Favourites and xmas gifts

So I havent blogged since about september :( alot changed and I went back to uni and have alot of work to do, so I kind of lost interest for a while, I have been still keeping up with all your blogs though. Iv had the urge to do a post for a while now and have a free evening so here it is :)

I thought I would start with showing you some of the products which I love right now.
First is Benefit Coralista blusher which I won in a blog giveaway a few month ago and I absolutely love it!! I will definatly be buying it again when it runs out, although I have been using it daily and I still have loads left so hopefully that wont be any time soon!
I also love the 17 Instant glow bronzing powder in light, I have been using this for atleast 6 month and its definatly the best bronzer for me and its pretty cheap at about £3.50 in boots so Im really happy with it!

I tend to use my E.L.F powder brush most with my face products, if not then I use one of my elizabeth arden kabuki brushes.

Next, are 2 lip products that I have been using alot, on the left is No7 sheer temptation lipstick in Smoulder 30, It looks really red but it is very sheer and just gives a lovely colour to the lips without looking to drastic and its perfect for everyday or for a night out! On the right is an e.l.f mineral lipstick which cost me £3.50 in nicely nude, i was expecting a nude lipstick when i ordered this, but its more pink and im glad as I love it, just right for wearing anytime.

Here are 2 collection 2000 mascaras I use at the moment, the waterproof volume sensation in black which I have been using since august and the longer lash false lash effect mascara in ultra black which I have been using a few weeks! both of these were about £3 each and they are amazing for the price. Before buying these I was using the max factor false lash effect mascara which was really good but I definatly prefer these 2 for the price as they work just as well and I would definatly recommend them!

Also thought I would show you a few beauty bits I got for xmas, I didnt get much this year as there is alot going on as my grandma is very ill in hospital so everyones been to preoccupied for xmas so I was pleased to just get a few bits my mum had managed to pick up as I wasnt expecting anything :)
She got me the no7 colour collection which comes with a make up bag, purse, mirror. eyeshadows in comet, vivid violet, midnight blue, twilight, light shade and organza, lipstick in cameo, sheer temptation lipstick in entice. Translucent face powder, high lights illuminating powder in island glow, and natural blushes in petal and soft damson.
Its really lovely and the pallettes have special holes in the tops so they can fit in the make up bag like a folder!

She also got me a soap and glory gift set which includes the flirtigo spray on body moisturising mist which smells gorgeous!!, long distance shimmer and a sexy motherpucker lipgloss in a lovely pink which Im yet to use.

Lastly here is my dress for new years eve, I got it for £10 in the sale at Internationale today, Itas quite short so Im debating wearing tights but Ill see how cold it is tomorrow. Im not sure what to do with my make up or hair yet, any ideas about what will go well with the dress would be great :)

Im not sure on my shoes yet either, I dont want to go really high as there is still alot of snow and ice around where I live and Im pretty sure snow, ice and platforms dont mix very well, especially not when your drunk! I got these boots in the sales at New look on boxing day, they were reduced from £50 to £25 and I am considering wearing them with the dress, but Im not sure if they match very well :/

Sorry for the long rambling post, hope everyone had a great christmas and enjoys the new year!
