Hello my loves! I hope you're all doing well. It's been a little while now since my family came to visit me, and my mum got me a cute little makeup/travel bag with some little beauty essentials in it, so I just thought I'd show you through some of my favourites!
So here's a little overview of everything inside. The things I didn't take close-up pictures of, are the scope mouthwash (because you all know what mouthwash looks like!), a little teeny bar of hand soap, a Merlot Skincare Moisturiser, and some Bvlgari cotton pads. Lovely additions to a little beauty package! The bag itself is a Clinique make-up bag and I absolutely LOVE the print on it - so light and colourful - and the perfect size for travelling.
So inside the Clinique makeup bag are three little bits of Clinique makeup. There's a little tiny Clinique Lash Doubling mascara which I've yet to try, but have heard fab things about. The blusher is in shade A5 'Sunset Glow' which is a darker pink than what I'd normally wear but it will look nice in Winter when my pale skin really comes out. The lipstick is in the shade 74 'A Different Grape' and it goes on like a DREAM. Its very moisturising - I'd have taken a picture but my lips (and upper lip!) aren't too beautiful looking at the moment, so I hope the swatches will do!
Now this product is my absolute favourite, and I've since decided to stock up on the full size. As you can see I've used a fair amount of it, but the Clinique Take The Day Off Makeup Remover is to die for. When I wear a full face of make-up, I have light coverage on my skin and usually pile it on my eyes - and honestly, this takes off all my eye makeup in two swipes with a cotton pad! It leaves my eyes feeling super soft and I just love it. Step aside, Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish because Clinique is taking over!
And lastly, I was given a trusty Chocolate Montagne Jeunesse face mask - I've loved these ever since I was younger, and they were a staple at any sleepover. They always left my skin feeling nice and soft so they're a lovely little addition. I've always seen Mum have Bvlgari products in her bathroom, and I've since learnt that some of their skin products are discontinued?! (Say it isn't so!) because this Bvlgari body lotion smells absolutely divine. It's lightly scented of a cream/milk with a really soft floral scent that I can't quite work out! And a product I'm yet to try is the Bvlgari Bath Tea Bag. But if it smells anything like the body lotion, then I'm in for some pretty sweet smelling bath time later!
So I hope you liked this little post, if theres any products you think I should do a full critique on, tweet me or leave me a little comment. Thank you mum for the lovely present!
