The Beauty Stars of 2012!

Happy New Years Eve guys! This year has been a great year in terms of blogging, I've learnt so much and met so many amazing people. Thank you to each and every one of you who has visited, commented and even followed my blog - It means the world to me that so many of you have joined me on this journey.

Since It's the last day of the year I felt it appropriate to look back on a year of beauty products. I wish I would have something clever with this post like '12 for 2012' and so on, but I literally made a grab for everything I've raved about over the past year and continue to love now. There isnt really any facial skincare/hair because my routines have changed so much although if I could pick one thing from those categories it would be without a doubt Superdrugs own hot cloth cleanser.

Maybelline Dream Fresh BB Cream (£7.99/30ml)
Although I haven't used this since the winter hit, I have loved the amazing glow this has given me over the summer months and will continue to use it when my skin is clearer - My skin is seriously suffering from the colder months, but as soon as they're over I'll be whipping this stuff out. Its hard to believe it costs the same as an lip butter!

Maybelline Dream Matte Powder (£7.19/9g)
You can probably tell by the broken lid and fact that I've hit plan that I use this quite a lot. I've never really bothered with powders until I tried this and just find that it sets my make up without adding any more colour and is perfect for everyday use.

Look Beauty Make Me Blush in Flush (£8.00/8.6g)
Before this year I was so scared of the thought of blushers, Now I own a little collection with this shade being my favourite. It's just such a lovely subtle shade and I love the packaging!

Benefit Sunbeam (£18.50/13ml)
I didn't expect to love this half as much as I do, It just gives the prettiest natural highlight! I really want to pick up MeMeMe's version to see how it compares.

Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer (£4.19)
I recently went through a stage of not owning this - and let me tell you NOTHING compares! I don't think I'll be going without anytime soon and will continue to buy.

Witch Anti Blemish Skin Clearing Primer (£6.99/30ml)
Although recently I've been putting other primers to the test, for the best part of 2012 this is all I used - making my way through quite a few bottles. If you have blemish prone skin its worth a try, after all its sitting here above all the other primers I've tried including Benefit.
Revlon Colorburst Lipgloss (£7.99)
 Since discovering more lip products I haven't bothered much with lip glosses, although this one from Revlon is just perfect. Not only does it offer longer lasting colour than most lipglosses , you also don't get that awkward stickiness, so its a winner in my book!

Rimmel Kate Matte Lipstick (£5.49)
This has to be my favourite lipstick ever! Its just a perfect shade, not quite nude but at the same time not too much. I always get a load of complements when wearing it and continue doing  so in 2013.

Nivea Milk & Honey (£1.99)
 I've tried lip balms that were so much more expensive than this one, but no where as near as good. I honestly think this is one of the best on the highstreet It just leaves my lips feeling so soft!
 I picked this up for £1 earlier in the year and was amazed by the great job it does, I've barely touched my loreal one since as this does such a great job at making my lashes stand out.

MUA Palettes (£4.00)
 Generally the haven and Earth palette is the one I use most, although MUA have some other fantastic offerings. I currently own four of these and love them all. Not only are they cheap as chips they're actually great quality. 

MUA Eye Primer (£2.50)
 This stuff is amazing! You can face it with anything the elements decides to throw at you and your eyeshadow is pretty much granted to stay in place. At just £2.50 I will buy over and over again!

 I'm useless with eyeliner, but these felt liners have allowed me to wear liner without applying and reapplying for hours. This ones so easy to use allows you to get a thin line which can be built upon if you wish.
Daily brush cleaner (£3.75/50ml)
   Let me start by saying I paid less for 250ml of product, so I'm really disappointed with ELF on that one. But that said this does a great job at cleaning and has lasted me forever.

Avon Angled Brush (£6.00)
 I use this to apply my blush and think it does an amazing job, Avon always have an amazing deal on so if you look out you can probably get this half price.

EcoTools Blush Brush (£7.99)
 I use this to apply my powder, Its really soft and applies great.

Soap and Glory Clean on Me (£5.50/500ml)
 I think this smells amazing, and is worth every penny. I love the fact that this comes with a pump too!

Soap and Glory Sugar Crush Body Scrub (£8.00/300ml)
 I think all Soap and Glory body scrubs in general are amazing so had to include on in this post - This is the one I'm currently using which smells great and leaves skin feeling so smooth.

