Christmas Gift Guide: Limited Edition goodies to just buy for yourself
Tue, 13 December 2016 3:03PM
So far we’ve covered a whole range of people you’re probably trying to buy Christmas gifts for this year – your vegan friend, the office Kris Kringle, that person who has everything… but let’s bring the focus back to YOU. Because really, Christmas is the greatest time to gift yourself something spesh – mainly because loads of brands release limited edition gift packs with your favourite products, so you can stock up on stuff you love (or something new you’ve been lusting after for months) at either a cheaper price, or in a new, fancy shade or formulation. Here are our top picks that our office are secretly buying for ourselves!
Australis The Vault
All the cult classics from Australis are here – the iconic contour kit, Ready Set Go Finishing Powder – which is phenomenal for long-lasting makeup, one of the most celebrated Velourlips shades, Doo-Bai, and more.
Too Faced Sexy Lashes Rain Or Shine
Here’s all you need to know. Too Faced’s Better Than Sex mascara is one of the all-time highest sellers worldwide, with a huge legion of committed fans. It’s $33 normally alone – but with this Christmas pack, you get a full size of the original formula, plus a mini of the waterproof one. What’s not to love?
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Surreal Light
Hourglass’s Ambient Light range is a cult favourite amongst bloggers and vloggers worldwide. This kid contains two of the blushes, a powder, a bronzer and a strobe lighting powder – so you’re basically buying an entire face’s worth of perfectly-lit glow. Trust us when we say there will not be a product in this you will not be obsessed with.
Zoeva Rose Golden Luxury Set
Zoeva make some of the most phenomenal makeup brushes on the market – and at a remarkably affordable price given their professional grade. This set is perfect for anyone who loves a flawless application but isn’t at the stage where they, say, use 14 different eyeshadow tools.
It Cosmetics Naturally Pretty Essentials with Superhero Mascara Mini
It Cosmetics works hard to make sure their products work even harder – so it won’t surprise you to learn these eyeshadow shades are gorgeously matte, super easy to blend, and all equally wearable colours. The Hello Light shade is the perfect illuminating base for your lids (and works equally well as a cheekbone highlighter), and getting one of the iconic Superhero mascara mini’s as a bonus? Y-E-S.
bhave Limited Edition Damage Control
bhave are renowned for their restorative hair products, so being able to buy three full sized ones in a single hit is pretty fantastic. The Intense Repair shampoo and conditioner set alone is fantastic for bringing back shine, softness, and manageable strands – but their new Super Nova leave-in elixir is an absolute dream come true for anyone who deals with knotty, dry hair after showering – one of the best detangling and softening products out there!
GHD Copper Luxe Premium Gift Set
Fact: Christmas is the best time EVER to stock up on a new hair tool. All the major brands release limited edition versions of their cult classics, and you can usually end up scoring extra goodies like travel bags, hair product and so on in their Limited Edition sets. GHD’s copper luxe range this year is our pick – how gorgeous is this straightener! Plus – new polish for summer, yes please!
Jurlique Herbal Recovery Essentials
Jurlique’s Herbal Recovery range has a huge following – the concentrated botanicals help to address early signs of ageing, so it’s perfect for busy women who may be seeing their first fine lines and uneven skin tone. This is everything you could need to kickstart a hard working anti-ageing routine.
