It’s coming up to that time!! I’ve watched the new Netflix film The Princess Switch and I’ve bought my first tree decoration, so you could definitely say I’m in Christmas mode.
I’ve had my eyes peeled on some pressies here and there for family and friends, and today I’m giving you the low down on all the beauty and make-up goodness from Boots to help you find the right gifts this Christmas.
As much as I could easily keep all of the items I’ve chosen for myself, I’ve narrowed down who I’m giving the gifts to and why. I love shopping for makeup so I’ve got some collections and sets in there, along with some skincare for good measure. Hope you enjoy!
The first thing I chose from Boots was this makeup set by Sleek Makeup. It’s called the ‘Ultimate Collection’ and it contains pretty much every piece of makeup you could possibly imagine! I’d call this the ideal gift for someone who loves colour, bright and bold styles and experimenting with different makeup looks.
Sleek has always been a brand who want people to express themselves and this collection definitely supports that – wait until you see the shimmery pinks and blues in the eyeshadow palette!
This a-m-a-z-i-n-g set would be great for a sister or friend, and this particular one is heading over to my makeup obsessed best friend Hayley. My favourite pieces in the set have to be the Vintage Romance eyeshadow palette, and the bright pink Matte Me lipstick (which is so fab for Christmas parties I think!). It also comes with all the essentials you need for a full makeup look – you can never find mascara when you need it, can you?
If you’re struggling with Christmas Gifts for her, these kinda collections are ideal and are always at amazing prices at Boots!
The second thing I chose is perfect for the rose gold lover in your life – the Ted Baker Stately Collection. Think pretty pinks, nail varnishes, blushes and once again, everything you could possibly need for a glowing makeup look (but this time a little more natural!).
You will not BELIEVE the packaging.
Filled with the perfect red lipstick, mascara, eyebrow pencil, 2 tinted lip balms, an eyeshadow trio, 2 nail varnishes, a bronzer/highlighter compact, two brushes AND an eyelash curler, this gift is ideal for someone who deserves a real treat.
Boys, listen up, because this is the perfect gift for your girlfriend if you’re struggling! However this is heading straight under the Christmas tree with my mums name on. She deserves a girly pamper this year!
Okay, these are supposed to be gifts, but I couldn’t resist trying some of the products out. See below the lush Matte Me Sleek lipstick in That’s So Fetch along with the eyeshadow palette, plus the Ted Baker eyebrow pencil, mascara, and bronze/highlight palette.
The lippy and liner combo in the Sleek collection is a winner, isn’t it?!
Finally, don’t panic if you know someone who’s not so into makeup… Boots have loads of skincare sets available and I love the one below by No7. The festive season is definitely the time where we want to chill out, and a relaxing skincare set is always going to be a success.
Grandma is going to love me this year!!
The set includes a deluxe cleanser, a makeup remover, hydration mask and the cooooolest ever cleansing brush. Side note – the brush comes with batteries so you can get straight to the skincare routine on Christmas evening.
The lotions and potions smell delicious, and I’ve also used the No7 make up remover in the past and it’s SO good at getting off thick black eye makeup (little hint for the festive party period!).
