My Top 5 Gifts for the Cosmetic Freak in Your Life!

About three years ago was when my love for makeup really developed. I mean, I’ve always loved makeup but until three years ago I really had no clue what I was missing out on. I put together this list because I know sometimes people don’t know all there is to know about every cosmetic brand out there like those makeup freaks like me do.  Well, this will help steer you in the right direction…or steer SOMEONE in the right direction! I hope you enjoy!

5. Rare Gem Limited Edition Picture Perfect™ Eyelash Curler by Tarte1618wpid-20131211_135043.jpg

This gem is $19.00. I once had this eyelash curler but I lost it!  😦 I bought it again at the end of November and fell in love all over again. My lashes are so long and STRAIGHT! It’s so sad. I struggle so hard to keep them curled. This curler works wonders!   It will surely satisfy anyone on your list!  The regular sparkle-less curler is only $16…but hey the rhinestones add that extra touch! 🙂 You can find this at Ulta or order online.

4. Black Market by Urban Decay


This beauty is on sale right now for $24 dollars on the UD website. It is regularly $36.  I have had these eyeliners before and I absolutely love them; however, I don’t own this set yet. They are so smooth and glide on so well!  I recommend these to anyone who doesn’t have a favorite eyeliner!  These colors are fantastic too! Any makeup lover on your list will appreciate this.

3. Glamorous Blush Palette by Bh Cosmetics


This awesome blush palette is only $10.95 right now! It would make a great stocking stuffer! I love anything from BH Cosmetics. They have great pigmentation and the packaging is always space efficient. This is one on my personal wish list this year!  🙂

2. Anastasia Beverly Hills Catwalk Palette


This sultry palette is only $29. I have just recently become a fan of Anastasia Beverly Hills. I started with the Brow Genius Kit and now I just want all of their products! I’ve seen so many amazing tutorials with this palette. I would love to get this in my stocking and so would your daughter, sister, aunt or best friend!

1. Naked3 by Urban Decay (surprise, surprise!)


I am obsessed with all of UD’s Naked products. This phenomenon retails at $52. I have the first two palettes that I received as gifts and I use them daily and I think they are well worth the price! The best thing about this palette is that these are brand new, never before seen shades.  Both palettes prior have had some repeats from UD’s other palettes.  Naked3 has mattes, shimmers, darks and lights…it is amazing! I’ve tired to get my hands on this the past couple of days but have been unsuccessful. So if you find one some where snag it!!  Someone on your list will be very happy to get this!

Well, that’s it!  These are my top 5 gifts! I hope this helps when it comes to shopping for your loved ones! What products are you hoping to see in your stocking this year?

My Ipsy November Glam Bag


It’s that time of the month ya’ll! (No, not that time of the month!) Most of you should be getting your Ipsy bag soon if you haven’t already, and if you are not a subscriber, you can subscribe to Ipsy here! I’m so thankful that my friend Priscilla shared this site with me! Ipsy is a sweet beauty subscription created by Michelle Phan that sends its members 5-6 beauty samples and full size products based on the quiz you answer. The best part??? It’s only 10 buck-a-roos a month. They charge your card on the 1st of every month and send out your glam bag around the middle of the month. It is completely worth it. I’ve received products from Urban Decay, Chella, Starlooks, Big Sexy Hair, Zoya, Michael Todd, Nourish Organic and plenty more. BE AWARE: There is usually about a month waiting list so sign up as soon as you can! This is what I got this month:

Em Michele Phan Lip Gallery Creamy Color Lipstick in the color Showstopper, Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon in the color Hot Damn, Nailtini Straight Up Color Nail Lacquer in the color Champagne, Pixi Bronzer in the color Subtly Suntouched, Starlooks Gem Eye Pencil in the color Topaz, BH Cosmetics Galaxy Chic Baked Eye Shadow in the color Aphrodite and of course this gorgeous glam bag!

I was pretty excited to get 6 products this month! I had heard they sent 6 products but I had always only received 5.  Yay for an early Christmas!! 🙂 I linked each item to its original site so you can see the regular price of each item.

Here are some photos and swatches:

Em Michele Phan Lip Gallery Lipstick – retails $16.50


Pixi Bronzer – retails $18


Be a Bombshell Lip Crayon – retails $14 (My favorite from the November bag!)
