Holiday Gift Guide

Tis’ the season for gifts of beauty! Flip through the slideshow to check out my picks for my holiday wish list.


Korres The Lip Blockbuster Volume II: These lip butters and lip glazes are a long time favorite. This collection covers a range of wearable colors that you can mix and match. Plus, the smell can’t be beat.

Best of Hourglass Set: I’m a long time fan of this brand and this set covers most of my favorites. Their primers are a best of breed. Film Noire Mascara does it all. And their lip glosses are shiny without being sticky. This would be perfect for those on your list that have a winter getaway planned – perfect little kit for on the go.

Laura Mercier Signature Holiday Scented Votive Candle Collection: I am a sucker for Laura’s gourmand scents. This collection features four travel sized votives in Crème Brulée, Fresh Fig, Warm Roasted Chestnuts, and exclusive Tarte au Citron in glass tumblers.

Limited Edition Kenny Scharf Creme de Corps: I am embarrassed to admit this was the first time I’ve tried the infamous body lotion and I see what the fuss is about. This rich, straight forward creme is exactly what winter dry skin needs. And this limited edition by Iconic Pop Surrealist, Kenny Scharf, will support RxArt,  a non-profit organization committed to fostering artistic expression for young patients in pediatric hospitals.

diptyque The Arabian Nights Candle Collection: These exotic and festive candles conjure far away places in stunning decorated glasses. Not only to they look goreous… the spruce, amber oud and frankincense are sophisticated and seasonal.

kate spade new york ‘sprinkles’ lip crayons: Leave it to the team at kate spade to come up with the most adorable set of lip crayons. The shades are perfect for the holiday season. And partnering with the lipstick queen, Poppy King, insures these formulas are top notch.

NARS ‘Andy Warhol’ Edie Gift Set: This collaboration has already gone down in the history books as one of the most iconic. This particular set (housed in a 16mm film canister – how cool!) features classic feminine shades. Includes: Film Star Pure Matte Lipstick in ’60s Nude Pink, Eyeshadow Cream in Edie, Stylo Eyeliner in Carpates and a Blush Duo in Deep Throat and Amour.
