Little Luxuries

This post really holds up to the small things come in good packages philosophy.
But I wanted to focus on the little makeup luxuries that every makeup lover wants for Christmas but might feel a little guilty buying for them selves.

Chanel Nail Polish
I love Chanel nail polishes and getting one of these perfect colors in the cute little box just gets me really happy. I find that most colors have excellent pigment and wear time. At $27 dollars a bottle I limit my obsession with these so when I get them as a gift it’s always a special treat. 
These little babies are also great small enough to ship. While living away from home I sent some of my friends these for Christmas or birthdays.

Chanel Lip Gloss
Chanel produces some of the most beautiful lip-glosses ever. While I think the quality and overall original colors of these are like no other I happen to feel a little guilty when shelling out over 30 dollars for these. On the other hand the color selection and the variety of finishes make them perfect for gifting because there’s literally something for everyone.

Dior Creme de Rose
I’m sure everyone has heard about this at this point. Where do I even begin?
The packaging has that glamorous vintage, may have been left on Marilyn Monroe’s vanity feel and the product itself is a great formula. It’s one of those rare lip balms that you can put on at night but still feel on your lips the next day. Personally, I love the scent of roses but if who you’re buying for doesn’t steer away!
Sooo nice thou… which reminds me I am almost our of this so it’s on the top of my Christmas wish list.

Guerlain Rouge Automatique Shine
These are literally the perfect every day lipstick and for three very good reasons
-All shades the shades are sheer enough to be wearable but opaque enough to all look different
- The formula is like a balm so its very wearable and sparkly and not gritty.
- The golden packaging and the cool push up mechanism is enough to stop anyone out of there tracks. Including Jay (fiancĂ©) who had to inspect this to see exactly how it worked … and my dad … and the guys I work with.
But at $40 dollars a tube … they are the ultimate luxury and the perfect little Christmas gift.

Well those are my four little luxurious, perfect for any makeup lover over the holiday season.
Feel free to leave a comment below I would love to know what are some of your favorite little luxuries.
Thanks all for reading,
