I’ve got quite a few Christmas gifts to blog about in upcoming weeks and I’m starting off with one for the mineral cosmetics lovers.
Take a look at the Retro Glamour Collection Make Up Bag from Lily Lolo (£24.99)
This is a nice little kit, containing nearly everything you could need for your Christmas Party look. There’s a black Lash Alert Mascara, which I really liked. There’s a lovely loose eyeshadow in Mystical which is a gorgeous silvery grey, not too dark. Then there’s a lovely grey eye pencil which I was really impressed with. I love the shade and the performance was excellent on it. Soft enough to apply without dragging, but still stays put all day.
The final items in the set are a lipstick in Desire and a mini brush. The lipstick isn’t quite my colour but I still need to have a rave about it because the formula is amazing. It’s a berry shade but applies beautifully, almost like a balm, it has a sheen about it but still manages to be long wearing.
All in all a lovely little kit. There are Christmas Gifts for every budget and they all look lovely, so do head over to Lily Lolo for a look.

I have to admit I’m feeling pretty bad about this blog post. I’ve had this cracker for a couple of weeks but of course, as you all know I’ve been a bit otherwise engaged and so tonight is the first time I’ve sat down to write about it. And it’s sold out online already. I’m so sorry readers, I must admit I feel like a bit of a failure about this. I am however going on with the blog post in the hope that if you should fancy it, if you’re quick you may be able to find one if you have a Jo Malone London store near you (which alas I don’t!).
The cracker always sells out fast I’m told, and I’m not surprised, it’s a fairly affordable way of getting a bit of luxury in your life at Christmas. This year’s cracker contains 15ml of Pomegranate Noir Body & Hand Wash, along with 9ml of Lime Basil & Mandarin Cologne and a lovely little 15ml pot of Orange Blossom Body Creme (the texture of which is to die for, as is the scent), so it is a lovely gift. Well worth hunting out if you can find it anywhere. The cracker retails at £28.
There are plenty of other fabulous seasonal offerings from Jo Malone London which you can find HERE.
As a final note, I want to add how much I really love the festive ribbon which has a touch of silver.
