A Beauty-Themed Kris Kringle Gift Guide

Jose Mari Chan aside, what else is popular among Filipinos come the early Ber months? Well, it’s the collective, frantic panic of everyone wanting to cross off wish lists and shop the best gifts for family, friends, colleagues, and other social groups, all while avoiding the mall crowds and traffic. Whew.

But don’t fret, Calyxta girls, for there’s always a beauty solution to make your life easier and better! Shop the website and use this Kris Kringle guide to give you a head start on your Christmas shopping. Trust us when we say beauty gifts make the best stocking stuffers!


Who doesn’t love a liquid lippie that gives a plush, long-lasting finish? All the shades of NYX Cosmetics’ Lip Lingerie can be considered an upgrade of your Kris Kringle baby’s usual, every day lip, and its creamy formula and weightless feel is definitely worth trying.

As we can’t really experience coat and sweater weather (a.k.a. the Fall-Winter season that allows us to dress up in layers like in the holiday films!) here in Manila, we’re all for decking your lids in the season’s most dazzling hues instead!

Richly-pigmented, smooth to blend, and feels feather-light, we love how this eye shadow collection from Pink Sugar is all about feeling and translating the Christmas spirit into your daily beauty choices. It’s a great gift for a P300 or above budget, too!

This cult-favorite and Calyxta Beauty Award Winner is the mascara every girl keeps coming back to. Unlike flighty boyfriends and flaky friends, this mascara is reliable and won’t ever fail you. It’s the kind of gift any girl will appreciate!

Well, you know what they all say about it being okay to leave the house with a bare face—but at least do your brows! (and wear SPF!). This brow product is long-wearing and comes with a slanted brush that makes it easy to use, even for beauty beginners. It’s the best P500-worth gift you can give your baby!

The magic of gel polish lets you wear perfectly painted nails for a longer time, without having to worry about chips and cracks. Girl Stuff’s gel polishes are also non-toxic, and have a safe, no-UV, no soak formula. 

The gel collection comes in very holiday-ready metallic and shimmery finishes and bright, bold-colored ones that can be worn to a beach trip on Christmas holiday. Enjoy!
