Christmas Beauty Gift Guide - €30+


I'm kinda delighted with myself right now it has to be said - only the 7th of December and I have almost all of my Christmas shopping done. Unheard of! If you are heading out shopping this weekend though, here are some of the things that have caught my eye, beauty-wise, out and about in the shops and online. This guide is for the lucky mammies, sisters, friends, aunties, sisters-in-law, etc. that you may have a little more to spend on :-) 

Sometimes with beauty gift sets you get a couple of dud items you're not bothered with. Not the case here as far as I'm concerned - this set is all killer and no filler, containing They're Real Mascara, the Porefessional Primer and High Beam (all full size) along with a mini Coralista Ultra Plush Lip Gloss. Benefit always do gifts well but they've outdone themselves this year with this reusable tea-caddy style tin packaging. 

Beauty Junkies need no introduction to these excellent-quality brushes. Anyone who loves make up or who's just getting started with make up would love to find this set in their stocking. 

It might seem a bit crazy to buy someone a single eyeshadow as a present, and especially crazy to spend €44.00 on one eyeshadow (I still haven't brought myself to do it). However, if you're buying for a bonafide beauty obsessive, they will absolutely appreciate one of these beauties. 

Nothing like some luxe new make up at Christmas and this compact is totally gorgeous. The highlighter is definitely on the glittery side but if you can't wear glitter at Christmas, when can you? I plan on plastering it all over my face. 

If you were to buy the products in this set separately, they would set you back €94 so this set is actually great value if you're in the market for some spendy face masks. Glamglow has a bit of a cult following at this stage and this would be a perfect gift  for a friend or sister who is serious about their skin care. 

Bliss body butters are probably my favourite body moisturisers of all time - they sink in so quickly with no tackiness whatsoever and they smell amazing. The blood orange and white pepper scent contained in this set is the best one I think - Christmassy and wintery but so refreshing at the same time. 

This beautifully packaged set contains Nuxe's stand out product Huile Prodigieuse as well as full size Creme Prodigieuse eye and face cream. Deadly value, and these products will see your giftee's skin through the trials of winter. 

I don't know any woman who wouldn't like to receive a little (or large!) black and cream box from Jo Malone this Christmas - there's a reason why there's a never-ending queue of men at the counter in BT on Christmas Eve. You could pretty much substitute any Jo Malone product here!

Just one from a great range of sets Clarins have out this year, this contains Hydra Quench Cream (50ml), Hydra Quench Intensive Serum (15ml), and Hydra Quench Cream-Mask (15ml) in a classy looking cosmetic bag. 

How are you getting on with your Christmas shopping? All done? Or are you a Last Minute Lizzy like I usually am?
