Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

Happy Monday all!


I added a section called "Honorable Mentions" for products that the community likes but didn't make the list. If you have any recommendations for gifts please let me know in the comments! If you see a recommendation you agree with be sure to leave a comment letting us know. This list is truly sourced from YOUR favorites!


Hope everyone is having a great start to their week!

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

Thanks Katie ... going to use the list for "the Youths" for my nieces!   

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

@MayaWM I'm glad it helps! All the Fenty and ColourPop Smiley Very Happy

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

The list for acquaintances is definitely going to help me later since I plan on getting my professor a gift. Smiley Very Happy

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

Thanks for posting this list, @KatieBT!  I'm sure it wasn't easy consolidating all our recommendations!  There are some awesome gift ideas here! <3

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

@KatieBT  I would love to add another really good $25 Gift Set: Huda Beauty Contour & Lip Strobe!

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

This is my lifeline for gift ideas for my two daughter and two teen age granddaughters!

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

@abashfulbeauty that's great to hear! Smiley Happy 

RE: Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

Yesss. I bought 3 just for me!

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

@Fernleaf I have seen a lot of BIC members pick the Huda set up! Given this is a community-sourced list I need a couple more community members to give the stamp of approval for this set before adding to the list. 


BIC- do you recommend the Huda Contour and Lip Strobe set??


If we can get a few more people to comment that they recommend this I'll create a new "Honorable Mentions" section at the bottom or swap products that go out of stock! I definitely want everyone to chime in with anything I may have missed!

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

I love this set! I got it in trophy wife and I'm considering getting one for my secret santa at work. The packaging is beautiful and sturdy and the colors and formula are stunning

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

Love these products and totally agree that they would make perfect gifts! Last year I purchased sets such as these for most of my friends and they absolutely loved them. Fun to share skincare/makeup/hair finds Smiley Happy

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

This is a fantastic list! I might go with the gift card option for friends who are more particular with their makeup/skincare. Smiley Happy

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

This aligns pretty well with the community's tastes! Speaking for myself, I know I would be thrilled to receive any of these as gifts. Smiley Happy

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

Def a fab list!! Everyone did an excellent job with the recommendations!

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

I've said it before and I'll say it again: that Hourglass Ambient palette is a multi tasker that I love to wear every day. 

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

@ShiraBT That Ambient palette might need to come home with me one of these days Smiley Very Happy

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

@ShiraBT do you have any other Hourglass palettes?  i want to buy this one but I have a few other hg palettes so having a hard time justifying it.  Really wanted it for the two middles shades.   

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

hi @begonia46: I do not. But I can tell you some of my other little faves if you tell me which face part you're trying to make up. Such as: MILK's Lip Metal which is juicy, not drying, shiny, and not sticky. Smiley Happy 

Re: Community Chosen: Holiday Gift Lists

Cool! I was wondering when we would see this.  Thanks Smiley Happy
