Forget those impersonal last minute boxed beauty gifts. This season, several top cosmetics companies have made holiday shopping effortless with gift ideas that will exceed the beauty appetites of every female on your list. These conveniently available items are practical, high quality and will continue to be enjoyed throughout the year.
Chanel remains the quintessential luxury brand that every woman adores and identifies with, so this is a safe bet. The palette options include the practical Collection Essentielle de Chanel, while the exclusive “Paris – New York” collection is a universally flattering range that features the perfect combination of the brand’s bestselling eye, cheek and lip colors as well as two shades of concealer. The compact items are ideal for travel, creating a multitude of chic, timeless looks that will conveniently transition from day into night. Additionally, the legendary Chanel No. 5 is still truly an essential part of anyone’s fragrance wardrobe.
Laura Mercier, one of the industry’s top artistry brands, offers the Colour Wardrobe, which will impress every beauty-savvy female. This marvelous two-tiered palette includes a divine collection of six of Mercier’s eye colors, three cheek colors, six lip glazes and two exclusive limited edition lip stains as well as useful tools. The company also offers a variety of essential brush sets, including the extremely useful Master Brush Set and the very affordable Deluxe Mini Brush Set.
Bobbi Brown’s online exclusive Artist Lip Palette will indulge and delight any makeup artist—aspiring or otherwise—as well as all true lipstick aficionados. Brown’s success is largely based to her incredible lipsticks, so this product features 42 of the company’s most desirable and wearable shades. From sheer to creamy textures, from the softest feminine pinks to the richest deep plum, this artistic range is sure to please any beauty maven.
Although the Clarisonic Skin Cleaning System has already been featured in a previous Beauty Guru post, it’s difficult not to mention this truly wonderful product again. The pampering must-have is the perfect beauty item for absolutely everyone. The results are instantly visible and improve with continued use, making it the gift that literally keeps on giving.
