Charlotte Tilbury Legendary Parties Christmas 2016 Collection

It’s only three months until the festive season really kicks off and I can already hear the jingle bells! Whilst Christmas is such a magical time of year, we all know it can also be a little stressful – battling the crowds of determined shoppers, anticipating those awkward family gatherings and spending absolutely weeks and weeks planning the perfect outfit to impress your office crush at the Christmas do!

Fast forward three months, you’ve shopped ‘til you dropped and have finally decided what to wear for your work party - the only thing left to do is make sure your make-up game strong! Well fear not treacles, as our favourite red-head, Charlotte Tilbury, will be taking the stress out of Christmas with the launch of her fabulous new Legendary Parties Collection.

Charlotte has always loved parties, believing that ‘Legendary parties need Legendary Makeup Moments’ and you can guarantee that with these beauties, you’ll be the centre of attention at yours! The collection has been so carefully put together and you can see the love and passion that’s gone in to this. She really captures the party vibe and totally makes it her own. Would we expect anything else? This is Charlotte’s World….

Charlotte’s World Of Legendary Parties Advent Calendar, £150

Following on from the success of last year’s must-have calendar, Charlotte is back with this Tilbury Treasure and it’s set to be a crowd pleaser! You can treat yourself on a daily basis over the festive season with this advent calendar - Jam packed with best-selling beauty treats from the multi-award-winning range, including Magic Cream, Wonderglow and Legendary Lashes (to name just a few!).

Giant Charlotte’s Magic Cream, 
£180

One of my all-time favourite Tilbury products is bigger and better than ever! The Giant Magic Cream is one for loyal magic cream fans! It’s quite pricey but you do get a lot more for your money as it’s three times bigger than the original, meaning the magic of Christmas can just go on and on! It also stands out with its extra-special, gold, octagonal packaging!

Dreamy Look In A Clutch, £90

This is the gift that just keeps on giving – wrapped in a super chic clutch, it boasts a host of Mini Legendary treats including the Muse Luxury Palette, Legendary Lashes Mascara, Matte Revolution Lipstick, a USB with an exclusive ‘get the dreamy look’ tutorial and a couple of other surprises too!

Capturing the essence of true seduction, this gift includes an Opium Noir Matte Revolution Lipstick and a Bedroom Black Rock’n’Kohl Iconic Liquid Eye Pencil. All presented in a beautiful gift box with a mirror and lights for a superstar-vanity table look, this would make the ultimate gift – although you’d probably just end up keeping it for yourself!

Matte Revolution Mini Lipstick Charms, £29

As one of last year’s best sellers, these extremely cute lipstick charms are returning for 2016 and would make perfect stocking fillers! The only difference is that they are now available in Charlotte’s Matte Revolution Lipstick formula.

Mugler Angel Scented Candle Review

Thierry Mugler is probably best known for its perfume division but has now decided to join the booming scented candle market with its MUGLER Candle Collection, a selection of eight beautifully handcrafted scents for the home.

Released earlier this month, the collection boasts some iconic scents including Angel and Alien, as well as six indulgent Les Exceptions candles.

The Angel fragrance has been a long-running favourite since it was originally released in 1992 and has been loved by millions of women including Cameron Diaz, Nicole Kidman & Britney Spears! In 2007 Angel won the Fragrance Hall of Fame award at the FiFi awards, a prestigious event in New York which honours achievements in the fragrance industry. It’s no surprise that as a result, Thierry Mugler wanted to extend the Angel offering, I’m just surprised it took this long!

ANGEL

The packaging is quite simplistic but beautifully presented, following a similar design to the fragrance. It looks great when burning as you can see the flame glowing through its lilac lacquered glass, which looks totally gorgeous and really sets the tone for the ultimate cosy night in!

After a quick whiff, I’ll be honest, I didn’t think this was going to be anything special but this is why you should never judge a book by its cover… On lighting the candle I was actually really surprised, this powerful but gorgeous scent of soft caramel and vanilla just instantly filled the room – it’s definitely scent from heaven! The candle really captures the essence of the iconic fragrance in a soft way that has been re-developed for the home and has a burn time of 40 hours which is great as it’s so highly addictive.

ALIEN

I’ve not yet tried the Alien candle unfortunately, but can’t wait to get my hands on this cosmic beauty. Presented in a beautiful purple lacquered glass, this looks to be an extremely comforting candle. It’s been suggested for optimal experience, you should light the candle for two hours at dusk for complete relaxation – it sounds out of this world!

Both candles are priced £39 and can be purchased here

Meet The Miracles - Diamond Sponge, Mini Eraser & Sculpting Sponge.

For those of you who regularly watch my YouTube channel you’ll know I’m a huge, huge fan of the Real Techniques miracle complexion sponge. When it comes to beauty this is my holy grail and is still, to this date, my favourite tool for foundation application. I haven’t found anything remotely close to the flawless results that this sponge delivers and if placed in a competition with the beauty blender, this would win hands down!

