I’m more than slightly obsessed with Christmas, and my favourite part about the season is giving presents. I like to think I’m a pretty good gift-giver – I like to put a lot of thought in all my gifts, and its definitely my favourite part of Christmas day!
I also love my beauty products, too, so when JustMyLook asked if I’d like to take part in their blogger secret santa challenge I couldn’t resist!
JustMyLook offer your favourite drugstore makeup products like Revlon, Maybelline, OPI, Rimmel and more at a seriously discounted rate. The best part? They also offer free shipping to UK addresses, too! I’ve found some of my drugstore favourites like the Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation with up to £2 off, and MaxFactor mascaras up to £4 cheaper than in Boots or Superdrug. Amazing!
The team at JustMyLook gave me £20 to play with, and a 10% off code to put together a nice package for my Secret Santa. I was lucky enough to get paired up with someone I know quite well from blogging, and who is really lovely, so I wanted to put an extra nice gift together for her.
In terms of her look, she’s what I’d call an English Rose – she has a very fair complexion, so I wanted to go for a very simple and classic look. She also mentioned that she has quite sensitive skin, so I didn’t want to go for anything too glittery that might irritate her skin. Wanting to add a personal touch to the gift, I went with a few of my everyday beauty staples.
I’m a massive fan of liquid eyeliner – my signature look is a cat-eye flick, and I really love using the MaxFactor Glide and Define Eyeliner. My favourite drugstore mascara is the Maybelline Lash Sensational, so those went in the basket – along with the Rimmel Stay Matte Powder.
I wanted to include something with a little bit of colour, so I added a bottle of OPI’s Pinking of You nail polish. It’s a really pretty pink colour, and with a donation going to breast cancer charities with every purchase, I couldn’t resist!
My Secret Santa mentioned in her note that she hadn’t tried contouring before – and so I included the last item on the list – the W7 Catwalk contour palette. This is the only product that I hadn’t tried before, but I was really keen to get her a cream contour palette, as I think they are much more effective than powder! I bought the Anastasia Beverly Hills Powder Contour Kit, and hardly use it, always reaching for my BeautyUK cream-based contour palette – so fingers crossed that the W7 version is a good one!
Thanks, JustMyLook, for this opportunity – you’ve got a new fan!
Although I was reimbursed for the cost of the gifts, all opinions are fully my own.
