I can't tell you how tempted I am to add all of this little lot onto my Christmas list! The festive range from Clarins is possibly some of the prettiest in the shops at the moment, and this Odyssey face palette would make a really beautiful gift- it's also the perfect thing to counteract dull skin during this chilly weather (can you tell I'm trying to justify how practical it is?!) I'm a massive fan of Stila's makeup, and in particular their eyeshadows. You might remember that they released an ultra-cute collection during the summer, and their follow-up products this season are just as strong. Not only does this palette feature an amazing array of everyday shades, but it's also fantastically festive thanks to the star shaped design. Talking of festive, the Dior Grand Bal range is another really Christmassy collection- the perfect luxurious treat if you're buying for someone who loves all things beauty. This nail enamel is the perfect ruby red for the festive period and is a super-sophisticated finishing touch for any party outfit. This quad of eyeshadows from The Body Shop is an amazing stocking filler- the beautiful bronze tones are perfect for this season, and the set works out at excellent value for money too, particularly as The Body Shop tend to run some really great promotions at this time of the year. Steering away from makeup for a minute, this amazing set from Origins is the ideal remedy for the myriad of skin nightmares which winter presents. Featuring an array of their most popular products and some cult classics, the set is another really fantastic value pressie, and a dream gift for anyone who loves their skincare, as well as the perfect introduction to Origins for people who might not be too familiar with the brand. I've posted before about how cute Paul & Joe's makeup is, and they really have come up trumps with their Christmas collection. This Winter Wonderland set is adorable and is something which I'm definitely putting on my Christmas list! There are few things more festive than a statement lip, and this season bold berry shades are amongst the most coveted in the shops. This lipstick from Nars is definitely a product which would prove a real investment addition to any makeup bag, and something which would make a really lovely gift. Finally, these Stila brushes are another bargain pressie- I picked up some of their individual brushes when I was in New York a few years ago, and they are still as good as new. Definitely a must-buy for someone who loves experimenting with different makeup looks!
