The amazing artist Lisa Frank collection is beyond fabulous. Love, love, love! These make for incredible stocking stuffers. Check it out –

Go for eyes with a beautiful Lisa Frank Eyeshadow Brush ($4.99) that has the cutest unicorns ever as well as the Eyeshadow Single in Picnic ($7.99). The Eyeshadow Brush has Lisa’s signature magical creatures and Glamour Dolls added the synthetic cruelty-free hairs with the soft pink ombre ends. Total magic.  The Picnic Eyeshadow is really pretty – a shimmery peachy-pink that really brightens the eye. It’s a great all over lid shade or terrific for just the corners. Heck, I’d almost buy it just for the packaging!

The Angled Blush Brush ($4.99) is just as adorable as the Eyeshadow Brush – more unicorns!! Unicorns that help you highlight and contour and blush all day long. The synthetic cruelty-free hairs have a slanted shape making it easy to use on those cheekbones. The brush is soft but firm enough to grab product. I am really impressed, especially at this price point!

Pair this brush with the Lisa Frank Bitten and Bronzed Matte Bronzer ($4.99) for some beautifully glowing skin. It’s subtle, natural but healthy and glowing. Very, very nice!! And the baby tiger is adorable.

You could purchase every single item and spend under $25. These make terrific Secret Santa gifts and wonderful gifts for teens – or for yourself! The quality is really excellent. Take a look at Glamour Dolls online at glamourdollsmakeup.com.  – Lisa

Perfectly petite stocking stuffers from Pixi Beauty

Stocking stuffers from Pixi!

Stocking stuffers from Pixi!

No trip to Target is complete without a major cosmetics aisle haul of Pixi Beauty.  I love that Target has testers, and the super cute size of the new items and kits that Pixi sent us make them absolutely perfect stocking stuffers!

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm Trio

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm Trio

I am a huge, huge fan of the Pixi Beauty Shea Butter Lip Balms.  I keep the Comfort Clear next to my bed, and I have one of the tinted balms in my purse at all times.  I let my mom use my Ripe Raspberry when her lips felt dry, and she wouldn’t even give it back to me!  The Shea Butter Lip Balm Trio ($16) includes three shades:  Comfort Clear, Honey Nectar, and Ripe Raspberry.  Be sure to pick up one of these shea butter and vitamin E infused lip balm trios for yourself, too.

Pixi Concealing Concentrate in Adaptable Beige

Pixi Concealing Concentrate ($12) may look tiny, but it packs a big concealing punch!  This waterproof concealer is highly pigmented so it covers all sorts of skin sins.  The jar opening is small, but it keeps me from the temptation of using my finger.  A concealer brush easily grabs all you need – and you don’t need much – to conceal the after-effects of all that holiday partying.

Pixi Quick Fix Powder in Translucid

Pixi Quick Fix Powder in Translucid

Isn’t this loose powder absolutely adorable??  The Pixi Quick Fix Powder in Translucid ($20) works for all but the darkest skin tones to finish makeup and buff away shine.  The application sponge and the mirror on the top of the lid make this a fantastic way to powder your nose on the go.

Marcia raves about Pixi nail polishes and for good reason.  These $8 polishes are the perfect size, not so big they go bad before you have a chance to use all the polish.  They come in fabulous shades and are chip resistant so manicures and pedicures last. The 3-free polishes even have built-in UV protection to prevent discoloration. Three great shades to put in any stocking are Almond Glow, a nude with subtle pink shimmer; Crystal Champagne, a festive multi-faceted rose gold shimmer; and Nude Dazzle, a light metallic nude.

Pixi Fairy Dust Favourites

Pixi Fairy Dust Favourites

Pixi Fairy Dust Favourites ($12) is a single stack of five loose powder highlighter/eyeshadows.  Each screw top lid is also the container for the color above, so it’s not something you can separate into five different gifts.  No worries, the colors are complimentary and all work great together.  They are beautiful eyeshadows that can be deepened with a mixing medium.  Fairy Dust also makes an awesome cheek highlighter.  The lighter shades give skin a beautiful glow when mixed with body lotion, and they make lips look lush when patted over lipstick.  The stack contains Fairy Dust in Snow Sparkle, a glimmering white; Gold Dust, a candlelit gold-nude shimmer; Brightening Bare, a medium nude sheen; Mocha Magic, a warm tan shimmer; and Copper Sheen, a rich metallic copper.

Any one of these petite pretties will perk up a stocking…get them all for a truly sublime stocking experience!  You can find them at Target or online at Pixi Beauty. – Lisa
