BEAUTY | The Beauty Lover's Gift Guide

Leave a Comment

In the second instalment of my gift-guide series, I'll be showing you all of the gifts your beauty obsessive friend is going to love this holiday season.

At this time of year there are always limited edition sets, many of them being great value!! As was the case before, the gift ideas will be split in to Secret Santa, Steal and Splurge! In the post below, there will be something for everyone!

Secret Santa

Barry M Nail Paint - Ruby Red Slipper

I love this nail colour. It is truly Christmas in a bottle. The red glitter is so easy to apply (not like other glitters that require coats and coats and coats!) and it's so cheap too! Barry M are my go-to nail colours and there are always 3 for 2 offers on making them the perfect stocking stuffers! 

Kiko Milano Twin Stars Nail Lacquer and Lipstick 

These adorable little gift sets come in 4 different colour options and the packaging even allows you to hang it on a tree! Kiko is a relatively unknown but really fantastic brand. The products are all at a really accessible price point and such high quality. I've been really impressed with everything I've tried. 

Glitter Compact Mirror

I'm one of those beauty lovers who loves all the glitter! This mirror is cheap and cheerful and will do the job for any beauty addicts on the go. A little bit of bling never hurt any one!


Benefit Real Cheeky Party Kit

Whilst technically at a splurge price point (£29.50), this Real Cheeky Party kit is incredible value, including 5 of Benefit's 7 Box o' Powders which normally retail for £23.50 each. Also included are a travel size eyeliner, mascara and highlighter. Last year's equivalent FLEW off of the shelves so get your hands on this quick  - many places are already sold out. 

Make Up Revolution Brushes

Totally a dupe of the Real Techniques Bold Metals collection (that has a cult following), these brushes come in at less than half the price. Any basic girl (like me hehe) will adore the rose gold metallic collection and would be a useful addition to any one's beauty kit. Not sure which to get? You can never go wrong with a blush or a powder brush. The contour brush is quite innovative too!

Urban Decay Perversion Mascara

This is my go-to mascara of the moment. Perversion has it all and for a total steal you can get the travel size version! Mine has lasted me months and is showing no signs of running out or drying out.  


Urban Decay x Gwen Stefani Palette 

The beauty world has been buzzing about Gwen Stefani's Urban Decay collaboration since it was announced in September. All we've seen so far is the palette and it is gorgeous! With neutral shades as well as pops of colour, all 15 shadows are useable and are bound to be up to Urban Decay's normal mind-blowing standards. The palette is available to buy now!  

Kendall Jenner x Estee Lauder Lipstick

I've recently gotten my hands on the Pure Colour Matte Sculpting Lipstick in 'Restless' and it is the perfect holiday shade. It is a pricier lipstick but it's long-wearing and nourishing. I've read that it's super flattering on every one and who doesn't love a bold red lip over Christmas? 

Younique Splurge Eyeshadows

Younique is a new brand for me and I've fallen in love. The products are at a luxury price point (these eyeshadows are £21 each) but every thing I've tried has measured up to the likes of Benefit and Urban Decay. These eyeshadows have a really unique cream formula. My favourite shade is Tenacious but Assertive and Majestic are perfect for holiday parties. 

Love Always
