Get Christmas all Wrapped up with Gifts for all Budgets
It’s nearly Christmas, which usually means it’s soon time to brave the crowds and head to the shops. Why not save yourself the hassle this year and do all your Christmas shopping from the comfort of your own living room? Slippers on, hot mug of cocoa in hand; online shopping is bliss – more so when it’s for beauty products. After all, what woman doesn’t like a spot of pampering? But don’t just think of others; Christmas should surely also be about treating yourself. Thankfully, there’s loads of great make-up treats on offer from US brand Stila Cosmetics during the festive season.
Whether you’re a careful or carefree shopper, there’s guaranteed to be something well within your budget. Packaged in simple cardboard cases, Stila’s individual eye shadow pans are both environmentally friendly and kind to your pocket. At just £5.99 (more than £5 off the RRP), Stila Eye Shadows come in a range of shades and finishes and make great stocking fillers for any make up junkie. Add some sparkle and shimmer to your make-up bag with one of the brand’s popular eye palettes, or opt instead for a stunning Stila Lip Glaze Holiday Collection set, at only £19.99 for 8 mini lip glosses. Wear a different lip colour every day of the week, keeping the spare one on standby in case you want to switch up your lippie for a night out! Stila really do think of everything.
Prefer to keep lips natural and nude? Keep lip colour minimal and focus (no pun intended) on your eye make-up. Dramatic eyes are a key look this winter, so get hold of the Stila Smudge Pot Holiday Collection, which comes with four eyeliners which also double up as shadows, and a handy brush. If your budget won’t stretch that far, the Stila’s Kajal Eyeliner is definitely worth a look. Define your eyes the easy way with these beautiful eye pencils. Available at £8.99 each, the kajal eyeliner in the shade topaz apricot nude makes a welcome change from the usual black shades on the market.
Still stuck for gift ideas? How many times have you heard your mum/sister/best friend (delete as appropriate) complain about the amount of products they have to cart around in their handbags to achieve that all-important flawless, ‘put together’ look. With Stila One Step Foundation, your friends and family can ditch the additional products and just use this. Available in a range of shades to match almost any skin tone, the foundation makes full to the brim make-up bags a thing of the past. With this product, there’s no need for a separate foundation, powder, concealer and primer – it does the same job all on its own. The skin-loving formula combines the benefits of four complexion-perfecting products with 100% mineral pigments to deliver high performance and a great finish. Try it for yourself and why not slip it into your mum’s Christmas stocking too. She’ll thank you for it.
