My dream Christmas tree? One that is covered in beauty baubles. I fantasise about spending all of Christmas day unwrapping lipsticks and mascaras, moisturisers and bath bombs, oils, soaps, serums... treasuring each and every little delight until the tree was bare. Alas, my budget doesn't quite stretch that far... but there will definitely be a few decorations of the cosmetic and skincare variety hanging from my tree's boughts this holiday season.
So what's out there to tickle our tinsel? Check these pretties out!
Clinique have well and truly come to the bauble party with a range of little boxes containing sweet Clinique treats that can be hung off a Christmas tree. Do we want the Lip Out Loud set? Indeed. Do we want all the sets? Yes, we do.
My biggest Christmas regret last year was not picking one of these up for myself. I'm not making the same mistake twice. Stylish bauble. Fab products inside. It's a Christmas tree decoration must-have.
It may be little but it is luxe! With a Hyaluronic Acid Serum and a Pure Deepsea Hydrating Mask, this tree ornament will be a sensational surprise to the serious skincare lover.
We don't know about this mascara's audacious claim... But we do know that a tree full of these would give us something to squeal about!
At $80 this might be the most luxe decoration ever, but it's Jo Malone and it's a Pine & Eucalyptus scent - and for that price one hopes one can rub it on their pulse points and smell like a Christmas tree.
The Aromatherapy Co. have come out with a range of festive baubles, including hand creams and a ceramic fragrance disc. Our pick for decorating the tree goes to the Melon & Cucumber Body Oil. The scent? Yes. The packaging? So pretty. Love it!
After the stresses and strains of Christmas sometime a gal needs a good soak - and finding these on the tree would only encourage such a practice.
With cotton candy skies on the handle and candyfloss pink bristles, this special edition brush from NYX Professional Makeup is a delight to behold!
The Mini Fairy Bomb Fun-Size Glittering Pom Pom is so whimsical and cute and delightful it needs to be on our trees, and in our life.
One of the few times I've been tempted to not give a gift I bought for someone else was when I bought a L'Occitane bauble. They tempt my inner-Francophile something wicked. There's a range to choose from, including cherry blossom, verbena, almond, and the above shea butter - each with a gorgeous selection of goodies. Can I just have a whole tree-ful please?
So many pretties... and only one time a year we get to enjoy them... Sigh. I feel there needs to be a case for beauty baubles all year round. So, are you into these cosmetic cuties? Will a few be hanging from your tree? Will you be asking Santa to send some your way? Get chatting!
