Beauty Gift Guide


I think beauty gifts are so fun so I rounded up some of my favorite holiday gift sets. There are so many limited edition sets made just for the holidays and creating this beauty guide now has me wanting alllll of them! Ha! Do you have a favorite? I’m personally loving 2, 6, 7, and 9… and a couple that I mentioned below next to the items listed. #dangerous

PS Get those last entries in for the Wrenn Jewelry giveaway!


1. Limited Edition Lancome Brush Set (and I also love the sweet Jouer Brush Set)

2. Deborah Lippmann Manicure Essentials (also love Deborah Lippmann Big Bang Nail Lacquer Set– so many amazing shades! And the Butter London Ultimate Lacquer Trunk)

3. Laura Mercier Body & Bath Ambre Vanille  (I also love the Laura Mercier souffle body creme collection and Golden Honey Musk Duet)

4. Sephora Fragrance Sampler is perfect when you want to buy someone perfume but you don’t want them to hate it! Here they get a sample of the top 10 best selling fragrances and then get to choose the full size perfume of their preference. Pretty cool, no? But if you want to buy a full size perfume, Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb will never stop being my favorite.

5. Dior Holiday Makeup Palette – perfect travel size and beautiful shades.

6. Drybar Holiday Kit– that is one sweeeet hair care gift.

7. Yves Saint Laurent Wildly Gold Palette – beautiful!

8. Birchbox Favorites Set  (love everything it comes with!)

9. Bobbi Brown Deluxe Eye and Lip Palette – so fun.
