Christmas is just around the corner and along with cosy nights in and fairy lights the season brings limited edition beauty products and gift sets. Although you may have written your wish list weeks ago, or perhaps you are leaving it to the last minute, beauty sets make for excellent gifts for loved ones or treats to yourself.
Every year Chanel create a limited edition Christmas Make up and Skin care range. This year, like every year, was no disappointment. From deep red lipsticks to shimmer cream eye shadows, the collection is more than enough to create the perfect Christmas party look. My personal favourite product has to be the ‘CHANEL LE TOP COAT LAME ROUGE NOIR’. This sparkly nail topcoat has gold lame shimmers in a transparent formula. Alternatively you could layer the up to create a truly sparkling effect. The limited-edition product pays tribute to the classic ‘LE VERNIS Rouge Noir Nail Polish’, a truly traditional Chanel product. Coming in at £18 it’s the perfect stocking filler or secret Santa gift for a loved one that just wants to shine this coming season.
2015 marks the twenty-year anniversary of Liz Earle skincare. This Christmas, in celebration of the season and the anniversary, Liz Earle have put together beautiful boxes of the very best skincare products. The Sparkling Skin Duo would be perfect for someone just starting develop a skincare regime. The box (which costs £28) includes a Cleanse and Polish face wash and a Skin Tonic.
Charlotte Tilbury is an amazing luxury beauty brand, perfect for gifting; namely because the packaging is so stunning you don’t even need to wrap the boxes! I personally love the Charlotte Tilbury lipsticks; this year the very talented make-up artist has brought out a set of three ‘mini lipstick charms’ featuring the three most popular shades ‘Penelope Pink’, ‘Bitch Perfect’ and ‘So Marilyn’. Mini lipsticks are great for travelling or on-the-go handbag make up for when you’re running errands and Christmas shopping!
American make-up brand Tarte Cosmetics are best known for their range of Amazonian Clay blushes. This Christmas you can buy a set of three blushes including some of the most well known shades; ‘sincere’ (golden mauve), ‘supreme’ (melon), ‘surprised’ (cool rose), ‘stellar’ (peachy pink). Rosy blushes are perfect at Christmas for creating a natural cheek tint.
The Body Shop is my go-to shop at Christmas. The sets curated by the ‘naturally inspired’ beauty and cosmetic brand make for fantastic presents. My favourite winter scent has to be Frosted Plum. Luckily for us that are a little bit lazy when it comes to wrapping presents the Body Shop have kindly put together Christmas selection boxes and baubles inspired by specific winter scents.
Comment below if you have a favourite beauty brand at Christmas time, I love finding out about new limited edition ranges, especially when they are inspired by the best time of year! Merry Christmas!
