The Nykaa team has been more nice than naughty this year, and have made their secret beauty wishlists for Santa. Check out what beauty loot they’re praying they find under their tree and maybe you’ll get some gifting inspiration (yes, gifts for yourself are totally legit!) - By Parizaad Khan Sethi
I've been looking for that perfect fragrance for the longest time! Something that's appropriate for day or night and causal dinners or black-tie events. Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino EDP is perfect—breezy enough for brunch and powerful enough to last you through a night of partying. A good perfume is an investment worth making, but I'll be really happy to find one under my Christmas tree!
Everyone has that one makeup product they have to try from every brand. Mine is concealer. So many people have recommended I try the Estée Lauder Double Wear Stay In Place Flawless Concealer SPF 10. The brand claims that it is their highest coverage concealer that makes imperfections disappear and it doesn't cake, streak or settle into fine lines or pores. I'm sold!
I’d also love to get Bobbi Brown Luxe Lip Color in Plum Brandy. It’s is a gorgeous, statement-making shade for the party season.
I’m also looking forward to trying Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick. I think it would be a perfect go-to product for getting my glow on this party season!
My daily makeup is quite minimal and I'm all about multi-taskers. I love the idea behind Clinique Pop Oil Lip & Cheek Glow—a 'tint' with a 'pop' for my lips and cheeks is exactly up my alley. It's easy to apply, does not bulk up my handbag and is handy for touch-ups through the day.
