I know that a lot of readers are wondering what to get their husbands/boyfriends (or even brothers/fathers/male friends) for Christmas.
This is why I have asked “men from my life” what they would like to get – to share with you some ideas. I just hope that now they won’t think that I am getting all those things for them…
I have promised not to give away their names, so here are just the quotes and age group. Most of my male friends are 30-35 but I have asked several younger and several older men, for the variety. 1 “Post shaving products. I’d prefer my favourite brand, but it’s not that important, as long, as they are good” (At least four men said that).
- My recommendation: Geo F Trumper ( and US link). I plan to get some products for my brother and Dad, in fact.
2 “A good facial cream. I have started using them after your (Ed. - that’d be mine) recommendation, and now I can’t imagine not having one. Every men needs it! I love Dior and Shiseido.” (Age group 30-35)
3. ” A new cologne would be amazing. I loveRead More

Their Golden Shock release is not an exception with all the golden tones for the nails and eyes and the red shades for the lips.

I have already posted about some of the amazing lip products that are coming out for AW (part 2 on the way, so stay tuned). And here is a sneak preview of the new palettes that will be released for holidays.
It’s been forever since I’ve bought a big palette, so maybe it’s time to do it! [I have stopped buying them since I never use those anyway, and they just gather dust and I've been trying to de-clutter my place, too. And some palettes are bulky, and do take a lot of space]. Maybe this palette will change the situation.
Now, what about the other items?

Brands are rocking this AW season with all the new lip products releases, I have chosen four very different variants which are worth your attention.
Love a full-on statement matte lip?
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick ( £23) is your best friend then.
According to Charlotte, her new lipsticks, enriched with orchid extract, waxes and oils, don’t dry the lips out, instead feel on like a balm, and give a full on pigmented colour pay off. There are ten shades to choose from.
Want to conquer the World with colour?
NARS Audacious lipstick (£24/$32) is a product for you then.
The name speaks for itself. A gorgeous looking lipstick which is “shamelessly seductive and feels like satin on the lips”, if to believe a press release. There are 40 shades to choose from for aRead More
I have already posted about the new Dior’s eye shadow quints which will be a part of the brand’s Autumn makeup collection. But what other shades of the eye shadows will be available, and what other makeup products are a part of the new collection?
There will be five nail polishes and five lipsticks. Four of each have a corresponding name. My personal favourite has to be Vernis Gel Shine & Long Wear Nail Lacquer in 853 Massai and Rouge Dior Lipstick in Massai 869.
As for other shades, they are:
Tutu 254 and Tutu 354; Bar 317 and Bar 902; Pied-de Poule-977 and Pied-de Poule 206; Carre D’Or 135 and Carre Bleu 796, with lipstick names coming first.
- Montaigne, Versailles, Cuir Cannage
- Candy Choc, Femme-Fleur, Jardin
I love the look of Montaigne, Cuir Cannage and Femme-Fleur.
You can buy them from Selfridges for £42 each.
