Last Minute Beauty Lovers Christmas Gift Guide

christmas gift guide 2016 ft smashbox charlotte tilbury pixi ouai emma hardie bee good

It’s nearly Christmas, woohoo! I for one am counting down the days to getting off work and relaxing for a couple of weeks! I thought I’d put together a quick gift guide today for anyone who still has some last minute shopping or ordering to do! Heads up though – I’m a little last minute too so some of these sets are out of stock but there are a lot similar available!

Smashbox Light it Up LA Lights Blush Mega palette lipstick and mattifier set review

Makeup
I've got a whole review on these two limited edition sets here but in short, I absolutely love them and they are perfect for anyone looking to start or expand their makeup collection! Both sets are beautiful quality and contain enough shades for everyone to do their makeup for the next year! I have to say I particularly love the blush palette and have been neglecting my other blushes since I got it and while I love the lipstick set too there are other longer lasting lipsticks on the market but for such a wide range of shades (doubled with the mattifier!) it’s a great price! Both sets are temporarily out of stock on the Smashbox website but the lipstick set is still available at Boots here!

Smashbox Light it Up LA Lights Blush Mega palette lipstick and mattifier set review christmas 2016

I think a luxe lipstick is a perfect Christmas gift – it’s not something you buy yourself every day and it’s that bit more special when you use it! This is my second CT lipstick and I absolutely love the K.I.S.S.I.N.G. formula! There are so many shades to choose from and I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t be happy to see one of these under the tree! Unlike the Smashbox lipsticks, these are super long lasting!

emma hardie amazing face starter kit moringa cleansing balm

Skincare
I picked this up for my mum for Christmas from Cult Beauty but Emma Hardie is available in loads of stores now! My mum loves this cleanser but uses it sparingly as it’s expensive so I thought I’d get her this set so she can try the face cream too! I've also noticed they have changed the lid to a sturdier one now – I always used to split the old plastic one so I’m glad to see this! Still in stock at Emma Hardie or Marks and Spencer!

pixi gift of glow tonic mud cleanser rose oil blend

I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw this set on Marks & Spencer a few weeks ago and still can’t believe it was only £30! It is ridiculously good value for some cult Pixi favourites! I absolutely love the Glow Tonic and Glow Mud Cleanser already so I am glad to have backups. I have also been meaning to try the Rose Oil Blend for ages and so far so good, it’s a lot lighter than something like the Trilogy Rosehip oil but is lovely all the same! I haven’t tried the wipes yet and I don’t use wipes that often anyway but do like to have some to hand so they will come in useful!

This would make an amazing starter set for someone looking to get into skincare but because I am so unorganised it’s out of stock L Pixi have a few other sets on Cult Beauty and Marks and Spencer but I also think any of their single items would be a gorgeous present as the products are such high quality and so effective!

the ouai holiday volume kit

Haircare
I fell in love with the OUAI haircare range earlier this year when I was sent the repair range as well as some styling products and as I’m nearly out of the shampoo I though I would treat myself to one of these holiday kits. Never did I think I would be so “into” a haircare range but I am completely in love with OUAI and its scent! They do these sets in a few different styles so as well as Volume there is Repair and Curl but be quick as most are out of stock (sorry)! OUAI is available from Cult Beauty, Space NK, Beauty Bay, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges as well as others!

bee good hand and lip treat christmas 2016

Stocking Fillers
I've never tried this brand myself before but I've read good reviews and picked up a couple of these sets in the Black Friday sales from Look Fantastic for a few of my aunts. It contains a good size hand cream and lip balm and I think it’s a lovely little treat for someone and I know I always like to have both of these types of products in my handbag so think they make a nice little gift or stocking filler!

So there we have the world’s worst gift guide where almost everything is out of stock! None the less, if you do still have some gifts to get I hope you got some inspiration! I hope you all have a lovely Christmas and I'll be back with another post on Boxing Day! 

What have you got on your Christmas list this year?

  6. Don't worry Danielle, I'm so late with Christmas shopping and planning myself! The Emma Hardie Amazing Face Starter Kit looks SO good! I can't believe I haven't tried anything from the brand yet. So I'd like to actually get that for myself haha. It's funny I actually 'tried' to do some Christmas shopping today and was looking for the Pixi Gift of Glow set. Obviously now reading your post I know why I couldnt find it anywhere! I'm so annoyed that I didn't get it earlier now, especially seeing it had full size products!!xx

  23. OUAI is definitely a brand that I will be exploring next year and another haircare brand that I plan to try is Living Proof. Great suggestions, Danielle and wishing you a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.
