Holiday Gift Guide: Beauty Palettes & BUXOM & bareMinerals Giveaway

Makeup palettes are a big part of my makeup collection, mainly because they are so easy to take on-the-go and eliminate the need to carry lots of different products. Plus they usually come with some sort of a “how to” guide, so you know exactly how to apply the products included. Makeup palettes make great gifts for stocking stuffers, yankee swap gifts and more. Below are some of my faves right now. And two are being given away at the bottom of this post!

    As badly as I need new makeup I would plan to keep this for myself. However if my daughters saw it I don’t know that I would.

    I would keep it. In my defense, i gave awesome gifts to my friends/family and I rarely treat myself. Plus, this is awesome. 🙂

    I would give this to my daughter. She has a hard time finding makeup that she can use because most makeup gives her a bad allergic reaction. Bare minerals is one makeup that works for her.
