Hi loves, with the Holiday's right around the corner, I thought I would do a beauty gift guide. I wanted it to be super affordable so everything I will be sharing is under $25.00. The one thing I love when it comes to beauty gifts this time of year, is that there is so many awesome bundles which turn out to be such amazing deals.

I picked out some gifts that I thought would be perfect for someone who loves beauty products. All of these products can be found at

  • Morphe 25A Copper Spice Eyeshadow Palette- this palette is a dream come true for neutral lovers. It has a mix of shimmer and mattes. I feel like it is great everyday palette and works wonderfully with all skin tones. You can never go wrong with a natural eyeshadow palette. It retails for only $18.00 and comes with 25 different shades. 
  • Smashbox Drawn In. Decked Out. Be Legendary Lipstick & Lip Mattifier Set- this set comes with 6 mini lipsticks and a top coat that can be added on top of each lipstick to give it a matte look. If you have a friend that loves beauty but not sure what their style is, this set would be perfect. It comes with a mix of different shades and two different finishes. And this set retails for $25.00. 
  • Peter Thomas Roth Mask Sampler Set- I seriously love getting skin care sets as gifts since I love trying out different products. This set comes with 6 different masks. This set also retails for $25.00. 
  • Real Techniques Flawless Base Set- one thing I find I need all the time is new makeup brushes. You can seriously never have too many makeup brushes! I am a huge fan of Real Technique brushes and this set comes with 4 different brushes and a cup to hold the brushes. It retails for $19.99. 
  • ULTA Ready Set Style Haircare Sampler Kit- this is a great set for hair lovers! It comes with samples of 5 different hair care products from different brands. They have a few different sets depending on what you are looking for in a kit. And the best part? They only retail for $8.99.

Who is excited for all the new Holiday products that have recently been released? I know I am! I am a huge sucker for all the fun packaging. I recently received the new Urban Decay Heavy Metals collection and I have been testing out the new Heavy Metals Metallic Eyeshadow Palette, let me just say, I am in love! 

With this Heavy Metals collection, there is a eyeshadow palette, 13 glitter eyeliners and a lip palette. I will be talking about the palette in this post, but if you would like a review on the eyeliners or lip palette just let me know and I can do a separate post on those. 

This palette comes with 20 beautiful metallic eyeshadows. If you love sparkle, shine and glitter you are going to want to get your hands on this palette. The packaging comes in this beautiful purple case and the eyeshadows pull out and have a mirror in the middle. I was so surprised to see a mirror in the middle of the palette because I have never seen a eyeshadow palette like that before. I find it very unique. The palette has a mix of neutrals and bright colors. Lets move onto the shade names and the swatches. I will go from left to right from the swatches below. 
  • Aluminum which is a metallic warm gray with iridescent micro sparkle 
  • Dive which is a metallic medium blue
  • Punk Rock which is a metallic fuchsia 
  • Amp which is a metallic bright teal
  • Glam Rock which is a metallic silver
  • Ground which is a metallic black with iridescent shimmer
  • Spandex which is a metallic deep blue with purple shift and blue micro sparkle
  • Metalhead which is a metallic deep purple
  • Mullet which is a metallic deep green
  • Twisted which is a metallic gold
  • Glory which is a metallic metallic golden bronze
  • Starfire which is a metallic bright cooper
  • Angelfire which is a metallic pale pink
  • Maiden which is a metallic beige
  • Acoustic which is a metallic nude
  • Bass which is a metallic bronze
  • Demo which is a metallic bronze rose
  • Afterparty which is a metallic red

I seriously love all the names of these shadows because I am huge into rock music and all of these shade names reminds me of going to a bunch of rock concerts. I feel like this palette was made for me. 

With the shadows, Urban Decay came out with a whole new formula. It has high intense pigmentation and they are very smooth and blend really good. You don't even need any fix+ with these shadows to get the amazing metallic look. I love how creative this palette is and I highly recommend checking it out.

It is limited edition, so if you are looking to get your hands on it, I would do so before it is gone for good. I am so excited to have this palette in my collection.

It retails for $55.00 and can be found at
