The countdown to Christmas has already started. So where are your presents? A friend of yours unexpectedly brought you something special, but you hadn’t anything with you to requite her kindness in that moment? You’ve been looking for good inspirations to buy a little wonder to your sister/mom/cousin but in the final rush you haven’t found nothing ‘that’ cute? Don’t worry. Beauty bloggers can provide plenty of ideas! All you need to do is to give a quick read, take notes, wear your running shoes and run to the closest beauty counter!
If you want to go luxury, but don’t have the budget to afford a jewel by Rocca (famous top jeweler in Milano), Chanel and Dior offer this year two mini wonders every woman would want to find under the Christmas tree.
The first is Chanel Illusion d’Ombre a creamy mono eyeshadow in a glass pot with black cap, which is equipped with a mini professional brush. You can find it in a wide range of colors, so here the suggestion is either to pick up a shade you know your friend already wears or to select the most neutral and basic ones: #envol #convoitise #emerveille are all very chic, for instance.
The other little mini treasure is Diorific in the shade #762 Shock. The perfect classic red nail polish that conquers mothers and daughters of all ages, no matter how rock or ladylike they can be. Isn’t the packaging awesome?!
Something a little bit more pricey?
In the big girls’ cravings for eye shadow palettes, a bit unexpected but really welcome choice could be Dior 5 coulers. If you don’t want to loose your friendship, try something not too risky or bold, picking up a set of neutrals, or try one of the two Christmas limited editions #045 and #756, both really contemporary and festive.
If you’re more intrigued by fragrances, a body cream could make a wonderful present. Chloe perfumed body cream, also available in a gift set is a delicate, sophisticated but almost universal perfume, thanks to a flowery bouquet, that captivates the spirit of roses. Body creams have the plus of treating the skin, without smelling too invasive. And if you have no clue of what scent your friend normally wears, a softer scent is usually the best.
Last and furthermost, I left the most precious and special item of the whole selection. Of course. It’s Dior J’adore L’Or. A meet-up between Grasse (France) and Orient, where flowery notes of jasmine and rose are blended together with rare and precious ingredients, such as Indian tuberose and tahitian vanilla. The whole, kept in a jeweled bottle, beautifully packed into an exclusive white box. Don’t confuse it with the ‘common’ J’adore or the other versions of the perfume, such as L’absolu. This has nothing to do with the others. It’s Heaven in a bottle.
