Chic Last Minute Gifts Under $200

Chic Last Minute Gifts Under $200

 

I always still have some Christmas shopping to do at the last minute, so I’m a big fan of retailers who offer great shipping promotions for last minute gifts. A few of them are Saks Fifth Avenue, Nordstrom, Bloomingdale’s and Neiman Marcus Last Call. I spent quite a bit of time perusing these sites, and those of other retailers located in the city, to find great last minute gifts and deals out there, so I thought I would share some of them with you.

If you aren’t able to take advantage of the great shipping promotions, or just don’t want to risk it, you can always run out to the stores and shop directly from them!

Stylisted Gift Gorgeous Gift Card – Stylisted provides in-home hair styling and makeup appointments with vetted beauty professionals throughout Chicago, New York and Los Angeles. Give her the ultimate gift of gorgeous with a Stylisted Gift Card!

Clarisonic ‘Opal’ Facial Sonic Infusion System – This is a great gift for the age-conscious person on your list. Opal helps infuse serum more effectively than manual application for younger-looking eyes.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Beauty Express for Brows & Eyes – Give the gift of beautiful brows on the go! This portable brow maintenance kit includes a sampling of some of Anastasia’s core brow products, including brow stencils, cream wax, eye shadow duo & brow powders.

Bobbi Brown Blush – I’ve been using Bobbi Brown Blush for years and haven’t found one that compares to its silky formula. With over 20 shades to choose from, you’re sure to find the perfect match for the glamour girl on your list.

Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 20 – Oil Free – This is another long time favorite beauty product of mine. I have yet to meet any beauty expert who would say there is another tinted moisturizer out there better than this one.

Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s Up! – I was just introduced to this highlighter at the Windy City Blogger Collective Holiday Shopping Soiree a couple of weeks ago and am hooked!

Tom Ford Beauty Lip Shine, Ravenous – Tom Ford can do no wrong, and his beauty collection is no exception. Add a pop of color to her beauty regimen with Tom Ford Beauty Lip Shine in Ravenous.

Laura Mercier Foundation Primer – Hydrating – This is a great beauty gift because you don’t need to worry about getting the right shade or know what type of foundation she uses. This primer allows foundation to glide on easily, stay fresh and keeps it from rubbing off.

Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Mascara – Long, beautiful lashes are the perfect accessory for a night on the town. Benefit Cosmetics They’re Real! Mascara lengthens, curls, volumizes, lifts, and separates lashes for a spectacular “out to here” look!

Chanel Les 4 Ombres Quadra Eyeshadow – Spices – Another long time favorite beauty product of mine is this compact of four versatile eyeshadows by Chanel. The neutral shades in the Spices compact are great for everyday use and match most skin tones.
