Christmas Gift Guide for the Beauty Addict!

I'd say that the easiest person to buy gifts for is one that loves makeup and beauty, so you probably don't need this 'Christmas Gift Guide for the Beauty Lover'... But just because, I made it anyway!

1.       Bobbi Brown Caviar and Oyster Set $125 – this is such a luxe palette, saw it when I went shopping with my cous last weekend, so perfect! It’s a limited edition and contains eight shadows and one skin luminescent powder. I love this collection – want it all! 
2.       Yves Saint Lauren Rouge Pour Couture $55 – Have always wanted some of these, maybe it’s just the packaging? Pretty little gift.
3.       Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Lip Stain $50  -  I have this in 19 Apricot Beige. It's such a nice product. Really luxurious too so it makes the perfect little gift, I love all the colours.
4.    Benefit High Flyin’ Gloss Set $49 – Such a cute set, contains shimmering nude, dusty rose, pearly pink, juicy watermelon, glossy coral and a golden nude.
5.       MOR Melbourne Cosmetic Purse Trio $34.95 – These would be so useful for travel and to put in your purse to keep your makeup all together!

6. Valentino Valentina Assoluto EDP 80mL Set $193.00 –  I haven’t actually smelt this but I like how they describe it: Sensual, sophisticated… Floral but intense and seductive! The bottles for both the EDP and the lotion are just gorgeous.
7. Guerlain Liu Meteorites Travel Compact $280.0 – Look at this and tell me the name of ANYONE that would not want this compact. This is something that you would keep forever, it's refillable and so can last you long enough to pass onto your kids ;) I have my grandmas old makeup compact and I cherish it! Guerlain products are fantastic, I have the loose perles, but the pressed version is good because it can be carried around for touch ups during the day.
8.    Bobbi Brown Lip and Eye Palette in Uber Nude $60.00 – love the mauve colours in this, anything from the newest collection at Bobbi Brown would make a great gift, they have other colour themes, but look at that sparkly purple colour – LOVE.
9.   Moroccan Oil Volume Holiday Pack $115.00 – Sometimes I think us beauty addicts forget about our hair, treat your locks with a nice pack like this! Hair treatment oil has been a savior for my hair, would be great to give someone the opportunity to try more from the range!
10. Guerlain Liu Perfumed Shimmer Powder Face, Body & Hair $133 – Read about this on Temptalia. A light-as-air powder that is released by pressing the bulb, it smells divine and leaves a beautiful golden veil over the skin. It’s just such a unique product, I’d love to own it.
11. And finally, these acrylic makeup organisers are hot property ever since the Kardashian's featured theirs. The price ranges from $100 - $200 so they're not cheap, but if someone is expecting a lot of cosmetics from SANTA, might be nice to give them something to put it all in. ;) 

So, what's on your list for Christmas?

Makeup haul

Hey ladies,

I just went shopping to David Jones with only one thing in mind... The new YSL Lip Stain - but as usual ended up with 10 times more than what I intended and I thought I would share!

So what I went shopping for was the YSL Glossy Stain in 19 Apricot, Lilly Ghalichi suggested this on her blog. It's actually so beautiful I want to get a lot of the other colours too! It's my second YSL product and I think i'm hooked!



Got this for free with the lip stain, mega cute mini YSL Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in 24 - it is gorgeous and a generous size!

This is ALWAYS sold out whenever I go in to get it, I have been scraping out of the tube for the past year and it looks feral!
It's Napoleons San Francisco lipstick from the NP Set. So happy I finally have this again, and that I can use it in public!

If you spent $39.95 or more o Revlon in David Jones you got a summer gift pack, so I got these two glosses. The Colourburst glosses are divine, I first chose Bellini - the apricot shade, then when I found out about the deal I chose Sizzle Canicule - the mega hot red! 

Swatches of the glosses; left is Sizzle Canicule and right is Bellini!

And this was the gift set you got.
Really good for the money! Can't wait to try the other items; Smokey Shadow Stick in 201 Torch, Colourstay Foundation in Natural Beige (MY COLOUR - lucky!), Siren Nail Polish  (already have it though lol), Lip butter in Peach Parfait (didn't have this, which is great!) and Grow Luscious Mascara.

From ModelCo I got this mit for applying fake tan, so now my hands wont get all brown!! It can be used with any type of tanner and is supposed to help make it easier to apply and more even!

The sales woman at David Jones is way too good at her job... She told me about their 'goodie bags' which are $20, and contain all these full size and travel size products! I chose this one which has; David Jones Foundation Brush, Men's Hair and Body Wash (will give to Jack), L'Occitane Hand Creme (I carry the full size of this everywhere, now I don't have to!), Sleep Pulse Point Aromatherapy thingy (meant to help you sleep?),  In Essence Cleanser, OPI Nail Polish with no name, Grown Watermelon Lip Balm and a ModelCo Lipgoss in Strip Tease. Really happy with this, it came with a canvas bag and a clear plastic vanity bag too. Good opportunity to try new products!

Unrelated but I also picked up these sweet druzy earrings from Lovisa after I left David Jones, love them!

These are the Lovisa earrings; how pretty are they on?


Phew, that was an exciting night - I always get worked up about new products and good buys!!!!!!!
I hope you enjoyed and let me know what you thought,

I'm doing a tutorial tomorrow so I'll speak to you then,
