The smell of cinnamon, chai and crispy apples is in the air, and it is still chilly enough to not remind me that Australia is heading towards summer. It’s that time of year again, Christmas is coming with family, holidays and new beginnings.
Here are a few suggestions to make the ladies (and men?) in your life smile a little.
This limited edition palette is a cute nifty little thing especially for someone just starting out their makeup collection. It contains 15 matte, satin and shimmer eyeshadows along with a full size mascara. Too Face actually came out with many lovely holiday palettes, but I particularly like this one because it’s simple and the shadows are soft and pigmented.
Despite the controversy surrounding NARS collaboration with Guy Bourdin, there are some lovely sets released just in time for the holidays. Here is an easy way to delve into Nar’s award winning lip pencils with an offering of five minis (shades ranging from plummy nudes to a vampy red) held in an embellished pouch.
A chic staple for the makeup lover and a bargain for a set of five brushes. The mini collection is just as good and durable as their permanent brush range and comes in a travel case which would look pretty sitting under a tree.
AUD$115 (although there is also a travel set of 8 brushes for $210)
A decadent mini collection of Laura Mercier’s four lightweight body creams. Gift all four or break it up, you can choose from Almond Coconut Milk, Ambre Vanille, Fresh Fig or Creame de Pistache. Lovely wether you’re in the winter or summery months.
So lovelies, what do you have on your wishlist this year? And are you being good and doing shopping early or bad and leaving it last minute? 😉
