Containing a ‘best of’ mix of miniature products including a YSL Rouge Pur Couture Mini lipstick, a 30ml Kiehl’s Crème De Corps and a 2ml Lancome Hypnôse Classic Mascara (and we all know Lancome’s mascaras are the best), these won’t stick around for long.

Six crackers contain Génifique 7ml, Visionnaire 7ml, Bi–Facil 30ml, L’Absolu Rouge Mini, Juicy Tube 7ml, Hypnôse Mascara Mini, a festive hat and a beauty tip – not bad for £38.
