1. Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Creme Lipstick ($30) - I'm literally obsessed with these lipsticks right now. They have a beautiful texture that is smooth and creamy. Each shade delivers gorgeous pigment and the brand just recently launched four new shades -  Fawn, Peace, Mural, and Vintage. The best part about them? They're refillable! 

2. Anastasia Want You To Want Me Eye Shadow Palette ($34) - This deluxe eye shadow palette features and array of nude and plum shades. It also includes liquid eye liner and a mini brow gel. You can easily toss in your bag for touch-ups or take with you on a weekend trip. Did I also mention how stunning the packaging is? The rose gold logo is perfection.

3. LORAC Eye Candy Full Face Collection ($59) - You guys already know I feel about LORAC cosmetics. It will and forever be one of my favorite makeup brands. They never disappoint on new collections. This holiday they got even sweeter with a box of chocolates that offers tempting makeup treats. Encased in a lavish gold box are six faux "chocolate bar" palettes to help you create the perfect face.

4. Laura Mercier Artist's Palette For Eyes ($48) - A palette of a dozen eye shadow colors in shimmer and matte finishes. I love this gift choice, because it offers an array of color combos to create an eye catching look.

5. Bite Beauty Bite Size Discovery Set ($25) - There is nothing more adorable than mini lipsticks and this set comes with 5 (gimme gimme gimme). This chic compact contains 5 bite-sized lipsticks that deliver super nourishing antioxidants and look really good on too. 

6. MAKE UP FOR EVER All Eyes On You Set ($59) - I've been waiting for MUFE to come out with a set with multiple products and VIOLA - my prays have been answered. This kit comes with their top selling products including my favorite smokey lash mascara. Hello lashes!

9. Tom Ford Lipstick ($48) - I know what you're thinking - $48?! For a lipstick?! They must be crazy. STOP. It's Tom Ford and it's gorgeous. I, too, was like you, but this Christmas I am caving and will be purchasing one of these bad boys (maybe two..) Imagine whipping this sexy lippy out of your purse? Oh, yes. It's that good.
