Posted by: on Nov 21, 2012 | No Comments

It’s getting to that time of year when the bog-standard, year-round make-up just won’t do. Luckily, we’ve created a top 5 list of the most luxurious, glamorous and festive beauty products to get you ready for the party season.

1. Yves Saint Laurent’s La Laque Couture – Première Niege Top Coat (No. 33)

This gorgeous nail varnish from the new Christmas range adds an iridescent finish to light and dark base colours alike, allowing you to customise each and every manicure. As the name suggests (‘First Snow’), it adds a sparkly (but not tacky), magical finish to your Christmas look.

2. Chanel’s Rouge Allure Velvet Luminous Matte Lip Colour (307 L’Impatiente)

Matte, wine-coloured lipstick has powered its way to one of the top autumn beauty trends, and this colour by Chanel is the perfect Christmassy hue. Moisturising but not sticky, it provides long-lasting colour – perfect for the party season!

3. The Body Shop’s Smoky Eye Palette (Smoky Copper)

No Christmas look would be complete without a touch of sparkle to your make-up, and this stunning palette allows you to create a sophisticated, yet warm and golden smoky eye. These colours flatter all skin tones and ages, and the palette includes a mirror and two mini brushes, making it the perfect stocking filler.

4. Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Brick Compact (24 Karat)

Inject a revitalising glow back into tired, winter skin with this fantastic skin highlighter by Bobbi Brown. The gorgeous collection of colours enhance any blusher or bronzer, and each colour doubles up as an eyeshadow too, making this a good-value product and make-up bag staple!

5. L’Oréal Million Lashes Excess (Black)

A good mascara is worth investing in, and this one by L’Oréal will exceed expectations. Create the fake lash effect with no clumps by sweeping on a couple of layers – without waiting between applications.
