I'm hoping to get my blogging mojo back in 2014 and start posting regularly again but to ease myself back into it I thought I'd write about some of the beauty bits I got for Christmas.
I wasn't sure what I wanted this year and since I didn't ask for any 'big' presents I wrote my mum a list of some beauty bits that I'd had my eye on for a while. My Mum and Dad ended up getting me a new Armani Luminous Silk foundation as I'd ran out and it's my favourite foundation for going out at night and special occasions. Dior is my favourite high end brand for mascaras, especially the original Diorshow so I wanted to try the Iconic Overcurl as I'd heard good things about it and so far I'm loving it. I also got the Emma Hardie Amazing Face Cleansing Balm which I've wanted for ages but couldn't justify spending that much on a cleanser. The present I was most excited about was the Tom Ford Shade and Illuminate palette, I've always wanted some Tom Ford makeup and thought this would be the perfect addition as I love to contour - watch out for a full review on this ASAP!
From my sister I got some new MAC eyeshadows to add to my palette: Nylon, All That Glitters, Mulch and Carbon and I already had Naked Lunch, Woodwinked and Satin Taupe. I can't wait to fill up this palette with other gorgeous neutral MAC eye shadows, any recommendations?! My friends Samantha and Emma got me some Barry M and Topshop bits. Barry M Gelly's are the best drugstore nail polish and Topshop cream blushers are my favourite - they know me too well!!
Every time I go into House of Fraser I go to the Jo Malone counter and smell all the perfumes so Christmas was the perfect time to ask for one. I finally decided on Nectarine Blossom and Honey which smells amazing, but there are so many amazing scents I can't wait to add more to my collection. I also got the Enrapture Totem Styler which I know a lot of you have. I used it today for the first time and was really impressed and as I hardly ever wear my hair straight, these have definitely replaced my GHD's (which are broken anyway).
As well as beauty bits I also got some new clothes, converse and the usual things like pyjamas and money. Oh, I also treated myself to the Michael Kors Mini Selma bag which I'll do a post on soon. I was well and truly spoiled again this Christmas. If you've done a 'What I Got For Christmas' post please leave the link below as I love reading them!
