Maybe that's you - we won't judge.
We’ve talked you through some great gifts for your mam and Secret Santa recipient, now we’re on to a big one: Gorgeous gifts to delight the beauty buff in your life.
Here are some of the nicest gift sets and limited edition products available for Christmas 2019 – and if you’ve no beauty buffs to buy for, maybe you can use this list to drop a few hints for yourself…
Hello Secret Santa! This cute little box contains a travel size of TooFaced’s bestselling Better Than Sex mascara, along with a mini lip gloss.
Benefit always do a great gift set, but this one is really a steal – it contains a full size Hoola bronzer and Roller Lash mascara (worth €34 and €27 respectively) and a mini Gimme Brow. A steal, we tell you!
Zoeva is one of those underrated makeup brands that does great quality products at equally lovely prices – this kit includes their gorgeous warm-toned Caramel Melange palette, as well as a highlighting palette, matte liquid lipstick, and lip liner.
We’d accept any Tilbury product gladly, but this year’s Instant Look in a Palette in Gorgeous Glowing Beauty is very special indeed. Ideal for the gal on the go, you’ve got your blush, bronzer and highlighter here as well as three rosy-toned eyeshadows. Also, the packaging is stunning.
One way to impress the skincare nerd in your life is to present them with some Drunk Elephant – this set of minis includes the Protini moisturiser, A-Passioni Retinol Cream, B-Hydra Intensive Hydration Serum, and the Slaai Makeup Melting Butter Cleanser. You may be setting them up for an expensive product habit, but… that’s beyond your control.
Image Skincare is beloved in Ireland for very good reason – the products work. This Beauty Sleep Collection would be a great gift for a new mum, containing the Max Stem Cell Cleanser, Vital C Overnight Mask and Anti-Ageing Serum, two iMask Hydrating Hydrogel sheet masks, and a silk sleep mask to help them get a lovely night’s sleep.
There has been a flood of eyeshadow palette releases this year (really, barely a week went by without a new one) but Huda’s latest would make a lovely gift. The packaging has the wow factor, the pastel shades are unique yet wearable, and the pressed glitters will make them the talk of the town on Stephen’s Night.
Irish-owned skincare brand Pestle & Mortar has attracted a cult following for their simple yet effective range. This set is the perfect introduction to the brand, containing full sizes of the Pure Hyaluronic Serum and Recover Eye Cream, as well as travel sized versions of the Hydrate Moisturiser and Exfoliate Glycolic Acid Toner.
Would it be Christmas without a little Jo Malone? Not at all. There’s something luxurious and very special about this gift box, which contains a cologne, hand wash and body crème, all in the classic Pomegranate Noir scent. Present them with this and they’ll love you forever.
