With the holidays approaching, gift giving is on everyone’s mind. Beauty Info Zone turns to Mont Bleu as a great online resource for beautiful gifts, including glass nail files decorated with beautiful crystals, Swarovski decorated hair brushes, beautiful bracelets, necklaces, and hair pins, and so much more. Every piece comes with a certificate of authenticity. We have been impressed with the fantastic quality of Mont Bleu items for years now, as well as their incredibly fast shipping.
Today we have two amazing gift options to show you, and you can win one of them to gift to someone…although we recommend keeping it for yourself!
I can’t even begin to describe how beautiful this crystal artwork is. While the crystal artwork takes some time to arrive – it’s made especially for you once you order it – the wait is absolutely worth it. I picked the ‘Angel’, but there are lots of other choices available. You can choose from fairies, mermaids, angels, ballerinas – there are 33 different silhouette designs so there is something for everyone.
The genuine Swarovski Elements crystals are gorgeous. They shimmer and shine, and are especially dramatic against the jet black background. They arrive in a black presentation box and can be displayed in it or hung on a wall. A specially trained artist makes your artwork when you order, so every piece is unique and individual. The end result is sleek and stunning. This is an amazing gift for the holidays or a wonderful piece for your home. I have a meditation room and my gorgeous angel is right at home, bringing me some bling and some bliss.
- Size of the picture in frame: 31x22x2 cm or 12.2×8.66×0.79 inches
- Size of the box: 36x27x4 cm or 14.17×10.63×1.58 inches
The crystal art pictures are spendy – they run anywhere from about $280 to $850 – but they truly are showstoppers that make a huge impact. Fantastic!!
I’m in love with the Compact Mirrors from Mont Bleu. It’s a thrill to open your cosmetic bag or evening bag and bring out one of these gorgeous compacts. You’ll certainly gather some interest from people around you. Compact mirrors decorated with Swarovski crystals are assembled in a unique design by hand and are perfect as a gift for her; they are presented in royal black leatherette gift box.
There are many different designs with the compact mirrors but all have the same wonderful craftsmanship. The compacts come with mirrors on both sides, a standard mirror and a magnifying side. They are 70mm in diameter so they are just the right size to check on your lips and eyes plus fit nicely in your bag. I often have trouble opening palettes but the compacts by Mont Bleu that are made with SWAROVSKI® ELEMENTS have an easy to open button.
Here’s the compact I had sent to me and what you can win in this giveaway provided by Mont Bleu.
I’m so happy with this colorful yet lightweight compact that I find excuses to touch up my makeup when I’m out. Mirrors like these are very affordable and make wonderful gifts for all occasions. You can see the beautiful designs on Mont Bleu’s website. This particular mirror would be 12 euros/$12.92 US. Prices range from $12.92 US to $38.69 US for most of these mirrors while the fabulous glass nail files range from $5.40 to $10.77. There’s something for everyone on your list!

I am all about purses, but not really the latest…although I definitely appreciate a Chanel or a Prada when I see one! My style is more boho or vintage, and when I find a gorgeous vintage purse I just about turn inside out. I love my stunning vintage purse that was actually a gift to me from my most beloved friend, who obviously understands my preferences because it is perfect for me.
Now, I am a realist and I know I am a major procrastinator (just ask my poor, ever-patient blogging partner Marcia), so I just keep this purse filled with the perfect products at all times. That way, when I am running late for a fancy evening or event – and I am ALWAYS running late – I can just grab this and go, knowing that I have everything I need.
My favorite dressy purse contains a few beautiful and essential items that I was sent last year from Mont Bleu, an online site that features Swarovski jewelry and crystal nail files. This particular makeup mirror is still available – you can find it right HERE.
I always have a nail file with me and I love this crystal file from Mont Bleu.
My Senna Blush & Bronze Duo in Beached Peach is always perfect for touch ups…have you ever noticed that nothing perks up your look quicker than a bit of blush?? I also love my little Crown Brush C109 Mini Bronzer Brush. Exactly what is needed for a purse.
Luck favors the prepared with the Minimergency Kit. It’s from the ‘Good Luck Series’ and the little four-leaf clover never fails to make me feel lucky. This little kit holds 16 different items that are truly essentials and it’s only 3.5″ x 2″ x 2″ so it fits into the palm of your hand. I am astounded at what fits into this mini life saver: hairspray; dental floss, band aids, and Blistex; Advil; a mini sewing kit that also includes a set of earring backs and clear elastics; and double-sided tape, breath mint drops; an emery board; a tampon; and clear nail polish. Just think of how many times you wished you had one of those items and couldn’t find one anywhere. Also included are three foil packs: nail polish remover, stain remover, and a deodorant towelette.
I use a wonderful little box that came with some Nudestix items to house my lippies. I always have a lip balm and this one is Savannah Bee Beautiful Sugar Lip Balm. My lipstick is the gorgeous Julie Hewett Oona Noir, and I love it with my Alison Raffaele Lip Gloss in Luscious, a shimmery gold, over top. I also carry my Face Stockholm Lip Brush that is the perfect size.
The last items I throw into my purse before heading out the door include my phone, a Samsung Galaxy. I know people love their iPhones, but I am an Android girl all the way.
Finally, oh how I adore my retro GARRETT LEIGHT Wilson Mirrored sunglasses that I bought from ShopBop. They have mirrored, gradient lenses and actually came with a hard case and cleaning cloth too. They are the most expensive sunglasses I have ever owned, but worth every single penny. They are still available on ShopBop in blue and in purple.
That’s all that is in my purse! Thanks for reading, and be sure to check out the inspiring ‘What’s in my purse’ post from the other amazing ladies on the Beauty Spotlight Team. – Lisa

