2010 is already coming to a close. It seems like just yesterday when summer activities were in full bloom and there was absolutely no thought given then to Thanksgiving and Christmas. Try as you might to fight the pending holidays, they’re upon us, so prepare now by getting your holiday shopping list ready and find gifts for family & friends that will surely make an impression.

A sexy, sheer lip color is always in season and who wouldn’t appreciate the gift of eight choices in Stila’s Lip Glaze Color Set ($25, This set gives you 50% more than their previous sets. You get four of Stila’s top-selling shades and four limited, holiday-exclusive shades. I just gotta have it.

You may want to keep the E.L.F. Cosmetics 100 pc. Eyeshadow Palette ( for yourself, but since this palette only costs $10, buy two of them and give one to a friend. What you get is 100 eyeshadow colors, and the necessary accouterment like a mirror and eyeshadow applicators. Make this the perfect gift by adding Sephora’s portable I Love Sephora Brush Set ($29 -not pictured here). Use these great brushes anywhere, anytime.
