Top 10 Christmas Gifts to Beautinistas

With Christmas just around the corner, I'm sharing a list of great products in different price ranges for the beautinistas in your life. Going from everywhere from $2 to $200, I'm sure that you will find the perfect gift that will suit your budget.

1. Lush- Lush Legend - $200
This is a gift box with a good selection of Lush's best products. This gift box contains products that your loved one will enjoy from head to toe. From shampoo and conditioner, to moisturizing their skin with the body butter after a good soak with the bath bombs; the receiver of the gift will thank you for your generous gift. And what's more? Lush ripped a page of the marketing handbook from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory; there are golden tickets to be found in any gift box that you purchase. Gifts range from gift cards to a tour of the Lush factory in Vancouver.

2. Sephora/ - Clarisonic Mia - $149
The Clarisonic Mia has been out for more than a year now, and many makeup gurus around the world cannot live without their Mia. I've had the Mia now for 2 months and my skin has gotten a lot softer with the Mia. For those of you who don't know what the Mia is, it's like a supersonic toothbrush for your face that gently cleans pores. Word of advice, if you are going to buy the Mia, I would suggest that you also get the delicate brush heads. I find that the normal brush head to be too coarse for my sensitive skin.

3. Philosophy - The Care Package - $110
The care package is a holiday package that comes out during the holidays. It contains six of their most popular products, including Purity Made Simple, Microdelivery Peel Gel and Hope In A Jar. This is a great line that all women should try. The line is a very gentle on the skin and makes your skin nice and smooth.

4. Urban Decay - Naked Palette - $52
The Naked Palette is for women who likes a more neutral eye. The colours are great and the palette is definitely travel friendly. The Naked Palette has been out since 2010 Summer and it is definitely not a new product. But I noticed that Sephora started having the Naked Palette in stock at the stores again. Through out the summer, I never saw the Naked Palette at stores until recently. If the special person in your life was eyeing the palette and was waiting for Sephora to stock up on it and has given up, now is the time to show that you care and surprise her with this great palette.

5. Sephora - Deluxe Sampler for Her - $50
When you don't know what to buy for her, buy her the deluxe fragrance sampler. The kit contains 12 samples of different fragrances for her to try, after trying the fragrances, she can bring the voucher back to Sephora to redeem a fragrance of her choice.

6. Urban Decay - 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil Travel Size Set of Five - $32
Urban Decay released their 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil for a while now, and everyone agrees that this eye pencil is absolutely amazing; the colour pigmentation is great, it doesn't smudge at all, and the pencil just glides on when you put it on, no tugging and pulling. A normal sized eye pencil is 0.04oz at $18 each. Each set comes with five different colours, 0.03oz each, and the set costs $32. You get 5 different colours for the price of 2. There are two sets to choose from.

7. Ebay - Skinfood - Black Sugar Scrub Foam - $13
I love the black sugar scrub foam from Skinfood. As you rub the scrub in, you can feel the scrub melt in your hands. When you rinse the scrub off, you are left with nice clear skin that feels like a baby's bottom.

8. Essie - Nail Polish - Lady Like - $10
I saw this nail polish everywhere a couple of months ago and all the girls had this nail polish on. This is a very nice pink with a bit of lavender in it.

9. ELF - Glossy Gloss - Sweet Salmon - $3
ELF's glossy gloss is a gloss that delivers shine without glitter at $3. The gloss is very pigmented and the gloss is not sticky at all. There is a wide range of colours that will suit many skin tones.

10. ELF - Nail Polish - Champagne - $2
ELF's nail polish is chip resistant at $2 and there is a great variety of colour. When she puts on the nail polish, other people would not even know that it only costs $2. The packaging also looks very sleek, she wouldn't even know that it costs $2.
