Spoil someone (or yourself) with these pretty finds
Coming into the festive season, we’re always looking for new ways to spoil those special someones in our lives or simply treat ourselves to something sparkly and new. When it comes to beauty products we want something that delivers, but we also have a sweet spot for chic packaging. Look no further: Here are five must-have products that will also pretty up your dresser in a flash.
Marc Jacobs Decadence One Eight K Edition EDP
We were already in love with the handbag-inspired packaging of the original Marc Jacobs Decadence fragrance, but it’s now had a gilded makeover and we can’t wait to add this glitzy spritz to our fragrance wardrobe, too. The scent is just as alluring as you remember it to be, with notes of Italian plum, iris, saffron, Bulgarian rose, jasmine and amber coming together to form a powdery and woody number that’s fitting for day or night wear. However, it’s the gold casing that has us turning heads in the office. Made from gold-tinted glass and inspired by 18 karat gold (so luxurious!), there’s also a thick gold chain and a black silk tassel to finish it all off. But be quick, as it is a limited edition buy, they’re bound to sell out fast.
Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer
Forget clunky hairdryers that are an absolute eyesore; Dyson’s Supersonic Hairdryer is small and compact in size, and features a sleek white or magenta design. It’s not just the look that’s cutting-edge, it’s highly effective in quickly drying and smoothing wet hair. It also lives up to the hype for other reasons: it comes with a styling concentrator that focuses the hot air in one direction, a diffuser that is ideal for preventing frizz in wavy or curly hair types, and it’s cool to touch, meaning no more burnt fingers or ears.
Givenchy Prisme Libre
Loose powder is something we can’t live with. Not only do we bake our concealer in place with it, but it also works a treat on mattifying foundation, especially around the T-zone. Givenchy’s Prisme Libre is a gorgeous multi-tonal prism that’s separated into four quadrants of finely-milled coloured powder. It’s almost too pretty to use! But the luminous results you’ll get from sweeping it over your eyes or using it as a highlighter are just too good to pass up.
Tom Ford Lips & Boys 50 Piece Set
Take your obsession with lip colours to the next level with a staggering range of not five, not ten... but fifty Tom Ford Lipsticks housed in a stylish Perspex case that’ll look super impressive on your dressing table. Each lipstick hails from Tom Ford’s Lips & Boys collection, where the shades are cheekily named after the designer’s favourite people.
W Cosmetics ReFa CARAT
Take your DIY face and body treatments to all new heights of at-home luxury with this handheld tool. The design is slick and super high-tech, and the results are just as impressive. It contours, refines and tightens the skin as well as increasing blood circulation. Much like a professional facial, this serious great-skin must-have fuses all of our favourite massage techniques in one waterproof design - you’ll get the contouring benefits from the platinum-coated rollers, while the micro-current technology can push your skin care deeper into your skin.
