Those who love beauty can’t get enough of it. But in the spirit of giving, advicesisters.com staff shared what they’d like to be getting!
These “lucky 7” should be on your gift list… or buy them for yourself!
Festive, Colorful Nails:
Morgan Taylor Little Miss Nutcracker Favorite Eight ($24.95) arrives in an impressive box with a tree-shaped cut-out showcasing eight mini-sized Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquers.
We’ve recently reviewed the Gelish Mini and Morgan Taylor Nail Lacquer colors from Little Miss Nutcracker. But this holiday set, boxed like ornaments on a tree, features beautiful colors for every occasion!
The colors are: Pop-arrazi (opaque bright pink) Pose, Water Baby (opaque sea green), Don’t Worry Be Brilliant (opaque peach), All White Now(opaque white), N-ice Girls Rule (soft glittery pink), No Way Rose (glitzy copper), Wonder Woman (shimmered ruby red) and Fame Game parti-colored glitter) are particularly holiday festive!
Mind Your Lips!
Dermalogica has created a Limited Edition AGE Smart Lip Smoothing Duo ($27/$45 value) done up in festive holiday finery featuring two great products!
Renewal Lip Complex (in a swivel-up tube with plastic applicator top) helps to smooth and restore lips and minimize those “lines.”
The Nightly Lip Treatment (in a slant-tipped tube) provides an anti-aging formula to smooth laugh and feather lines while you sleep.
These feel so pampering and the set makes a fabulous gift for anyone who wants soft lips and fewer lines.
You can also apply the Renewal Lip Complex before lipstick applications to prep lips ..and give your lips the moisture they need.

Two Party-Perfect Beauty Goodies By Japonesque
This Japonesque Kumadori Ombre Highlighter ($29 ) is one of those items you might not know you’ll need or love, until you try it in person.
The large, limited edition, ombre highlighter starts with a tinted Golden Pearl and graduates in color all the way to Bronze Pearl to customize how much “glow” you like.
Try the lighter, Golden Pearl in Winter and Spring for subtle highlighting, the Bronze Pearl in Summer or Fall for a little more intensity, or swipe your kabuki brush over the whole thing for a medium color that is universally flattering.
Inside a triangular cello box in red and black are three soft, blend-able, intense metallic eye pencils. There is a superb Metallic Black, plus glitzy Metallic Silver and Metallic Gold.
The pencils are soft and easy to apply, but also water-resistant and smudge-resistant so you won’t end up with “black eyes” at the end of the evening.

Sephora’s Affordable (but fab) Beauty Gifts
Sephora’s Dark Rainbow Ready in Five-Brush Set ($28/ $55 value) is a glitzy gift that’s affordable amd fun.
Presented for gifting in a clear cello box with silver edges you’ll find a set of four of the most popular makeup brushes: Powder, Crease, shadow and angled liner.
What’s really special (besides the bright purple ferules) is the iPhone sized glitter clutch that holds the synthetic (cruelty-free) brushes and there’s room for your business cards, a few mini lip pencils, or your cash!
It’s what’s inside that excited us so much: a half dozen, bold colors of mini-sized lip products from some of your favorite brands: Bite Beauty Matte Creme Lip Crayon in Aubergine (clear deep berry); Ciate London Liquid Velvet in Head Over Heels” (a bold bright red); Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in “Dammed” (very dark “goth” plum); Laura Mercier Velour Lovers Lip Colour in “An Affair ” (dark wine), Sephora Rouge Cream in #49 “Belly-Dancing” (creamy shiny bright red) and Tarte Tarteist Creamy Matte Lip Paint in “Yaassss” (very dark berry).
What’s so great (and fun) about this affordable gift for lippie lovers is that you can try different formulas and trendy deep colors without having to buy the larger sizes first.
They are all petite enough to pop into a pocket or tiny evening bag for touch-ups.

A Shining Star for Skin!
The Shining Stars Gift Set ($18) from My Chelle features travel-friendly sizes of three popular items: the new Perfect C Cleansing oil (1 fl. oz.) Perfect C Serum (.17 fl. oz) and Fruit Enzyme Hydrating Mist (1 fl. oz.).
We love the cleansing oil (you’ll want the full 4.2 oz. size after you try it) with L-Ascorbic Acid, Baobob, and Tamanu Oil.
Oil cleansers are a hot item because they hydrate, condition and cleanse without stripping skin but they won’t cause breakouts.
Shake the bottle well before you use it, add a few pumps to wet hands, lather, massage onto skin, rinse.
We reviewed the MyChelle Perfect C Serum earlier this season (read review)
What makes this serum exceptional is the stable 25% ascorbic acid can help to reduce the signs of aging because it has amazing anti-aging antioxidant properties that help revitalize mature or damaged skin.
Even better, it is made without GMO, Gluten, Parabens, Petroleum, Phthalates, Silicones, Sulfates, Ureas, Artificial Fragrances, and Artificial Colors. Vegan. Cruelty-free
We didn’t try the Fruit Enzyme Hydrating Mist MyChelle Fruit Enzyme Hydrating Mist but it is a multi-tasking mist that refreshes, moisturizes and protects skin.
The ingredients include witch hazel, essential oils, and antioxidants. The fruit enzymes help to hydrate while Vitamin C to protect against free radicals. It’s good for any kind of skin. Use it when you travel as a skin pick me up.
