Awesome Christmas Gift Ideas + My first GIVEAWAY!!

If you are on top of your game, you are probably already thinking about Christmas gifts. If you are on the bottom of your game, you probably wish that you thought about Christmas gifts before December 24th. One day in the  faraway future, I will maybe have Christmas gifts bought and wrapped and stored away in a snug little closet somewhere. I actually bought the first Christmas gift of the season last week (George and June, you are the lucky winners. Good thing you can't read this).

In case you didn't know, my beautiful mom has her own Mary Kay business that she started after she retired from teaching. Mary Kay is a great company that sells cosmetics and skin care products. I've used their cosmetics since I was allowed to wear makeup and used the skin care products before that. Actually, when I was really little, Mom sold Mary Kay and I used to steal the samples for my own personal makeovers. So basically I've been using it forever!

I did my own makeup for my wedding using Mary Kay products. (Ok, I had a little help from the bff.) But it turned out beautiful!

My mom has been using Mary Kay since she was in her twenties and has amazing skin.

My Grandma Frank has been using Mary Kay products for 35 years.
We've been exchanging Mary Kay products as gifts for Christmas for years now. It's perfect because the products are luxurious and useful at the same time. There is something for every price range- you might be surprised at everything you can get!

A few great gift ideas:

1. Mascara (starting at $10)
2. A Lash Love mascara, Oil Free Eye Remover, and eye lash curler set ($30)
3. An eye shadow ($6.50) or eye shadow with applicator ($9)
4. A lip color (either a lipstick, liquid lip color, or lip gloss) ($13)
5. Lip color + lip liner pencil ($23)
6. Hand cream ($10) or Satin Hands Luxury Set ($34)
7. Satin Lips Set ($18)
8. Mint Bliss Energizing Foot Lotion for feet and legs ($10)
9. A fragrance (starting at $25)
10. Professional makeup brush collection ($45)

There are even great products for teens and tweens!

    Great blog! Thanks for sharing it! My favorite Mary Kay product is definately the Cream Eye Color, most definately the beach blond. I used to use the eyesicles and was upset when they no longer made this product. Your mom, Kaye convinced me to try the cream eye color and it is now my favorite! I also love the Pink Diamonds lip gloss!

  4. For the win, I've posted this on twitter with your handle. BAM. Love you.

  5. These are all interested gift ideas i like all ideas, thanks for sharing.
