LUXURY GIFT GUIDE
Merry Christmas friends! Over the next couple of weeks things will get a lot more festive around here as I share with you a number of gift ideas for those of you who, like me have left their Christmas shopping a little late. Today we start with luxury.
I dont think there is a better time of year to spoil the ones you love than at the end of the year. Perhaps as a reward for a hard years work, reaching that goal or as a token of appreciation.
This guide features five (and a spare) golden inspired luxury products for the beauty lover who appreciates the finer things in life.
The Charlotte Tilbury, Charlotte’s Beauty Icons features five of CT’s best selling products in mini size.
Uniting five Tilbury icons – in perfectly portable sizes – this ultra-covetable collection makes the perfect gift, especially if you’re treating yourself. Start with ultra-moisturising Magic Cream, top this with glowing goddess-worthy Wonderglow, enhance your eyes with Full Fat Lashes, then perfect lips with ‘Pillow Talk’ liner and ‘Penelope Pink’ lippie.
For the luxury lippie lover, there was no other launch this year that was extra EXTRA than the Hourglass Confessions lipstick system. This set contains 3 lipstick cartridges along with the golden lipstick holder.
This sleek and stylish lipstick set features the Hourglass gold applicator designed to be used with the entire collection of ‘Confession Ultra Slim Lipstick Refills’ for flawless and precise application, as well as three best-selling shades – My One Desire, True Loves Means, and You Are My.
Marc Jacobs lipsticks are so creamy and luxurious, this year they have released a limited edition shade in this great leopard print lipstick case. The shade Purr-fect is a lovely creamy pink shade that is perfect for anyone with light to medium dark skin tones. The satin finish formula is non drying and long wearing.
Nars always do great holiday collections and this year has been even more special than usual. The Man Ray collection features a number of richly hued palettes and gorgeous lipstick sets, but the product I had to pick up is the Overexposed Glow Highlighter in the shade Double Take.
Double Take is a soft golden powder highlighter, on the cheek it sheers out to be golden enough to look great on medium skin tone but isnt too dark to look strange on lighter skin tones.
Aaannd the mother of all lipstick sets. The Bobbi Brown Luxe Classics Mini Lip Set contains 10 shades of the beautifully pigmented Luxe lipstick shades. These lipsticks are opaque at one swipe, yet are super moisturising.
This collectible set includes 10 pigment-rich, vibrant shades of lipstick in Bobbi Brown’s deeply moisturizing Luxe Lip Colour formula.Infused with vitamins C and E as well as the powerful peptide MaxiLip, it supports natural collagen production to reduce the appearance of lip lines and relieve flaking, so just one full-coverage swipe leaves lips plump and hydrated. Set includes mini sizes (2g) of the following shades: Bellini, Uber Beige, Bond, Bahama Brown, Uber Rose, Tahiti Pink, Flame, Plum Brandy, Red Velvet and Imperial Red.
