Gifts for Beauty Addicts

For when it's not just a beauty obsession, it's a way of life.

 Editor's beauty picks

1. Love Gloss Collection $59, Napoleon Perdis

Napoleon always have great goodies come Christmas and this collection has all the colours you’ll ever need. It's sold out online but if you're quick you can pop in store for this ultimate collection

2. Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette $81, Mecca

There’s a reason this is a cult product. Urban Decay shadows are known to be highly pigmented, easily blendable and virtually budge-proof when paired with the UD eyeshadow primer. I love the Naked 3 Palette over 1 and 2 because it has more pinkish shades of nude.

3. Bella Box, from $16.66 a month, Subscription Box

Beauty addicts love all things beauty, so what’s a better gift than giving them a subscription to a little box full of surprises each month? NOTHING, I TELL YOU. NOTHING.

4. The Dreamer Wellness Soak, $21.95, The Soak Society

A collaboration between the Soak and Goodnight societies, this is a great gift for anyone who needs a little rest and relaxation. This sensational soak combines lavender and chamomile to calm their mind, coconut to moisturise and white clay to leave skin soft. It’s specially made to send the soakee off to dreamland quick smart post-bath. Bliss!

5. Bumble and Bumble Surf Infusion $41, Mecca

You know when you use a salt spray and your hair looks amazing but is all crunchy and dehydrated? Well that’s a problem of the past thanks to this mega-hit product that celebrities stand by. It pairs salt spray with an oil spritz, giving you beachy waves, but shiny, soft hair!

6. Foreo Sonic facial cleanser from $179, Adore Beauty

Forget cleansing brushes, the beauty addict in your life will adore the Foreo. Its soft, waterproof, silicone bristles deliver a facial clean like no other. It’s no wonder this little gadget has won so many beauty awards.

7. Sara Happ One Luxe Balm $34.95, Lulu & Lipstick

The only lip balm you’ll ever need. Enough said.

8. Large Cosmos Cos Case $99.95, Mimco

Sure you could get a cheap makeup bag from a department store… OR you could give your loved one a bag that treats their products like the goddamn royalty that they are.

9. Everything Eyes by Bobbi Brown, $25, Bobbi Brown

If you know someone who's ever wanted to teach themselves to do those perfectly blended shadow laden eyes you see on models then this is the only teaching tool they'll need. Bobbi walks readers through creating ten fab looks from sparkly to smokey. She even teaches how to pick the perfect specs for your face shape.

10.  Makeup Brush Organisers, $28, Mecca

Ain’t no way you #wokeuplikethis but at least a well-organised brush set can help you look more human. These brush organisers make a super cute statement and will stop any good brush collection from getting crushed at the bottom of an overflowing drawer.
