Well hello to you my reader chums! I hope everybody had a lovely Christmas in whichever way you celebrate. This year, I received an array of beautiful presents from family and friends, so wanted to share a few of my favourite beauty items. I'm incredibly grateful and thrilled with all my presents, I feel truly spoilt by my loved ones. I can't believe this year has nearly come to an end and 2017 is looming.
Let's take a look at all the products:
Charlotte Tilbury 'Glastonberry' lipstick - If you've been following me for a while, then you'd know I have a massive obsession with berry/burgundy toned lipsticks especially in the cooler months. One I've always wanted to get my hands on is the much hyped 'Glastonberry' by Charlotte Tilbury. Lucky to say, I finally did and couldn't wait to give it a go. The shade is the perfect burgundy colour, it glides on like a dream and is comfortable to wear despite the matte finish. It's my first Charlotte Tilbury product and I can't wait to try out more - the rose gold packaging is beautiful.
Nars 'Cruella' lipstick - Another lipstick was a rich coloured red in the shade 'Cruella by Nars. I saw Tanya Burr mention this in many videos a while back and had my eye on it for a while so was ecstatic when I received it. Like the previous lipstick, it was my first chance of testing out any Nars product. The colour is a slightly dark, intense red with a matte finish. The application glides on easy with the pencil design and its pigmentation is faultless.
Kiko Cosmetics Enigma lipstick in '03' - The third lipstick I received was from one of my favourite brands, Kiko. All the products I've used previously are made of such good quality and give top notch results. This colour is on the berry tree of lipsticks with a slightly more mauve tone and satin finish. The packaging is very sleek and even has a magnetised black tube!
Jack Wills lipstick - The last lipstick, I got in a Jack Wills gift set with a gingham style coin purse. The shade is a very toned down, peach and baby pink colour with a sheen over the top making it an ideal lipstick for everyday use.
Urban Decay All Nighter setting spray - I've seen the Urban Decay All Nighter spray hyped across everything social media platform so was beyond excited when I found it under the tree! Urban Decay is my all time favourite brand and I'm looking forward to see if this product lives up to all the raving reviews.
Zoella Beauty Gingerbread set - At Christmas time, all my favourite scents come out including everything ginger which the Zoella Beauty Christmas range was based around this year. The set I received contained a gingerbread body cream and mist. I'm going to be smelling like a bakery all year round now!
Soap and Glory gift set - Soap and Glory are my all time favourite for shower products. This beauty set provides the famous 'Hand food' cream, 'Clean on me' shower gel, a scrub and wash mit. As they're all travel sized products, it'll be perfect for upcoming adventures.
Snowmen bath fizzers - These were the cutest stocking filler from my Nan. I'm looking forward to seeing them fizz away in my bath!
Cupcake bath bombs - In the stripy red box are three different cupcake style bath bombs, all with different intricate detailing. There's two flower ones and another with swirly icing plus sprinkles on the top. I think they're so unique and smell heavenly, I'm looking forward to the lingering scent they leave in the bath.
Dragons Egg - My favourite bath bomb of all time, Dragon's Egg holds the most incredible, long-lasting citrus based scent. It explodes, leaving a bath full of orange, yellow and gold glitter water - what more could you want?
The Luxury Lush pud - This bath bomb is one of the best Christmas ones they do every year! It fills the water with an array of multi colours and lingering musky/citrus scent.
The Magic of Christmas bubble bar - I've wanted to give this bubble bar a try for a while but never picked it up. The stick is packed with all my favourite Christmas warm scents including cinnamon. The bubble bar idea is to swirl it under warm water, creating a heap of bubbles and using the star stick multiple times over.
Perfume - Last but not least is the Juicy Couture perfume. I'm not the best at describing perfume scents, however it has a very sweet and rich smell to it but isn't too overwhelming. I reckon it'll suit a variety of tastes, as it has that muskiness to it also. If you ever has One Directions 'Moments' perfume, these two are really similar.
I hope you enjoyed my 2016 Christmas beauty haul! Which is your favourite present you received?
