Makeup Monday: Stocking Stuffers


Top Row:

1) Dior Addict Lipstick, $28 - A gloss and lipstick hybrid. I'm especially fond of Diorkiss, a sheer, rosy pink.

2) MAC Russian Red, $14.50 - On my quest for the perfect red lipstick, I couldn't find one that beat Russian Red. It's matte but not drying, has a slight sheen that gives it dimension and it lasts all day.

 3) Clinique Almost Lipstick in Black Honey, $14.50 - In the tube, this looks intimidatingly dark, but it's sheer and flattering. It makes you look like you just had a bowl of cherries.
 
4) Smith's Rosebud Salve, $5.59 - Super moisturizing with a hint of rose fragrance.
 
5) MAC Prep + Prime Lip, $15 - What do I always say about primer? It's worth the extra step! 



Bottom Row:
6) Burt's Bees beeswax lip balm, $2.99 - I always have one of these in my pocket, my purse, my windowsill, my desk drawer...I probably have at least ten of them stashed in different places.
 
7) Urban Decay Super-Saturated High Gloss Lip Color, $19 - I recommend Crush or Punch Drunk (shown in the picture). See them in action here.

8) Laura Mercier Lip Stain, $20 - I wouldn't necessarily call this a lip stain; it's more like a lipstick/balm in a pot with a lot of staying power. 

9) Julie Hewett Cheekie Cheek and Lip Shine, $24 - Possibly my favorite lip (and cheek) product of all time. 

10) Bobbi Brown Lip Color - Bobbi Brown is my go-to for neutral lip colors, but I haven't tried a shade I didn't like. Rose is an all-time favorite!
 
 
1) Conair Curling Iron 1.25", $19.99 - Perfect for making loose waves.
 
2) Bumble and Bumble Surf Spray, $23 - Beachy hair. Enough said.

3) Arrojo Shine Spray, $17 - Makes your hair shiny, not greasy. Spray it in your hands and smooth through your hair.

4) Giant Dwarf Starlette Sparkler in Confetti, $15 - A handmade, glittery treat for your hair. Want even more sparkle? Go for the crown.



1) Deborah Lippmann nail polish in Happy Birthday, $18 - It's a party for your nails!

2) Ginger + Liz nail polish in Swagger, $12 - Doesn't the name say it all? Bonus: Ginger + Liz are vegan-friendly and non-toxic.

3) French tip guides, $2.39 - These make french tips a cinch. I like to do an updated, colorful version.

4) Orly Bonder basecoat, $10 - My sister Amanda introduced me to this rubberized basecoat. It gives your polish something to adhere to and definitely makes it last longer.

  24. I love the Laura Mercier lip stain! You are right; it's not exactly a stain, but it's nice and creamy and non-drying. Excellent choices!

    For others looking for a good red, I also have the MAC matte ruby woo, which is a lovely fire engine vintagey red.
