I know it may seem a bit early to be writing a Christmas post but Christmas is just over a month away and I’m so unprepared! If you’ve already started your Christmas shopping, go you! Because I certainly haven’t and it’ll be left to the last minute as per usual!
Saying that, if you’re as unprepared as I am, why not start by making a list about what you’d like this year?! I’m starting with my Christmas beauty wishlist and hoping my boyfriend will see this post, who knows?!!
There are so so many gorgeous makeup and beauty pieces out at the moment in the run up to Christmas and lots of different gift sets. Perfect for stocking fillers, you’re sure to see something you like. Enjoy!
I’ve written a post previously about the MAC 2017 Christmas collection.The pieces are stunning and the packaging is to die for but MAC have also released a huge number of other Christmassy kits and products that I’ll gladly add to my wishlist! There’s far too many to feature but my favourites are their Snowball Lip-Kit which contains 4 shades of lipsticks and their Pigment and Glitter Kit that contain 3 different pigments and comes with a cute sequined bag too. MAC have definitely outdone themselves this year with such a huge Christmas collection.

Next up is a product I have been seeing absolutely everywhere lately. The NYX Lip Vaults that come in a variety of finishes from mattes to metallics. The sets contain 36 shades and are retailed at €85 which is well worth it as it’s worth much more.
NYX Lip Vault- Soft Matte
Huda Beauty are the most sought after beauty products the last few months and I completely understand why. I’ve been dying to get my hands on anything from the brand but especially the eyeshadow palettes and they are definitely top of my list! The shades are gorgeous in each and every single one but how gorgeous are the newly released ‘Obsessions palettes’?! There are 4 different types but my favourite by far is the ‘Mauve Obsession’ one. Retailing at just €28 they’re the best priced high end palettes around right now.

For so long I’ve been saying I would buy a Glitter Glue for when I use pigments and what better time than in the run up to Christmas! I’ve heard that Too Faced glitter glue is brilliant but NYX have a set for Christmas that contains a glitter glue and 3 pigments for just €20, bargain!
NYX Glitter Goals
I’ve mentioned in previous posts how stunning the Stila Liquid Eye Shadows are and what’s even better is the trio set released for Christmas. The set contains 3 of the most gorgeous shades ‘Kitten Karma’, ‘Smoky Storm’ and ‘Diamond Dust’ and for just €28 it’s a must have set.

My Favourite makeup brush brands are definitely Sigma and Blank Canvas. The quality and longevity of the brushes is brilliant and well worth the money spent. But one type of brush I am constantly looking for more of are eye brushes. Especially because we use so many different colours of eyeshadow that its better to have fresh brushes than mixing colours and having to wash them after every use. Sigmas Eye Kit brush set are something I definitely need. It contains 7 different top quality eye brushes with a multitude of uses. Costing only €75 for the set, it’s well worth it.

Although I’ve only mentioned six different things I’m sure there’s so much more I could add to the list! I have lots of gift guides coming up on the blog very soon for Christmas so keep an eye out for those!
