Advent Calendar Haul | Week 3


Christmas day is two days away! And so I have opened more doors from my advent calendars, and so you know what time it is – time for me to share with you everything I got in my advent calendars!

Week 3M&S


Ciglione Mascara | Curvy wand, bristle brush. Not my typical mascara that I love, but it’s a full size product, so a great gift to receive!

Shay & Blue Blood Orange | I love it! It’s that really fresh, but sweet scent of orange rind… and I literally love this scent!

Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion | It says it resurfaces the uppermost layer of your skin.. intriguing.

Leighton Denny Nail Polish (Star Dust) | Holographic white glitter nail polish, it looks super pretty and I can’t wait to start layering this over other lipsticks.

Percy & Reed Session Hold Hairspray | I actually don’t use hairspray that often… like at all. So I’m not sure if I’ll get round to using this, but mini hairsprays are super useful for those who use it.

PIXI LipLift Max (Honey Sheen) | This looks super pretty and I can’t wait to try it!



Carmex Lip Balm | I actually already own this lipbalm and it’s a really nice lipbalm.. although it does tingle when you put it on your lips (which I dont really enjoy, and I’ve read is not that good for you).

DHC Deep Cleansing Oil | I have never used a cleansing oil, but I hear great things about them, so I am very excited to try it.

Nude by Nature Loose Bronzer (Bondi Bronze) | A loose bronzing powder with a light shimmer, and the packaging is to die for!

Deep Sleep Pillow Spray | A lavender scented spray. I don’t feel like it makes the biggest difference to sleep, but it is somewhat relaxing

NYX Lip Cream (Copenhagen) | Deep berry, purple undertone, dark. Full size. Love this lip creams by NYX

Codage Creme Gommante Scrubbing Cream | I don’t like the texture of scrubbing creams (I so prefer gels), so I’m not sure I will actually use this… however, it’s nice to know it’s there.


Look Fantastic

Dr. Lip Original Nipple Balm | I have heard some great things about this balm (which you can use for other places… like your lips, not just your nippes), so I can’t wait to try it!

Moroccan Oil Hair Oil | I have had so many of these, and while I think the oil makes your hair look and feel amazing… I feel like most hair oils do, so I don’t tend to buy this myself.

Caudalie Vinosource | I feel like you get so many of these samples in beauty boxes and things, and while I do quite enjoy the formula (it’s very nice for the summer and it’s a lighter moisturiser), I already have 2 or 3 in my drawer…

Model Co Instant Brow | With a spoolie one end and a medium brown pencil the other end, it looks promising.

Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist | This has the finest mist ever! It has a beautiful floral scent… not entirely sure of it’s purpose… but it feels and looks super luxurious

Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Therapy | Who doesn’t love a good hand cream? Especially in the middle of winter when your lips are super dry


Tanya Burr

Lip Gloss (Ice Queen) | Gold/Silver reflect glitter lip gloss. I feel like this would work really well on top of lipsticks to make your lips look fuller.

Glitter Pot ( Midnight Magic) | Geen/gold/black reflect glitter. Such an unusual and interesting colour… so intrigued by this



Nail Polish (Velvet Slipper) | Deeper berry-pink (its a really difficult colour to describe). It’s a stunning winter colour!

Glitter Eyeliner (Gold)| Eek! So festive… a gold glitter eyeliner… super excited

I’m Conditional Mascara | I have to say, I really don’t like Sleek’s mascaras. However, I have never tried this one, so I will definitely give it a go

Matte Me (Velvet Slipper) | Same colour as the nail polish (I really love that Sleek have done this.. more than once).

Eye Pencil (Royal) | A royal/midnight blue eyeliner, I love to put colours like this on my bottom lashes to add a little bit of colour.

Lip Pencil (Currant) | This is a lip liner that really matches Velvet Slipper very well.



Lingerie (Embellishment) | These are basically all nudes… and so difficult to tell apart… but all very much up by street

Butter Lipstick (Root Beer Float) | Mauvey/deeper nude. This colour and formula is so up my street! I can see this being a new favourite of mine

Simply Red Lip Cream (Russian Roulette) | Classic Red lip pencil. The formula of these really impress me – super pigmented, easy to apply, comfortable on the lips… literally love them!

Liquid Suede (Stone Fox) | A super dark blue-toned black. Not sure I would ever be bold enough to wear this colour… but some people would love this

Butter Gloss (Raspberry Fart) | A deep, but bright purple… not sure it will be a colour I wear, but very pretty

Soft Matte Lip Cream (Copenhagen) | Super dark, blackcurrant. Got the full size one in the ASOS advent calendar!

Another week (nearly) down, and another set of presents… I’ll be back with this in 2 days for the last set
