It’s only October? Just about the time to start making a list and checking it twice. Fret not, I’ve done the heavy work for you. From now until Christmas I’ll be sprinkling in posts that showcase the perfect stocking stuffers for beauty lovers. Simply give out these favorites to end up on everyone’s nice list for next year!
Friends, take note: There isn’t a woman alive that can’t use a good kabuki brush, and Sigma Makeup has the cutest around.
A good kabuki makes powdering pleasurable. Dense brushes keep their shape, pick up fine particles and places them easily and evenly across the skin. Sigma’s kabuki ($25) is high quality with a dense base, super soft no-shed bristles, and a cover to keep them from getting bent. This is my biggest peeve with kabukis, because if there is a cover the bristles always get damaged. Sigma’s slider base keeps everything in order, and in a fancy purple, pink, red and black option.
What an upgrade? Go for this option instead:
The Hollywood Glamour Kit ($49) comes with an easy to clean soft carrying case, a kabuki brush and a darling mirror compact. Enjoy storing your Sigma makeup brushes in the case too, but I recommend carry-on for air travel. I know someone in TSA is enjoying my set right now!
Purchase any of these items and a wonderful selection of affordable, good quality makeup brushes at SigmaBeauty.com
The Gossip Girl limited edition collection from Nicole by OPI consists of gorgeous steels & teals that are flattering to most skin tones
I don’t know how I’d describe this Gossip Girl collection, other than drop dead gorgeous. These rich blues with hues of silver and green are stunning! From left to right, they are:
- Party in the Penthouse (silver teal)
- Scandals, Secrets and Sparkle (grey glitter mix)
- Too Rich for You (inky dark)
- Nicole…Spotted! (green/blue glitter mix)
Party in the Penthouse is my favorite, and when using Nicole…Spotted! you get a very pretty green cast. The photo shows just one coat, but I love laying this on thick 😉
Staying power is very good, except for tip wear (shows up pretty quickly).
Nicole by OPI is available at Target and Walgreens.