The Body Shop Coconut Body Butter (£13.00/200ml)
 I love all Body Shop Body Butters but feel the Coconut one is just that bit nicer, Its a great thick product with an amazing scent!

So there you have it, my stars of 2012! What products have you been loving this year?

December Favourites!

Can you believe its the last monthly favourites of the year already? I've learnt so much since beginning these posts in January - Looking at the favourites label really reflects that too. All of these products are things I've discovered/rediscovered over the past week or so - but I love each and every one of them! So without any further rambling here are this months favourites:

This foundation was a gift from my Mum on Christmas day, while I could have done with a lighter shade this foundation is really bendable so its easy to make work. Expect a full post soon because I really like it!

I've been using this in the morning before applying my make up. It smells lovely and leaves the skin feeling great, not sure I'd spend £35 on it though, but for now its a nice treat.

I finished a tube of this ages ago, and just didn't bother buying again. But noting seemed to match how amazing this is, I didn't realise how much I loved it until I got it Christmas day and since then I haven't put it down. 

I got this, a day cream, cleanser and toner all for just £8 in the sales. My only regret is not stocking up! I included the night cream as so far its  my favourite and leaves my skin feeling so so soft!

This stuff smells great  and leaves my skin feeling amazing - Personally I feel Soap & Glory offer some of the best body scrubs and have a few to get through after Christmas and sale shopping!

In the past I've had a few mini bottles of this although this is my first full sized bottle and I'm loving it! I also got another shower gel from Soap & Glory in the sales so look forward to trying that too.

If you havent guessed it I'm blonde, so thought I'd pick a set of these up for £6 on boxing day. I automatically went back for a back up after trying them. They just leave my hair feeling so soft, light and clean. Even two days after washing my hair looks clean, when normally I'd be ripping out the dry shampoo. Even my mum commented that my hair looks blonder - After just one use!

Teamed with the Shampoo and Conditioner my hair feels great! I managed to pick up this with a salt spray,  hairspray and cleansing shampoo in a lovely bag for just £9 - Bargain! 

What products are you loving this month?!

December Empties

I'm posting both my Empties and favourites posts both a day earlier this month, So I can fit another post in for New Years Eve which I'm pretty excited about! With all the excitement of Christmas I cant say I have too many empties to share with you guys this time around, although I still have nine things to talk about.

I really like this product, and enjoyed using it. Its just a hassle which I really don't need to order it online. I'd much rather something I could pick up on the highstreet
I think this is great for the price and seems to last forever. I will pick up again when my current scrub runs out! 
I brought this after trying a tube of the product and falling in love. I just think its a great all round product with loads of uses, plus I loved the limited addition packaging on mine!

I started using this when my body butter run out, It did a lovely job I just prefer the texture body butters have so wont be buying again.
This is around my third bottle of this stuff, but lately I've been trying other primers - I'll probably end up going back to this!
Think this is great for £1.99, I just got another in a Nivea set for Christmas so look forward to using it again!
I've started using a Jemma Kidd highlighting concealer but I honestly missed this, It brightens the eye area without being cakey and is just a great  little product.
If I had £79 to waste it wouldnt be on  this! Give me S&G's handfood any day! 

What products have you guys finished this month?

December 2012 GlossyBox

As a lot of you probably know from my past few posts, my Mum buys me beauty boxes every December to open Christmas day. This year I was lucky enough to receive two, including this Glossy box. So without any further rambling, Here's what I got in my box:

Rituals Magic Touch Cherry Blossom & Rice Milk (£5/70ml)

I really like Rituals so was happy to see this body cream included in this months, It smells lovely and I cant wait to use it.
It surprises me that this is so close to the £10 mark, It doesn't look like an expensive product! I really like the shade given to me and was really pleased with the fast drying time when I tested it on a nail. Maybe you'll see this in a NOTD post soon.
I was gutted I didn't get a palette from Sleek, although this is a lovely Christmasy colour. A bit to much for me though.
This isn't a scent I'd normally go for, although I've mentioned before that I like these little samples as there handy for your bag.

Bonus GlossyBox Blusher (Glossy Rosewood) 

This is a lovely shade - I haven't used it yet but I've heard good things from many other bloggers. 

Argentum Apothecary (£147/70ml)

To be honest, I haven't really counted this as a product since two little packets were in a separate envelope. The difference between mine and a lot of other boxes is that they got  the conditioning whipped cream instead. I don't understand why I was lumped with anti aging cream despite completing a beauty profile, which included questions on my skin type/age. I guess that's the joy of beauty boxes, It's gone straight to my Mum.

