So, as expected a lot of my Christmas Presents were make-up/beauty related, and I LOVE IT (shocker).
Here are some of my FAVES and what I have thought of them.
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas - I enjoyed having a few days off from the laptop - but I'm back happier than ever rambling on about everything & anything, oops. Be sure to comment below with your fave Christmas Beauty Gifts or tag any of your blog posts with them, I love to have a nosy!
Now lets see the Goodies!!
12 Piece Siren Brush set & roll
Let me introduce my new baby's!!!! I am literally obsessed! I can't stop looking at them.
Spectrums 12 piece brush set & case.
Included in the set are our best selling and most popular brushes.
5 large brushes which are:
and 7 smaller brushes which are:
Large Fluffy Shader
Tall Tapered Blender
The set also comes with this gorgeous roller which means I can keep all my brushes together when travelling. Having a case also means it stops them getting thrown about in your makeup bag & prevents stray hairs on your brushes. Plus it helps keeps the insides of my usual make-up bags clean!

URBAN DECAY - NAKED - SMOKY
I have always had a MAJOR obbession with the NAKED pallets by Urban Decay - I have almost everyone (oops).. But I definetly get my moneys worth as I always love every colour. This is now my new fave, the smoky, I love a smoky eye - I would wear one everyday if I could get away with it. This Palette has the perfect balance of nudes - dark smoulder colours, it also has half metalics and half matte pigments. Ahhhh I’m getting excited just talking about - I might have to go do a smoky eye now...... If you’re wanting an all around palette to create either gorgeous brown smoky eyes or for a more evening glam smoky eye - this is the palette for you!!
Get yours here £38.00
Benefit Porefessional has to be about the only product in my makeup bag I can't see myself ever differing from. It's the best primer I have ever tried (& I've tried a few trust me)... It's like it leaves a smooth layer of loveliness over your face, leaving you with the perfect base for your makeup. My mum got me the full size primer which was needed as mine was running low.
My lovely best friend Lucy got me this Benefit Full Glam Ahead set which has a mini version of the Professional perfect for travelling! It then also comes with High Beam highlighter which is great for adding a glowly dewy look to your cheekbones, eyebrow arch. It can also be used under your foundation to add a subtle luminescence to your makeup. It then also has a miniature Bad Gal Lash Mascara - I find this Mascara more natural looking than the Benefit There Real! Mascara (which I do still lovee) it's more of an everyday wear for me. Great for lengthening.

I love anything miniature - especially miniature clinique. These little cuties are perfect for when I'm travelling. The Rinse-off foaming cleanser & the moisture surge are great products for when you're in a but if a rush but still want to fit your skincare in, simply dampen your face, rub all over & wash off - leaves your face feeling squeaky clean then add the Moisture Surge hydrator to moisturise & smooth your skin (you only need a pea sized drop of the Moisture hydrator as it's so beautifully rich & creamy, a little goes a long way.
This blusher is perfect for adding a natural blush to your cheeks - this one has a sparkle to it too which also helps with highlighting. Unfortunately I can't find the exact blusher anywhere - however you can browse Clinique's gorgeous brush range here.

Bondi Sands everyday tan is my go-to tan for day to day use, my boyfriend knows this well so added it as a little stocking filler. It has not long been available in the UK as its an Australian Tan (I'm sure the name gives that away), but Superdrug have began to stock it (Can I get a WHOOP WHOOP). I am not as keen on the other tans available from the Range but the everyday tanning milk is AMAZING. It gives the most beautiful natural but still dark bronzed colour to you & never comes out streaky. My other favourite thing about it is that It just naturally fades away - so no fights in the shower with the exfoliating mitt.
PS its only £11.99

Perfect Eyes Duo - Highlighter Pencil
This highlighter is specifically designed for your eyes. I personally use the lighter colour under my eyebrow arch to really define my eyebrows, I then use the golden shimmery colour in the corners of my eye to make them stand out & also on my eyelids if I want to add a bit of extra sparkle!

shade - 09 Light Beige
I have a few of this stick lip glosses & they literally look like a lipstick consistency but when applied to lips they are full gloss & shiny! Nudes are my faves & this shade is beautiful. They're great for if you have dry lips as they feel very moisturising. Long-lasting & great coverage. Thumbs up from me!
