Happy Holidays, Influensters!
We're bringing you our editors' top picks for the gifts they're putting on their own wishlists this year. Our Social Media Manager, Jess, is here to take you on a tour of her dream list. Spoiler alert: get ready for a lot of millennial pink.
Edited to add a note from the author: At the time we published this, we did not know that ColourPop was going to RESTOCK THEIR DISNEY PRINCESS COLLECTION THIS FRIDAY! Basically: It's a holiday miracle! Thank you ColourPop!
1. Glitter Gang Buttercup Blow Dryer Value Kit ($172 at SEPHORA, 4% CashBack)
"I'm growing my hair out, and I recently had to say good-bye to a $14 blow dryer that's been with me for many years, due to a small "why is there so much smoke coming out of this" issue. These blow dryers are a big step up, and they're covered in glitter (bonus), AND it comes with some other amazing dry bar products. PLUS it's at SEPHORA, which means I can rack up those VIB points, and my Influenster CashBack total!"
"Gardenia is by far my favorite scent; I grab any and all candles, perfumes, soaps, lotions, you name it, I can find, and this perfume is excellent. I am Kardash Trash (TM), so I was inclined to like this, keep it up Kim! You're doing amazing, sweetie."
3. Fountain of Truth Beauty: The Whole Truth Gift Set ($250 at Fountain of Truth) (at Fountain of Truth)
"I've tried one item (the Honey Glow Mask) from this clean beauty line by Giuliana Rancic, and I must say: it's excellent. That being said: I'm obsessed with the rose gold, retro inspired packaging, and I need this for my vanity. Again, excellent product, love that it's clean: thank you for making it pink, one of everything please!"
4. Glossier Flavored Balm Dot Com Trio ($30 at Glossier.com)
"Has my obsession with these reached an unhealthy level? Yes. Did I already buy myself a set on Black Friday? You betcha. Is this pricey for a lip balm? Sure. Is it worth it? Absolutely. Do I really need three more? With every fiber of my being. If anyone is looking for a present for me, Cherry is my fave, but I just tried Rose for the first time and I'm feeling it!"
5. Rifle Paper Co. Linen 2019 Planner ($24 at Anthropologie, 1% CashBack)
"I'm a full blown Monica Gellar / Hermione Granger style nerd. I love an agenda, I need a paper one, I can't fully commit to the phone calendar. I'm also obsessed with Rifle Paper Co. AND the discovery that I can use Influenster CashBack at Anthropologie was a very happy one!"
6. Fenty Beauty Killawatt Freestyle Highlighter ($34 at SEPHORA, 4% CashBack)
"I was not a highlighter girl until 2018, but I am now a devotee. I regret all the time I spent with boring, not-even-visible-from-space cheekbones! 2018 was also the year a lot of us discovered Fenty, and fell even more in love with Queen RiRi. I've felt the texture of this highlighter, and it truly is buttery perfection."
7. Benefit Cosmetics Blush Bar Cheek Palette ($58 on ULTA, 3% Influenster CashBack)
"I love this palette! I like to mix it up, so I like that you get a bunch of options to choose from, and the selection is amazing: I love blushes and bronzers. Also. It's ballerina themed. Done. "
8. ColourPop Disney Designer Crème Lux Lipstick in Snow White ($7 at ColourPop)
EDITED TO ADD: "Holiday dreams really do come true!"
9. Boy Bye Mug ($10 at Urban Outfitters, 1% Influenster CashBack)
"I could live in an Urban Outfitters and be the happiest girl in the world. I love everything: but this Boy Bye mug would truly be the best way to describe my attitude until I've had at least two cups of coffee in the morning. I was also so excited to find out that I can earn CashBack for shopping there!"
10. Saturday Skin Rise + Shine Gentle Cleanser ($26 at SEPHORA, 4% CashBack)
"I am on the quest to find the perfect cleanser, and I haven't nailed it quite yet. I have high hopes for this Saturday Skin cleanser based on the Influenster reviews, and the fact that I am completely obsessed with their featherweight moisturizer!"
Now it's your turn: what are you hoping for this year? Leave a comment and let us know!
