Little Luxuries for the Lovelies in Your Life

Sometimes the prettiest things come in small packages. These fancies are perfect for stuffing the stockings of all the well-deserving girls in your life, and they won’t break the bank! 1. Kate Spade Color Sparkle Lipstick Crayons ($38) – I don’t know if it’s the poppy striped box or the party-perfect hues, but I want these bad!  2. Bobbi Brown Shimmer Nail Polish in Black Pearl ($18) – Move over vampy manis, Bobbi’s limited-edition lacquer is the epitome of tough luxe.  3. Eve Lom Kiss Mix ($22) – The minty, glossy balm from British import Eve Lom currently holds court on my nightstand.  4. Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir Bath Soap ($15) – There is absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to bathe in Jo Malone on a daily basis, especially when it’s this lush, peppery signature scent.  5. Kiehl’s Original Musk Shower Gel ($16) – Unisex and utterly classic, this cleanser lathers up nicely and leaves just enough of its soft, spicy scent behind.  6. MOR Essentials Scented Candle ($18) – My latest candle discovery. Gorgeous, giftable tins filled with 35 hours of clean burning soy wax in beautifully exotic fragrances. Hello hostess gifts!  7. Jouer Mini Luminizing Moisture Tint ($20) – A travel-friendly way to sample Jouer’s best-selling, lightweight yet dewifying tinted moisturizer.  8. Marvis Toothpaste ($10.50) – There’s something about this minty, Italian apothecary paste that makes brushing one’s teeth a supremely chic ritual. Leave out a tube for your house guests!

    ABOUT BETS
    Born and raised in Minnesota by surprisingly low-maintenance parents, beauty writer and lifestyle editor Elizabeth Dehn (aka Bets) spent her awkward years buying Mood lipstick and whipping up DIY face masks before founding Beauty Bets in 2009 as a way to share candid product reviews and real beauty advice for smart women everywhere. When she’s not test-driving the latest beauty treatment (bee venom facial, anyone?) or serving as the beauty editor for Mpls. St. Paul Magazine and ClementineDaily.com, Elizabeth can be spotted running the Minneapolis Lakes with her white lab, Molly Thomas, or sipping champagne on a killer patio. Pass the sunscreen.
