I’m talking about all things, sparkly, fancy and inspired by that luxe life.

Starting us off, from Quo Cosmetics (available exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart) is the Quo Highlight & Glow PaletteThis palette contains six big pans of highlight, embossed in a studded geo pattern and features some out-of-the-box shades like a green, lavender and molten gold. The Quo All That Glitters Brush Set includes 10 brushes with silver ferrules and handles with floating gold flecks. Twinkle, twinkle!

Something about being showered with treats throughout the whole month screams “luxe life” to me. The L’Occitane en Provence Luxury Advent Calendar has 24 presents for the 24 days leading up to Christmas. And the layout is so cool! You rotate the towers towards or away from each other and they reveal new drawers, all while staying connected – similar to a Jacob’s Ladder toy.

From the 2018 holiday collection, we have the Lise Watier Neiges Highlighting Powder and Neiges Face and Corsage Brush. The highlight is so beautiful that I’m putting off swatching it, just so I can keep that intricate embossing intact. The brush looks like it’s dipped in snow, with a sparkly handle, perfect for dusting on some glow.

Yes, I included this in last year’s gift guide, and I’m doing it again! Winter is cruel to our heels, and what better way to take care of them than by smoothing them out with diamonds? The limited edition Amope Pedi Perfect Gift Set includes a travel bag, a foot file with finely ground diamond crystals (which I use year round) and a replacement head. If you’re going to be pampering your feet, why not do it in style?

I mean….I could start at end my rationale for including this palette in this gift guide just by saying that it’s Charlotte Tilbury….but I’ll elaborate. The Charlotte Tilbury Stars in Your Eyes Palette oozes luxury. The packaging is that classic Tilbury burgundy with sparkles and the selection of shades inside are warm, toasty and shimmery. It’s divided into four separate looks, or you can mix it up and create your own colour combination – the possibilities have me jazzed to play with this piece of art.

Last but not least is the Too Faced Diamond Light Multi-Use Diamond Fire Highlighter. This one is shaped like a great big square-cut diamond! The colour shift in this highlight is pretty stunning too.

Stay tuned for the final addition to gift guide week!
