Super Last Minute Christmas Gift Guide

Despite telling myself every year to get my act together and start my Christmas shopping early, I never do. I always tend to leave it until the last minute so here’s a gift guide for the beauty lovers in your life :)

The first stop for any beauty lovers is Sephora, located in Sydney and Melbourne.

Some great gifts are available, like:-

For another great range of lipsticks, you can’t go past the Kat von D Studded Kiss. The packaging is so bad ass! The two shades I have, La Femme, which is a bright coral and Lolita, a matte, muted rosy-brown. Both long-lasting, lightweight and wearable shades.

This year, Sephora’s Holiday offering is this snowflake themed. The range includes a My Fragrance to Roll, this bubble bath and shower gel, fizzing bath balls, moisturiser, hand creams e.t.c, these are also great for stocking stuffers :)

And here are my picks for a non-Sephora gift:-


Real Techniques Deluxe Gift Set $79.99* – available at Priceline

Real Techniques Deluxe Gift Set $79.99

This gorgeous gift set comes with 4 brushes: a multi-tasking brush, tapered foundation brush, angled highlighter brush, base shadow brush and fine line brush and a white clutch – great for the party season!

Furless Cosmetics Couture Body Contour Kit $99.99* – online at Furless Cosmetics
If you’re in no rush to have presents under the tree by Christmas Day, these may be an option. There’s also currently a 20% off promotion before Boxing Day! These brushes feel so SO soft. The sleek black handles and gold writing just screams luxury and looks great on any vanity. Whilst it says it’s a body contour kit, I am able to use all brushes for my face. I can see how useful the biggest brush would come in handy for an all over body shimmer application though.

Sleek i-Lust palette and Solstice highlighting palette* – Target, online ($11.49USD for the eyeshadow palette and $14.99USD for the highlighting palette)
Just in time for Summer, where my make up goes straight to glowy looks, this i-Lust palette contains four shimmery shades and two cream shadows which can help you create day and night time looks.
The Solstice highlighting palette contains four different shades of highlight, two baked powders, one cream and one shimmer powder. The shades range from a warm rose-gold to a warm orange, all to help you achieve that glow of your life.
