Well I’m officially allowed use the C word now as Christmas is next month! One of my favourite things at Christmas (apart from the food) is checking out all the new beauty gifts available. I’ve had a good hunt around to pick some of my favourite gifts for the beauty lover in your life that cost €50 or under.
NARS Laser Cut Eye Lip and Cheek Palette (€45) - The Nars Christmas Palettes are very pretty indeed. This set is so cute, it contains three neutral shadows, a coral toned blush,bronzer and a lip gloss. It’s all in such a pretty compact as well. You can get this palette from Brown Thomas.
Laura Mercier Bath and Body Duet Golden Honey Musk (€50) - Oh my god this stuff smells amazing and it’s so pretty. The set contains a bath and body cream and it comes with a cute little honey stirrer to add the product to your bath. This is a great gift for any woman who enjoys a luxurious bathtime.
Benefit Cheek Sweet Spot Box O’Blushes Set (€35) – I love Benefit blushers, Coralista has to be my absolute favourite. For the first time ever Benefit have put their famous box of blushers in a set for Christmas. The set contains six of Benefits most popular blushes Dandelion, Sugarbomb, Coralista, Bella Bamba, Rockateur and Hoola Bronzer. It also has a small pot of the Watts Up highlighter. I really want this set!
Origins Best of Both Worlds Gift Set (€49.50) - this set is normally €55 but is currently on sale in Arnotts for €49.50 so it’s going on the list! I’m a big skincare fan and I love the look of this. It contains some of Origins best-selling products including the High Potency Night-A-Mins Mineral-Enriched Renewal Cream (50ml), GinZing Moisturiser (30ml), GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream (5ml) and Drink Up Intensive Overnight Mask, (50ml). All in a cute cosmetic bag for the skincare lover in your life.
Urban Decay Vice 3 Palette (€48) - I certainly don’t need another eyeshadow palette in my life but if somebody wants to give me one as I gift I can’t say no! I have the Vice 2 palette and I love it and Vice 3 looks equally as good. Urban Decay shadows are great quality and so strongly pigmented, you can’t go wrong with their palettes.
Elemis Beauty Wonders Set for Normal/Dry skin (€49) - Well it wouldn’t be a gift list without something from Elemis as I’m a big fan! This set contains a Hydra Boost Day Cream (50ml full size), Hydra Nourish Night Cream (20m), Pro Collagen Cleansing Balm (20g) and Rehydrating Ginseng Toner (50ml). I love the sound of this, they also have a version for normal/combination skin as well.
So there you have my top gift picks for under €50. There were probably a million more I could add to the list but I better stop now! Keep an eye out for my under €25 gifts next week. If you can’t wait to Christmas for a treat you can enter my competition to win a No7 Advent Calendar here.
