Christmas Gift Guide: Makeup

Christmas Makeup Sets 2018PIN IT

I have now completed my 12 Gifts of Christmas series for 2018 (find a full list here) which mostly focuses on slightly more luxury gift sets.  With that in mind, I’ve got a round-up of makeup, skincare and hair and body bits that didn’t make the main list but are still fabulous, many of which are a lot more budget-friendly too.  I’m kicking off this mini series with a look at some fab makeup gift sets:

I Heart Revolution I Heart Heaven SetPIN IT

I’ve literally just posted about Revolution Beauty Christmas launches as there are soooo many, but I wanted to include the I Heart Revolution I Heart Heaven set of highlighters as I thought this could be broken down into individual gifts too.  It’s £20 here – link.

NYX PMU Sprinkley Town Glitter Eye and Lip SetPIN IT

NYX Professional Makeup are another brand that tend to go all out for Christmas, releasing lots of loveliness in all the main price points.  This is the NYX PMU Sprinkle Town Glitter Eye & Lip Set, which contains everything you need for some seriously festive sparkle.  It’s £16 here – link.

NYX PMU Stocking Fillers PIN IT

NYX PMU also have some lovely little stocking fillers housed in packaging that can be hung on the tree – each are £8 and part of the Land of Lollies collection here – link.

UK Soul Beauty Brush SetPIN IT

The first of my brush sets comes from UK Soul Beauty, creators of some really lovely sets that are purse-friendly, well-made and vegan.  Pictured is the Eyes of the Soul Set which is £19.99 – you can find this and the other varieties here – link.

bareMinerals Celestial Magic Lipstick Gift SetPIN IT


I’ve got a couple of bareMinerals gifts to show you, starting with the Celestial Magic Lipstick Gift Set, which contains 8 mini Gen Nude Lipsticks.  Obviously this is a gorgeous set on it’s own, but how fab would these be as stocking fillers too? It’s £30 here – link.

bareMinerals Twilight Radiance PalettePIN IT

The bareMinerals Twilight Radiance Palette contains a trio of cream highlighters and, as you can see, the colours are extremely pretty making this a very attractive gift for £30 here – link.

Decorte Holiday CoffretPIN IT

I featured the Decorte Holiday Coffret in my 12 Gifts series here, but I’m cheekily squeezing it into this post too because I just think it’s such a lovely set that deserves a little more love! It’s £65 at Selfridges, and you could easily break it down into smaller gifts.

Soap & Glory Brow FabulousPIN IT

Soap & Glory Brow Fabulous is one of the gift sets that I’d really love to receive as I’m a total sucker for a good brow product, especially a set! The Brow Fabulous contains four brow essentials and retails for £16 – it’s currently out of stock but Boots are promising more stock soon here – link.

Zoeva All Night Long Brush SetPIN IT

The second of my brush sets is the Zoeva All Night Long Brush Set, which comes presented in a gorgeous Zoeva clutch and contains five essential brushes.  It’s £48 here – link.

IT Cosmetics Limited Edition IT Girl Beauty BookPIN IT

The final product is the IT Cosmetics Limited Edition IT Girl Beauty Book, which I almost didn’t include as it’s currently sold out, but I’m hoping more stock will arrive ASAP! This stunner of a palette contains literally everything you could need from a makeup set – I’m hoping to streamline my travel kit for my next holiday and I think I’ll just take this, a foundation and very little else.  It’s a beauty and fingers crossed it’ll return to QVC UK soon here – link.
