Sagittarius SZN: 7 Beauty gifts for the jet-setting fire sign in your life
That archer beat
Happy Sag season! Falling between the dates of November 21 and December 21, this season is all about the fire sign in your life. Unfortunately for most Sag signs, birthdays tend to get lost in the sea of holiday season stress—that's why it is absolutely crucial to up the ante on the gifting efforts this month.
Whether you're hoping to blow them away on their birthdays with the best of luxury beauty (or you're just looking for a "just because" beauty gift for a special person), we've got you covered. From sleek facial devices to this season's greatest collectibles, here's your foolproof guide to birthday gifting:
If there is anything that rings true for all Sagittarians, it is that they are physically unable to plan ahead. It's not their fault—they are just a spontaneous sign by nature. However, that does mean that your own Sagittarius craves convenience in their beauty routine; preferably something that can have them ready to go in five minutes flat (just in case they've agreed to a last-minute dinner date in T-10, of course). That's where the Foreo UFO 2 Black Skincare Set (RM1,250) comes in handy.
This nifty device has been designed to give you a full facial in just one minute, with warming, cooling, T-Sonic pulsations, and eight LED lights to suit any skin concern.
Being a risk-taker by nature, your Sag probably gets into a few sticky situations—maybe they've set out on a spontaneous beach holiday... sans sun protection. Alternatively, perhaps they've decided to pop that zit at home after all (sorry, these are the riskiest situations this writer can think up after two years in this pandemic). Either way, the crazy reckless lifestyle was bound to take its toll some way or another.
That's where the Sisleya L’Integral Radiance Anti-Dark Spot Serum (RM1,850). This smoothing, brightening, and moisturising serum from Sisley Paris is youth in a bottle—after all, the best gift to give is that of radiance divine.
One-of-a-kind and absolutely beautiful? Sounds just like a Sagittarius, eh? That's what makes the Gucci Beauty Limited-Edition Rouge à Lèvres Mat (RM160) the perfect gift this season.
The limited-edition collection features gold hearts and stars in three staple shades. It's bound to be a crowd-pleaser on any vanity and is sure to impress in any purse.
As we all know, travel has been shelved for the better part of two years now. Understandably, it has been tough-going for most Sagittarians considering their notorious travel bug, but while you can't push for international borders to open, you can transport them to their dream locations in other ways.
Namely, use the power of your Sagittarian's senses. Specifically, use the Essentials Fragrance Collection Set (RM602) from Jo Malone London to put your Sag's olfactory senses to good use. Featuring three of the brand's signature scents—Lime Basil and Mandarin, Peony and Blush Suede, and English Pear and Freesia—in cologne, body and hand wash, and scented candle format, your giftee will be transported to the lush English countryside in the springtime.
Known as the jet-setter of the signs, any Sagittarius is familiar with the virtues of a good tan. That's why the NARS Unwrapped High Profile Cheek Palette (RM230) is one of our picks for the best gifts.
This holiday palette tackles two birds with one stone (read: Christmas gifts and birthday offerings). Outfitted with a range of stunning bronzer, blusher, and highlighter shades, there's no need to embark on a weekend retreat to get that fresh-off-the-beach glow!
The best thing about all Sagittarians is their unconditional optimism. Seldom seen without a sparkle in their eyes and a smile on their face, this fire sign brings forth good vibes and lifted spirits. So, the best gift to get your archer is by far the gift of sparkle.
This limited edition Laura Mercier Shimmer and Glow Caviar Stick Trio (RM150) ticks all the boxes—it's beautiful, creamy, and convenient to use.
Fun fact: the Sagittarius sign is closely associated with the colour purple. So, for their special day, why not treat them to a trio of stunning lip colours from MAC that features their signature shade in a stunning ombre finish?
The MAC Cosmetics Kiss Of Magic Lip Kit includes three of the brand's best-selling lipsticks, Retro Matte Lipstick in Ruby Woo, the Powder Kiss Lipstick in Devoted to Chili, and the Love Me Lipstick in Bated Breath.
