Luxury beauty Christmas gifts for 2016 are here and more lust-worthy than ever.

Think uber-luxe packaging, gold-infused products, Swarovski crystal-studded everything and more lipsticks than you’ll ever know what to do with.

These skincare, makeup and haircare buys are so covetable, you may find yourself concocting questionable plans to get your hands on them... (and then keeping them all for yourself because, y’know, you deserve it).

Whether you’re willing to say goodbye to your bank balance, or just fancy a spot of festive window shopping, take a look through our round-up of some of the most expensive cosmetic Christmas presents on the market this year:

  • Crème De La Mer Swarovski Crystal Edition
    La Mer
    £1,000 from cremedelamer.co.uk

    Just when you thought Crème De La Mer couldn't get any fancier, they've only gone and covered the entire tub in Swarovski crystals. Opulence.
  • Christian Louboutin Rouge Loubilaque Lip Lacquer
    Christian Louboutin
    £60 from selfridges.com

    Like a pair of Louboutins for your lips, which sounds weird, but will make perfect sense when people in the street start falling to their knees and crying because the packaging is so beautiful.
  • Large Limited Holiday Edition Baies Candle
    Diptyque
    £210 from diptyqueparis.co.uk

    Not only will this candle scent your home with the beauty blogger-approved scent of delicate roses and blackcurrant leaves, it is also big and heavy enough to smash a regular-sized Diptyque candle, which officially makes you a Very Important Person.
  • Estée Lauder Limited Edition Gold Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II
    Estée Lauder
    £72 from houseoffraser.com

    *rolls eyes at basic brown bottle of Advanced Night Repair*
  • La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Soufflé Body Cream
    La Prairie
    £218 from laprairie.co.uk

    Newsflash: It's time to stop spreading caviar on your blinis and start rubbing it all over your body instead.
  • By Kilian Customisable Mini Carafe Set
    By Kilian
    £400 to £480, from Kilian Boutiques

    Perfumer Kilian Hennessy, grandson of the founder of the LVMH group (Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton), pretty much has luxury running through his veins so you know these sensual scents - housed in engraved carafes - are legit.
  • Charlotte Tilbury Hot Lips Luxury Collection
    Charlotte Tilbury
    £250 from charlottetilbury.com

    Do you really need 12 new lipsticks? You do now, especially when part of the proceeds go towards the Women for Women International charity.
  • Oribe Gold Lust Repair & Restore Collection
    Oribe
    £95 from net-a-porter.com

    This damage-reversing haircare set makes dropping the best part of £100 on something that's quite literally going down the drain actually seem quite appealing.
  • By Terry Gold Baume de Rose Trio Deluxe
    By Terry
    £250 from net-a-porter.com

    Why have one Baume de Rose when you could have three? These limited edition lip balms are enriched with real white, yellow and rose gold particles for a truly swanky shimmer.
  • Tom Ford Titanium Smoke Eye Colour Quad
    Tom Ford
    £64 from houseoffraser.co.uk

    The most expensive eyeshadow quad on the market, because your eyelids are worth it (and so is the shimmery, buttery colour pay-off).
  • Show Beauty Swarovski Crystallised Pure Treatment Oil
    Show Beauty
    £155 from harrods.com

    More Swarvovski crystal-studded packaging from socialite and billionaire heiress Tamara Ecclestone's haircare brand (we wouldn't expect anything less).
  • Révérence de Bastien Black Diamond Scrub Foot Exfoliant
    Révérence de Bastien
    £81 from net-a-porter.com

    Nothing says 'disposable income' like cleaning your feet with black diamond and mother of pearl particles.
  • Artis Elite Gold 10 Set
    Artis
    £396 from harrods.com

    The best makeup brushes on the market now come finished with 24-karat gold. Kylie Jenner doesn't even have these ones yet, you guys!
  • Dolce & Gabbana Lizard-Effect Leather Vanity Case
    Dolce & Gabanna
    £2,400 from net-a-porter.com

    So, you've spent your life savings on makeup... you'll probably want to make sure it's all protected in style too. Just to be safe.
  • Holistic Silk Black Monogrammed Eye Mask
    Holistic Silk
    £66 from holisticsilk.com

    There is officially no bougier way to block out the haters (and catch up on your beauty sleep) than a lavender infused, baby-soft silk eye mask personalised with your own initials.
  • Balmain Hair Golden Spa Brush
    Balmain Hair
    £119 from balmainhair.com

    If you have 24-carat gold makeup brushes, you're going to want a 24-carat gold hairbrush too. Trust us on this one.
