This is a can't miss beauty gift hit this holiday season!
Clinique Whole Lotta Color Gift Set features 5 mini versions of their ultra moisturizing Chubby Sticks. The colors are fantastic and work with a wide variety of skin tones.
Shades range from a rich plum and pinky brown to a coral orange. One of my personal go to shades is 07 Super Strawberry, a very soft deep red with a touch of brown. It's perfect for an everyday natural look. Just so you know: The Chubby sticks have become famous for a reason. They feel absolutely amazing on the lips. They are very moisturizing and smooth, yet still lightweight with no stickiness. The finish is sheer but buildable to semi-sheer, and still gives just enough color that you don't need any other products for a natural daytime look.
The Chubby Sticks can also be used as liners. Try using the darker ones to line lips, and then fill in lips with the lighter shades. These are an fantastic value, and because they are really pigmented, even though they are mini size, they will last several months each. They are perfect for travel and keeping an extra chubby at the office for a quick lip change.
This set is perfect for the woman who loves to change her lip color - or if you have 5 friends, pick the shades that will suit them best and drop them in their stockings or a office holiday gift bags! - RLB
Shades include: Richer Raisin, Curvy Candy, Chunky Cherry, Super Strawberry, Oversize Orange (0.04 oz. each).

Here's the perfect beauty gift that can turn into multiple stocking stuffers for the lip product lovers out there.
POP Beauty Plump Pout is a hydrating and non-sticky lip gloss that offers the smooth feel of liquid Lipcolor, with the finish of a lip gloss.
The product also subtle plumps up lips and keeps them soft and smooth all day long.
They come in very pretty, rose and pink-toned shades that will work with a variety of skin tones.
They also work equally well on bare lips or lover lipsticks. The product is shaped slightly flat and it's only about 2.5 inches long, so they are perfect to toss in to your bag, tuck into a jacket or for travel and touch ups on the go.
For those who like a true, medium warm pink, I love the shade, Fuchsia Freesia (shown, above). For a more neutral rose-brown shade, Honey Rose (shown, left) is also very flattering. - RLB

What would happen if you placed a fragrance industry cult scent in an oak barrel - just like a rum or wine, and then actually distill it. What do you think would happen?
Thierry Mugler and his fragrance team did just that, and the result is their newest flanker, Thierry Mugler Alien Liqueur de Parfum, 2013 holiday limited edition.
The distillation process created a scent that is truly a fragrance lovers fragrance! Liqueur de Pafum has an added texture and richness with much more wood and amber (than the original), as a result. It's quite simply the perfect luxury fragrance gift for someone who "has every other fragrance out there" (and the Mugler fragrance collector of course!).
From the beautiful bottle with a mysterious shape, to and colored glass that makes it appear as if it's golden precious stone, this is a scent that won't be forgotten.
The scent starts off with a great deal of (sweet) rum and creamy oak notes, and then becomes a bit more floral with the jasmine notes as the scent develops. There are even lovely hints of almonds, cherry fruit and vanilla pastry along the way. The dry down remains on the sweeter side with the rum accord remaining, but with a very significant woody oak feel (from the distillation), that is still soft and very relaxing. For the fragrance lover that wants to smell their scent all day long, this is one that has both very good silage and staying power as well.
The result is a fragrance, which like so many Mugler scents, is complex, and beautifully blended. It's a sensual, sexy scent that many will love making their signature fragrance, particularly in the colder months. - RLB
P.S. I think this fragrance would be wonderful on both women and men...
