Thank you Santa

So I thought as I received some makeup for Christmas that I would share with you what I got, including what I do and don’t like so here goes!

First of all I got one of those makeup boxes from Benefit which includes a bronzer, mascara, Beam highlight and Gimme Brow.

They’re real Mascara (£19.50)okay so .. I like to put it on, but I tell you .. It is a right biatch to get off .. I mean someone pass me a damn shovel! I like the brush and the way it looks but I don’t know if I would buy it again purely for the fact it’s so hard to get off, maybe if I used a really oily makeup remover it would work, but I would rather be without the hassle, thanks Benefit but no thanks.
The Hoola Benefit Bronzer (£23.50) I love this and I use this bronzer already so I cannot go wrong with another one, the colour is a nice light bronze, it’s not too heavy so it is great for every day wear, I would recommend this.
The High Beam (£19.50) is lovely too if you are into the liquid highlight, I tend to tab it and depending on how fleeky I’m feeling, I may even go in and add a little ABH powder highlight on top .. Again depends how fleeky I am that day.
Gimme Brow in Medium/Deep (£18.50) I lurrrrrvvvvvv, no really it is actually surprisingly really good, I wasn’t sure how I’d get on with the little brush but I actually really like it, I use it along side my Mac brow pencil which works well for me!
Boujouir Healthy mix foundation (£9.99) was one of the other things I bought with some chirstmas money, since everyone raves on about it I thought I’d give it a go, I haven’t really decided how I feel about this one, I’m not sure if it’s because I need a slightly lighter shade or I feel like to get a decent cover I have to apply quiet a lot .. I don’t know, I will do a post on different foundations and let you know!IMG_0267
Nars creamy concealer in Custard (£22) is actually damn good, I struggle to get on with concealers, I just feel like I always need something extra, and I now understand why everyone raves about, i like to use it as a bit of a highlight on my face, all hail Nars .. Makeup gods you did me good, big up to the big man up there!
Urban Decay Vice Palette (£38) thanks to my amaze boyfriend who loves to make me happy and buy me nearly every palette I could possibly want from Urban Decay .. thank you honey. I love this palette so much, the colours are gorgeous and so so pigmented, I am definitely  a little obsessed, I would recommend anyone who has had their eye on it to just take the plunge and buy it, I just feel like there is a shade for every occasion, and the glittery shadows are just to die for! Buy it!


Fine Glitter Dust 22 Silver (£4.59) by Barry M, if you’re feeling extra sparkly then go and get yourself one of these, it made me feel so glam on a night out, just gave me that extra UMPFF that I know I deserve!! I put my eyeshadow on and put this on top towards the outer part of my eyes, and word of advice, but a little eyelash glue on first and then pack it on after, I can assure you it stays on all night .. even the next day actually, I was walking around looking like a 9 year old child at a disco with nothing on but my glittery eyes LOL! Word of advice, make sure you have enough makeup wipes to take it off!IMG_0306

Right so that is about it for Christmas makeup, I hope you enjoyed this post and you all got what you wanted for Christmas, sorry it is a little late and if you have any questions don’t be afraid to hit me up girl!
