Looking for more gift ideas for the beauty lover on your list? How about something that’s extra special. Everyone loves receiving something that is made in small batches. We love limited edition gifts because we know not too many people will have them, once they are sold out, they are gone. This makes them very special, almost exclusive. One such beauty item is the Artis x Nicole Guerriero Limited Edition Holiday Brush Set, a trio of beautifully designed makeup brushes perfect for gifting any makeup junkie.

Artis, makers of the stunningly designed, ergonomic makeup brushes, has teamed up with beauty creator sensation Nicole Guerriero to create a limited-edition holiday gift set, the Artis x Nicole Guerriero Limited Edition Holiday Brushes, complete with gorgeous custom packaging. Whether the beauty lover on your list is a makeup pro or enthusiast, these cosmetic brushes make a must-have beauty gift. These brushes showcase trademarked CosmeFibre technology, a revolutionary engineered fiber created by Artis, and an ergonomic handle for delivering effective, flawless results.

The Artis x Nicole Guerriero Limited Edition Holiday Brush Set consists of the following brushes:

  1. Elite Mirror Oval 6:  The best selling size Artis brush in the world; this brush is a favorite among makeup artists and celebrities for applying foundation, concealer, highlighter, blush, contour, and even skincare formulas.
  2. Elite Mirror Oval 3:  This compact brush is a great size and shape to expertly apply and blend products on and around the eyelid area; including a focused application of foundation, contour or concealer to key areas of the face.
  3. Elite Mirror Linear 1:  A revolutionary brush designed so that a thin row of patented CosmeFibre makes creating line shapes easier.  In fact, whether you’re filling in your brows or lining your eyes, this brush is superb to use, because the line it draws can be as narrow as only a couple millimeters wide.

The #NicoleGxArtis Special 3 Brush Set is available for $99.00 on www.ArtisBrush.com.

The Naked Turtle White Rum: Have a Sip, Save a Baby Sea Turtle

We’re continuing our #GivingTuesday coverage with a great way to save the life of a baby Sea Turtle. What’s a more wonderful gift to give, than the gift of life? If you’re looking for more holiday gift ideas that benefit a good cause, keep reading on for a delicious gift idea that is as precious as it is flavorful. This holiday season is the perfect time to #SipNakedSaveTurtles with The Naked Turtle White Rum. With only one in every 1,000 sea turtle hatchlings surviving into adulthood, help these flippered friends make it home for the holidays by gifting the gift that keeps on giving. This wonderfully delicious gift is sure to impress your animal-lover on your list. And if that animal lover on your list is especially obsessed with Sea Turtles or just loves truly adorable animals, the STC (Sea Turtle Conservancy),  the largest and longest-running organization dedicated to the research and conservation of sea turtles, offers a few more gifts ideas that also benefit these adorable sea creatures.

For every bottle of the gluten-free, preservative-free, five-times distilled rum made, a donation is made to the Sea Turtle Conservancy (STC) to save a baby sea turtle.  At just $12.99 for a 750ml bottle, you’ll be able to enjoy a delicious rum and know that you’re helping to save animals. The Naked Turtle White Rum is crafted with quality sugarcane molasses and distilled five times with the pristine waters of the U.S. Virgin Islands. While most rums are aged in oak barrels, The Naked Turtle White Rum never touches the inside of a barrel, resulting in a subtly sweet, crystal clear taste. Plus it’s gluten-free and has no preservatives! This crystal clear rum boasts a nose that’s a heavenly mix of vanilla, custard, brown sugar and light banana. Your palate will love its little hints of vanilla, coconut, and molasses, and it’s sweet, creamy, and smooth finish.
