Last Minute Holiday Gift Guide 2015



Think there is no time to buy those last minute holiday gifts??

 Think again! Here are a few helpful hints I hope you will like.

Personalized ornaments or mugs with the persons name or initials is always a great gift.
Cute little jewelry or trinket boxes with a cute design. Craft stores have great selections.


This Smashbox Holiday trio set can be three gifts, each palette is packaged separately and are all different colors. Each has two eyes shadow trio and a blush. ( See first picture)

Cute makeup sponges are aways a winner!

Target and other drugstores have a great selection so you can buy several small items for that special person on your list. Great stocking stuffers too.

These cute little gifts are usually fully stocked by the registers in Sephora and Ulta!

Lotions, Body Butter and Candles for a spa day in is a great set to give and very easy to make.


A Starbucks gift card or any other gift cards are always a great gift, so the receiver can choose their own gift.

I know the malls are crazy right now and will be until after the new year.

Try out door shopping centers so you won't feel boxed in.

Make sure to lock your cars and do not keep valuables in your car.

Hope these are some helpful hints!

Be Safe and have fun shopping!

XOXO,

Vicki

Rimmel London Sculpt and Highlight Kit in Medium Bronze 003








I recently picked up the NEW Rimmel London sculpt set at my local Walgreens a few days ago.

The display has 2 of each colors, Fair, Light-Medium and Medium-Dark.

I got medium-dark which is called medium bronze 003.

I am really liking it and I love how the contour/sculpt color doubles as a brow powder as well.

I used it yesterday as a crease color and it looked great.  Yay for multi task products.

 The contour/sculpt  shade is matte which was one of the reasons I bought it, the light and medium kits are all shimmer shades.

The highlight and blush shades have shimmer but are not overly shiny. You know what I mean.

I have not seen these anywhere else but I am sure they will be hitting other drug stores soon.

Retail $7.49 , but they always have coupons.

Pretty impressed with this particular kit ( 003)  as I don't see very many drugstore products like this that are not all shimmery.

This is definitely worth taking a look at.

XOXO,

Vicki

Dose of Colors Dare to Dazzle Limited Edition Trio Review and Swatches



Corset , Scarlet Lace, Teddy

Corset , Scarlet Lace, Teddy



Dose of Colors recently came out with a Holiday trio called "Dare to Dazzle", very true to the name I must say.

These colors are absolutely gorgeous and metallic!!! Yes metallic!

The liquid lipstick game is still going strong and Dose of Colors just added metallic to the game.

These super saturated colors wear beautifully and last for several hours.

I think Corset might be my favorite but again they are all so pretty.

I bought mine at Naimies but you can buy them at Dose of Colors website as well.


XOXO,

Hakuho-do Sephora Pro Brush set

As a beauty blogger and a makeup junkie I have so many makeup brushes , that I really don't need to add anymore in my collection.

Do any of us? Hmmm probably not.

I had been admiring these brushes since Hakuho-do and Sephora collaborated on a more budget and consumer friendly line of synthetic brushes.

I finally decided that Sephora's Friends and Family sale back in late October was the perfect time to try them.

These were totally worth the splurge for me!! I love the quality of them and they are super soft and are some of the best synthetic brushes I have ever tried.





If you are a makeup junkie and love brushes this set is for you!!

Looking to buy the makeup lover in your life a good quality brush set for the Holidays this set is perfect.

This is a more luxurious gift so keep that in mind.

I was hoping the box would be high quality but nope, just cheap cardboard which was kind of a bummer.

I still highly recommend this brush set.

XOXO,

Vicki

Giorgio Armani Eyes To Kill Eye Tint Trio Review and Swatches / Holiday 2015 Set

I recently tried the new Giorgio Armani eyes to kill eye tint Holiday trio.

I was skeptical about how well these would work on me because I have oily lids.

Very happy to report they lasted very well and only started to fade about 8 hours after wearing them, which is good for a liquid eyeshadow.

I prefer to use the Minuit ( the dark blue shade) over a black liner and it really makes my brown eyes pop.

This set is a really great value.






                          




                                       #12 Gold Shadow, #7 Shadow, #2 Minuit

blended


These are not must haves due to the price but they're definitely worth a try if you have the budget for them.

XOXO,

Vicki

Lorac Pink Champagne Palette / Cyber Monday Limited Edition Swatches

Lorac has a new limited edition palette exclusively sold on Amazon for $19.00!

This was a Cyber Monday Exclusive bit there are still some available.

I am sure this will sell out soon.

How Adorbs is the packaging?!?!

A little bummed that the palette has no names of the colors.

 





This palette is basically an all in with eyeshadows, blush and bronzer and highlight.

What a great price and this would make a great stocking stuffer or gift.

XOXO,
