Finding the Perfect Christmas Gift for under £30

The second post in my “Finding the Perfect Christmas Gift” series focuses on mid range beauty gift sets. Perfect if you want to treat someone special without completely breaking the bank. When paying more, I like gift sets that have a variety of products to allow me to use them again and again. I feel that it justifies the price too. So here are some of my favourites on the market ready for the festive season.

Clinique Cherry on the Top
£25.00 from


This is a gorgeous set with a good range of miniature Clinique products. As you all know from previous posts I really like Clinique makeup products but they can be pricey. This is a great gift as it is only £25.00 for quality products. It contains; a limited-edition All About Shadow™ Quad, Cream Shaper™ For Eyes in Chocolate Lustre, a Chubby Lash™ Fattening Mascara in Jumbo Jet and a Clinique Pop™ Lip Colour + Primer in Cherry Pop. A good range of colours to suit any skin tone.

Benefit Blushin’ Babe Gift Set


There are so many great Benefit gift sets available and I could honestly buy them all but I have picked two of my favourites for this post starting with this beautiful Blushin’Babe set. This contains 5 of my favourite Benefit products, which is a great start! It includes mini versions of; Dandelion, Sugarbomb, Rockateur and Coralista blushers (Rockateur and Coralista are favourites of mine!) Hoola bronzer (another favourite!) Watt’s up! Cream highlighter (yes another favourite and one of the best on the market). They’re real! mascara in beyond black (Absolute amazing mascara) and a They’re real! eyeliner in beyond black. A really good palette to put a smile on anyone’s face!

Benefit Girl-a-rama Gift Set
£29.50 from


This is a fantastic set as not only does it contains miniature versions of some of Benefits favourite products, but it is a full-face palette. It contains: Roller Lash mascara, the Porefessional face primer, a powder brush, Benetint lip and cheek stain, They’re Real! duo shadow blender in Brazen Bronze, a custom shadow blender and Coralista / Rockateur blushers in a split pan. I have several Benefit gift sets. I think they are an excellent way to try all the products, as they are expensive to buy separately but these sets allow you to have lots of products in one go. Plus they are handy when traveling too as it saves you taking a huge makeup bag full of stuff!

Makeup Revolution Ultra Pro Collection
£20.00 from


This is the ultimate collection of products and brushes to allow you to create so many looks. It contains; a Lip Palette, a blending eye brush, a flat contour brush, a Cream Contour Kit, a Redemption Palette in Smoked Nudes, a Duo Highlighter, an eye primer and a Brow Kit. This is amazing value.

Real Techniques Your Picks: Berlin Makeup Brush Set
£20.00 from


Real Techniques is my favourite brush brand by far. This funky set contains a Contour Brush, a Stippling Brush, a Buffing Brush, a Deluxe Crease Brush and a Base Shadow Brush. Real Technique brushes are super soft, great quality and wash well. I use mine every day. This collection of brushes allows you to apply makeup to your whole face.

MAC Nutcracker Sweet Eye Compacts
£29.99 from


I am in love with these palettes and the whole MAC Nutcracker Sweet collection. There is a variety of products in gorgeous pinky/plum brown shades and in fab packaging. The eye shadow palettes are available in 3 shade collections; Smoky Eye, which has warm pinky brown colours. Sweet Cool, which has cool pinky, plum colours and Sweet Warm which has warm brown/ caramel colours. There are 9 eye shadows in each set plus a big mirror and gorgeous packaging. These are on my Christmas list!

I hope you found this post helpful. These posts are getting me excited and in the Christmas mood. Thanks for reading…
