Being a beauty lover, I get so hyped for the holiday season as all the holiday Christmas collections and gift sets are released! That means little sets which can help save extra pennies in your pocket and also new limited edition collections. Of course you can’t beat festive beauty with sparkly gold eye-shadows and red lip products! With loads of new releases and gift sets available, I thought I would share what is on my list to pick up this year which may also give you a little hint for yourself or if you are picking up a gift for a makeup enthusiast!

Last year, I picked up a mini set from Becca containing two of their popular highlighters in the Opal shade. This year they have brought it back in the same format with a mini liquid highlighter and mini powder version however this time around it is in the Moonstone shade which I have never tried. As you may know I am a huge fan of the Becca highlighters so this little set retailing for £20 is such a steal and I can’t wait to try out this beautiful shade!

I’ve always wanted to try the cult By Terry Baume De Rose lip balm but it is a pricey purchase! However luckily they have released a special festive edition in a lip gloss form. Retailing at £20 it is pricey but still a fraction of the original price and gives you a little trial of the ever so popular balm!

Moving on to Nars, one of my favourite beauty brands who always deliver such a great range over the festive period. This year was no different! The collection this year focuses around Sarah Moon and her photography work which features on the packaging. Whilst there is a great set of gift sets available, I am all about the colour collection. I have two products on my list, the first being this gorgeous matte nude lipstick which looks like my perfect shade! The other is an eyeshadow duo in the shade Quai Des Brumes which features two gorgeous shades with a shimmery lavender-grey and a charcoal grey with specks of shimmer. The two duos available are both gorgeous although I do prefer this one for its smoky look!

Lastly, Jouer have released a trio of their popular liquid lipsticks in three winter appropriate shades! Retailing at £31.50, this trio is near enough buy one get one free and offers three beautiful colours! There is a gorgeous cranberry red, a pink-y nude and an intense shimmery burgundy which I would love to try out! This set will have your winter lip wardrobe sorted and for that reason I may just have to pick this up!

A Cult Beauty Haul

cult-beauty-stila-jouer-liquid-lipstick-patina-nude-petale-de-rose-matte-primerI have been feeling rather spendy lately, I have to admit. A little Cult Beauty splurge will be only one of many little hauls that will be happening this month. I don’t really have an occasion but there has been a few new releases around at the moment that I have been desperate to try out and some other products that I have always had my eye on!

The main reason for my Cult Beauty haul, the new Jouer Cosmetics Long-Wear Lip Crème Liquid Lipsticks (longest name ever eh). I am totally obsessed with liquid lipsticks at the moment and the new range from Jouer seemed right up my street with a strong range of neutral shades. I picked up the shade Petale De Rose which as it suggests is a gorgeous rosy toned nude shade. I haven’t yet worn it but the colour is so pretty and also has such a lovely vanilla-y scent as well as the uber cute cube style packaging.

Looking through the range online, I thought I would further dip my toes into the brand of Jouer by trying out their very intriguing Anti-Blemish Matte Primer. The makeup-skincare hybrid of this product really drew me in, as well as acting as a matte primer to de-shine and minimise pores, it also contains Salicylic Acid to help treat blemishes. As someone with well blemished skin, this primer sounds very well suited. I have used this once but I am still trying it out, so I will let you all know later how I get on with it.

Lastly, I was super excited to see that the Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in the shade Patina was in stock. The dusty pink shade is super popular and has been out of stock for a long while so of course I had to snap it up. I haven’t tried it yet but I have heard such good things about the Stila formula so I am looking forward to trying this out!

Are you a fan of any of these products?
