holiday gift guide, beauty gift guide, under $50

Did I ever tell you that I was a beauty product junkie?  Well, I AM.  Anyhow, I wanted to share some of my beauty faves that I’m sure will translate to your gift receivers fave!  And everything, except for ONE and EIGHT, are under $50!  Woo hoo!

ONE // Guerlain Meteorites Perles and Brush // I have this gorgeous finishing powder and the act on dusting it on is an art in itself!  It makes you feel so glamorous, and you’re left with a beautiful glow!

TWO // RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek //  Do you know how I feel about multi-use items?  This is ONE of my FAVES and is always in my makeup bag!

THREE // Pai Rosehip Oil //  This is a life-changing oil.  I ran out before placing an order and it was very apparent in my face.  It is natural but delivers potent trans-retinoic acid (basically vitamin A) to the skin for repair.

FOUR // ILIA Beauty Tinted Lip Conditioner //  This is on my wish list to try!  I got it and it is as amazing as everyone claims!  Apparently Arabian Knights is the color that works well on every one!

FIVE // BKR Bottle // Every beauty queen knows that HYDRATION is the key to beautiful glowing skin.  That’s why these adorable silicone covered glass bottles are a MUST HAVE!

SIX // Kate Somerville Exfolikate //  Throw away every exfoliator that you’ve ever tried because Exfolikate is the holy grail of exfoliators!  It is gentle enough for my sensitive / eczema skin!  Good stuff.

SEVEN // Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish // I was obsessed with finding the perfect GOLD polish until I found this.  It is opaque and a golden hue that is perfect for the holidays {and summer to show off that tan}!!

EIGHT // Charlotte Tilbury Stars on the Go Palette //  The makeup artist who has touch faces of Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and any of the gorgeous super models that you’ve seen has come out with her own line!  I am dying to try this palette.

NINE // Stila Beso All Day Lipstick //  Best.Red.EVER.  Enough said!


Rxoxo, Sam

    ONE is a must! I splurged on this for a birthday present to myself and LOVE it. I use it everyday as a finishing powder.
