I’m just writing a quick post to wish all Beauty Angel readers a really Happy Christmas. I hope you have a lovely time filled with family, friends, food and fun. I’m going to take a break from blogging until the new year to spend some quality time with my nearest and dearest and to get thinking on lots of posts for 2015. Thanks for following throughout the year and I hope 2015 will bring everything you wish for!
Yay, I can’t believe that it’s time to post this! Way back in October the very patient and organised Aisling over at Total Makeup Addict offered to organise Secret Santa among all us Irish Beauty Bloggers. I missed taking part last year because I was away but I was very excited to take part this year. You have a €20 budget to buy a gift and send it to the blogger Aisling randomly chooses for you. I really agonised over buying my gift, I spent ages stalking my recipient Roisin from The Fashionista Observer, so pop over to her page if you want to see what I picked! My Secret Santa was the lovely Ruby Laine from Ruby Laine Makeup, here’s what she picked for me…
I was tagged by the lovely AJ over at AJ Makeup to do this tag post. This is where I share the beauty products that I recommend the most. I’ve had a good think about all of the products that I can’t run out of and would be lost without. It’s taken me a bit of time but I have whittled it down to the six products I recommend the most.
I bought the latest Look Fantastic beauty box because it contained three products I’ve always wanted to try but that are a little bit pricey to buy alone. The box here contained minis of the famous Glam Glow mask, Eve Lom Cleanser and this Hand Chemistry Intense Youth Complex hand cream. I’ve wanted to try this cream since I saw British Beauty Blogger herself rave about it.
It’s been ages since I’ve written a nail post! I have my work Christmas Party this week so I like to do a bit of festive nail art. I used lots of tape and glitter polishes from The New Black and OPI to get the look below. I also used star nail charms that I got in Penneys. Loving the Penneys nail range at the moment. This took me about an hour to do so it does take a bit of patience! What do you think? Do you have the patience for nail art?
One of the most popular posts on my blog is my review of the Sleek Face Form palette here. People obviously can’t get enough of the contouring marvel. You might also have noticed that I am recently very obsessed with new brand on the block Makeup Revolution, some of their products have become firm favourites of mine. Well you might be interested to know that Makeup Revolution recently released a palette to give Face Form a run for its money.
It’s rare for me to find a body product that is something a bit different. There is only so much you can do with body moisturisers, serums and exfoliators but this product is different and a bit cool. I got this Mio Double Buff Dual Action Enzyme Exfoliator recently in the British Beauty Blogger Dream Box 2 here. The word enzyme immediately won me over as I’m a big fan of an enzyme face mask.
It’s December now so Christmas is only around the corner! If you’re still hunting down the perfect Christmas presents you can check out all my beauty gift guides so far here. In this post I’m looking at some of the most luxurious Christmas gifts out there that a girl could only dream about getting under the Christmas tree. But it doesn’t hurt to dream!
British Beauty Blogger Jane Cunningham recently released her fourth beauty box. The boxes always contain some of Jane’s favourite products and I have found some new gems in them. You can read my summary of all the previous boxes here. So as you can see I was very excited for the latest box to arrive and here it is!
