Sunday, November 28, 2010

Here are my top picks on holiday gift ideas for the beauty obsessed sister, wife, girlfriend, daughter, girl.  Some of these products are universally loved by beauty editors while others are secret cult favorites. All are linked by an important commonality: they will make you look and feel fab!

For the pore-obsessed beauty junkie:

YonKa Gommage 202 Soft Peel Gel $39.00
This gel is so gentle it can even be used on the eyelids!  It contains no abrasive grains and is a 4-1 gel that exfoliates, hydrates, tones and brightens while working to eliminate flaws and dull, lifeless cells.  Helps to refine enlarged pores to reveal drop-dead gorgeous skin that feels smooth and supple.

Olay Regenerist Microdermabrasion Treatment $29.99
The power of two treatments to regenerate your skin's appearance - at home. The system has two steps that actively work together to give you a combination of a microdermabrasion and mini-peel treatment, but it's gentle enough to use up to two times a week for continuous results. Gently resurfaces skin’s texture. Activates surface cell renewal. Conditions skin to leave it feeling soft and smooth. Visibly improves skin tone. Diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

For the makeup obsessed beauty junkie:

Koji liquid eyeliner $10-16
This eyeliner has a ultra fine yet flexible point tip, which allow greater precision with a easy to handle eyelining experience. The deep dazzling black can accentuate the glamorous eyes of yours, giving you a more defined look. This eyeliner is waterproof, sweat proof and with the quick dry formula, the eyeliner can stay on for hours without a smudge. Your look will be long wearing and gorgeous even without touch-up. 

An assortment of false eyelashes from Korean brand "Darkness" and Japanese brand "Red Cherry" $3-6
Ever since I stopped getting eyelash extensions last year, falsies have become a staple in my makeup regimen. They make your eyes pop and add that extra touch of glamour to your makeup ensemble.  My favorite brands are Darkness and Red Cherry, as the lashes look natural, feel soft and come in a wide array of styles and length.

Sephora Collection Endless Color Blockbuster $48
I got this kit last month and absolutely love it!  The shadows are long-lasting and the colors range from the basics to the vibrantly colorful.  Plus, it's compact enough to take on a trip (I brought this with me to Hong Kong).
