Best Christmas Gifts for MOM

I've come up with a small list of makeup products any mom will love this Christmas! There was a bit of a delay on posting this because my laptop shit the bed, but enjoy!


Inglot Rainbow Eyeshadows

These eyeshadows are amazing, not only because they're of MAC quality, but they are matte, and you get 3 different shades in one! You can either buy the pots by themselves (w/out any packaging) for $7.00 each, or buy them with the palette, but they are a bit pricey depending on how many pots you want in each palette (inglotcosmetics.com) There are many browns and neutrals to choose from (which most moms will love) and I love that they have an ash toned one (perfect for cool skin). I'm praying that one day UD will release an all matte Naked Palette...oh, how we were fooled with the new release of Naked 2.  Having too much shimmer on your eyes can emphasize wrinkles, and an all matte palette is nearly impossible to find. So why not make your own? :D

Freedom System Palette 2 Eye Shadow Square (empty 2 pot palette)- $6.00


Freedom System Eye Shadow Rainbow- $7.00 ea



IMO, 6 matte shadows for $20 is a pretty decent deal. You really aren't going to find anything as unique as this. The shipping and the palette itself is kind of a rip, but since it is a gift, you want it to look nice and packaged well. I bought my mom 116 and 117.

NYX Megashine Lipglosses- $3.75 ea


These cost LESS than $4 each at Beautyjoint.com. With a wide array of colors which are highly pigmented, these are by far my favorite lipglosses, especially for the price, and they are definitely my HG lipglosses. These shades are a must-have and they are a bang for your buck! The cherry scent is a bit much for some people but I like it, it makes me feel like I'm 5 years old. lol






ELF Cream Liner- Coffee- $3

I think a brown or gray eyeliner is the way to go for someone with mature skin because black can look harsh and scary. This cream liner is pigmented pretty well, and applies pretty evenly. Coffee is quite rich and looks pretty natural on the lash line. Only $3 at target and eyeslipsface.com.



ELF Studio Angeled Eyeliner Brush- $3

Unlike most eyeliner brushes with a bent tip, this one has very stiff bristles, which is better if you're working with skin that has more elasticity or if your cream/gel liner is drying up. I must admit that cream liner doesn't always apply evenly with this brush, (you gotta keep going over it sometimes for it to show up) but the lines can come out thinner, more precise, neat and I actually prefer it over the Coastal Scents one and the Sonia Kashuk one. They sell these at Target.

ELF Studio Daily Brush Cleaner- $3
If your mom uses brushes on a daily basis, she definitely needs to spot clean them. It contains alcohol that disinfects your brushes and removes most of the remaining residue on your brush by spraying it on the hairs, and wiping it on a towel after every application. Can't beat the price. Eyeslipsface.com. I haven't seen it at Target :(

Benefit Posietint or Benetint- $29
As we age our skin gets dryer and some of us get visible pores on our face. Cream blushes are great for dry skin but if you have pores on your cheeks, that will only emphasize them. The only solution I have found for that is a cheek stain. They work well on every skin type and can also be used as a lip stain. This one is a bit pricey but it should a VERY long time. The only downside to this product is that it's glass, so if your mom is ridiculously clumsy or blind, I wouldn't recommend this. They also have a darker rosey shade called Benetint, check them out at Sephora.


MAC Fix+ Spray- $10 

Love, love, love this stuff. This spray works excellent on dry skin because it gives you that amazing glowy/dewy finish. It's smells like an old lady, but it isn't overpowering, and it smooths over the flaky dry spots on your face. You also get a good amount of product for the price. MACcosmetics.com.


Smashbox Photofinish Primer- $36

FACT: Everyone that has wrinkles and pores needs a primer. It creates a smooth, silky canvas on your skin so your foundation/concealer doesn't settle into pores and fine lines. This formula is silicone based and can be quite heavy on the skin. Smashbox has several different formulas and sizes all of which you can get at Sephora or Sephora.com.

Cute Basket And A Bow??


Throw it all in a gift basket, maybe add her favorite perfume, decorate it, and top it with a bow! She can also re-use the basket for decoration or storage.
