Festive Makeup Picks

Product Reviews, Uncategorized

It is getting ridiculously close to Christmas and I’m so excited! I’m back today with some makeup picks but this time with a festive twist. I have put together a list of products that I have been loving and will see you through your celebrations.

*Disclaimer* This post includes affiliate links. That being said I will always give my honest thoughts and reviews on any product featured.


Jeffree Star Velour liquid lipstick shade ‘redrum’

A classic red can be used at any time of the year, but nothing is more Christmassy then a glam red lip. Wear it matte or with a gloss. I love the smooth formula and how long lasting this is on the lips without it being drying.

Rimmel Lip Art lipgloss shade ‘010’

I have been using this in quite a few of my recent makeup tutorials. It is a gloss with a iridescent finish. This can be worn on its own or on top of a lip shade to add dimension and a sheen effect. Super glam.

Lime Crime Metallic Velvetine shade ‘posh’

There is something so festive about a metallic lip shade and this rich purple shade is one of my favourites. It is great if you don’t want to commit to wearing dark purple lipsticks. As always I love the Lime Crime formula and the metallic finish is so beautiful and long lasting which is a must when continuously sipping your drinks to celebrate!.

Lord & Berry shiny lip pencil shade ‘diva’

This is a new product for me and I have just reviewed this in my latest beauty box. I’m loving it so much, it’s a gorgeous glossy deep purple shade and looks stunning on the lips, very vampy. I really like that it’s in pencil form, making it super easy to apply. I have been pairing this lip shade with with a gold glittery eye.

Calvin Klein Luxury Creme lipstick shade ‘henna’

Can’t forget a pinky nude lipstick for those who like a more natural party look. The forumla is so incredibly creamy and glides onto the lips. It has a satin finish and is super moisturising.

W7 Metal Kiss liquid lipstick shade ‘heavenly’

Another metallic lipstick but this time for someone with the mantra ‘go hard or go home’. This is a stunning metallic copper shade with little flecks of glitter. Although it has a thick formula it is very easy to apply and looks amazing on the lips. Not one I would necessarily wear day to day but definitely for a party or night out paired with a basic eye look.

Models Own nail polish shade ‘disco mix’

Glittery nails are a must for me this time of year, I love this mixed glitter polish from Models Own. It has blue,silver and pink glitter. It’s fabulous!

Sally Hansen nail polish shade ‘Rudolph red’

A red to match your red lips but with a metallic twist. I am a big fan of the Sally Hansen range for how long wearing they are.

Ciate paint pot shade ‘sand dune’

A gorgeous shimmery gold with little flecks of glitter, this looks beautiful on its own or used as a topper when layered on another colour. I like to pair this with a nude nail polish.

Barry M Molten Metal nail polish shade ‘silver lining’

A highly pigmented silver metallic shade. For bold nails or funky nail art. I love the other shades in Barry M molten metal range. I seriously recommend checking them out if metallic is your thing.


Jolie Beauty Luxe Glitz palette

One of my favourites palettes. I use it mainly for the pressed glitter but the matte eyeshadows are also brilliant if you want to do a matte eye look with glitter detailing. You don’t need any glitter fixing gel to use these, simply apply with your finger and it stays put. I have created a eye look with this that will be up on Friday!.

Makeup Revolution highlighting palette

Those of you who are regular to my blog will know how much I love a poppin highlight. I recently bought this trio of highlighters and have fallen in love with them. It comes with a champagne colour, peach and a pink. They are really pigmented and give of the most gorgeous glow without being chalky.
