Yep it’s that time of year again…the countdown to Christmas. Usually by this stage I’ve got most of my present shopping done and I start to turn my mind to what I would like for Christmas. This year there’s nothing really ‘big’ that I want and would be quite happy with some lovely (and luxurious) little stocking fillers. I’m leaning towards quite a few beauty items as I haven’t treated myself to anything beauty related recently (other than a new lippy or two ;)).
So Phill, if you’re listening, here’s some of the beauty items that have caught my eye this year…
MOR Boutique Snow Gardenia Little Luxuries:
I love the idea of these purse sized ‘little luxuries’ which are blooming with bergamot, snow white gardenia and juniper berries.
MOR Boutique Lip Macaron (£6.00):
Filled with Vitamin E and Beeswax, these MOR Lip Macaron sounds like the best kind of nourishment for my poor dry winter lips.
I’m a sucker for lip products and this duo of gorgeous Laura Geller lip glosses formulated with vitamin E and shea butter sounds divine and right up my street.
Clean Reserve Travel Sprays (£20.00):
Blonde Rose: embodies sexy sophistication with hits of jasmine and peony
Sueded Oud: balanced freshness of warmth and earthiness with black amber and white magnolia
Warm Cotton: crisp, nostalgic and comforting with undertones of lily and amber
Rain: rainforest inspired scent with notes of cucumber and water lily
I’ve been a fan of Clean Reserve fragrances since I bought Phill the Smoked Vetiver scent a few years ago. It’s such a high quality fragrance in the most beautifully simple bottle. I love the idea of using these travel sized fragrances…but which one?
Corkcicle Tumblr 16oz (£25):
Call me crazy but I’m a bit obsessed with travel tumblrs and I love the sound of this stainless steel one from Corkcicle. Impressively it keeps beverages cold for 9+ hours and hot for 3.
Since back in my university days (longer ago than I’d care to remember) I’ve used Too Faced products and Phill knows me well enough to always buy me a Too Faced product every Christmas. This Better Than Sex novelty tree ornament is on my list this year!
ZOEVA Voyager Caramel Melange Palettes (£12 each):
I don’t use eye-shadow very often these days but I would love a new palette for Christmas. I love this mini version of the Caramel Melange eyeshadow palette.
