I hope you all enjoyed Mondays Christmas gifts under £10. Well I am stepping it up a notch to gifts under £25 today. These gifts are all super beauty related so some guys may get a little bored…do stick around though because your girlfriend/mum/sister/friend will be sure to like a few of these selects. I am about to share with you my favourite nail varnish, some super affordable natural beauty goodies and a smokey eyeshadow palette to compete with Bobbi Browns infamous chocolate palette.
Are you ready for a story? (if not, skip one paragraph 😉 )
…A couple of months ago I headed to the John Lewis Christmas 2017 launch press day and I was treated to a manicure by Nails Inc. They used the pinky polish seen in the image below called ‘Prep For Poppin”. It is the perfect nudey pink which made my heart flutter with delight. My time at the event was speedy and I had to fly off to another appointment. In typical me fashion I quickly ruined my manicure much to my dismay. I then messaged the lovely PR girls and asked what the polish was called and they saif ‘Prep For Poppin’ was only available in their Christmas gift set exclusively sold in their store. The product wasn’t even launched yet…so sad. I jumped with delight when they send me the gift set the following week. I knew I was going to be blogging it but I couldn’t help myself but use it, A LOT. To take the below shot I had to shake the bottle up and quickly shoot it because it’s not exactly full anymore. Few…well there you go, go buy yourself some, forget gifting, gift for yourself 😉 It even comes in this lovely ‘Prosecco Made Me Do It’ wash bag.
I have used Leighton Denny polishes for a really long time. There’s something about the brand that feels very honest and reliable with their nail quality…hmmm, does anyone else get that? Anyway, the gift set which you can see in my featured image is an absolute bargain and full of beautiful Christmas glittery shades which any girly girl would be thrilled with. Actually you need it for the Christmas party season so maybe go and buy it for yourself.
NAILS INC PROSSECO GIFT SET • LEIGHTON DENNY GIFT SET
Oh how in love am I with these two items…like literally sooo in love that I can’t quite express my excitement at the goodies. Laura Geller have placed their stunning highlighter in a bauble which is light enough to hang on the tree…whoop whoop, not many other beauty baubles have been light enough to actually hang on a tree. The highlighter is out of this world stunning. This highlighter with have your cheek bones glistening in the fairy lights making you the belle of the ball. If you are a long time reader of my blog you will know that I love Too Faced make up. I love how all of their products are jovial…I mean, not many brands are going to be brave enough to name one of their products, ‘Better Than Sex‘.
TOO FACED CHOCOLATE CHIP • LAURA GELLER
LUXE GIFT SETS
The GHD bauble is absolutely perfect for the kinda girl or boy who really appreciates their hair. The Split End therapy product is really intensive and great for your hair. This bauble is not the sort you would hang on your tree though…it is rather large and heavy, perfect for a higher priced Secret Santa gift. This Sukin gift set is a lovely 1 stop shop for a full facial. Sukin as a company are 10 years old and have a great ethos of using sustainable and natural ingredients. I hadn’t heard of them until recently as they are much bigger in Australia. A huge amount of their range is on Look Fantastic so we can now easily get our hands on the natural goodies with no postage fee.
