Five Christmas gifts for a Beauty lover

Today I wanted to create a little bit of gift giving anxiety - these five beauties won't leave anyone who is a beauty lover indifferent. Be warned, I already noticed that this post has very high craving levels! :)

1. Zoeva, Opulence collection
I love this brand. For years I've been following it and I'm passionate about the quality of it's brushes and shadows. This collection is very dreamy and for creating the most romantic and decadent unimaginable looks. The packaging is simply beautiful, those roses entangled in the seventeenth century, don't tell me it is not super inspiring! Inside the palette hides beautiful colors, from transition tones to the brightest helping to create very vibrant and daring looks. The complete Opulance collection comes in a beautiful box at a very interesting price, with a complete set of brushes, the palette of shadows and a palette of blushes. You can also buy it separately, but if you buy it together you will end up not paying for the blushes, which I find very interesting.

2.Hourglass, Ambient Lighting Palette Volume 3
This palette seems super versatile in terms of shades to use blush, contour or to illuminate. The quality and texture of the powder is exceptional, velvety as if it was butter. It's very bright without any obvious clustering of glitter particles . Highly recommended, and again a better price than to buy the product loose.

3. Diptyque Holiday Set of Three Mini Candles :
I admit that this is a an expensive treat, but it is because I have been crazy about Dyptique's candles ever since I came across the brand working at Liberty of London. I have a real passion for these candles. Those who have come to my studio would surely have noticed that I use them. And once finished, I reuse them for my brushes in the dressing table and they give a very chic touch to the space. This Christmas collection looks so beautiful, it is inspired by the constellations of mythological animals, such as the unicorn, the phoenix and the dragon. The fragrance of the three are different - Frosted Forest, Fiery Orange, Incense Tears.

4.    Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick Set Star-Studded Eight,
This long-lasting matte lipstick set by Stila is... love, pure love, end of story. I have never tried lipsticks of better quality (in the range of mattes and long-lasting). This set of eight beautiful lip tones, come out at a price of € 49.50, are minis. But I guarantee that you will be able to enjoy them all for a season. My favorite is the Kiss tone, a bright red that I love deeply when I want a classic red that lasts all day. They have been out of stock all through the Black Friday period, but you have them back in stock at Beauty Bay. (Yay!)

5. Bjork and Berries, Dark Rain Holiday Set.
I could not avoid to include a set as wonderful as this. And to be honest, Scandinavian cosmetics has won my heart - I love the concept that the cosmetic not only being of excellent quality, also looks great in your bathroom. At first glance, you may think that it is just a hand soap. But I guarantee that this set turns to your hand wash routine into a ritual of pure luxury. Just don't blame me if you can not use the supermarket hand gel anymore!
