Some Beauty Christmas Prezzies !

Well, Christmas was so amazing ! Here are some ( not all ) of the things I received from my family, but mainly just beauty related things :).

First thing is the "Volume Millions Lashes" in black, by L'Oreal, which I got from my sister. This is an unopened tube of this mascara as I'm almost finished my other one and I love it so much <3.

This next present I hinted to my mum way back in October and i couldn't believe she rememebered. It's  TheBodyShop's "The Sparkler", which gives you a gorgeous all over shimmer for maybe a night out or special occasion.


MAC lipstick - Russian Red 
MAC Lip Liner - Cherry


 
 These two lip products have been on my "wish list " for a while now. I've never really been the red lip kinda girl but I think you need the classic red lipstick in your makeup bag and I think this matte colour is brilliant. Obviously the lip liner is optional but I feel it gives more of a neater finish and more vibrant.








These three items, I received also from my sister in a L'Oreal "Glam" box. I really love the powder trio and lipstick as they are really flirty and my type of shades but I feel the eye liner isn't a true enough black as I like my liner to be quite dramatic.

L'Oreal Super Liner Luminizer
Black Amethyst 
L'Oreal Glam Bronze, Sun Radiance Trio
201- Blonde Harmony  



L'Oreal Colour Riche L/S
390 Nude Treasure 
CHANEL MIROIR DOUBLE FACETTES

This last prezzie was from my mum and I was so shocked when I opened this. I feel it's something I will have for years and really feminen and cute. LOL.

Thanks for reading !


Hope you all have a amazing new year ! love Kirsten xxx

Hmm..., should I or shouldn't I ........ ?

I think its safe to say to say that I'm obsessed with make-up, so here's some of the " Hits and Misses " in my opinion.

MISS - So the first miss is " Collection 2000 Shine Away Powder ". Well when I first bought it I thought it would do what it says and keep the shininess on my face under control, but no, it done absolutely nothing for me except make me orange. No matter which way i applied it ( powder brush, kabuki or the sponge it came with ) it just wouldn't work. Usually I would put it down to the shade I got, but I got the medium shade which i usually am in general make-up so its definitely a miss for me. Good thing it was only £4:19. 
HIT - For me the Youtube " beauty guru " society is a great way to find new products and people's opinions on them. So the "Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer " has been raved about for a while now. It is just amazing how it covers dark circles, blemishes and even large pores all day long. It has even bet my "YSL  touch√© √©clat "! I don't use collection 2000 very often but this is definitely one of my must haves.

MISS- A brand that I think you can only get in the UK, Avon, sells beauty cosmetics and other girly things. I get an Avon catalogue delivered to my house and I sometimes order a few thing. Last week i ordered the " Avon Arabian Glow - Golden Sands " cream eye shadow quad, and boy was I disappointed. To sum them up they look nice and pigmented swatched but they last about 30 minutes on your eyes. They wipe off A LOT  very quickly and have rubbish colour pay off. I wasn't expecting amazing results but nothing this bad.

thanks for reading guys

HIT - And finally probably my most used eye shadow palette, the "Too Faced Natural Eye Palette". I bought it a while ago now and it never seems to run out. As the picture shows it has nine gorgeous shades and they are VERY pigmented. I even think some of them have a better colour pay off than MAC eye shadows, which  are hard to bet ! A really good make-up tutorial using this palette, is a video buy Juicystar07 and she uses it very well.
