  1. Love your suggestions. If only I lived close enough so that you could come stuff my stocking!! I use my Macaron brush all the time. My granddaughter loves going through my purse and that's what she looks for first. I have a few Moda brushes and the quality is terrific for the price especially. I'm going to Ulta this week and checking out those Morgan Taylor Platinum polishes.

    1. Thanks, Marcia! If only we lived close, indeed! I am not at all surprised that Talia loves your Macaron brush! The Moda brushes are so nice and affordable! I highly recommend that you check out the Morgan Taylor polishes on your next Ulta trip! They are so beautiful!

  2. I needed that makeup repair kit last week when a blush came in the mail and was shattered! All great picks! I love shopping for stocking stuffers!

    1. It is so handy to have! I just wish that I had this kit when I was depotting tones of eyeshadows and blushes a few months ago!

  3. I think that new makeup drop hybrid is pretty smart! I like both silicone and traditional sponges so having both in one tool is really convenient.

    1. Exactly! It is such an ingenious idea, and it works so well!

  4. Fabulous picks here! I would love anything from Rimmel or the makeup brush cleaning pad!

    1. Thanks, Babi! you really can't go wrong with Rimmel, and the brush cleaning pad is amazing!
