Pretty Gifts from theBalm | Christmas 2017

When it comes to makeup, for me it doesn’t get much cooler than theBalm. Their clever designs and naming conventions always make me smile, of course the packaging is rather cool too! This Christmas they’ve released an amazing array of gifts, yet there isn’t a Christmas tree in sight – hurrah! Let’s take a look at the products on offer from theBalm this year…

Girls’ Getaway Trio*
The first product from theBalm is the Girls’ Getaway Trio, which is a trio of long-wearing bronzer and blushers. They all arrive in a handy small compact, which you flip open to find the products inside. The blushers and bronzers are held in little circles and there is a large mirror too. What I love about this gift is that everything is really wearable, making it the perfect travel companion! The three shades are Balm Springs (a pop of rich pink), Balm Beach (a light pink shimmer), and Balm Desert (a rich bronzer hue). The Girls’ Getaway Trio will retail for £21.50. 

In theBalm Of Your Hand (Greatest Hits Volume 2)*
Fans of theBalm will LOVE In theBalm Of Your Hand, as it’s a palette with all of theBalm’s most popular products! It’s an all-inclusive palette, which means you really get a bit of everything, thanks to their amazing multi-purpose products. Inside the palette you get four eyeshadows which can be used wet or dry, two blushers which work well as eyeshadows too, one long-wearing staining powder blush, a matte bronzer which also works well as a contour powder or eyeshadow, plus a beautiful champagne-hued highlighter. The In theBalm Of Your Hand (Greatest Hits Volume 2) palette will retail for £29. 

Meet Matt(e) Hughes*
Now if you’re more of a lipstick lover, this gift is the one for you! Inside theBalm’s Meet Matt(e) Hughes, you get six mini long-lasting liquid lipsticks. They are the cutest thing I’ve ever seen and slip nicely into even your smallest handbag! Each lipstick in this gift is beautiful – they have everything from nude hues to bold Christmas party shades. The Meet Matt(e) Hughes gift will retail for £26.

Smoke Balm Vol.4*
I think my favourite piece in this collection is actually the cheapest! Smoke Balm Vol.4 is an exclusive new eyeshadow palette, which is everything you need for an eyeshadow look that impresses this Christmas. The three shades in this palette are a mixture of foil and matte, which work perfectly together. I’ve been enjoying using the lightest shade, with the matte brown through the crease on work days and then jazzing it up to include the rich foil shade for special occasions. This is such a lovely versatile palette and it will retail for just £13 this Christmas!

This is such a lovely gift selection – what I love about theBalm is that not a lot of people will think of them, so it’s a great unusual makeup gift if you have a beauty addict to surprise this season!
