What I Got For Christmas '15 - Make-Up Edition

Although I wrote a 'What I Got For Christmas' post already, I thought I would do another one with just my make-up gifts. My friends and family know me awfully well and again, I am extremely grateful. Doing make-up is a real enjoyment of mine so getting these presents makes me so excited to try new things. 

As well as getting make-up, my parents also brought me some new storage. I used to use the clear acrylic caddies but found that they didn't really hold much. I had been researching different storage ideas for a while but couldn't really find anything different. My parents got me this white, revoling caddy which stores a lot more. It's ideal as you can spin it around and has lots of different compartments to place things in. It was designed by Lori Greiner and is available through QVC. Although I have a drawer unit with the majority of my make-up in, I like to have a smaller storage unit to put my most used products in. I am in love with it!

I also got a new mirror which has built in lights around the edge. The mirror is from Lakeland and linked below. The lighting in my bathroom is awful so this is perfect. My sister also got me a new brush holder as my collection is getting bigger and bigger.

Now onto the make-up. Firstly, I got three Make-Up Revolution eyeshadow palettes. I was recently introduced to this brand but quickly realised how amazing their products are. I'm pretty sure I own around 7 of their palettes already, cheek and eye. The make-up is such good quality with such a low price and all the palettes are so different. Below shows the three palettes I got;

(L-R); Girls On Film, Naked Chocolate and Mermaids Forever
The rest of the make-up I got is all MAC. I think it's safe to say that my obsession with this brand has rubbed off onto my friends and family. My best friend seriously treated me and brought me an eyeshadow palette and a lipstick. The lipstick is from the Viva Glam collection which I don't own anything from. It's a brown/berry colour which is a perfect shade for the winter. The other lipstick in the photo below is from the Ellie Goulding collection, which is what my parents got for me. It's a lovely pink nude.

The last two things I got are from MAC's holiday collection. They're both sets of four and the packaging is so smart. The first item is the Irresistibly Charming Pigments in Glitter/Gold. These are the first pigments I own from MAC and they are so beautiful.

The second thing from their holiday collection I got is the Irresistably Charming Patent Polish in Nude. Again, I don't own any Patent Polishes from MAC but I love these. They're so subtle and leave your lips feeling moisturised.

I hope you enjoyed seeing all my presents that are make-up related, this year.
