A Little Touch Of Luxury

So when it gets to the christmas shopping season I always like to buy myself a little gift as a treat. This year, I went slightly overboard.

I have been lusting after the NARS Audacious Lipstick in "Charlotte" for so long now it's ridiculous. But that particular shade is still to be welcomed into the UK. I have been checking all the NARS stockists I can think of, but still no prevail. But as I was searching, I found the shade "Vera" which I instantly fell in love with it! It is such a beautiful autumn/winter colour! Plus, being easily pleased by simple things, I was amazed to find out that the lid is magnetic and so instantly clicks into place which is incredibly satisfying!

I then found myself christmas shopping (yes I am that prepared this year!) on the Debenhams website. And by mistake, ended up looking in the beauty section. Big mistake. But say hello to my new Bobbi Brown palette!
I have never bought anything from Bobbi Brown before as the majority of her products are all out of my price range. But every year, I put aside some of my birthday money and buy myself a little Christmasy treat. I was looking at the Mini Eye Palette but then this caught my eye and I was won over! I just knew I would use this one more as I would wear all of the shades! Although both are stunning neutral palettes, this one has a slight edge in my opinion. Plus, the packaging is to die for! As it is a limited edition palette, the packaging has a tortoise shell effect *swoon*

I then ended up doing a tad more christmassy shopping in Boots. So as always, I took advantage of the 3 for 2 offer on all beauty and cosmetics products.
Now I have been using the No7 Natural Blush Tint Powder in Soft Damson for so many years I've lost count - and I have just run out. I am glad I have too. My old blush was looking incredibly worse for wear after it fell out of my drawer and I stood on it and cracked all the packaging. So this pristine one looks stunning. 

I also bought the Maybelline Fit Me Foundation in Ivory. When this was released (last year?) I was sent a sample tester and loved it. I am so surprised it has taken me this long to purchase the full size!

The third item from the offer, was the No7 Skin Illuminator. I have been looking at expanding my collection of highlighters and the only one I seem to own is the Soap and Glory Glow All Out powder. After purchasing the Daniel Sandler Watercolour Liquid Blush, I have been intrigued into buying other liquid/cream products. And this highlighter was a lovely colour! You apply it underneath your foundation in order to achieve a truly natural glow.

And finally is the L'Oreal Colour Riche Lipstick in shade 325. I received this free in a goody bag at a recent student shopping event (which of course I went to) along with a few other things that weren't really my cup of tea. I really like this, I actually had a red one given but I traded with my friend as she has lots of pink lipsticks and I have lots of reds so it made sense to mix up our collection a little by swapping. 
This lipstick is from the Diamantissime range, and has a shimmery finish. It is like nothing I have ever seen before and I will certainly be wearing it quite often!

What are you hoping for at Christmas?

Thanks for reading!
