Make-Up/Beauty • Products to Gift ... or simply treat yourself!


Following on from my last blog post with gift ideas for body, I have gathered up a collective of make-up products which have been kindly sent in to KelliLash HQ so if you are looking for a few last minute gift ideas, new inspiration for freshening up your own make-up bag or simply ideas of what to target in the sales ....  then have a little look at these beauties. 

This gives me the chance to showcase more of what I have trialling behind the scenes as I have been inundated with some amazing products that I had to tell you all about, some pr gifts, some purchased by myself but all winners
Makeup/Beauty Gift Ideas
MAKE-UP

Makeup gift ideas, MAC Glow Getter set
• MAC COSMETICS - The Glow Getter GOLD Set (£39/€43) (on sale here!)
MAC shall always be a go to for many as the brand appeals to all ages, caters to all spends and are always on trend. I have to say this set here is perfect for all because who doesn't want to glow at Christmas?! This face kit includes a mini size of their famous Skin Finish in the shade Whisper of Guilt, Goldlite Strobe Cream (30ml) and a travel sized 161SES Duo Fibre Face Brush ... and is in fact worth £61! There is also a PINK Version of this same set should you want a choice, or get both, for the price they are a fantastic deal. 
Makeup gift ideas, Bobbi Brown
Bobbi Brown has been as brand that I have got more and more into of late, having purchased many palettes, lipsticks and blushers myself over the last few months which I posted to my Instagram! BB just seem to do get everything right and I find myself really loving exploring their range and just having fun with it because after all that is what make-up should be about. 

Makeup gift ideas, Bobbi Brown Ace of Base
• BOBBI BROWN - Ace of Base Set (£54/€60) (here!)
I was actually in fact gifted this set by BB themselves for no reason at all. Nothing was asked of me but the fact that I LOVE what they sent over means of course I am going to show and tell you all about it. This beautiful Ace of Base set (brilliant name!) contains: the Vitamin Enriched Face Base (50ml), Hydrating Eye Cream (15ml) and Lip Balm Spf 15 all FULL sized and worth £94! All of their best selling hydrating skincare items and designed to restore and replenish radiance so your skin naturally glows. A amazing gift set and great value for money I think you would agree? I have been dying to try the famous Face Base so I am very excited to - I would ear mark this set for yourself! 

Makeup gift ideas, Bobbi Brown
• BOBBI BROWN - Beauty Brush Essentials (£69/€76) & Large Make-up Bag (£29/€32.50) 
Both kindly gifted to me but Bobbi Brown have such a great choice of brush sets online as well as all being sold individually; but the sets hold great savings of course. The quality of these brushes is superb and 100% worth the buy. I especially love gorgeous velvet case in which all these brushes are housed as it really does feel extra special and highly luxurious. 

The Large matte black faux leather makeup bag is amazing. Make-up bags are always too small, or maybe I have too much to out in them, who knows anyhow, this is gigantic and I LOVE it. If you need a decent sized make-up then you need this one. Simple as (here!).

Makeup gift ideas, Fenty Diamond Bomb
• FENTY Diamond Bomb Veil Powder (How many Carats?) (£33/€36.50) (here!)
As soon as I saw this Collection in Sephora, it was in my basket. The Diamond Bomb Veil powder is a diamond dusted highlighter that works as a 3D glitter veil to give you super sparkle for the face and body. I cannot actually capture just how gorgeous this powder and the compact are because it is just so sparkly ..... just like diamonds. Now I am not usually as glitter gal but there was something about this powder that lured me in. It is so finely milled  that it just disperses a super fine glitter to wherever you want it. Perfect for times when you want to be a grown up wearing glitter! This is a perfect gift for anyone because even the box is fancy pants sparkly ..... so maybe get two. 

The Gloss Bomb (£15/€17.50) lip comes in three shades and this one is Diamond Milk, basically the lip version of this powder and it gives your lips the shine of their life. The texture is gorgeous and how I like a gloss to be hence I am a little bit addicted and have been wearing this non-stop; it is just beautiful.


HAIR/NAILS

Makeup gift ideas, Gold Class brush
• AN INANCH LONDON, GOLD CLASS Thermal Super Brush (£30/€34) (here!)
Inanch London is a very trendy, stylish and popular London Hair Salon that has it's own range of products and I cannot wait to one day hopefully visit myself soon! Haircare vouchers and products are always a great gift idea for any occasion and if you want something a little different then how about this stunning gold brush! It may not seem like a typical gift but any brush that comes in it's own silk pouch is a worthy one. This is in fact a gold-plated hairbrush designed to speed up your blow dry and add volume and create texture without over heating and damaging your own hair. The vented shape allows for even distribution of hot air without stressing your hair out so this should help to improve the condition of your hair as you use it. You can use it on wet and dry hair and is great to brush through hair masks and detangle etc and on all hair types and extensions too. I have to say this is one clever yet fancy brush and I love it

Makeup gift ideas, Gold Class brush
Just as another idea, you could combine products from other ranges and make a little luxury hair hamper. If you want to stay fancy then the Bardou Dry Shampoo is one of my favourites as it adds a perfume to your hair as well as being an excellent dry shampoo that is not too powdery yet livens up your hair in an instant. My latest love is the Briogeo Deep Conditioning hair mask as it not only smells divine but is a really superb, hydrating hair mask. It is free from all nasties and can be used by all hair types including extensions. I can highly recommend trying these yourself should you be looking for new haircare. 

