Stila Colour Me Pretty Convertible Colour Palette, £19.50


This isn’t just one of the best Christmas palettes, it’s one of the best palettes ever. Here’s why: it gathers together the loveliest, prettiest, most flattering shades of Stila’s iconic Convertible Colour lip and cheek cremes (plus one exclusive highlighter) in a sleek, durable tin. These are the creme blushes you will find in beauty editors’ make-up bags and top make-up artists’ kits the world over. Professionals love them for their easy blendability, creamy, dewy finish and gorgeous soft shades (they look good on literally every skin tone). In fact, those in the know love them so much that when I Instagrammed this palette a few months ago, two glossy beauty editors immediately got in touch with me to find out how I’d got my hands on one first. It is that in demand. Hardly surprising when you consider the price. Full sized, individual Convertible Colors normally cost £16.50 a pop. These are only a wee bit smaller and you’re getting five for under twenty quid. Seriously, this palette is an absolute corker. Get it for the make-up lover in your life. She will love you forever.
