Chanel Dior Guerlain Lancome Diptyque Atelier Cologne Clarins YSL makeup beauty lipstick eyeshadow palette candles

So it looks like fall disappeared. It's not a thing anymore. And Thanksgiving? I'm half expecting it to be cancelled next year and replaced by a reindeer festival or Santa's elves appreciation day. When I first moved to the US I was told that Christmas decorations go up the day after Thanksgiving. Yeah well now it's the day after Halloween. Can we enjoy one day at a time and not shop for holiday stuff in August, please? When I first thought about my Holiday Gift Guide this year I found some great beauty items I wanted to include, but they were all sold out by the end of September. Sigh. Not to worry, I did some deep digging around the web and at the store for you and found some really cool stuff from my favorite French Beauty brands. If you're looking for ideas to bring joy to a loved one, here you go!

1- Lancôme Glow For It Highlighting Palette: this highlighter trio comes in 3 shade combinations to match all skin tones, including this one with a gorgeous ruby color that would look fantastic on deeper complexions. You can also use these powders on the eyes or lips so anyone can enjoy them!

2- Guerlain Terracotta Gold: Guerlain's iconic bronzer always makes a good gift and this special holiday packaging is absolutely beautiful.

3- Guerlain Rouge G Gold Edition: the Rouge G is Guerlain's luxury lipstick, with a hefty metal tube that pops out to reveal a mirror. The black and gold holiday edition is stunning and houses the perfect shade of holiday red.

4- Cire Trudon Napoleon Candle: if you don't know Cire Trudon, they're a luxury brand that makes exceptional candles. If you're not into Napoleon, they have other historic figures in their bust candles collection such as Marie-Antoinette, Louis XIV or Benjamin Franklin.

5- Chanel Rouge Allure Holiday Edition: the cult Rouge Allure lipstick gets a red tube for the holidays this year! Definitely a collector for any beauty lover, it comes in 4 shades of red.

6- Diptyque Cosmic Candle Trio: this year the popular candle maker has released new limited edition candles inspired by constellations in stunning black and gold glass jars.

7- Dior Glow & Smoky Eye Palette: Dior holiday eye palettes are always a good choice for a beauty lover. They contain wearable neutral hues and the shimmery shades are very flattering. I have one from a few years back that I love and use regularly.

8- Atelier Cologne Discovery Set: I adore Atelier's fresh scents, so much that I bought their Advent Calendar! This little set would be a great way to discover the brand and their lovely colognes.

9- Chanel Bright On Glossimer Trio: if you're going to gift gloss, it should be by Chanel! The Glossimer formula is very comfortable on the lips and has a beautiful shine. There's also a trio of nude shades.

10- Christophe Robin Regenerating Hair Ritual: a cute little pouch with travel-sizes of this high-end hair care brand's best-selling Prickly Pear enriched products.

11- YSL Lip Vault: give me all the YSL lippies! This vault comes with their classic Rouge Pur Couture, the shiny and balmy Volupté Shine Oil-in-Stick and the super shiny Vinyl Cream.

12- Clarins Advent Calendar: I absolutely love beauty advent calendars, what could be more fun than discovering a new little beauty treat everyday for almost a month? This one contains Clarins' best-selling skincare and makeup products in mini sizes.

13- Clarins Super Restorative Double Serum Gift Set: talking about Clarins' best-selling skincare, their Double Serum has been a popular product for ages. This year they have cute sparkly pouches with a full-size serum and minis of other skincare items.

14- Dior Bijou Lipstick Set: this unique gift set comes with 6 full-size shades of Dior Rouge Lipstick (one of my favorite formulas) and a special edition tube that you can insert them in. I wouldn't mind receiving this gift myself!

And last but not least, a bonus pick that I'm hoping to get for Christmas. Just putting it here in case Santa is reading!

I know, right?? I love both Lancôme's Juicy Shakers and Matte Shakers, and this amazing Shaker Vault contains 10 of the former and 5 of the latter! How cool is that?

I hope you found this gift guide helpful or at least entertaining! Have you started your holiday shopping yet? Are you planning to try and get some Black Friday deals?