Overall I am please with the body cream and blush, I' also happy I got to try a Sleek lipstick. But this was nothing on last years December box.

December 2012 JolieBox

For the past couple of years I have received a December GlossyBox from my Mum for Christmas, this year I was lucky enough to receive a JolieBox too which I included in my Christmas haul. I think Beauty Boxes make such amazing gift as you generally have no idea of the exact contents until you open the box. Of course there's always a risk of getting a rubbish box, although I'd say it's honestly worth it because I tend to be pleasantly surprised.
I have to be honest, from looking around at other peoples JolieBox's - I wasn't expecting much.They just didn't impress me this month at all, especially for a December box (I saw a few yellow eyeshadows!) Although somehow I managed to get a perfect combination  and really cant wait to put these products to the test!
I'm so pleased to see this product which is perfect for my normal skin! I've been using it since Christmas day before applying my make up and have no complains so far. This alone makes the box worth it as it is full sized, although I do find myself feeling bad for everyone who got a body lotion instead!
I've seen some awful shades of this shimmer powder on other blogs, So I was so happy to see Jadoo. It's a really unique shade so I really look forward to using it and sharing a review with you guys! 
I'm not sure on the price of this one, although it comes from a cheap and cheerful brand so I imagine around the £2. I really like I love products so I look forward to trying this!
I really wanted this blue shade so was so happy to see it! The 7ml sample is great and I look forward to posting a NOTD with it on!
I always find these little samples handy for my bag, although I've had an horrible cold and cant smell too well at the moment so I cant really comment much.
I don't have much to say about this product, I have no interest in buying a hand cream for £79 - Plus I could hardly make that choice based on two little sachets.. 
Again I'm clueless on the price, I wish they'd give them like Glossybox! I'll be passing this on to my mum since I have no use for it.

So there you have it, that's everything in my box - Plus two of my favourite Lindit chocolates! To be honest The last three products really didn't bother me as I was over the moon with the moisturiser, nail polish and eyeshadow I received. Do you guys sub to any beauty boxes?

Boxing Day Haul

I know this is my second haul in two days, but I turn into a little bit of a shopaholic around Christmas. I set my alarm at eight this morning, ready to meet my best friend at 9:30am for the sales - but being her, she woke up at nine and had to meet me there! My first stop was Lush, who actually had no money off in my local store (is it just me that finds this odd?! They had a load of gift sets!) So I gave up on my dreams there and found myself in Boots, where you can always rely on the 50% off sale!
I really wanted some hair stuff so picked up this 'Illuminate gift for blondes' reduced from £12 to £6 which contains a shampoo, conditioner and comb. I also picked up this 'weekend' set from Toni and Guy as I wanted to try the sea slat spray and this kit meant I could get that as well as a shampoo, leave in conditioner, hair spray and two spin pins in a lovely bag for just £9.
Also from boots was this 'Wowed mouth' kit from Soap and glory down to £6 - What I love about this is that it has actual lipstick shades, so If I like one I can go buy it from their normal make up collection. Also half price was this lovely Botanics kit at just £8 - Thats just £2 per item! I cant wait to test this out.
Of course I had to treat myself to a bit of Soap and Glory! And that came in the from of 'Smooth over, Darling' A lovely kit which was reduced from £35, to £17.50! I love the look of everyone of these products and very much look forward to my bath tonight.
Being me I barely brought any clothing items (Although I have ordered a few bits online!) I picked up this lovely blazer reduced to just £10 from £24.99 in New Look. I love the colour of it and am hoping to team it with a black top and skater skirt for New Years Eve since the party I'm going to will be out side. I also picked up these black flats for £5, originally they were £12.99 which I think is silly for plain shoes! Primark even had a bit of a sale (I popped in to get some tights which I forgot to picture!) I picked up this lovely studded bag for £5 which was only £9 originally along with this lovely £2 phone case and £3 fox socks (My only non sale buys of the day!)
 Of course I had to pick up a couple of DVD's so I brought Tower Heist which I thought looked good in the advert along with Unknown since it stars Liam Neeson! Both were just £3 from HMV.
I saved the best till last with this one! I was going to skip Debenhams since I didn't think the sale looked too great this year although I figured I'd have a quick look. I stumbled across this mask Trio gift set which I really wanted although the price still said £29 so I was debating for a while when a really lovely sales woman started to advise me on each mask I finally gave in and got them although they went through the till at just £19.34! Happy doesn't cover it, I'm so pleased to finally own these masks!

