Beauty Bits I Got For Christmas...

Hey everyone! Today's post is just a quick one talking through the beauty bits I was lucky enough to receive for Christmas. I have never done a 'What I Got For' post before as I simply feel like I have to justify everything, which I don't, there will people who will get more and there will be people who will get less.

So rather than not doing the post at all, I thought I would talk through the few beauty bits I was lucky enough to get, as that way its (hopefully) not too pretentious, nor is it a missed day/really long post talking about 12238364 bottles of bubble bath.

As well as my beautiful Nars Lipstick from my friend Becky (read here), my lovely friend Laura got me a MAC Eyeshadow that I had been desperate to add to my palettes since I started them a couple of years ago (along with a few other lovely bits of course!) The colour is Sumptuous Olive, and its a gorgeous golden-green shade and a colour I know I will get so much wear out of.

The rest of the pieces were all from my Mum (Santa!) and its safe to say I was spoiled. In no particularly order my heart skipped a few beats when I opened both of the MAC Nutcracker Sweet Pigment/Glitter sets. As much as I am a lipstick lover, I always have shadow and liner on, and I love wearing pigments and glitters on a daily basis. One box is more pink/brown toned whilst the other features more copper/red tones, and I love both equally and cannot wait to properly test them out!

When I saw photographs of the Urban Decay Full Spectrum Palette a couple of months ago I knew it was another of their palettes that I needed in my collection without hesitation. I had seen it at my local counter a couple of times, and if I'm completely honest didn't properly get chance to look due to being so busy, as well as forgetting I put this on my list! It was a lovely surprise and I adore the mix of colours that many people may not consider 'normal!'

Next up is a beautiful and dainty nude lipstick from Chanel. Boy is a classic nude shade from the Rouge Coco Shine range that I have longed to be in my collection for a very long time. I definitely think that 2016 was the year I fell in love with nude lipsticks, and this is certainly one of them...

And last but certainly not least, I got my hands on a bottle of Modern Muse Le Rouge by Estee Lauder. Its almost a tradition that I get a different bottle of perfume each Christmas, and I had had my eye on this one for a very long time. Light and floral, this scent is timeless and perfect at anytime of day all year round. I love the fact that my Mum also got the bottle engraved, that's just another personal touch that I really really love!

Like I said I also got numerous bottles of bubble bath bits, but there's no need to mention those!