Looking for a great graduation gift? Look no further!
There are many stunning options from one of our favorite online retails stores, Mont Bleu. They have beautiful nail files, Swarovski-encrusted brushes, and jewelry, plus a whole lot more. They ship unbelievably quick, plus they have great prices and their pieces come with certificates of authenticity.
Mont Bleu sent some fantastic gift options for the girl graduate. Take a look.
The Red Crystal Stud Earrings ($10.38) are gorgeous – and would you look at that price? These earrings are so bright and shiny they really stand out. They have a covering of hypoallergenic metal rhodium so they won’t cause an allergic reaction, and the red studs are genuine Swarovski crystals.
The Shamballa Bracelet with Siam Red Beads ($35.04) is a fabulous option that is right on trend. I work at a high school, and the girls just go bananas for these bracelets. The Siam Red crystal beads are embedded in a waxed cord that is woven in a macramé design. The bracelet adjusts so it will fit any size wrist and it comes in a beautiful leatherette box with a certificate of authenticity.
While their inventory changes often and I don’t see this ring on their website right now, I want to tell you about the Ring with Pink Swarovski Crystals. The ring is made with brass that is covered with rhodium, so again there is no worry about allergic reactions. Not only is the ring stunning, it’s also super practical because it adjusts to any finger. No worries about getting the wrong size!
Here is a comparable ring, the Two Crystals Swarovski Ring, it has rounded stones and this one is only $11.68! Plus it comes in a variety of colors.
Mont Bleu has so many other gifts that are perfect for the graduate it is incredible. I urge you to check out their website for your graduation gift shopping. After all those years of schooling, your graduate deserves something really special! – Lisa

One of my favorite etailer sites for beauty items with that ‘bling factor’ is Mont Bleu. They sent some amazing options that are deliciously perfect for Valentine’s Day. These red-themed items are all adorned with Swarovski crystals and each comes with a certificate of authenticity. Even better, right now Mont Bleu is having a sale but hurry up – it ends February 16th. Until then, just enter the code VALENTINE for 25% off.
This Glass Nail File (WC-M10, $12.98) is hand decorated with Swarovski Elements in a waterfall pattern. Glass nail files are awesome because they are easy on the nails, hygienic, and they never wear out. This beautiful file will last forever – in fact it comes with a lifetime guarantee.
The Breeze Hair Brush ($50.61) is absolutely stunning. It’s a wooden boar bristle brush that is studded with Swarovski crystals. The red and white combination couldn’t be better for Valentine’s Day (it also comes in blue, which I think is equally gorgeous). The brush is extremely gentle and it’s perfect for winter because it won’t cause the dreaded static hair.
The Corals V Compact Mirror ($128.48) is certainly spendy, but it is fabulous. I really can’t adequately describe how flipping gorgeous this mirrored compact is – the pictures don’t even begin to do it justice. The Swarovski crystals are applied by hand, and it comes in a beautiful black leatherette gift box. The compact is made of metal and it has just enough heft to feel substantial without being unwieldy. It opens easily to reveal two mirrors, a standard one and magnifying one. This will make you swoon!
You need to take a few moments to peruse the Mont Bleu website. They ship super fast and the beautiful selections seem endless. Find what you want for Valentine’s Day and tell your significant other…or buy it for yourself! – Lisa
