Thought beauty gift sets were destined to be left at the back of the bathroom cupboard? This super-luxe selection should change your mind. 

Unwanted bath bombs and palettes with colours you’d never wear… Christmas beauty gift sets haven’t always had the best reputation.

But we can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t love to find these one-wrap wonders - from the likes of Caudalie, Philosophy, Benefit and Laura Mercier - stashed under their tree.

Benefit Magical Brow Stars Set

If anyone knows how to mastermind a good brow product, it’s the brains over at Benefit. This kit offers six different tools including some of their best-sellers - worth a whopping £118 if bought individually but just £45 together.

Laura Mercier Luxe Indulgences Ambre and Vanille Collection

Who said bath and body sets were boring? This is as decadent as they come with a bath honey, body wash, body creme and eau de toilette all for £58. 

NARS Riot Velvet Matte Lip Pencil Set

The contents of this are as fabulous as the case they come in. It boasts four shades of the iconic punchy lip crayons for you to test out at just £49.

Bare Minerals Meteor Shower