Perish the thought of this sponge ever being discontinued, I honestly don’t know what I’d do. A few months ago I was even devastated to notice that the shape of the sponge had changed and frantically searched the internet in the hope of stocking up on the old version. Luckily Real Techiques must have seen the error in their ways and I’m pleased to announce that the sponge has now reverted back to its original design – phew!

To add to my delight, I then discovered that the miracle sponge collection was expanding - I’m sure you can imagine the sheer level of excitement that ran through my body upon hearing this news! So, without further ado, let’s #MeetTheMiracles and check out these Real Tech-treats…

Bold Metals Miracle Diamond Sponge

The Miracle Diamond Sponge is the first from the Real Technique bold metal collection. Not only is it easy on the eye with its marble design, it has also been cleverly created with 13 facets to allow you to work with multiple products – genius! The top can be used for buffing and blending whereas the smaller, flat sides are designed for closer areas around the eyes and mouth. You can flip it on its side for application to larger areas of the face and then finish by using the fine pointed tip to cover any small imperfections! Proof that diamonds really are a girls (and boys!) best friend!

2 Miracle Mini Eraser Sponges
This 4-in-1 sponge has been made mainly for the eyes but that doesn’t mean it can’t be used on other areas of the face too. It’s super-cute and has a flat edge for erasing makeup from under the eyes, as well as rounded sides for buffing. It comes with a precision tip for those hard-to-reach corners of the eyes so if you have a beauty blunder, no-one will ever know!

Miracle Sculpting Sponge
This 6-in-1 sponge is for contouring and highlighting so you can sculpt and sculpt some more! Use the large flat edge for controlled contouring and the small rounded area for precision highlighting. It can be used with liquids, creams and powders for sculpting, pinching, highlighting and erasing – is there anything this sponge can’t do?

Both the mini eraser and miracle sculpting sponges are priced at £4.59 so you’d be mad not to add these to your collection!

Miracle Complexion Sponge
An absolute essential for everyone’s makeup bag. The sponge that previously could only be purchased in packs of 1 or 2 is now available in a value pack of FOUR. It’s like all of my Christmases have come at once! Anyone who’s interested in beauty is more than aware of how this multi-functional miracle of a beauty tool works by now, so I’ll leave it at that! Costing just £13.99 for a set of four - that’s money well spent if you ask me.

And that’s your lot! All of the new sponges are available to purchase NOW in Boots.

Diptyque 2016 Advent Calendar/A Night At Diptyque Christmas Collection

This year is absolutely flying by and just as we’re enjoying the summer, our thoughts will soon be turning to autumn. Before you know it we’ll be thrown right into the festive season as the Coca-Cola truck returns to our screens, reminding us that holidays are coming! 

We certainly don’t need to worry about our Christmas shopping just yet but one of the most important things that we DO need to start thinking about is which advent calendar to buy! Well, ladies and gents, I’m going to make life that little bit easier for you all as I have just the solution… Diptyque! 


Diptyque are releasing their brand-new advent calendar for 2016 which will knock your Christmas socks right off! The calendar is made up of mini candles which are a mix of some classic favourites and a selection of new, limited edition crackers. They’ve even thrown in a couple of skincare products too – it’s so exciting! Let’s open the 25 boxes to see what’s inside …

The calendar actually comes as part of Diptyque’s 2016 Christmas collection A Night at Diptyque which also includes some amazing NEW limited edition candles, last year we saw Sapin, Liquidambar & Oliban on our shelves over the festive period, but it seems that Diptyque have really gone to (tinsel) town with this year’s offering!

A Night at Diptyque

Un Encens Etoile

The metallic blue glass really gives a frosty, wintery look to this candle and you’ll feel super-Christmassy with its spicy incense scent!

A bit of a warmer feel here! Packaged in Christmas-red with a cinnamon and warm honey scent. Perfect for a cosy night in whilst watching the X-Factor final!

Le Roi Sapin
If you’re not one who enjoys the hassle of hunting for a real Christmas tree then fear not! This pine-scented beauty will more than make up for an artificial one. No-one will ever know!

Baies Christmas Special

One of our absolute favourite scents has had a bit Christmas makeover. Presented in a classic black glass container, dotted with festive snowflakes and packaged in the limited edition ‘Une Nuit Chez Diptyque’ box – just gorge!

Tubereuse Candle

Not just a candle but a fantastic Christmas decoration too! It has a burn time of 60 hours so just light it up, relax with a hot chocolate and watch it spin!

So there you have it, the new Christmas collection from Diptyque! The full prices haven’t yet been confirmed but what we do know is that some of the mini candles (70g) retail at £28 with the larger candles (190g) retailing at £42. Exclusive to Selfridges, the collection will be available from mid-November. I hope you’ve all been good!
