The holidays are upon us ladies! Yay for twinkling lights, chilly weather and family gatherings! and also for retailers who have kept me sane when I need to shop for last minute gifts. Recently in my Instagram stories I shared that because baby Julian takes most of my time and resources (oh yeah, babies ARE expensive!), I am all about gifting presents that are easy on the wallet and trouble-free to shop for and a total hit (since they are personal favorites). That is why this past weekend I headed to my local Sephora inside JCPenney to take care of some last-minute gifts for all my beauty and makeup obsessed family and friends.

1.Bite Beauty Sweet Treats Agave Lip Care Set $12 (sold out online but check your local Sephora inside JCPenney) | Gift sets are my go-to for stocking stuffers, Secret Santa gift exchange and even for co-workers. I know we all have that one gal who is hard to shop for, but with Sephora inside JCPenney’s sets you can’t go wrong. I have been using the lavender lip mask from Bite Beauty after my pregnancy and it has been the only thing that has helped my dry and chapped lips.




Blame it on Mei, Miami Fashion Blogger, Last Minute Gifts Under $502. Huda Beauty Obsessions Palette $27 | This eyeshadow compact might be small but it sure packs a punch, of color that is! It is perfect for traveling or even to carry in your everyday makeup case. I love that it is available in several color themes for everyone on your list with different preferences.




Blame it on Mei, Miami Fashion Blogger, Last Minute Gifts Under $503. Sunday Riley Multivitamins Set $28 | Another set that is bound to cause Christmas overjoy! I changed my skincare routine recently to include several skincare products by Sunday Riley and these two happen to be part of it. I use the LUNA Sleeping Night Oil at night with my rose quartz roller and the E.O. Rapid Flash Brightening Serum during the morning. PS: I promise to share my new routine soon.

4. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-Hour Full Coverage Foundation $39 | Recently on my Instagram stories I raved about how I have fallen in love all over again with this foundation. It used to be my favorite years ago, and now after trying other brands, I see why I love this one so much and why my gift recipient will love it too. Not only is it made of natural components and is of great quality, but it is the smoothest and most flattering formula I have tried. It goes on perfectly, has a matte finish, and it DOES last throughout the day.

5. Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette $49 | This is another personal favorite! I’ve had this palette for over 6 months now and reach for it 9 out of 10 times when I apply my eye makeup. It surely is an all-in-one palette with 21 shades for every possible eye look.

      Hi Cathy,
      Yes Bite Beauty’s lip products are among my favorite. After pregnancy my lips have become very dry and the agave lip care is my go-to!
