What I Got for Christmas: Makeup Edition

Charlotte Tilbury Dreamy Look in a Clutch

Hello Beauties! Sorry I haven't posted for a week, we have been really busy over here in Italy and the internet connection is quite temperamental so it's been hard to get on here and write a full blog post! I hope you all had an amazing and relaxing Christmas with good food and even better company! We had a really lovely but full on day here, we went out for Christmas lunch which turned out to be about a million different courses; Italians love to feed you! We then went back to the house and a lot of Chris's family came over for games and even more food. I've managed to completely lose my voice which I thought was to do with my over-enthusiastic passion to win Pictionary, but has actually turned out to be a horrendous cold :( Anyway, I was also thoroughly, thoroughly spoiled this year and thought I'd share a few pictures of what makeup I got from Santa (Chris) this year! 

Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Muse Palette

Me and Chris did presents slightly different this year and we went out shopping for them together instead of wrapping them up. Because we were coming out to Italy, we knew we wouldn't be able to bring everything in the bag so we did it this way and incorporated our Christmas shopping into a lovely day out in London. First stop for me is always Charlotte Tilbury in Covent Garden, I just love getting CT stuff for presents because I don't always buy it for myself so they're more special. I really wanted the Legendary Muse Palette but it had completely sold out! After trekking to Oxford Street to find out it had completely sold out everywhere there as well, Chris said I could get the Dreamy Look in a Clutch gift set with it in!! I am soooo happy with it as I also really wanted to try Secret Salma lipstick and it comes with the gift set.

Charlotte Tilbury Secret Salma Lipstick

The palette is so beautiful and it definitely isn't like any other shades I have in my collection. It's almost too pretty to use! I cannot wait to use it as all of the pictures I've seen of people doing the 'Dreamy Look' are absolutely stunning. The Secret Salma lipstick is completely different to any other colours I have, it looks so gorgeous! The gift set also comes with a mini Legendary Lashes mascara, a mini lip liner in Bitten Kiss, a mini eyeliner in Bedroom Black and a free little USB stick that looks like the CT lipsticks! I am so so excited to start using this, and I'll do another blog post with swatches and looks etc soon. 

Charlotte Tilbury Portobello Girl Lip Gloss and Pillow Talk Lip Liner

I also got a lip gloss from Charlotte Tilbury in Portobello Girl, and a Lip Cheat lip liner in Pillow Talk. I have wanted the lipgloss for ages and everyone raves about Pillow Talk so I am really looking forward to using this. I already have a CT lip liner in Pink Venus and the formula is so smooth, I love using it so I'm hoping for the same from this one! 

MAC Kinda Sexy Lipstick

Lastly I got a new MAC Lipstick in Kinda Sexy. I mentioned in my MAC Lipstick Haul post that I really wanted to try this one next and I am so happy to have this in my collection. It definitely has a more peachy/orangey colour on me which is totally different than my usual pinks but I really like it when it's on. 

So that's it for make-up presents this year! I was so lucky this year and got so many other lovely bits from Chris and his family. I also have some more presents to open when we get home to my mum's later this week! (Lucky me!) All of this was topped off by a really special day that was full of fun and good food, and I felt really lucky to be able to spend it with such a lovely family. 

What did you all get for Christmas? I hope Santa was good to you this year ;)

xoxo

  11. Absolutely love these bits from CT, especially that ethereal looking eye palette. Im hoping that comes back in stock as I have on a wishlist. The Selma darker pink lippy is something I may try, I have too many pale pinks!

    1. I think it will come back into stock, I know the clutch was limited edition but I don't think the palette on it's own was LE so hopefully it will come back soon! I was actually really surprised by the lipstick, I didn't apply it really heavily I sort of put some on and then patted it with my finger, but it wasn't anywhere near as dark as I thought it was going to be! Will take getting used to but I really like it! You're a girl after my own heart - pale pinks forever! xx

  12. Wow, you got a lot of stuff from CT! Lucky you!
