WHAT I GOT FOR CHRISTMAS

Of course, my Christmas wish list was going to consist of numerous skin care and beauty products. So, I am going to talk you through all of the skin care and beauty related presents that I got! And a few random bits and pieces…

I am completely obsessed with my Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette and now I have finally got the original NAKED palette! I love the packaging and all of the colours are absolutely beautiful! Urban Decay eye shadows are super pigmented and are really long-lasting. Some eye shadows are the same in both palettes, such as Half Baked, but these are the colours that I wear on a more regular basis, so this is a big plus for me! am so excited to start using this palette, however I will by no means be neglecting my NAKED 2.

I also received some more of my beloved ZOEVA brushes (eeeekk!). The set that I got was the Rose Golden Luxury Set Vol. 2, which are absolutely stunning. I am a huge fan of ZOEVA makeup brushes and they are such good quality! They look so pretty and they also go with the theme of my bedroom – what more could you possibly want?

I have been looking for a charcoal face mask for so long now, and my mum ever so kindly bought me the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask. I am yet to try this but I have such high expectations and will let you know what I think as soon as I have tried it!

Something I have been meaning to try for so long now, is the ever so famous Liz Earle cleanse and polish – and now, I can! I received the Liz Earle Radiant Skin Classics gift set, which includes the cleanse and polish, tonic spritzer and the superskin moisturiser. I am so excited to be adding this to my skin care routine and no doubt repurchasing it!

It is pretty clear that I am a huge fan of Lush, and the Snow Fairy scent. And, for Christmas, I got a whole kilogram of the Snow Fairy shower gel! This is definitely going to keep me going until next Christmas!

Now, just a few things that aren’t beauty and skin care related!

I am a huge Yankee Candle fan and I received pretty much the whole Christmas collection in the votive size! I love the whole Yankee Candle range, especially the Christmas scented ones! I may also be burning these all year round…

Something else I received was a carnival light in the letter M. I love the look of these, they are so rustic and vintage and go perfectly with my bedroom décor!

My boyfriend also surprised me with a Tiffany & Co necklace! I absolutely love this and it is such a thoughtful and sentimental gift.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and I hope you have a Happy New Year! Let me know what you all received for Christmas, and if you have anything you think I might like to try!
