Dior Addict - ULTRA GLOSS 662 Flash

Santa was so good to me this year, but I think one of my favourite lip products he left me under my tree is this Dior Addict Ultra Gloss lip gloss. As far as high end make up products go, Dior is one of my favourites, I have a few Dior lip glosses and they are so luxury!
I absolutely love this product not only for is amazing colour and staying power, but also because of the gorgeous packaging, it's such a lovely design and very flashy, take this out of your handbag and everyone will know the brand.
Flash 662 is a lovely shimmer pink colour, perfect over lipstick or on it's own in the summer. It's a really versatile colour that I just lovely! As it was gift I'm not sure on price but most Dior glosses are over £20. Pricey I know but in my opinion, worth it.

Boxing day sales

Every year, my sister and I hit the sales on boxing day, we get up early and wait for them to open. This year was a little disappointing, not a lot caught my eye but I did pick up a few things. River island had the best clothing sale, I got a Blue vest top and black 'leather look' pencil skirt for £17. Boots had their traditional half price on gifts sale, I grabbed some official 17 lip crayons. And primark had a few bits and bobs, gorgeous pom pom slippers, knickers and tights all only £1! What did you get?

Daisy Marc Jacobs - Eau So Fresh

Before I properly blog about what Santa got me and all my festive happenimgs, I want to show you this absolute steal I got in the boxing day sales, from the Perfume Shop. 75ml Daisy gift set for an amazing £24.50!!!! I can't even believe how cheap that is, its normally around £50 for a gift set like this. it's not a fragrance I would wear now but it will keep until the spring. More sale and Christmas posts to come!

OPI - Top coat and Base coat.

I always use a base and top coat when painting my nails, I really notice the different when I don't. So when I was in my local salon the other day, I noticed they had this little gift sets for sale... I was shocked when she told me they were priced at.... Are you ready for this?! £11!!!!
Obviously I got a set, okay so the bag is a little crappy but it's what's inside that counts... Two full sized OPI products for only £11. Everyone needs a good base and top coat, and I totally recommend these!

Sleep-In Rollers. Fringe Roller

I have had my sleep in rollers for a while now, and I still love them as much as I did when I first got them. I'm a huge fan of the company and think they have massively grown - the girls are so lovely and deserve everything they have achieved!
When I heard about the specially designed fringe roller I knew I wanted to give it ago, it's super cheap at only £5! The perfect stocking filler. I got mine for my birthday and love it. It's a super chunky roller that's longer than normal rollers, this means you can get your whole fringe rolled on it without bits sticking out the end.
It give you a lovely bounce which I struggle to get with normal rollers. It comes in the iconic Sleep-In Rollers bag so you can put it away without half of your make-up draw getting stuck to it!
Overall a great product, I can't wait to see the girls at the clothes show, I want to get my hands on the NEW hair spray.

No7 glamour lipsticks - Poppy King

I don't think I have ever used a No7 lipstick before? Which is why I was happy to receive a few as birthday treats. I was given two gorgeous colours, number 2 - power and number three - glamour.
Number 2 (the bottom swatch) is a gorgeous red/pink colour, and number 3 is more of a softer pink. Both really lovely to wear and versatile, they are very moisturising and long lasting. I also really enjoy the packaging and the over all little capsule the lipstick is held in. Really lovely products, I am looking forward to trying some more! http://www.boots.com/en/No7-Poppy-King-Lipstick_1207216/

YSL - Golden Gloss, Golden Peach

I was truly spoilt recently on a shopping trip away with the Mr and this is one of the products he got me...
The gorgeous Golden Gloss by YSL, one of my favourite luxury make up brands. Also, it smells amazing, actually a little like peach!
I chose this stunning peach/nude colour with a beautiful sparkle. It was very pricey, £23 if I remember correctly, I'm totally in love with this product and can't wait to wear it out for my birthday :)

Ciate Advent Calendar

Selfridges says... 'Every girl’s diary can now be filled with a daily dose of delectable mini nail treats from Ciaté, as behind each door lies a very colourful surprise. Gorgeously packaged with 17 of Ciaté's bestselling mini Paint Pots, four mini Caviar blends, and three extremely special exclusive Paint Pot glitter shades you’ll not find anywhere else, ever.'

