Last Minute Gifts for the Beauty Junkie

With so many people to shop for during the holiday season, it's inevitable that some will to be left for end of the list. The beauty junkie is more than likely one of those people, since there are so many amazing products out there to choose from.

If you are on the fence as to what to purchase that special person in your life who is obsessed with beauty products, I'm here to share my list of favorite items for 2014.



1. Bobbi Brown Art Sticks $26 each
2. Lancome La Vie Est Belle Eau de Parfum $58
3. Becca Limited Edition The One Perfecting Brush $49
4. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfecter Pressed $38
6. Clinique Chubby Stick Cheek Colour Balm $21 each
7. Smashbox Full Exposure Palette $49
8. L'Oreal Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Mascara $8.99
9. Estee Lauder Double Wear Brush-On Glow BB $27.50


1. Bobbi Brown Art Sticks are an amazing 2-in-1 product you can use on your lips and cheeks. That's what I love about all of Bobbi's products, not only are they high quality but she keeps the busy girl in mind when she is creating. Even though the pencil tip is rather fat, it does the work of a lipliner and lipstick perfectly. 

Buy one as a stocking stuffer or a few as a bouquet wrapped with a ribbon. 

2. My favorite perfume of 2014 is Lancome's La Vie Est Belle. Seriously, I used this perfume in the summer, fall, and now winter because the scent is classic. I get compliments every time I wear it, so if you're looking to make someone happy 67year round, you need to buy this perfume.

There is also a holiday version in a pretty frosted bottle that I'd love to own as well.

3. This fall, we were visited by the fabulous folks at Becca Cosmetics and introduced to a revolutionary product that would change the way you view makeup brushes forever. The One Perfecting Brush is the one brush that will take you through every step of your makeup application. 

No really...you can use this to apply your foundation, your blush, your bronzer, your contouring, and your finishing powder all at once. If you travel often like I do, this will change your life.

4. Becca Cosmetics hit the jackpot again with their Shimmering Skin Perfecter. They're not lying when they say it's like "crushed gemstones in a compact. This leaves me with a glow that the sun would envy.

5. Boom, Boom, POW! I swear that's the sound I hear when I open up Shiseido's Ultimate Power Infusing Concentrate in the morning and evening. Not only is the scent incredible and relaxing, but my skin looks supple and healthier than ever. 

Yes you can gift skincare products--- even the packaging is beautiful!

6. For women who became obsessed with Clinique's Chubby Stick for lips, they need the version for cheeks ASAP. It's easy to carry and easy to apply. With so many beautiful shades, you can't go wrong with buying one or a few for your favorite girl.

7. Whether you an eyeshadow application amateur or a pro, you're going to love Smashbox's Full Exposure Palette. The high pigment neutral shades will look fab on all ladies and the included look chart helps them learn how to apply to six different eye shapes. It's worth noting Smashbox has kept parabens, sulfates, and phthalates far away from this palette.

I highly encourage experimenting and playing with colors and products. This item will bring a smile to the beauty junkie in your life--- I have no doubts.

8. Year after year women vote on the one beauty product they can't live without. Every year the answer is the same: mascara. There are so many great ones out there but a current favorite is L'Oreal's  Voluminous Butterfly Intenza Mascara. I have yet to have this clump, smudge, or flake on me. 

Plus with the amazing retail price under $10, you can buy it for a few as stocking stuffers without breaking the bank.

9. Estee Lauder makes so many of my favorite products it was tough to pick just one to feature. Their foundations are so friggin' amazing that I don't know how I ever lived without it. But since foundation is tough to buy for someone as a gift, I went with their fabulous Double Wear Brush-On Glow BB pen. 

You can use it as a concealer or as a highlighter to bring back that summer glow.  Say goodbye to dark circles without having the product look cakey or obvious.

All of the products are available through their official websites listed below the photo above. But if you need to have these in time for Christmas, I suggest heading to Ulta, Sephora, or their respective counters available at department stores. 

Happy Holidays!
