Girls Christmas Gift Guide

Hi Guys,

I realised earlier that I forgot to say that Im taking part in Blogmas! I took part last year and it didn't go as well as I planned due to being so busy! Ive learnt my lesson though and have gone into planning overdrive so hopefully I can do it this year! If you don't know, Blogmas is where you Blog every day in December, You can see yesterday's post 'Whats on my Tree?' HERE, for the start of Blogmas! (Have I got the record for the most mentions of Blogmas in a paragraph haha!)
I thought I'd get the first of my Christmas Gift Guides up, look out for one for guys very soon!
For the Youtube lover!

Tanya Burr Nail Trio 1 £14.99 - HERE
I love the Tanya Burr Varnishes, I have polishes by much higher end brands that chip so quickly compared to these. Tanya has released five sets of Trios to pick from, two of which contain exclusive polishes. This one I have here is one of them, It includes a baby pink in Mini Marshmallows, rose gold glitter in Fairytale and a glossy black in the shape of Dark Magic! Ive got a review not only on this trio, but another one of Tanya's new sparkly additions HERE, theres also some swatches if you'd like a closer look! If you have a Youtube/ Nail/ Beauty fanatic to get a present for this year, Im sure this is something that'll go down as a massive hit!

Real Techniques Nic's Picks £29.99 - HERE
Sam and Nic, Youtube Make up artist sensations, have the very so popular line of Real Technique brushes. Due to the success of Sam's Picks set last year, Nic has released her own, all duo fibre brushes! This set also includes three exclusives, with the Cheek Brush, Angled Shadow Brush and Eyeliner Brush. It also includes two favourites from other sets, the Powder Brush and Base Shadow Brush. These brushes are fantastic as they apply the product well, but because of the duo fibre aspect it doesn't pack it on. This is fantastic for anyone who likes quite a natural sheer make up look, or who is just starting out. They're fantastic quality for the price and will last for ages! Even for the make up fanatic in the family these will be loved!
Accessory Fanatic!

Illamasqua Makeup Bag £20 - HERE
I couldn't not add a new piece from Illamasqua, from their brand new Christmas collection, Facets! This is a lovely quality, make up bag which is perfect for anyone on the go, as its the perfect size to throw in your handbag, Due to the quality of it, its very robust. As well as keeping all those lipsticks, a palette, mascara's and eyeliners! It may look small but its very deceiving, its a bit like the Dr Who Tardis! Embossed with Illamasqua and a lovely golden Illamasqua Logo on the zip too! See it in action HERE with lots of other Illamasqua goodies!

Yankee Candle Medium Candle in Christmas Eve £16.99 - HERE
Yankee candles are extremely popular at the moment and are a lovely present for the interior design lover in the family. They have so many scents, in lots of different size containers, they currently have their popular Christmas range out, Which includes this one in Christmas Eve, its a scent that makes you think of Christmas, with quite a warm scent thats not too spicy, you can smell a fruity side to it too. Its very traditional without being too strong. This medium sized candle will burn for between 65 to 90 hours too!
High end Goodies!

Pixi Endless Silky Eye Pencil Kit £16.50 - HERE
Sometimes it can be difficult to buy someone make up, as you might not know what colours they prefer or they may not have tried a wide range. Thats why I love this little kit, They're all very wearable shades, but offer a wide selection to have a good play about with. They're fantastic quality and are super soft and creamy. The pigmentation is fantastic and they last really well, even on my oily eyelids! The kit includes five shades, from a pink to black, even purple and green, as well as a brown and a little mini sharpener too! A full review on these is avaliable HERE.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette £56 - HERE
 This caused a stir in the blogger world, this amazing finishing/highlight powder palette, is the most expensive thing in the guide, but oh is it worth it. It makes you squeal with delight every time you open it. The Ambient Lighting Powders are to Finnish your make up and give you a really nice glow,  it diffuses the light as it hits the skin and almost blurs it too. You can also use them as highlighters too, It includes the shades Dim Light and Ambient Light, plus an exclusive for the palette Incandescent light and has been designed for all skin tones too!
For a Pamper!

100g Lush Christmas Shower Gels £3.75 to £4.75 - HERE
For the Lushie in the family, I had to include these, they're fantastic not only as a present, or even as a stocking filler. They also come in bigger sizes too, if you'd prefer something more. With Lush releasing two new scents this year in the form of Hot Toddy, a spicy scent with added shimmer too! Then also Snow White, based on the fresh crisp apple scent of their Snow White Bath Ballistics. Then who can forget the returning favourites, Rose Jam, the floral rose scented one of the bunch. Then for the sweet tooth, Snow Fairy, Possibly Lushes all time most popular Shower Gel! There's something their for every taste!

I hope this has given you some inspiration if your just starting your Christmas shopping, (Like me!) or if you're just looking for last minute bits and pieces!
