Last Minute Stocking Stuffers (You Might Want To Keep For Yourself)

Any other last minute shoppers out there?  I'm usually quite the procrastinator to begin with, but this year I was REALLY naughty with my holiday shopping.  Thank goodness for Amazon Prime, eh?  But regardless of whether I'm doing shopping at the very last minute, or if I actually got my life together in a reasonable amount of time, one of my favorite things to buy is stocking stuffers.  Filling stockings up with candy and gift cards and beauty minis is the best!  (Also, they're my favorite presents to receive).  I'm particularly pickled by these cute minis from Sephora. 
Bite Beauty Mix and Mingle lipsticks are packaged cute enough to pop into a stocking sans gift wrap, but the beauty is what's inside.  It's a double-ended mini lipstick, so you get to try 2 colors for $14, when normally you only get to try a single full size color for $24.  If you don't already use Bite lip products, this is the perfect time to get on board.  The lip colors are unbelievably creamy, and they're made with food-grade ingredients, so you can feel good about using them.  There are no creamy chemicals, they're gluten free, and super nourishing with resveratrol.  Most importantly, the color pay-off is outstanding.

Get excited, folks, because Derek Lam has announced the launch of the 10 Crosby fragrance collection.  It features 10 fragrances inspired by actual women Derek saw out his window at 10 Crosby Street, and the imagined stories of adventure he came up with after seeing each woman.  The full size EDP's will be available at Sephora and on January 28th, but right now we can enjoy a fabulous 10 piece collection preview set at Sephora.  The bottles are not stingy by any means, so they're perfect to pop in a bunch of stockings at the last minute if you need to, or keep some (all) for yourself to truly experience the collection at a bargain price ($95 for the 10 piece collection preview, while the full size bottles are $95 (50ml EDP)-$175 (175ml EDP).
