We all have at least one of those friends who’s rarely spotted without the latest, most popular lipstick shade. The one you always go to for advice when your skin breaks out. Who’s always there with a killer suggestion when you’re stumped over what your next haircut might look like. The beauty obsessive.
Nothing makes a makeup, hair-care, or skin-care lover happier than a thoughtful beauty gift for the holidays, but giving them something you know they haven’t already tried and tossed is a big risk. Not to mention their bar for product quality is much higher than the average consumer. Just picking any old neutral eye shadow palette won’t do, nor will picking a seasonal skin-care set at random.
But that’s where the beauty experts at Allure come in. We test products all day, every day. We know quality when we see and feel it.
So here’s a guide to some of our favorite products that just so happen to make excellent beauty gifts for anyone in your life who’s just as into beauty as we are.
