Holiday Gift Guide Part 2
It's not even December yet, and it seems like so many people have their lights up already and more. It's enough to make you feel behind before the month starts, but don't.
There is lots of time, and Christmas and the shopping for it should be a fun time. Try and enjoy it.
There is a great piece in the December Vogue written by a woman who wanted to do all her shopping at once in a nice store, so she went to the Saks flagship in NY. It's all decorated up and everything is in one place. You may not have a Saks budget, but department stores area great place to shop. Festive and with a wide selection, you can go in and get a lot done at one time.
Ok on to the gifts:
Checking out the Sephora selection in person, I came across 2 great pallettes. First is Napolean Perdis. This pallette is medium sized and has a slide put tray in the bottom. Whats great about this one is it has lipsticks, blush and shadows. Not all palettes have all of those in one. Priced at $ 39.00
Next is the Hard Candy tape pallette. This one is really small and oh so cute. It manages to pack a lot in. A strip of colors for eyes and 3 lip colors. $ 15.00, and it comes in 3 color combos
I also went into The Limited, haven't been to one in awhile, and I came away very impressed with their jewelry/accessory selection. I had to take camera phone photos, but I think you'll get the idea. These reminded me of the MAC Stylistics compacts , at least in color. It would coordinate great with those, or just on it's own. Super for the makeup loving people on the list . It comes in a velvet pouch. $ 12.50
A cute Passport case was another Limited item. I show it in gold metallic, but it comes in many other colors. These are great gifts, because you may not need a passport cover, but they sure are fun. $ 12.50
The Limited also had several really nice clutch purses incl. a heavy metal one that was more a minaudiere. Some pretty earrings and necklaces round out the items.
