First things first: we’re not for a second suggesting that you give up your chocolate eggs this Easter.
What we are suggesting, however, is that much as beauty advent calendars sit happily beside our chocolate chart in December, beauty Easter eggs are a great way to indulge in a little extra gifting for this special occasion. And we certainly wouldn’t be mad if the Easter bunny left us one or two of these…
For 2019, Superdrug is bringing us the best of its affordable fragrance line with this Mandarin and Lime Basil beauty easter egg, which contains a 50ml bottle of the scent. Mirroring the notes of bottles ten times its price, this is a refreshing, citrussy perfume that’ll brighten up Easter morning no end.

As if the pastel pink egg wasn’t pretty enough, the five eyeshadows and two highlighters in the mini palette are equally Instagrammable. There’s four different sets to collect: Flamingo (pictured above), Candy (pinks and purples), Chick (reds and ambers) and Chocolate (browns and neutrals).
