Do you know what I miss? Being a child at Christmas. I miss the magic of the festive period- was Santa real? Why did we have to leave him my Dad’s favourite snacks? The excitement of not being able to sleep on Christmas Eve, and of course the build up, when you’d sit and circle everything you wanted in a catalogue, which you’d then proudly present, to your slightly horrified parents- ‘I don’t expect it all obviously’ didn’t even make them un widen their eyes.
As an adult, it’s not the same is it? And something I always struggle with, is when people ask you what you want for Christmas. When you’re an adult, you don’t really know what to ask for, as usually you buy whatever you want yourself. A couple of years ago, the only thing I could think of when my Dad asked me, was a window vacuum. I wanted one to clean the shower, so that’s what my Dad got me. It was a low point, as it made me realise ‘wow I’m officially old.’
If like me, you always struggle with what to ask for, today I have your back, as I’m about to show you a gift set that you are for sure going to want to add to your wish list and also want to buy for everyone you know too.
So let me introduce you to the Ted Baker Ted’s Bouquet Cosmetic Collection, and yes isn’t it seriously DREAMY. Yes so dreamy it deserved to be written in caps.
In fact the whole of the Ted Baker Christmas gift range which is exclusive to Boots is dreamy, if you love rose gold (check), pink (check) and floral prints (check) you will love all of these. You may want it all, and go back to your child ways of circling everything in the Boots Christmas Gift Guide!
But today I’m going to be talking just about the Ted’s Bouquet Cosmetic Collection, a make up gift set, which oh my gosh, deserves all of the heart eye emojis in the world. I mean just look at it all! From the rose gold eyelash curlers, to the stunning lipstick, the gift set is absolutely gorgeous and is so glamorous yet delicate. I found it interesting to learn that the Ted Baker range was inspired by a curious trinket discovered at a New York auction, which explains the art deco feel to the gift sets.
So aside from being seriously pretty, what is in the set?
Well this gift set consists of 12 full size products and tools which will add a touch of glamour from yesteryear to your make up bag. The set is a lavish collection of beauty must haves that are almost too pretty to use, and you’ll want to display them out on your dressing table for everyone to see.
In the gift set you get;
An Eyeshadow Trio which consists of three neutral shades; a pale pink, taupe and a warm brown shade, perfect for a day to day slightly smokey eye.
A Rose Gold Eyeshadow Brush: which is perfect for blending, for said smokey eye, or for just displaying on your dressing table as it’s almost too pretty to use.
An Eyebrow Pencil : in a medium brown shade to help define and fill in brows.
Mascara: with a plastic wand which helps to separate and lengthen lashes.
There is also some very beaut Rose Gold Eyelash Curlers: which will help to curl your lashes (funnily enough) and open up your eyes.
A Blush Compact: consisting of a pretty coral blush and pale pink highlighter to add to your cheeks and cheekbones.
A Blush Brush: A fluffy brush to apply blusher and highlighter to your cheeks.
Two Tinted Lip Balms: in a nude and red shade (perfect for Christmas parties) I’m wearing the nude shade in the picture above.
Lipstick: A rich dark pink shade, perfect for day to day wear, or build up for a more sultry look.
Two Nail Polishes; a baby pink (my fave) and a festive rich burgundy.
Every product is beautiful, they are all inspired by vintage glamour and the rose gold packaging is gorgeous. The eyeshadows are buttery and pigmented, the lipstick feels creamy and the brushes are so soft. You may think that the products in beauty gift sets aren’t up to the standard as regular beauty products, but this isn’t the case with the Ted Baker gift sets, and I’ve put together a look using some of the products to show you what you can create.
The Ted Baker Ted’s Bouquet Cosmetic Collection is a gorgeous gift, that I am sure anyone would love to receive on Christmas Day. Also I haven’t even told you the best news yet, so this set is usually priced at £45 which is still a really good price for 12 full size high quality make up products, but this is currently one of the star gifts at Boots meaning it’s currently only £22.50.
Amazing. That’s under £2 for each product- they look like they should be about ten times the price of that! You need to snap this up though, either for yourself or for whoever is on your gift list as I have a feeling this will sell out fast!
The Ted Baker Christmas Gifts Collection is available exclusively at Boots, and you’ll be stuck for choice with what set to buy, as they are all blooming beautiful!
Will you be adding this gorgeous Ted Baker gift set to your wish list?
Oh and one last thing, I’m going to be giving away one of these sets on my Instagram next week, so keep your eyes peeled to be in with the chance of winning an early Christmas present for either yourself or someone who would love this gift set!
