Ho, Ho, Ho, and a bucket of rum. Which is what you’re going to need to get through this busy holiday season. Well, that and a few holiday beauty essentials that can take you from work to mall to party, and everywhere in between. We asked our friends at Shoppers Drug Mart to share with us exactly what you need to arrive happy and glowing on the other side of December 25th. And of course, they were happy to share.
Psssttt…in the spirit of the season, all of our beauty essentials could be yours. Just give us your deets below. Stay calm, and Stay Brazen. There’s spiked egg nog at the end of this tunnel. (And a fun contest at the end of this article…)
Quo Luxury Lipstick Wardrobe
You might have to tell a few white lies to get out of certain commitments, but now you can do it with lusciously coloured lips. Straight from the Quo Holiday collection, this beautiful set contains four lipsticks in pretty rose gold tubes. Love a soft lip? You’ll get it in this kit, too. Want something bolder? It’s all yours for the making.
Find Crème (a nude), Orchid (a soft pink), Fig (a rose hue) and Raspberry Red (bright and vivid).
Quo Ready-Set-Travel Brush Set
Heading out to visit family over the holidays or maybe jetting off somewhere hot and beachy? We hope so, because#BrazenLoves to travel—and we love that this kit is compact yet contains all the essential makeup brushes you need. You’ll never be caught brushless again, that’s for damn sure. The bonus? The pretty gold canister packs well and keeps your brushes safe during travel.
From the limited-edition Quo Holiday collection, this is a steal at under $20.
Joe Fresh CC Translucent Powder
While Rudolph didn’t mind having a shiny, red nose, we know you do. Never fear, because you’re glowing-in-the-wrong-way problems are OVER. This silky translucent powder is genius. The product uses soft colour-correcting pigments to even out skin tone and cancel out any problem areas. It’s great to keep on hand for touching up throughout the day—or night—as you run from one holiday party to another.
GOSH Forever Matt Eye Shadow Stick
You know that we we love beauty products that are pretty, easy and convenient to use, and that do what they say they do. And these eyeshadow sticks are all of the above. You get pure matte colour in one stroke, they are easy to apply (no need for a brush!), and they twist up (no need for sharpening). The intense colour—they come in four brown to dark-grey shades—is waterproof and long lasting.
Could beauty get any simpler?
Joe Fresh Jewelry
You knew that Joe Fresh Beauty arrived at Shoppers Drug Mart earlier this year, but did you know Shoppers has an exclusive collection of Joe Fresh jewellery, too? It’s a wonderful thing to keep in your back pocket, because we hate to be caught unaccessorized, especially at holiday time.
We found a few great necklaces to pair up with our favourite LBDs for the holiday party season and they’re all under $30 each. What an easy way to change up our look.
