Christmas Gift Guide - Beauty Products

Hi everyone!
If you follow my twitter then you will know that I have started a new 'series' on my blog. I will be doing 5 Christmas themed posts throughout the lead up to Christmas. Today's post is a gift guide on beauty products from high range to low. 

1. Rimmel Apocalips 

This one is on my wishlist! I haven't had the chance to buy one of my own but my friend owns 2 in the shades 'Apocapliptic' and 'Nova'. They look absolutely gorgeous on the lips with a flawless finish. The colour is extremely pigmented and lasts for ages! I would definitely recommend you try them out if you haven't managed to get your hands on one already. The RRP  is £5.99 

2. Essie Winter Collection 

Again, these are on my wishlist. I have been looking at all the pictures of people wearing these shades and they are so pretty. They have a rich tone and are very apt  for winter. I personally think Essie nail polishes are the best as I find they don't chip and continue to stay a strong colour the whole time your wear it. The RRP is £5.50

3. Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder

Now this I have tried and purchased. I hate when I get an oily look from foundations or with my natural skin so I turned to powders to help me. However, I found not all powders gave me enough coverage until I found this. It is just the right consistency to remove oil and leave your face matte with a gorgeous glow. Definitely a good purchase. The RRP is £3.99

4. Chanel Rogue Allure Velvet 

Another wishlist item! I know many people hate the texture of matte lipsticks but after reading the description of these I am just dying to give them a go. They have now added two new colours to their collection in 'La Precieuse' and 'La Desiree' The colours are rich and musky a bit like mulled wine. Perfect for Christmas. They are a bit on the pricey side however, at RRP of £20.80

5. MAC Prep + Prime Skin Base Visage 

I should really re-name this post to 'My Christmas Wishlist' because once again, this is on it! I struggle with covering my blotchy skin and getting an even look. This product does it all! After reducing oil it evens out redness giving an even and flawless base for your foundation/powder. It sounds like the perfect product and I want it so bad! The RRP is again quite pricey at £20.50

So there you have it, my Christmas Gift Guide on all things beauty. I know it's only a few but I could ramble on for hours so I thought I would cut it down. I hope you enjoyed and maybe found a few ideas. What products are on your wishlist this Christmas? I would love to know!

  1. I just finally gave in and bought one of the apocalips.
    I've been wanting to buy Essie polishes in ages but don't want to pay much but £5.50 isn't bad if they're going to last long.
    The MAC primer is great! It's pricey but lasts for ages and a must have for me as I unfortunately suffer from massively oily skin.
