Many women enjoy receiving beauty products as Christmas gifts so choosing them is a relatively safe bet. But if you’re shopping at a Shoppers Drug Mart beautyBOUTIQUE or Sephora, you may soon be overwhelmed by the selection of cosmetics. That’s why I thought I would share some of my favourite beauty products I’ve tried this fall. I think any of these products would make great gifts for the makeup lover on your Christmas list. So please read further to find out about my selection of the best beauty gifts for women for Christmas:
Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette
The Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette is one of my favourite beauty products for fall 2018 due to the gorgeous selection of eyeshadow colours – there are colours from every palette! These eyeshadows are highly pigmented yet unlike some other eyeshadows, they blend out very easily. That’s one reason the Born to Run palette is one of my favourite beauty products for Christmas: because of their beautiful and easy application and blending ability. It doesn’t matter if her eyes are blue, brown or hazel because there are several shades that will suit each of those eye colours. There is also a built-in mirror so that she can apply her eyeshadow on the run. Buy the Urban Decay Born To Run Eyeshadow Palette for $59 at beautyBOUTIQUE by Shoppers Drug Mart.
Stila Shimmer and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Vivid Sapphire
If the woman on your Christmas list likes to command attention, she’ll probably enjoy wearing Stila’s new Shimmer and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow in Vivid Sapphire. This deep blue metallic shade is infused with glitter to provide a dramatic look.
The new bolder colours, which also include Vivid Garnet, Vivid Amethyst, Vivid Jade, Vivid Smoky Quartz and Vivid Labradorite have a shimmery texture. You can apply one coat on the lower lids for daytime or apply more coats for a more intense evening look. Stila Shimmer and Glow Liquid Eye Shadow is $31 and is available at Sephora or beautyBOUTIQUE by Shoppers Drug Mart.
Jade Roller from Province Apothecary
Jade rollers have become super popular these days – they’re all over Instagram – although they have been used by Chinese women as a beauty tool for centuries. This Dual Action Jade Roller from Province Apothecary is great not only for lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness, but the gentle massage improves blood circulation making you appear more rested.
The studded end can be used to tone and firm your skin while the smooth end is cooling and reduces tension. It’s also great to use your Jade Roller after applying your serum because it helps the serum absorb better into your skin. The jade roller is $44 and can be purchased from Province Apothecary online.
Korres Wild Rose Foaming Cream Cleanser
The Wild Rose Foaming Cream Cleanser is an exceptional cleanser since it doesn’t dry your skin like other cleansers. Because it contains Wild Rose Oil that is a natural source of Vitamin C, as well as Super Vitamin C, this cleanser not only removes makeup, but nourishes the skin and reduces the appearance of fine lines. Plus the rose scent smells wonderful! You only need to use about the size of a quarter so this cleanser will take her well into next summer. Purchase Korres Wild Rose Foaming Cream Cleanser, $32 (200 ml), at beautyBOUTIQUE by Shoppers Drug Mart.
