Christmas gifting treasures for your loved ones

Wednesday, 4th November, 2020 2:58pm

This week I am going to continue to show you some of the best value in makeup, giftsets and bundles to buy for your beauty-obsessed loved ones.

The ultimate queen of glam, Huda, just launched her most decadent pallette to date. Take your nude infatuation to new heights and embrace your naughty side with Huda Beauty’s new 18-well eyeshadow palette, The Naughty Nude Eyeshadow Palette (€66.95).

A sultry re-imagination of the iconic Huda Beauty Nude palette, this new racy wardrobe of 18 captivating smoky shades and innovative textures is the great for creating modern nude looks, sexy smoky eyes and fresh lids.

Naughty Nude is loaded with richer, smokier shades and versatile neutrals that will give you daytime dew or after-dark drama in the sweep of a brush to take your lids from nice to deliciously naughty in seconds. As well as delicious new shades, Huda knew that makeup lovers were lusting after more than just an updated colourway, so as always, she has delivered with three new innovative shadow textures.

Matte marbles, a metallic marble, and a never-seen-before pearl gloss hybrid, join Huda’s cult-favourite mattes and metallics to transform the nude beauty landscape. Huda understands that makeup is as therapeutic as it is empowering, and these new textures will make dressing your eyes just as fun and emboldening as the final look. The textures in a cohesive colour union have been carefully designed to be used individually for a striking effect or layered together for alluring looks.

Nima Brush has launched its much anticipated Nima Love collection, a greatest hits trio of brush sets compiling bestseller tools from the extended range - Nima Love, Nima Magic and Nima Queens - each set with its own assortment of brushes.

The Nima Queens is a full base contour set with all you need to ace your base and get your foundation sleek; the Nima Love is a face and eye structure set to sharpen those angles and fluff those cheeks and the Nima Magic is a quick ‘everything’ set for people who like a quick, no fuss approach when it comes to applying their makeup.

Each set from the Nima Love Collection is priced at €34.99 each or all three can be purchased as a bundle for €95, saving €10. The quality of Nima is something I admire. The company strikes the right balance between price and quality and is an Irish company.

Your skincare must have set from Ella and Jo include the Squeaky Clean Brush Cleanser, 3-in-1 Hyaluronic Skin Mist and Hydrating Hyaluronic Serum, all for €80. A must have for the skin lover in your life, these are all full-size products and Ella and Jo just celebrated its third birthday, too. It’s another phenomenal Irish success story.

Feel ultra-clean with Dermalogica’s Cleanse & Glow to Go kit (€37). The kit includes: PreCleanse - go from a bold state to a clean slate with this best-selling deep-cleansing, makeup busting oil. It glides on skin and works quickly and effectively to rid you of even long wear makeup.

Special Cleansing Gel - the number one cleanser is the perfect way to achieve your cleanest skin ever without stripping your skin’s natural moisture. Banish that tight post foam sensation and get great skin in the process. It is a win-win. And finally, the kit includes Daily Microfoliant- Dermalogica’s number one powder exfoliant.

Declaré Switzerland’s range of Christmas gift sets not only include great, hard-working products for various skin types, but also body care products and all beautifully packaged for the discerning beauty lover out there. Gift boxes are priced from €29.95 to €120, making excellent Christmas gifts for all budgets.

Among my personal picks for the brand are Q10 and Eye Firming Cream (€70), the Happy Body three-piece set is €35 and the three-piece Body Lotion, Shower Gel and Hand Cream is €58. All gift sets are beautifully packaged and suitable for all skin types.

Irish brand Holos has a lot to offer the green queens in your life. The sustainable brand built around the ethos of holistic beauty has a range of sets for every skincare lover, even the more problematic ones.

The Teen Queen Gift Set includes Good Morning Face Wash, Love Your Skin Floral Toner and Good Morning Face Cream for €46. The Skin Savvy Queen Gift Set includes This is More Facial & Eye Serum, Love Your Skin Anti-Ageing Facial Oil and Love Your Skin Face Cream for €78.
