We have a bit of a secret beauty obsession so it felt only right to put together our top picks for Christmas 2017. We’ve split it into three categories: Save (£15 or less) Spend (£30 or less) and Splurge (£30+). This list has been curated for the beauty lovers or novices all of the products have been tried & tested – team Sage Joan can confirm they are all wonderful.
The Ordinary, Coverage Foundation – with a waitlist of 25,000 people upon its debut it’s not easy to get your hands on this beauty. For only £6 you get a medium to full coverage foundation that hides the bits you want to hide whilst leaving a natural finish to the skin.
L’Oreal True Match Highlighter – We’ve used this pretty much everyday in 2017 and we’ve only made our way through two tubes. It’s generous size gives you real value for money as the pigmented highlighter goes such a long way.
Real Techniques Face Brush – We’ve watched the Pixiwoo tutorials for years and can’t get enough of their products. The expert face brush is by far our favourite (we have 3).
Charlotte Tilbury, Hollywood Lips in Screen Siren – Charlotte Tilbury is one of our favourite brands and her new range of lip products are just dreamy. This punchy red is ideal for the Christmas season and we can’t wait to wear it out.
Zoeva Rose Gold Eye Palette – Zoeva eye palettes are really underrated in our opinion. For less than £20 you get 10 really wearable shades. We love the formulation of these shadows & can think of so many looks to see us through the winter.
Yves Saint Laurent Mascara & Lipstick Gift Set – YSL is always a great gift to give, the dreamy gold packaging is so luxe and makes any gift from them really special. This set of a mascara & handbag sized red lipstick is ideal for Christmas time.
Charlotte Tilbury – The Hollywood Contour Wand Duo – We were so excited when Charlotte Tilbury launched her highlight & contour wands. They are perfect for a polished Christmas party look and so so easy to use.
Brazilian Bum Bum Cream – When we got a sample of this a few months ago we really didn’t want to love it due to it’s price. However the nutty yet holiday evoking scent along with a beautiful buttery formula. It definitely features on our list to Santa this year.
Anastasia Beverly Hills, Highlighter Palette – We love ABH and her powder highlighters are some of our favourites. This would make such a wonderful Christmas present to any beauty lover who’s a fan of the glow.
