The beauty section of my blog is one of my favourites, I’m a total girly girl and I love makeup, skincare and everything in between, but as a mum of three, I just simply don’t have the money to buy myself most of the things I see and want.
For this reason, I tend to ask for beauty bits for Christmas. Boots is my favourite shop, and I’ve been adding things from there to my Christmas wish list over the past few weeks so I thought I would share them with you today…
I absolutely adore this perfume. I always have around five fragrances on the go at any one time, and this one has just recently run out. It’s the perfect date night scent, as it’s quite dark and sultry, and makes me feel sexy and confident. I love that the perfume gift sets at Christmas are often the same price as the fragrance on its own, as it always looks nicer to give and receive a set. The body lotion looks really nice as well!
I am a huge fan of Ted Baker make up brushes since I received them in a gift set last Christmas. They’ve lasted really well, but it’s always nice to get some new brushes and the gift set this year looks amazing. The four brushes come with a decorative porcelain brush holder, which will look so pretty on the dressing table/desk that I still need to set up in our bedroom.
I love No7, both for their makeup and their skincare range. They have a huge range of gift sets available this Christmas, and I have my eye on the Ready for Radiance set as it features the eyeshadow palette I have, but the one I have on my list is this skincare collection as it includes their brilliant Protect & Perfect Advanced range, with the replenishing facial oil I use every night before going to sleep.
I heard about this a while back and I reallllly want it! It’s the lazy girls friend when it comes to cleaning your makeup brushes. I hate how much faff cleaning brushes can be and I don’t do it nearly as often as I should, but this cleaner not only removes the dirt from the brushes, it also dries them back off too meaning you can be back applying makeup within seconds!
I’ve mentioned this before as I bought it for myself recently, but I would be happy to receive it as a gift at Christmas. The pillow mist is amazing at helping me switch off and go to sleep, and this gift set including an eye mask and temple balm is only £1.50 more than the mist on its own.
I haven’t used benefit in years, but I always used to love the High Beam highlighter. They have a wide selection of gift sets available but this one caught my eye as not only does it contain a high beam mini, it also has three full size products, one of which is the Hoola Bronzer.
I have been wanting to try Smashbox’s primer for ages. This gift set, made up of miniatures of their bestselling products, looks like the perfect kit to give it a go.
What’s on your beauty Christmas wish list this year?
