Holiday Gift Guide & GIVEAWAY – Drugstore Edition (CLOSED)

CVS Beauty Club Giveaway

Every place I’ve lived has had a super handy CVS right around the corner and it’s always been my go-to for everything from emergency sets of eyelashes (because not being able to find my favorite wispies false lashes is an emergency, ya’ll!) to shoe inserts for breaking in those new pumps, and from specialty bobby pins to tame my mane to the perfect shade of red lipstick to match my dress. I’m there at least once a week but sometimes more like 2-3 times, and I’ve been taking advantage of their awesome CVS Beauty Club! If you haven’t heard of it yet, members receive amazing beauty benefits and savings including $5 ExtraBucks® Rewards for every $50 spent on qualifying beauty products, 10% off beauty shopping pass at enrollment and $3 ExtraBucks® Rewards on your birthday!

I always find myself in need of toiletries and beauty products which are  great opportunities to rack up those points but why not take advantage of these perks during the holidays, too? That’s why I’ve collaborated with CVS’ Beauty Club to share some fun, creative gift ideas this holiday season! Although grabbing pre-made gift set seems like the quick thing to do, I always think it’s the thought put into the gift that matters like picking out some must have cosmetic tools for your makeup obsessed little sister or next season’s “it” lip shade for your adventurous BFF. Below are some great, personal and thoughtful gift ideas you can pick up at CVS! Oh and I also mentioned a GIVEAWAY, right? Scroll to the bottom of this post for giveaway details and how you can be one of 2 $50 CVS gift card winners!

CVS Beauty Club Giveaway

Put together a fabulous DIY aromatherapy gift set by picking out yummy scented sugar scrubs, body lotions and bath soaks. Don’t forget a fun loofah & train case!

This would probably be my go-to gift idea for most of the women I know – who wouldn’t love the latest collection of Essie polishes? I played with the theme by using cotton balls to fill & stuff my gift box – fun, convenient & functional! Don’t forget the amazing Nail Polish Corrector Pen tool & quick dry spray – every nail art fan’s best friend!

CVS Beauty Club Giveaway

Many of my friends are constantly dabbling with the newest makeup techniques (I know I do!) so having fresh tools is always appreciated! I love the variety of shapes and sizes these MUA Professional brushes come in and CVS Precision Tip cotton swabs are also my must haves – they’re perfect for cleaning up eye makeup & mastering lip color application! Lately, I also love playing with the new beauty sponges for flawless contouring and concealer blending!

Remember the perfect shade of next season’s “it” lip color that I mentioned above? Why not a bright variety of shades and lip color textures? Maybe this recipient wants to try a shiny gloss during the day but would rather opt for a matte lipstick for the evenings?

False eyelashes are one of those things that people either absolutely love or they can’t wait to try 😉 I adore the idea of a fun metallic cosmetic bag filled with different lash styles and even this perfect starter set complete with glue and specialty application tweezers! Of course, I had to also include my favorite Duo lash glue, too!