I was luckily enough to get my hands on one of these, I'm so excited to open the little doors, pictures to follow from December 1st.

Laura Mercier - Peacock eye colour

This is the gorgeous Laura Mercier eye colour in the stunning Peakcock shade. This isn't a shade I normally go for but once I saw how pigmented it was I was sold! It's a beautiful bluey greeny colour with lots of lovely undertones.
Application is perfect like all Laura Mercier products. Im not sure of the price of this product as it was a gift, but it certainly would be worth every penny!

Clinique lid Smoothie - Sassy-fras

After using the Maybelline 24hour Color tattoo I have been on a mission to try out new creamy eye shadows.
I recently picked up the Clinique lid smoothie in Sassy-fras which is a cream liquid eye colour. I chose this colour because its beautifully pigmented and a great everyday colour.
Application is easy as the top of the tube is shaped so you can sweep across your eye lid, a little bit of help with a cotton bud and your set, ready to go.
Absolutely love this colour and more colours are on my Christmas list. They are priced at £17 which I know is pricey but for a luxury product that's really beautiful, I don't mind spending the extra pennies!

Clinique even better foundation

Clinique is a staple in my makeup bag, I am never disappointed and my skin absolutely loves the products I apply. It's fair to say I got a little obsessed with Chubby sticks, and still am!
I normally always go for the super balanced foundation from Clinique, but I had heard so many great things about the even better foundation, I thought I would give it a go.
I'm really pleased with the results, to be honest it's very similar to the Super balanced foundation, but slightly less cakey and I would say even better coverage, I love a good coverage foundation.
I have quite a fair skin tone, so was matched with 03 ivory, absolutely perfect shade!
The foundation is priced at £23 and will last me a good 6months, you really get your money's worth with all Clinique products. Really nothing I can fault about this product...
Please let me know if you have used this product and what you thought.

Glamour magazine and Nails Inc

I'm such a massive fan of Nails Inc, this is nothing new, and I always get so excited when magazines have the varnishes as a free gift. So you can imagine my delight when I spotted the recent copy of Glamour with free Nails Inc. I quickly grabbed two copies with two different shade.
I picked up Motcomb Street which is a dark, (I think blacky blue colour) I haven't tried this one yet but I know I'm going to love it! I also go St James which is a gorgeous red and is actually on my toes right now - love them. I also love the little box they come in, it's so cute with the little bow!
I'm trying to get hold of the gold colour, let me know if any of you are luckily enough to have it already.

Revlon - Just Bitten Kissable

I'm behind with the time - I know... But I just wanted to share with you my love for the-not-so-new Revlon Just bitten kissable balm stain.
I picked up mine a few weeks ago and I love it, I got the 040 Rendezvous which is a gorgeous choral orangy colour. It reminds me a little bit of a chubby stick but a lot more pigmented.
I love the colour and I love the taste, its quite a minty sensation on your lips. I will be buying a lot more of these - the best thing is its only about £6! Cant go wrong, perfect for everyday wear!

ESPA Essential Moisturising Balm

I have recently discovered the ESPA brand and have been really impressed with their results.
I have already tried the cleansing milk and think its fab, but I got my hands on the moisturising balm.
This is a gorgeous balm thats actually quite runny, it's sort of a gel texture. It has a really lovely citrus scent to it which I love! It leaves my skin really soft and holds the moisture for ages, sometimes I find after a while my skin is dry again. My skin absolutely loves this!
I would recommend this If you get the chance, ESPA have some lovely Christmas gift sets at the moment too. Let me know I'd you have tried any ESPA products.
