Ça y est !!! Nous sommes en décembre !!! J'adore ce mois ! Avec l'arrivée des fêtes de fin d'année, j'ai le cœur et des étoiles dans les yeux. J'aime cette ambiance à l'approche de Noël, les décorations dans les rues, les vitrines, l'odeur du vin chaud et des gaufres, les gobelets rouges du Starbucks et leur délicieux Gingerbread latte, et bien sûr acheter mon sapin, décorer tout l'appartement, et partir à la recherche du cadeau parfait ! Du coup je me suis dit que j'allais faire un post dédié aux idées cadeaux qui comme vous allez le voir s'adresse plutôt aux filles. Certaines des idées sont des articles que j'ai acheté, d'autres sont des idées que j'ai aimé. Allez, je vous montre !
That's it !!! We are in December !!! I love this month ! With the arrival of the holiday season, I feel so happy. I like the atmosphere at the approach of Christmas, decorations in the streets, showcase, smell of mulled wine and waffles, red cups of Starbucks and their delicious Gingerbread Latte , and of course to buy my Christmas tree, decorate throughout the apartment, and go in search of the perfect gift for my beloved ones ! So I decided to make a post dedicated to gift ideas for girls. Some of the ideas are items I bought, others are ideas that I liked. I show you !
I discovered by chance the new Yves Saint Laurent Black Opium eau de parfum. I don't like YSL Opium because it's not the scents I wear and I love, but Black Opium is totally different. This fragrance has a lot of character but it's a very feminine scent too thanks to floral notes. To give you an idea, top notes are the white flowers ones (including jasmine) and heart notes are black coffee ones. You can also smell a touch of vanilla. It's one of those ideal fragrance for the winter! So, I've taken the plunge and I offered myself the gift set which includes an eau de parfum 1.6oz, a mini lipstick Pur Couture lip No. 01 Red and a mini Mascara Volume Effect False Eyelashes No. 01 Black High density. Gift set are really a good bargain because for a few more euros (€ 86.95 instead of € 84.95 in my case) you have a lipstick, a mascara, a shower gel or a cream,so it's time to take advantage of it !
And to garnish these make up bags before offering them, why not taking advantage of little Christmas gift sets available in stores? With the holidays approaching, different brands offer big sets with fragrance, makeup, body care, but also smaller ones that are less expensive as the Dior gift set which include a Diorshow Iconic Overcurl mascara in classic size and a mini pallet whose colors are beautiful and easy to wear (about € 30).
Another gift idea that will melt girls who love makeup : Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette that can be used to make very natural make up or strongh smoky. This is THE must have palette of the year and with it you can not go wrong!
One of my shots favorite items in all those Christmas collection, a blush and contouring palette by NARS, the One Shocking Moment. I didn't buy this one but I've got the one from last year and I can tell you that NARS blush are amazing ! Comparing the price of one blush to the price of the pallet, you will realize that it's really worth it!
Finally, what would be make up without brushes?! Each year, MAC offers for Christmas brushes sets sold in pretty packagings. I hdidn't bought this year's collection but I was offered a set last year and it's a very nice gift. The set is sold about sixty euros well below the real value of brushes. The handle is shorter, looking like a travel size, but it doesn't change the quality of products. I've got the Duo Fiber set, but the other two Basic and Essential are really good too!
For all lovers of French couture especially Chanel, I recommend this beautiful book : Coco Chanel by Megan Hess. Using illustrations she depicts the life of this famous designer. It is a beautiful book, but is only available in English for now.
Another great gift, for lovers of tea this time, is the Christmas tea selection of Damman frères, the golden box is really nice and their teas are a treat. The Christmas Carols set is a range of three Christmas teas and two blends to brew, but there are also smaller gift sets if tou prefer.
