nyx_lip_palette.jpgWhen it comes to stocking stuffer-type gifts, we are always on the lookout for ideas that would suit the many makeup-loving gals on our lists. It just so happens that Kerry Malouf (celebrity makeup artist to Emmy Rossum, Alicia Silverstone, Jennifer Goodwin and others) suggested a great one to us that we had to pass along.

Kerri says: “Makeup palettes make for great holiday gifts! These amazing Luscious Lip Palettes from Nyx Cosmetics are the perfect stocking stuffer for all women— the busy mom, beauty lovers, college student. They provide a combination of high-pigment color mixed with high shine gloss, so you can mix and match, highlight and shade— for the perfect pout!”

Two she recommends most:


Champagne Sparkle:

“The shades work well for the holiday festivities. Mix the glitter glosses with the coral and raspberry shades for added sparkle and shine!”

Amy used mark Drenched Moisturlicious Lip Color in Wave ($6,, but here are some more options for creating your own glamorous, retro-inspired look.

While bold, look-at-me eyes have always ruled the fall trend report (and are still hot this season), the bold, red lip has made a fierce and very glamorous comeback. Everything from a classic, smooth-finished cherry red to a vampy and rebellious bordeaux were seen on the runways during Fashion Week. We recommend that if you are not sure if this will work for you, or fear going too bold on your lips, press red lipcolor onto lips for a stained look, or try it as sheer gloss. Keep cheeks and eyes softly colored in light and neutral tones.
