I am a teacher and always get gifts from the children at Christmas. I can never get over how generous parents are and I got some lovely gifts, above are the beauty ones. I got this Get Fruity Mango Bath and Body set which smells lovely and has a handy shower puff included. I love these little sets and always use them up rather than buying shower gel in my weekly shop. The children in my class are always commenting on how much lipbalm I use so I had a little laugh when I saw these next presents. Firstly the Vaseline Lips gift set which is a large tin containing 3 tins of the product. I love my Vaseline and will get through these very quickly. The last item is very cool and was brought back when a pupil was on holiday in America. It is a Jolly Rancher Lip Balm. This smells delicious and is actually really moisturising on the lips. It is a massive lip balm, jumbo size, and has a cute mirror on the lid.
Among the gifts I recieved from my folks, I was also lucky enough to be given the above makeup items. My mum wanted to make sure she got things I wanted in the righg shades so she asked for a list and then chose things from it. I got the How To Look The Best At Everything kit from Benefit. I went shopping with my mum earlier in the month and had my colours matched for this so she knew which shade to get. I am in the shade Medium. Next, something I have been lusting after for a long while, the Urban Decay Naked Basics palette which I just can't wait to get to grips with. The next two items are from Mac which my mum managed to get online for a cheaper price by getting them unboxed. The first is a Mac Eyeliner and the second, which I am hooked on already, is Mac Lipstick in Shy Girl. This is more high end makeup than I have had in one go before and I really can't wait to get trying it all out!
My boyfriend got me an amazing makeup case which I will post about at a later date when I have organised it. Inside the case he had wrapped Love At First Shine lipgloss set from Benefit. There are some gorgeous shades in here which I will enjoy playing about with. Next, and one of my favourite gifts, I got this gorgeous Mac Lipstick from my boyfriends little girl (with a little help from him!) She chose the shade herself and it's the gorgeous Pink Nouveau. From my little sister I recieved this Sleek Original Palette. I don't have much Sleek so I'm really happy to add this to my collection.
From my boyfriends mum I got this large Autograph Make-Up Set. I thought autograph was a Tesco brand but I have since been told that it is Marks and Spencer's. The set has some lovely looking products including a lovely eyeshadow quad. She also kindly gave me the Along Came Betty Handbag Collection. I recieved this last year however it has been restyled and looks much cooler this year.
No Christmas gift list would be complete without some Soap & Glory! My boyfriend very kindly bought me the Yule Monty gift set and he didn't even need reminded! This years case is really cool in a lovely pink and silver design. It is also a handier size than last years version. This includes and impressive 9 full sized products and also 3 small samples.
I have obviously been very good this year because I really was spoilt! I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and I look forward to reading others posts.
