With an ever-expanding beauty wish list which I whip out and add to more times than I care to admit, it is only to be expected than some of my most coveted pieces will end up under the Christmas tree, and I was more than grateful to receive this lovely selection of palettes and lipsticks from my fiancé this year.
The Splendor in the Grass blush palette from the Guy Bourdin Holiday Collection was love at first sight when I spied in on the NARS counter a few weeks ago. It is a beautiful quad of blushers including Albatross, Dolce Vita, Sex Appeal and Angelika to highlight and flush your cheeks with a mixture of matte and shimmering shades. The Charlotte Tilbury Dolce Vita eyeshadow palette is my first taster into this soon-to-be cult beauty brand but I am sure it will not be my last! It is the perfect collection of warm browns and golds with plenty of shimmer which I am excited to use for my New Year’s Eve night out.
My new lipsticks cut quite a contrast next to each other, with YSL No.13 Peach Passion offering a gorgeous summer-bright peachy lip versus MAC’s Rebel which is the vampy, plum lipstick I’ve been wanting to add to my collection for ages now! I think it would look stunning combined with the Charlotte Tilbury palette on my eyes and a flush of NARS Dolce Vita blush on the cheeks.
Merry Christmas to all my wonderful readers – I hope you all had the loveliest of days and I look forward to hearing what beauty products might have appeared under your Christmas tree this year.
