In the spirit of Christmas, and the fact we’ve all had a tough couple of years around the sun, we truly deserve to treat ourselves, or be treated, to some truly luxe gifts. If you’ve been lacking wishlist inspo, or can’t quite figure out what your bougie friend or family member might be thrilled to receive this year, MMM has rounded up 10 products to get you in the mood to splurge. 

Dior Addict Lip Glow Balm

AUD60 GBP28 USD38

This one is for the lip balm queen! Every woman and their cavoodle is lusting after this Lip Glow Balm in 2022! Lip Balm fever has taken the year by storm with the rise and stay of the clean-girl-makeup look. Hydrate your lips in serious style with a pop of colour, the packaging alone is worth every penny. Our shade pick: any you can get your hands on, these sell out quickly!

Westman Atelier Baby Cheeks Blush Stick

AUD72 GBP44 USD48

Remember when blush was unpopular? What did we even look like before we started rouging up on the daily? Let’s bury that memory deep and stomp on its grave with Westman Atelier’s foray into the cream blush world this year, the Baby Cheeks Blush Stick. Our shade pick: call me wild, but Poppett is speaking to me. A divine shade of hot pink, it’s giving holiday healthy glow.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Face Palette

AUD120 GBP78 USD85

It’s not Christmas if you’re not stocking up on a seasonal Hourglass face palette to get you through 2023. This year's palettes are particularly hard to resist, with 3 palettes to choose from featuring artwork by world-renowned illustrator, Katie Scott. The limited-edition palettes support Hourglass's mission to unlock the cages of wild animals in captivity. So it would be un-humanitarian not to buy one. Or five. Right?!

Gucci Luminous Matte Beauty Blush

AUD83 GBP41 USD49

Gucci’s first foray into the powder blush world, and what a grand entrance the Luminous Matte Beauty Blush has made! The packaging is, as ever, gorgeous and eye-catching, making it a makeup item you just need to collect possibly just have to be put on display. The powder is infused with hydrating ingredients and promises a buildable, long-lasting luminous matte color. Our shade pick: All 3! Don’t make me choose!

Slip Silk Pillowcase

AUD95 GBP85 USD89

“ANTI AGING. ANTI SLEEP CREASE. ANTI BED HEAD.” Consider me sold, and tell Santa to put one in the sleigh for me tonight! I’m sure by now you know all about the benefits of snoozing on silk, and what sets Slip's Silk Pillowcases apart from the crowd is they use the highest grade (6A) long fiber mulberry silk. There's multiple colours to chose from to match any decor. Your frizz-free future awaits!

Mason Pearson Bristle/Nylon Popular Brush BN1

AUD325 GBP201 USD240

Are you like me and you’ve been using the same brush you bought from the supermarket for the last decade? Firstly, don’t be like me. Secondly, if you are like me, it’s time we both up our brush game! After a decade of plastic bristles, it’s time to treat your tresses. 130 years of craftsmanship has delivered one of the world's most renowned brushes. If you think the price is hefty, just know that this brush comes with a brush cleaner and a 12 month warranty. We love that value and commitment to quality.

Chanel La Creme Main 

AUD87 GBP30 USD50

This is the only hand cream I’d be willing to accept for Christmas (I hope my mum never reads this, and if she does, the truth hurts, I'm sorry). It’s Chanel. The packaging is so chic, one would be forgiven for mistaking the little white egg as luxurious Chanel-branded airpod case. Skin is softened, nails are strengthened, luxe level 1000 is achieved.

Skinceuticals C E Ferulic Vitamin C Serum

AUD233 GBP150 USD169

This serum has been in the conversation for best vitamin c serums for a few years now and,  according to dermatologists, is the gold standard. At Christmas time we deserve the best, so this naturally made the list as the must-have skincare item. Vitamin C is a necessity in your skincare routine, promising to battle hyperpigmentation, skin dullness, dark marks, and sagging skin. This one is particularly talked about because of the perfect marriage of the top 3 ingredients (Vitamin C, Vitamin E, & Ferulic Acid) to deliver scientifically proven results. MMM warning: smells like hotdog water, but completely worth it for the benefits.

Rae Morris Travel Set

AUD489 GBP272 USD312

Is Rae Morris one of MMM’s top MUA/Entrepreneur crushes? You bet she is. And she makes the best brushes in the game! It’s finally time to up your brush game, and we love the Travel Set for its innovative magnetic stand and chic compact size. It’s perfect for traveling on holiday, or for traveling to work. 7 brushes handpicked by the legend herself, your face deserves this.

If you weren’t aware, your SPF needs a wardrobe, and Ultra Violette has come up with the best option we've seen to kit it out for the year ahead. 6 full size products await, with 4 face sunscreens, 1 hand and body cream, and 1 lip balm, all SPF 50 for maximum sun protection.
