The shades were made in mind that no matter what skin tone you have, the Naked Ultimate Basics palette should be made for you. Each shade is suitable from cool skin tones to olive complexions to darker skin. The reason the palette comes years after the other Naked palettes is that they were adamant they wanted every shade to be perfect. Urban Decay have said they wanted every shade to be suitable for everyone and you can't really ask for more. The formula makes the shadows easy to blend, especially as they don't go patchy and are quite pigmented. Aimed to feel buttery, they make creating a range of different makeup looks really pay off. Every shade in the Naked Ultimate Basics palette features their Pigment Infusion System which gives the shades the velvety texture, rich colour, serious staying power and blendability.
If you're like me, you'll have a makeup collection larger than most. With three Muji storage boxes, an Ikea Micke double desk with drawers and half an Ikea Kallax storage system with boxes in, I have such pride in my collection. What happens when you go on holiday? Multiple makeup bags to haul all of your makeup and skincare with you. What would you say if I told you that you could fit it all in one bag? Squiffy Print make personalised items such as makeup bags that are big enough for a whole weeks worth of makeup in. This Personalised Makeup Pouch (£18.50)* is not only great size wise, but you can have whatever you want printed on them, even in glitter!
2 years ago, Jess was printing t-shirts on the weekend to make a bit of extra money. Her imagination flourished and she ventured out into printing funky things on aprons, bags, hoodies and many other products. For the last twelve months she's been an absolute girl boss and had her products seen in Christmas catelogues and even on a national tv advert! Instead of putting her time into more traditional advertising, she wants to shout about her business to influencers to get her products seen by people like myself. Based in Lancashire (shout out to a fellow North Westerner!) she is happy to chat to come up with something you'll love and doesn't think you should be restricted when ti comes to gift giving and items for yourself.
This makeup bag is hand-pressed and you can also include a message inside the pouch if you're buying it for a friend or family member. It's not limited to makeup storage either, and would be perfect for an art enthusiast or a traveller who have a lot of small pieces they need in one place. The bag can be bought in the colour natural which is the one I have, or black with any colour font available. You can also pick silver or gold sparkly print which just screams glam. It would be perfect as a birthday or Christmas present and the delivery was super quick too.
I love a good pamper session, especially from the comfort of my own home. Prezzybox recently treated me to two at home relaxation sets so that I could de-stress and have a bit of me time. The package included the Detox Pamper Pack (£6.95)* and the Luxury Bath Melts Collection (£14.95)* and I've been trying them out over the past few weeks to see whether I could recommend them, and keep them in mind for future presents for people.
The Detox 4 Sachet Pamper Pack was created so you could pamper yourself from head to toe, with four masks to revitalise and prepare you for any event. It includes a Cucumber & Aloe Vera Face Mask, a pack of Wild Rose Revitalising Eye Pads, a Jojoba Creamy Revitalising Leave-In Hair Mask and an Aromotherapy Intensive Foot Cream. If you use them all at the same time you'll be left feeling refreshed and new, almost like a mini spa in your home. For someone who has thick, curly hair, problem skin and chronic health conditions, this is like heaven in a box - it's just missing some chocolates and I'd be sorted!
The set of Luxury Bath Melts Collection works well as a treat for you or a present for someone else. It includes six bath melts that are decorated to look like yummy cupcakes inside a pink egg box. There are 3 bath souffles, and 3 soothing sundaes that are enriched with cocoa butter to leave your skin super soft and moisturised. Each bath melt has a different scent, including Lavender & Patchouli, Summer Evening, Hyacinth, Peony, Lemon & May Chang and Rose Geranium. As they dissolve in the bath they leave the water cloudy which is a nice change to a coloured bath bomb. I noticed that after using a bath melt, my skin was nourished and left with almost a moisturised layer which is great in the colder months when your skin craves hydration.
