christmas gifts, christmas haul, what I got for christmas 2017

Another year has gone and this is my last blog post of 2017! I have seen alot of negativity on What I Got For Christmas posts over on Twitter. Personally I really enjoy reading them and love seeing what others got, mainly because it makes me go and buy stuff! People say it is bragging but I don't think it is, many people enjoy reading them and why shouldn't we be happy with what we got? I have put together some of my favourite picks of what I received and I have done a try on of some of the items I got.

I recently went to London to go to the Winter Wonderland there but of course I had to do some shopping too. I was super excited as the new Too Faced store opened up on Carnaby Street and they stock the peaches and cream collection which I have been wanting to get my hands on since it was released. I did go to London planning on not buying myself anything but oops here we are!

It is filled with all the magical Christmas lights along with lots of fun activities. We only booked to go a couple of months ago and just went for the weekend. I am so happy I have finally been.

I wasn't going to do it, I kept telling myself I didn't need them. Well it happened, I purchased two of the Gigi Hadid Maybelline Lipsticks. If I am being honest nothing else in the range interested me, I thought the palettes looked very immature but I am all about nude lipsticks so of course I had to right? Off in my basket they went and they soon arrived on my doorstep but were they worth it?

Too Faced has become a brand I am obsessed with. This year I have tried alot more products from them and fallen in love with everything. No matter what the product is, the packaging is always stunning and every little detail is gorgeous. They definitely win the award for prettiest packaging especially with the Love Lights Highlighters. I decided to finally pick up the Born This Way Powder after already being a fan of the foundation and concealer, so why not complete the set.

Winter Skincare

During Winter my skin always needs a little extra TLC. This year I am so happy with the products I have found, some are old favourites but most are new products that are working wonders for my skin in the colder months. My skin has become more on the combination side which has been hard to adjust to as usually it is just extremely oily.

Sephora Winter Flush Blush Palette

If you haven't already seen I recently did a Sephora Haul on my blog, catch up with the full post here. I ordered from Sephora a few months ago now and one of the items I picked up was the Sephora Winter Flush Palette. As soon as I saw it on the website I knew I needed it. I wear blusher every time I wear makeup and I tend to love a mixture of shades from pinks, peaches, mauve's and more so this palette really stood out to me.

Winter Makeup Picks

Winter makeup has to be my favourite. I love all the warmer darker tones but also with a pop of colour. It was so easy for me to pick out my favourite Winter picks. I've got you covered from base to eyes to a poppin highlight. I do enjoy Summer makeup but Winter takes it for me, I feel I can be more creative. 

full coverage foundations

All About That Base...


I always recommend this foundation it is one of my go to bases. It is fuller coverage and leaves your skin looking flawless. I have oily-combination skin and this works well for both. It keeps me shine free for the longest time, it doesn't break up or look cakey. The shade range is huge!


This foundation is probably my favourite find this year. I am on my third bottle and also just purchased two more as backups! Now for someone that owns over 30 foundations, this shows just how much I am obsessed with this one. It just looks flawless and I can find my perfect shade in this. It is a medium coverage. They have expanded the shade range so there are now 10 shades available online. 


This is one gorgeous powder. You can use it as a powder on top of a foundation or use it as a foundation. I use it both ways and I find it really gives a flawless finish whilst being lightweight. 

foiled eyeshadows

Three eyeshadows I have fallen in love with this year are these three stunning shades. 

Makeup Geek Grandstand - is a gorgeous foiled bronze shadow

Makeup Geek Jester - is such a unique green foiled shade I adore. 

ColourPop Stay Golden - This shade is so pretty. A matte deep pinky red.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette


Now we all know the mixed reviews this palette has had but for me it is incredible. The pigmentation is insane, the colours are 100% Autumn and Winter Shades. You can see swatches of all shades in my full review here.

high end highlighters

Highlighters & Blushers


I have become obsessed with this highlighter. With having pale/fair skin I can never find a gold toned highlighter that works as most show up too dark on me. This one is perfect, it is a pale gold that has an intense glow. If you love a good intense glow this is for you! It also comes in other shades. If you want to see how this looks on then check out my full review here which includes face swatches.

Too Faced Prismatic Highlighter "Ray of Light" | £25.00 | Link


This highlighter I didn't expect to love as much as I do. It is a unique rose gold shade that looks stunning on. I don't own another highlighter like this. It is rose gold but has specks of gold in it. It works perfectly on pale,fair or medium skin tones. It isn't the most intense glow but it is definitely buildable. You can see face swatches in my full review here.

too faced ray of light swatch, topshop afterglow swatch


One of my go to blushers. It is the perfect Winter blush. Again it works on pale, fair or medium skin tones. The shade can be a very sheer colour or built up. I love how it looks.


This is one of my holy grail products. It can be used as a blush or as a contour shade. I use it both ways. If I use it as a blush I just use a light hand and it adds a little warmth to your skin. It isn't too warm toned or too cool toned. 


NYX Mauve Me Swatch, MAC Harmony swatch

winter lipsticks

Lipsticks - Something For Everyone


This is probably hands down my favourite lipstick formula. It is extremely creamy but dries matte but not your usually drying kind of matte. I find 90% of matte lipsticks drying but these aren't. The best part is this formula lasts over 6 hours before re applying. I can eat and drink and it will still be there. This shade is a gorgeous mauve.


How stunning is the packaging of this lipstick! As soon as I saw these on Instagram I knew I wanted one and the shade Toast stood out to me. I love my nude shades as this is a warm toned nude. It has a brown undertone to it. The formula is creamy but long lasting.


One of my favourite liquid lipstick formulas. There aren't many liquid lipstick formulas I like but this one is extremely comfortable to wear. This shade is a deeper muted pink. Perfect for this time of year.


A deep chocolate brown that steals my heart. I adore this shade. The formula is a matte and this lasts for hours! I don't find it drying at all.

It is no secret how much of a fan I am of Vichy from their skincare to the makeup. Vichy is a brand that releases product after product but always has that high end quality.They recently launched the Covermatte Compact Powder Foundation which is something I have been waiting for them to release. Vichy makeup is aimed at the fuller coverage side as they aim products to people who suffer with acne, blemishes and un even skin tone.

My skincare routine is changing every few months at the moment, my skin keeps changing and it is hard to find products that work. I'm 25 so not classed as a teen but the Nip and Fab Teen Skin range caught my eye. My skin is breakout prone on my chin, I don't tend to get breakouts anywhere else. It is extremely oily on/around my nose and chin then the rest of my skin is usually normal or it can be combination. The range is targeted at blemish and breakout prone skin which is exactly what I have.

Contouring has become part of my daily makeup routine. Whether I go for a subtle look or I define my cheekbones until they won't go anymore, I always make sure to contour in some way. I have recently become obsessed with cream contouring as it is so quick and easy and it blends into your makeup much more effortlessly. I adore the original Benefit Hoola Bronzer, the colour is perfect and it blends really well. When I saw Benefit had released a cream contour version I knew I needed it in my life.

I told myself I didn't want it and then told myself I don't have any shades like this and made myself want it again. I was going to wait until my first wage from my job but my partner bought me it early as a kind of well done on getting the job present. Usually when I buy palettes they look similar to ones I already have but not this one. The Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture Palette isn't like anything I own and that is what drew me to it. Now it has had some incredible feedback but also quite a bit of negative feedback but I can now finally let my readers know if I think it is a hit or miss.
