We’re rounding up
the prettiest picks of the year.
From glittery tips to the eyeliner that’s
insanely flattering, here are our beauty crushes. P.S. They just so happen to
make sweet stocking stuffers, too!
Nails packed a ton of sparkle this year, which made manis extra fun. Bold blues
and punchy purples with oversized flecks stole our hearts (and, err,
moolah—these aren’t cheap!).

A bubble bath is great but, let’s be honest, who has all that time to sit
around and soak it up? Body washes went extra natural this year, which meant
time under the faucet was actually good for your skin. This one is a total
sugar rush and is crazy moisturizing.

We found out one of our fave beauty brands, Bourjois Paris, was closing up shop
in America. Tres sad, right? Their kohl liner rules for it’s smudge-ability
factor. Snap them up before we nab the last of ’em.
Highlighter was def the product we couldn’t live without in 2010. A quick flash
of it across your cheeks has people swooning about your skin. Seriously. Plus,
TopShop basically has the cutest makeup on the planet.

OK, this one is a bit of a stretch. This year all the cool girls were dipping
their tips in shades of greige, beige and mushroom-y purple. After seeing a
million muted manicures, we started coveting Barbie-pink nails big-time. Makes
for a fun pedi when the temps are freezing!
