When it comes to Valentine's Day (or any other special occasion), there is nothing worse than feigning happiness in order to pretend that you have loved the gift you've been given. Flowers, chocolates, heart-shaped balloons and cheesy cards are cute but if there's one thing a beauty lover will truly appreciate, it is everything that's on their makeup wishlist. From limited edition gift sets to one-of-a-kind perfume bottles, here are some unique presents for all the different kinds of beauty lovers in your life. Whether your (girl)friend is a serious eyebrow product hoarder or just loves lipsticks, here are some ideas that will bump you up on the best (boy)friend of the year list...
Every beauty lover knows about Carolina Herrera's iconic fragrances and this one is another winner! The first-ever heel-shaped perfume bottle ever made, this one houses a warm floral scent that smells as good as it looks. The jasmine scent isn't overpowering because it is accompanied by notes of tonka beans and cocoa. Instead, the mix together smells a little mysterious and a little sweet.
Every true-blue skincare lover knows and (most likely) loves Pixi Beauty's Glow Tonic. This one is a safe bet to gift because the pack of three includes the Milky Tonic, a hydrating milk-infused formula that soothes skin, the Retinol Tonic, a formula is full of antioxidants and the aforementioned cult-favourite Glow Tonic. We know a winner when we see one!
These three lip and cheek crayons are a multitasking girl's dream. The trio comes in varied shades and textures: a glossy nude, a matte intensely pigmented rosy hue and a rustic red shade that is totally kissproof!
If she loves all things body care, she is going to love this gift set! The products are packed with notes of sparkling champagne, crystal peonies & almond crème—it basically smells like a dream! This set is complete with a shower gel, body lotion and mist, everything you need to layer your scent and make it last all day!
If indulging in ayurvedic beauty formulas is something she loves, this 10-product Kama Ayurveda kit is an absolute steal! It includes pure rose and vetiver water face mists (both hydrate skin and balance its pH level), gentle face scrub and cleanser (exfoliate skin and cleanse it gently), a day and night cream, a face oil (brightens skin) and a face mask (boosts radiance) as well as a hair treatment (boosts growth).
This specially curated box by MyGlamm is as safe as it gets, especially if the receiver is a serial makeup lover. We love how it has everything from base products to highlighter to the coveted Manish Malhotra Beauty makeup products. With a box like this, she will be spoilt for choice when it comes to picking beauty favourites!
