Mini-Sized Stocking Stuffers And Holiday Party Make Up Suggestions

Do you have any of those hard-to-buy-for and on-the-go travelers on your shopping list? Or teens who you need stocking stuffers for? We have a few suggestions.

The Goody Gelous Grip brush is a purse-sized ion-infused brush to fight frizz leave your hair smooth.  The Plasmium Gel Grip feels great! The Goody Styling Solutions Collection is available at Wal-Mart, Safeway, and other retail stores.

First Aid Beauty Essentials Kit is a travel-sized kit that contains airport-friendly sizes.  It comes with FAB Face Cleanser, Daily Face Cream, Gentle Body Wash, and Body Moisturizer.  They are fragrance-free, allergy tested and are safe for sensitive skin.  You can check them out here.

Do you shampoo daily?  Pssssst Instant Dry Shampoo is for refreshing your style between shampoos.  You spray it on and it absorbs excess oils, removes product build-up and boosts your volume.  It comes in two sizes so you can keep one at home and one in your bag.  Have you ever tried a product like this? You can check it out here.

We all know those holiday party invites will start coming in soon, so you want to be prepared with your “holiday look” in makeup.  Black Opal has a few great options:

Black Opal Dual-Ended Lip Gloss comes with one bold shade and one “less intense” color, but both are shiny and full of sparkle.  They are made with Sesame Oil, Aloe, and Allantoin for soothing, healing, and conditioning.  It comes in several colors: Screen Gems, Matinee Mocha, Film Noir, Star Atraction, Sugar Plum, and Cinema Sweets.

I have to admit that I’m a chicken when it comes to bold, dark colors in eye shadow, but I was impressed with how easy it was to apply and with a bit of sparkle, it’s perfect for holiday parties.  These Mineral Brilliance Eye Shadow Mosaics are hypoallergenic, oil free, talc free, and fragrance free and come in four colors: Caribbean Blue, Gold Galaxy, Zanzibar, and Rain Forest.

For anyone looking to cover up a tattoo for a holiday event for work, Dermablend Professional has a Leg and Body Tattoo Primer and Leg and Body Cover, which can help camouflage your tattoos for up to 12 hours.  The duo is  also water and smudge resistant and comes in two shades. You can check it out here.
