Christmas Beauty Gifts 2014

Are you in a Christmas panic?  Have you some last minute gifts to buy? I always think I am finished but then realise I am missing something.  Here are some of the products I picked up as gifts this Christmas.

Glamglow - Gift Sexy.  I love Glamglow this kit contains a full size Thirsty mud along with a sample size Youth Mud and Super Mud.  I have tried the Super Mud and really loved it.  This is a perfect gift for the skin care lover in your life although be warned the pots are tiny (but effective).

This Works Sleeping Partners Set:  This Works could possibly be a really cocky name for a brand except that the products really do work, they are simply packaged, no frills.  This Works dont need fancy or frills its simple ...their products work.  Fans of the brand include Victoria Beckham and if its OK for the Beckham household its OK for me.
The Sleeping Partners Set contains a full size Deep Sleep Night Oil and a full sized Deep Sleep Pillow Spray - since I haven't been sleeping that well lately I am very tempted to keep this for myself. 
I picked up the Too Faced Everything Nice Palette in Debenhams Belfast - we used to have a Too Faced counter in Boots Liffey Valley but that is no more - I found a treasure trove of unusual brands like Too Faced and Cargo tucked away at the back of the makeup hall.  I have been eyeing the Everything Nice Palette online and I wasn't even aware it was available this side of the Atlantic so I did a very happy dance when I saw it.  The Palette is a beauty lovers dream, it contains 20 eye shadows, 2 blush, 1 bronzer, 1 highlighter a mini mascara and a pink sparkly makeup bag.

 The palette has a lovely mix of neutrals and along the bottom has a row of jewel tones - I will hold my hands up this is a self gift.
 Smashbox On the Rocks - Oh Smashbox eye shadows how I love you, you are soft, buttery and pigmented and probably my favourite eye shadows of all.  Smashbox On the Rocks is a perfect mix of 12 neutral and jewel tones.  Sometimes big kits like the Too Faced Everything Nice can be a bit intimidating so smaller kits can make a perfect option.  As I have said before Smashbox are my Holy Grail eye shadows their are amazing quality - any Smashbox palette is a wonderful addition to any makeup collection.

 Nars Digital World Lip Pencil Coffret: The only reason I hadn't picked up Nars Satin Lip Pencil in Yu is because you have to sharpen it - funny I know but I think sharpening uses up products. 
The Digital World set contains the shades
  • Satin Lip Pencil Torres Del Paine
  • Satin Lip Pencil Descanso
  • Satin Lip Pencil Yu
  • Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Iberico
  • Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Cruella 
  • You could give the whole set as a gift or you could break the set up (maybe keeping one or two for yourself).  The Digital World lip set is exclusive to Space NK.

    Stila have some fantastic gift sets this Christmas, they have teamed up with US jewellery company Baublebar to create gifts which contain the best of Stila products as well as jewellery and accessories.  As you know I love Stila so my only self gifting problem is I already have a lot of the products, I suppose this will make parting with the gifts easier (Stila products are like my children).
