My Christmas Presents

Posted by Olivia Jayne at 00:00
Hey guys,
I hope you all had a great christmas! I know I did! Today I thought I'd tell you some beauty products I got for Christmas. I'm not going to bore you with all the wonderful gifts I received because I don't want this to be a boring blog post as I am a beauty blogger, anyway, here are the beauty products I got for christmas.

Ok, so you all know what products I wanted for christmas if you've read my previous blog posts. I haven't yet received them all because my family often spend Christmas abroad seeing as we have a holiday home so these are the products I've gotten over seas. I'll let you know what other gifts I received when I return to the UK.

1. Britney Spears Perfume Kit
I have previously had the perfumes Midnight Fantasy, Fantasy and Curious by Britney Spears and they have all been some of my favourite perfumes so when I opened this present I was thrilled. It contains: Fantasy, Radiance and Curious (Radiance also smells amazing!) and it also has a small container things where you can place the small tube of perfume into it to travel with. It's like the little things where you pump the perfume into a small container except with this one you can swap it quicker. This was a great present.

2. One Direction One Moment Perfume.
So over the past year, I have joined all the Directioners out there in becoming obsessed with One Direction. I always liked them but this year I've watched their film (which started my obsession), bought their latest CD, concert Tickets, magazines, books.. everything. One Moment was on my christmas list simply because it was One Direction so when I received it and opened it, the first thing I did was smell it (obviously) and it smells amazing! I would actually buy it even if it wasn't One Direction, its one of my favourites and its all I've worn over the past few days.

3. Beauty Blender
This was a late add-on to my Beauty Christmas List because I've seen so many you tubers rave about them. They are a small sponge that you place in water and it grows, you then dampen it and use it to blend foundation or makeup in. It is really good and I didn't notice how big it grew! If you see in the group photo of my presents you'll see it in its small packaging before I put it in water and then below it's lots bigger and will not fit into the packaging.

4. Real Techniques Makeup Brushes
So I wanted some great makeup brushes for Christmas and I got some! These are great, I would definitely say better than Mac ones (my sister has Mac ones) and much cheaper. If you are deciding to purchase some good makeup brushes, I'd defineatly go with these, they're worth the money you pay for them. I only got the starter set (A multi-task brush which I use for blush/powder foundation, a foundation brush which I use for liquid foundation and concealer and an Eyeshadow brush.).

5. Maybelline Colour Sensation Lipsticks
I wanted a pink and red lipstick and I got them from this brand. I already have a purple one from this brand so I already knew they were great. They are so pigmented and the colour really does last. When I opened it on Christmas Day, I swatched them on my hand, now on the 27th baring in mind that I've washed 3 times since, they are still visible on the back of my hand. Obviously they've faded, but they're still visible. I have the colours 870 and 895.

 6. A Mac Eyeshadow Palette.
This is my first Mac product! Yay! I wanted an eyeshadow palette containing some gold and browns etc but didn't ask for Mac so when I opened this product i was so excited to try it! These eyeshadows are super pigmented, last so well and are so vivid, I love this present.

Thank you for reading! What did you get for Christmas?
