What I Got For Christmas 2017

This is definitely the first year I've noticed the magical festive "spark" is gone for me now - I didn't go to bed Christmas Eve excited, or wake up at the crack of dawn.  I suppose that means it's official: I'm an adult. Regardless, I definitely got some fabulous gifts.

Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette 
I haven't dipped into this yet, first impressions are that it's stunning! I've wanted this for ages, so I'm really happy it's finally part of my collection. 

Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette 
I haven't used this yet - but the shades are mesmerising!

Charlotte Tilbury Limited Edition Lipsticks 
I've been lusting after these limited edition lipsticks - English Beauty, Shanghai Nights and American Sweetheart - since the very second they came out. 
Sorry I wouldn't even swatch these for you! I wanted them pristine. I mean, is there anything better than a fresh lipstick?  

Answer: no, there is not.

Take a look at this packaging though!
I also got £30 credit to spend at Charlotte Tilbury, because my mum paid for express delivery and a gift box which she didn't get. They arrived on Christmas Eve, thankfully!

Wayne Goss The Face Set
I got The Collection last year and found them to be the best brushes I'd ever tried. I had to have more so these were my 'main present' at the top of my list. I did try taking a photo of them but, A) I'd already used them so they were a little dirty, and B) honestly, photos just didn't do them justice.

Personalised Radley Make Up Bag 
This was a gift from my Nan, and inside was a gift voucher for a local shopping centre, too!

Bobbi Brown Eyeshadow Palette & Highlighting Powder
I've already dipped into these two - and they're amazing. The Caviar & Rubies Eyeshadow Palette especially is so pigmented, and the shades have so little kick back (excess powder is, admittedly, a common trait of BB eyeshadows in my experience).

I needed this! I wash my brushes at least once a month but they're always such a pain in the arse to dry. There'll be a review up on this soon!

Coco Chanel Biography
I'm not a fashion fan but Coco Chanel is one of my idols, what an inspirational, classy woman!

I also got some money and a handful of gift cards - I've been so lucky this year!
