Sharing is caring!

The festive season at end of the year is often when we cut loose, indulge a little and pamper loved ones – and ourselves – with special treats that we may not ordinarily spend on.

For those who have sisters and close girlfriends to shop for but are out of ideas for awesome gifts – you know, the sort that light up faces and stick in the mind – it’s worth checking out the many beautifully designed makeup compacts that are launched at this time every year.

Usually limited edition products, they’re not only gorgeous but useful too, housing multiple shades of vivid, flattering makeup to help you look fab. Here, we pick out some of the most eye-catching compacts worth a pretty penny.
