The holidays are in full swing and although Black Friday and Cyber Monday have come and gone, I still don’t have all my shopping done! If you find yourself in the same situation and need some gift inspiration for the beauties on your list, today I have a treat for you. I’ve asked some of my blogging friends from the Beauty Blog Coalition to spill the beans to VanityRouge readers and share their holiday gift ideas for this year. So that means in this one post you will get insight into 18 beauty blogger’s gift picks from makeup to skincare, nail care and more!
Below I’ve captured a quick snapshot of what each blogger is featuring, but for the full details be sure to visit the blogger’s links so you can be taken to their blog post with more details on the product, swatches and in many cases full reviews. Enjoy!
