Yup, it’s that point again: that time when we wonder where December has disappeared to and why we can’t be like those other people who plan their Christmas gift lists in August and All this is bought and wrapped by mid- October. But if you’re like me (or Mr. AMR, who doesn’t even think about gifts until the 22nd) fear not: I’ve got you covered with some easy-to-order beauty gifts for every budget.

I’ve worked with Beauty Pie for years, but I still feel that same excitement when I see their special pink box arrive. Beauty Pie constantly launches new and innovative products – from super-serums to beautifully scented candles – and it’s always a pleasure to unwrap items from pale pink tissue paper.
It goes without saying that any beauty lover would be over the moon to get a little bit of Beauty Pie in their Christmas stocking and that’s why I’ve picked out some absolute crackers.

OK, now that you’ve heard my mini TED talk on beauty pie shopping rules, here are my gift ideas:
The first is short and sweet and perfect: The Unlipstick Trio In nothing on, This little set contains a recycled aluminum “Keep It” lipstick case that can be used over and over again with whatever unlipstick shade you love; Then own lipstick and matching Wondergel lip liner. Unlipstick gets its name because it looks like you’re wearing nothing at all—it’s so light and clear—but it gives lips a chic, natural-looking stain. Like a speckled bottom lip colour. It’s so beautiful and this shadow, nothing on, is probably my favorite. Just infinitely wearable.

if you wish really Give someone a wonderful introduction to what Beauty Pie makeup has to offer then the new Patti Dubroff kits are great. A complete “look in a (velvet) box” includes a variety of makeup items and some of them you might not otherwise think of trying or using, so this means you get to discover new products and techniques. Huh. I love the Perfect Red Lip Kit.
For the sister who’s already a red lip addict or the best friend who’s hooked on makeup, this is an absolute delight. The included eye palette is also pleasingly neutral and not too shimmery, so you can use it all year long and includes a glitter eyeliner, a glittery highlighter, a brown volumizing mascara and a double-ended eye brush, as well as all There are also important red lips. Crayon.
That’s a lot of product for £150, but of course, it’s Beauty Pie, so it’s not really worth £150:

If makeup feels too personal and you are nervous about choosing shades then there can be no better gift than a set of premium quality makeup brushes. So many people have no idea about makeup brushes and how they can transform the way you do your face. Does your mom still apply eyeshadow with those little foam applicators? Does your cousin complain that her foundation is patchy yet still applies it using an old sponge? Does your aunt (running out of relatives here) make her eyes look like proverbial p*sssholes in the snow because she applies liner on and around her eyes without blending?
It is (of course) an investment. they should be a Very Good aunt / cousin / mother. But the Luxury Makeup Brush Set is a problem-solver and I don’t think anyone will be disappointed with ten finely crafted brushes that blend, buff, and perfect the finish. I especially love the nice selection of skin-finishing brushes—sometimes you only get a token flat-top foundation brush and the rest are eye brushes—and the light, fan brush for applying whispers of setting powder. Successful.

Let’s move on to the safest option for fragrance and gifting, which is always home fragrance. Beauty Pie candles are great – long burn, modern styling and scents that are sometimes quite quirky and unusual. Here’s your “Basic Figure” and not the “Ordinary Orange”!
My favorite is Tobacco, Cedarwood and Vanilla. It smells like an old library or reading room in one of those London clubs, with its wood-panelled walls and leather chairs. Some tobacco candles are heavy on things like oud and I find them a bit heavy and aftershave for the home, but this one: bingo! It’s very smoky and sexy and the vanilla gives it a sweet edge that keeps it from smelling like an expensive man. Not that there’s anything wrong with being an “expensive guy”, I just don’t want him quietly walking around the house when I can’t see him.

Now there are fragrances and so many beautiful options for the skin. Beauty Pies doesn’t do completely straight perfumes; There’s always a surprise kick of something here and something else there. Orange AbsoluteFor example, summer cologne has the light and refreshing gusto but with a warm, woody base that keeps it sexy and earthy. walk in the woods Against a rather unusual background of a winter forest is a cashmere blanket of a fragrance with a powdery amber note. There is nothing straightforward about these fragrances!
