Tartan and Twine Beauty Case

Brinton Alley Beauty Organizer ($22.00; Ulta and

Mad for Plaid. The Tartan + Twine 3-piece Beauty Organizer is compact, yet versatile. It zips open like a book to reveal two (2) detachable pouches, a makeup brush organizer and side zip pouch. Remove the two center pouches if you need more room. Its thin, sleek design also makes it versatile enough to use as a clutch. Made of red, white and navy plaid textured nylon.

My Thoughts: I do a lot of traveling for both business & pleasure. I need beauty cases that function well and hold-up over time. I love this beauty organizer because it’s compact in it’s size and has a place for me to store my cosmetic brushes, liners, lip glosses, etc. and I love those two detachable center pouches. This beauty organizer holds all of my cosmetics that I will need while traveling and on top of that…it’s ultra cute too! Classy for sure!

COLORPROOF Hair Care Products


ColorProof Evolved Color Care Volume Envy Set ($64; Sold exclusively in salons and spas nationwide) includes SuperPlump Volumizing Shampoo and Condition and showcasing NEW TextureCharge Color Protect Texture + Finishing Spray.

This ultimate daily defense against dull, dry color-treated hair deeply and instantly quenches moisture-compromised hair to refuel and strengthen the hair. Containing the proprietary Advanced ColorLast System™ for maximum color and heat protection and a signature aromatherapy essence of goji berry and casaba melon, it weightlessly delivers youthful vitality, while preventing future dehydration and premature aging.

My Thoughts: I don’t color-treat my hair (yet) but I’ve been thinking about doing that since I have a few grays starting to pop in here and there. Regardless, I do have very dry hair from swimming and spending a lot of time out in the sun. I love how these hair products smell, fresh & clean with no perfume or chemical smells. Second, a little bit of product goes a long way. Finally, I have thick hair and even though my hair is thick, it lacks volume and these products are definitely helping with that!

Well…there you have it! Two great last-minute beauty gift ideas for Christmas 2015. Happy Holidays!

    Gifts for my daughter and me. That hair set would be great for us both. I like that it gives volume even to your thick hair. That can be hard to find, especially in a gentle product for color.

  2. Jo-Ann Brightman says:

    These are both great beauty items, not just as gifts, But for me to use too. I love the compactness of the organizer and I can use something to help my hair.

  3. Joanne Gregory says:

    And two great last minute gifts they are! I have thin, color treated hair and this looks like it was made for me. The cosmetics case is very nice, too, and I also do a lot of traveling. I have to replace mine every year or two. Love plaid and I would love it if someone gifted me with this one!!
