Welcome to the second of my Christmas Gift Guides for 2017! This time around I’m sharing with you some of the best beauty purchases under the $100 mark for the beauty lover in your life! These are some products I own plus some I’m coveting and have had recommended by you guys for inclusion – so I hope this helps you find the perfect gift!
Oh Deer Sugar – I’ve been a fan of this brand for months now and love their limited edition releases – their Christmas line is no exception! Their bath bombs are pretty powerful products and their ingredients all smell amazing and haven’t ever irritated my skin. Their Christmas range is available here and the items shown (that I purchased myself, I wish they were gifted!) are the Gingerbread Bubble Bath, Christmas Meringue in Rocky Road, Rudolph’s Wild Sleight Ride Waffle, Mince Pie Bubble Bath and It’s a Fudgy Rocky Road Cupcake.
Available from Sephora – I wanted to share with you guys a few items in a quick photo that are available from Sephora Australia that would make incredible gifts, as well as share with you some links of products I haven’t been able to add to my collection but also recommend as gifts this Christmas! Pictured are the Huda Beauty Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette, Ole Henriksen 3 Little Wonders Skincare Set, BeautyBlender Swirl (how adorable is the pink and white marble?!) and Tarte Clay Play Face Shaping Palette. Other products I’d recommend from Sephora are the Huda Beauty Contour & Strobe Lip Set, Tarte Natural Artistry Faves Colour Set and the Becca Jet-Set Prep and Prime Kit.
Available from Priceline – The Revlon x Chloe Morello Sculpt & Highlight Contour Kit would be a great addition to the collection of any beauty/YouTube lover. The Cinch Face Cheat is a multi-tasking wonder product that ticks all the boxes as a combination gift. The Ardell Lash Starter Set is the perfect gift for anyone who’s not yet confident with falsies (like me!). Model’s Prefer Day to Night Eyeshadow Palette is only $10 and an amazing gift for someone who’s new to makeup or to add variety to anybody’s collection. Other Priceline recommendations include the Nude by Nature Essential Collection Brush Set and the Nyx Lip Lingerie 3 Pack.
The Natura Siberica Oblepikha Siberica Mini/Travel Set contains their Nutrition Repair Shampoo and Conditioner, Energising Freshness Shower Gel and Body Milk in travel or trial friendly sizes for a mere $16 – value or what?! Plus the box is super cute, you wouldn’t even need to wrap it up!
The Inika Day to Night Eyeshadow Palette is vegan, cruelty-free and organic, being a perfect gift for socially-conscious beauty lovers. This beautiful palette contains all of the earthy toned palettes you’d need to create an everyday look or a gorgeous smokey eye – plus the packaging is super sturdy and contains a high quality mirror (we all know that’s important!) and would be perfect for travel!
Pampering Essentials – The EcoTools Face Mask Mates is the perfect at-home spa/pamper evening essential. With a brush that’s perfect for applying face masks evenly to your skin, this kit also contains three gently exfoliating sponge removers. I don’t know about you, but the worst and most tedious part of using face masks is the removal process – I can’t begin to calculate the amount of face washers I’ve stained and cotton rounds I’ve used! These sponges are easily washable and also have the gentle exfoliating effect on the skin – it’s an absolute must-have gift (for yourself or someone else!) this Christmas. The Pixi Rose Flash Balm is an intense brightening and moisturising face mask that would be the perfect extra item to polish off the perfect beauty gift. Another pamper-night must-have is the Tweexy – finally there’s no more juggling nailpolishes and almost spilling polish everywhere whilst painting your nails – this little essential solves all of that by effectively creating a little secure table in its ring-shaped design that holds your polish bottle – I’ve tested this and even jumped up and down and the polish bottle has stayed secured inside – I highly recommend!
Mecca Must-Haves – it was absolutely heartbreaking this year seeing all of Mecca’s holiday releases and knowing that they wouldn’t all be coming home with me! I’ve picked up two, and have selected just a very small selection of the other products that would make incredible gifts this year! (Yes friends, this is a hint!) The Stila Eye for Elegance Liquid Eyeshadow Set is the perfect gift for any glitter or eyeshadow lover in general – with three of their Glitter and Glow shades plus three new Shimmer and Glow shades this is a must-receive! The Frank Body Original and Shimmer Mini Scrub Duo is the perfect skincare gift to give – Frank’s delicious formula is so beautifully gentle on even the most sensitive of skin and their new Shimmer Scrub was an instant sellout – you’ll receive serious brownie points for this gift! And a warning to your bank account – these are my other recommendations! Too Faced Pretty Little Planner, Smashbox Sculpting Cheek Palette, Ciate x Chloe Morello Beauty Haul Volume II, Hourglass Confessions Refillable Lipstick Set, Too Faced Under the Kisseltoe The Ultimate Liquified Lipstick Set and the Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette.
Say it With Polish – Customisable things are even more popular than normal this Christmas, and I think that the Say it With Polish products really hit the mark with customisable essentials this year. Their normal line is (unsurprisingly) nail polish – you’re able to mix and match their shades with whatever you’d like on the label, being the perfect gift for friends or Secret Santas or anything in between. Their newest release is a customisable compact mirror and for $27 you’re able to customise a portable product for anyone. Being someone who’s name was never on anything as a child, this is the perfect gift for anyone who’s got a unique name or nickname!
