Hi, everyone! I've already shared with you the amazing makeup-filled gift that my sister got me this Christmas and now it's time for a peek at what Santa (i.e., my overly generous, extremely adorable parents) picked up for me this year. In addition to some much needed work wear, they were lovely enough to indulge some of my biggest beauty wishes. I really was like a little kid Christmas morning opening it all up!
We all know that I'm a huge fan of the Josie Maran Coconut Watercolour Eye Shadows, so I was super excited to get the Josie Maran Winter Dreams Argan Colour Collection. It not only features another of my beloved liquid shadows, but also a mascara, a cream cheek colour, a highlighter, and a bottle of her famous argan oil. Can't wait to dig in! I was also bitten by the Jo Malone bug this year, and it was her newest fragrance, Wood Sage and Sea Salt, that completely captured my heart. The scent is incredibly unique in that it has zero floral notes to it. It's a touch sweet, a touch salty, and very fresh. I'm in looove! I can see this bottle going quickly. Perhaps the item I squealed loudest about was the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette. These blushes were one of my favourite products of the year and, fortuitously, this palette did not contain any of the shades I already owned. It's a true thing of beauty!
I also received some gorgeous goodies from Bourjois and The Body Shop. The Bourjois Le Rouge set really is a perfect collection. Not only does it contain a Rouge Edition Velvet in Personne Ne Rouge (a lovely warm red in my favourite lip formula of the year), it also features a glimmery golden liner, an eye kohl, a top coat, and a volumizing mascara. It truly has it all! The Body Shop really re-captured my heart this past year, so I was so happy to see a selection of my favourite treats from the brand under the tree. I scored my new favourite makeup remover, their Camomile Sumptuous Cleansing Butter, a couple goodies from their Coconut range (love the sweet scent!) and one of their brand new nail polishes in Body Shop Green. Finally, the gift was completed with two goodies from the Glazed Apple holiday range, which has a beautifully tangy-sweet-refreshing fragrance.
Needless to say, I was totally spoiled this holiday. I am now back in Toronto and, while my suitcase remains unpacked (whoops), I have been eagerly delving into these new proudcts. Look out for some reviews soon!
What did Santa bring you this year? Tempted by any of my new goodies?
Thanks so much for dropping by! xo
