Cate McNabb A Golden Affair Set
Cate McNabb Cosmetics, certified cruelty-free, paraben-free, and socially conscious luxury cosmetics line, is excited to launch their first 2014 Holiday Collection! Posh Beauty Blog picks: A Golden Affair! This group of Glitz and Glamour is dazzling to the tune of warm rich golds and a daring pop of plum. Easily swept across the eye, each of these shades wears marvelously alone, but pair two or more together and the result is bold and polished. Apply the newest color, Shiraz, in the crease to sculpt and dramatize, or apply all over with a bit of WHIPPED CREAM for an inside-corner highlight to create freshness and pop! Whatever your desired look, gild your eyes in gold this holiday season. Includes: So Cal Eyeshadow, Shiraz Eyeshadow, Sunrise Glow Blush, Gilded Lipgloss, Blood Orange Lipstick, Blush Brush, Eyeshadow Brush, and Eyeliner Brush ($75, Catemcnabbcosmetics.com).

Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Palette
This Holiday season, there are 3 Laura Mercier products that give back. 100 percent of the proceeds of the items go toward the Laura Mercier Ovarian Cancer Fund. Posh Beauty Blog pick: Laura Mercier Bonne Mine Palette. The palette was inspired by Laura's work with celebrity clients who wanted a universal compact that would "wake-up" their skin and give them an immediate healthy glow.

The scent is blood orange with spicy notes of cinnamon stick, nutmeg, and clove. The set includes: Artisan Soap (4.2oz), Soy Candle (60 hour burn) and a Reed Diffuser Kit ($78, Mscskincare.com).
Thesis Organic Makeup Remover
First, we are excited to apply all the gorgeous makeup, but at the end of the day it has to come off with minimum damage inflicted to the skin and maximum efficiency (some makeup can be rather pesky and difficult to wipe off). Thesis’ 100% organic Makeup Remover Rosemary + Citrus is the gentlest and most effective way to lift off all the makeup from face, eyes, and lips. It contains zero synthetic chemicals, preservatives or anything harsh and stripping – great stocking stuffer! ($19.95, Thesisbeauty.com)
Laura Geller Big Apple Beauty
A fabulous set of grab-and-go beauty essentials from Laura Geller. The set Includes:
- 0.25-oz The Real Deal Concealer
- 0.22-fl oz Light Beams Ultimate Shine Lip Gloss in Passion Fruit, a softly shimmering tawny pink shade
