This year brands have really outdone themselves when it comes to winter gift sets. I love a good gift set, more often than not, you get a fabulous value of money and makes a perfect treat either for yourself or for a friend of family who may celebrate Christmas or have a birthday coming up. I rounded up some of my favourites last week but I recently ventured in to Manchester and found some of these gems that I instantly put on my wish list and decided you needed to know about.
NARS One Shocking Moment | Buy Here
If there was one brand I would encourage you all to keep an eye on at this time of year, it would be NARS. They do the most incredible collaborations and the Steven Klein Collection is their best one yet. I honestly want quite a lot from the range. The One Shocking Palette is great for a traveller as it contains a bronzer, a range of blushes and a highlighter. It really is all you need. The palette is sturdy and the products last all year. At £50 it seems slightly costly but one blush from NARS sets you back £22 so this works out at a good value.
Benefit Cosmetics Real Cheeky Palette | Buy Here
A fan of Benefit and their boxed blushes? This one is for you. There are 4 blushes and their Hoola bronzer. Benefit Blushes are extremely pigmented and work well for all skin tones at £29.50 this is a great present if you are on a bit of a budget.
Stila Trust in Love Gift Set | Buy Here
The Palette that got me wanting to make this list. I was in Harvey Nichols browsing and I came across this stunning set from Stila. You all know my love for the Stila eye shadows and the colours in this palette are perfect for this time of year. Very autumnal shades with a mix of gold of red hues. It also comes with an eye liner and lip glaze.
The Body Shop Spa of the World Luxurious Christmas Set | Buy Here
Whenever I walk in to the The Body Shop I have sniff with the Luxurious Premium spa of the world range but I can never figure out what to try making this set which has a range of products from the spa of the world range. For the body shop it is quite pricey at £65 but any lover of the body shop will love this.
Estee Lauder Be Envied Lip Set | Buy Here
The Estee Lauder Be Envy Lipsticks caused quite a stir when they first launched. Personally, I am a fan of the matte range but for those of you who prefer a little bit of a creamier finish this would be perfect for you. It is a set of 4 mini lipsticks from the range including a red, a pink and a nude and they all come in this beautiful lipstick case.
NARS Magnificent Obsession | Buy Here
It is not a secret I do love a red lipstick (See here for evidence) but there is something rather special about this set from NARS. It contains a lip pencil, a velvet matte lip pencil and a lipstick. I am a huge fan of the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencils and this shade Mysterious Red is a limited edition colour which they have recently re launched. It is perfect for evening gatherings and very easily to apply on the go. The lip pencil and lipstick are in the same sharp blue toned red. A lipstick from NARS alone costs around £18 and you receive all three for £34. It also comes in the special Steven Klein packaging which is stunning if you collect make up.
And those are my top picks for gift sets. All of these items are limited edition and will sell out quite quickly so if anything catches your eye I would advise you get in there as soon as you can.
