The “Beauty” of Holiday Shopping: Fast Gifts from Online & In-store Stores!

The beauty of shopping for often is about finding the right gift– oftentimes it’s a gift card to allow the person to shop for “exactly” what they want. It’s easy, highly portable and makes for a great gift that doesn’t require any returns or exchanges. All the regular brick & mortar stores from Nordies to Neiman’s have the cards but if you don’t want to stroll into a store to get one — or wait for them to send you the card, you can go online to or

However if you are looking for some great exclusives, I have a few here you should check out.

Looking for a great gift that will give a special someone that gorgeous glow?
Check this one out: Glitz & Glam Shimmer and Shine Makeup Deluxe Sampler

Here’s something things from Tokidoki that are worth checking out:

Tokidoki Robbery Hanging Makeup Bag
There are several sizes of bags in the Robbery Collection and I suggest that you head to Sephora or to make sure you have a bit of this makeup booty.

The Carrezza Paddle Brush comes in two different colors/designs. I have the white one which suits my “bad girl” attitude perfectly. Note that these are limited edition and they work really well in getting your hair dry in a flash!

Again from the Holiday “Robbery Collection“, this is a great palette and a bargain. Perfect for someone with the sass, attitude and punk attitude to pull it off– though you can work the colors in a variety of ways– I say rock it!

Josie Maran’s Love Nest Gift Set. If you love Josie Maran products, this is ideal “on the run” beauty gift. This one is NOT online at this time. Get it at Sephora stores.

I bought this Sephora LashStash Sampler last year and it was the BEST deal since it had several mascaras I wanted to try and they made perfect additions to my makeup bag as well as travel kit. I was able to find the best mascaras for me and went back and bought full-size ones. Such a bargain deal!!

Carissa Janes the creative genius behind Hourglass Cosmetics talks about the new packaging on the glosses (I have covered this line on the blog & Carissa & I go waaaaaaaay back). This is a fabulous gift: the glosses are luxe and luxurious and the colors are stunningly gorgeous. One of those colors she is talking about is *always* with me in my makeup bag– always!

There’s more to come from Sephora! Stay tuned– and don’t forget that some will be featured for New Years Eve too!
