For the second instalment of my '10 Things to Wish For' series, we're heading virtually to one of my top spots for a bit of Christmas beauty shopping; the mothership that is Space NK. Their present selection by the year is a good all-rounder, some exclusive to the store, others limited editions, and so whether it's for a little special something to add to your own wish list this year, or if you're looking to spoil that certain someone, I bring to you my Space NK gift edit, catering to all budget needs...
NARS Virtual Domination Cheek Palette - £45 - Five pretty powders all housed in a snowflake adorned palette? This right here is a blush lovers dream. Making up the blush options are Deep Throat, and limited editions Sex Fantasy and Final Cut, along with more of a highlighting cheek colour, Miss Liberty and a full size Laguna Bronzer.
This Works Miracle Cracker - £10 - Forget paper jokes and party hats, instead scatter these crackers over your Christmas table; the mini Deep Sleep Body Therapy inside doubles up as a snooze inducer as well as an oil that nicely nourishes your skin pre-bed time.
REN Neroli Duo Set - £25 - The body care offerings from REN are just all kinds of beautiful, minus the bad chemical stuff - this set packs a zesty punch with a full size Grapefruit and Neroli Body Cream and Body Wash all tucked up in the cutest tin.
Malin & Goetz Votive Set - £34 - I almost threw in Diptyque's Christmas trio, but opted for a change in the way of Malin & Goetz travel-sized votives in Dark Rum, Tobacco and Vetiver, all very appropriate sounding whiffs for winter.
Ciate Mini Mani Manor - £49 - Behind every door, you'll find a little lacquer - things don't get a lot better than that. The 24-bottle collection features 15 mini paint pots, 1 full size polish and 8 nail art effects, allowing you to create a multitude of Christmas mani varieties.
Glamglow Giftsexy - £50 - One for the face mask fiends; three of their best sellers make up this set, including two tiny tubs of Supermud and Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment, and a full size Thirsty Hydrating Treatment, all of which are suitable for all skin types. Huzzah.
NARS Digital World Lip Pencil Coffret - £32 - A 5-piece lip pencil pack which sees the most sought-after Satin Lip's in a jumbo stick format. From nudes to orangey hues, we have: Torres Del Paine, Descanso, Yu, Iberico and Cruella (side note: this one's exclusive to Space NK - snap it up for sure).
Becca Spotlights Kit Shimmering Skin Perfector - £20 - With the full-sizers lasting an age as it is, this little kit offers a trio taster of shimmering shades; Pearl, Opal and a limited edition Champagne Gold, all in lipgloss-like doe-foot that can be used as a base, mixed in with foundation or popped on top for skin that glows for days.
Laura Mercier La Petite Pâtisserie Soufflè Body Crème Collection - £45 - Think all kinds of bakery goodness in six dreamy, creamy soufflé-like lotions. Ambre Vanillé, Almond Coconut Milk, Crème Brûlée, Fresh Fig, Crème de Pistache and Tarte au Citron, offer scents that are both fruity and sweet, and linger longtime on your limbs.
Clarks Botanicals Thakoon Set - £42 - Because that clutch has NYE written all over it. Pretty, glittery pouch aside, the contents include an Ultra Rich Lip Tint in 24k Kiss, a Cellular Lifting Moisture Mist and two Smoothing Marine Creams, all in travel-sized tasters for newbies to the brand (they'll thank you for it).
