With only nine weeks until the holidays, the gift sets are out and the season of pampering is in full swing. Here are the products hitting shelves now that will make the upcoming weeks of craziness easier.
Talika Eyebrow Lipocils Ink ($29.00) is the first colored brow treatment that actually helps grow sparse brows. Available in two colors, Chestnut (pulls slightly red) and Dark Brown (true to its name) fill in brows while helping to encourage regrowth. For the best application, make sure brows are dry and free of any skincare, oils or foundation. You can expect brows to start filling in after several weeks of treatment. Don't be afraid of the word "ink"...it's hard to overdo it with this pen. It truly gives a natural look!
It Cosmetics isn't offering much in the way of makeup-related holiday sets, but the brush sets are to die for. The City Chic Brush Set ($68.00), includes five face and eye brushes and a beautiful rose gold and silver clutch. You'll get a Chic Powder, Blush, Foundation, Eyeshadow and Crease brush; everything you need to perfect your look. Each brush uses the award-winning Heavenly Luxe synthetic, cruelty-free bristles, for the smoothest feeling application possible. This set is key because the ferrules on the City Chic set are longer than many traditional brushes, giving you perfect finger-feel when applying your makeup. The brush handles are weighted to feel substantial, giving you perfect control of each complexion-blurring sweep of the brush. If you bought the brushes separately, it would cost around $150.00. Get one for you and one for a friend!
I've already mentioned this once, but its deliciousness bears repeating. The Chocolate Truffle Holiday Exfoliator ($88.00) smells like the most decadent pot of chocolate icing, but is so good for your skin. If you love chocolate, or need a gift for someone who does, this is everything.
NYX Women rejoice! Can't get enough of the Liquid Suede Lip Creams? Grab this Liquid Suede Lip Creams Vault Set ($49.00) that contains every color released in this formula! You'll get all 24 shades that deliver long-wearing, waterproof color. If you love this formula, don't let this one pass you by!
Clinique just launched their Very Honey Holiday Collection ($32.50) featuring colors based on their classic Black Honey Shade. This is a must-have for my green-eyed women! You'll get 13 shadows (and a few "brushes" you will instantly lose). These purples are universal just like the original lipstick, so you can't go wrong. And if you are into the minimalist shadow look, this palette offers up combos for days.
For my ladies looking to fulfill a Treat Yo Self day, look no farther than the two-tiered, Giorgio Armani Beauty Light and Shadow Eyes and Face Palette ($140.00). You'll get 10 shadow shades, in two different finishes. In the face palette, you'll get a universal powder, plus a sculpting and concealer shade. This palette takes luxe to the hilt.
What is on your list this month? I'm still pondering this and this, but how many does one person need? Did you notice the lack of holiday eye shadow palettes? I'm meh on all of the ones I've seen so far, but couldn't resist picking grabbing the Anastasia Master Palette by Mario since it was right in front of me...
