Do you have a beauty junkie on your Christmas list? Well look no further for gift ideas because all  of these items have been put to the test, and passed with flying colors. Any of these items would make great gifts for the beauty product lover in your life.

Marcelle 3 in 1 Make Up Remover (w/ pump)
Okay so the pump on this make up removing and cleansing product from Marcelle might not seem like it’s not that big of a deal, but it’s actually the coolest and the easier thing ever! I love this product, and I know any beauty junkie would love it too. It works wonders to remove eye makeup, and you can use it as a cleanser too and bonus no rinsing required. Yep lazy girls (or tired moms) rejoice because this is going to be your newest favorite product.
Cake Beauty Rush Brush
For any girl who has bangs, oily hair, or is it into fitness this product is a major win (read full review here). It absorbs oil without a lot of bulk, or making it feel even more dirty.  Also the smell is so fresh, and it’s portable so you can lug it around with you easily where ever you go. Get it here >> Cake Beauty
EOS Hand Lotion 
Yeah this stuff is amazing! And as I mentioned before in this previous post (read that here) I love it’s cool shape and its refreshing fragrance! Also 95% organic. Get it here >> Most major drug stores, Walmart, Target etc.
Neostrata Glycolic Renewal  Smoothing 5%
For anyone who suffers from break outs or can’t use traditional scrubs for whatever reason having a cream that does all the exfoliating for you is a major win. My skin is super sensitive, so I like to alternate this Neostrata product every other night, but I love the results! Try it for yourself, get it here >> Shoppers Drug Mart.
Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy
While I was in Toronto for fashion week I attended a Juicy Couture event, and I instantly fell in love with this fragrance (no I wasn’t drunk on Champagne and macrons at 11am in case you were wondering), and I’ve been wearing it ever since. Love love.  Get it here >> Sephora.
Body Shop Dolly Pastels Eyeshadow Palette 
This four shade pastel eyeshadow palette is really great for fall/winter! With some warm golds and browns these shades look great on anyone, and at $20 it’s a pretty good deal.  Get it here >> The Body Shop 
OPI Naiy Envy
Okay so your girl changes her nail polish as much as she changes her mind, so why not get her something that’s good for her nails!! OPI Nail Envy contains proteins and wheat to give your nails super strength against breaking, and chipping!  Get it here >> Most major spas, and locally in Halifax at The Summit Spa.

Marcelle Eyeshadow Palette 

Another palette I’m loving is this cute little Marcelle eyeshadow trio. I absolutely LOVE the highlighter shade for under your brows and the inner corners of your eyes for added brightness.  Play around with the colors too! There’s no strict formula πŸ™‚ Get it here >> Shoppers Drug Mart, and most major drug stores.

Moroccanoil Oil Hydration Blow Dry Cream 
When traveling to NYC last summer I needed something that was light weight, but good quality that I could throw in my bag, and know that I wasn’t lugging my entire bathroom with me on a plane. Of all the products in the travel kit, the hydration blow dry cream was the star, and I’m still using it today when I wash my hair! I LOVE LOVE LOVE it. I apply it to the bottom of my hair after washing, and before blow drying and I really find it helps to add moisture to the ends of my hair while also making it super soft, and easier to detangle. Get it here >> Amazon

Kevin Murphy Body Mass 
For anyone who has thin or thinning hair this product is for you. I use this product every single time I wash my hair, and it does wonders in terms of adding volume to my fine hair especially around my hairline (where I find my hair is very fine). There are also added ingredients in this product that helps stimulate hair growth, so win/win right? Get it here >> Kevin Murphy

Maybeline Matte Lipstick – “Siren in Scarlet”

Matte and creamy this lipstick doesn’t quit, but it also doesn’t dry out either. Since I picked this up I’ve been wearing it non-stop. This shade of red is actually my favorite to date! And at about 6$ it’s also very affordable.  Get it here >> Target

Annabelle Lip Liner (self sharpening)

So lip liners are a lot of times thought of a thing of the past, but I’ve recently gotten back into using them, and I wish I had sooner. Now you should know I don’t just outline my lips I pretty much fill them in entirely with the liner, and then use a lipstick over top. I don’t know if this makes sense to you or not, but I feel like this helps to avoid the whole two toned “traced” look that probably comes to mind when you think of lip liners. You’d never know I used an lip liner and that’s how I like it, but for application purposes it makes applying lipstick to my thin lips a lot easier. I use the “glam red”, and did I mention its self sharpening?  Get it here >>  Most major pharmacies or annabelle.ca

Jane Iredale Primer and Brightner

The best primer I’ve used to date. Everything you apply after this product looks better, and stays longer. It’s a major win, and a must for any beauty junkie.  Get it here >> JaneIredale.com and locally at The Spirit Spa.

GM Colin – 3D Lifting Cream 
This product is like a magic wand, when I use this product at night, and I wake up in the morning my skin looks rested, but it also just looks really healthy and clear! Get it here >> gmcolin.com

Lancome Blush 

We all know I love me some lancome blush, and with so many pretty colors, and it lasts ALL day! It’s almost the only blush that I wear. I don’t even look at other blushes because I know there’s nothing better πŸ™‚  Get it here >> Sears, Sephora, lacome.ca

Body Shop Gift Pack

Looking for a gift under $50? The Body Shop has something like 75 gift ideas, and with all the different scents there’s definitely something there for the beauty junkie on your list. I love these little gift sets with their signature body butter, body mists, and lip balm. Get it here >> The Body Shop
