The Estee Edit Gritty and Glow Palette

When it comes to palettes, they by far exceed every other type of make-up for me, and reach that ultimate position of being my firm favorite thing to buy and try. I'm quite literally obsessed with make-up palettes. In December last year alone I got 8 new palettes, and I'm already on my fourth this month - meaning 2017 is looking decidedly like a palette takeover on a whole new level! Having tried so many recently, and being a die-hard fangirl of the good-ole palettes, I feel that there's one that's gone under the radar and actually deserves a whole heap more noise: The Estee Edit Gritty and Glow Palette.

How I Contour & Highlight My Cheekbones

It's no secret that I love a good contouring powder, and despite having oily skin, I'm a big fan of highlighters too. I mean, who can resist those sparkly pots of shimmer? I've tried quite a few different ones this past year, but my fail-safe routine, the Step-By-Step Contour Stick Trio from Smashbox, has always been there to fall back on - like a trusty friend who never lets you down. And as a result, I happily re-buy time and time again.

Beauty Pie - The New Make Up Buying Revolution?

Rewind to mid-December and the most stunning black box landed on my doorstep. Wrapped in matching bow, the embossed top simply said 'Beauty Pie' - the only clue as to what was inside. Like opening a beautifully wrapped Christmas gift, I took care in revealing the contents, unsure of what I'd find. Inside was a gorgeous array of beauty essentials in simple packaging and some information which I was intrigued by straight away...

December Favourites

With Christmas now done and dusted for another year, the turkey leftovers just about finished and the presents have almost found their way from the lounge where they were unwrapped, to their new homes in the rest of the house, it seems like December is just about over... So with the festive season just about wrapped up (see what I did there?!) it was time to wrap up my December Favourites too. And with some pretty cool products gracing the list this month, I've been excited to showcase some of my monthly favourite's...

My Top Pick From Benefit This Christmas - Gals Just Wanna Have Fun

It's been a while since I featured Benefit here on the blog, but they're never far from my daily beauty routine because I use their new Brow Range products every day. Having used Benefit since I was a teenager, I'll always enjoy their products and can fully appreciate their girly and fun designs and styles. Plus, the products perform so well that it's rare I've ever been disappointed with a Benefit product.

A Walk Through Illamasqua Chisel and Glow Gift Set

I've been desperate to try Illamasqua products properly for a while.

I'm always so drawn by their perfect looking goodies which always look absolutely fierce when I see them - exactly the sort of make-up that I love. Having not tried much of theirs before, I was like a kid at Christmas when I was looking through their current Christmas range. With some seriously seductive looking sets this Christmas, I struggled to whittle it down to my favourite, but I finally settled on the Chisel and Glow Gift Set.

Christmas Perfume Pick - Michael Buble By Invitation Holiday Gift Set

*This is a sponsored feature*

When it comes to perfume, I'm as picky as they come. I also like to think that I'm a bit of a perfume snob - someone who doesn't fall into fad's, or jump on the band-wagon when it comes to new releases. As a result I'm incredibly loyal to the perfumes I find and love - because they're quite few and far between. I'll happily try new ones out, giving them a good go, but there aren't many I'll repurchase or recommend to my friends. With Christmas seeing women all over the country gifted with perfume from their partners, friends and families, all purchased with the hope that they'll love it, I wanted to stick my hand in the air, raise my voice and recommend the Michael Buble By Invitation Holiday Set as the perfume gift to give this Christmas. And as a self confessed perfume snob, there's so many reason why this set is the one I recommend...
