Gift Guide 2014: For the Beauty Obsessed

gift guide, this holiday, gifts under 75, gifts for the beauty lover, beauty gifts, beauty wish listA couple of weeks ago, I shared my beauty wish list and today I have several more beauty-related gift ideas. Many of these are also on my list (you know the nail polish addict in me is heart-eyed over that Formula X set) or items that I think would make good gifts for people in my life. I also love the idea of the Sephora Favorites sets that were released for the holidays because you get to sample a bunch of great brands at a fraction of the price.

Speaking of shopping, who’s gearing up for Black Friday? I don’t plan to go to any stores (it’s way too crazy out there for me), but I will be browsing the deals online and possibly sharing some of favorite deals on twitter. I’m hoping that I can order a few things and knock a couple of gifts of my Christmas shopping list.

To those who celebrate, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and good luck to all the Black Friday shoppers. I’ll see you guys back here next week!

      I stopped by Sephora to look at the Bite lip ornaments and they’re so cute! They didn’t have the shade I wanted though, so guess I have to go back :)
