Top 5 Gifts for The Beauty Lovers

I find that my beauty product lovers are the easiest and most fun to shop for.  They’re always open to trying out new things and there’s a TON of options in all sorts of price ranges.  However it can also be a bit daunting because you don’t just want to wrap up a tube of lipstick; so being creative is a challenge BUT fun!  In comes one of my favorite stores: ULTA.  It’s like Disneyland for me and when I go in there I spend at least 2 hours looking at their enormous range of products and sometimes I even get my makeup done if I have the time.  Last weekend I headed in to my local ULTA to get a little holiday shopping done and it was even more fun than usual.  They had tons of holiday gift sets, great price ranges and they were giving  a free robe when you spend over $50 in perfumes – score!  Now I didn’t have a huge list of gifts to buy from ULTA so I had the opportunity to really splurge on the lucky ones and got to gift myself a few goodies.  Check out my top 5 picks below and make sure to check out ULTA’s holiday gift list for more ideas.

For those who are tired of battling frizz the Holiday All That Glitters Ultra Chi Flat Iron is perfect! I love this flat iron and have been using it for quite some time.  It cuts down the straightening process in half and you can even curl  your ends with it.  The glittery flat iron is fun and a must have in any woman’s hair accessories.

Makeup junkies will love these adorable Naught and Nice bags that can be filled with Mariah Carey’s new Opi nail polishes as a bonus gift.

One of my favorite makeup sets to gift was the Vice 2 Urban Decay’s limited edition eye platte. It’s a great addition to any  makeup collection.  A perfect bonus would be Benefits Cosmetics They’re Real Mascara.  I snagged a tube while I was there and it’s insane how long they make your eyelashes look – a must have!

One of the goodies that I picked for myself was the Clarisonic Mia 2.  I needed this SO bad!  My skin has been horrible and dull  this season that not even my normal face routine was cutting it.  I gave this baby a try and boom my face literally felt cleaner and looked more refreshed and even healthier.

Every girl loves to get perfume and I love Marc Jacobs’ Honey and use it as my day time go to perfume. When I saw it in the front aisle I jumped at one of the last two boxes left!  Sweet perfume and bottle.
