Give the Gift of Burberry #holidaygiftguide

I've got some great ideas for the following people on your list:

  • sister, mother, girlfriend;
  • beauty junkie, make-up lover;
  • lady who likes little luxuries
  • woman who has everything
  • girl who likes surprises
  • (MEN, READ:) your wives!

I'm going to preface this post by saying I don't own ANYTHING by Burberry. And it's not that I don't love that signature plaid. I do -- I just can't afford it. But I was recently introduced to Burberry Beauty products and let me tell you, I'm hooked. These little luxuries would make an ideal stocking stuffer and would really raise an eyebrow from the giftee (in a great way!).

Let's start with the lipstick -- or Lip Velvet, as it's known. What's in a name, right? LIP VELVET is.
It's so silky and smooth -- goes on highly pigmented and stays that way for HOURS. This is the first matte lipstick I've worn that doesn't dry out my lips and looks good for a long time. I don't eat it off, either. On the left is a beautiful coral colour called Honeysuckle, and on the right, my ultimate favourite this season -- Oxblood. Vampy shades are all the rage this season, and I would have been afraid of this colour in the past, but I love the deep plum slash burgundy tone. On point. Don't be afraid of this colour!


Onto eyeshadow --  I was able to test the new Eye Colour Cream in a beautiful new tone called Mink. This is NOT the cream shadow I was expecting. It's soft and silky, easy to blend and not sticky at all. I love this shadow for every day use -- running errands, grocery shopping, playdates. The colour is subtle but sophisticated with a hint of glimmer -- perfect for daily use. Give it some oomph with darker shading and smokiness for a night out. In the photo in the far right, I'm also wearing the Effortless Kohl Eyeliner in Stone, in the waterline to open up the eye and take away some of the sleepy! And that's Honeysuckle on the lip. 


I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the packaging. Each item is beautifully packaged and the Lip Velvet showcases the infamous Burberry pattern on the lid. The lipstick lids are even magnetic -- very chic!

Of course, there are TONS of other options in the Burberry Beauty collection -- and a new Holiday Collection, which I'll introduce you soon. If you're still stuck on colours, try visiting a Sephora location for great selection and guidance.

But if you want to give her a gift that'll woo her, start here.
