Christmas is upon us and there’s no escaping the holiday rush! Before you turn into a Scrooge complaining about the rush hour traffic, crowded malls, and packed restaurants, why not be your own Christmas Angel and delight yourself with a treat instead? That’s right, it’s time to spoil yourself rotten. You’ve been working hard all year long—you should get something special for yourself, too. You deserve it, girl! Case in point: Because I’m feeling a bit festive, I’ve narrowed my wishlist down to these cult faves in sparkly silver and gold. Check ‘em out!
NutraLuxe Lash MD
If you want fuller lashes in 2015, I suggest you start investing in a lash serum as early as now. With regular use, your lashes will become fuller and healthier in a few months! And you know what that means: no need to spend on mascara!
Essie’s Set in Stones Glitter Polish
If you’re a bit of a conservative, now’s the time to get flashy! After all, it’s the holidays, right? Show your fun side by getting glitzy on your fingers and toes!

Dior’s Diorific Lipstick
This splurge will make you feel like a million bucks! The packaging itself screams luxury and the velvety red lipstick (I chose the shade Diorella) will make you kissable all year round.
RMK’s UV Face Protector
This Japanese brand always gets it right—whether it’s with foundation, blush, or lipsticks. RMK always hits the spot when it comes to minimalist skincare, too. This SPF lotion glides smoothly onto your skin and doesn’t leave that white sheen unlike most SPF products.

Tony Moly’s Intense Care Gold 24K Snail Cream
This decadent anti-aging cream might just be your fountain of youth. It keeps skin ultra-moisturized and radiant.
Elizabeth Arden’s Pure Finish Mineral Powder Foundation
Elegantly packaged, this mineral foundation (which I also featured in this all-minerals story) is not just pretty, it’s quite smart, too. With a well-designed powder distribution system that allows you to get just the right amount of minerals in each application, this is definitely worth the splurge.

Missha’s L’Eau de Missha in Stay Beside Me
Keep it fresh and crisp with this perfume. It’s handy enough for your purse or evening clutch, so it’s perfect for perfume touch-ups on fancy dates and nights out.
