I get a ton of questions about my favorite lipstick and eye shadow on the daily. I’ll be the first to tell you that I love trying out new products! I have a large variety of lipsticks and eye shadows that I play around with to create the perfect shade. I did recently discover a new lipstick color that I am LOVING and think it’s the perfect color to carry me through the holidays. I’ll be sharing all of my favorite holiday beauty finds from Nordstrom in today’s post!
When it comes to finding the perfect lipstick I look for a few things. I prefer a long lasting lip color that has a nice shine to it. I want something that is hydrating that will keep my lips nice and smooth in the colder weather. As for color, I typically stay in the mauve family. Every now and then I will branch out and go with a deep red but for everyday I really like Lancome LAbsolu Rouge Hydrating Shaping Lip Color in color 391 – Exotic Orchid. It’s the perfect shade that can pull different colors depending on the rest of your makeup. If I’m just wearing it on a regular day, I will only put on one coat. If I am wearing it for a night out I will add a few coats to make the color really pop!
This lipstick runs about $32 and right now you can get a gift with your purchase! I have honestly found so many good make up items I would have never tried if it weren’t for the gifts that come with your purchase. That’s how I discovered my favorite eye shadow palette from Lancome – the Color Design Eye Shadow Palette in Beige Brulee (109). I first tried these colors a few years ago when I bought a mascara from Lancome and the eye shadow came as a gift. By the time I had used up the whole palette, the color combination wasn’t available for purchase anymore. Thankfully, I recently found this combination which is identical to the one I had fallen in love with! I have a eye shadow tutorial coming right after Christmas with this palette and I can’t wait to show you how I apply my eyeshadow for the perfect smoky eye.
If you are looking for a last minute Christmas gift for the makeup lover in your life, Nordstrom offers great beauty sets with fragrances and makeup collections. You can also pick up a Nordstrom gift card or e-gift card too! Don’t forget that if you want to order from Nordstrom and get your item before Christmas, 12/21 is the last day for free shipping to guarantee your items will make it on time!
I’ve listed my favorite beauty gift sets below! I’m hoping Santa sees this post and adds a few of them under the tree for me 🙂
Have you tried the Lancome LAbsolu Rouge Hydrating Shaping Lip Color before? What is your favorite color?
