There are many products I adamantly rave about and always use. Since the holidays are approaching, I thought I’d share some that would make great stocking stuffers — men, I’m speaking to you — especially if you grab your gifts at the last minute.
Many might view MAC Cosmetics as wild or for the younger set, but it’s a makeup artists’ makeup. Their eye pigments are gorgeous and very long lasting. I think having an eyelid primer is imperative and I’ve tried many. While it’s not technically a primer, I’ve found nothing as superior as Painterly Longwearing Paint Pot. It keeps color on all day, doesn’t crease, and supplies the perfect canvas for color. I’ve also worn it alone when I don’t really want to wear a lot of makeup for a smooth finish on my lids. Men, throw in several eye shadows, even better a full eye-shadow palette, and points will go through the roof.
Jo Malone perfume — you will never go wrong. Her line is full of a variety of fantastic smelling potions. To create a scent made to just your liking, several can be paired together for a delicious perfume cocktail. There are also candles to match the perfume assortment that could also make a great gift.
All of Kate Sommerville’s products are great, but I love her exclusive Dilo Oil. As we get older, it is essential to hydrate; Dilo Oil replenishes and restores elasticity and smells fabulous.
Ladies, men enjoy fun stocking stuffers, too. My fiancé doesn’t use many products, but he’s never without chapstick of some kind. Jack Black is a wonderful line for men. He was recently given the Intense Therapy Lip Balm with Natural Mint & Shea Butter and he’s hooked. If you give it, the recipient will be hooked, on you. Happy holidays!
