Big Hair Blowout Kit by Drybar

Product

Every woman wants shiny, smooth hair, and a great hair dryer is a must-have to achieve it. The Buttercup Blow Dryer by Drybar is the ultimate blow drying tool and makes a great gift! It’s powerful (with an 1875-watt motor), lightweight, and works incredibly well. Ionic technology increases shine and reduces frizz while drying hair up to 20% faster than other professional dryers. It features three temperatures, two speed settings, and a “cool shot” button. Oh, and the color? The bright yellow might be the cheeriest and most welcoming thing you see every morning!

We think the holiday kits by Drybar are a really fun way to gift hair dryers to the ones you love! The Big Hair Blowout Kit is a limited edition set, and includes everything you need for ultimate hair volume and lift. It includes their signature Buttercup Blow Dryer, the Full Pint Medium Round Brush, Triple Sec 3-in-1 Texturizer, Southern Belle Volumizing Mousse, and High Tops Self Grip Rollers. Everything is packaged in a ready-to-give box and is a fantastic value!

Looking for something a little different? No worries! Drybar has many sets available, including a sweet little travel kit! Their assortment of kits and bundles include tools, dryers, products, and more. Drybar is the perfect way to give the gift of great hair days all year long!


Perfect gift for someone who wants to achieve salon caliber hair in the comfort of her own home!

About Drybar

Drybar originated as a chain of salons that focused on providing hair styling services and is based on the simple concept of focusing on one thing and being the best at it: blowouts. CEO Alli Webb spent several years developing a complete line of products after not finding what she needed to meet very specific styling needs. In 2013, Drybar launched a line of products, including brushes, blow dryers, sprays, and creams. Buttercup, the official blow dryer used at Drybar, is the Drybar mascot.

With their deliciously scented palettes and lip products, these whimsical gift sets look and smell good enough to eat. The makeup options available in these sets make the perfect gift for both beginner and experienced makeup lovers alike. Our favorites in this amazing Holiday Collection are:

The Grand Hotel Café contains 3 coffee scented palettes – Peppermint Mocha, Gingerbread Coffee, and Eggnog Latte. With a total of 18 beautiful, ultra-pigmented and blendable eyeshadows, 2 blushes and 1 bronzer, this set has you covered. The mix of shimmery and matte colors gives these yummy scented palettes versatility, and their compact size makes them great for travel. The Grand Hotel Café also contains a deluxe sized Better Than Sex Mascara to finish your look with long, luscious lashes.

Inside the Merry Macarons, you’ll find 12 beautiful, vanilla-scented shadows and a deluxe sized Better Than Sex mascara. With both shimmers and mattes in the eyeshadow palette, you’ll be able to create an endless amount of makeup looks with the neutral and plum-toned shades, perfect for the holiday season. Use the shimmery black to create a smokey party look for any festive occasion.

The Chocolate Shop features cocoa-infused products including an eyeshadow palette with 21 eyeshadows, a Luminizer in Inner Light, a Chocolate Soleil Bronzer, and a Chocolate Covered Strawberry blush. It also contains deluxe sized Shadow Insurance eye shadow primer, the Better Than Sex mascara, and a Melted Chocolate Lipstick to complete your makeup look. 

The eye shadow palette features both matte and shimmer shadows, along with the highlighter, bronzer, and blush. With plenty of warm, neutral, and cool toned shades to choose from, this palette will be a go-to for any makeup lover. Use the soft, muted shades for an understated, natural look, or go super glam and festive with the pops of color.

Naughty Kisses & Sweet Cheeks is a trio of lip and cheek combos, making it three gifts in one! Each set comes with a Lip Injection Gloss and coordinating blush for any skin tone, a clear gloss with a fuchsia blush, peach gloss with a peachy/nude blush, and a lilac gloss with a mauve-toned blush.

Use the GloPRO MicroStimulation Face Tool to reverse the look of aging and enhance the skin’s natural regenerative process, making skin firmer, smoother, and younger looking. Using red LED and VibroTactile Stimulation technology, the GloPRO will boost collagen production and induce micro-rejuvenation deep within the skin. 

Use this with the Hydra GLO serum, or any other antiaging serums and creams. The GloPRO will give maximum absorption into the skin, enhancing the benefits of the serum’s skin-restoring ingredients.


Perfect gift for those looking to begin or expand their makeup collection!

Product

Give the gift of a beautiful complexion using Veil Cosmetics Sunset Light Primer, Sunset Skin Foundation and Complexion Fix. This powerful trio will give the look of flawless, doll like skin with the benefits of feeling lightweight and hydrating to the skin.

Sunset Light Primer is a unique, 3-in-1 product that can be used as a primer, serum and mixing base depending on your needs and preferences. As a primer, this water-based formula can be used to achieve smooth, supple skin, creating the perfect canvas to apply your foundation. It adds longevity to your makeup and helps it stay looking as if you just applied it. It’s lightweight consistency allows your skin to breathe while still giving your foundation HD quality and the ultimate staying power.

As a serum, Sunset Light uses powerful botanicals like White Water Lily to brighten the skin, while Cinnamon Bark Extract plumps and smooths. The anti-aging peptides keep your skin looking young and radiant, creating the perfect base for your makeup. Sodium Hyaluronate will effectively help your skin retain moisture and stay hydrated, keeping your skin smooth and nourished.

As a mixing base, Sunset Light can be added to Complexion Fix to create a CC cream, which offers more coverage than a tinted moisturizer, but less coverage than foundation— perfect for days when you want a little more than just bare skin. You can add Sunset Light to any foundation or cream product to sheer it out and give a lighter, smoother product.

Sunset Skin Foundation offers sheer to medium coverage for a lightweight, oil free foundation that works on all skin types. The airy, whipped formula gives the skin a hydrating, refreshing boost while giving the skin a flawless finish. There are 4 color categories to choose from— light, medium, porcelain and tan— all with warm, neutral and cool toned shade options, so you’re sure to find a perfect match for your skin.

Complexion Fix is a highlighter and corrector that combines skincare and color science. Use Complexion Fix to hide imperfections like under eye circles, dark spots and uneven skin tone. This all over face pen will help brighten the complexion while offering buildable coverage to give you blemish free, porcelain looking skin.

 


Perfect gift for anyone who loves weightless foundation and wants flawless looking skin!
