Kat Von D, Viktor and Rolf and more

Last week, I delved into a Debenhams Christmas extravaganza at Somerset House to see what they have in store for 2018.

Here’s a look at a few of my favourites from the day. I don’t have all prices and launch dates just yet, but I’ll update as and when I find them.

My top picks…

Debenhams Advent Calendar, £70 or £50 with a minimum spend 

For the first time ever, Debenhams have created an advent calendar and it has totally been worth the wait. The brands included are fantastic: MAC Cosmetics, Makeup Forever and Too Faced to name a few.

Not only is this competitively priced against other calendars (you can see my round up here, I’m updating each time I find a new one) but it lowers even more in price if you buy it in conjunction with other items at Debenhams. All of your Christmas shopping under one roof.

Designworks Inc Cosmic Notebooks 

Now I know these aren’t strictly beauty related, but I am super into astrology and also cute stationary so these zodiac books were a match made in heaven. I love the cosmic inspirations that seem to have filtered into the last few years of Christmas gifting. A total treasure for anyone who enjoys a more spiritual way of life.

Kat Von D 10 Year Anniversary 

Kat Von D is celebrating her anniversary with a pop of colour in this decadent new eyeshadow palette. All of the packaging across these pieces is lavish, heavy and gold. If you’re a fan of the brand I think this will be total collector’s heaven.

House 99 by David Beckham 

One of the more exciting launches for men this year is House 99 by David Beckham. Let’s be honest, buying for men is a total chore at the best of times, so at least this is something we can tick off the list because who isn’t going to want to look and smell a little bit more like David?

Bobbi Brown Miniatures 

For anything complexion, Bobbi Brown is one of my all time favourite brands. They do illuminators like no other, I think we’ve all had a Shimmer Brick at some point in our lives, so imagine my joy to find these miniature highlighters as part of the Christmas line up!

A little tip for you. Pink Opal, pictured here, is the closest thing I can find to Victoria Beckham’s Estee Lauder Modern Mercury Highlighter. MM is one of the best products of recent years for me so you best believe I stockpiled, but this is the closest thing if you missed out on that limited edition gem first time.

Viktor and Rolf Christmas Bottles

Whether you like the sweet, floral notes of Flowerbomb or the caramel, chocolatey richness of Bon Bon, Viktor and Rolf’s fragrances are truly good enough to eat. Viktor and Rolf stand out to me as a brand that truly know how to capture the magic of Christmas. All over the UK, they host elaborate pop-ups each year and celebrate with beautiful wrapping and accessories.

This year, their limited edition bottles are frosted with bells on and beautiful. Fragrance is one of those innately intimate things that ultimately is best chosen by the person, but as far as gifts go, you can’t really go wrong with a treasured bottle of Flowerbomb.

There were so many cute things at the Debenhams Christmas show including a whole world of gins and Game of Thrones Monopoly. Check out some of their home decorations too…
