The Missing book:
As a Psychology student, I am a sucker for a good psychological thriller! I have been loving reading this book over the Christmas holidays! It is so captivating, I found myself struggling to put it down! If you follow me on Twitter (shameless plug: @ VLBeautyx) you will probabaly know how addicted I was to Season 2 of 'The Missing' which was on BBC1 last month. I found that so gripping and I am led to believe that this is the book for Season 1 of that drama, so I can't wait to watch to Season 1 after I have finished this book!

M.A.C Cosmetics Lipstick in the shade 'Whirl':
I treated myself to this when I braved the Trafford Centre on Boxing Day, with some of the Christmas money that I was kindly gifted. I have been after this shade for quite some time now and I am not disappointed in the slightest! I have worn this twice already and I am so in love with it! 'Whirl' is described as a dirty rose with a matte finish, although I would say the finish is a lot more creamy and hydrating that some other matte lipsticks I own.

DUO waterproof clear eyelash glue- 
Over this past year, I have started wearing fake eyelashes for special occasions such as a night out. I usually just used the glue that came with the eyelashes in the packet but this month, I decided it was about time I bought a more reliable eyelash glue, as I noticed they didn't always stay on all evening. I heard Gabbie (YT channel) raving about the DUO Striplash eyelash glue (link here) and I was surprised at how inexpensive it was. I decided to try it out for myself, and needless to say I've been very impressed! I opted for the clear glue which also claims to be waterproof. I have found that this lash glue keeps my lashes firmly in place and also doesn't damage the lashes! I fully recommend this lash glue.

Kim Kardashian Perfume:
I have had this perfume for a number a years now but I have to say, I never really took to it. It has a very strong floral scent which I think my younger self was put off by. However, I have worn this perfume all across the festive period and felt 'put together' by finishing off getting ready by spritzing a bit of this onto myself. I find that this perfume lasts all throughout the day/evening and as it is so rich and striking, i have received a lot of compliments about this perfume! This has now become my go-to night-out/evening perfume.

Real Techniques Brush Cleansing Palette and Gel:
I kindly received both of these off 'Santa' for Christmas which I was very happy about as I have wanted to try these for a long time now! I have most of the Real Technique brushes so it is so exciting to be able to clean my brushes with the 'proper equipment'!! I find using the cleansing palette so helpful when cleaning my brushes, even if I just use baby shampoo, instead of the cleansing gel, as the palette has different textures and surfaces for an enhanced, deep clean! This definitely makes cleaning my makeup brushes less of a chore.

I hope everyone had a very merry Christmas and I wish you all the best for 2017!
