Selfridges is having 10% off this weekend for the beauty department. 20% off for the rest of the store. Here’s some really interesting items that I would consider putting on my shopping list.
Dior’s exclusive Backstage Beauty Box, the ultimate make-up vanity kit. A capsule collection of best selling make-up and professional tools to create a catwalk perfect finish. Retailing at £250.
I have heard good things about Dior quints (GBP 50) and I love their skincare as well (I would be posting skincare reviews on Dior products in the future, so do keep a look out for them). I spy a set of brushes and one of their famous diorshow mascaras (GBP 18-19). If a face brush and cheek brush are worth GBP 50 each, i reckon this would be a worth while set to purchase.
Creme de La Mer
The Luxurious Keepsake Box (left of picture) contains the essential Crème De La Mer moisturising cream. Retailing at £795, exclusively at Selfridges. Comes with metal spatula.
The Vanity Case (right of picture) contains everything from lip balm to Crème De La Mer’s infamous moisturizing cream. Retailing at £7,500, exclusively at Selfridges. If I am not wrong, I spy a Lip Balm, Creme de La mer – GBP90, Eye Concentrate – GBP120. The other 3 bottles should be the Hydrating Infusion, Lifting serum and probably the concentrate??
Apparently the cases are created by Viscount David Linley constructed in sycamore wood and beautifully patterned in ocean shagreen. The advert goes on to say that one of these would create an unforgettable Christmas gift…I totally agree! I mean…look at the prices!! Check out the metal spatula…perhaps its make of silver??
I have no idea about the sycamore wood and beautiful pattern but I am a huge fan of La mer skincare (I will post individual skincare reviews of my La mer products in the future, so do keep a look out for them), but I would rather spend more of the money on the actual items which would help deliver results on my skin rather than having something look nice on my vanity table (hehe…having said that if anyone wants to give me one of these babies…it would off course be rude to reject it right??)
