Christmas Gifts

Bare Minerals – The Affair To Remember

I was a very lucky girl this Christmas and got some really lovely gifts! I absolutely love the make-up from Bare Minerals and it’s definitely my go-to these days, so this Eye Shadow set from my Grandparents was an amazing present. The selection of colours here are so pretty with a lovely mix of shades that are suitable for both day and evening. ‘Curtsy’, the white shade, is one of my favourites and is great for livening up the eye and ‘Debuntane’, the pinky shade looks amazing – these colours are really easy to blend and use in combinations, plus the texture is very soft on the skin, so I really can’t wait to test out the rest of them. The brush is brilliant too and ensures you cover all necessary areas! I can’t recommend Bare Minerals make-up enough if you haven’t already tried it, it’s so gentle on the skin – and these eye shadow colours are just gorgeous. 

Revlon – Top Speed

If you read my blog then you’ll know my obsession with Revlon nail varnish! Along with Essie, it’s definitely my favourite brand, so this was a lovely gift set from my Mum featuring four of the Top Speed shades. The red I wore on Christmas Day through to Boxing Day because it’s such a festive colour and has a lovely sheen to it, plus it stays on really well. Today I’m wearing the navy blue, ‘Royal’ shade which is a lovely deep navy and looks rather dramatic on the nails – I love it! I think the beauty of Revlon is how long the colour lasts and the pretty shine to the polish, plus this really is ‘top speed’ and dries very quickly – perfect someone as quick-fix as me who likes to pain and go! I’m looking forward to trying the other two shades and it’s great to have some more shades to add to my little Revlon family. I’ll pop some reviews of my other bits up on here over the next few days, which include my new Issey Miyake perfume and Real Techniques Brush Set 🙂
