I love looking through the Boots Christmas catalogue every year because it is always full of so much choice and variety for all ages. I like to think of them as a mixed bag of goodies, because you just know if you’re stuck on what to buy a secret santa or Christmas gift, Boots is the one. I attended the Boots Christmas preview this year and as always, I was so excited to discover some amazing new brand as well as cult classics who have truly had a luxury shake up.
I am pleased to present my favourite findings, and hope there is some gift inspiration in here for you.
I love that No7 have vamped up their game this year. In terms of packaging, this palette is a clear winner for me. I simply adore the textured starburst design on the front of the palette. It makes me feel so festive! It’s portable too as it’s quite small and will hardly take up much room if you have lots of parties to attend. The colour selection will see you through a whole host of events, from a simple daytime look, to glamorous nude eye. It’s not limited to a particular age range either, the contrast in nudes is very versatile and it’s a wearable palette. I have a feeling this will be a hit this year.
In my eyes, Christmas isn’t complete without a gift from Liz Earle and what better way than to gift someone a cult classic that has won so many awards. Cleanse and Polish removes all traces of makeup and daily grime and the hot cloth will clean any impurities, leaving you with fresh cleansed skin. I’ve been using this product for 16 years and I simply cannot live without it. If you’re looking to purchase a gift for a teenager, your mother, or simply for a friend, give them the gift of fabulous looking skin!
Metallic lips are so on trend right now, and this set really does belong to the makeup junkie in your life. You get six metallic lipsticks and these can be worn alone, on top of lipstick. or as a topper on your cheeks or eyes to create some drama. Housed in paper packaging, I love the Gold and Black contrast Sleek have opted for with their packaging. It’s quite eye catching and pleasing to the eye. They have so many amazing sets out this year, but this one caught my eye because it’s very affordable and you get a nice selection of colours in it.
The perfect little stocking filler. For all the Rose and Pink lovers this is the perfect accompaniment to your handbag. This sweet smelling scent is long lasting and the cute floral graphics on the packaging make a great addition to the vanity.
I absolutely love Disney, and I couldn’t compile my list without mentioning this beautiful canvas makeup bag which features original artwork from the classic Disney movie Snow White. This is classic and timeless and really rekindles some old memories.
Just like the Snow White makeu bag, there is also a Cinderella version which I absoutely adore.
Following on with the Disney theme, Beauty and the Beast has been huge this year and featured quite a lot on the blog too! Boots have their very own version of the infamous Chip mug but with a bath fizzer! Genius! This plastic cup is can be re-used after, and is selling very fast.
Don’t forget that Boots has all of their Christmas gifts on offer, you can purchase 3 for 2 and I always think this goes down well because you save so much money!
