Holiday Beauty Swag: Winter 2011


The title of this post says it all, y’all! I’m acutely aware that it’s not even December yet but, it’s never too early to start shopping for the holidays (got to love good old fashioned consumerism). I thought I’d make shopping a little bit easier this season by rounding up some of the best holiday beauty products available right now.


First off, as pictured above is a new collaboration from Lip Smacker and the Girl Scout’s of America (inspired by their cookies). Now you can treat yourself or someone else to Girl Scout cookies year round, without gaining any weight (I’m a Thin Mint devotee myself). This holiday gift set is available for $5 at Walmart and Claire’s.

Next up is the holiday nail polish set brought to you by nail guru Deborah Lippmann and the ladies at Juicy Couture. The polish trio shown features ‘Precious Metals’ in ‘Here Comes the Queen’ a sheer glaze is infused with gold glitter, ‘Jewel in the Crown’  a metallic pewter, and ‘Believe’ a glimmering gold beige co-created with Cher. What more could you ask for? Get your set today for $48 at Nordstrom.

Fragrance junkies should already be familiar with Demeter, a brand known for thinking outside the box when it comes to traditional expectations for scents. This season is no exception. They’re offering up perfumes in classic holiday scents like Eggnog, Christmas Tree, and Mulled Cider . . . mmm! These fragrances can be purchased on their website for $10 a bottle.

Nail aficionados know how great the O.P.I brand is and this season they’ve branched out and  have released a line of super-rich hand lotions. You can find these lotions on their website for $11 a bottle.

Philosophy is another brand that caters to special events and holidays. This season they’ve released several products like gingerbread scented body wash and lotion. This would make a great stocking stuffer or gift for a co-worker. Philosophy products are available at Sephora.

Finally, the piece de resistance for any beauty mavens reading. A company called BirchBox offers a unique service that ships individualized goody bags filled with deluxe beauty samples to people for $10 a month, a service that can be stopped at any time. Find out more about the service at birchbox.com. It’s the perfect gift for beauty lovers of any age. As Donna from NBC’s ‘Parks and Recreation’ would say “TREAT YO SELF!” At any rate I hope this list has helped. Happy holidays!
