Looking for a special Holiday scent for anyone? I always have trouble with this one. Scent is such a personal thing and it’s difficult figuring out what someone will and won’t love no matter how much you keep them in the forefront of your mind when purchasing. I know my own senses take over and I begin selecting scents that would appeal to me and not the person I am gifting.
If you happen to be in the market for a softer, feminine floral you might want to check out Twirl by Kate Spade. I told you about it months ago and really it was all about the name for me at the time since Kate Spade is one my fav designers. I own a few of her more whimiscal purses and bags but none of that follows through in her fragrance. Twirl is more about capturing soft floral notes and bottling them up into a garden bouquet.
The Body Shop The Sparkler sold out online before I could blink my eye. Damn! It’s the Holy Grail of Holiday Makeup at the moment and damn near impossible to find (I checked a few stores with no luck).
Moral of the story?
If you see it, BUY it. It’s worth its weight in Scrooge’s gold!
Look under my vanity sink and in my wash room cabinets and closet and you’ll find any number of cleansing oil bottles. Meaning I don’t need more.
However, present me with a bottle of the new Shu Uemura Abracadabra Fantasy Cleansing Oil and I can get excited. Aya Takano lends a hand in the creation of this year’s Holiday Collection and created a beautiful princess riding her magical stallion onto a bottle of one of my favorite cleansing oils…
Anyone seeking that perfectly chic yet cheap gift for a friend or family member that adores makeup? Look no further! The Lancome Holiday Eye & Cheek Palette will do the trick and do it on a budget.
