It’s weeks away from Christmas and there’s always two different people when it comes to buying gifts. The first type is one who has had everything planned out and bought since October. The other, is the person who leaves it to the very last minute. While the early birds may be able to flaunt a very smug face at the last minute purchasers, you my friends have the last laugh, as I have put together some of my favourite last minute panic presents! There’s a range of budgets and a present for each type of beauty lover.
1 – You know she loves beauty products and makeup, but just not quite sure what:
£5 and Under:
Dove – Radiance Gift Set
It’s £2.50 at Superdrug and it’s such a cute little gift to get for someone, especially if you are unsure of their favourite brands or products. Dove is a loved brand and their products are such high quality. This little present would go down a treat, especially for a secret santa.
Paul Mitchell – Make Up Brush Set
What make up lover doesn’t adore brushes? Cosmetic addicts swear by their favourite brushes and love adding to their collection, so why not make that happen? This wonderful little set, available on Feel Unique, is a great addition to a collector’s set. It can also be used for travel. It comes in a fantastic little case and will be much used.
Lancome Hypnose Drama Mascara
Lancome is an incredibly rated brand which is raved about by many beauty enthusiasts and bloggers. A Mascara is a great gift for a makeup lover, and this little set would suit a make up lover perfectly.
2 – The nail varnish addict:
£5 and Under:
STUDIO LONDON Glass Nail Files
With great nails comes great responsibility. The perfect manicure is the result of many things, one of which being the shape of the nail. These two nails are stylish and are a handbag must have.
Ted Baker Magnificently Manicured
Ted Baker is a fantastic high end brand, and these collection of colours would make a brilliant gift for the girl who loves her nails and her designer brands.
Nails Inc. Autumn/Winter Mini Gel Effect Collection
Another brand with a good reputation; Nails Inc is a brand any nail lover will recognise. These colours are some classic shades for autumn/winter and are also gel effect, which is one of the latest trends.
3 – The Skincare lover:
£5 and under:
Nivea Skin Hydration Gift Set
Roger Gallet – D’Orange handcare duo
Skincare doesn’t stop at the face! This cute little set is a thoughtful one. With two products which are wonderfully housed in a well-made cosmetics bag, this would make an ideal gift for the lady who loves her hand creams.
Liz Earle Instant Radiance Collection
Having received this myself before, I can’t stress enough how useful these products are and the amazing quality of them. As they come in small bottles, they are perfect for both travel and everyday use. The products are extremely well made and a little goes a long way!
