I know that Christmas feels like quite a distant memory already but I couldn’t miss out on sharing what I got for Christmas as there’s so much goodness here.  I normally write this post up straight away but actually having a few weeks to test and use the products makes this more than just a haul and more of a first impressions post. As you probably know, every Christmas and birthday I head out with my dad makeup shopping as my present and whilst I did go with a wish list, like always I deviated away – so here’s what I chose!

Red lipstick is an absolute must for me in December and as the years have gone on I’ve become braver and braver with it. There was a time when I wouldn’t dare go for red lipstick and then when I eventually did, I found them smudging, fading fast and on my teeth – not good looks. Over the years, I’ve found formulations which work much better for me and ones that I actually trust to stay in place. As I become braver with red lipsticks this list expands so now I’ve got a whole collection of red lipsticks I absolutely love. So today I thought I’d share those with you!

If you’ve been following my blog for a while, you’ve probably been awaiting this post as it happens every Christmas and every birthday. It has become mine and my dad’s tradition to go makeup shopping twice a year for my present, heading up to London and having a day looking around all the makeup stands. It’s glorious. I particularly love our Christmas shop as I love London when it’s all festive plus there are some great gift sets which I sometimes pick. My wish list is as relaxed as ever, I’ve got a few ideas and a few definites but please shout any last minute recommendations at me before we go tomorrow!
