Urban decay naked eyeshadow |

What’s even better about this set is the value. You’re probably going to want to buy one for your beauty junkie and one for yourself! (, $62)

Body lotion arranged to look like a lollipop |

The Body Shop Body Butter Lollipop

Chances are your beauty-obsessed BFF has already tried the body butters from The Body Shop, since they’re notably one of the store’s best sellers. And if you yourself have tried these, you know why. From their creamy-soft textures to the fact that they’re made with Community Trade ingredients, these are the best body butters in town! What’s even better is that the company has created an adorable lollipop gift set featuring five of its best body butters. But be warned: As much as they smell and feel good, you cannot eat these products. Sorry. (, $25)

The perfect gift for the makeup junkie on your list, this leopard/lace makeup travel bag lets you carry around your makeup in style. Being sold specially for the holiday season, this M.A.C. bag can store everything from travel eyeshadows to lip gloss to brushes — ideal for when you don’t have time to do your makeup before the family Christmas party. But this gift gets even better: It actually folds into a handy somewhat-kind-of evening bag, which will get people asking where you got that fabulous clutch. (, $40)

You can’t forget the fragrance connoisseur on your list. Dolce & Gabbana Rose the One is perfect for that friend who collects so many perfumes, she’s lost count (you know who I’m talking about). With a scent that can only be described as a whimsical walk through a rose garden in full bloom, D&G combined blackcurrant, peony, vanilla and mandarin, just to name a few essences, to create a fragrance your friend will surely wear well into the new year — if the bottle lasts that long, of course.
