Elemis Pro-Collagen Perfection Gift Set


Elemis Pro-Collagen Perfection Gift Set


Elemis does some luxurious skincare kits each year for the holidays and this year’s Pro-Collagen Perfection Gift Set ($189; shop.nordstrom.com) has three of my all time favorite skincare products from Elemis. The packaging is stunning and the box doubles up to store anything from jewelry to collectibles. I love the Pro-Collagen Oxygenating Night Cream - its a rich cream with zero greasiness and leaves my skin feeling super bright and plump the next day. The Pro-Collagen Marine Cream is an all time favorite that works for me all through the year. The Pro-Collagen Hydra Gel Eye Masks are great for anytime you’ve had hardly any sleep and want a quick treat for under the eye area especially if you, like me, tend to have dark circles and fine lines that need constant moisture. Overall, a great kit with two full size products and a sample of the eye mask, which is a nice way to try it out before splurging on the full size.

Laura Mercier Shadows & Brights Metallic Caviar Stick Eye Color Collection | Laura Mercier Holiday 2018


 Laura Mercier Shadows & Brights Metallic Caviar Stick Eye Color Collection | Laura Mercier Holiday 2018


The Laura Mercier Shadows & Brights Metallic Caviar Stick Eye Color Collection ($39; lauramercier.com) is new and a nice little kit for the holidays that comes with four of the metallic Caviar Sticks. The Caviar Sticks are among my favorite cream shadows - they’re easy, super blendable and stay put throughout the day. This kit comes with two of my favorites as well - Amethyst, a gorgeous plum-purple shimmer and Copper, a beautiful coppery-brown with a hint of gold. The other two shades in the kit - Intense Moonlight and Intense Rosegold are great colors for lighter skin tones. Overall, this is such a great kit and a nice way to try out the Caviar Stick formula in a variety of metallic shades.

Kaja Beauty Mochi Glow Bouncy Highlighters



The Mochi Glow Bouncy Highlighters ($19; sephora.com) from Kaja are somethingI’ve been loving if you, like me, prefer a cream based formula and a subtler take on highlighting. They go on sheer, but look a lot beautiful on the cheeks than they do in the pan. The shimmer translates to a dewy sheen and doesn’t enlarge pores or skin texture. Toy Alien is a champagne gold while Prizm is a cool toned shimmery pink.  They are swipe and go products for me that don’t require too much blending at all. While I do love the formula of these, I do wish these were just a tad more carefully pressed since I’ve had them pop off the packaging a couple of times, especially Pirzm. That apart, the formula is fabulous and one of the most subtle, yet natural looking highlighters that are great for the price!
