Christmas Gifts for Beauty Lovers

I've never been one to pay much attention to the hundreds of Christmas gift sets available each year. But this year, for some reason, I've been way more excited about beauty than usual. So here's a list of gift sets and products I've been lusting after while scrolling through pages and pages of beauty websites, and trust me, I would love to treat myself to these come Christmas time although I'm not sure that would be too great for my bank account...

Becca Lit-From-Within Kit
I've always wanted to try Becca products, especially after viewing many of The Anna Edit's YouTube videos where she often raves about the pressed highlighter. I'm always looking for ways to inject more glow and luminosity to my face, so this seems like the perfect option to try, especially because it's relatively affordable compared to the full-sized products. Sephora has some other kits available, not to mention a gorgeous limited edition Christmas palette which is very expensive but so pretty.

NARS The Veil Cheek Palette
Mecca have some hella nice holiday packaging at the moment, and even though I'm yet to purchase any sets from there yet, I do have my eye on this gorgeous looking cheek palette which has a contour shade, highlight and blush shade. The blush looks ultra bright and pigmented but I have a feeling it will look really wearable on the cheeks, and I'm lacking in a nice bronzer or contour shade at the moment so this palette would come in handy. There is a part of me that feels a bit guilty for dropping so much cash on one product, but we'll see!

Stila Written in the Stars Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Set
Sophie actually gave me one of these shadows in the shade Kitten Karma as she knows I've been lusting over them for ages. This set of three is such a good gift in my opinion, or if you've been wanting to try them yourself. Although I haven't tried out this eye shadow properly yet, I have swatched it on my hand, and seen how it looks on other people. These are ultra shimmery and so perfect for Christmas time, festive parties or New Years Eve. This set isn't too expensive either which is always good.

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette Beauty Glow
If you're looking for a palette that does it all, this is definitely it! It has three natural eyeshadow shades, a bronzer and highlighter, and two pretty blush shades. This would be especially great for travel because you have nearly everything you need in one place. Each shade is embossed with where to apply it which makes everything super easy. I also have my eye on the luxury palettes with four eyeshadow shades - so pretty!

Hair Heroes by Feelunique
Feel Unique have some really affordable Christmas sets at the moment and this hair one caught my attention, mainly because I love the Pureology shampoo and conditioner that's included. Although these are a mini travel size, this pack is great value for money considering Pureology products can be pretty expensive. This gift set also comes with a hair oil and hair ties, and would make a pretty good stocking filler I think!

Kiehl's Special Edition Ultra Facial Cream
Recently I tried the Kiehl's Ultra Facial Cream and I fell in love pretty much instantly. Many bloggers and YouTubers have raved about this in the past and I can certainly see why. Although we're coming into summer, I can see this would be a great moisturiser for winter, or if you have particularly dry skin. This makes my skin so glowy and continuously moisturised, even when I wake up the next day. It is a bit heavy at times, which is why I'll just be using in the evenings from now on. The Christmas edition would be a great gift for someone or even yourself! It's definitely a fool-proof moisturiser in my opinion.

I hope you enjoyed this post with some of my beauty recommendations/ideas. I thought it would be nice to do a little Christmas post a bit earlier so you have time to buy.
