Holiday Gift Guide 2016

holidayThis is first Holiday Gift Guide post since million idole was published and I’m thrilled to present my first Holiday Gift Guide in a very glamorous way. Holiday Season is just around the corner, I just can’t believe it’s already mid November and most of us only left with few more weeks to prepare our gifts – especially if you’re ordering online you want to make sure you do so now since it may take products longer to get to your door than usual.
Today I’m featuring some great discovery gift sets and some individual ones which are very exclusive. I have also added few non-beauty products since I find many family members and friends are not beauty junky, I have organized little bite from different categories to make it easy for you to choose the right gift for your loved ones, considering every thing beauty wise and some accessories.

Skin Care


There are many gift bundles and kits to choose from and yet many are confusing. I have few makeup sets which have launched recently which are very exclusive, and I would recommend to get them sooner than later since the value sets will sell out quickly. As a makeup lover here are some of the beauty sets that I have been hauling over since I have received them. Starting with skin care Skin Inc Glam Up Kit ($82) exclusive at Sephora is a must have skin care duo which preps skin and seals in all the goodness for a glowing skin. This is perfect for all skin types so there is need to worry about gifting it to any one considering their skin issues. It comes in a beautiful Holiday themed package, and it contains (2 oz/ 60 ml Pure Revival Peel and 1 fl oz/ 30 ml Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask). As well as the Black Tea Age-Delay Traditions ($130) from Fresh Beauty is a beautiful set to reveal firmer, younger-looking skin with this skin care set. It’s good for all type skin textures. Soft and smooth lips gets dreamy but not anymore with Sugar Lip Entourage from Fresh Beauty, I found the package the cutest by far. It’s a perfect set to prep, protect, and perfect your pout with nourishing Sugar lip formulas. Last but least in the skin care section Burts Bee’s Mani and Padi kit ($19) will give your loved ones the pleasure of having Spa like treatment in their own place within few minutes.

Shop Skin Care



makeupTalking about some beauty products – Charlotte Tilbury always brings in the most glamorous gift sets at all prices and I think all girls do need a piece from Charlotte Tilbury’s collection. Charlotte Tilbury’s Dreamy Look in the Clutch ($150) carries beautiful beauty products which comes in a gorgeous clutch look and it does carry a very dreamy look and luxurious feeling into it. This clutch contains :

  • Luxury Palette: Legendary Muse
  • Mini Legendary Lashes
  • Mini Legendary Eye Liner: Bedroom Black
  • Mini Legendary Lip Liner: Bitten Kiss
  • Hot Lips™: Secret Salma
  • USB with Exclusive Video Tutorial

I have all ready reviewed PUR Cosmetics Love Your Selfie 2 ($42) fully here, since I couldn’t resist how beautiful this palette is. It is a complete makeup set that pleases any one, It comes in a gorgeous packaging. As we all have the same love for lips – Beautycounter Love & Lust Gift Set ($108) is a perfect combination of lip gloss sets – which carries different texture and different finishes which would be perfect for all age group ladies. It does come in a beautiful packaging and a beauty note to bring smile to any one’s face.
Ending the Beauty section giving final touches to lips and nails from Nars Cosmetics – Thousand Worlds Lip & Nail Set ($49) reviewed here is one of most beautiful combo sets that have been launched recently. It carries the most elegant colors to give a chic finish to the look.

Shop Make-up




Up next fragrances – some times it purchasing gifts gets challenging and I believe fragrance is one of the most safest ways to sneak by easily. I have few latest from fragrances for Her and Him in this section. Starting from Her – Mugler have just launched their latest Alien Divine Ornamentation ($133 limited Edition & exclusive at Hudson’ Bay Company) which I’ve found it very exclusive and carries a very subtle scent as well as Angel Arty Collector Cover ($98 Limited Edition and exclusively available at Hudson’s Bay), Mugler invents a new way to metamorphose the Angel bottle! the cover is very unique which enhances and protects the Angle Bottle the 25ml Nomad Star. Juicy Couture have launched I Am Juicy Couture ($89) earlier this year which carries a juicy, sensual and addictive style. And last on the fragrance section to present for Her is Coach Eau de Perfume ($115), which carries a sensual suede musk base note. It really brightens up the day.
We can never forget the special men in our life, whether it’s our life partner, father, brother or son. Sometimes finding the right gift for men it out of our hands, especially in my case. But I was very pleased with the new edition of  Jimmy Choo Man Intense ($99) which have been launched at the end of October. It carries a sophisticated and overtly masculine style. And to finish it off I have Vintage from John Varvatos (&110) with classic, distinctive and smooth style which I found very charming. 
If makeup, skin care or fragrance is too hard to pick out for some one too picky, beauty tools are quite appealing. Foxybae hair straightening brush is the safest and easiest way to get any type of hair into shiny and straight locks. Plus they’re offering a 20% off limited edition for holiday sale, use STRAIGHT 20 at the checkout.
