  7. Love the They’re Real mascara. I’ve always wanted to try the Josie Maran oil, maybe I’ll add it to my Christmas list. I’ve seen you talk about it before and you had such good things to say about it.

  8. Oh. My. Goodness. I can’t even sit here and comprehend all of the amazingness that is happening. As a converted beauty junkie I want to get and give everything on this list! I love the lipstick color, even though I would probably never wear it.
    The brush set might be my favorite.

  12. I am totally a beauty addict, so I’m loving these picks for the holdiays. I bought the Naked compact earlier this year and it was the best beauty purchase I’ve made in a long time!
