Holiday Gift Guide – The Five Minute Face

Posted by LUX Staff on

With less than two weeks until Christmas, the official countdown has begun, and last minute present shopping is underway. If you find yourself still stuck on what to get that favourite co-worker, sister-in-law or friend who always gets you something fabulous, we’re here to help! We made this weeks gift guide with them (and you) in mind.

There is simply not enough hours in a day, so give her the gift of time. LUX ladies have become masters of the five minute face: everything a girl needs to look pulled together and out the door in less time than it takes for your coffee to percolate.



1. Rouge Bunny Rouge Eye shadow: This adorable eye shadow keeper gives you the ability to customize the colours just for that special someone. LUX ladies have fallen head over heels for these shadows that make it possible to master day looks and daring smokey eyes with only two colours. For more ideas on how to blend these stunning shades, be sure to see our Holiday Photo Journal.

2. Rouge Bunny Rouge Luminous Skin Wand
: Especially in December, when the nights are long, filled with endless events, sleep seems to be a luxury. The RBR Luminous Skin Wand is a lifesaver for those groggy mornings. This little wand erases dark circles so you look like you never missed a minute of your beauty sleep.
Available online here.

3. RMS Lip2Cheek: Nothing says ‘time saving’ like a product that does two jobs for the price of one. These Lip2Cheek creams, featuring shades in subtle and bold tones, look great doing double duty as both a moisturizing lip tint and as a hint of colour on your cheeks. Plus as an added bonus, like all RMS products, they are all-natural.
Available online here.

4. Rouge Bunny Rouge Tinted Moisturizer: If you’re hoping to master the perfect ‘almost no make-up’ look this tinted moisturizer is essential. ‘Sketches on Water’ minimizes redness, dark circles and any other skin imperfections you’re hoping to conceal, leaving you with flawless and dewy skin, faster than you can say snooze button.
Available online here.

5. Ilia Lip Conditioner: These lipsticks are ideal for a woman on the go. With over a handful of vibrant shades to choose from, this moisturizing lipstick works double duty with layerable colour, so you can transition from a soft cherry lip to a sultry red with just a few coats! Available online here.

6. Geisha Ink Mascara: This tubing mascara has held it’s spot as LUX’s best selling product for nearly as long as it’s been in the store. It boasts amazing volume and impact, and be forewarned, this mascara has a tendency to make all first time users into lifetime converts with it’s outstanding long lasting formula!
Available online here.

7. St. Tropez Violet Illuminator: This subtle cream illuminator banishes dull and drab mid-winter skin with a soft iridescent glow that will transition your skin from pale to perfect ivory in under a minute. Guaranteed to make Snow White jealous of your radiant fair complexion!

8. Lipstick Queen Big Bang Glosses: Defying all other glosses, Lipstick Queen has come up with a formula for a non-sticky, high impact gloss. This collection of glosses can be worn on their own for a simple laid back look or layered over top of any other colours for a more dramatic look.
