2016 Holiday Gift Pick - Bite Beauty The Perfect Bite Set


Under $30 Gift Pick! Bite Beauty The Perfect Bite Set 4 x 0.05 oz/ 1.47 mL


Bite Beauty is one of my faovite brands for innovative lip colors, formulas - and for holiday's gift sets.

This year, Bite Beauty The Perfect Bite should be on your very own "treat yourself list" or to give to the beauty lover in your life.



The Bite Beauty The Perfect Bite Set includes 4 Bite Amuse Bouche (mini-sized) lipsticks housed in a cute red tin carrying case that's gifting ready.

The Bite Beauty lipstick formula is spectaular.  It's creamy smooth with lots of pigment and moisture, while providing a long lasting stain on the lips.  While the lipsticks are not full sized, it's the perfect opporunity to try out shades you've never used before, or just to tuck into a small clutch or jean pocket for a day out.



The lipsticks were comfortble on my lips and never dried them out.  I apprciated the 2 nudes, a rosy pink and a cognac brown shades that work on all skin tones and for all occasions. Note: For my pigmented lips and skin tone, I found that mixing them was a great way to get ideal blends.

The finish is a natural shine and they do wear off with repeated eating/drinking, but if I didn't have time to reapply, there was always a nice color left behind that was still natural looking and flattering.  The Perfect Bite Set has a nice, fresh minty scent as well.

Like many of our gift picks, we also think this is a cost effective way to give out stocking stuffers to several friends/relatives who you know will love a particular lip shade.

The four shades included in Bite Beauty The Perfect Bite Set are Fig, Pepper, Honeycomb, Nori  - RLB

2016 Holiday Gift Pick - Deborah Lippmann Ice Queen Nail Polish Set



Under $30 Gift Pick! Deborah Lippmann Ice Queen Nail Polish Set

Here's another holiday nail set, this time from  Deborah Lippmann that's a perfect gift for a nail lover and a treat for your very own holiday party manicures.


Deborah Lippmann Ice Queen Nail Polish Set includes the shade Lady is a Tramp a beautiful deep cherry red and The Golden Rule a glittery topcoat with snow-flake inspired golden flecks.  



The Lady is a Tramp is creamy, smooth and very pigmented.  Two coats gave me the same perfect red in the bottle and they both dry in just a few minutes with a shiny finish.  I loved being able to use it on it's own, play around with a bit of The Golden Rule topcoat on the tips, over the whole nails, or just on it's own.



Both shades in the Deborah Lippmann Ice Queen Nail Polish Set also look great on toes, and if you're in a warm weather place for the holidays it's a nice touch accompanied by a pair of beautiful glittery or shiny open toed heels or sandals.

The Deborah Lippmann Ice Queen Nail Polish Set packaging with it's glamorous winter wonderland-themed outer box sleeve is gift ready and will make your beauty lover smile seeing it peek out of a stocking, under a tree or left on their desk at the office! - RLB

2016 Holiday Gift Pick - Molton Brown Vintage 2016 with Elderflower Limited Edition Bauble Gift

Under $20 Gift Pick! Molton Brown Vintage 2016 with Elderflower Limited Edition Bauble Gift







If you have a Molton Brown (or fragrance/body care) lover in your life, make sure you get them the Molton Brown Vintage 2016 with Elderflower Limited Edition Bauble Gift.



It's a beautiful product that combines a fragrant body wash in a keepsake limited edition bauble that can also be used to decorate with.  The Elderflower scent of the body wash inside is a bright citrus with a touch of floral. It's strong enough to trail on your skin after cleansing, but not so overwhelming you can't use other products with it. 


Also Try My All-Time Favorite Molton Brown Product - Molton Brown Body Wash, Black Peppercorn


I love how fresh and bright this scent is.  It's perfect for starting off my day in the morning. The body wash is thick and rich and lathers beautifully, while rinsing clean.

You can present the Limited Edition Bauble Gift in the box, or for a special surprise, hang it on your holiday tree, tie a bow through it and add to your gift packaging, or toss into a stocking for a nice treat!

And at only $15, you can easily pick up one for yourself too! (It also comes in 7 more scents with various colors), so you can mix and match for multiple family/friend gifts. - RLB
