‘Tis the Season of Gift Cards? Best of Splurge-Worthy Beauty Products

Earlier this season, I posted several gift guides featuring my favorites to give and receive. I’ve received several questions from readers about what they should splurge on with their holiday gift cards, and I thought I’d highlight my lists of top picks for those of you looking for something special to give yourself this year–all but the holiday 2014 list feature permanent products. πŸ™‚

For more recommendations, I suggest browsing my past reviews by rating or seeing what products I’ve given the Temptalia Recommends designation. For a list of all my favorites, see the Editor’s Choice Awards.
