Christmas Present Beauty Ideas!

So, Crimble is fast approaching (groan for the purse, woo hoo for shiny lights!) Let's have a look at some of the gift sets and palettes on offer this year!

First up, Lancômes "Juicy Tubes Miniature Set". These are great for the make up bag and for those make-up artists who want a small selection (They work quite nice for television work!) They're comfortable on the lips and last a few hours.

Lancôme Juicy Tubes Miniature Set contains:
- Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Fraise 7ml
- Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Pamplemousse 7ml
- Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Lychee 7ml
- Lancôme Juicy Tubes in Marshmallow Electro 7ml 

Priced at £20.00 avaliable at Lancôme counters.

Next up, we have Benefit, who have many offerings this year in the way of Christmas sets (a part of me feels they've spent a bit too much time on the packaging though!) but the "Benefit Primping with the Stars All-Time Greatest "Fake-Its" Kit" caught my eye!

- Benefit They're Real! Beyond Mascara 3.0g
- Benefit Stay Don't Stray Stay-Put Primer for Concealers & Eyeshadows 2.5ml
- Benefit Benetint Rose-Tinted Lip & Cheek Stain 4.0ml
- Benefit Some Kind-a Gorgeous the Foundation Faker in Medium - 3.5g
- Benefit Girl Meets Pearl Liquid Pearl for Face 7.5ml
- Benefit The POREfessional PRO Balm Primer 7.5ml

I feel it's a nice kit for trying some of Benefits well known products, priced at £26.50 and available at Benefit counters.

Philosophy is the perfect brand for those that like multi-tasking products in the bathroom, with a lil' bit of luxury, this "Homemade Honey Buns Set" will be just as sweet as they are (well, maybe!)

What "they" say - "The set includes a 3-in-1 shampoo, shower gel & bubble bath and a luxurious body lotion infused with a sweet honey scent. The moisturizing, multitasking shower gel formula provides a rich, foaming lather to gently cleanse and condition, leaving skin and hair feeling soft. layer with body lotion for silky soft and lightly scented skin."

 This set is priced at £16.20 and available at John Lewis

This next gift is on my personal wish list for Santa this year and it's from Butter London.

 Sorry, but nail lovers - this is sexual right?

I feel Clinque are always great for those stuck in a skin-care rut. Go along to their website to see gifts and sets from around £20 for a full skin-care set - perfect for gifts or simply trying products out!

Boots have a 3 for 2 Mix and Match promotion for some of their Christmas gifts, so if you're looking at saving a few pennies it's worth a gander - don't forget those Boots advantage points! You might get enough for a treat for yourself in the new year!

Superdrug have a similar deal across cosmetics and upto 50% off on selected Christmas gifts.

I hope this post will help those "Want do you want for Christmas?" "Errrrrr...." moments!
