Now is the time to maximize your cosmetics without blowing your beauty budget. Many of the top cosmetic brands are offering holiday gifts that are way more chic than gifts of the past. Back in the day, when companies offered gifts with purchase, the gifts were usually unappealing lip colors or foundation for only one skin tone. Nowadays, companies are more savvy, and are offering gift sets that are totally wearable and even coveted by many!
Check out Bobbi Brown for the Lip Gloss Trio which has three gorgeous, shimmer glosses. I love Bobbi Brown Shimmer Gloss, as it’s not sticky and lasts all day. Smart marketing continues with the line including two different smokey eye palettes, one in “cool” and the other in “warm” to accommodate different skin tones.
NARS, one of my favorite lines, is getting into the holiday spirit with fifteen different limited edition gift sets that will make you want to thank the cosmetic gods. There are so many sets to choose from that I’m not even sure of where I want to start. As always, NARS offers luxurious and decadent colors that work well with all skin tones.
Companies like Smashbox have even decided to offer tools to help you create your special look. The Wondervision Brush Set (pictured at the top of the page along with the Wondervision Jumbo Primer) comes with FULL-SIZED brushes, and the chrome colors are perfect for a holiday gift!
