All I want for Christmas is - A Bevy of Beauty Treats! Let the Pampering Begin!

“All I want for Christmas is….” well, not ALL I want, but definitely right up there at the top of my list are the gorgeous beauty holiday products, all delightfully packaged and ready for spoiling someone, or me, as it were.  I so look forward to hitting up all my favorite beauty stores, both in person and online to see all the special releases of my favorite products, exclusive limited editions, and bijoux-sized treats that give me the opportunity to indulge.  And there are so many to chose from this year that I have narrowed down my favorites just in case Santa needs a hint, or if you, readers, need some beauty suggestions of your own.

The holidays are the perfect time to try out a new lipstick in a daring color or finish and I love the new Pat McGrath Labs Mini Matte Trance Lip Trio, and Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Mattemoiselle 10/10, both with a versatile range of shades for maximum glam for the new year.  Charlotte Tilbury’s The Golden Goddess Set has everything you could dream of from eyes to lips to face in the metallic shades that will work literally every single day all winter long, giving me a “just back from vacation somewhere warm and sunny” glow.  Speaking of vacation, I am lusting after Tom Ford’s Soleil Blanc Shimmer and Travel Set which is the ultimate in get-away glam and definitely coming with me if I am lucky enough to see a beach this winter.  Nars Hot Tryst Cheek Palette gives a hot-blooded flush and has every shade you could desire to warm up your winter complexion. 

Skin and body care treats take the cold sting out of winter, and bath and body products scented with coconut and rose are the perfect antidote to dry winter skin.  I love the luxurious Herbivore Botanical’s Self Love Bath and Body Ritual Kit for it’s rejuvenation properties, not to mention its delicious scents and formulas.  BeautyBio’s Bright Eyes Set is an amazing eye patch treatment that puts the life back into the delicate under-eye skin and the soft “Offline” eye mask reminds us to step away from our electronic devices and relax.  Dry winter skin is no match for La Mer’s Celestial Transformations The Radiant Collection, which has every product you need to restore your glow with the proper skincare products, not just faking it with makeup.  And don’t forget fragrance: the holiday season is the best time of the year to try new scents,  I love the smaller versions of perfume and eau de toilette without committing to a full-size bottle, and it gives me a “fragrance wardrobe” to brighten winter days.  I love scents that remind me of summer and sunshine, like Maison Margiela’s Replica Travel Spray Sets, and Hermes’ Garden Collection Coffret Set

Let the pampering begin! All of these beauty indulgences have put me in the holiday mood and gifting is going to be extra glam this year. Santa, are you listening? I’ve been SO GOOD this year!
