I hope you have all had a fun, festive Christmas this year and enjoyed spending time with your loved ones, being spoilt and eating lots of delicious food! Christmas for me, was very much beauty based and I was lucky enough to receive some beautiful gifts.
I would just like to say that I am not doing this post to 'show off' or 'brag', I am so grateful for all of my presents and am very lucky to be surrounded by such generous people and wanted to share them with you, as i like to read these kind of posts myself and helpfully can recommend some products to you!
After that long intro... here are the beauty items I got for Christmas this year (2014)
Makeup... Bobbi Brown Warm Glow Eye Palette, Wild About Beauty Powder Shadow (06 Alana), Benefit World Famous Neutrals Eye Kit, Anthropologie Lipstick (Posy), NARS Matte Lip Pencil (Bahama) and Lipstick Queen China Town Kit (Pink Bluff, Catalina &, Chase) Being a beauty addict, I was bound to get some new makeup but I wasn't expecting to receive so many new products. These were gifts from my family, friends and boyfriend- thank you!
Skincare, Hair & Body... Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser (Sweet Orange & Mint), Liz Earle Hot Cloth Cleanser Mini, Clarins Hydra Quench Cream Mask, Vichy Idéalia Life Serum, Vichy One Step Cleanser, Skyn Hydra Cool Firming Eye Gels, Philip Kingsley Moisture Balancing Shampoo and Conditioner, Xen Tan Gold Gel : In the skincare category I received some new products that I haven't tried before and some that I have used and loved, such as the Liz Earle Hot cloth cleanser. All of the other products I have read raving reviews about so am looking forward to trying them.
Perfume... Marc Jacbos Daisy Dream : I love receiving perfume gifts as it can be quite expensive to buy myself so I was very pleased to be given this. I have always loved Marc Jacobs scents and recently ran out of Daisy Eau so Fresh, so it was perfect timing for Daisy Dream!
