Secret Santa - what I got

I've been carefully avoiding doing a 'what I got for Christmas' post as I know they tend to be quite unpopular, but as you'll probably know, bot me and Laura organised a beauty secret santa for near on 40 people this Christmas, the budget was £15 but you could bulk it out with other bits and bobs you already had in your collection, like maybe doubles or things from beauty boxes that you didn't like etc.  So Laura and I decided to swap with each other, and here's what she sent me :)

As you can see, she sent me some pretty awesome products :)  The highlights of it for me were the Neve catbuki brush, both nail polishes, the Sleek palette, the juicy tubes lip gloss and the maybelline 24h lipstick and the BarryM eyeliner :)  I love everything that was in here, but those are my favs :)  There was also a lindt chocolate, but I ate that on Christmas day as I was opening up all the presents :)  

She did also send me a really thoughtful present that I had to open before Christmas, it was this china baubal that was customised, so thoughtful, already I can't wait for next year so I can put it up again :)

So thank you Laura for such an amazing set of presents, I hope you liked all yours :)

  5. I don't understand why some people don’t like posts like this; I think it’s cool to see what people got for Christmas. You got really awesome things; I also did a x-mas swap with her so I kind of got similar things as you did.
