Fellas listen up: Nothing says ‘I am crazy about you’ better than a perfume jewel box such as this one (unless you want to spend more and happen to have a Bugatti parked up ready for Christmas morning). When it comes to perfume, Dior is one of my favourite brands. They just get it spot on, every time. Gift it to me in a jewel box and I’m literally going to need peeling off the ceiling. For anyone who isn’t familiar with this scent, it brings forth a delicate explosion of ylang-ylang, Damascus rose, Indian jasmine and Indian tuberose. All who breathe in this hypnotic aroma become intoxicated with its beauty. A definite winner.

Look Fantastic’s Beauty Advent Calendar 2019 Is On Sale Now (Screams)

Hey Lovelies!

When it comes to beauty, this has to be my favourite time of year. The Look Fantastic’s Beauty Advent Calendar 2019 is on sale now (screams). Following a long-anticipated wait, the day arrived and this Calendar arrived on my doorstep. Not that I was happy – but seriously, at that moment I could have married the postie. Their calendar does not disappoint. Brimming with gorgeous beauty gems, the Look Fantastic’s Beauty Advent Calendar is priced at £79 and worth a total of £420! How can you go wrong?

If there is one splurge to make this year, I would highly recommend buying the calendar. Look Fantastic have clearly given this calendar much thought, providing all the brands on our must-buy wish list! Check out my review of all the beauty items contained in this incredible Godsend. In order to give each product the attention they deserve, I have split the review into 8 pieces. This article looks at the beauty gifts from #1-3. Okay, get ready to fall in love! You can buy the Beauty Advent Calendar here.

1.Morphe 9A Always Golden Eye Shadow Palette, Retail: £12, www.lookfantastic.com

If there is one look that never fails on a date, it’s the smoky eye. One reason Morphe is a hero makeup brand is their stand-out eye shadow palettes. They always get it right on the mark. For daytime usage, I turn to neutrals. Mixing them up, I can create the necessary alert, yet subtly appealing image that works. In the evening this palette’s sexy, smoky eye colour effects are just the ticket. Morphe’s highly-pigmented and silky soft eye shadow palette combine both matte and delicate shimmery hues, that are too good to miss. Look fantastic’s choices are Amazing.

2.Living Proof Perfect Hair Day (PhD) 5-in-1 Styling Treatment (30ml). Retail price: £9 (60ml), www.lookfantastic.com

Created by world-renowned experts and bio-tech scientists (not quite sure what the job of a biotech scientist entails, but it sounds like these people would know their stuff). Basically, the components of their magical potion come from a biotech and medical angle – and in my opinion they are sheer genius. I can only go on the effect a product has on my hair and whether it delivers good results. The Living Proof has to be one of my top 3 haircare brands. If you are looking for an awesome multi-tasker – this has to be at the top of the list. A little of this product offers a targeted treatment by lovingly conditioning and strengthening your locks. I say ‘lovingly’ as when you apply the treatment you will feel so pampered, it’s as if Living Proof literally cares for your hair! This haircare treatment styles your hair like no other. If it were a fella, it would be ‘the ONE’. Polished and smooth? I think so!

3.Caudalie Vinopure Clear Skin Purifying Toner (50ml) Retail: £18 (200ml) www.lookfantastic.com

Door #3 of Look Fantastic’s calendar reveals the go-to toner for those with combination skin. Caudalie is a must-have brand for anyone’s bathroom cabinet. Their toner feels practically weightless and combines organic essential oils that effectively remove all impurities from the skin. Moreover, salicylic acid is included to further dissolve any debris within the pores, ensuring acne and spots are kept at bay, and even aids in smoothing the skin!  For optimal results use both morning and night. This is yet another product I seriously could not be without!

Check out my review of Look Fantastic’s priceless gems hidden behind doors 4-8 tomorrow.

Win, win.

Last-Minute Beauty Stocking Fillers For Under £40

Hey Lovelies!

Well, it’s just over a week until Santa tackles the chimney (excuse me while I nip outside to scream in sheer panic). If like me, you’ve almost run out of cash and at present the stockings don’t exactly look brimming, read on. Here are some amazing beauty stocking filler gifts (at such a good price you can even buy 2 of each and keep one for yourself). #Hohoho!

1.Benefit Benetint Lip And Cheek COlor, £21.67 (Saving £3.83 Online Only), boots.com

For beauty lovers of all ages, check out this amazing stocking filler gift. Whether the colour in your lips is beginning to fade and you want to inject a boost of beautiful colour for Christmas or are simply after a key colour trend to see you through party season, Benefit’s Benetint is the perfect answer.

My advice – don’t think of this as a lipstick per se when applying to your lips. When I first tried this I simply brushed it on – big mistake. What you need to actually do is brush a few drops on and blend, repeating the process until you achieve the desired colour. The results are a gorgeous rosy glow that truly lasts. LOVE!

2.L’Oreal Double Extension Beauty Tubes Mascara, £11.99, Superdrug

Do you know someone who loves the extra-long lash look? Instead of buying more falsies (that are bound to hang off by their third cocktail) why not treat them to the next best thing? L’Oreal’s Double Extension Mascara offers a two-step system comprising of a conditioning base coat  (loaded with Ceramide R and containing fibres), of which ensures a luscious lengthening effect. The other side gives your lashes that much sought-after deep colour. This is one of my favourite mascaras – no clumping, smudging or mess – just stunning lashes!

3.Urban Decay All Nighter Setting Spray Duo Gift Set, £36 (Worth £48), feelunique.com

If you read my recent article on the best setting sprays, you will know Urban Decay is one of my most treasured brands.  Their innovative formula combines Proprietary Temperature Control Technology that will prevent your makeup (and you) from going into meltdown mode. This super long-lasting spray means that you can stop worrying about the whether or not your makeup still looks amazing (then going to the bathroom, looking aghast at your reflection and spending the following 20 minutes trying to work out if the hot guy who smiled at you might actually have been smiling for the wrong reason). With Urban Decay’s magic All Nighter you can simply get on with enjoying the evening and know that everyone will be smiling at you for the right reasons!

Have an amazing Christmas! xx
