Beauty Gift Guide

Beauty Gift Guide on Belle Belle Beauty

Much to celebrate on here today – thanks to the team at EmPress Themes, I am rocking a whole new look. Excited to be back blogging regularly with a sleek appearance and updated features. I now have a Shop Page for you to browse, which is currently stocked with shopping ideas for the holidays, just in time for Cyber Monday. And on that note, EmPress Themes is offering a sale through tomorrow if you are needing to refresh your blog!

If you are here on my corner of the web, likely you yourself are a beauty junkie. I certainly am. But if not, I am sure you have one on your Christmas list. Here are some ideas for your wish list or shopping list from affordable to luxury.

 

AESOP London Kit – a wonderful introduction to the brand and a truly luxe toiletries kit for those new year travels.

GLOW RECIPE Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask – this mask smells great, leaves skin refined and smooth and looks great on the vanity.

TARTE Tartelette Toasted Eyeshadow Palette – I love the finish of these eyeshadows and the shades are neutral and so wearable.

La Mer Mini Miracles Collection – this is my current skin care brand obsession and this relatively price-friendly set allows you to try out some favorite products.

OUAI Hair Care Set – this hair care line smells incredible and plays perfectly with my fine, wavy hair (this might be on my to-me, from-me list).

RMS Beauty Luminizer X Quad – my favorite highlighters all packaged into one neat compact (and they are natural and cruelty-free).

Nest Fragrances Votive Candles – the best holiday candles in my opinion and with this set you get to try some of their non-seasonal scents as well (Holiday, Birchwood Pine, Grapefruit, Bamboo and Sugar Cookie).

MAC Snow Ball Prep + Prime Fix+ Kit – I snagged this on Black Friday without having tried Fix+ and am already a fan of the refreshing spray to prime or revive makeup throughout the day.

LE LABO Discovery Set – I am getting a couple of these for my friends who love Santal on me, but need to check out some of Le Labo’s other super-popular scents.

SLIP Embroidered Silk Eye Mask – I received SLIP’s pillow case last Christmas and am angling for the skin care-friendly eye mask this year. It looks pretty enough to wear on a long flight.

Jo Malone London Cologne Collection – I started wearing these fifteen years ago and they still are a favorite. This set is a perfect way to reacquaint with an old staple.

Tata HarperWinter Wonders Set – if RMS is my favorite natural color brand, Tata Harper is my favorite natural skin care brand. This set has such a nice array of products for winter skin.

Tom Dixon London, Orientalist and Royalty Set – these candles are almost too pretty to burn, but if you do, your house will be filled with sophisticated and warm fragrance.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer in White – the hottest beauty product of the season, this ultra-luxe hair dryer is a dream to use and will make your morning routine so much easier.

Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Palette – she knows her face products and this palette is packed with shades and colors that look wonderful on a wide range of skin tones. Plus, I am a huge fan of cream formula on winter skin.

Wednesday On The Web

I have a serious case of wanderlust on my mind. More than once, I have almost hit purchase on a last-minute weekend getaway. But I didn’t let it get the best of me. I decided to save for something really fabulous in 2018. Puglia, Bali, a Canadian cruise, perhaps? Meanwhile, I will be dreaming of being on the beach above. Some links from my internet trolling this week:

Dangerous beauty ingredients.

I am totally hooked on Halo Top ice cream and they just released seven new flavors!

This spa visit sounds dreamy (and the products are packaged so beautifully).

My favorite summer sandals in gold.
