Last night I attended an event in Space.NK. Dublin, showcasing their Christmas gifts for 2014. Beauty lovers consider it their mecca and it's easy to see why; ceiling to floor shelves packed with some of the more higher end cosmetic delights and at this time of year in particular it's just that little bit more special. I could easily not bother writing any wish list ever again and instead just write blog post after blog post with only the shops address and that would be more than enough because you see, I pretty much want everything they sell. If you're looking for a gift for a loved one or indeed for yourself (I think I'll be buying myself a "well done for surviving the year, ya big trooper!" present) then this is where you need to be going. I've only a limited selection of what you'll find in store here as I was rushing on my way somewhere but I did spot plenty of make-up palettes, nail polish sets, gloriously scented candles and super comforting body lotions. Just to point out that I didn't get all of the prices so these are mostly in sterling (but to be honest the Space.NK. conversion seems to be spot on from what I've checked) and there's a few in euro too. Peruse the photos below and let me know in the comments what you'd ask Santy for!
Stocking fillers/Tree Decorations:
Eve Lom Kiss Mix Lip Balm (love this stuff!), £16.
Aromatherapy Associates London "The Star", mini bath oil, £10.
This Works 2 mini sleep aids. £10.
Laura Mercier eye transformer trio (£25), Lipstick Queen "Chinatown" set of three lip crayons (can't find a price for this one, apologies).
Nails & Hand Care
The cutest gingerbread house ever! Four sparkly Christmas polishes from Ciaté, £25.
Caudalie set of three hand creams (in the background), £12, Laura Mercier set of four hand creams (at the front), £25.
A Spellbound book of three stunning nail shades, that middle sparkly blue is just gorgeous. €28 (a single bottle is €15, so big saving there!).
Body Lotions/Skin Care
Oh Eve Lom, you beauty. I love her cleanser!! This would be a gorgeous gift and cheaper than buying these individually. £65.
Great sets from Ren, including their best seller Rose Otto on the left (£34) and an exclusive Rose Otto set on the right (£49), containing award winning products.
SWOON. Laura Mercier set of 6 Patisserie Souffle Body Creme collection. WANT. £45.
Life Jump Start Zest For Life- body wash, sugar scrub, candle and body lotion. This will be a much appreciated addition to anyones shower come January! £28.
This Works- Perchance To Dream, set of 4 full size products to aid sleep- candle, bath soak, dream cream and pillow spray (I have both the candle and pillow spray and if you know someone suffering from Insomnia I think this would be a really thoughtful gift). £65.
Stunning candles that all smell amazing (I can vouch for that, I gave them all a good sniff!). The Diptyque set of three (£78) are great for Winter but not overpowering in a cinnamon/sugar/pine tree kinda way.
Make Up Palettes & Sets
Laura Mercier Artist's Eye and Cheek Palette, £45.
By Terry; Give Me 5 Smoky Eyes kit. 5 full sized eye products with gift bag, £96.
Kevin Aucoin The Look Book Eye, Cheek & Lip palette. Love that packaging and the two eyeshadows on the right..gorgeous! £38.
Set of 6 Laura Mercier Caviar sticks eye collection, €55. These guys are raved about by bloggers!
And the much lusted after Hourglass Ambient blush palette. So purdy but pricey at £56. (it is back in stock though in case you were thinking of getting it!)
And that's your lot. Apologies that I didn't get all the prices but you can check out the Space.NK. website HERE for more details, or pop along to Grafton St- just prepare to do some drooling!
