GIFT GUIDE 2018 | THE CHEAT SHEET
This is my favourite list because it is everything that was on my own wishlist for Christmas. It is one from every one of my favourite brands, my favourite products in beautiful new packaging, and what I believe is the best value for money. I’m basically saying, anyone reading this, this is everything you need on your own list.
Who doesn't need ten mini Bobbi Brown lipsticks in the perfect shades from nudes to burgundy. They fit perfectly into even the smallest clutch, there is a colour for every occasion and when they’re worth $330 but retail for $250, they are a must have. The gold packaging is also a major drawing card, because anything shiny needs to be on your Christmas list. Boyfriends take note, your girlfriend needs this gift pack.

You need something fun, and the MAC shiny pretty things range is value for money. In the most perfect hot pink, metallic packaging, the shades of the season are designed to match the packaging. The party favours feature 4 mini lipsticks and come in two different shade ranges, bright and nude. Bright is perfect for the party season and are those shades you never seem to buy yourself, because they’re not an everyday colour. The face compact is filled with a blush, bronze and highlight, with high pigment products, designed to be used for wet and dry.
Body wash is always on my list as I never remember to purchase it and always end up going for what's on special when I’m doing the groceries. Philosophy have always made my favourite body washes, being hydrating, doubling as a bubble bath and of course they just smell so good. Hollyberries and candy cane are my selects from the Christmas range.
Jewellery of course is always personal, but I recently came across Jackie Mack designs, with the daintiest of pieces, their earrings would make a perfect gift to just about everyone. I love mixing metals so whether it is silver or gold, or even rose gold, they’re perfect pieces to mix and match, and are extremely thoughtful.
I always need a restock of my favourite products, so I love to create a wishlist at Paula’s Choice to help a boyfriend out, so I receive exactly what I want and products that are tailored to my skin. Selecting products you use everyday, will mean you don’t have to stock up when you run out and it’s such a sentimental gift that so much thought has gone into sneakily trying to find out what your loved on uses.
Liquid gold in a bottle is what the Alpha H liquid gold is. It is a product I use twice weekly and is the one product that completely changes my skin. The holiday gift pack is 2 for 1, so for $59 you receive two full sized liquid golds, one for now and one for when you run out.

The absolute perfect universal colour, pillow talk is a sellout, and now Charlotte Tilbury has launched pillow talk in the superstar lips range which is a glossy lipstick, with the same long wearing formula, just more buildable and more of a sheer coverage. A colour that suits everyone and packaging that always makes you feel good when you hold it in your hand.
