Remember the dark old days where Christmas decorations came down to multi-coloured tinsel thrown around a tree, interspered with round globes in gold, silver and red. Then for the piece de resistance you'd grab handfuls of gold tinsel and drape it over the poor pine's foliage. It was a good time, to be sure, but we've come a long way since those golden days, and now trees are works of art, or in this case works of beauty.
You see beauty brands have caught onto the most marvellous of marketing tricks. Take their products, pop it in some cute packaging, add a ribbon - and boom, the ultimate Christmas decoration. So what do we want to see not under our tree but hanging off our tree this Christmas? Check these beauties out...
Limited edition. New, exclusive lip colours. Those two points alone make this gorgeous decoration/gift... gifteration??... from Ciate a yes please!
Have a Beautyblender-obsessed friend? Slip the Midas Touch decoration on her tree (comes with a Beautyblender and Blendercleanser solid) and she won't beat about the bush telling you how much she loves you!
No need to split hairs about this Christmassy treat. The bauble is stylish, the product inside ideal for those who need to show their hair some love.
Anyone seeing this appear on their tree will be awash with praise to the person who put it there!
Have a friend who's balmy about balm (I'm looking at you BR Nat!), this decadent decoration will have them puckering up with thanks!
Love a little luxury? This Jo Malone Christmas Ornament containing an Orange Blossom Cologne, and Grapefruit Body Creme offers just that!
Do you get so excited for Christmas that you can't sleep the night before? You might want to crack into this gem early then! BR Kellie has the Sleep Plus and she reckons it's lavendery goodness is just the ticket to help send you to the land of nod.
Yes. Want. Gimme.
We've already mentioned a lip product... but this one is sooooo cute, and at $16 from Mecca it's a steal! Except, we wouldn't steal it, because then we'd be on Santa's naughty list and we wouldn't get any beauty goodness from him... so we won't steal it, we'll just buy it, and keep our names on the 'nice' list.
Soooooo... do any of these beautiful baubles have you feeling festive? What would you love to find hanging on your tree? And am I alone in wishing I could have a tree entirely made up of beauty baubles? (Sorry tinsel... you're dead to me.) Chat away!