Makeup gift ideas, Kure Bazaar
Makeup gift ideas, Kure Bazaar
• KURE BAZAAR Nail Polishes (£15/€17) (here!) - L/R: Sienna, Or Rose, KELLY, Parisienne. 
A nail brand that I have been using for some time now and they are fantastic. Kure Bazaar are non-toxic vinyl effect nail lacquers with a 90% natural formula that actually preserves the vitality of you nails and their natural growth. They dry in no time, give your nails super shine and wear amazing well. They have so many stunning shades in their collection and for me they hold that fun factor of say OPI, but are much better in quality in my opinion. It is so nice to know that you can wear polish and have it treat your nails rather than harm it. I have quite a few shades that I adore but these are ones I chosen because they are so appropriate for now. I even have a shade named after me. KELLY, the bright pink! If you are yet to try these polishes then I highly recommend doing so plus they make a perfect gift and scream 'pamper night!'. 


ACCESSORIES
Makeup gift ideas
• BEAUTY BOOKS (here!)
You may notice a few pictured suggestions here as I love having beauty books on my shelf. Facepaint by Lisa Eldridge is the perfect gift for any make-up lover and Radiance by Hanna Sillitoe showcases recipes that all help towards healing your skin from within which is so important. I also recommend Younger by Dr Lancer and Pretty Honest/Pretty Iconic by Sally Hughes, all fantastic reads.


• LILIBETH Brow Shaper (pictured above!) (£14.95/€17 x2) (here!)
I have raved and recommended these time and time again as for me these are like nail files and hair bands, a necessity! If you don't own one then get one. You can read my full review about how to use them (here) but they make the perfect small gift or add on and the limited edition funky designs like this leopard print design really jazzes them up. 

LIPS - Tints/Treats 
Makeup gift ideas, Dr Lipp
• DR LIPP, Nipple Balm (£5.99) & Lip Tints (£6.99) (here on promotion!)
One product, 100 uses! Dr Lipp is the Multi-Award Winning Original Nipple Balm famed for it's muti-uses such as: chapped  lips, sore nips, softens cuticles, conditions eyelashes, works as a glitter glue, after sun, cheek shine, healing sore noses, helping babies bottoms, a shoe shiner ... to name a few! I am a long term fan of this product as it was always a top seller in store when I worked at Space NK. The magic is, it's medical grade Lanolin, a natural moisturiser that is basically the Rolls Royce of Lanolin. It is thick, balmy, hydrating and if you have dry skin anywhere then you really should have one of these on you at all times. There are also tinted versions should you solely want to use on your lips. Dr Lipp is a mini must-have especially as it is so affordable for all that this little tube of magic does for you!

Makeup gift ideas, By Terry 
 • BY TERRY GEM GLOW Baume de Rose Mini Tree Decoration 3g (£20/€22) ((here!))
As already mentioned in my post here, another lip option is the highly luxurious lip balm from By Terry, Baume de Rose; made even more irresistible in the form of a mini tree decoration. A perfect small gift or handbag size for yourself. 

Makeup gift ideas, Rodin Lipstick
 • RODIN x Vanessa Traina (£28/€31) (here!)
Rodin is a brand I have never tried before but the stunning packaging had my interest right away. These two items, kindly sent over are from a new Limited Edition collection, a collaboration with fashion stylist, Vanessa Traina, whose fascination with florals inspired this line. The lip products may look super bright but they are in fact very sheer and have been designed to resemble the effects of crushed petal stains. The lipstick comes in three shades and I have Dahlia, this gorgeous red. They give your lips a soft stain as opposed to full on colour and feel super hydrating as they are in fact infused with Rodin's signature Jasmine and Neroil oils. These for me feel like a glossy lip tint and are sheer yet very buildable but look super pretty on. If you are scared of red then I feel this would help you as it will ease you into seeing more colour on yourself but in the most subtle of ways. The painted design and attention to detail is so beautiful, you shall definitely want to show this one off in your makeup bag. 


Make up ideas, Rodin
The Lip and Cheek Oil (£25/€27) (here!) in the shade Granantum is very glossy yet very hydrating with no stickiness or tackiness whatsoever. It has been designed to give a healthy flushed look to your lips and cheeks using Safflower seed and Sunflower seed oils. It is very light weight and just adds a subtle tint of colour and brightness so again a great one for those scared of brights but want a hint of colour. If you suffer from dry lips then this will help being intensely nourishing whilst perking up your complexion at the same time. Keep your eyes peeled to my IG to see them in action! 
Makeup gift ideas
All great smaller gift ideas from some amazing brands which I thank for contributing to this post so that I could show case them in all their glory. 

If you fancy treating yourself, then I have a few more suggestions to follow featuring some of my own recent purchases that I think you may just love as much as I am. 



Enjoy shopping!
