Target gave us a sneak preview of what they have in store for the holidays in the area of beauty. Get ready for a wide array of items that are sure to make terrific gifts. Here are 5 of my favorite items for gift-giving from Target Beauty for the Holidays.
1) e.l.f. 83 Piece Essential Palette
I love this 83 Piece Essential Palette! e.l.f. is a line of simple, luxurious, problem-solution cosmetics. They specialize in products that cover many categories. I’m kind of hoping someone who plans to get me a present reads this and gets me one of these sets. e.l.f. also has Nail Cubes and a wide range of lip glosses. I chose the 83 Piece Essential Palette because it contains 64 shadows, 8 lip glosses, 4 blushes and comes with a set of 3 brushes. You’re not going to believe the price. At only $20, you can get one for each of your nieces and their friends.
2) Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Look Kit
I mean, how fun are these nails?! You know Sally Hansen. It’s the go-to brand for all things to do with nails. This kit costs only $10 and contains 3 sets of 16 nail strips. They’re super easy to apply and look so trendy and fun. They’re the perfect accent to any holiday look. I’m assuming you’re getting one for yourself. How can you not? Oh, and this would make a perfect gift for girls and women of any age.
3) Justin Bieber Girlfriend Gift Set
There are at least 2 or 3 little girls in all our lives that are obsessed with Justin Bieber, as much as we try to steer them towards Walt Whitman. Receiving anything Justin Bieber will not just make her Christmas, it’ll make her year. This gift set contains a body lotion and full and travel-sized fragrances. The scents are flavored with notes of blackberry, pink freesia and warm vanilla orchid. It’s also perfectly priced at $29.99.
4) Burt’s Bees Lip Balm
I am a little bit more than obsessed with Burt’s Bees. They’re earth-friendly and are made from natural ingredients including beeswax, botanical and essential oils, herbs, flowers and minerals. Burt’s Bees products are made with the environment in mind. I LOVE that. How cute is this little case that the lip balms come in? It’s so perfect for that guy or girl who is environmentally conscious.
5) Pixie Alchemy Assortment
I am such a sucker for big eye shadow palettes, it’s embarrassing! I just love looking at all these colors. You can literally do any smokey eye with this palette. There are 36 eye shades and an applicator. You can use this for daytime or nighttime looks. It’s that versatile. Pixie is the brainchild of Petra Strand, renowned makeup artist.
