What I got for Christmas 2013!

Hey everyone, I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas, I definitely did and I got so so spoilt! For Christmas I usually make a list of things I would like and I defiantly got a couple of surprises I wasn't expecting in the slightest! 

I'm not trying to brag about anything I got, I watch so many videos of what people get for Christmas and thought I would blog about what I got for those who are interested. I'm not going to show everything that I got recieved, I'm going to show my makeup products and tell you about a few other things I got. I am so grateful for all the presents I received and I thank everyone so so much. 

Firstly I got the new iPad air! Ahhh! I was so excited when I opened this as I had no idea that I was getting one, so obviously I was so shocked and surprised. Also I asked for a Urban Decay Naked 2 palette and I started opening one of my presents which was wrapped in bubble wrap, I saw the pink packaging through the bubble wrap and literally started crying before I could finish opening it, it was a Naked 3 palette, I felt like the luckiest person ever! They only got released days before Christmas and my mam some how managed to get me one! They're definitely my two favourite presents and so unexpected! 


I also received a MAC palette and lipstick, I asked for Vanilla and Cranberry as I've seen them used in tutorials and they're just so amazing so I was so lucky to receive them and All a The Glitters which I wasn't expecting but I love them all and they're all so pigmented and go lovely with any of he shades from the Naked 3! I also wrote a few MAC lipsticks on my list as I couldn't decide which one I wanted the most, so I got Up The Amp which is a beautiful purple, it's so moisturising and lasts so long on the lips. 


I received some makeup brushes and makeup from ELF (eyeslipsface) which is an amazing makeup company which only has an online store, I recieved a tinted moisturiser, bronzer & blush in St.Lucia, a blush in the shade Fushia Fusion, a cream blush in Showstopper and two eye shadows in shades, Amythest and Purple Passion. I've actually worn the cream blush underneath my MAC lipstick which really brings out the colour and it's amazing. 

These are a few of the presents I recieved from my best friend, they're all Revlon, the lipstick is Black Cherry, the blusher is Flushed Rougissant and the butter stain in shade Romantic Romantique. 

From my grandma and grandad I recieved this Benefit Primed For Lovin' tin, it's amazing value for money and it has some of my favourite makeup products in! I asked for a new porefessional and they're real mascara but recieved this tin which I was so pleased with, it's amazing so it also includes a full sized high beam highlighter, I've wanted to try this for ages but never really thought about buying it for myself so I am so happy this came in the tin, I also recieved a mini sugar bomb lipgloss in it and I'm not a massive fan of lipgloss but this one is amazing and I may have to purchase a full size when I've finished this one! I also got a Benefit makeover which I am soooo excited about, it'd in the last week of January and I can't wait, I also recieved a MAC makeover for my birthday so I'm so excited to have them both! 

I also recieved from my auntie and uncle the Real Techniques Sam's favourite picks set, it included 6 brushes which were the multi task brush, buffing brush which is amazing for foundation, the setting brush, fine liner brush, pointed foundation brush and the essential crease brush. This set is absolutely amazing, I'm so happy I recieved it as I've been wanting to try these brushes for so so long! 


 Also from my mam and dad I got some ELF brushes from the Studio line, I got the complexion brush, fan brush, angled eyeliner brush which is absolutely amazing my eyeliner looks so much better since I started using this to apply a gel eyeliner and helps so much to wing out the liner, also the blush brush and angled contour brush. I love them all and they're such amazing value for how much they are as they're all about £3.50 each, they're so soft and easy to wash too. 

I am so grateful for all my presents and love everyone so so much! Comment down below what you got for Christmas as I'd love to know!
