Christmas Beauty Goodies

Ooo already in Week 7 of my school term, I can sense Christmas approaching! And I'm excited -especially after I went browsing around and saw so many fabulous Christmas gift sets. Now obviously a lot of these 'limited edition' gift sets are repetitive or have many not so great products in them, so I've picked a few that I really like (or new products I simply must mention!) They all make lovely Christmas presents *hint hint*.


Dior DiorPlay -What can I say? No brand does cute, attractive packaging better than Dior. This diamond-studded dice contains a simple pink lip gloss. While it is overpriced for such a simple lip gloss, one must remember that Dior lipglosses never fail to disappoint. And if you're one of those Dior addicts, then no doubt you will need this in your collection!

YSL Multi-usage Palette -This golden charm braclet contains a lip stick colour, lip gloss and highlight powder. While I think it would look super cool has a keychain on your handbag, I really don't think it's such a good idea to actually wear it. I thought you weren't supposed to put makeup near hot things (your wrist?)

MAC Holiday Luxuries -It's like Wow. The colours and products are so dazzling! I love these gift sets. Not only are they pretty to own, but they're actually useful!

MAC Holiday Luxuries Delight -Out of the collection, I think the eye palettes are the most fabulous. I've already bought this one (Trendy,) and am loving it! The colours are really versatile and I think we all know MAC makes excellent quality eyeshadow.

Bumble & Bumble Big Hair Set -60s hair-dos are big this season, and how to get that? It's all in this gift set, which includes the volume shampoo, conditioner, thickening spray and Do-it-all spray. I've tried the first three products and would definitely recommend them. The small bottle sizes are perfect to bring on Christmas vacations. Also, there are actually instructions on how to achieve that mystic perfect 'big hair' inside the box!

Philosophy Holiday Treats -Yum! Talk about sweetness! Philosophy makes absolutely delicious bath & body products. I usually don't care much for bath products, but after smelling a few Philosophy products over the weekend, I'm hooked! If you're stuck on what to get your sweet-tooth friend and love her enough not to buy her Dessert beauty products, then pick up something from Philosophy.

Philosophy The Gingerbread Man Suitcase -If you know which smell you like, then there are such box sets available. The three products included are the shower gel, shimmer body soufflé and lip shine -all in gingerbread flavour of course!

I'm loving the dior play and ysl necklace. Harrods Girl is so right. They'll look lovely hanging off my party bag! And the MAC collection is great too. I'm loving the "cool" eye palette. And the Bumble and Bumble kit sounds like an awesome buy. *hint*hint* to my secret admirers ;)

The diamont-studded dice by Dior is simply stunning, but it unfortunately is 50 dollars. I mean, it is a limited edition, but it simply contains a gloss. I don't feel like spending so much money for a gloss :(

And you now have me wanting to visit the MAC counter. Bad girls!

I think gift sets are pretty personal. Gift sets are usually available in a few other types, such as the MAC eye palette is available in Warm, Cool and Trendy. What exactly are the 'personal' gifts are you talking about?

It feels like DiorPlay is going to be a smashing Xmas hit!

The way they manage to enhance the Princess Ring they had launched last year is just great. I'm writing about it here:
