I can't believe it's almost Christmas! Like many others, Christmas is my favourite time of year (along with Halloween) as its a great excuse for spending time with family and watching Christmas themed movies. It's also that time of year where you have to go shopping for all those near and dear - which can be quite a challenge, especially if you've left it a bit last minute. But fear not as I have gathered up all my favourite beauty products that I feel would make a perfect present for any beauty lovers out there.
Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette
I couldn't possibly have a beauty gift guide without including this incredible eyeshadow palette from Urban Decay. This palette is stunning. There is a whole variety of colours and they are so pigmented and pretty. This palette includes your neutrals, smokey colours and some brighter jewel tone shades to suit a day or night look. The palette includes a humongous mirror, eyeshadow brush and fancy packaging. This is without a doubt my favourite palette at the moment and it would honestly be a godsend to any makeup junkies out there. It currently retails for £42 which is quite a reasonable price for 20 eyeshadows.
Nars Virtual Domination Cheek Palette
This cheek palette has a lot of sparkly pinky shades that are perfect for Christmas. This is one of Nars' best seasonal palettes as it contains a mix of permanent and limited edition shades. The palette includes some blusher shades, contour & bronzer shades as well highlighting blush shades that would suit most skin tones. It costs £45 and it is still available to purchase at Space NK.
Benefit Skincare Gift Set
This is an amazing budget friendly gift set from Benefit. It includes 6 products for only £14.50! Benefit are renowned for their skincare products and this gift set would be perfect for those with dry/normal skin.
MAC Lipstick - Sin (Matte)
A gorgeous matte deep dark red from MAC. This is the most perfect 'fall' lipstick and is such a universally flattering colour. I like to wear this with a neutral or smokey eye and it goes with both looks so well. If you have a friend/sibling or family member that loves their lippies, this is hands down the best deep lipstick colour I've tried.
Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara Christmas Gift Set*
This is my favourite gift set from the list. It includes a mascara, eye liner pencil and cleanser and it is such great value for the quality. I've been using the mascara non-stop since I got it and I haven't seen my lashes look more long and voluminous as they do with this mascara. I will be doing a full in-depth review on this on my blog or YouTube channel as I'm so impressed with it. A definite must-have for mascara lovers!
Remember, these beauty products are only discounted for a limited time only so make the most of it and keep your eyes peeled!
I hope you all have an amazing Christmas day and pig out on all the trimmings. I should have a video up on YouTube before Christmas if everything goes to plan so I'll see you then.
