Christmas Beauty Buys + Gifts

It's Still Christmas Time, right? 

I thought I would take the time to go over some goodies I was gifted or picked up with my Christmas pennies, who doesn't love a beauty haul. It's been such a long time since I actually went over bits I have been picking up myself, so I thought I would do a throwback on here highlighting some of the new releases or old favourites I have opted to spend my money on - or was kindly given as a gift. 

The DiorSkin Nude Luminizer Lolli Glow in "Pink Delight" (£37.00) has to be my favourite. I was like a magpie with a shiny object. Everything about this highlighter is just utter perfection. The shade is a soft peachy pink, champagne goldy glow. It was love at first swatch. It's also limited edition, so if you want it, get it while they have it!

The Clinique iD Moisturiser (£36.00) was actually what I had gone into Debenhams for. Since the preview came out I have been thinking about how fab it is. You pick a base to suit your skin type, then a serum to go inside depending on your skin needs. I opted for the hydrating but oil-free base, with the blue inside - which is targeting uneven skin texture. - there will be a full review on this later this month I am sure, but so far so good. It's really nice. 

The Stila Oh My Stars Glitter & Glow Liquid Eye Shadow Set (£29.00) was an impulse buy - but one I probably should have done ages ago. I hadn't tried any of the Magnificent Metals - which is shocking I know! I feel like the last person to try them, but so far Kitten Karma is really impressing me. I cannot wait to try them out properly. 

The Caudalie French Kiss Lip Balm in Innocence (£10.00) was a gift from my Mum at Stobo Castle. I love the Caudalie lip conditioner, so I thought the tinted lip balm may be just as nice. So far, so good. Definitely not as thick, but for day use, I didn't expect any more. The shade is beautiful on the lips, makes them look a little bit rosier than what they would be typically - which is just what I wanted. It also smells good too, which is always a bonus! 

The Jo Malone Pine & Eucalyptus Candle (£47.00) was a gift too. Rebecca kindly got me it, I squealed when I seen it. Who doesn't love a Jo Malone Candle? They are SO fancy, so Boujee, so extra. But everyone needs to experience one if they love candles. They really are something special, and the smell payoff is just perfection - and the aesthetic? YES! 

What did you get beauty-wise for your Christmas? Or managed to pick up in the sales? Let me know :)
