Beauty

I don’t know about you, but I think that we can all do better than an orange and a pack of gum in the old stockings come Christmas morning (or whatever holiday you choose to celebrate). Check out these “mini” options and get a little more creative than fruit this year with these pocket-sized products.

These tins are SO cute you’ll want to have them all! With their vintage look and tiny size, Tinte Cometics’ Flavored Lip Colors are great to pull out to snazz up your pucker. You can go soft and natural with Cream Soda (nude) or dramatic with Peppermint (a rich red) and the shea butter and vitamins keep you kissably soft. www.tintecometics.com (anyone remember having these when you were, oh…about 7?)

For credit card sized beauty check out Pixi’s Eye Beauty and Gloss Kits. The Miracle Eye Kit includes eight eyeshadows in nudes and pinks while the Perfect Nude Gloss Kit has honey, fudge, and bronze shades – skinny enough to slip in your pocket with no added bulk! www.pixibeauty.com

To grab those teeny tiny hairs for perfect holiday party brows pick up Swittools’ Heart Tweezers. They’re about an inch wide and come with a magnifying mirror so you can check your face before you go and flirt with an elf. www.qvc.com, www.swittools.com

For the ultimate in plumping options search out Pout’s Indulge Me Forever set of their bestselling lip plumpers. Five colors ranging from berry to nude to clear will be great toppers to any lip shade you choose and the peppermint smell is very “come hither”. www.pout.co.uk

Not only does this keychain get your in touch with your inner bunny, but Playboy Beauty’s Gloss & Go has a pretty pink lipgloss that looks great on everyone. And the best part is that a portion of the proceeds go to the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. www.beauty.com, www.komen.org

The ultimate space savers this year are Hard Candy with their Secret Stash. Coming in at approximately 2x2x1, this little powerhouse is packed with four eyeshadows, bronzer, blotting powder, and four lip shades – nuts, I know! This will definitely fit in your 6×8 bag as you board the plane to the North Pole. www.hardcandy.com
