Here’s a few bits and pieces that I got for Christmas from my fantastic parents and family.
It’s all beauty products (as expected), I hope you all had wonderful holiday celebrations and are totally overindulging on all the good stuff in life.
Firstly I got this Smashbox Full Exposure Palette, this palette is so beautiful, buttery, and pigmented. No pictures fully captured the beauty of both the mattes and the shimmer shadows. It’s also worth mentioning that the brush that comes with the product actually a really great and of great quality.
Next is this NYX glitter glue, I’ve heard fantastic reviews of this product and I’ve found that it really does make a HUGE difference in the life span of glitter staying wherever it’s required and doesn’t leave much fall out.
To go with the glitter glue I got this great multidimensional glitter (Also from NYX) which gives lots of different colour reflects and is super pretty!
The final two eye products are the NYX eye lingerie which is a metallic cream eyeshadow with a lovely rose gold colour. I have worn this every single day since getting it, super easy to apply with a doe-foot applicator and stays ALL day on the lids. Secondly is a single eyeshadow (which I have since de-potted into a Z-palette) in a bright white and a blue-purple reflective undertone, I have been using this as a brow bone and inner corner highlight and also once or twice as a highlight on the cheek bones.
The final NYX product is this individual highlight single which is in a pure matte white. I use this for setting the concealer under my eyes and as a brightener to the face if I’ve got any dark or discoloured patches that need extra setting.
The final makeup product is the Urban Decay De-Slick Makeup setting spray. I’ve had the all nighter setting spray in the past but as an oily skinned person I’ve been recommended the De-Slick many times. I have to say that already I am finding it much better than the All Nighter for my skin type.
The final item I am writing about today is this lovely perfume from Next. It’s a lovely light and floral scent, is perfect for everyday wear, and is super affordable for when I need to repurchase.
I hope you all got all that you wanted and have had some time off from work or studies!
