In the world of conspicuous consumption it’s the time of the other C word: Christmas. It’s one of the best times of the year to shop beauty as all the gift sets and bundles make for pretty gifting options. However once the wrapping paper and ribbon have been cleared away, what you’re left with is often the usual shower gel in a sparkly box that feels less festive and more filler. If you’re looking for a beauty gift that’ll be adored well into the new year, we love the recently launched Lilah B. beauty line. A neatly edited collection of four products types in universally flattering shades, the standout element of the range is the tactile white compacts. Looking and feeling like flat rounded pebbles , the lids slide open to reveal the product inside. The protective metal casing stands up to daily bashing around in our makeup bags avoiding the unfortunate drama of a shattered powder compact. Going by the maxim, “Give what you’d like to receive”, we’ll be doing a bulk order of the Divine Duo stain which blends effortlessly onto lips and cheeks for a quick sheer dab of color when you’ve run out of the house bare-faced.
