Just a few more sleeps before Christmas and if you’re scrambling for last-minute gift ideas (totally understandable, BTW, we’ve all been there!), you’ve come to the right place cos we’re here to reveal to you the best picks out there, so that you know where to go when you hit the malls, as going without a plan can and will be mind-boggling!

1. Dior Diorific The Atelier of Dreams Long-Wearing True Colour Lipstick in 075 Rouge Capucine 

Fresh off Dior Beauty’s 2021 Christmas collection of four limited-edition lipsticks is this high-colour and long-hold satin lippie in 075 Rouge Capucine, a luminous red that’s bound to catch anyone’s attention. As a timeless and highly-coveted item, the Diorific lipstick stands out at a glance thanks to its solid golden couture case that resembles the figure 8 silhouette, which echoes the lucky number of Monsieur Christian Dior. As you open up the casing, you’ll be blown away by an intricate motif that depicts the architectural lines of the emblematic façade of the House of Dior adorning the lipstick itself. If you can’t bring yourself to use this piece of luxury, we totally get why!

2. Elemis Pro-collagen Rose Cleansing Balm

Elemis is known for its highly-effective cleansing balms that deeply cleanse, smooth and hydrate skin in one go, and among the variety offered by the brand, we’re obsessed with the Pro-Collagen Rose Cleansing Balm! Infused with English Rose Oleo Extract, this super cleansing treatment balm smells like a dream and easily dissolves makeup and impurities, leaving you with radiant, petal-soft skin. Small but mighty, it can be used daily as a cleanser or weekly as a nourishing facial mask. All you'll need to do is warm a pea-sized amount on your palms and massage it over your face, neck and décolleté with light, circular movements before emulsifying it and washing it off.

3. Komono ‘Kate’ Animal Tan Watch

An outstanding pick from Komono, one of the latest accessory brands in town that originated from Antwerp, Belgium, the ‘Kate’ Animal Tan watch is the sleeker, feminine version of the ‘Konrad’ or an updated ‘Moneypenny’, which is also available in Animal Black for a more understated option, as well as a range of plain colours for those who prefer a minimalist look. We love the ‘Kate’ in Animal Tan for its versatility and edge, which makes a great pairing for someone who loves to don simple or plain outfits. Armed with a Japanese Quartz Movement, a leather strap with a stainless steel back and water-resistant case, this watch makes the perfect gift for your BFF or even yourself! 

Shop the ‘Kate’ Animal Tan Watch (RM379) online at The Watch Library or Time Zone and on Lazada, Shopee or Zalora, or in store at Vernakular Store, Time Zone Gallery Ampang, Time Zone IOI City Mall Putrajaya and Time Zone Sogo KL.

4. Lovisa '2022 Disco' Drop Earrings

While 2020 and 2021 will forever go down in our books as the most unexpected years of our lives where we lived through a pandemic, multiple MCOs and then some, we’re optimistic that 2022 will bring about lots of changes, good vibes and success. Therefore, it’s time to bring out those disco balls, start meaningful conversations and make new connections at that NYE party you’ll be heading to while ringing in the New Year in OTT style with this pair of dazzling danglers that are totally on-point and affordable but will make you look like a million bucks!

Shop the '2022 Disco' Drop Earrings (RM63.50) at Lovisa stores in the Klang Valley.

5. Nars Unwrapped High Profile Cheek Palette

If we had to name a dream cheek palette that we never knew we needed before, this would be it! Packaged in a shiny fuchsia rose casing with a 3D tape-style logo on the cover, this holiday-themed cheek palette features six limited-edition shades of blushers and contour and highlight powders in one of Nars’ most innovative formulas. The assortment of shimmering shades includes High Demand (a shimmering cinnamon), Hit It Off (a shimmering candy pink), Just Lust (a shimmering raspberry), Nude Revue (a shimmering bronze), Showdown (a shimmering coral) and Spin Off (a shimmering mauve pink). Pick your shade(s) according to your mood or day of the week, or blend two or three shades for a distinct finish. If you’re travelling or on the go, the shades can even double up as eyeshadow!
