Fast Forward to Blogmas Day 24: What I got myself for Xmas

Sorry for stopping at Blogmas Day 16, work & life just got better of me that my Blogmas this year was a fail. 

Anyway, it is Christmas Eve today so I want to show you what I got myself for Christmas! (Oh yes, I can find any excuse to treat myself! And it is Christmas!!)
I have finally bought the Chanel Rouge Allure Gloss Colour and Shine Lipgloss in One Click which I have been wanting since its launch earlier this year. I settled on the no. 13 Affriolant. When I swatched the colour colour in the shop, it looked nudy corally pink compare to other colours. But after I bought it and worn it for the first time, it actually looked a brighter pink and more pigmented than my swatches in the shop, which actually was a good thing! I wear a light layer as a day to day colour, but it can be worn thicker to let the colour really show through and make lips look fuller! I am so happy that I got it!

The second buy is a nail art kit from MoYou London. I'd never heard of MoYou London before until I saw their display in Boots. MoYou London create a whole range of patterned metal plates, which makes it so easy for everyone to create beautiful nail arts at home by easy stamping technique! I picked up The Pro set which contains two patterned metal plates, three stamping nail polishes, tools for stamping and an instruction booklet. I am going to play with it during the holidays, so keep an eye out for a review very soon! Meanwhile, I leave you with a quick demo from their YouTube Channel, I am sure you will be hooked!

"Are you serious?" I know what you are thinking. Wetherspoon pubs have revamped their menu and food quality, but the price has stayed low.

Budget Buy: MUA nail polish in Natural Days

When I was in Superdrug to buy the Tiffany colours (NYC nail polishes  - check out my blog post here ), as the offer was 3 for 2 across all nail polishes, I picked up a MUA polish as my freebie. I saw this pastel baby pink colour in Natural Days. The colour looks really cute in the bottle.

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
