Holiday Beauty: Starting holiday shopping a bit early @QVC

I like to start my shopping a bit early…and at home…in my pjs! And dads out there (and anyone else who is trying to avoid the malls this season) QVC has the items for you! The folks at QVC have the best selection of gift ideas this holiday season and they sent me a few gift sets to test out. If your wife, mom, tween, niece or sister loves to receive a beauty kit or make-up kit as a gift (and who doesn’t?) QVC has the most coveted selection of make-up, beauty, perfume sets and more. In fact they have my two favorite brands – Tarte and Josie Maran. Both make-up and skin care lines are on the natural side and have no yucky chemicals in them. I feel good about giving my teen and tween girls lip sticks and moisturizers from each of these lines. They love the argan oil especially and this I would say is a must have for dry, itchy, winter skin.

The Decadent Bliss Radiant Beauty Argan Head to Toe Luxury Set from Josie Maran has the 100% Pure argan Oil, a creamy oil in a tube and the whipped argan oil as well, all to to moisturize face, treat split ends, or condition cuticles – Multiple uses all in one kit.

The Josie Maran Argan 3-in-1 Core Color Hydrating Lipstick Duo is perfect for stocking stuffers and is $30. This is a 3-in-1 lipstick formula with the moisture of a balm, the pigment of a lipstick, and the shine of a gloss – love the formulation as it goes on easy and with nice light color. It comes with two so you can have one in your make-up kit and one in the car. The colors are really nice and very moisturizing.

My other favorite from QVC is tarte. The tarte LipSurgence 5 piece set is perfect for teens. I like the LipSurgence as it’s not too sticky and the colors in this kit are wonderful. QVC also has tarte eyeliner and eyeshadow kits so check them out here

What is best about QVC is you can shop online too. Happy early shopping!

What to get the teens this holiday?

I really have no idea what to get the teens this holiday season! lol!  Well, they are a hard bunch to buy a gift for.  It is nice to be able to open a present on Christmas but since this age group is very picky I tend to go with a gift card — which of course they do love. Here are my suggestions:

Yes a gift card – some may say they are not personal but teens do love them. What I do is wrap up a gift with it. My go to gift is a gift card to the movies and then wrap up some chocolate and treats with it! Simple and you are done!

QVC – they really are my go to site (or you can catch them on TV) – nice gifts, nicely wrapped and affordable. From hats to scarfs and more they really have a good selection for teens.  I love the jewelry they have too – like these Honora 8.0mm Cultured Pearl Sterling Stud Earrings (Item #J294066) For approximately $22.00 you have a really nice pair of earrings and a cute matching jewelry bag to go with it.

Tech and Teens – For girls I think it is much easier as you can purchase accessories, jewelry, handbags and I am sure they will appreciate any type of technology! Same for teen boys – it can be tricky but a gift card, any electronics or brand name sweatshirt – think North Face or UnderArmour and your shopping for teens can be complete in a flash.

Happy Shopping!
