Boots shoppers love ‘wonderful’ Christmas crackers full of premium beauty treats

Beauty lovers can get their hands on some luxury makeup must-haves from big brands at a fraction of their usual price with a new nifty Christmas stocking filler option at Boots.

The high street retailer is offering limited edition Beauty Christmas Crackers, available exclusively on the Boots website, which swap out the jokes and paper crowns for a selection of mini makeup products. Featuring eyeshadow, mascara, lip gloss, brow pencils and more, there are plenty of treats packed in to these festive gift sets.

Whether for yourself or a loved one, the crackers offer the perfect chance to try out a range of bestselling brands without committing to full size products – or splashing out on the full price tag. The sets were quickly praised as “wonderful” and “fab” by shoppers when Boots shared a glimpse of them on Instagram.

There are two crackers up for grabs – the cheapest is the Teal Beauty Christmas Treats Cracker, which is priced at £30 and contains five premium makeup products worth a total of £63.43. Packaged in a classy Christmas cracker-style gift box, this set includes treats from Fenty, Urban Decay, Huda, Too Faced and Laura Mercier.

Here’s the full list of what’s inside the Teal cracker:

  • Fenty Beauty Brow MVP Sculpting Wax Pencil & Styler (Full size 1.3g)
  • Urban Decay All Nighter Face Primer Deluxe (5ml)
  • Too Faced Lip Injection Extreme Doll-Size Plumping Lip Gloss (2.8g)
  • Huda Beauty Legit Lashes Mascara Mini (2 x 3.5ml)
  • Laura Mercier Caviar Stick Eye Shadow in Rose Gold (0.5g)

There’s also the Blue Beauty Christmas Treats Cracker, which has a price tag of £35 and features five more high-end makeup treats worth a total of £77.80 – meaning if you snap up both crackers, you’ll be getting about £140 worth of beauty products for £65. This one also includes little luxuries from Benefit, BareMinerals, Iconic London, It Cosmetics and Huda.

Here’s what’s inside the Blue cracker:

  • Benefit Cosmetics 24hr Brow Setter (2ml)
  • It Cosmetics Superhero Mascara (5ml)
  • BareMinerals PrimeTime Original Pore Minimizing Primer Deluxe Sample (7ml)
  • Iconic London Enrich & Elevate Eyeliner – (Full size 2 x 0.4ml)
  • Huda Beauty Matte Obsessions Eyeshadow Palette Warm – (Full size 7.03g)

Boots recently added more products to its Star Gifts Christmas range, which offers major reductions on gift sets from a number of bestselling brands. The biggest savings to be had among the new additions are on the Lancome Icons gift set, which is exclusive to Boots and comes with four products from the premium brand.

Priced at £45, this gift set includes Lancôme’s Advanced Génifique Serum – which alone is currently priced at £48.75 in the Boots sale – as well as a full-size Hypnôse Mascara and sample sizes of Bi Facil Eye Makeup Remover and Idôle Eau de Parfum, with the collection worth a total of £106 according to Boots. More major savings can be found on the limited edition MAC Frosted Favourites collection, which contains makeup treats worth £103 but has a price tag of just £45 in the Boots sale.

Inside this gift set is the MAC Fix+ Stay Over setting spray, MACStack Mascara, Squirt Plumping Gloss Stick, Lip Pencil, and a mini Hyper Real Serumizer packaged together in a gift box perfect for Christmas. Read more about Boots’ latest Christmas gift offers here.
