Lipstick League: Best Beauty Gifts for Friends?

sent for review. purchased by me. 

Question of the Week: What beauty products are you gifting this holiday?

I'm weird about gifting people makeup. How's that for a blogger to say? It's not because I don't want people to enjoy what I think they will like, but I don't want them to think I'm giving them press samples. I worry friends will think I don't hold them in high enough esteem to buy them a "real" present. So while beauty is on my mind 95% of the time, I don't want anyone to take a genuine gift the wrong way. Am I bananas or what? If I could get out of my own head long enough, I'd definitely be spreading the Too Faced love this year. Each palette is gorgeous! 

You know what else is amazing? This odd showerhead from Aroma Sense ($80). It's supposed to provide your shower with all of these extra benefits:

  • chlorine reduction
  • aromatherapy
  • vitamin C infused water for hair and skin (there are other scents to choose from, too!)
  • negative ions for increased mental clarity (huh?)

I couldn't still smell the aromatherapy after the first two showers. Maybe because I'm used to it or maybe because the smell fades fast. I don't care. There is a different reason you need this.

The Aroma Sense Luxury Shower Head transforms the feel of your water pressure. It turned my very boring shower into a bathroom similar to an NYC hotel bathroom.  (Which is always amazing. Maybe because the water towers are on top of the buildings?)  It all has to do with the shape of the plate where the water comes out. I actually tested it to make sure it wasn't somehow using more water, because it was such an incredible difference. It's all on the up and up and it's amazing. You need this for yourself and for someone else.
