I've been singing Have Yourself a Very Merry Christmas, since I first set eyes on this Clinique gift set. I know that's ridiculous as it is only the start of November after all. Yet there is something so appealing about starting to plan your Christmas shopping and I'm excited about all the gorgeous beauty offerings that are in stores this season.
Clinique's Instant Pretty (£35) is a sweet mini kit with all the products you'll need to create the key beauty looks for winter. It includes the brilliant High Impact Mascara, Long Lasting Lipstick and a small compact with an array of eye colours from deep plum and chocolate brown, to shimmery peach and pale green. There's also the legendary All About Eyes eye cream which reduces the look of dark circles, plus Take The Day Off makeup remover so you'll look fresh the morning after the party too!
I love that the entire kit comes housed in a chic silver clutch that has a sleek shape and useful wrist strap. So often beauty sets come in makeup bags or odd-looking purses you'd never use, whereas this one would look elegant with autumn's chic black dresses or lace ensembles. How about you, are you tempted to get this as a gift, or just for yourself?
