Is there anything better than makeup? All those brushes, colors and products that take you from “Oy Vey” to “Hot Damn!” I love makeup (LOVE it), so I can think of nothing I want more this year than lots and lots of it.
Below are just a few of the things on top of my holiday wish list. Yeah, we’re in a major recession but what’s the point of making a wish list if you are going to be practical about it? A girl can dream can’t she?
Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf – $150 Saks Fifth Ave
This obviously floral perfume is extremely sexy and opulent. It’s wearable but so rich that, well, it even smells expensive.
Clarisonic Skincare Brush – $195 Sephora.com
If you are serious about skincare this facial brush is definitely worth the investment. It’s truly luxury meets practicality. Nothing cleans your face more gently and effectively. Perfect for all skin types, and can even combat stubborn cystic acne.
Fredderic Fekkai Advanced Overnight Hair Repair – $195 Saks Fifth Ave
This product is hair magic in a bottle. It has smart technology that actually seeks out and targets weak and damaged sections of the hair shaft and rebuilds them. You might want to make some extra batches of cookies for Santa if you’re hoping for this in your stocking.
Guerlain – Illuminating Finishing Powder – $160 Neiman Marcus
Now is there any real measurable difference between this finishing powder and the others in Guerlain’s meteorite collection that are less than half the price? Not really, other than the cute butterflies and silver reusable compact. But can you really put a price on glamour?
Bobbi Brown Exclusive Trunk – $2,000 (yes that’s two-thousand) Neiman Marcus
Okay so you will have to have a rich and generous daddy (or sugar daddy) to find this gift under your tree. But if you can convince him, you would have more makeup than you could ever want or need for some time to come. R
