What I Got For Christmas

Christmas is all about doing things last minute, I mean after all the time we have running up to it. We never get it all done well in advanced. So here’s a last minute post about what I got for Christmas.

These type of posts have had such a mixed amount of opinions by others, but I absolutely love reading what people receive. So here’s what I got for all you nosy like people like myself..

River Island Red Fashion Bag | This is such a gorgeous bag right? I cannot wait to show it off to the world. The detailing to the embroidery, to the lion gold head as the main statement to the bag. You have two sections inside, and it’s a pretty handy size. (I am no fashion blogger. Lol.)

Lush Snow Fairy Gift Set | This comes with Magic Wand reusable bubble bar ~ Snow fairy jelly bomb.

Lush Christmas Candy Box | This comes with ~ Luxury lush pud bath bomb ~ Candy mountain bubble bar ~ Rock star soap.

Styl Pro Limited Make Up Brush Cleaner | This is one of the presents that I’m most excited to use and try out. So this little beauty cleans and dries your brushes within minutes, actually seconds and you can use them straight away. This is a total must have for me as it takes me up to an hour to clean my brushes and beauty blenders, but with my brushes not taking minutes to do altogether – I’m going to have the cleanest brushes of them all with this. You can pick this up in your local boots for £49.99 but I know there are cheaper ones in the market, but I will be doing a full review on this very soon.

Lush Merry Christmas Set | This comes with ~ Shoot for the stars bath bomb ~ Christmas sweater bath bomb ~ Thundersnow bath bomb ~ Golden Wonder bath bomb.

Lee Stafford Chopstick Curler | This is one of the first gifts I used, I used it on Christmas Day for a gorgeous bouncy look. It didn’t take long for the curler to heat up which is really good, and I also found that it curled each section of hair pretty quickly. You didn’t have to hold it for too long. I’ve even slept over night since curling my hair and it’s still pretty curly considering. I think they’re amazing for the money, for only £19.99 they can be yours.

Charlotte Tilbury Matte Liquid Lipstick | This is a gorgeous nourishing orange/red shade. It dries as gorgeous matte lip, and I’m super excited to try a brighter shade.

Stila Liquid Eye Shadow – Diamond Dust | This is absolutely gorgeous. Its a shimmery silver, that’s highly pigmented. I couldn’t recommend these enough, totally obsessed.

This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray | Another product I used on the big day, Christmas. After spending Christmas Eve with a few too many drinks, and then for a full day of fun and games with the family – this pillow spray was a must. It smells so luxury, and really gets you in the right mind set to lay down and totally conk out. It’s infused with lavender, vetivert and wild camomile to sooth your mind and body. You just spray a thin amount onto your pillows and duvet cover. Your mind becomes in the right frame to have a good night sleep. Cannot wait to keep using this over the time ahead.

Stila Liquid Eye For Elegance Set | These have been pretty popular over the last couple of months, and that includes a favourite of mine. They’re super pigmented and amazingly gorgeous, they stay in put all day and they’re perfect to finish off any gorgeous smokey eye or to use alone. You get six shades : Kitten ~ shimmer nude pink. Grace ~ a shimmer rose gold. Twig ~ a warm red bronze. Peachy sheen ~ pearl with gold and silver shimmer. Smoldering Satin ~ deep tan with silver glitter. Next to Notte ~ deep red with pink glitter.

Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel | This was a must have, as well was the snow fairy gift set. I love this scent, and it’s perfect for the Christmas period. It’s a total must have.

Charlotte Tilbury Lipstick – Shanghai Nights | A gorgeous deep red perfect for Christmas time. CT lipsticks are super pigmented and dry matte. The perfect on the go lipstick.

Dose Of Colors Matte Lipstick – Campfire | I’ve been dying to try one of these lipsticks, and I’m so happy to have my hands on one! This is a gorgeous burnt brown/red shade and I think it would be perfect for a natural bronzed make up look.

Mario Badescu Seaweed Night Cream | A good thing – it doesn’t smell of seaweed. It smells very clean and fresh instead. You apply in the evening and are suppose to wake up with radiant, smooth, hydrated complexion come morning.

Jouer Liquid Crème – Tawny Rose | Another lipstick I’ve been dying to get my hands on and this is the perfect dark nude lip for an everyday lipstick. This is a very similar shade to the Huda Beauty liquid lipstick in the shade Venus. I can see this becoming a favourite just like Venus is.

That’s everything! What did you get?!

    You got some lovely things, I can’t wait to see how you got on with the Stylepro, my eldest is a MUA & has to clean hundreds of brushes daily so this could be a gamechanger if it’s good. I love your bag, I got a RI bag too 🙂 they do the nicest bags. Gorgeous gifts xxx
