T’is the season to be jolly, not stressed-out frantically searching for last minute gifts and stocking fillers. Here are three beauty gift sets that she’ll not only love but are available in the Boots 3 for 2 deal this Christmas, so they’re affordable too…
SEVENTEEN is a seriously underrated beauty brand sold exclusively at Boots. The Sparkle & Shine Collection contains 6 x 2ml Lip Lustre lip glosses in sheer pink, peach and nude shades. The non-sticky formula gives lips an intense high gloss finish that leaves them looking plumper and beautifully kissable. This set is a great way to introduce her to the world of SEVENTEEN cosmetics and it’s only £6.
If you were also one of the unlucky few that didn’t manage to grab The Whole Glam Lot suitcase of goodies from Soap & Glory when it was the half price star of the week, I feel your pain. Nevertheless, Soap & Glory have some great little stocking fillers still available including the Full Sparks set now reduced from £6 to only £4.80. You’ll definitely have to act fast to get your hands on this little guy. Wrapped up in their signature pink tissue paper is a super-plumping mini Sexy Mother Pucker Lip Gloss in Candy Queen (4ml) and a travel-sized bottle of their award-winning The Righteous Butter (50ml) with added ‘Swoondust’ which adds a golden shimmer to the skin. This would make a perfect gift for any party-lover over Christmas and New Year.
Finally, we have a gift set that is a little more on the pricey side but is breathtakingly beautiful. The Reiss Nail Paint WE16 Collection retails for £20 and contains four 8ml ‘Nail Paints’ in Rose, Gold, Burgundy and Nude.
Reiss isn’t a clothing brand I’ve purchased from before and wouldn’t necessarily relate to the beauty industry but they have really nailed it with this collection. The gift set feels heavy and expensive, the faux marble and gold leaf packaging is dreamy and the selection of shades is stunning. Their formula is surprisingly high quality, long-lasting and opaque so this isn’t a case of style over substance.
If you’re on a budget and/or are seriously running out of time this Christmas, a visit to Boots is really a no-brainer. Nowhere on the high street can compete with its selection of affordable high-quality beauty gifts. It’s hard to believe that all these festive goodies could be bought, wrapped and tucked safely under the tree for only 26 quid.
