The polish is inspired by this year's Clothes Show Live ambassador, the gorgeous Daisy Lowe and is a stunning multi-coloured holographic glitter containing 'gorgeous twinkling greys, blues, silver and purples'. I got mine today and I love it! Couldn't wait to swatch it.

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!
