It's Christmas Time In The City

Well it's not quite Christmas [yet] but stores are starting to put out their Christmas themed products. This is great if you want to get an idea of what sort of products you'll be able to buy for Christmas presents, get a head start on your Christmas shopping or just to start feeling legitimately excited that Christmas is just around the corner.

Today I thought I'd share with you some of my favourite beauty picks for Christmas gifts for friends & family. Perhaps you want to treat yourself too, and any of these would be perfect for that!

First up we have The Body Shop's range of Christmas delights. This year they have three ranges; Cranberry Joy, Vanilla Bliss & Ginger Spice. Each of these ranges contain products like Shower Gels, Room Mists, Hand Lotions, Lip Balms & more. Depending on your budget you could mix & match products from the ranges or buy one of the gift sets available. All these products have been repackaged this year & the redesign is adorable.

Featured Products:

-Vanilla Bliss Lip Balm.

-Vanilla Bliss Shower Gel.

-Cranberry Joy Hand Lotion.

-Cranberry Joy Heart Soap.

Now for something luxurious, how pretty are all these colours from Chanel? They've released their Collection Noel for 2012 & it features this eyeshadow quad which you see above, 3 limited edition glossimers, a nail colour, lipstick & more. Everything is packaged in Chanel's signature black & gold boxes. If you want to treat yourself or someone special in your life then this is the range to look at!

Featured Products:

-Levres Scintillantes Glossimer #347-Allegorie.

-Regard Signe De Chanel Quadra Eyeshadow. 

Next we have what I like to think of as the Queen of Christmas treats, Lush! Each Christmas Lush bring out Christmas themed products which include bath ballistics, shower gels, bubble bars, lip scrubs & more. They also have gift packs available including a cheaper Secret Santa alternative if you're stuck on what to buy someone for that. I've tried some of their Christmas products already & if there's one thing I recommend you buy for yourself or gift to others it's the bath bomb you see above. Shaped like a Christmas gift once opened an array of colours & glittery stars are released into your bathtub. It's magical....and don't forget to rattle the present before you use it in the bath!

Featured Products:

-Popcorn Lip Scrub.

-Angel's Delight Soap.

-Golden Wonder Bath Ballistic.

-Magic Wand Bubble Bar.

-Ponche Shower Gel.

-Snow Fairy Shower Gel

MAC have released their Fabulousness range just in time for Christmas. A wide range of products have been packaged into gift sets & would make a welcome addition to any makeup fanatic's life. The brushes are miniature & would be perfect for travel. Some of these sets are a little on the pricier side but this reflects the quality of MAC's products. How cute would these look on a vanity?

Featured Products:

-Fabulousness 5 Smoky Eyes (Pale Pink).

-Perfectly Plush Brush Kit Mineralize.

-Primped Out Look Bag: Luxurious Pink.

-Primped Out Look Bag: Drama Taupe.

Sometimes Christmas themed products don't appeal to everyone so here's some other ideas to consider for Christmas Gifts.

Featured Products:

-Dot by Marc Jacobs. This is the latest fragrance from Marc Jacobs & it is gorgeous for Summer if you're in the Southern Hemisphere. The scent is very fruity & not too heavy, just perfect really. If you're not wanting to purchase a full fragrance you could consider scented hand creams or even rollerball fragrances as alternatives.

-Laguna Bronzer & Orgasm Blush Duo by NARS. This duo contains two of NARS' cult products & would be perfect for Summer. The bronzer and blush look amazing together.

-Essie Nail Polish. Nail Polish is a perfect stocking filler & with a wide range of colours available there is something to please everyone.
