Hello Beautyowls!

Christmas is around the corner, and like every year, the beauty market is bombarding us with new Christmas Edition Beauty products, bundles and (my favorite) beauty calendars. The selection is vast, I know! But here is a list of 5 Beauty Products that might be worth looking into as a Christmas gift, that combine quality, price and lots of makeup fun!

No1. STUNNA LIP PAINT By Fenty Beauty (24$)

A newly launched red lip by Rihanna’ s beauty line. Available via Fenty or Sephora, this matte lip promises 12 hours of wear time in a formula that is pigmented, long-lasting and universal. This sounds like an all in one product that immediately ended up in my basket! Besides who can resist a red lip, especially during the holiday season?!

Who is it for!

Everyone that likes to rock a long-wearing matte red lip. Most suitable for those that enjoy matte formulas and don’t have a big Problem with very dry and flaky lips.


No2. Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette (62$)

Attention!! This is a limited edition palette but sooooo worth the money. Adimitadle the color layout might not be on point, but the eyeshadows are unique and stunning. In this palette, you’ll get 24 Shades in three finishes metallics, mattes, and shimmering Pearls. Available via Sephora and Sephora Manor (for the Swiss crowd!). The formula in some shades is a bit powdery but very pigmented and long lasting! All in all, two thumbs up for this great eyeshadow palette from Kat Von D!

Who is it for!
For those of us that want to have creative freedom and endless makeup fun with a great quality product. Might not be ideal for beginners due to the random color layout.


No3. The DIOR Diorskin Forever Perfect Mousse (~55$)

Why is nobody talking about this?! This is a great foundation for those of us with oily or combination skin types. This foundation comes in a tube, in 8 shades (which is a bit unfortunate)! A medium coverage formula that has a very interesting lightweight and slippery yet silky texture. The formula stays matte, and only a tiny amount is needed. For even better results, try to gently exfoliate your skin before application. The product has a good lasting power, and I was surprised to see that it managed to control my oil production even without setting my makeup with a powder. Available in-store at selected Dior Counters or via Dior.

Who is it for!
Best for oily to combination skin types and those that are looking for a matte, lightweight foundation for every day with a medium coverage. Although this product claims to be appropriate for all skin types, I would not recommend it for those with drier skin, since the formula does tend to cling to dry patches.

No4. The Jaclyn Hill and Morphe Palette (38$)

If you are new to the makeup world, this would be a great palette to start with. 35 exciting eyeshadows and countless looks. The options and possibilities with this palette are endless. Also, the price-value is there, for 38$ you are getting creamy shades that are pigmented, easy to work with and stay put. The palette is Limited Edition, so grab it while you can! Available via Ulta.

Who is it for!
For Makeup beginners that want to have a great eyeshadow color collection in just one palette and Makeup collectors that just LOVE Makeup!


No5. The AERIN Fragrances (215$)

Did you know that fragrances are one of the most gifted items for Christmas!? If you are looking for a new scent, then you should try out the Tuberose Day & Night fragrances from Aerin. Two amazing scents that will not only make you smell amazing but feel good as well. These scents are complimenting each other perfectly. One for the daytime and one for the evening depending on your mood! Available via Estée Lauder Aerin and selected Aerin Counters for 215$ each (1.7oz).

Who is it for!
Every woman that loves to wear several scents and mix and match scents depending on the time of day and occasion. Also appropriate for women that like more unique, luxurious fragrances.


My Bonus Skincare Item (4.63$)

Ok, we got our lips and eyes covered, our complexion also got a treat, and on top of it we smell amazing, but what about our skin? To have all the above-mentioned products perform their best, you need to prepare your skin accordingly. The following product is affordable, easy to use and can be found on Amazon for only 4.63$ (10oz) plus if you love the scent of apricots then you are set! The Fresh Skin exfoliating apricot scrub from St. Ives makes your face and body feel and smell amazing!

Who is it for! For those that love the smell of apricots and want to have baby-soft skin. A great exfoliant (that is a bit more gritty) for creating a blank canvas before makeup and skincare product application. This will prolong your makeup wear time and the efficacy and penetration of your skincare products.
