Holiday Wish List

Wow.  I still can't believe that 2011 is almost over and that the holidays are here. If you're still working on your wish list, here are five things to consider:

Clinique's Black Honey Glow ($28.50): I  have had a pretty long-term love affair with Clinique's Black Honey.  I use it on my lips at least a few times each week, so it's no surprise that I love this kit.  You get mascara, blush, lipgloss, and an eyeshadow duo....everything you need for the perfect face.  And the shades are going to rock and be very flattering...it IS Black Honey, after all!

mark On the Dot Natural Eye Color Compact ($15): finding the perfect eyeshadow shades is an on-going quest for me.  I like a wide range of neutrals to play with (to dress up or dress down, as my mood or the occasion dictates). This compact includes 9 of mark's best sellers, so getting the right look will be a snap!

Sephora by OPI Glimmer Wonderland 18-Piece Mini Nail Colour Set ($48): this is the perfect gift set if you're like me and you paint your nails every week. For the cost of a few mani's you can get 18 different colors to play with.  The shades included range from fun and flirty to classic.  I bet you'd be happy to get this under your tree!  

Rembrandt Deeply White 2 Hour Kit (about $22): white teeth are always in, and this is the perfect addition to your beauty routine this season. The Deeply White 2 Hour Whitening Kit is a fast, enamel-safe way to whiten your smile in just two hours.  I've spent a ton of money (and time) on dental work in 2011, so making my teeth look great is high on my list as of late. Head over to the Rembrandt website for deets...and for a coupon!
BirchBox (amounts vary; you can get a year for $110): this is the gift that keeps on giving!  Every month, you'll get a lovely little box filled with high end beauty samples.  I gave myself this and look forward to what's inside every month.  You can also buy products from their website and get discounts on featured products.  You never know what you'll find with this!

Are you still shopping? You might want to consider checking out sites like HauteLook.  Every day, they offer great deals and, often, products from some of the best prestigue cosmetics companies.

I just used the Rembrant 2-Hour Whitening kit the other day, and while it didn't make a HUGE difference, the effects are definitely noticeable. Good pick!

If you wouldn't mind checking out my brand new blog, I'd love to hear some tips from a more experienced blogger! We seem to have similar tastes, so I'd appreciate it if you'd stop by and give me any pointers you may have!
