Stuff My Stocking III
By: Gigi Anders
Leave it to Too Faced. No politically correct euphemisms, no Holidays in the City stuff. This is Christmas in New York, dammit. And it may the the best beauty collection I’ve seen in beaucoup yuletides. In order to not over-freak you out, we’ll show you la crème de la crème in separate posts.
Grande Hotel Café ($49) is sold out as of this writing, but Wish List it because they’re restocking as we type. Thinking it’d be perfect for your best friend/daughter/sister/niece/granddaughter/ etc., you will buy this fabulous, beautifully illustrated 3-D pop-up multi-palette wonder that includes Better Than Sex, a.k.a. the world’s best mascara. Because you have good intentions. You’re a giver. Maybe you’ll open the box. Nothing major, just a little peek inside. All righty, This suckah’s not going anywhere.
Enter the Grande Hotel through its magnetized decorated hotel French doors, like a dollhouse, and behold three scented palettes, each in its own little magnetized book. (It’s more than we can handle, but we go on.) Each features six complementary matte and sparkly powder eyeshadows and a powder blush.
Eggnog Latte, Peppermint Mocha, and Gingerbread Cookie.
Want. Keep. Must have.
