Holiday Gift Guide for Makeup Lovers ~ Lips

I really wish it would not have taken me so long to get this last installment of the gift guide up, but I was sick so my blogging schedule flew right out the window. I’m still a bit sick but well enough to finally gather my thoughts enough to begin posting again.

So as the title say this is the lips gift guide – quite possibly the best of the gift guides, which is why I saved it for last. I will try to keep this as brief as possible, but no promises because I love lippies. Additionally, since I waited so long to get this posted there are many items I would have included that are now sold out. Fortunately there are still a ton of great options available.

charlotte tilbury

The Charlotte Tilbury K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Mini Lipstick Charm Trio, $39, is impossibly cute. Also it’s Charlotte Tilbury so you know the lipsticks are great quality. Admittedly the value per ounce is not as good as buying one of her full size lipsticks but you get three colors so I’m sure the additional packaging factors into the price somehow.

urban decay set

The Urban Decay Full Frontal Lipstick Stash is an online only set of 6 gorgeous revolution lipsticks and a clear lipliner that will go with all of them! I love lipstick minis because honestly when was the last time you finishes a lipstick? It doesn’t happen often and at $39 this set is a great value.

Not only does the Nars Digital World Lip Pencil Coffret, $49, come with 5 amazing Nars lip pencils in gorgeous colors, but you also get an amazing keepsake box. I really loved the Nars packaging this year – so glamorous and unique.

Marc Jacobs. Do I need to say more? The Marc Jacobs Kiss Pop Lacquer Collector’s Edition, $300, is phenomenally packaged in silver mirrored bullets and comes with nearly any color you would ever need. This is a high-end gift with a steep price tag but I guarantee you, the beauty lover you buy this for will but shocked and amazed.

tom ford set

If you lipstick lover in your life is really addicted to luxury the Tom Ford Lip Color Set, $200, is the route to go. Prepare yourself as you will be kissed all over your face when they open this.

napoleon perdis

If you are looking to gift glosses the set  you need to buy is the Napoleon Perdis Megamix Lip Gloss Collection, $55. You get quite the range of nudes and a few amazing brights as well as a precious makeup bag.

Perhaps you would like to pamper your lippie lover. In that case the Fresh Dare to Bare Sugar Lip Ritual, $45, literally contains  any products they would need for lip care.

If you are going to give just one lipstick you need need need (!) to gift a Nars Audacious Lipstick. These babies are $32 a pop and are completely worth it. Any of every color is gorgeous. You cannot go wrong with this gift.

December 2014 Birchbox ~ TheLoDown x Birchbox

December 2014 birchbox

Hey yall hey! Long time no blog. I’ve been so sick all weekend and so busy at work this past week. It was nice to finally get to sit down and film even though I’m still sick. My blogging schedule has gotten so backed up and it’s making me feel a bit cray-cray.

This month’s box was a bit of a toss-up and I’m overall a bit disappointed. We will see how the products pan out once I actually start using them.

Products in this month’s box:

Cynthia Rowley Beauty Creamy Lip Stain in Heartthrob
Embryolisse Lait-Crème Concentré
Davines Replumping Hair Filler Superactive
Davines Replumping Shampoo
Davines Replumping Conditioner
Joie Folle de Joie Eua de Parfum
Ruffian Nail Lacquer in Ruffian Red


D.I.Y. Bauble Wreath

I made my own wreath for our door this year and I have to say I am so obsessed with how it came out! It was super easy and you can find out how to make your own below.

Holiday Gift Guide for Makeup Lovers ~ Eyes

Admittedly I am not the biggest eyeshadow fan. It’s not that I dislike eyeshadow, its more so that I am just too lazy to put it on most mornings. That being said I still know makes a great product so here are a few of my choices for fabulous eye makeup gifts.

Lorac Pro 2

 The first Lorac Pro palette has been out for a few years so chances are the makeup lover in your life already owns it. The Lorac Pro 2, $42, is a newer release from the brand and unlike the disappointingly limited Lorac Mega Pro palette, you won’t need to sell your firstborn child to get one.

makeup geek

 Makeup Geek eyeshadows have basically taken over the world since the minute they were released. The Ultimate Eyeshadow Palette, $159.99, comes with 27 eyeshadows and a Z-Palette. This is  an awesome gift to kickstart your makeup lover’s Makeup Geek collection.

UD Vice 3

 Urban Decay releases a lot of palettes, like literally more than I can even remember. This is the Vice 3 palette, $60, and of palettes with colors and neutrals mixed this third rendition of the Vice palette is by far my favorite. The colors and arrangement, in my opinion, just make a lot of sense. This is just a really well-rounded palette. It’s great if you want to gift a palette that has a little bit of everything.

2014 lash stash

 Sephora releases the Lash Stash, $45, every year and I think it’s one of the best sets they put together. Mascara spoils and dries out relatively quickly so you can never have too many. I love that this set gives the recipient a chance to experience many different brands and they fun thing about this year’s set is that it comes with a lash primer and makeup remover.

Bon Voyage

 I wanted to mention this set even though it’s sold out on right now. There is an option to be emailed when it’s back in stock so that leaves me hopeful that they will get the Tarte Bon Voyage Collector’s Set, $59, back in stock. This comes with many products from the Tarte brand but the star here is the eyeshadow palette. The color selection is gorgeous and the fact that you get everything else with the set is just a bonus.

UD Eyeliners

Everyone knows someone obsessed with colorful eyeliner. Urban Decay has one of the largest color selections and in this 24/7 Glide On Pencil Set, $52, you get 10 different shades and a sharpener. You really can’t go wrong with this set. Any makeup lover would love this.

Naked Basics 2

 I know, I know. This list has been packed full of Urban Decay products, but they are just sooo good! My last choice for eye product gifts is the Naked Basics 2 palette, $29. This is just an overall great palette for everyone. It’s great for a quick neutral look or for supplementing a colorful eye. I played with this in Sephora a few weeks ago and now I really want it.
