glosses
T3 Liquid Iron Booster
Too Faced Eye Primer
E.L.F Shadow Duo
Close up of:
E.L.F Shadows and gloss
Just Another View
In this second one- Jonathan Product Weightless Shampoo
Sexy Hair Soy Renewal Serum
Alterna Caviar Leave in Spray
Urban Decay Lipstick
NP Set lipstick
2 Makeup Brushes
If it happens to be someone you aren't super close with a cute little box with some inexpensive glosses and a lipstick or a liner is the perfect gift. can't go wrong with soft neutral colors, and one bold that isn't over the top crazy but just a good punch of color.
That's it for now, Can't believe how time is flying by the Holidays are coming!!!!!!!!
I used to be in love with Hard Candy. Everything in the line they had I loved, It seemed like one day it was just gone.. I was pretty sad, but thanks to another blogger, who is great (My Best Beauty Buys) Yes it is a link you may click on it. I found out Hard Candy is now at Walmart! Brilliant!! So here is a quick list of their prices..at my local Walmart but they are probably all about the same... Just checked the website they are the same. Whew!!
Holiday Tip! I love travel sizes of things Especially When it comes to things like hair products and when you can find them in makeup too even better! For the Holidays a lot of makeup is Travel Size it is Amazing!! Not only is it a great way to try new things, You can mix and match. They are great to give as a stocking stuffer. I love them if I am making a friend a gift set. I will get tons of the travel sizes in things and do maybe one or two of full sized items, that I already know they love and use all the time. Now A list of my Favorite Travel Sized Products! Well The ones that actually come to mind as I am typing.. I hate when I get a brain block!!
