If you want your Christmas decorations to look as glamorous as you this year, then you will be spoilt for choice. With an array of festive beauty baubles and Christmas crackers around, there is something for everyone. So why not surprise friends and family with some beauty goods that you can display on – rather than under – the Christmas tree.
London-based beauty brand Ciaté lead the way with their delectable Tree Trinkets. The six mini nail varnishes in each pack have suitably seasonal names including Yule Rules, Candy Cane and Tinsel Town. The sparkly lacquers are housed in clear globes and finished off with Ciaté’s signature black bow. You can either choose to hang all six on your tree to create a dazzling display, or present loved ones with individual trinkets using the gift tags provided.
For those working with a smaller budget, Topshop offers individual tree ornaments. Their mini nail pyramids will really stand out on any stylish Christmas tree, thanks to the fluorescent green ribbon. They come in dazzling silver, gold, multi-coloured glitter and Jem – a twinkling berry red.
Mavala also have festive fancies to glitz up your Yuletide. Two of their 5ml nail polishes, sparkling red Rouge Rubis and the glittering silver Pure Diamond, have been packaged in clear baubles and tied up with a matching seasonal satin ribbon. All Mavala’s lacquers are free from parabens, formaldehydes, toluene, camphore, cellophane, animal ingredients and heavy metal – yet another thing to celebrate during the Christmas season.
Eve Lom’s Kiss Mix Star will add a dash of chic to the tree this Christmas. The golden star is pretty enough, but even more exciting is the 7ml pot of Kiss Mix balm to soothe winter lips which is inside. Equally as kooky is the Rodial Glam Balm Lip Christmas Tree Decoration, a square purple and red box which hides a vial of the company’s iconic lip treatment.
If your Christmas table could do with some cheering up, then rest assured the beauty industry is already one step ahead of you. We always knew Christmas wouldn’t be the same without crackers to pull and this has never been truer as the traditional cheap gifts inside have been swapped for top beauty must-haves.
Clarins is creating a stir with their festive box of crackers. In glamorous gold and pink packaging, they are the perfect accessory for any Yuletide feast. However, they are in-demand, so if you want to get your hands on them you need to be quick. With miniature gifts including mascara, lipstick and hand cream, they are flying off the shelves. Word of warning: be prepared to battle it out if the cracker you pull contains the coveted Beauty Flash Balm!
Origins are also offering a twist on the traditional Christmas cracker. Their boxes of six contain 15ml products, mini-facial headband and even a seasonal joke. With treats inside including a charcoal mask, hand treatment, body wash and whipped body cream you won’t find any leftover cracker gifts lying around after dinner this year.
