Christmas Gift Guide: Beauty

I thought I would write up a little beauty gift guide post as theres’ not long left now to the 25th. These items in my opinion are perfect for people of all ages.

Elizabeth Arden, Untold. 50ml (£44)*
I have been loving this perfume because it is not too florally nor too fruity. The scent is delicate and perfect for the day. The top notes for me were pear, amber and jasmine. It smells very feminine. This is the longest lasting perfume I have ever come across, there is quite a depth to the fragrance.  I think this perfume would be perfect for people of all ages purely because it’s quite neutral. 
I also absolutely love the packaging, I really love the gold quilt style pattern on the box. The bottle is quite a simple yet elegant design. Très chic! 

Frozen Lip Smacker Tin. 6pk (£10)*

I love Frozen and I love lip balms so Frozen lip balms for me were an instant winner. I have lost count of how many times I have watched the movie. Most of my presents are wrapped with Frozen wrapping paper. WILD. When I was younger I remember always buying the Coco Cola lip smackers, as gimmicky as they were they were actually quite moisturising. This is the perfect present for Frozen fans, young and old! 

I have the individual ones pictured which are around £2.50 each or you can purchase the cute tin instead which I have linked, these include 6 lip smackers for £10. They come in 6 different flavours: Cool Vanilla Mint, Chilled Cranberry Grape, Strawberry Shake, Ice Pop, Berry Slush and Coconut Snowball. How fancy!

Lancome Hypnose Mascara gift set (£22.50)*

I have heard many great things about the Lancome Hypnose mascara so was excited to see it now included in a gift set. The set contains 3 highly raved about products:- the Hypnose Star mascara, a mini kohl eyeliner and 30ml of Bi-facial, this product removes all eye makeup, even waterproof products. 

The particular set I have is called ‘Glamour Eyes’ but there is also ‘Lovely eyes’, ‘Dramatic eyes’ and ‘Magnetic eyes’ available. They all contain the same liner and cleanser but the mascara brushes are different and so give you different effects.

This is on sale just now, 15% off so will be somewhat cheaper but House of Fraser are also hosting  a 12 Days of Christmas event and the Lancome Hypnose Mascara gift sets will be on offer from the 24th to 26th of Decemeber, so you could grab an even bigger bargain!

In a few weeks I will be writing in depth reviews of the products.

I hope you enjoyed this little Christmas gift guide. Let me know what you think of my picks!
