Cult Christmas beauty buys from Escentials
The beauty buzz list
Buying beauty products can be a tricky endeavour. If you misjudge your recipient and get a scent or a lipstick shade wrong, it's likely they'll not use the product or simply re-gift it. And if you have someone picky to buy for, the usual beauty hall selection might not be cutting-edge or exclusive enough. Enter beauty emporium Escentials — that stocks a great selection of brands from Diptyque to By Terry to REN. Here are our top picks from their Christmas selection that meet our ultimate litmus test — we'll be more than happy to receive these ourselves.
REN Luxury Moroccan Rose Collection, $110
One of our favourite scents, this trio of a body wash, scrub and oil will definitely elevate any bath-time experience.
Glamglow Gift Sexy Ultimate Aging Set, $120
This four piece set — there's two mud masks, a cleanser and a brush — will give you the perfect skin you crave in a flash.
Diptyque Geranium Odorata Roll-On Eau de Toilette, $72
You'll never go wrong with this beautiful, spicy scent in a handy roll-on. The recipient can stash it in her purse for discreet touch-ups.
Lipstick Queen Cupid's Bow, $35 each
Feeling generous? Gift a dear friend or sister an entire lipstick wardrobe (or maybe just one if you're on a budget) with these plush, pigmented lip pencils.
By Terry Mascara Terrybly in Purple Success, $69
Trying to buy something for the friend who has everything? A luxurious purple mascara is unexpected, slighty 80s, but oh-so-cool when worn.
Maison Francis Kurkdjian Mon beau Sapin
Love the chic and utterly refined scents from this fragrance house? This limited-edition candle, inspired by holiday decorations, is a must-have for your home candle collection or a perfect gift for a sophisticated friend.
