Great Last Minute Holiday Ideas

Still out there searching for some perfect last minute gifts for the wonderful ladies in your life, or just wanting to splurge on yourself? Check out these products below. Justina and I exchanged Christmas gifts and these are all the wonderful gifts I received. Thanks Justina!!!!


Michael Rourke Rock Your Hair Bombshell Big Hair Powder
Just sprinkle this powder onto hair and rub in for some extra volume and oil absorbing. LOVE this stuff!



Justina knows that I love the Suave dry shampoo!!! I know this isn't her fave, but for the price, I don't think it can be beat!


Rimmel London mascaras hooray! Including Scandal Eyes & Rimmel Grow Lash. I've watched reviews where there has been noticeable growth on lashes with this product.


Look at the wand on the Scandal Eyes! Amazing. We LOVE this stuff!!!


Awesome broach for my coat or to use as a pin in my hair from Maurices


Super fun nail polish color from The Balm


Quick swatch: sorry for the messiness! The Balm is one of our FAVE brands for their skincare line and highly pigmented eyeshadows and yummy smelling lip glosses, I'm very excited to give their polish a try!



What a beautiful frame with a picture of us from her wedding! How sweet is she!


Justina knows I've been eyeing these forever and she got me one in Coffee Cake and one in Glistening Sun. I do have one in Peach Satin and have been scoping out deals on others.


How beautiful are these colors!


These are SO creamy, its unbelievable. These blend well into your skin leaving a nice glow without overdoing the color.


Set of 8 nail polishes by Goldie 


These are Toluene, Formaldehyde & DBP Free and Vegan Friendly. I painted my nails this past summer with various polishes in crazy colors, changing colors almost daily and that took its toll on my nails. After trying ZOYA which we got in our birchbox, I am all about using polishes without harsh chemicals. Hurry up nails and get healthy again! 


These state they are quick drying and they aren't kidding around with that one. I have a serious problem with messing up nail polish colors because I'm not patient enough. These are probably the quickest drying polishes I've EVER used! And trust me I've tried a lot that claim to dry quickly. I actually applied 1 coat of a pink color then the top coat, then decided I needed another coat of the pink because there were some sparse spots, applied another top coat, and didn't mess up my nails even though I went back to business as usual pretty much immediately. I LOVE these and the colors are amazing. 

This color dries with more of a sheen to it than it even appears in the bottle and I'm loving it! Its almost metallic looking. Some of the shades definitely appear more matte but I'm really enjoying this metallic finish.


How perfect is this color?


Sorry very messy swatch of another color, doesn't do it justice, but wanted to get a few swatches done before I re-did my nails!


I'm all about messy swatches!

Thanks Justina for all these amazing gifts! I love you! 

Stay tuned for my post with some of the great deals and steals we have found lately during this holiday season! 

Thanks for reading! 

Yours in Beauty, 
Jessica
