LORAC Eye Candy Full Face Collection $59.00
This is definitely one of the top things on my wish list this year. The packaging alone is enough to get anyone excited! It looks like an expensive box of chocolates and when you open it up, it looks like there are 6 chocolate bars. These 'bars' are actually small palettes filled with eyeshadows, eyeliners and lip colours. If you're looking for an amazing gift, this is it! Available on Amazon.
Bath and Body Works Lavender Vanilla Aromatherapy Large Gift Box $45
This time of year is stressful and many often forget to take care of themselves while they stress over pleasing everyone else. Show your friends and family that you care by giving them the gift of relaxation. This kit comes with body lotion, body wash, massage oil, aloe infused socks and a candle. Scented with lavender and vanilla, this set will definitely be much appreciated. Available from Bath and Body Works.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette $50.00
A sequel to the original Naked Palette, the Naked 2 features cooler neutral shades. It comes with a dual-ended brush and a small lipgloss. This palette (and its predecessor) have been hugely popular the past few years. It comes in a metal case and a full-size mirror. It's almost a 'perfected' version of the original Naked Palette, aside from the colours. Available from Urban Decay and Amazon.
Too Faced Shadow Bon Bons Set $42
Slightly cheaper with the same number of eyeshadows as the Naked 2 Palette, the Shadow Bon Bons Set has a totally different look. While the eyeshadows are neutral in both, this palette comes with an eyeshadow primer and a mascara and comes in box-style packaging. This would be a great gift for a teenager because it has a younger look to it. Available from Too Faced and Amazon.
Tarte Carried Away Collector's Set $54
I couldn't wait until Christmas to get this set. I bought it about a month ago and it was definitely a good deal! At the time of writing this post (Dec 5th, 2012), it is sold out on the Sephora website (check your local Sephora!). This shows how extremely popular this set it this holiday season. Named one of the best holiday makeup palettes by several beauty gurus on the internet, this set contains a little of everything. It comes with 24 full size eyeshadows, 8 lip glosses, a mascara, a brush, a blush, a setting powder and a great carrying case with room for more products. This makes it great for travel! If you're looking for a gift that will shock and amaze, this is definitely it! Available from Sephora.
