I’ve searched through Santa’s workshop and a whole lot of Christmas gift guides to find the absolute Best Christmas Beauty Buys for 2017. Whether you are looking for something for your bestie, creating your own Christmas wish list (that’s what my boyfriend was worried I was doing) or doing some major window shopping, there’s something to spread some Christmas cheer for every beauty fan. In my opinion, these are the best of the best from brands such as Too Faced, NYX, Benefit, Lush, Tarte, ASOS and more.
♥ Too Faced
I really like the range that Too Faced offer in their Christmas collections. Going from super cute smaller decorations or Christmas cracker gift packs to the massive Chocolate Vault. The Chocolate Vault makes my eyes water in excitement. It includes 3 Chocolate Bar palettes, 2 Chocolate Chip travel sized palettes, 3 Chocolate Soleil Bronzers and 3 Melted Chocolate Lipsticks. I bet it smells amazing!
♥ NYX Cosmetics
The Kiss and Tell Advent Calendar has a surprise behind each of it’s 24 doors.This limited edition release is full of fan favourite lipstick shades and will make the countdown to Christmas much more fun.
♥ Jeffree Star
Jeffree’s offering for the holiday season is the Holiday Glitter Collection. The range includes 8 Liquid Lipsticks and 4 Lip Ammunitions with beautiful glittery packaging, along with two highlighter palettes. My favourites are the Lip Ammo in Champagne Tears and the Liquid Lipstick in Santa Baby. If you haven’t tried anything from Jeffree Star Cosmetics, check out my review here.

♥ Glam Glow
The Glam Glow SuperMud Mask is still my all time favourite face mask, however these Christmas gift packs are a great opportunity to try out more from the Glam Glow range. The Let it Glow SuperMud Set is great value as you get a full sized SuperMud Clearing Treatment along with 3 mini sized treatments for the same price as the usual RRP for just the SuperMud Treatment.

♥ Benefit Cosmetics
Benefit is quite well known now for their fun and quirky Christmas gift packs. Although their advent calendar doesn’t seem to be available in NZ (disappointing!), I am a fan of the two limited edition sets which we can get our hands on. ‘Beauty and the Bay’ includes 4 different best selling makeup products, ‘B.right by the Bay’ also includes four products but is more skincare focused.

I’ve never tried a Tarte product before, but this Limited Edition Tarteist Pro Vault has got me really wanting to give it a try. This massive set includes the popular Amazonian Clay Palette, cream and powder contours, highlighting powders, Lash Paint mascara, Double Take eyeliner, lashes and a creamy matte Lip Paint. This massive vault is insanely pretty with raving reviews. I especially like that it includes a wide range of products. All you need is your foundation and you’re set!

♥ Asos – Mad Beauty
This 12 day advent calendar is so cute and it might even keep your younger sister out of your beauty stash. The animal themed designs are spread across a range of beauty products including hair, skin and nail products. It’s also by far the cheapest beauty advent calendar I’ve come across at just under $24 NZD.

Everybody loves Lush, making it a great gift for that person who you just aren’t sure what to buy for. Everything smells beautiful and their holiday season products are perfectly themed and already wrapped! There is a massive range to chose from spanning across bath, shower and body products, but my favourite is 12 Days of Christmas. It includes 12 different joy-filled products for someone who loves to unwind or who really needs to unwind!
