SO HERE IT IS MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I am so excited to be back at it again with a Fragrance Direct gift guide, you guys know that I rave about Fragrance Direct all year round, but Christmas is my favourite because it’s just full of amazing perfumes, all of the glitter and cute gift sets, there is quite literally something for everyone so you could probably get all of your shopping done in one place if you wanted to!
The first thing that stood out to me is just how good the price is on this gift set! Its only £53.99 and you get a 75ml fragrance, a body lotion and a shower gel within it. The Marc Jacobs fragrances are my absolute favourites, I don’t think I’ve ever had one I don’t love so I thought they would make a perfect gift too. Although I love them; all Eau So Fresh has to be one of my absolute top 3 so I’ve picked this out for my sister and I am totally in love with the gorgeous Christmas gift set packaging. The bottles are so beautiful, they make such a lovely gift because they are on the pricier side for a perfume it is probably something you wouldn’t buy for yourself so it’s lovely to treat someone you love! You can’t ever go wrong with a Marc Jacobs scent and I couldn’t recommend them enough. I also love Eau So Sweet, and Daisy Sunshine!
This again, is one of my favourite Scents. It’s one of those super wearable ones you can wear during the day, or in the evening for a night out or a fancy party. I initially tried this after falling in love with the Black XS scent and wanted to give this one a go and its gorgeous. I’m also obsessed with the bottle, the snake is so cool and the gold with the pink is super pretty. I am rubbish at describing scents but it is delicioussss, it’s one of those ones you smell on someone as they walk past and you go AHA IT’s PURE XS!
This set also comes with a mini bottle you can pop in your handbag and a little shower gel which is gorgeous, the tin is SO COOL, its like an American postage style tin and there’s gold shredded foil behind the products which makes it look so gorgeous for a gift.
I have never tried a Tommy fragrance before but I love Tommy Hilfiger as a brand for clothing and accessories so I thought I’d give it a go, especially as it makes such a lovely gift with the cute little makeup/wash bag as part of the set! This smells delicious. I love the style of the Tommy Hilfiger products and I have a couple of tshirts which I love, so this really jumped out to me. I wish Christmas gift sets were available all year round as the packaging, the style of them and the little added extras are just perfect.
When I saw this I just had to have it. I have had a SOSU highligher palette for years now which I absolutely love and so I knew this would be amazing. I am obsessed with the colour options in this palette, theres a mix of shimmers and mattes, brights and neutrals and some uber glittery ones. Making it a palette you could grab for any occasion and be able to create a suitable look. The glitters are just perfect for the holiday season and would make a lovely gift for someone for chrimbo!
I cannot tell you how long I’ve had my eye on the Anastasia Beverly Hills palettes, they are just GORGEOUS, I love the velvet cover of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Eyeshadow Palette. It’s the perfect palette for everyday wear but also has some pretty shimmers in it if you were wanting to transition from day to night. Lots of lovely neutrals and a few blue/greeny shades and some warmer tones which I love together. The mustard tones also really drew me in, what I love most about this palette is that all of the colours work really well together, you could pick a selection of any of them for the crease, lid, inner and outer corner and they’d all work really well and look gorgeous in combination.
This palette is so versatile, with the neutral eye shades and the shimmers for highlight you can use it on your eyes and your . Much like the bigger palette, it has a few of the mottled shimmers in which are just unreal I swatched one lightly as soon as I un-boxed it and the pigmentation is honestly next level… I was stood in my kitchen alone when I opened it, I just couldn’t wait and I just went SHUT UP really loudly…the glitter is incredible. This is a great palette for a gift as it’s very neutral but also with some bolder shades such as the deep reds and pinks which are perfect for the party season! LaRoc is also completely cruelty free too which is fantastic!
This eye shadow palette is one of the most beautiful palettes I’ve ever seen. I am a sucker for anything rainbow, I just get drawn in because the colours are so pretty 😍. I don’t want to sound dramatic (but defo going to sound dramatic) this legit makes me want to cry its SO PRETTY. This palette has quite literally got every colour you’d ever need in it. The mottled colours are pressed foil pigments, they are glittery and shimmery and the pigmentation is UNREAL. The palette itself is literally huge, I wasn’t expecting it to be so big but its massive, the pans for each colour are so big you’re literally getting so much product for each colour. The top half of the palette is fairly neutral and the bottom half has all of the amazing bright colours it’s just stunning. This would be the perfect gift for anyone who loves makeup for Christmas, after much deliberation, I am going to be gifting it from me…to me. I just can’t part with it it’s TOO gorgeous, so whether you’re buying for someone you love or you’re wanting to treat yourself you NEED this palette!
(It’s also currently £10 off the RRP on Fragrance Direct which is amazing)
This is the cutest little addition, whether it’s for a stocking filler or an extra little gift for a Cath Kidston lover. I love the little tin it comes in, it just makes it even more special and I love that you can keep it even after you’ve used the products. I don’t know about you guys but I’m always using little tins and things for storage, and they’re even better when they’re cute!
I am in love with these brush sets. Real Techniques are hands down my favourite makeup brush brand and these sets you can get over the Christmas period are always so nice. I have used Real Techniques since I was about 14 and they are always my go-to brushes. This set would be perfect for a makeup lover or for someone who’s fairly new and starting out with make-up and doesn’t know where to start with brushes. There are a lot of different real techniques sets on Fragrance Direct including some new ones, and some of the absolute classic must haves. I am just totally in love with the gorgeous colours of this set.
