My Holiday Beauty Wishlist: The Best Beauty Gifts

Best Christmas makeup and perfume presents, best beauty gifts

Today for Makeup Wars we’re sharing some of our favorite holiday picks for holiday presents. Rather than just cataloging some of the best buys out there today (I’ll do it soon, I promise I have a bunch of great picks for upcoming posts!), today I’m sharing the items that are on my own wishlist. Beauty blogger approved, these are the best beauty gifts!

Rosy Neutral Shadow Palette

I’ve been using more pinky-rose shadows lately, but I only own a few of them. Luckily there have been some great recent releases that are right in line with what I’ve been craving! Here are 3 great options, but note I’ll probably only grab one of these.

Tarte Buried Treasure Eyeshadow Palette – Rainforest of the Sea Collection
10 Eyeshadows: Botty (nude beige), Plank (light pink), Palm (bronze), Coconut (light pink luster), Snorkel (pink champagne), Fin (light mauve luster), Coin (copper), Skipper (deep plum), Dive (light plum), and Nauti (plum luster)

Bobbi Brown Nude Drama Eyeshadow Palette (pink case)
12 Eyeshadows: Ivory, Antique Rose, Earth, Saddle, Halo, Sunkissed, Terracota, Black Sand, Bonfire, Pink Bellini, Velvet Plum, Espresso

Bobbi Brown Caviar & Rubies Eyeshadow Palette (red case)
9 Eyeshadows: Golden Beige (shimmering warm beige), Moon Star (sparkling pink silver), Black Plum (deep black plum), Wheat (medium ash beige), Gilded (high sparkle gold), Cool Grey (cool grey), Caviar (black brown), Black Scotch (chocolate caviar with golden copper flecks), Deep Sapphire (deep blue)


This is the perfect time to stock up or try out a new perfume! One of my stand by favorites is becoming much harder to find, so I’ve been looking for a new one.

Woman By Ralph Lauren Eau de Parfum Spray
I do think I’ve likely found a great new favorite fragrance, Ralph Lauren recently sent me their Woman fragrance and I love it! I’ll post a full review soon. It’s out now in a full gift set with different items, or with an included body lotion.

Sephora Perfume Sampler
I love the Sephora sets to try out a few fragrances at home, then I can chose a new bottle with the enclosed certificate later.

Other Items

Skinny Dip Black Makeup Roll
I always have a hard time packing up brushes when I travel. Do I put them in with my makeup? Do I put them in something else? I have a bag that they kind of fit in, but the zipper catches the bristles. I love that this just rolls out and they’re all available easily.

Bobbi on Trend Pop Lips
I reviewed the nude lip trio over the summer, and I kept almost buying the hot pink set. It’s still amazing and I still want it. It is also available in red.

Included in the trio are Lip Color in Berry, Art Stick Liquid Lip in Azalea, and Lip Pencil in True Pink.

    The roll case looks great for travel and it would fit full size brushes. I also like the looks of the pink case BB. Those are all shades I’d enjoy wearing.
