I’m currently catching up on Youtube vids with a cup of tea and a bacon sandwich, absolutely perfect! I’m always lucky come Christmas as my family, friends and boyfriend are very generous. I thought I would share some of my Christmas gifts as no doubt they will be getting full mentions on here throughout January, this is basically a sneak peek of the reviews to come!
The Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette is right out of my comfort zone, I’m a warm toned. bronzed eye makeup kinda gal so I am really excited to start experimenting with this. The colours are gorgeous and I know I can trust the quality of Urban Decay eyeshadows. Plus, I think UD are the only brand to actually give you a decent eyeshadow brush!? This one looks pretty promising. My nails have been awful for a while now as they are so thin and break easily, I was happy to open the OPI Nail Envy, I’ve heard so many good things about it so fingers crossed it works for me.
Christmas isn’t quite Christmas without a little bit of Lush, it is like a roast dinner without the stuffing, it just isn’t allowed. The bubble bar Holly Golightly (all sold out now, sorry!) smells spicy, does anyone remember those Atomic Fireblast sweets? (give it a google I bet you do) it smells exactly like them! The bath goes green and the cinnamon scent is so festive, I’ll be picking this up next year to have again. Snow Fairy is a classic, a little too sweet in the mornings for me but nice in the evening. Something new I’ve never tried is the Nyx Soft Matte Lip Creme’s this one is in “Prague”, this is really cute as I actually went to Prague in November, so quite a thoughtful gift. The colour is like nothing else I own, it is a berry toned pink with a little purple in there too, really unique to other berry lip colours I’ve seen. I’m loving the formulation of this and will be picking up more shades in the new year for £5.50 you can’t go wrong!
Soap and Glory Hand Food saves me, I love this mini from one of their sets I received. It really keeps my hands nourished without feeling greasy. Everyone needs one in their handbag, it makes the perfect stocking filler!
I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, was there anything beauty related that you received this year?
