Beauty gift guide holiday collections 2012


Hello my lovelies! Its been WAY too long! Just a little update on me. Sorry I havent been posting in a few months. I starts my full time student teaching and boy does that take up all my time! I am busy working with my little first graders and I love it! For those of you lovely ladies who have full time jobs and keep up a blog, props to you because it is tough to do!

I am off from school today due to hurricane Sandy :( so I have time to blog a bit. I put together this post of all of the holiday collections and palettes that are available to purchase for gifts. There are quite a few of them that I have on my list :). I mean I really want them all though!

Urban Decay



Urban Decay has a few sets and palettes out that look pretty awesome. The big palette is called the Vice palette and then they have a few smaller palettes and gift sets. You can check out the Feminine Dangerous and Fun Palettes which retails for $36. Check out The vice palette which I have on my list. Is retails for $59 and comes with 20 eyeshadow colors! I absolutely love Urban Decay shadows and liners! They are one of the best!

Tarte

The tarte holiday collections are to die for! They always come out with some awesome gift sets! I really want the The big thrill box set which is on the left. It is an awesome deal! It is sold exclusively at Ulta and is only $48! You can also check out their fantastic foursome 4 piece amazonian clay 12 hour blush enthusiast set if you have not tried them yet. They are awesome and its a great deal to get 4 of them for $35.

 Sephora
Sephora just came out with their Disney Cinderella collection. Let me just say I want it all! There is a palette for $55, Listick set for $25, and a nail polish set for $24.50. There is also a perfume and a smaller palette. You can check out the whole collection at Sephora.

 NARS
NARS came out with their Andy Warhole collection with some very unique palettes. I love NARS products and they make great gifts! They can be a bit on the pricy side for me. You can check out the collection at Sephora.

 Bare minerals
Now that Bare Minerals have their new ready collection I am in love! I want all of their new palettes! Their shadows are SO pigmented and gorgeous! The bottom palette is called the Fired Up palette which retails for $54. Check them out at Bare Escentuals If your looking for the Palette at the top right you check it out at macys.com.

 Smashbox
 Smashbox has some great palettes out. They always give you a ton of colors to work with. The palette at the left is the Studio eye pop palette which retails for $49. The palette on the left is the Studio pop ultimate palette which retails for $59.


 Stila
 Stila has a nice holiday collection out. The palette on the left is the Snow angel palette which retails for $39. You can check out all of the items in the collection at sephora.com.

 Lorac
Lorac has a set of palettes called the eye candy full face collection which  is a set of 6 different palettes. 4 are eye shadow palettes, 1 is a cream eyeliner palette and the last one is a lip and cheek cream palette. This retails for $59.
 Benefit has a lot of great sets that come with a bunch of different products. You can try out all of their new lip glosses in this high flying lip gloss set that retails for $26. They also have a great set that has a bunch of different products for you to try out. It would make a great gift for someone who is not familiar with the brand. Its called the Sexy little stowaways and it retails for $34.


Laura Mercier



Laura Mercier has a neat little essentials palette called the glamour wardrobe dual decker palette. Its on the pricy side retailing for $98 but its a great brand of makeup. It is a very nice gift to give to someone who is starting to get into makeup.

Bobbi Brown

Bobbi Brown has some really nice palettes and sets out for the holidays. The ones I have my eye on are the uber nude lip and eye palette. Its a neat palette that comes with three eyeshadows and three lip colors including a gloss. There is also a smokey palette like this. They retail for $30. Bobbi Brown is one of my favorite makeup brands. If I could, I would put all of her holiday sets on my list of things to buy this year!
