Only three more sleeps until Christmas! Who else is still looking for that last minute gift? If you’re like me, the stocking is always the last thing on your mind. The little trinkets that fill it are supposed to be easy to find right? While I’m still debating on what to fill Patrick’s stocking with, I’m loving the idea of stuffing a stocking with adorably packaged winter beauty goodies for the gals in my life.
More often than not, our favorite makeup shopping destinations have special limited edition goodies that you can only find this time of year. So it’s a great time to find some extra special beauty deals. (& no one’s going to tell if you snag some for yourself too!) Head down to the bottom of the post to see my winter beauty favorites & why I’m loving them!
All the Goodies:
Lipstick Queen Smokey Lip Kit: It’s like the smokey eye, but for the lip! Lipstick queen is one of my favorite brands because when you’re wearing it, it hardly feels like there’s anything on your lips at all. Super lightweight, which I love. The kit includes a full coverage shade and another shade of “black sheer lace” that totally transforms your lips. Trust me, they’ll look anything but vampy!
iT Cosmetics All That Glitters Brush Set: Just by looking at these pretties, you’re going to think “holiday!” This limited edition set of sparkly brushes not only are oh-so-cute but add a touch of luxury to your everyday routine. My favorite is the big powder brush. I use it every day!
JINsoon Obsidian Nail Polish: I’m noticing a trend here, dark lips now dark nails? I promise I’m not really this goth. This made in USA polish from JINsoon has itty bitty bits of sparkle in it, making it the perfect shade for New Year’s Eve!
Feel Beachy Texture Spray: Great for the girl who wears her hair curly & doesn’t want to wash it every single day … or every other day for that matter. (Story of my life!) All you do is spray & rub into dry or damp hair for a windswept tousled & texture look that enhances your curls. Plus, it smells divine!
Clarin’s 4-Colour Eye Shadow: I’m still no expert when it comes to layering eye shadow, but I love that this 4-color kit comes with just what you need (and a little tutorial too) to get the perfect purple smokey eye. Plus, it’s small & compact & great for travel.
Make Up Forever Lip Fever: My favorite solution to a simple bold red lip. The color is so easy to apply (it’s like a crayon!) and the texture is silky & smooth, leaving a matte finish.
Wishing you all a relaxing & stressfree couple of days as you try to knock out all the last minute holiday shopping and whatnot before the big day! Patrick and I have a few more things to grab and then a BIG grocery trip ahead of us. After that, it’s time to hunker down and enjoy Christmas at home with our pups! Can’t wait!
