A classic red lip is the perfect festive makeup look in our opinion and this set contains the iconic MAC red shade, Ruby Woo, which is one of the best lipsticks of all time according to beauty experts and universally flattering. Wear it on its own or team with the clear lipglass. And for more low-key days just wear the lipglass on its own.

Every year Glossier release a limited edition, holiday-inspired flavour of their best-selling Balm Dotcom; a hydrating and nourishing lip balm. This year there are two flavours to choose from. Cookie Butter has a cinnamon-spiced flavour and a subtle caramel tint. Still, we’re leaning more towards the Hot Cocoa version which, as you may have guessed, smells like hot chocolate with cocoa, vanilla and sugar in the mix and delivers a light brown tint.

A great gift for the friend who has moved house this year or for someone you don’t really know that well but need to gift as who doesn’t love a diffuser?!
