Mother’s Day is right around the corner. On this day, we celebrate the woman who gave us life and provided us love and care all the while judiciously managing everything in the day- to- day affairs of being a mother–caretaker, confidant, cheerleader, cook, the list goes on. Today I wanted to share a beauty related gift guide for every budget and gifts that are worthy to bestow to the woman we call Mom.

Tis the season for Holiday Lips! Today I’m compiling a list of some luxury beauty holiday lipsticks I recently picked up.  I was really impressed this year with the limited edition releases and the limited edition packaging that came along with these releases as well. I’m a huge sucker for packaging. It gets me almost everytime! Today I will be sharing swatches of these beauties for your reference. There’s some red, some nude shades, and even a deeper and bold holiday hue that you can find in Marc Jacobs Beauty’s Bad Behavior. Scroll below for details and swatches.

This year’s MAC Nutcracker Sweet Holiday collection is brimming with the most adorable packaging with festive designs in gold, fuchsia, and burgundy. This range is quite enticing. The presentation for every single piece is so beautiful and truly covetable. I visited the MAC store to take a look at the offerings available for pre order and immediately fell in love with the MAC Nutcracker Sweet Nude Lipstick Kit, which I will be featuring in today’s post. I am also currently conducting a giveaway for this kit as well on my Instagram to gift to one lucky winner. (See my Instagram post for details)

There are a total of eighteen shades available in four color families: Corals, Reds, Pinks and Plums. I am excited to share with you six colors from the range today.

The new NARS 2016 holiday collection is now available online and in store. The collection is a collaboration with famed French fashion photographer Sarah Moon. I always look forward to the limited edition holiday sets from NARS, because of the great value and price point. I absolutely loved the Nars x Steven Klein Collection from last year’s release, reviewed here and here. One thing that immediately piqued my interest this year is the NARS Sarah Moon Mind Game Velvet Lip Set which is exclusive to Sephora. I purchased it as soon as it arrived at my local Sephora and I’ll tell you now that I absolutely love it.
