Gosh 'Silver Rose' Forever Metallic Eyeshadow Stick!

It's almost Christmas! I'm sitting here in Christmas Eve by the fire watching some pretty crappy TV and thought why not throw out another little review for you guys just in time for the big day! I've never really tried anything from Gosh but last time I was in Superdrug I picked up a few things, a couple of which are absolutely amazing!

I'm a fan of quick to apply eye products, aka - slap on and go. In the morning before work I don't have time to blend out a hundred eyeshadows, I little rally need something I can throw on that makes me look like I put the effort in. (I have a post about my favourites coming soon) this recent purchase have made the cut. I don't think it's left my makeup bag since I got it - which is saying something. This shade is a pretty, beige colour with plenty shimmer. It has a very metallic effect which brightens up my dull complexion in the morning. It glides onto the lid like a dream and a quick blend round the edges leaves an eyeshadow look that gives the impression of a lot of time and effort. It lasts all day on me with a primer with very little fade and no creasing. I'll definitely be picking up more of these from Gosh!

I hope you all have an amazing Christmas! I'll be back soon with another post for you guys!

Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Spotlight Kit!

It's getting quite close the Christmas now and I'm super excited! This little kit is a great one if you're looking to try out the shimmering skin perfectors without committing to a full purchase, or for anyone like me it would make a great stocking filler. It's super easy and available to pick up from Space NK too.

Becca's Shimmering Skin Perfecters are super popular among bloggers and makeup artists and this little kit of 3 is perfect. I love how handy and small they are, super easy to chuck in a makeup bag and take with you on the go. You get 3 shades: Opal, Champagne Gold and Pearl. I believe Champagne Gold is an exclusive this Christmas but I could be wrong. I favourite out of the three is Opal, which I believe is the most popular in powder form too. To be honest I'm not usually a fan of cream highlighters as I have quite oily skin and powder and creams can clash every now and then. There's something about these that just blend into the skin seamlessly though, either mixed with foundation to add a subtle glow or tapped on the high points of the face for a more targeted sheen. I find they blend well over powder too which is unusual for such a creamy product. I also like these mini sizes for the doe-for applicator, it makes it super easy to precisely add product. An all round winner for me and I sense more Becca's products will be making their way into my makeup stash!

Soap & Glory Eau-La-La Christmas Gift Set!

Oh my goodness! Have you guys smelt the Orangeasm scent from S&G? It's relatively new and my goodness it's beautiful. If you love a bit of citrus or know a friend who does then you definitely need to get your hands on this gift set!

For a bargain of £16 you get your hands on the shower gel, body butter and body spray from this gorgeous tangerine scent. It's super zesty and I love how the shower gel makes me feel fresh and awake first thing in the morning. Complete with the super moisturising body butter my skin is left super nourished and smells fabulous. I also really like the body spray, it's good for the days that you don't want to wear a full on perfume but don't just want to smell like washing powder. Am I the only one who feels that way? Haha. Regardless, this set is a great gift for any beauty lover who loves a citrus scent! Boots usually have all their Christmas gift sets on 3 for 2 at this time of year too so be sure to check out what else you can grab!

Have you checked out the Orangeasm range?

New Things: Glasses!

Heeeeey everyone! December is here already, which is quite terrifying. Christmas is about 2 weeks away and my present buying game is not strong this year at all. However I did recently pick up some new glasses and I thought I'd share them with you. Specsavers have 2 for 1 on their designer frames which in my opinion is a total bargain! I hate my old glasses so even though my prescription hadn't changed i decided to just bite the bullet and splash out on some glasses I'll actually wear.

I was having a pretty crappy hair day when I took these photos but we'll just ignore that.. The frames I went for are both by the brand Osiris which I hadn't really heard too much about to be honest. I thought that they only made shoes but apparently glasses too! My old glasses were quite small, metal frames which felt really heavy on my face. This time I went for bigger lenses, so I don't feel like I'm looking over or under them like before. The plastic frames on both make them feel super light to wear that I hardly notice they're there. Since it was 2 for 1 I went for a plain pair, which are a dark tortoiseshell (C90) which I think suits me much better than black. The other pair (B69) are a bright, almost neon red that I'm so in love with! Not only is the colour amazing but the glasses are a really nice shape too. When one pair is free, why not try something different right? Being a daily glasses wearer it's nice to feel like I want to wear them rather than it being a burden! Im Super happy with both pairs and I'd recommend anyone to try something out of their comfort zone for a change!

What are your thoughts on changing up glasses?

Lush Christmas Picks!

Every year I go to Lush and end up picking up a few things.. Or more than just a few things! I always love the Christmas collection and some of my all time fabricates are available at this time of year.

I picked up quite a few things, some of which are totally new to me and some which I've used time and time again. Yearly favourites of mine include 'Snow White' which is the big, white bath bomb which smells like apples! It's super sweet and turns the bath water pink. I also always pick up the 'Christmas Penguin' which it so adorable! It has a fresh, clean smell that is very relaxing in the bath. The 'Christmas Penguin'is also a bubble bar so you don't have to lob the whole thing in at once to get some pretty bubbles - just a small amount is enough. My last yearly pick is the 'Magic Wand' which is a pretty pink star that you swirl in your bath to create bubbles and pink bath water. It can be used more than once and has the wonderfully sweet smell of the famous 'Snow Fairy'. New to me is year is the 'Northern Lights' a bright purple bath bomb which has a kind of lavender scent, I'm excited to try this one! I bet it turns the water a super bright colour. I also picked up the 'Dashing Santa' which has a beautiful citrus scent, the lady in Lush told me he has something on his feet which when you place him in the bath it makes him look like he's running! How cute. I snagged a 'Candy Mountain' bubble bar which is a super adorble pink cone with some shimmer too. All you need to do it crumble a little in the bath and its bubbles galore! I found the super cute 'Butter Bear' hiding in my local Lush and instantly fell in love, a kind of vanilla/Shea butter scent that's sweet yet warming at the same time. This little cutie doesn't make many bubbles but he left my skin feeling super soft and moisturised! 'Santa Claus' is a classics which I'm yet to try! He has a mandarin scent and apparently makes the bath water green! Last but not least I picked up the 'Drummers Drumming' bubble wand which is so cute and has little bells attached! It has a lovely sweet scent that reminds me of some kind of sweetie from my childhood! Delicious.
