Right, so Christmas is basically here seeing as most major holidays are now out of the way and have paved a merry little path to the best time of year. Therefore it is totally acceptable to be trawling the internet looking at every Christmas beauty gift set there is available to man (and more importantly woman). So here are the ones at the top of my neverending wishlist….
Jo Malone Advent Calendar
This is the absolute epitamy of advent calendars. The one to rule them all. The chosen one. Forget your average cheap chocolate-filled Christmas countdown, we are in the beauty age and that means mini colognes and creams to brighten up the 24 exciting days before the 25th. A handful of the treats inside are:
- Lime Basil & Mandarin 9ml Cologne
- Pomegranate Noir 9ml Cologne
- Red Roses 9ml Cologne
- English Pear & Freesia 9ml Cologne
- Blackberry & Bay 9ml Cologne
- Wood Sage & Sea Salt 9ml Cologne
- Orange Blossom Body Crème
- Lime Basil & Mandarin Body Crème
- Velvet Rose & Oud 9ml Cologne Intense
- Dark Amber & Ginger Lily 9ml Cologne Intense
You even get a full size Pomegranate Noir Body Crème on the last day! I doubt I will be lucky enough for some sucker to buy this for me but a girl can dream.
These beautiful NARS gift sets are far more achievable and look divine. The packaging makes me weak at the knees and this set in nude will be perfect for everyday wear. Even though the lip liner and pencil are only minis the trio is still a steal for only £29. Please please please Santa.
Okay fine, so obviously this is within the category of ‘my wildest dreams’. All ten of the beautiful shades of her K.I.S.S.I.N.G collection. I prefer these to the matte equivalent and from Nude Kate to Night Crimson this is lipstick perfection in every way. This set is only truly worth it if you love every colour because the individual lipsticks work out as the exact same price as the set, but it’s still a nice idea.
This MAC eye set contains Blacktrack Fluidliner, Dangerous Cuvee Paint Pot, False Black False Lash mascara and a limited edition double ended eyeliner and eyeshadow brush. Everything you need to create an amazing smoky eye look perfect for New Years Eve. I’m not huge on the make-up bag that comes with this set but the colours MAC have chosen for Christmas this year are so much more than the traditional red, white and green so infinite props to them.
I would be absolutely over-the-moon with unwrapping even one of these sets comes Christmas day and hope it’s some inspiration to put on your wish list too!
