The Holiday Edit: Beauty Products


You may have seen my holiday makeup post over the weekend. If you did you’ll know I’ve been scrambling to try and cut down on the amount I’m taking with me. Well I am here to tell you that I have been very successful in narrowing down what I’m taking…joke, I’ve totally over packed…as per usual!

Here’s what I went for…



  • NAKED palette
  • NAKED body shimmer
  • URBAN DECAY Anarchy Palette
  • Dior Glow Maxiizer
  • NARS Laguna
  • NARS Orgasm
  • ARMANI Luminous Silk
  • MAC Studio Fix
  • NYX Dewy Setting Spray
  • NYX HD Powder
  • BOBBI BROWN Concealer & Corrector
  • HD Brow Palette
  • 5 Eyeliners
  • 10 Lipsticks
  • 5 Lip Glosses
  • MAC & CHANEL pastel eyeshadows
  • ME, ME, ME, highlighter
  • SMASHBOX Photo Finish Primer (sample size)
  • BENEFIT Porefessional (sample size)
  • Shu Uemura eyelash curlers
  • Basic brush set



  • *Organii Shea Butter shower gel
  • Fake Bake 60 minute tan
  • Vaseline Spray Moisturiser
  • Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray
  • LUSH Angels on Bare Skin cleanser
  • Garnier Mattifying moisturiser
  • *Lavera Facial Fluid
  • Nip & Fab Scrub Fix
  • Soltan face SPF 50
  • LUSH lip exfoliatior
  • Ojon & Bumble & Bumble hair samples



Apart from my Bumble & Bumble Surf Spray, a few bobbles, my tangle teezer and GHD’s I found this ace hair set in TK Maxx. I’m totally obsessed with Percy & Reed so was made up to find this kit for £9.99. It has everything I’ll need in it. Shampoo, Conditioner, no oil, oil, styling balm, finishing polish and hairspray.



I thought I’d throw a few polishes and some nail polish remover into my bag incase I fancied doing a manicure by the pool. To be honest I’ll probably not use them and get a manicure when I’m out there!

So that’s my not so little bag of goodies. Knowing me I packed more beauty products than clothes, but a girl must be prepared, right?! To be honest when I packed it all up it actually didn’t look that bad…well that’s what I’m telling myself!

  1. Hahahahh I knew this would happen. Look at all the products listed under ‘face’! You did a pretty good job though, especially on hair. A pat on the back. I absolutely love those mosaic bits you have pictured. They are so pretty and matchy matchy with that lovely mirror. Ahhhh I want your make up and your mosaics and all your things. 😀

    • Ah thanks Rosemary, you can get the mosaic candle holders from Yankee Candle, the mirror is from a random shop years ago. I think I did ok with the packing too. Let’s face it I was always going to overpack makeup xx
