For the beauty gal in your life, here are some special promotions which will make you a gifting superstar.



Our fave mascara (and we’ve tried all of them) and skin tint are packaged together for a perfect gift. $57.50 for both at Hi Beautiful You.


For the holidays, YENSA has a ton of beauty specials, including the fabulous lip bundle for $60. Three flattering shades for anyone on Santa’s list. There’s also a bunch o’ suggestions under $30.



Susan Ciminelli Skincare.

We always get compliments on our skin — ‘you look so radiant!’ — and along with genetics, we credit the Susan Ciminelli skincare line. This season, surprise your girlfriends with the very affordable 123 GLOW DIY Facial Kit for $29.99. Bonus: the packaging is so pretty that all you need to do is slap a bow on it.

Anna Marti Cosmetics.

Anna Marti Cosmetics wasn’t on our radar until a publicist sent us their Rich Pigment Lip liner Roséallday which we instantly fell in love with. It glides on easily so we didn’t stop at lining our lips but put it all over so it acted as lipstick. Color us surprised when it lasted and lasted. Bonus: we slightly re-sized our lips so they appeared bigger.

In fact, we liked it so much we jumped online and ordered a few for our girlfriends. ($14.99.)

Pairs with the Posh Pink lipstick a flattering mauve-ish color that we’re saving for parties (when it’s safe to go to one.) $16.99.


Why is a pillowcase in the Beauty section you ask? Because it’s one of the best ways to improve your skin — and your hair. BLISSY makes theirs from the highest quality Mulberry 22-Momme silk. Recommended by dermatologists and hairstylists everywhere. (And yes, one of O’s favorite things.) Right now you can get 35% off.

Here’s our full review for more info.



Do have a friend who’s ALL about their hair? Give them the gift of a ‘good hair day’ with SH-RD hair conditioner. We’ve tried ALL kinds of conditioners that made all sorts of promises but this Twainese brand really delivers.

With something called  ‘formulated Silk Protein Complex ‘ it smooths and seals the cuticle which locks in the hydration. After a day in the ocean –and then the pool –it is the only product that revitalizes our hair.



The leave-in protein hair mask is pricey at 50 bucks but it lasts a l-o-n-g time.



For the girl who loves glitter and sparkle, gift them this ‘Dripping Jewels’ collection from SeneGence. Includes a LipSense long-lasting color and two beautiful colored glosses to compliment the color. It also includes a free Oops Remover in a glittering Ruby pink cosmetic case. When the bag is this pretty, you don’t even need to wrap it!
