Best of Holiday Beauty Gift Guide 2017

Press Sample

It's that time of year again and we're excited to share some of our top gift suggestions with you! Each of these items have been handpicked by us because they're products we really enjoy ourselves and believe the lucky people on your gift list will, too. We've been progressively adding to our gift guide, so be sure to check back for new additions as the holidays go on!


Included in Our List:

Sephora Dark Rainbow Antibacterial Brush Set ($49 retail) - This set is perfect for the beauty lover just getting into makeup as it includes 7 staple brushes for both face and eyes! Available at Sephora/Sephora.com

Slip Sleep Mask ($45 retail) - Whether you travel frequently or simply need complete darkness to sleep at home, this silk sleep mask doesn't create lines on the face, feels buttery-smooth on the skin and makes for a gorgeous, luxury gift. Available at SlipSilkPillowcase.com and other retailers.

Joico K-PAK Color Therapy Holiday Duo ($31.98 retail $22 sale) - Each year we feature Joico's holiday hair bundles because not only is Joico one of our hair care brands of choice, but their holiday bundles are incredibly great value-wise! You don't want to miss out on the current sale if you're looking for holiday hair care. We recommend any of the sulphate-free formulas such as K-PAK, Curl Cleansing, etc. Available through Joico's site as well as other retailers.

Tweezerman 3-Piece Glitz & Glam Gift Set ($48 retail) - We love Tweezerman tweezers, but we picked this set in particular because it includes their ProMaster Lash Curler, which is particular great for almond eyes (which can be hard to find!). Available at Tweezerman.com and other retailers. 

Sugarpill Liquid Lip Color ($18 retail) - If you've followed us here over the years then you already know that Sugarpill has been one of our favorite indie brands for quite some time. We were so excited to see them launch liquid lip colors a couple years ago, which we find to be some of the prettiest and most comfortable liquid lip colors out there--and we've tried most of them! While Trinket is our favorite shade followed closely by Kim Chi, they recently launched a more expansive line that includes the shades from their Pretty Poison lipstick line! We're eyeing a handful of the newly launched shades. Available at Sugarpill.com and other retailers.

Elemis Frangipani Treasures ($137 retail) - Elemis is a British luxury skincare brand we became better acquainted with a couple years ago and fell in love with, which is why we had to include this amazing gift set (which values at over $200) in our guide this year, which includes everything from shower gel to body lotion to a beautifully scented candle! Available at Elemis.com and other retailers.

Sephora Fox in the Box Sponge Set ($18 retail) - If you're looking for a fabulous set of face sponges to gift this holiday season check out this adorable set from Sephora! It comes with 3 bulb-shaped sponges in what has got to be some of the cutest packaging we've seen from Sephora in a while. Available at Sephora/Sephora.com.

Make Up For Ever Dany's Pouch ($31 retail) - No, this isn't a new product, but it is one of our all-time favorite ways to store and travel with our beloved brushes and we think every beauty junkie should have at least one (or four!). This pouch keeps brush heads from getting crushed and even fits some of our most fluffy, over-sized powder brushes! Truly a must-have in our opinions. Available at MakeUpForEver.com and other retailers. 

Makeup Geek Highlighter in Psychedelic - Duochrome ($20 retail) - When Makeup Geek released their duochrome highlighters we went nuts for them ... and talked about them a lot! These highlighters are silky-smooth and offer the most flattering duochrome shifts. Psychedlic is one of our favorites, though we own and love LIT, Moon Phase, Celestial and Electrify just as much! Available at MakeupGeek.com.

Anna Sui Makeup Coffret Set K ($54 retail) - Anna Sui makes some of the most delicate shades in what has become our favorite packaging of all time. If you want elegantly feminine products with a touch of Victorian grace, these are a must! This set was of our favorite of the items launched for the holidays as it includes a beautiful face powder, lipstick and collection-worthy cosmetic bag. Available at Beautylish.com and other retailers. 

*Little Beauty Lover Gift Idea* 

"Pro" Beauty Mermaid Eyeshadow Brush Set ($20 retail) - While the name includes the term "pro" we wouldn't personally consider these to be pro brushes (for the simple fact they're not kit-friendly), however, we do think they're a budget-friendly option for a tiny, budding makeup lover to play with! The bristles are super soft and the handles are super adorable--who doesn't love mermaids?  They remind us of some of the brush sets we've seen Sephora put out in the past quality-wise. Available at OneSpotBeauty.com

Feel-Good Gift Ideas

If you want to give a gift that gives back consider these options!

Love with Food ($7.99-$19.99 subscriptions vary) - We've talked about Love with Food in the past, but if this is your first time hearing about them you're in for a treat. Not only do they offer healthy snack options and a gluten-free version, but for every box purchased they donate to a food bank! While we may not fall in love with every snack we receive, we find that between the four of us we enjoy 90% of each box--which is pretty good! You can get your subscription or gift one at LovewithFood.com.

MAC Viva Glam ($17.50 retail) - Viva Glam has been MAC's longtime charitable program, which donates the entire selling price of each lipstick sold to its MAC AIDS Fund! Not only are the shades some of the most popular staple shades MAC sells (in our opinions), but the cause is certainly a worthy one. MAC Viva Glam lipsticks can be purchased from MACCosmetics.com/MAC stores/MAC counters as well as retailers that sell MAC.


We hope you find some of our suggestions helpful as you go through your holiday shopping list! Make sure to check back as we continue to add to this list throughout the holiday season.

Happy shopping!
