THE ULTIMATE ONE STOP SHOP GIFT GUIDE FOR A BEAUTY LOVER (UNDER £30!)

By far my favourite place to shop for Christmas gifts is surprisingly ASOS, I don't think many people would think to turn to ASOS, but honestly if you have fellow beauty lovers on your list this really might be the ultimate one stop shop to cover everyone. I've narrowed down a few of the best bundles they're offering this year, some with huge savings value! All products are linked for super quick and easy Christmas shopping ease. 


A collection of travel sized signature Benefit box products, from their best selling Hoola Bronzer to the Rose Golden dream that is Rockateur blush. LINK

A collection of 3 of Benefits iconic eyebrow heroines, some full sized so you're making a huge saving - available in different shades for your hair colour and presented in a gift box. LINK

The iconic best selling cleansing balm that I personally adore, but in the cutest 'bauble,' packaging. It also includes a mini double sided Emma Hardie muslin cloth. LINK

Containing two Too Faced products, one being the number one Better Than Sex mascara, this set looks so fun and is beautifully presented as a great way of trying out high end products without paying the full price! LINK

This luxurious set contains four mini NARS products, from primer to lip vinyl. This would be a beautiful addition to any make up lovers collection, it's also limited edition so they'll have bragging rights! LINK

The iconic "Orgasm" named blush paired with it's new matching lipstick. Anyone who loves this classic will adore this gift, and anyone who hasn't tried this rose gold goodness will be very grateful you gave them an Orgasm this Christmas with this limited edition set. LINK

One for the skincare junkies and self care advocates, an amazing value set of the Glam Glow face masks all in a travel sized tube and presented in a gift box. An amazing way to try all of the brands face masks before buying any full sized products. LINK

The very luxurious make up brand Laura Mercier gives you a set of four of the Caviar Eye Sticks, a beautiful cream eyeshadow that even a make up beginner would adore. These eyeshadow sticks are pretty pricey, so having four mini sticks is great value. LINK

BEAUTYBAY COLOUR THEORY PALETTES REVIEW & SWATCHES

beauty bay identity palette review

The beauty site we all know and love, (and I have watched grow into a huge company over the years,) gave us all what we wanted. Three amazing, affordable eyeshadow palettes that include everything the beauty world wanted. Unless you've been living under a rock, you'll probably be pretty familiar with this magical trio - say hello to OriginIdentity and Evolve. Three palettes, containing a very generous 42 shades, (wow...) at an even more generous price point of £25.00. Not only that, but these babes also contain a huge mirror large enough to complete your full face of make up in. This is the Colour Theory family.

BEAUTY BLENDER BOUNCE FOUNDATION

new beauty blender foundation review
So here we have it folks, the worlds most perfect foundation - a big statement, but the truest ever spoke. Despite the backlash upon its release, and having loved Beauty Blenders for so many years and never applying my base with anything else, I had to have this. I waited weeks after the initial release in the US, and we finally have it in the UK at Cult Beauty. You bet it was worth the wait, and the price of £32.00. Shockingly, not the most expensive foundation I've ever purchased but certainly far from drugstore. This is Beauty Blenders first make up product, and if this is foreshadowing what's to come then I'm very excited. 

LIME CRIME VENUS III

Despite it's problematic background, you cannot deny Lime Crime are killing the game recently and have been releasing some stunning new products - Lime Crime is also much more accessible in the UK now because it's available on Beauty Bay.

One of their most recent launches was the third edition to the Venus eyeshadow palette family, it's visually stunning and that's what really drew me in. This was a total impulse purchase, I've never read any reviews on their eyeshadow formula so I had no idea what I was going to get, I just knew it was really pretty.

Venus III includes 8 shades, 3 mattes, 2 metallic toppers, and 3 shimmers. If Anastasia Modern Renaissance and the new Norvina palette had a baby, it would probably look like this. It's full of pink and purple tones, with a hint of neutral. The pan size is pretty large, and despite the fact they're housed in a cardboard box, it's a very, very pretty cardboard box with a large mirror and a lot of metallic details - I personally love the design and the packaging is actually incredibly sturdy.