So there you have it everything that was humanly possible to carry home in one go today! My arms are literally shaking from carrying so much! Did you guys find any good bargains today?!

Christmas Day Haul!

Since my Mums busying fixing dinner, and the kids are playing with their new toys I figured now was the perfect chance to wish you guys a Merry Christmas and give you a sneak peek of some of the things I was lucky enough to receive from my friends and family (before I end up loosing them!).. I didn't manage to get everything in the picture since I'm already wearing some gifts from my Mum and chocolate lasts around two seconds with me in the room, but above are some of the things I really wanted to show to you guys. Warning - This post is a little bit picture heavy and I've been up since 4am with three very excited children so this post may not make sense!
I'm at that age where no one really knows what to get me so I received quite a few gift cards this year mainly from Boots. I was also lucky enough to get some money to spend in the sales, but I didn't really feel that it was appropriate to add that to the top image. For a couple of years now, my Mum has ordered me a GlossyBox for December, this year I was delighted to see a JolieBox too although I wont show you whats inside just yet (Posts will be up over the next couple of days). My best friend brought me Friends with Benefits on DVD which I got the chance to watch last night and really enjoyed and a family friend got me season five of Gossip Girl! She was actually the one who brought me seasons 1-4 too.
One of my friends brought me this lovely Minnie collection which contains so many cute products and another picked me up Soap and Glory's Might mouth which I was really excited to see since I love lip products almost as much as I love Soap and Glory!
My younger sisters teamed together to pick me up this Nivea lip balm set - Which is perfect for people like me who always have about a hundred lip balms on the go. My Mum also picked me up this Dirty Works set which smells amazing! I know I'll be checking this brand out in the future!
My Mum always likes to pick me up a book for Christmas, this year I got Revived by Cat Patrick and Bitter Blood by Rachel Caine which I look forward to reading. She also gave me a candle to burn since I'm loving them at the moment.
My best friend also picked me up these amazing Where's Wally bottoms from the mens section in Primark and my Mum got me these lovely soft Christmasy pair!
I wasn't lucky enough to get the Best of all Soap and Glory set, although my mum who did practically forced me to take these from her which all happen to be the products I wanted most from the set. She wouldn't take no for an answer, making me one very lucky/grateful girl!
Lastly my lovely Mother picked me up a new foundation to try which I'm liking since trying this morning and a new concealer since mine run out ages ago!

I hope you guys are having a wonderful Christmas day and enjoyed reading this haul, also be sure to leave me any Christmas hauls you have in the comments, I'd love to read them!

Nivea Lip Care Pearly Shine

I've been head to toe in wrapping paper over the past few days, but thought I'd take some time away from that to share this little lip product which I've really been loving lately! My lips are constantly playing up in this weather so I find myself reaching for these balmy type products. I love that this one delivers a lovely sheer hint of colour while keeping my lips really soft! It also has SPF 10 in it, which I think it is great for such a low cost product.
You can pick this up for just £2.29 from Nivea stockists such as Boots.

Last minute gift ideas on a budget..

I know a lot of people have already sorted their Christmas gifts already, but if your a bit like I am most years, you may not have even started! I thought since I have some of my friends presents here all ready to wrap I'd share some ideas for gifts with you in case your clueless about what to get them (warning they're all pretty much make up based)

First up is the Snow white and the Huntsman collection from Diego Dalla Palma which I picked up for a friend, normally I find make up collections a bit hit and miss especially if you're buying for someone else because their always seems to be that one product which you know wont get used. Although everything in this palette just seemed perfect for my friend. The items in this are worth £100+ so its huge saving, especially if you shop around a bit.
Because of the problems I often find in getting gift sets I know my friends will love, I decided I'd make my own make up bag for another friend. Of course when constructing a make up bag for someone else it can be hard knowing what they like, but the above gift is for someone I've known around 7 years which means I have a pretty good idea of the things she enjoys using. I know full well that she loves false lashes and managed to find these ones over at Fragrance direct for just £0.99, along with this 'Hollywood red' lipstick for just £1.99 . I also picked up my favourite eye palette from MUA (£4.00) along with a bag to put all the gifts in (Primark - £2.00). I think for under a tenner, this is a good gift, especially when I know the person receiving it will find a use for all of the products.
Another gift idea I love is making your own 'Glossy Box' - I haven't had a chance to get a box yet but hopefully the above image will give you a better idea. I like the fact that with this one you can add any type of products such as make up, nails, skin, hair and even sweets. I haven't finished collecting products yet,but I think the beauty of this box is that you can fit it to pretty much any budget. Again I found the nail wraps and Essie polish for £1.99 from good old Fragrance direct (I think today's the last shipping date for Christmas if your considering using it yourself), I also picked up this beautiful Artist collection from MUA which hosts a great range of products as well as a lipstick in the shade bare.

