Present buying is so much easier when you can get everything in one place. I’ve talked about Feel Unique on the blog before, and I had to mention some of the most amazing gifts that are on offer this year. I really feel that there is a large variety of products to choose from and who can resist a limited edition or gift set? I’m very excited by the fact that they now stock Charlotte Tilbury amongst other brands I love. Shopping online at Feel Unique is fuss free and there is so much to choose from. Christmas is the time for giving, so why not treat someone you love with makeup from Feel Unique? Better yet, you can always treat yourself (FYI, this happens to me 99% of the time) Read on to find out about some of the most sought after gifts for 2017!
Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Mini Celebrity Lipstick Charms Gift Set
I am obsessed with Charlotte Tilbuy right now and I simply love the formula and packaging of the lipsticks. Just for Christmas, you can pick up this utterly gorgeous little lipstick set for just £29 and it contains 3 best sellers of Charlotte’s lipsticks. Kim KW is a beautiful Pink nude which looks stunning with a smokey eye. I am obsessed with this colour! Secret Selma is a muted Plum shade with a matte finish which is so flattering and will go perfectly with any makeup look. Next we have Carina’s Love which is bold and daring and perfect for Christmas season and it will give you the pout of your dreams! The choice of colours in this set are perfect to suit any mood and any occasion and I really feel they are classic colours which will see you through for any type of event and even day wear. These are 3 shades I always have in my kit because they are versatile and striking whilst making a statement. I am pleased to report these minis are purse friendly meaning they will fit even the smallest of clutches without taking up any space and they are ideal for touch ups on the go and throughout the night. Housed in the classic gold packaging this trio is a delight for any makeup lover and the price point is perfect. As well as amazing colour, the formula conditions the lips – and I have talked about this before, the lipsticks feel so comfortable to wear. If you’re not buying this as a present, I really do recommend you gift this to yourself as it’s very affordable.
Charlotte Tilbury Magical Mini Brush Gift Set
The Magical Mini Brush set contains 4 brushes which come in this stylishly beautiful clutch. It contains 4 mini essential makeup brushes which are just perfect to simply pop into the clutch and take with you on a night out. Now I don’t know about you, but I do often end up touching up my eyes throughout the night to keep them looking fresh and this little set caters to all your on the go needs. There are 4 brushes which are a must have for any makeup routine and this set contains a powder brush which is perfect for setting your makeup. Then we have a blender brush which just blends out any flaws in your eyeshadow and keep your eye makeup in tact. I don’t know about you, but when I laugh and the tears come rolling out, my eye makeup smudges so bad and I always, without fail, need to go and blend it back to normality! The third brush is a smudger brush. Now this is very handy to have in the set because if you are going out somewhere after work, you can go from a daytime to evening look in minutes with the help of this brush and a little blending. Use this to smoke out your eyelid and under eye for a smouldering finish. This is actually my favourite type of brush to use for smudging, and I’m glad it’s in the set. The final brush is the precision brush, and now this can be used for multiple different reasons – inner corner highlight, brown bone highlight, exaggerating the crease and even as a lip brush. The possibilities are endless really and all the brushes in this set can be used for multiple things. You are never restricted. Even with the powder brush for example. yes you can use it to set your makeup with powder, but you can also use it to blend and apply blusher, bronzer, even highlighter. For £45 you get 4 of Charlotte’s iconic brushes complete with a branded clutch which can be used on a night out. I think this makes a lovely gift.
Laura Mercier L’Amour Exotique Face Illuminator Collection
Laura Mercier highlighting palettes always give me all the glow feels and this face illuminator palette just blows me away. You can customise your glow in a couple of sweeps and the colours are just so intense and mesmerising. As always, I’d say you’re never restricted on how to use this, because you can highlight in many ways – cheekbones, eyelids, lips and decolletage. You can build the colour up too and really make it pop. I’ve always been a fan of Laura Mercier illumintaors – I have owned many in the past, but I love that they’ve created a palette with their 4 best selling shades into one so you can really customise your glow. The palette itself is travel friendly and I do feel this is a selling point for most people – I know a lot of you carry your makeup with you in your bags and you want ease and comfort. In terms of gifting, this is delectable, pretty to look at, good quality and I think long standing fans of the brand will appreciate being gifted a palette like this at Christmas because let’s face it, highlighters make any woman happy really.I am always delighted and I just know that any makeup fan would be too. Brushes which are ideal to use with this type of highlighter I would say a fan brush of course or a fluffy angled brush. There are 4 shades in total ranging from Indiscretion, Devotion, Temptation and Infatuation and they make the perfect luxury Christmas present. You’ll experience very little to zero fall out because the formula is made to perfection and if you’ve been undecided on which highlighter to go for – now you can have them all! Price wise, this is very good value for money as the price of the palette is £45 and it works out to be around £11 per shade. It really is a bargain.
Stila Star-Studded Eight Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Set
Stila gift sets are on fire this year – they have been selling out thick and fast and have proved extremely popular. This set of 8 comes with deluxe sizes of the the much loved Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick formula. I’m going to go straight in and tell you why you need this set – firstly you get 8 shades in total which works out to be around £5.60 per lipstick, they make perfect handbag companions and the formula is so creamy and soft and long lasting. There are 6 matte shades and 2 never before seen shimmer shades which are perfect for Christmas because we all love a bit of shimmer during party season. The set costs £45, but the real value is £64 so you’re making a saving there in itself.
Shades are as follows:
- Patina Shimmer (dusty rose with shimmer) – NEW
- Beso Shimmer (true red with shimmer) – NEW
- Perla (pale dusty pink)
- Patina (dusty rose)
- Aria (magenta plum)
- Chianti (deep plum)
- Rubino (beet red) – NEW
- Sogno (warm rose) – NEW
There are in total 4 never before seen shades which are exclusive to the set and they offer complete full coverage for a fuller pout. The liquid lipstick trend isn’t about to die down anytime soon and this makes a great addition to any makeup lovers collection because there is a large variety of colours to suit any mood or party. Now I do already own a few Stila liquid lipsticks and love them because they never bleed or transfer and I really like the lightweight formula they have to offer. They are fully nourishing because they contain Vitamin E and Avacado Oil which means you can look good whilst looking after your pout too! I am obsessed with this set because it contains so many different colours and if you’re looking at this from a gift perspective, then you have a few options – you can gift this as one set as a main present, or you can split them up as stocking filler presents, or split them up between 4 people. If you have lots of women to buy for, then this could even make 8 different stocking filler presents. I’ve always loved the Stila lip products and I just know that anyone who receives this as a present will love it too.
