You may have read my Boots Christmas wishlist post recently which was the start of all things festive. A couple of weeks ago I received a couple of the gift sets I mentioned (Christmas comes early in my household!) and I have been trying out some dazzling Boots Christmas Gifts. This particular set of products are perfect for the Christmas party season ♥
The French Connection Mini Hat Box Set
The whole French Connection Christmas gift collection is just amazing this year, the packaging looks so luxurious and in neutral tones for a classic touch. The mini hat box has all the best pampering essentials to nourish, polish and bathe your skin leaving it with the soft scent of vanilla, oriental wood and florals. Mini versions of the French Connection body butter, body spray, body polish, body wash and body polisher make up this perfect gift set.
Fearne Eye Collection
Fearne Cotton’s debut collection for Boots, is quirky with a vintage floral print, making up the rock-chic style of Fearne Cotton herself. With four shimmery metallic eye crayons in olive, mauve, bronze and dusky pink which doubles up as a great highlighter. Not forgetting the black felt eyeliner, to create the dramatic rock-chic flick. The eye crayons work great as chunky eye liner, all over the eyelid as eye-shadow and even make a great base for eye-shadow.
Seventeen Deconstructed Lash Laquer
Dramatic lashes at this time of year are a must! For blacker, fully loaded lashes paint this glossy lacquer over mascara as a top coat. The very fine brush is perfect for wrapping the lacquer around each eyelash. Follow me on instagram to see pictures of this very soon! Perfect for Christmas parties and festive nights out!
Umberto Giannini Glam Hair Backcomb in a Bottle – yes you’ve seen this in my June beauty favourites post but it is back again for the Christmas wishlist! This is the must-have product for big hair, simply spray into the area you want to backcomb then jujj! If you have quite thick hair try using a toothbrush to jujj your hair into a backcomb. For fine hair, a large paddle brush works wonders then tidy up fine hairs with a toothbrush. If you read my September favourites you’ll know what I’m talking about!
For subtle hint of colour in a vibrant shade, this high shine lip crayon is perfect as it’s sheer when applied. This shade is called ‘daydreamer’ it’s moisturising and lightweight when I glide it on. It’s also great as a very subtle gloss over my usual lipstick.
As you know I love a bit of shimmery highlighter under the brow bone and above my cheekbones. It enhances the cheekbones, illuminating with a hint of shimmer. As it’s a stick, it fits in your clutch perfectly for nights out.
This mascara is said to ‘last through whatever life throws at you!’ meaning it’s smudge proof, flake proof and even tear proof. It certainly lives up to what it is claimed to be! It does not budge, if I am honest I haven’t tried if it is tear proof yet but maybe during the excitement of Christmas there will be some happy tears! All these party favourites are now available on Boots 3 for 2 Mix & Match.
