Blogmas Day 21 | Party Glam with Seventeen Cosmetics

It's never been more important than during the festive season to get yourself all dolled up - maybe you're heading to your works Christmas do, or a family party, or even if you're going out for Christmas Day? You'll be wearing your best dress, a pair of killer high heels and some sparkly accessories... And one of the most important things - your makeup! That's where these gorgeous products from Seventeen cosmetics come into play to get you looking Party Glam! 
Available in a whopping 15 shades, you'll be sure to find the right colour for you in this range of new lipsticks! I have two beautiful party season shades in the form of "Rule Breaker" a deep berry shade, and "Date Night"a true red! Both are right on trend at the moment, and I've already worn the berry shade a couple of times! They contain Shea Butter to nourish and moisturise your lips during these cold winter months. They are long-wearing, containing lip stain, and I've found that they easily last around 6-8 hours! They are really easy to apply and look great for hours! 

Seventeen Define & Conquer Contour Kit | £5.99

I've been looking to purchase a contouring kit for quite a while now so this one couldn't have come at a better time! I cannot believe how well priced this is at just £5.99! The kit comes in its own handy compact with mirror on the inside, along with a card insert with a quick "how to" to make the best use of the kit! This is available in two shade choices "Light" and "Medium" and each come with a light shade for illuminating, and a darker shade for defining and contouring. This little kit will be sure to give you a perfected chiseled look this Christmas!

Seventeen Brows That Brow Kit | £5.99

They do say that the brows are the most important accessory for your face. So you should definitely groom and define your brows! This handy little kit will make easy use of that, as it contains everything you need to give your friends some serious brow envy! Again this kit comes in its own handy compact with an internal mirror and a "how to" card. Inside there are 3 pans; fixing gel, a brow coloured powder, and a light champagne shade to highlight and emphasise the shape of your brows! There are also a brow pencil and an applicator brush inside! The only criticism I have is that there only appears to be one shade choice in the brow kit. 

Seventeen Jewel Heist Eye Palette | £5.99

Absolutely love the outer case on this one! The jewelled outer case really gives it a glamorous look - perfect to pop in your clutch bag for touch ups throughout the night. The circular compact has an internal mirror, and contains 4 eyeshadow pans. I received the palette called Jewel Heist, and it contains a gorgeous topaz blue, a muted dusky pink/beige, a shimmering champagne shade, and finally a deep true black for definition along the lash line I'm assuming? Anyway this palette will definitely get its use, even if the blue will be worn rarely! 

The gorgeous pair of limited edition nail polishes are part of Seventeen's jewel range, of which they are suitably named "Sapphire" and "Garnet" Each polish is a wonderful deep shade which applies easily and streak-free to provide a high shine gel like finish without paying salon prices! 

Last, but certainly not least are these life saver glitter nail tips in black glitter. Now for the lazy ones amongst us, these are ideal to pair with the gel colour nail varnishes to give your nails a bit of extra sparkle without any hassle.

Blogmas Day 20 | "Unwrapped" The Soap and Glory The Next Big Thing Gift Box By Hattie Stewart

I wrote about this gorgeous Soap and Glory Christmas gift set in a blog post a few days back, where I informed you all (not that you didn't already know and were already eagerly awaiting the release) that the Soap and Glory "The Next Big Thing" Gift box was on offer as Boots Star Gift of the week, and was reduced from £60 to £29! Bargain!

Anyway my mom asked me what I would like for Christmas this year, and this was literally the only thing I could think of, as I can't normally afford to buy the Soap and Glory products throughout the year, so it will be a nice treat to try these after Christmas! So yes, I headed over to Boots to grab one of the last few left on the shelves on Thursday this week as my Mom wasn't able to get to the shops in time. Naturally I snapped a few pics of the gift set before I had to give it to my mom to wrap up for Christmas lol ;)

The beautifully packaged gift set from Soap & Glory has been designed/illustrated by Hattie Stewart, and contains a whopping TEN FULL SIZED PRODUCTS! Meaning you'll be hard pushed to find another set of this size for this price! This usually is priced at £60, but I managed to grab it for just £29! I have totted up the values of the products if bought individually and they are actually worth £76. So a really great deal!

Here's a quick breakdown of the products included:

HAND DREAM™ Super Cream 100ml
ORANGEASM™ Body Wash 500ml
BUTTER YOURSELF™ Moisture Lotion 500ml
HEEL GENIUS™ Foot Cream 125ml
SUGAR CRUSH™ Body Scrub 300ml
WHIPPED CLEAN™ Shower Butter 250ml
SEXY MOTHER PUCKER™ Lip Lacquer in Charm Offensive 7ml
THICK & FAST™ Super Volume Mascara 10ml
OFF YOUR FACE™ 3 in 1 Daily Purifying Cloths (25 cloths)

I honestly cannot wait to get my hands on this (to keep) on Christmas Day! And I'm sure that any of you who have this gift set already are really enjoying it! Let me know which is your favourite product? Or if there's something you wish had been included in the gift box?

Blogmas Day 19 | StyleLux Blackhead Killer Gift Box

StyleLux Blackhead Killer Gift Box | £89.00

A little while back I reviewed the StyleLux Blackhead Killer Peel Off Face Masks and from my review you could tell that I really liked the product and would definitely recommend. So when Stylelux offered me the opportunity to review their latest release... the Blackhead Killer Gift Box I couldn't refuse! 

The Blackhead Killer Gift Box is a little on the pricey side at £89.00 so it's definitely more of a luxury beauty buy, but it contains 3 excellent quality products; 

Blackhead Killer Facial Cleanser this renewing cleanser is designed to wash away impurities that clog up your pores and prevents blackheads from forming. It is suitable for all skin types and leaves your skin feeling refreshed, cleansed and soft/smooth. It also prepares your skin for the rest of the treatments in the gift set. 

The Blackhead Killer as I already mentioned I've written a full review on this face mask which you can check out here if you like? But a quick rundown is that it is a revolutionary product in the form of a thick black gel, which you apply to your face, leave to dry and then peel off afterwards. In doing so you remove blackheads, impurities and excess oil in minutes! Leaving your skin super soft and also prevents blackheads in the future.
The Blackhead Killer Face Moisturizer This is the ideal moisturiser to finish off the treatment as it hydrates your skin and closes your pores. It also reduces redness and irritation, which is very important because when I tried the face mask I did find that the peel off mask irritated my skin a little. 
Anyway, this is a fantastic kit, and ideal for anyone who suffers with blackheads, or even as a luxury skin treatment for the beauty lovers in your life! In all honesty, it really does work, and if it works then 99% of the time it's worth paying a little more!
