 1 DAY TO GO!!!

I can’t believe I’ve done the whole of my Countdown to Christmas and not included this little gem. It’s the L’Oréal Infallible 24hr fresh wear foundation in the shade 135. Since I bought this a month or so ago I’ve not used any other foundation as it’s so amazing 
I have done a review about it so will leave you a link below and just on another note, the picture of the foundation was taken in the dark with the Superdrug selfie ring light!!! ( I told you it was good!!)


I can’t believe we are near the end of my little countdown to Christmas. It doesn’t seem like 5 minutes since we started. Today is the day when I really need to sort my mousy brown roots out. (notice I said Mousy brown and not grey!!) The colour I’m going for is the Superdrug Colour Vibrance range. These are super affordable and leave your hair super shiny with no fading! What more do we want!! 


You really don’t have to spend a lot when it comes to fragrances. All these were under £20 ( most under £10 ) and last just as long as some £50 plus. Definitely a great last minute gift idea.


Anyone who has any last minute “Secret Santa” gifts to buy should head on down to Superdrug. They do a whole range, under £5 especially for that very thing. The selfie light is £4.50 and is not only brilliant for selfies it’s great for taking blog pictures as well. 


No countdown to Christmas could be complete without a Matte lipstick. These are the Primark PS beauty ones and are £1.50. They are super value and are very long lasting. 

The eagle eyed ones might spot a Lustre lipstick in the photograph. These are slightly cheaper at 90p. I don’t usually go for this kind of lip product but the shade is so pretty I ended up popping it into my little basket anyway! 

With only 6 days to go, I thought I would bring to you another dupe products. I have talked about this from Lacura before. ( I will leave the link below) This bronzer is amazing and definitely worth a try while you’re out doing your Aldi food shop this weekend. 


With only 1 week to go, it’s time to get our festive nails on! Both my Nail polishes come from Primark and at less than £1 each you can afford to get one in every shade!!! 


So every year I buy a Christmas jumper! ( Who remembers the Disney one from last year?) This year I told myself I wouldn’t get one, but this Reindeer one was in the sale at Primark for £7 instead of £13 so how could I say no! 


It honestly felt like Christmas when I found the bag of my dreams in Topshop a few weeks back. It’s Leopard Print and furry!! What more does a girl want than this bag of wonderment! 
You guys know how much I love a “whats in my bag” post so please check it out below.


Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without a little splurge at your local drugstore for new makeup.  This month I’m been completely obsessed with white finishing powders ( I have 6 on the go at the moment!) This one from E.L.F ( no pun intended!) is one of my favourites! 

Oh Aldi how you are winning with the dupes at the moment with your latest offering! This Palette is another little bit of wonderment and it’s only £5.99. I’m going to do a full post about it after Christmas if you fancy checking out the swatches. 


I love a good brow product and if like me your brows are sparse the Revolution brow tint is the product you need. It’s only £5 and the tint lasts for days. The Revolution Pro micro pencil is great for filling in as well and both at such a fantastic price.
I will leave the link for the tint first impressions below, in case you fancy a little read!


The Naturally Radiant skincare range from Superdrug is one of my all time favourite ranges. The Glycolic Overnight Peel is the latest product I’ve been using and loving. It’s on offer at the moment and it will really give your skin a glow after too many late nights. 


Regular readers to this blog will already know about my love for the Superdrug Bloom range. ( They feature in my October Favourites which I will link below!  This Pink Peony and Cashmere edt is a fantastic buy for £5. The whole range does have a hint of Jo Malone about it and would make a great little Christmas gift. 


I am definitely a summer person and don’t like feeling so pale like I do in the winter months. That’s where this Skinny Tan Body Glow comes in. It’s a gradual tan ( so no orange overnight shocks) and it’s smells lovely. It’s also on offer in Superdrug at the moment, so what’s not to love!!


So I’m a tiny bit obsessed with Tortoise shell earrings and think you can never own enough pairs! All these are from Primark and at £1.50 - £2 each make great stocking fillers or are reasonably priced to treat yourself. 


If you know someone who loves Zoella, Superdrug have reduced some items from her 2018 Christmas gifting range. This bodymist was £7 for 100ml and would make a great present!         


So today is the the day when Soap and Glory release their star Christmas gift. The brand do this every year and I couldn’t wait to get hold of it. It’s £30 instead of £60 and would make an excellent Christmas gift. 


Poundland offer amazing body spray dupes at the moment. These fragrance mists are £1 each and smell amazing. 


Who doesn’t want Glittery nails at Christmas time and these Rimmel London ones look perfect together. 


Want beautiful feet in time for Christmas? These Superdrug foot peeling socks are excellent.  I first discovered these in the Summer and found they really worked and are amazing value as well. 


This palette from Wilkinson makes an excellent Christmas gift. Styled like the Urban Decay Naked Palette, it’s a complete steal at £2. The pigmentation on the shades are excellent as well. Definitely worth a look. 


These body sprays are a complete winner. Firstly they smell like designer fragrances ( Black Opium, Olympia and Alien) Secondly they are long lasting on your skin and Lastly they are £3.49 ( on offer at the moment at £2.49 from Superdrug!) 


This cake is a must for any cake fans and makes the perfect gift for Christmas because let’s face it who doesn’t love a cake.
I will leave the link below in case you fancy ordering one.
