This year I have put together a Christmas gift guide, they could be presents for a family member, a friend or even a treat for yourself!

I have put them into categories the best I can and I have put very short reviews on each product. If you want to know more about any of the products tweet me @sarahtrademark and we can have a chat 🙂


Hands and Nails


Library Of Flowers Hand Cream

Library Of Flowers Hand Cream

£29

Everyone loves a good hand cream. This one comes packaged in a cute little box with a cool design on. The hand cream smells great and it absorbs into your hands quickly. It has a great non greasy formula and is perfect to carry around with you!

Disney Quotes hand set

Disney Quotes hand set

£7.99

This set contains:

Cheeky cherry moisturising hand sanitizer

Cheeky cherry hand cream

Re-usable hand warmer

The scent is so lovely and this set is great for any Disney fan. I really like the hand warmer as it is handy to have in these colder months. I always like to carry a hand cream and sanitizer in my bag so this set is great for anyone that does the same.

Chameleon glitter

Chameleon glitter

Sparkle dust £4.50

Glitter £3.75

Both products are designed for your nails. The glitter can be used on top of polish or even mixed in to create a really lovely glitter nail. The sparkle dust is similar as it can be put on top of polish or mixed in but this is a lot finer and can be used to create that iridescent mirror look when placed on top of polish. They are both great value as you get a lot in the bottle and they are also easy to use. They can be mixed with normal polish or even with gel polish.

Deborah Lippmann Ice Princess

Deborah Lippmann Ice Princess

£17

This fab due contains two complementing colours in this beautiful icy packaging. I have always been a fan of glitter polishes so this set is great. The pink is a very natural colour but you can really bring it to life with the glitter on top, either over the whole nail or as an icy ombre. I find this brand last well and doesn’t chip too easy. A set like this is great for any nail polish fan.


Impress - Press On Manicure

Impress – Press On Manicure

£7.99

These are so easy to use, you literally find the correct size nail to suit the size of your own nail, peel off the back, press it on and you are done. I have tried a couple of sets and each have lasted 5-7 days which is great. It can take less than 5 mins to stick on a whole set, and if you think how long it would take to paint your nails and how quick they can chip. I think these would be great for any age as there is such a varied choice of colours and designs.

Kiss - Acrylic nails

Kiss – Acrylic nails

£7.95

These nails are really good too, you use them with nail glue and they lasted about 2 weeks on me. I like this design as it is natural. This would be good for people that aren’t comfortable wearing bright nails.

Tweexy

Tweexy

£12.95

This is so cool. You wear it on your finger when you paint your nails to hold your nail polish! I often used to paint my nails and try to balance to polish between my knees or end up holding it and nearly tipping it up!

Gem Duo

Gem Duo

£9.95

This cool looking set includes a hand cream and a lip balm, This is great for any make up addict and looks amazing if you put it on your dresser/desk.

Disney Alice Make Up Palette

Disney Alice Make Up Palette

£7.99

This palette is part of the new Disney range for Mad Beauty. It contains some beautiful brown/gold shades as well as a highlighter and would be great for any make up/Disney lover! It comes with two applicators and is great value for money. 


Earthnicity Tinted Moisturiser

Earthnicity Tinted Moisturiser

£27.50

This tinted moisturiser is mineral based, it is better for your skin than a normal liquid foundation as it is not so heavy. It applies really evenly and smoothly to create a fresh base, without having to wear too much make up.

Earthnicity

Earthnicity

Mineral Foundation

Shades Porcelain/Biscuit

£16.99 each

Mineral Blush

Shade Glamour

£10.99

Mineral Bronzer

Shade Bronze Shimmer

£13.99

Mineral Finishing Powder

Shade Light

£14.99

Mineral Concealer

Shade Ivory

£10.99

Kabuki Brush

£11.99

I love this brand so much right now, the products come in so many shades and I have been using mineral foundation for a while now rather than a liquid full coverage. I find the powders quite pigmented and you can layer them to create the perfect flawless look.

This would be great for anyone that has not tried mineral foundation before and the ‘Starter Kits‘ are really good value!


Jurlique Lip Trio

Jurlique Lip Trio

£26

This set contains:

Rose Love Balm

Hydra Gloss I’m Blushing

Hydra Gloss I’m Neutral

The balm is very hydrating and easy to wear as an everyday product. It is also great as there are two different shades of the gloss included, so depending on your mood you can pick one to suit.

Glitter Lips

Glitter Lips

£12.50

These are pretty cool. You get the glitter bond and the loose glitter to create an amazing sparkly lip that can last up to 8 hours. They last through eating and drinking and something like this can be suitable for such a varied age range! There is a good choice of colours in the range.

Burts Bees Lip Gloss

Burts Bees Lip Gloss

£8.99

These come in a wide variety of colours, aren’t sticky and are natural. What more could you want from a lip gloss?! In this range you will find one to suit everyone and any make up lover knows the pain of sticky lip gloss and will fall in love with these. The pigment is very good in these too.

Fab Brows Contour Kit

Fab Brows Contour Kit

Fab Brows Contour Kit

£20

I have tried several contour kits, still not really got the hang of it, but this one is by far the best if you are still trying to master the contour look. The shades work well together and the brush is really easy to use, you can’t really go wrong! After using this I had a very healthy natural looking glow.

Blank Canvas Cosmetics Palette

Blank Canvas Cosmetics Palette

Blank Canvas Cosmetics Palette

£30

Everyone loves a good eyeshadow palette, to create the perfect smoky eye you need browns/black and often some lighter shades, this has them all. The shades are highly pigmented and the mirror is an ideal size.

Beautiful Brows Set

Beautiful Brows Set
£30

This brow kit helps you create the perfect eyebrow. It comes in various shades and each kit contains:
Eyebrow powder
Three eyebrow shapes
Duo applicator brush
Eyebrow highlighter
Highlighter brush
Soft grip tweezers
Magnifying mirror

It literally contains everything you will need and as there are three different shapes you can pick the best one to suit your face. Some days I prefer a thinner brow and others I want them really thick so it is great you can mix it up a bit.

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics
£38.50

This all matte palette is great for any UD fan. Their naked palettes have always been popular and always contain a great selection of colours. It contains 12 shades that are all new and exclusive to this set and it also has a great brush. It is a must have for any make up fan.

The eyeshadows are highly pigmented and easy to apply, either with the brush provided or with your finger. I love the variety of shades and it can be used to create a really great smokey eye.

Film noir nights

Film noir nights

Charlotte Tilbury
Film noir nights
£35

This kit is great value for money when it comes to a luxury brand. It contains a lipstick and eyeliner in the cute light up box and the lipsticks are usually £23 each and the eyeliners are £19 each. The packaging is so luxurious and I just love the design of the lipsticks. Her products are always a big thumbs up with me! The lipsticks are really pigmented and a great non drying formula and the eyeliners are always so nice and just glide on.