 Have you guys got any good gift ideas?

Top Five Christmas Nails Picks!

Since I posted about my Christmas make up picks yesterday, I figured it's only fair I post my nail ones today. I have a real mix of favourite polishes for this time of year so without any further rambling - Here they are:

This pillar box red shade is just perfect for this time of year, I picked it up for just £2 in Glamour magazine and I'm sure I'll get lots of use out of it over the next couple of weeks.

This gives such a lovely effect, so make sure you click the above link if you wanna see it in action. I think slivers are great at this time of year, especially with the added shimmer.

This is probably my most unique pick.. so it's not a red, green or glitter. But the shade just feels 'magical' like Christmas. I don't wear it too much because the bottles tiny and it takes a lot of coats, but maybe I'll make an exception this year!

This polish reminds me of snowflakes and looks great over so many shades, a really great versatile polish for this time of year.

It wouldn't be Christmas without a green polish, this one is lovely and I'm pretty sure you can find it for around a £1 if you look hard enough. 

What shades do you love on your nails at this time of year?

My Top Christmas Make up Picks!

To my surprise, I actually finished most of my Christmas shopping yesterday.. Which is unheard of for me, considering most years I wait until Christmas Eve! Since I'm in a festive mood, I figured this would be a good time to share my make up picks for this time of year!

I love this palette so much I picked it up as part of my best friends gift yesterday, Its filled with lots of shimmery shades making it perfect for this time of  the year! For just  £4 I recommend everyone try at least one of these palettes from MUA - You really cant go wrong! 

At this time of year skin can look a little dull, which is why a highlighter is perfect for adding back that glow.. At just a pound this is perfect!

This is my least budget friendly product in my picks..but I love it! Alternatively I know Look Beauty offer a similar product at a more budget friendly price so it may be worth checking that out if you like the concept behind this product
I actually got this last Christmas and it's the reddest colour I own (Bottom on the above image). It's not something i'd wear daily but a shade that I have really come to love. I cant wait for the excuse of Christmas day to wear it!

I actually think these products are really over looked, They're great for  adding a sheer wash of colour and work great as a lipbalm. Pictured above Pink Peach, I think this will make the perfect back up for if it comes to the big day and my lips happen to be suffering from the cold weather!

What do you like wearing at this time of year?

The Christmas Tag!

What's your favorite thing about Christmas?
The food! Don't get me wrong the 'togetherness' on Christmas day is lovely but nothing beats how amazing a roast dinner seems to taste on Christmas day! I also really look forward to the sales year.

What's your favorite make up look for the festive season?
I'll guess you'll have to come back tomorrow, when I'll be posting my top five Christmas make up picks! Lets just say it involves a lot of shimmer!

Real or fake tree?
We've never had a real tree to be honest so I'll have to say fake, I love the idea that's it's just ready in the cupboard whenever you feel like putting it up..I think i'd be too lazy to look for a new one every year!

Giving or receiving presents? 
Both! I'm actually really looking forward to seeing everyone's reactions this year because I've put a lot of thought into my gift choices, although I love a good surprise on Christmas day myself! 

Do you open your presents in the morning or evening? 
Morning! I think my younger sisters would explode if they had to wait until the evening. I'm  lucky enough to be woken by them before 7am every Christmas - Yes, I envy me too.. 

Homemade or brought Christmas cards?
Maybe I'll get around to buying them this year, I'm useless at remembering stuff like this and end up stealing them off of my Mum every year! 

What's your favorite Christmas film?
ELF! I love anything that makes me laugh and thought it was brilliant at that.

What's your favorite Christmas food?
Pigs in blankets! Which if you don't know are basically sausages wrapped in bacon.. They're amazing!

I tag all of you guys!.. and if you have already done this tag leave me a link below, I'd love to read them!

