Interview: Star Magazine’s Holiday Gift Guide with Star Magazine’s Beauty and Fashion Director Cheryl Kramer Kaye

Star magazine’s beauty and fashion director Cheryl Kramer Kaye joined me once again, this time to give us a sneak peek at Star magazine’s holiday gift guide! Cheryl dished on the hottest beauty products, the top fashion must haves, fun stocking stuffers and much more!






Candace Rose: With the holidays officially upon us, what are some ideas for anyone on your list?

Cheryl Kramer Kaye: “Even if you can’t splurge on a spa trip to the south of France right now, you can still bring that Provence style pampering home with L’Occitane gift sets. They have a bunch of great sets coming out, but one of my favorites is the Shea Embrace because it have five of their famous shea butter body products including their hand cream, which I am completely obsessed with right now. And that kit is $68. They have another great one called the Divine gift set and that gives you the ultimate gift of youth. It has three anti-aging products, each of them is formulated with the immortal essential oils and what those do is give your skin a ton of moisture and beautiful youthful glow. And that kit is $170. Both of the kits are available at L’Occitane boutiques and”


Candace Rose: Are there any gift ideas for the fashion lover?

Cheryl Kramer Kaye: “Oh sure. For fashion lovers, I have the ultimate gift for the fashionista- it is the Extreme Steam fabric steamer from CONAIR. And this one is so cool because it’s basically like having a dry cleaner at your house. It gets rid of wrinkles, it gets rid of odors. The way it works is that it cranks out continuous steam that is actually 30-40% hotter than what you get with a conventional iron, so you’re getting that super power steamer at home. The full size is $10o, and the handheld is about $45, and both of those are available at

I’ve also got some fabulous stocking stuffers from CoverGirl. The first one I want to tell you about is a real beauty breakthrough, it is called the Clump Crusher mascara, and here’s how it works- it has a curved brush so that you can get really close to your lash line and get lots of volume, but it also has bristles that are very tightly packed together. So the bristles are too close together for the clump to even form, and so the clumps don’t get on your lashes either. You can give this one 30 strokes and you’re never going to see a clump. This one is amazing, and it’s only $7.



And CoverGirl has also come out with a great line of nail gloss. There is such a great range of fun, bright colors, but my favorite thing about them is that they have such a nice high shine, that you don’t need to use a top coat so you get to save a step. And those are $5.49. And both of the CoverGirl products are available at Walmart and”
