The Sweet Smell Of Christmas ðŸŽ„

I don’t know about you but one of my favourite things about Autumn is that’s when all the new beauty Christmas collections are revealed.

I mean it’s still 11 weeks until Christmas but it’s never to early to start getting excited is it?

Saying that these minis from Too Faced are the first thing I have picked up from any of the holiday collections, I just couldn’t resist!

These four stunning minis are all scented and smell like some of my Christmas favourites. They are all the famous melted matte formula which I personally love, it dries down totally matte but it is very comfortable and not drying at all.

I thought I would show you the shade on the applicators as it can be deceiving in the tubes. Also the shade names are all listed below too.

From left to right: Hot Buttered Rum, Sugar Cookie, Pumpkin Spice, Cinnamon Bear.

I think my favourite shade has to be Sugar Cookie, it’s a beautiful pinkish Nude which is one of my favourite shades in any lipsticks.

There are definitely a few other items from the Too Faced Christmas collection I want to pick up such as the Gingerbread Spice eyeshadow palette, that has some gorgeous warm tones and shimmers perfect for this time of year!

Will you be picking up any of the Too Faced Christmas collection?

Charlotte Tilbury – Pillow Talk collection – A Review:

43DC5CA3-DA2B-4731-90A7-904293CB0AA9.jpeg
I can honestly say when I heard this collection was going to be released I was 100% picking it up as soon as it was released, even if it meant toast until payday!

I am a huge fan of Charlotte Tilbury products, not only for the beautiful packaging but the amazing quality of the products, the Pillow Talk collection DID NOT DISAPPOINT!

So for anyone who hasn’t seen this collection, I don’t know where you have been (joking), but it is made up of 4 products.

They are:

  • Matte Revolution Lipstick
  • Lip Cheat
  • Cheek to Chic (New)
  • Luxury Eyeshadow Palette (New)

I already had the two lip products but needed to pick up the two new releases, I was actually lucky enough to find a link to order them early…… Yes that’s how excited I was!

So moving forward to the day they arrived…. I was at work at the time so couldn’t play with them straight away but they were even more gorgeous in person!

The luxury eyeshadow palette has 4 shades, 2 which are mattes and 2 shimmers. They all work amazingly together to create a beautiful natural eye look, absolutely perfect for a wedding look! They are highly pigmented and blend seamlessly so even if you aren’t a professional you wouldn’t have any issues!

Lastly moving onto the Cheek to Chic blush, it is the usual two toned blush which I love however this one has a gorgeous champagne colour in the middle which adds the most beautiful sheen to your skin when applied. I’d even wear this on its own if I was having a minimal makeup day as it would leave a radiant glow!

My over all thoughts…. is the collection worth buying? 1000% YES!!!!

It is only available online though so you will need to order it from the Charlotte Tilbury website but their delivery times are great!

Hope you’ve enjoyed my thoughts on this highly covered release!

September Wish list

Hey All, 👋🏼

So I recently asked on my Instagram stories if my next blog post should be a wish list for September and that got the most votes!

I am FOREVER buying new skincare and make up and the products below are ones I have my eye on this month.

I haven’t included the Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk collection as I was lucky enough to be able to order that early and it’s on its way to me! It’s a seriously stunning collection!

So here goes, (pray for my bank balance this month):

Nars – Climax Mascara – £21:

This looked amazing when watching the blogs from the press trip, I much prefer a bigger fluffy brush for my lashes.

You can sign up to the waitlist on Cult Beauty using the below:

Benefit – Brow Contour Pro – £28.50:

This brings back serious childhood memories I absolutely loved the pens with changeable colours so this has gripped me! You get two brow shades and two highlight / conceal shades so it’s a full brow kit in one handy easy to use place.

All shades are blend able and last up to 24 hours. The only reservation I have is how long it would actually last as it is a fair bit more expensive than the other brow products.

You can purchase this using the link below:

Urban Decay – Born to run palette – £39.50:

I mean who wouldn’t want this palette, it has such a stunning range of shades and would be a great travelling palette as you could create so many looks!

I love the formula of UD shadows too, I find they are really easy to work with!

I will be adding other bits as and when they become available and catch my eye!

What are you going to get your hands on this month?
