You can consider this a bit of a haul I guess; a pile of products I received for Christmas and recently purchased for myself. My face has been pretty bare lately and it’s been a solid few weeks since I’ve opened the makeup drawers, so it’s time to look into these new products and get excited for some new things to play with.
Let’s start with the most exciting, the Kat Von D Shade & Light Eye Contour Palette. As you may or may not know, this little baby has been on my wish list for about two years now. My mother-in-law must be a frequent reader since she absolutely nailed it this Christmas. This package was ripped open with a squeal of joy! I can’t wait to give this a go and test out all the different looks that you can create with this palette. Following along in the eye category is the Tarte Tarteist Clay Paint Liner and brush. A friend of mine gave me an awesome Tarte set for Christmas that included this guy, which I had previously been dying to try out. I’ve already given it a go once, but that had a disastrous outcome. YouTube is going to have to help me out with this one cause it’s just not working, but I know it can be fabulous. And last but not least for the eyes, the amazing Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara which I’ve used before in the past, but am so happy to have back in my life.
Then on to two fabulous highlights (I’ve really upped my highlight game recently). First we have the Clinique Chubby Stick Sculpting Highlighter for an iridescent highlight. Besides swatching this I haven’t tried it yet, but I’ve heard amazing things. And then most exciting of it all, the Becca x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop! If you haven’t heard of this then you’re living under a rock. Expect a full review of this coming soon.
Then we have the Beauty Blender. I’m not sure why or how I’ve never picked one of these up in the past, but boy am I glad I’ve done so now. I’ve had cheaper versions of this blending sponge in the past but when people say the Original Beauty Blender is best, they’re right. Such a smooth, flawless finish. I’ve used it twice and can’t wait to make it a daily habit. Then finally we have another amazing Christmas gift, the Too Faced Melted Berry Liquified Long Wear Lipstick. My two friends and I do a makeup exchange each Christmas and this was a perfect shade picked out for me! Can’t wait to take it out on the town!
Do you have any new products you’re excited to try? Have you tried any of these? Share you thoughts friends!
Love the Shade and Light palette and Champagne Pop :) I really want to try out the Beauty Blender
I love my tarteist liner! I have hooded heavily hooded eyes and I cry easily… That being said this stuff doesn’t budge! (Once it dries that is) In comparison to my previously holy grail gel liner (essence gel pot liner, I forgot the official name but it’s around 3.99 at shoppers drug mart) it’s a lot creamier and easier to get sharp lines with. I’ve only had troubles applying it when my eye has been really twitchy. My only gripe with the packaging is that I often squeeze too much out and it basically farts product on me making a mess. Think it’s fantastic overall though! Good luck and enjoy! :)

I love Beauty Blender! Few days back I wrote a little review about it while also comparing BB with Real Techniques sponge. You might want to check that out 😉 Also it would be great if you followed me back so we could support each other on this road of blogging 😊👌
The beauty blender is THE BOMB.COM !!! I literally can’t do my makeup without it! Also, the Clinique highlighter is so gorgeous I’m obsessed! Let me know how you like the KVD eye palette, I’m thinking about getting it:)