Rimmel London's Disco Ball

With Christmas fast approaching I figured It's about time I got out the glitters! I'm a little bit of a magpie when it comes to nail polishes so expect to see lots of nail posts while I still have the excuse of the party season! Today's glitter is one of the more subtle I own, I find that it adds a bit of glam to pretty much every nail colour and is just really ideal if you're looking for a quick fix for a night out
I find that this polish is long lasting, plus it has the added bonus of drying quickly. You can build the polish up depending on how much glitter you want. Below is one coat over bare nails so you get a true picture of what it looks like, although I find it looks amazing over blacks, blues and slivers.
My nail broke a couple of days before this post...Typical!

For just £2.99 from Boots or Superdrug its well worth a try! Whats your favourite glitter polish?

My skincare staples..

Oh, how I've missed this flooring! I think I've mentioned before that my favorite place to photograph happens to be in my hallway, so its pretty much impossible in the week when there's people left, right and center. So I'm pretty happy I finally got some pictures this weekend! I try so many skincare products each month, but for me there are so few that stand out to me to the point I continue to use them. So I figured its about I'm I gave some attention to those that have stood the test of time for me. 

Vitamin E Hot Cloth Cleanser (£5.99)

This has been my go to cleanser for around a year now, I just think it does a brilliant job and keeps my skin in great condition in these colder months. I'd just recommend you go try it for yourself because I think its great!

St Ives Blemish Control Scrub (£3.99)

This is probably my favorite scrub, It leaves my skin feeling great. I'm so close to finishing this bottle, but I have no doubt I will buy again!

Cucumber Freshening water (£4.00)

This is the newest addition to my skincare staples, but I really enjoy using it and its reasonably priced too! 

Angelica Hydration Cream (£29.00)

I love this stuff, Its lasted ages but I just cant justify the price! Luckily I have a few samples stashed away which sound last a good while. 

Sudocrem (£3.49)

This is just a lifesaver for those annoying blemishes, plus you get so much of it you just know it will last forever!

Maybelline Fit Me Foundation

When I first heard the Fit Me range from Maybelline was coming to the UK I was so excited! Even more so when I heard about the way in which they were promoting the foundation by offering a huge 10ml sample to those who wished to try it (Although they vanished very quickly!). I absolutely love the system they have in place when it comes to matching your foundation, concealer and powder and think it would be so helpful to anyone starting out with make up. I loved the foundation itself so much that I featured it in my November Favorites, I found it to be light weight enough to feel comfortable on my skin while also giving me that extra bit of coverage for daily use.
However this love for the foundation was short lived and after posting that favorites post, I suffered from probably the worst break out I've ever had. Generally speaking I pretty much never suffer from break outs, although I'd always class myself as spot prone because I do get the odd spot here and there, which I guess is normal for any person of my age. But this was horrible and I sympathise so much more than ever before with anyone who has to deal with that on a daily basis. It started with the odd spot here and there including places I've never suffered with  before such as my cheeks and forehead, then when around eight had developed on my chin it suddenly hit me that the only thing I've changed recently is my foundation. Thankfully a couple of days on I've gone back to my BB cream and most of the redness has gone. I don't think I've ever had a reaction to anything so this really shocked me. 

But I wouldn't let my bad experiences put you off, since everyone's skin is different and if you like a light coverage this is for you! I'd recommend trying before you buy though since it would be a shame to waste money. 
Have you guys tried this foundation yet?

The overnight make up bag.

Last night I stayed over at my best friends house, so figured this would be the perfect chance to show you guys my overnight bag while its all in one place!
I love this Ecotools brush and use it without fail everyday to apply my powder, You can pick these up so cheap on Ebay and they're honestly worth every penny. My eyelash curler is just a £1 one from Primark since mine snapped and I haven't had the time/money to pick up a replacement, It does the job so I have no complaints . I also have some cotton pads along with Etat Pur cleansing water (Which I really need more of) as a quick fix to remove my make up along with this amazing hydration cream that i'm dying to own a full size off.
I threw in my Fit Foundation sample as its in such an ideal tube for traveling, along with my green concealer and witch one. I've been loving this powder from maybelline so topped my make up with that along with this amazing highlighter!
Lip wise I had this lovely lipbalm from balance me paired with my favorite lipstick from the Kate Moss collection (Shade 101 if you're wondering). I didn't have much with me for my eyes, just a (beaten up looking) brow gel along with this Loreal mascara. 

Whats in your overnight bag?
