What I got for Christmas

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! It has to be my favourite Christmas yet, there were tears of happiness and just pure joy over the past couple of days seeing everyone that I love. It simply is the greatest time of the year.

Now I know Christmas isn’t all about gifts but I thought I would do the generic post of what I got for Christmas. I love these posts as I am super nosy I am only going to show beauty wise what I got as I would be here forever. I do just want to mention one present that wasn’t beauty related that is probably the most thoughtful gift I have ever received

My lovely sister brought me a meal at The Shard in London for 2. I cried my eyes out as it was the most perfect gift for me. I love London and I have always wanted to go to the Shard. I cannot thank her enough for the gift and I cannot wait to go.

I am truly grateful for everything I received and I cannot thank everyone enough for making this Christmas truly special. Obviously I am not bragging I just wanted to share with you what I received on the day.

YSL – Black Opium Perfume. 

I smelt this a few months back & fell in love with this scent. I’m awful at describing scents but it is on the sweeter side and I could not be happier to add this to my perfume collection.

Lush – Snow Fairy Shower Gel.

Now this is my all time favourite scent from lush and I love it at Christmas time when this comes out. I actually received multiple bottles of this which I am hoping will last me a good couple of months of the year before it comes out again.

NARS – All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation.

I have wanted a new foundation for a while and I read a load of reviews and decided that this is the one I wanted to go for. I went into Space NK to get colour matched and to try it and I fell in love. I am so happy I have this foundation in my life, it is simply amazing! I will be writing a full review on this so keep an eye out for this on my blog!

Liz Earle – Cleanse & Polish 

A firm favourite in my skincare routine and my lovely boyfriend took a sneaky picture a few months back while we were shopping and picked this up for me. I am now stocked up, so hopefully I won’t run out anytime soon.

YSL – Mascara Volume Effet Faux Cils 

Now, I haven’t heard much about this product and I have never owned a YSL mascara. I am so excited to try this out and see how it works on my lashes.

Charlotte Tilbury – Eye Shadow Pallet The Dolche Vita 

I have a quad from Charlotte Tilbury and I loved the formula of the eye shadows. They are beautiful so I was so happy to receive this and add it to my collection. The colours are absolutely beautiful. I cannot wait to start playing around with this to see what looks I can achieve.

Kiko – Power Pro Nail Lacquer in 98 

I love Kiko as a brand, I have a few of their nail polishes so I am excited to try this one out as I haven’t had this formula before. I love the colour, it is a beautiful berry red colour with a little bit of sparkle. Perfect for this time of year!

Beauty Blender 

I love using beauty blenders to apply my concealer and I was so happy to receive a new one as my current one is not looking to pretty.

Kiko – Velvet Passion Matte Lipstick in 314

I love this formula of lipstick and I was so happy to receive a shade I haven’t got. This is a beautiful purple shade which I love, I am really loving purple on my lips at the moment so I am super excited to put this on my lips.

Elizabeth Arden – Moisturizing Lipstick in Pretty Pink 

I have never tried anything from Elizabeth Arden before and a lipstick is always a winner for me. My lovely boyfriend surprisingly picked this out for me and I can’t wait to try this out, again I will be posting a review on this so I will let you know what I think.

NARS – Radiant Creamy Concealer in Vanilla 

I have wanted this concealer for the longest time. So many people have raved about this concealer and I am so happy I can finally add this to my collection. I really hope it lives up to my expectations.

What was your favourite gift you received this Christmas?

  1. Awesome gifts! Can’t wait to read your review on the NARS All Day Luminous foundation. I have lately been more into looking dewy rather than matte so I am on the market for a luminous foundation! Can you do a review on the Charlotte Tilbury eye quad too? I have been wanting one of those as well!
