The Christmas Edit: Splurge Gifts

Wednesday, 9 December 2015
Some loved ones are really worth the splurge and these are some of my absolute favourite ultra luxurious beauty picks. These are the gifts for the totally beauty obsessed who already have all the run of the mill high end products and are often tricky to buy for because they already have everything else. 

Fragonard Belle Cherie Parfum 60mL $149.00
When it came time to include a beautiful and unique high end fragrance in this gift buying guide this was the clear winner. I actually purchased this perfume when I was in Paris and it remains my all time favourite. Fragonard Parfumeur actually makes the luxury fragrances for Chanel, Dior and other luxury French brands so you know immediately that they are going to be exceptional. For the complete scent breakdown, Belle Cherie has top notes of tangerine and starfruit, middle notes of jasmine, heliotrope and lily of the valley as well as base notes of sandalwood, tonka bean and vanilla. That probably doesn't mean much to most people but suffice to say that it is a beautiful feminine but sophisticated floral that has incredible staying power. People stop and ask me what I'm wearing when I have this perfume on, it is that beautiful! Even the most dedicated perfume aficionados won't have this gorgeous fragrance and will appreciate the luxurious French scent.

Diptyque Set of Mini Candles $128
Speaking of gorgeous French scents, this candle pack includes the Baies, Figuier and Roses candles. Each candle is 70g which gives this pack a value of $0.61/gram whereas singles which weigh 184 grams are $0.46/gram. As such, this pack isn't as good value for money but it does give you the opportunity to try three scents for less than the price of two candles. It also comes with a beautiful presentation box which would be appreciated by any luxury candle addict.

Charlotte Tilbury 6 Shades of Love Set in Love Glow $100
This pack includes the cult favourite K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in Bitch Perfect and Love Cheek to Chic Blusher in Love Glow. Separately these products cost $48 and $60 respectively which gives you a saving of $8. They also come in a beautiful box in the iconic maroon and rose gold which makes the gift look absolutely stunning.

Yves Saint Laurent Palette 02 $129
How absolutely gorgeous is this palette? That packaging and the shades are just stunning. YSL is also known for creating really gorgeous eye shadows as well. This palette comes in a neutral version too but there is something about these jewel tones that just scream luxe. You would be hard pressed to find a beauty addict who wouldn't squeal in delight at receiving this.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit $117
This palette caused something of a stir when it was first released because the pans were a lot smaller than many were expecting given the size of the other palettes. While I do admit that this palette isn't as good for value as the others, it is still better value than buying all the singles, especially for someone who didn't buy the original blush and powder palettes. Each pan is pretty small at 1.4 grams and the whole palette has a net weight of 8.2 grams. That means it boils down to $14.29/gram while the single powders are $6.67/gram, the blushes are $11.90/gram and the bronzer is $6.69/gram. Of course, the advantage of this palette is ability to try 6 products for the price of two. I do think they should have made the pans the same size as the other palettes (3.3grams) but it is still a gorgeous gift for someone who doesn't have any Hourglass powders in their collection.

Charlotte Tilbury The Golden Goddess Eye Kit $158
There was just so many beautiful Charlotte Tilbury gifts to choose from and this one is a particular standout. While you don't actually save money buying these products in a kit, you do get everything you need to create one of Charlotte's signature eye looks. I have been lusting after this palette for so long and I really do think the complete pack makes for the ultimate gift. 

So there you have my splurge gifts for those people you really love to spoil at Christmas. I hope you enjoyed my Christmas Gift Edit and don't forget to check out my other parts for gifts under $25, $50 and $100. I really do hope you have an amazing Christmas full of spoiling your loved ones and getting spoiled!

Stay Rosy.
