There are so many fab holiday beauty gifts this year! Some are more expensive than others, and when you do want to splurge, there are some great brands to choose from.
I have been sent the following wonderful products to test and I highly recommend them for gifts — there is even a great kit for the man in your life!
The Wrinkle Prevention Pillow ($99 USD) combines the comfort of sleeping on a luxurious memory foam pillow AND is ergonomically designed to be extremely comfortable. The pillow lifts and cradles your face so you do not develop permanent sleep lines and wrinkles on your face, neck and chest while you sleep.
I have been testing this pillow for a couple of weeks and am loving it. It is very comfortable and I love the satin pillow case that comes with it. The only downside is that it has a fairly strong synthetic smell to it. But it seems to be fading over time.

- AIRbrush Makeup System 2.0 with your choice of Patricia Field GelaSkin, Martine Girl or Lips on Fire.
- 1 AIRpod Foundation
- 1 AIRpod Blush (Patricia Field recommends AIRpod Blush in Hot Pink)

I have been testing a Temptu and I am loving the coverage I get. It took me a few times to get the hang of it, but I can now do my whole face and it looks smooth and even and as if I don’t have any makeup on at all! This would be a fabulous gift for the makeup lover in your life!
