Lush Cosmetic Warrior Face Mask

Firstly, I'd like to apologise for not blogging in so long! I have been extremely busy with uni work recently but I'm going to make it my New Year's resolution to be more organised so I have time for blogging and uni work. Anyway, I better get cracking with today's review...

Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara

Ever since Cara Delevingne started the eyebrow craze there has been an increase in the sales of brow products as people try to recreate her famous eyebrows. I've spent a small fortune on eyebrow products too over the last year, trying to find the best one to improve my brows. Recently, I've been loving the Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Mascara. This is the first brow mascara I've used because I normally stick to brow pencils - and, I LOVE IT!

L'Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Water

I used to use face wipes religiously - even through the micellar water hype I was't tempted to change. Eventually, I broke my routine and tried my friend's L'Oreal Skin Perfection Micellar Water; and the next day I went to my local Boots and bought a bottle for myself.

Ted Baker have a lovely selection of Christmas gifts in Boots this year. For my birthday a friend bought me this Ted Baker Mini Trio Gift set and I thought I would share it with you guys as I think it would make a great Christmas gift for friends, sisters, or mums.

MAC Soar Lip Pencil

After buying the MAC Twig lipstick I convinced myself that I needed to invest in a lip pencil too to complete the look! Whirl and Spice seem to be a popular choice to pair with Twig, however, I loved the look of Soar and I also think it goes well with some of my other MAC lipsticks too.

Essie Bahama Mama

I've found my new favourite nail polish brand; Essie. After years of looking at the stand, admiring the vast array of nail polishes, and then walking on, I finally decided to try an Essie nail polish. What shade did I go for? Of course, I picked up Bahama Mama as it's the perfect shade for autumn and winter - a "warm, rich, creamy deep plum" is how this nail polish is described on the Essie website.

MAC Twig Lipstick

I'm currently battling an obsession with MAC lipsticks - every time I pass a MAC counter I feel an urge to buy one! The latest addition to my ever-growing collection of MAC lipsticks is Twig. I had been eyeing up this lipstick for some time before I finally bought it. Twig is satin in formula and described on the MAC website as "soft muted brownish-pink", and I'd say they've hit the nail on the head with that description. What I love most about this lipstick is that I can apply it in the morning and the colour will remain on my lips all day, without needing to be reapplied. However, I would say that Twig starts to feel less creamy after a few hours of wearing it and my lips start to go dry - but that could just be my lips!

Lush Haul

I'm ashamed to admit that I have not visited a Lush store in a while now. However, the realization that Lush's Christmas products are out now is what tempted me into a store. I had completely used up all of my Lush products so this was the perfect opportunity to stock up - mainly on bubble bars as these are my favourite product that Lush sells!

Benefit The POREfessional

The POREfessional primer from Benefit is a key player in my makeup routine. Ever since I began wearing foundation I have always put a primer underneath it but it wasn't until about seven months ago that I decided to take the plunge and invest in a slightly more expensive primer. After reading lots of positive reviews of The POREfessional I decided that this was the one - and it could be the best decision I've ever made!

Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette

I've finally got my hands on the Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette! I'm aware that I'm slightly late to the game - this has been on my wishlist since I first heard about it! Anyway, when I first opened the box to this I instantly fell in love with the new packaging; it's magnetic and has a beautiful design on the case, which makes it more elegant in appearance than it's predecessors. Another bonus of this palette is that it came with a leaflet showing four different looks you can create with it (I don't know if all the smoky palettes come with this leaflet or whether it was specific to the place I bought it from, which was Feel Unique). I found this leaflet useful to start with because it gave me some idea of what shades go well together.

Olivia Burton Wonderland Watch

Wearing a watch isn't something that I'm used to - I haven't worn one since I was 12 years old! However, I thought that it was finally time to invest in a decent watch. A lot of people recommended Olivia Burton watches to me so I started browsing them on Topshop's website and instantly fell in love with the various colours and designs. I settled for the Wonderland Black and Gold Watch but it was a tough decision between that and the mink and rose gold watch (which I may have to buy at a later date!). The midi dial is the perfect size for my wrist - I was tempted to buy a big dial watch but I now know that would be far too big for me as I have quite small wrists! I find it very easy to tell the time accurately because the markings on the watch are clear and the size of the strap fits my wrist perfectly. Let me know which Olivia Burton watch is your favourite in the comments below.

Hello everyone! I thought that I'd jump straight in with a few recent home purchases. But what about an introduction? I'm sure some of you are wondering why I haven't started with telling you a bit about me, well... I wasn't really sure what to say so if you'd like to know who I am before you start reading my post then head on over to the About page. Otherwise, lets get cracking...
