ULTA Holiday Gift Guide


Ok, so I might have gone a little overboard in my search for the best holiday gift items from ULTA. There are just so many choices! If you haven’t been to the makeup mecca that is ULTA, you need to get there stat. I had an absolute blast on my shopping spree at the awesome shop selecting my top ULTA picks to share wiith you guys for the holidays! After playing and wearing and trying everything I received, I have declared the best of the best. Here are my absolute favs:

Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette


Oh my goodness, do I love this palette. The shades are absolutely amazing, highly pigmented, and super easy to blend. Urban Decay’s limited edition, back-by-popular-demand eye palette includes 20 exclusive shades of velvety, anything-but-neutral shadows. Perfect for giving – or keeping – this holiday!

Clarisonic Mia 2

Why did I not have a Clarisonic before now? It is seriously like receiving a spa treatment every night. I just started using it days ago and can see a serious improvement in the tone and texture of my skin! Sonic technology gently yet deeply cleans pores without harsh chemicals and removes six times more makeup than manual cleansing. This new, more wonderful version comes with two speeds and Clarisonic’s patented T-Timer for personalized skin care.


Marc Jacobs’ Honey Fragrance


The bright, floral notes of Marc Jacobs’ Honey Eau de Parfum make for a perfect complement to a joyful holiday spirit. Add a little sweetness to someone’s holiday with this 2013 Allure Best of Beauty Award winner. We all know how much I agree with Allure’s taste in beauty! 😉


Philosophy Season of Sparkle Set

Everyone could use a little extra sparkle during the holidays. Philosophy’s Season of Sparkle set is the perfect trio to do the trick. These cute sets of shampoo, shower gel, and bubble bath come in White Pear, White Cherry, and White Cranberry scents and will leave hair and skin feeling soft and smooth.

Lipstick Queen Hall of Fame Set


This set of lippies includes a star-studded line up of best-sellers, featuring three universally flattering shades. Medieval is a beautiful deep red. It’s pure pigment suspended in antioxidant Vitamin E. Jean Queen is a subtle pink, enriched with Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and Shea Butter. And Butterfly Ball in Float’s soft wash of sheer nude is the ultimate in hydrating lip color drenched in Aloe Vera and Vitamins E, C and B. All are super moisturizing and a perfect for a basic lip wardrobe!

Like my list? ULTA has created a pretty epic roundup of gift worthy products that you should take a peek at too! It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas. 🙂
