Agghhhhh it’s that time again! I’m so excited, I know loads of people aren’t big on Christmas but I just love it. It’s a real fun, cosy, warm the feet by the fire, family focussed time of year. One big part of course is the gifts! Every year I look forward to seeing everything that’s new in beauty land for Christmas and bringing you my pick of the Christmas beauty gifts. I’ll start at the higher end of the budgets this week and work towards the last minute stocking fillers. Below are my picks of the gifts for €50 or under…
Benefit Real Cheeky Party Christmas Gift Set (€43) - I got last years version for Christmas and I loved it. My favourite Benefit product is definitely their boxed blushes and with this handy set you can get five of their top blushes (Sugarbomb, Dandelion, Hoola, Coralista and Rockateur) for just over the price of one. This set also contains a mini They’re Real Liner and Mascara and a small Watts Up Highlighter. You can pick this one up at any Benefit counter or online from Debenhams.
Champneys Relaxation Hamper (€42) – I’m including this one for two reasons the first being how darn cute it is and the second that it is Boots Star Gift of the week until Thursday. Champney’s have repackaged their products and they’re looking snazzy. This super little hamper contains a mix of body products, a relaxing candle and a cosy pair of socks. A perfect Christmas gift and you can re-use the cute hamper. This is on offer here until Thursday 12 so be quick!
Stila Trust in Love Gift Set (€42) - The Stila Christmas collection is so pretty this year! This beautiful envelope style palette contains 12 gorgeous eyeshadows ranging from pretty neutrals to more smoky shades. This set also contains one of Stilas famous lip glazes and a mascara. It’s a real classy pick. You can order this from Feel Unique here.
Soap and Glory Well I’ll Be Glammed Set (€58) - OK so this one is a teeny bit over budget but I think it’s worth it! Soap and Glory always knock it out of the park each Christmas and some of their packaging this year is just fab. This set contains some of Soap and Glorys bestselling makeup products including their Archery pencil, Thick and Fast mascara and Sexy Mother Pucker Glosses. It also a blush, bronzer, eyeshadow set and three brushes. I’d keep an eye on this one for a future Star Gift!
Nima Brush The Girls on Tour Set (€55) - Sorry another slightly over budget! I need this brush set because it’s in my absolute favourite colour but also because Irish brand Nima Brush is just fab. I’ve a few different Nima Brushes and I love them, they’re great quality and pretty to boot! This set contains seven eye and face brushes in a gorgeous turquoise clutch. You can order online here.
NUXE Prodigieux Le Parfum Gift Set (€49.25) – Ok this is definitely a biased pick from me! The Prodigieux smell is one of my favourite all time smells. I’ve been obsessed with this perfume since it launched and have been through two bottles already. This set contains a full size perfume and a Prodigieux candle. I’m kind of afraid I’ll get addicted to the candles now! You can order this from Cloud 10 beauty here.
So these are my top picks around the €50 mark. I’d be happy to see any of these under the tree on Christmas morning! For now you’ll just find me in the corner doing this…
