Last minute christmas gifts

        Every damn year I tell myself I should do all my Christmas shopping BEFORE December, yet every year I end up doing some last minute researches online because I've been procrastinating... Wether you're like me or if you're still shopping for friends or family you'll see after the holidays, here's a small gift guide that might help :)!

 

 

  • Match Stix Trio - Fenty Beauty - 54$ The beauty branch of Fenty was one of the biggest drops this year and everyone was excited about it, because 1 - It's by the only one, Rihanna, 2 - It's finally an inclusive beauty brand with its wide range of shades and 3 - It's actually good quality! I had the luck to try it a bit before it was out, and I can say my favorite of all their items are the match stix, by far. They're easy to use, have so many playful colors, and have magnets in is to keep them all together in your bag!
  • Kindle - 99,99 now For the one who loves to read but also loves to travel. There is nothing like the sensation of an actual book but they are so heavy that you can never travel with more than 3 each time. So Kindle is nice alternative for the ones like me who are often on a plane.
  • Midnight Repair Oil - Bogavia - 48$ There is a reason I still talk about Bogavia, it's the perfect mix between luxury and plant based skincare. I am actually trying new products from them and will review it soon, but here is one of their best product that you can make your best friend or your mom discover!

 

  • Mobile Lens Kit - Urban Outfitters - 34$ More and more people only use their phone as a camera, so it can be nice to explore different possibilities of pictures in a playful way.
  • Gift Subscription - Birchbox - 30$ for 3 month This gift is good if you're the laziest: you don't even have to pack the gift as it already comes as a cute box. Good point too as it's ok to be late for this one, they'll receive the January one as a late gift that makes them feel the magic of Christmas longer!
  • 2018 Planner - Mochithings - 26.95$ For the ones who love beautiful stationery and who like organization.
  • Hydrating Rubber Mask - Dr. Jart - 12$ The perfect gift for someone you don't know so well and who loves skincare. Everyone needs a little hydration and this 2 step rubber mask is cooler than your average sheet mask. I made a review of the other rubber masks here.
  • Naughty Nice Sweater - Wildfox - 108$ I fell in love with this sweater when I worked for Wildfox. Because it's soft, the message is fun and it's red (and #REDismycolor :P)!

Last minute christmas gifts

 

There's a chance that you're like me - waiting for the last minute panic to buy your Christmas gifts - or that you still need gift ideas for your friends and family members you will only see after the 25th. In both case you can still rush to Sephora or order online to get these gifts asap !

 

 

Bite Beauty - Best Bite redux - 25$

Because of the shape of the pen, these lipsticks are so easy to apply and the shades in the set are wearable yet trendy, beautiful and with a great creamy texture.

Justine Clenquet - Tattoo Choker - 92€

Even if everyone has already a choker, I think this one makes a difference. I love Justine Clenquet's punkish chic brand and she also sells on Opening Ceremony to get it easier outside of France.

Nest - Grapefruit Classic Candle - 40$

I hate grapefruits but love this candle smell which is just fresh and comforting. What I like with Nest Candles, is that the smell is pretty strong, which allows you to make it last longer as you don't need to light it for such a long time.

Drunk Elephant - Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil - 72$

Knowing all the good reviews on the brand, you can't go wrong with that gift ! It is the kind of gift I would offer to my mom as she loves luxury skincare products and Marula Oil is one of the key ingredient/product from the line.

Bkr - Winter Star 500mL bottle - 35$

If you carry it all day in you bag, it might as well be cute. A nice bottle to treat a healthy friend who cares about staying hydrated with style.

Dior - Sauvage 60mL - 72$

Sometimes a classic gift is the best move. One of the best sellers in male fragrances, this sexy and masculine scent is always great for a no fail gift.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit - Surreal Light - 80$

What I like with this palette is that it's almost as much of a decoration item than a beauty gift. The colors are not too strong so it's perfect for subtle contouring and the marble looking case is ridiculously beautiful !

MochiThings - Passport Case - 12.95$

Perfect for the traveler. It's simple and chic, but you can choose brighter colors for more fun. The brand also has a luggage tag with the same design if you want to make it a more complete gift.
