Marc Jacobs The Sky Liner, Petite Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Collection

A giftable collection of Marc Jacobs' bestselling eye crayon, including 7 shades, 2 of which
are limited edition all tucked into a sleek Marc Jacobs pouch. Available from Sephora.

Guerlain Gloss D'Enfer

It's perhaps the only time of year you can get away with any kind of sparkly makeup and these
 lip glosses from Guerlain give you just the right amount without going full Christmas tree
overboard.

Tom Ford Noir Color Collection

Specially (and beautifully) packaged in glossy jet black, this limited edition collection was
inspired by the Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme perfume. Creating the ultimate smokey eye
in deep - almost black - navy blue with the Cream and Powder eye colour and onyx-black
nails thanks to the Nail Lacquer. But the real showstopper is the Lash Tips Mascara in gold,
which gives you a flash of light to the eyes once applied.

Mecca Cosmetica
I'm quite confident that most of us will have 'anything from Mecca' on our wish lists -
myself included... These are my favourites;

The Icons Nail Polish Squad

Time to (actually) throw out all those gloopy nail polishes and bring in the classics: red, nude,
navy and light pink.

Sun Kissed

The most important skincare? SPF. Stay looking young for many Christmases to come (did
 I just RHYME) with lip and face handbag duo from Mecca.

Bare Minerals Precious Gems

A trio of lip oil-balms to add a dash of colour and moisturise.

Frank Body Sweet Cheeks

Frank for you face. The latest range takes all the goodness of the cult classic body range into 
a face scrub, cleanser and moisturiser, all perfectly wrapped up in a handy gift box.

Shu Uemura X Maison Kitsuné

When two great brands team up together incredible things are bound to happen. The newest
being Maison Kitsuné - the leading French label - and Shu Uemura - the cult Japanese beauty
brand. The outcome is a colourful and playful collection. Cult classic Ultime8 cleansing oil has
a new look, while the X15 Eye and Cheek Palette mixes an effortless French smoky eye with
bright pink blush inspired by the youthful Tokyo style.

Kiehl's X Peter Max 

Another classic Kiehl's collaboration, this year teaming up with Pop art icon Peter Max,
this limited edition Ultra Facial Cream and Crème de Corps. Get them quick before they
sell out!

Bobbi Brown Art Stick Trio

Bobbi Brown's offerings for the holiday season are always quite impressive, and this year is
now different. My favourite is the Art Stick Trio which takes away the fuss and hassle of
lipstick with 3 shades; Electric Pink, Harlow Red and Brown Berry. Perfect for party season
lips.
