It's that time of year again! Each year BeautyPopStop publishes a holiday gift guide geared towards men and women, featuring a variety of exciting products. The Hubs and I have put our heads together once again (don't forget to check out his men's section above for men's products) and we have some pretty amazing gift ideas to share with you this year!

Each edition features one gift idea for women (or general beauty lovers), one gift idea for men and one stocking stuffer (items $25 and under).

Make Up For Ever Ultimate Long Lasting Lip Set

You guys know I love my lippies, so the second I saw this set it immediately peaked my interest! It consists of 6 MUFE Aqua Lip pencils and 6 corresponding MUFE Aqua Rouge double-ended liquid lipsticks. The pencils have a consistency similar to UD's lip liners--slightly tacky and thick, but with great wear. The Aqua Rouge liquid lipsticks have liquid lipstick on one end and a clear topcoat on the other. The liquid lipsticks set fairly quickly to a fairly matte finish and the clear top coat sets to a fairly non-sticky, but totally glossy finish. Both ends have their own doe foot applicators. 

In this Set

This set includes 6 shades that vary from deep to neutral with a couple brighter shades:

  • 6 x 0.04 oz Aqua Lip in 8C (red), 2C (rosewood), 14C (light rosewood), 10C (raspberry), 16C (fuchsia), 18C (coral)
  • 6 x 0.08 oz Aqua Rouge in 8 (red), 2 (rosewood), 14 (light rosewood), 10 (raspberry), 16 (fuchsia), 18 (coral) 

Shades

Of course I couldn't post about this set without doing some swatches for you! Aside from cropping/watermarking, these swatches were not edited in any other way. It's all MUFE!

Alchemy Goods Elliott Toiletry Bag (made of reclaimed truck inner tube)

I purchased this for the Hubs last Christmas and it was a huge hit! It looks neat and it's a fabulous eco-friendly product (something we try to look for). The quality of the stitching is fantastic and the bag itself is super sturdy. Because these are made from reclaimed truck inner tubes no 2 are alike, so they're super unique gifts! I also love that the pull on the zipper is made from a tube valve. It does well if it's accidentally exposed to moisture and this particular model holds a good amount of products if you're traveling. The Hubs has had it for a year now and it's held up well with no real visible wear.

This comes in several color combination options including black on black, blue on black and red on black. 

Note: When I first purchased this I noticed it did have a slight rubber smell to it. I bought it a few weeks before Christmas so I placed it in a bag filled with coffee beans and that took away a good amount of the detectable smell. I have a super sensitive nose so this may not be something you notice and it was well worth the extra effort in our opinions. 

Price

This retails for $35 (a smaller version is available for $30)

This can be purchased through Alchemy Good's site
