Holidays Gift Guide: theBALM Nude Tude Eye Shadows Palette

You can’t really go wrong with a neutral eye shadows palette. Especially with  such a gorgeous one as theBALM’s  Nude Tude.  I also love how they have two designs: Naughty and Nice so you can choose the one your friend (or you if you are getting it for yourself) likes better. Needless to say that I like Naughty variant  myself…

There are twelve shades: Sassy, Stubborn, Selfish, Sophisticated, Sexy, Serious, Snobby, Stend-offish, Sultry,  Schitzo, Silly and Sleek.

The price is $36. These are already available at theBALM website and they ship International for $20.   Some European on-line shops stock theBALM so you can also wait until(if) they have it.

Holiday Gift Guide: Tweezerman Luxe Edition Crystal Slant Tweezers

Keeping your eye brows is a good shape is essential and is a key to a nice look. This is why a pair of tweezers is a must have. I personally have a lot of different tweezers and I can’t see myself without them.

A good pair of tweezers will last you a life time so don’t be afraid to invest in one (or more if you love variety). This is why a pair of Tweezerman tweezers  would make a great holiday gift.

Now the price of these Tweezerman’s award-winning Slant tweezers is definitely on a high end. They retail for $100!* This sounds a lot but remember that they will last you for ages. I personally am still using the tweezers my Mum got when she was a student (not Tweezerman though).

I understand that paying $100 for tweezers sounds a bit crazy but since it’s a present for Christmas  that is a good excuse.  Plus

Besides the Holiday collection NARS released these amazing sets. These (Kabuki sets) don’t come cheap but they will make a great holiday gift in my opinion.

The most exciting sets are Nagauta Kabuki brush set (£160) which includes  Kabuki Eye Brush (exclusive to the set), Botan Brush, Ita Brush, Yachiyo Brush, Kabuki Lip (exclusive to the set) and Kudoki Kabuki mini lip set (£90) which includes tlip shades, Kabuki lip brush, wooden box.

There are are three more sets

Holiday Gift Guide: Aqua Di Parma Candles

Candles are always one of the best beauty related gift to get for your friends and family. Almost everyone loves candles. And there are so many to choose from, for myself I would probably get these but there are some other that look great.

Just take a look at these beauties. They are hand decorated!  Each is 1000gr and the burn time is 60 hours. On the photo below you can see Decorated Candle Red Berries – Precious Wood and Decorated Candle Rose Buds – Rose, each is £69.

There is a also a collection of cube candles
