What I Got For Christmas 2016

Well, Christmas 2016 has been absolutely lovely. It was our first one with Baby J and she just seemed to love every minute! I hope you all had a lovely time too and enjoyed it with your loved ones. 

In this post I want to share with you the beauty related gifts I received. If you want to take a look at the products and maybe purchase any for yourself, just click on the titles of the product. 

Spectrum 8 Piece Eye Blending Set

These Spectrum brushes were from my husband. I like this brand because the brushes are fantastic quality, beautiful to look at and are also cruelty free. There are brushes here for every possible eye makeup look. 

The set consists of – 

B06 – Tall Tapered Blender

B04 – Small Angled Shader

A08 – Medium Fluffy Shader

A07 – Stubby Shader

A12– Fluffy Pencil 

A13 – Short Smudge

A16 – Precision Crease

C06 – Tulip Eye Contour

Morphe 35N Eyeshadow Palette 

I purchased this palette myself with money from my Nana. It’s something I’ve been after for a long time. There are 35 shades which are all matte. I wanted a palette without shimmery shades for a more sophisticated look. The shades range from browns, to purples to greys and blacks.

I used the palette on Christmas Eve and Christmas day. Here’s how I styled it out on Christmas Eve – 

SEVENTEEN Blend and Blur Brush Collection 

These gorgeous brushes were from my lovely friend Natasha. I just love the rainbow effect on the metals below the bristles. Natasha knows me so well and knows how much I love my makeup! These will come in very handy. They’re beautifully soft. 

The set consists of – 

3 x Eye brushes

1 x Cheek brush

1 x Lip brush 

DKNY Energising Eau De Toilette

This was one of my gifts from Mum and Dad. It has a gorgeous, zingy fragrance which I’ve become a bit addicted to! This perfume has top notes of citrus fruits, chilled vodka and tomato leaves – a beautiful combination! 

Makeup Revolution 12 Days of Christmas  

This little beauty was also from my husband. As you know from previous posts, I absolutely love Makeup Revolution and have been very keen to get my hands on this beautiful box of goodies. Luckily, my husband listens to me! 

This box contains 12 gorgeous makeup products – 1x Eye Primer, 1x Aqua Priming Base, 1x Strobe Cream, 1x Lipgloss Set, 1x Pro Go Mini Brush Set, 1x Pro Fixing Spray, 1x Blush Palette, 1x Strobe Palette, 1x Brow Palette & 3x Eyeshadow Palettes

Swatches of the Lipsticks

If you’d like me to do a separate post which goes into more detail about the products in this set, then please let me know.
