What I got for Christmas - Beauty | Chanel, Dior, Benefit and more!

Okay so this is quite possibly the world's latest 'What I got for Christmas' post ever.. but we're gonna run with it. Here are my favourite beauty orientated Christmas presents from 2014!

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle - Eau De Parfum

I absolutely adore This perfume! I got a large bottle of the eau de toilette last year and did occationally complain about it's lack of strength.. guess my father got the hint! If you're into your fresh, girly floral scents then this is definitely the perfume for you! The scent is known as Chanel's 'younger' perfumer and has a beautiful soft jasmine-rose scent with top notes of orange and mandarin and warm vanilla base notes. Can we all also just quickly appreciate how beautiful the bottle is!

Dior Lip Maximizer

I love lip plumpers they're great. I have mad my eye on this one for ages! The Dior Lip Mazimizer is not just an instant volume boost but also has incredible long term effects! The pinky toned translusent gloss contains hyaluronic and marine-based fillers such as collagen to moisturize, plump and refine lips over time! It also looks gorgeous on it's own or worn before your favourite lip colour for plumper look! 

Benefit They're Real Liner

Aah one from the workplace (Benefit Christmas temp holla!) I love this liner! The first of it's kind, the Benefit They're Real liner is a gel liner formulation in the form of a pen - leaving out the tricky brush skills out of a gel pot! The liner has a gorgeous matte black finish and a unique Accuflex tip which even the haphazard-est of eye liner appliers will find incredibly easy to use! I adore this liner for a natural thin line to enhance an everyday look and to add a little more drama to my eyes in the evenings.

Soap & Glory - Puffy Eye Attack

I needed this. Seriously. I've only used it three times but I'm already seeing the difference! This eye cream boosts moisture and circulation in the delicate under eye area to reduce puffiness and the appearance of dark circles. I know I'll definitely be repurchasing this when it runs out! 

Lee Stafford - Bleach Blondes Shampoo and Conditioner

Anyone who knows me will know how much I absolutely love Lee Stafford products! As I'm sure I've mentioned in a previous post somewhere along the line - nothing but nothing smells as good as his products! They also do exactly what they say on the wittingly descriptive tins.. or..bottles! These products in particular are toning products for brassy hair. Any bottle blonde will tell you just how essential toning products are in preventing looking like you have  canary on your head! Looking forward to testing these out a little more as toning shampoo works over time but so far so good!

Baybliss Wide Barrel Curling Iron

One thing I did ask for this Christmas was a wide barrel curling iron! My sister picked this one out and didn't hold back on telling me how hard it was to find one of my exact specifications (wide barrel, no clip - how hard could it be huh?) Despite the hilarious cries of 'use lubricant' from my mother upon opening, I have to say this was one of my favourite presents! I've used this twice now and I'm very happy with the effect! the soft curls it creates are absolutely heavenly! I'm feeling a review coming on..

So there we are! Just a few of the spectacular beauty gifts I was very lucky to receive from my beautiful family this Christmas! What were your favourite Christmas presents? Have you tied out any of these products yourself? Let me know in the comments below!
