My Holiday Beauty Wish List: TBF’s Resident Beauty Expert Shares Her Most Wanted

Normally, we chat about beauty on a budget. But hey, it’s the holidays, and a girl can dream, right?  That’s why I put together the following beauty wish list. Granted, it’s not ultra extravagant (that’s just not my style). However, it is filled with a few things that I normally wouldn’t buy for myself.

A Beauty Expert’s Holiday Beauty Wish List

Pur Minerals Start Now! 4-Piece Essentials Collection

Pur Minerals Start Now! 4-Piece Essentials Collection

I’ve wanted to try mineral makeup for a while now to see what the fuss is all about.  I also know it’s a little bit of an investment to get started because there are multiple products that create the whole look.  Honestly, I just want that flawless skin from the commercials!  This is a great introduction into the world of mineral makeup because it comes in eight skin tone shades and includes the special application brush.  The kit comes with a combination foundation/powder/concealer that also has SPF in it, a bronzing powder and a moisturizing blush/highlighter. At $37, I could easily convince myself not to buy it, but for the holidays I just might.

Philosophy Think Beautiful Thoughts Skincare Set

Philosophy Think Beautiful Thoughts Skincare Set

Philosophy makes great products, but they aren’t known for super low price tags.  This cute set is like an all-in-one facial with some of Philosophy’s best sellers.  The size is great for trying out each product before committing to the full size versions.  It includes a cleanser, a skin brightening peel, ‘Hope in a Jar’ moisturizer, a skin firming serum, and eye cream to reduce puffiness and dark circles.
