What I got for Christmas 2017

Hello my lovelies,

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and enjoyed spending time with the ones you love most. I had a great Christmas with all my loved ones and consumed an awful lot of food. Christmas literally is the best for food and I have ate everything in sight! Our family’s main Christmas gift came early this year as we got a puppy at the start of December – I know amazing right!? I absolutely adore him and made our Christmas that little bit more special.

My Christmas presents this year I was well a truly spoiled, like I am every year and I am so thankful for the gifts I have received as although I made a list I didn’t think I would actually receive what was on there. Everyone did so well & I love that people know me so well. I will be sharing with you what beauty gifts I received this year as this is a beauty blog. I posted one of these last year here

I hope you enjoy reading this – just a little disclaimer I am not bragging I’m just nosy and I love reading these posts so I thought I would do one of my own.

Clinique Moisture Surge Gift Set see here

So I love Clinique Moisture Surge, it’s amazing and I asked for it for Christmas and I was REALLY hoping someone would buy me this – obviously this is one better because its a set. My boyfriend really does know me so well. So the set includes the Moisture Surge Moisteriser, an overnight face mask, concentrate gel and a chubby stick in watermelon. I am soooooo excited to use these goodies and I’m also reunited with an amazing moisturiser! I’m sure I will be reviewing the products I haven’t tried so keep your eyes peeled.

 Jo Malone – Blackberry & Bay Body & Hand Lotion see here

First off anything from Jo Malone is a massive thumbs up from me! When I saw the Jo Malone bag I fell in love. I wanted to try different products from the brand as I have a few colognes and candles so why not try hand lotion. I’m really not a hand cream girl and I REALLY want to get into it and this scent is beautiful that I thought it was a good place to start. I first wanted this when a few months ago I was invited for a complimentary massage at a new store opening. She used this and my oh my I fell in love. I cannot wait to get using this properly.

Huda Beauty – The Brown Edition Liquid Lipsticks see here

So I did recently review the Huda Beauty Liquid Lipsticks here so I was a very happy bunny to receive the mini collection so I can try out some more shades! Brown liquid lipsticks really are my jam so when I opened this from my best friend I was over the moon. The shades in this are: Trendsetter, Flirt, Spice Girl and Vixen. So excited to get using these!

Mark Hill – Healthy Hair Don’t Care Gift Set see here

I have never tried anything from Mark Hill before, maybe because I don’t have a huge interest in hair products but I was so happy to receive this. The gift set is so cute! It comes with a Shampoo, Conditioner, hair mask and argan oil. Anything that claims to make my hair feel good and healthy I am all for. My hair is in need of some TLC so I will be trying these babies out soon and don’t worry I will let you know how I get on.

 Spectrum – White Marbleous 12 Piece Brush Set see here

So I was on the hunt for some new make up brushes I haven’t brought any this year and I knew it was about time. I have been eyeing up Spectrum for the longest time, my issue is that they all look so blooming beautiful it was hard to choose what set to go for. I am so happy with these brushes. I mean who doesn’t love white and gold together. I cannot wait to get using these babies!

Harry Potter – Make Up Brushes see here

With me being a MASSIVE Harry Potter fan, I think my boyfriend only thought it was right to buy me the make up brushes. I actually brought these for my best friend in the summer and I was so tempted to buy myself a set but I decided that I shouldn’t. Now I have my own set! They are pretty weighty brushes and I’m excited to see how they perform. My life is now complete!

MAC – Caitlyn Jenner Lipstick in Authentic Red see here

I LOVE MAC lipsticks, I mean more recently I haven’t brought many but there will always be a place in my heart for them. What I love even more is the collections they do. The packaging is always beautiful. For whatever reason I wasn’t too phased by the Caitlyn Jenner collection as it all seemed so nude and it really isn’t much my thing. I opened this and saw this beautiful red shade – who could say no to this gorgeous colour. I absolutely love it and I love that it is a creamsheen finish. I am sure I will get a lot of use out of this.

Sancturay Spa – Radiance Peel-Off Mask see here

This is a brand I have wanted to try for the longest time but I have never taken the plunge and brought anything from them. I love a good face mask especially at this time of year when my skin needs that extra boost. I will obviously let you know how I get on. Who knows whether this will be the start of a new love affair!?

Lush – Snow Fairy Shower Gel 

Sad news, I can’t link this as it has gone from Lush’s website. This is a limited edition scent that comes round every Christmas. It’s a sweet candy floss smell that I absolutely adore. If anyone ever asks me what I want for Christmas it’s snow fairy. I hate that it is only around for Christmas time. I received two bottles of it this year so I’m sure I will be using is sparingly across the year so I can enjoy it as much as possible. If you have never smelt this, November 2018 go into a Lush store and smell it – you won’t regret it!

Kevin Aucoin – Sculpting Powder see here

I am SO happy to receive this little baby, it was on my list but I thought that if I didn’t receive it then it would definitely be purchased with my Christmas money. I have wanted to up my contour game for the longest time and this just seems like the perfect product. I have heard so many good things about this little baby and I’m so excited to give this a go. As my sister said, the best things come in small packages.

Soap & Glory – Soaper Heroes see here

I think most people receive a Soap & Glory gift set and they never disappoint. It’s the perfect way to try their products out and stock up on the ones you love. Obviously all these products will be used up, most of them I have tried before so I hope I still love them as much as I used to. Also, don’t you just love their names of their sets. Simple yet great!

Ted Baker – Beauty Gift Set 

So I can’t find this anywhere online. This is one of my most favourite gifts as it was from my Grandad. I have never tried Ted Baker make up before and I’m so excited to try it out. The packaging is just amazing! I will be reporting back on these because I can’t wait to see how these babies perform. You even get brushes! I feel like I have been gifted so many brushes this year & I’m so excited to try them out.

That’s all folks. I am a happy bunny that I can now put these products away and get using them! Let me know if you have tried any of these products and your thoughts on them. Also if anyone has tried beauty products from Ted Baker I would love to know your thoughts!
