We’ve already established that it’s better to give a little gold in the stockings rather than a lump of coal. But what if you’ve been the naughty one this year? While I doubt that I deserve coal, I might not be on everyone's "Nice" list, so I’m suggesting these coal-colored gifts to be in my stocking this year. I mean, if I’m going to get a stocking filled with black, I should at least be able to make some suggestions on what those items will be.
Shu Uemura Tasai Cream ($38)- Messy bedroom hair is always sexy, but you want your hair to be touchable as well. This is a great styling aid because it offers that great texture, but it also leaves hair healthy and touchable. Plus the fragrance will make potential suitors want to come closer.
Juliette Has A Gun: Vengeance Extreme Edition ($135)- This fragrance is not for the meek. It’s spicy and saucy and totally appropriate for all the bad girls out there. It’s considered in the Chypre family, which is typically defined as having a contrast between citrusy top notes and mossy or woody base notes. The main notes in this fragrance are Patchouli (very common for a Chypre), Madagascar Vanilla, and Bulgarian Rose. Super sensual and edgy.
Boscia Black Hydration Gel ($38)- An amazing cooling and hydrating gel that minimizes the appearance of pores and absorbs excess oil. Sound like a miracle treatment? The lightweight gel uses artichoke leaf extract as an anti-inflammatory, pomegranate enzymes as an antioxidant, active charcoal to absorb oil, vitamin C to even skin tone, and licorice root extract to minimize the appearance of dark spots. What more can you possibly need for your skin after the abuse that you've put it through?
Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray ($39)- The perfect prep for a rockstar’s night out. This spray gives you texture and body that’s out of this world. And if you are someone who partied a little too hard last night, this makes for a great substitute to dry shampoo the next day because there’s no white residue.
Whether you were Naughty or Nice this year, you can definitely utilize these products to perfect your holiday looks. So much better than getting coal.
