The Beauty Junkie – Christmas Gift Guide Day 3

This year was definitely my year for beauty discoveries, and so I’ve selected a few of my favourites to share with you, just in case you’re in need of a little last minute gift inspiration…

This month was definitely the time for glam discoveries like the Stila Glitter & Glow range and the Balmain X L’Oreal collaboration, but the entire UK blogging and beauty industry rejoiced in October when Glossier finally made it to the UK. Earlier this year I discovered Herbivore when guest blogging for Resident store in Frome (they have SUBLIME taste, I challenge you to visit their website and not find something you love), and Lily England was an Instagram find because of COURSE I was drawn to their copper and white colour palette. Last but certainly not least, Neal’s Yard. I first discovered their Geranium & Orange collection in Covent Garden some ten years ago, and so anything from their range has been a firm fixture on my Christmas list ever since. They really do create some of the most beautiful, rich scents, which always make me feel like an extra in Downton.

Everywhere I have featured is still offering delivery before Christmas, so you can still get those stockings filled with some gems, if you’re quick.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this year’s Christmas Gift Guides series, watch out later in the week for a Christmas-inspired piece of fiction.
