O! WOW Brush by Cailyn Cosmetics, $32

You may have seen a brush like this before, but you might not have known that it's for applying makeup. It's possible you thought it was a toothbrush, like I did. Consider this your out-of-the-box foundation brush with densely packed, incredibly soft, synthetic bristles and a pointed tip for easy access around the nose and eyes! This is a super-cool brush that you definitely don't have. 

Malin Goetz Mojito Lip Balm.jpeg

Malin + Goetz Mojito Lip Balm, $12

I got this in a Birchbox or Glam Bag a while back and have been obsessed ever since. It's the type of lip balm you want to keep on you at all times for reapplication {and the delicious scent). You may want to buy a few for storing in different places: in your purse, at the office, on your bedside table...

Talika Bio Enzymes Mask: Hydrating, $12

By now, you might know how I feel about sheet masks: in love. I am not a mask girl, honestly. They're messy and time-consuming and obnoxious to rinse off. But sheet masks are my jam, because they're easy-peasy to apply and remove. This Talika mask will battle your winter dry skin for you in 15 minutes, hydrating your skin with hydrophilic sugars, alpine flowers, and hyaluronic acid.

Deborah Lippmann Dressed to the Nines 9-Piece Lacquer Set, $45

I adore this polish set because look at it. It's got such a great variety of colors whether you're a classic pinks & reds kinda gal or a funkier blues kind of gal. I love sets of mini polishes like this because they give you the opportunity to try a bunch of different colors without having to pay for a bunch of different colors. Bonus: Deborah Lippmann polishes are infused with Biotin and green tea for strong, healthy nails.

Tokyo Milk Dead Sexy Cosmetic Bag, $14

I've always loved Tokyo Milk's designs, but there's something I really love about the skull & crossbones over a pretty floral design! Something a little different, eh? Bags like this are always great stocking stuffers, or perfect for storing your on-the-go-makeup in your purse.

Peter Thomas Roth Must Have Holiday Kit, $38

Give me a gift set with mascara in it and I'm happy. Make it a PTR gift set and I'll love you for life! This Peter Thomas Roth set includes their Anti-Aging Cleansing Gel, Irish Moor Mud Mask, and Lashes to Die For Mascara, plus a pretty gold bag to store it in. This is one set I'm definitely putting on my wish list!

Gianna Rose Garden Boots, $28

I mean, these are just adorable. No explanation needed, right? This soap set by Gianna immediately reminded me of my mother (and I'm fairly certain, in fact, that she actually has it). They're great for your garden-loving friend or your quirky guest bath.

Malin + Goetz Essential Kit, $30

I adore Malin + Goetz, and just like the Deborah Lippmann set, I love kits like these that allow you to explore a product line at a low price. This set comes with their Grapefruit Face Cleanser, Vitamin E Moisturizer, Bergamot Body Cleanser, Vitamin B5 Body Moisturizer, Peppermint Shampoo, and Cilantro Conditioner. Yum.

beautyblender pretty.posse set, $45

If you haven't jumped on the beautyblender bandwagon, you're missing out — it's a magic sponge that uses fairy dust and unicorn sweat to perfectly blend your makeup (okay, maybe not). But believe the hype! This set comes with a full-sized beautyblender, a blingring for storing your blender, a beautyblender mini which is great for concealer and liquid highlighter, a mini blendercleanser (my fave for deep-cleaning makeup brushes), and a rea.activate for rehydrating your blender on the go.

LATHER Konjac Facial Sponge (Charcoal), $14

I'm going to have to go with the product description on this one, because there's too much amazingness about this sponge to risk you missing it. Designed for oily or combination skin types, the LATHER Konjac Facial Sponge Charcoal gently and thoroughly cleanses the face with a pillow-soft and porous texture and bamboo charcoal to purify pores and sweep away dirt, makeup, and debris. Skin is left smooth, nourished and refreshed. The sponge is made from the naturally-antibacterial konjac root that is rich in vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, B12, C, D, & E, proteins, lipids, fatty acids and natural minerals such as copper, zinc, iron, and magnesium. 100% natural, sustainable & biodegradable, the sponge leaves your skin cleaner, smoother, and more radiant-looking. Wow. Gimme that sponge!

This is a great gift for the man in your life! Jack Black is a fantastic brand of men's products (Husband is a fan). This Core Collection comes with three full sized products: Beard Lube Conditioning Shave, Pure Clean Daily Facial Cleanser, and Double Duty Face Moisturizer. Elements also carries other Jack Black sets!
