Too FacedThe Chocolate Bar Eye Palette – Just released and highly anticipated, at $49 this palette includes 16 matte and shimmer shadows scented with real chocolate because it’s formulated using real cocoa powder!

Gift Cards – I hate gift cards…said no one in the history of everdom! One can never go wrong with gift cards and most stores now offer instant e-gift cards where the gift certificate will be emailed! For the nail polish lover I recommend a Cult Nails gift certificate because they have so many drool worthy shades to choose from! My favorite makeup company OFRA Cosmetics also has e-gift certificates available as low as $10! If you aren’t sure what category of products to aim for then I would opt for an gift card, they have pretty much everything from beauty to electronics!

Bonus – Love. Yup, love is the best gift for the people you care about. It’s priceless! 😉

      I vowed not to get another palette this year but this one is hard to resist. I really wanted the phone case/palette but I don't have or want an iPhone. The case just looks so cute!
