Still looking for something for the beauty addict in your life, but you’re totally clueless? Take it from me, a hardcore, admitted Beauty Addict – these are some MUST HAVES for the season. I love all of these products!
This is a simple and gorgeous palette of lots of lovely dark, muted jewel tones, that are perfect for this time of year. A lot of the reviews are negative just based on the color selection, complaining about not enough “light colors” like in Urban Decay’s Naked series. I love all the Naked Palettes, but this is great for a pop of color when you need some. Most shades are matte, with a few having some very simple sheen or glitter to them. “Selfie” is one of my favorite colors for just a simple day look. Paired with “Flash” and “Focus” you’ve got an easy smokey neutra eye. Add some “Star” along the bottom lash line for a pop of color! Use code GIFTED to save 50% for a limited time! $38 on Julep.com
This is such a FANTASTIC peel, I cannot say enough good things about it. I love how easy it is to apply and the concept of how it works. First, you apply a thin layer of the peel to your face, like you would a mask. Let it sit for a few minutes and then wash it off in circular motions, exfoliating off all that dead skin. The formula helps prep your skin, making the dead stuff come off much easier than traditional scrubs. Plus it smells DIVINE! $36 on myitworks.com

Z Palette $15-28
I use Z Palette exclusively for all my pan shadows – they are fantastic and make carrying around all my MAC, Makeup Geek and Morphe shadow pans super easily.
