Clarins eyeshadows are amazing quality and what a better reason than to buy this palette as a gift for someone this Christmas. There are such beautiful colours in here that go together so well, with mostly shimmers and some mattes how can you go wrong? Everyone loves a neutral toned palette.
2. Clinique Great Skin Home and Away
This Clinique skin care gift is perfect. You get the full size 3-step (which is amazing in itself), then you also get a travel size 3-step. The perfect gift for anyone that travels a fair bit or stays at other people’s houses quite a lot. It all comes in a mesh zipper bag too to keep it all together.
3. Liz Earle Botanical Skin Saviours
My love for Liz Earle skincare is no secret, so how could I leave it out of my beauty gift guide? This Botanical Skin Saviours set would be perfect for anyone who loves their skincare or who is just getting into caring for their skin. You get an 100ml Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser, 2 Muslin Cloths, 50ml Instant Boost Skin Tonic, 50ml Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion and 15ml Skin Repair Moisturiser. That kit will last them quite a while and by then they’ll have fallen in love with it!
4. Benefit Beauty Bonbons
Now lets be honest, all the Benefit beauty gift sets are amazing. I’m including this one in my gift guide because it is my favourite! The high-end gifts give people chance to try minis of products before going on to buy them themselves. What I like about this gift set is that you get minis of They’re Real and the Porefessional and full sizes of High Beam, Ultra Plush Lipgloss in Hoola and Hoola bronzer. That gives them a mix at the fraction of the price you would’ve spent putting it all together yourself.
5. Essie Icon 2014 Collection
Every girl I know loves painting their nails and this is the cutest nail gift set I could find. I’ve never owned an Essie polish myself, but hearing they’re amazing, this means they would obviously make an amazing gift too! Essie’s icons altogether in a gift set for under £15, whoever you’re buying a gift for will love you.
I chose to include this in my gift guide because if someone bought me a Tom Ford lipstick I think I’d collapse. Maybe not that drastic but they’re so luxurious, possibly the most luxurious lipstick to be owned and I think anyone would be pretty pleased with receiving one of these in their stocking!
