Beauty Products I Got For Christmas

Well, it's fair to say this Christmas was cracking for me and my beauty drawers! Santa stocked me up with all kinds of glittery goodness and skincare treats to enjoy. I always love receiving makeup because I think of the person and occasion whenever I use it- just me?

Despite me firmly telling him not to, my lovely boyfriend splashed out on this gorgeous TooFaced gift set, comprising of an eyeshadow palette, pressed glitter palette, cheek trio, and miniature Shadow Insurance Primer, Better Than Sex Mascara, and Gingerbread Man liquid lipstick. 

The details in this set just make it for me, with a sweet cookie scent filling the box, gingerbread men on the lipstick, cute characters on the packaging, and punny names like 'Hot & Coal' and 'I Love Yule'.

Colourpop is raved about on every beauty blog and channel going, so naturally, I've always wanted to try it, and my sister kindly gifted my first items! 

I showed her the Disney Designers release months ago, and was absolutely thrilled to unwrap the lux liquid lip in 'Wonderboy'. Sassy Megara is probably my favourite Disney girl, and this rosy berry lipstick looks like it will be a favourite in my collection.

My sister didn't even know who Kathleen Lights was when she bought the Zodiac palette, but she soon found out when I opened it and shrieked "Kathleen Lights! I watch her videos all the time!". 

The colour story of the palette is very unusual and not something I would usually go for, but the packaging is just gorgeous and I'm very excited to dive into that shimmery aqua Pisces shade.

My brother-in-common-law knows you can't go wrong with LUSH products, and gave me a citrussy Happy shower gel which is packed with seaweed shimmer, blue raspberry scented Galaxy lip scrub, and some Boom toothy tabs. 

They taste like cola, which feels very strange to brush your teeth with, but they do work brilliantly. Toothy tabs are one of my favourite LUSH bits, and these are definitely the nicest flavour I've tried. 

Continuing the LUSH love, my boyfriend's parents gave me a Relax gift set. As soon as they handed it to me the beautiful scent of real lavender hit me, and inside are four treats full of it: Dream Cream, Sleepy shower gel, Twilight bath bomb, and A French Kiss bubble bar. 

You know how there's always something you won't use in a gift set? Not the Pink It Up set my cousin and her boyfriend bought me from The Body Shop! A strawberry shine lip oil, rose hydrating face mist, and pink grapefruit shower gel make up this trio and they're all things I'd choose myself. 

They also gave me the Vitamin E hydrating toner which sounds dreamy for my desert-dry complexion.

Said lizard-like skin will also enjoy the Weleda Skin Food that my boyfriend gave me! I've sworn by the original for years but it is rather sticky, so I'm looking forward to trying the light version. It came with a free REN BB cream too. 

When we saw the Cover FX custom cover drops for something like a third of the price in Beauty Outlet, my mum snapped them up for my stocking. The sales assistant gave me a great tip: buy a cheap foundation and boost the coverage with these. 

Finally, it wouldn't be Christmas without sparkle, and my sister added to my Collection Glam Crystals with this grey version in 'Hustle'. It's full of holo glitters and super pretty.

Have you tried these products? What did you get for Christmas?
