Luxe Beauty Gifts Worth Lusting For

While there is no shortage of amazing, affordable beauty gifts to give this season, sometimes it's more fun to think about those wild and crazy wish-list items. As a kid, wasn't the actual daydreaming about what could happen so much more fun than the actual reality of receiving?

Who knows, maybe Santa thinks you've been really good this year. They don't call it a Christmas miracle for nothing. Click through to check out this year's crop of big ticket beauty items and get ready to start coveting.
