I got absolutely gorgeous presents this year from my family and my other half 🙂 So I thought I would share the beauty presents I got this year
My lovely boyfriend completely spoilt me this year with gifts, particularly on the beauty side of things
Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette
This palette has been on my wishlist for quite some time, but I had heard mixed reviews and was really tooing and frowing about whether to buy it or not. I am so glad I now have this in my collection because it is a gorgeous palette! I personally find the majority of the colours very pigmented – plus I adore the little brush it comes with 🙂
Mac Lipstick in Diva
Oh this lipstick, where to start.. this colour is so unbelievably gorgeous. It was always a colour that I thought ‘how do I not have this in my collection?’ but yet I never actually bought it. I wore this lipstick on Stephen’s Day/ Boxing Day for dinner and it was stunning
Mac Powerpoint Eye Pencil in Engraved
I don’t have any of the Mac eyeliner pencils so this was something new to try 🙂 I have tried it out a few times and I love it! It’s waterproof, so doesn’t move off my extremely watery eyes, which I love.
Mac False Lashes Mascara
Andy has gifted this to me a few times now, which is brilliant because I always have a stock up of it. This is my favourite bottom lash mascara – easy to remove but doesn’t flake off during the day
Mac Eyeshadow single in Sketch
Ah sketch, how I love you! I actually already had this eyeshadow, but had hit pan and was properly needing a back up. This shadow is a ride or die for me
I also got these lovely beauty gifts from my family
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Backstage Bambi
Pretty sure I squealed with excitement when I saw these in the giftbag! When I was in London a few months ago, I was gonna pick some of these up but never did.. totally regretted it since. I have worn this and it the most gorgeous bright pink, it also doesn’t move, which I love 🙂
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Bachelorette
This is a red with a pink undertone, although it pulls more red on me. This was perfect for Christmas and I wore this Christmas Day. It lasted for the entire day, and it wasn’t impossible to get off either! I will definitely be picking up more of these
Seventeen Nail Effects Duo
This contains one nail tinsel and one glitter polish top coat from Seventeen. I am such a nail polish hoarder and I gladly welcome anyone wishing to contribute to my collection 😀 I have yet to try these polishes out but my next nail look will definitely be using at least one of these
Newbridge Silverware Triple Bangle with Birthstone Charm
OK, so I know that this isn’t really a beauty product, but it is just so beautiful that I had to share it. It is rose gold and silver triple bangle with two charms, one my May birthstone and the other an infinity charm, both in rose gold. It looks so beautiful with everything and I have been wearing it loads over Christmas.
I am super happy with all the gifts I received this year, I am so lucky to have such generous people in my life 🙂
Happy 2017 everybody!
