C: it makes me super sad I only have 3 doors left to open of my calendar… But HELLO CHRISTMAS!
Yesterday I received the extravagant volume waterproof mascara which I think is full sized. A new mascara is always a welcome addition to my stash as I always rebuy my benefit mascara so don’t normally get to try out other options as I hate buying things that might not work for me!
Then today I received the smokey eye brush! This is perfect for this time of year and for me because I love a good smokey eye! This is quite densely packed and will be amazing at applying colour and blending it out! I literally can’t wait to try this and can imagine it’s going to become a firm favourite in my collection!
What do you think of my day 21 and 22 treats?! #twolittleowls
C: ahh I had been doing so well at remembering every day!!! But alas, yesterday was just too busy and I didn’t have time… Well I did last night but I was too busy laying on the sofa drinking snowballs.
So yesterday I received the Stay Perfect Amazing Eyes Pencil in black. Now this is the third eyeliner of the advent calendar which would normally annoy me but I hadn’t tried these before and I’m absolutely loving them!
Then today I received a Stay Perfect Eye Shadow which is apparently a shade from the Moonlight Shadow Trio. It is a very pale pinky nude and looks perfect as an inner corner highlight (it’s a lot paler than I could photograph). Once again I am happy to receive this as I love the quality of no7 eye shadows!
What do you think of these advent calendar treats?! I shall try my hardest to post again tomo but you know… There’s Christmas films to be watching and chocolate that needs eating #twolittleowls
Today I received a 7ml Youthful Eye Serum. This can apparently be worn underneath eye cream for an extra little boost, which I’m sure may assist my face due to the lack of sleep that comes with a baby, however I also forget to put eye cream on nowadays and normally just stumble to bed and pass out with no concern to face creams!
I will however try and test this out, as iv never tried an eye serum before and I’m interested to see what difference it may make!
Have any of you guys tried an eye serum before? #twolittleowls
Today I received a mini nail effects polish in “sun rays” which has tiny gold glitter in various sizes throughout a clear topcoat. Meaning you can use this on its own for a glittery mani or under a base colour to add sparkle (which is how I will use it).
I love no7 polishes so I am happy to receive some more, and it’s good timing as my gold glitter topcoat from them has just gone to live in my empties pot! This is slightly different because it’s smaller glitter with different sizes but it will still make an amazing Christmas mani!
C: TEN DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!!!!! Wahoooooo!!!! I have been dreading today cos baba has her second lot of jabs today, but my no7 advent calendar has cheered me right up!
I received a sample sized High Shine Lip Crayon in an anonymous colour, which isn’t clever no7 as how are we meant to repurchase if we don’t know the shade name!
But anyway, I have this exact lip crayon already (in another nameless sample alas) and I love it so I’m quite happy to receive a back up! It is even better than Cliniques chubby sticks in my opinion (and I’m a big fan of those too). As rather than being moisturising with a hint of colour these are wayyyy more pigmented and the colour is a little more long lasting.
Not as long lasting as a lipstick, but it fades evenly so you can wear this out to dinner with no clown face concerns!
Has anyone else tried the no7 lip crayons? They are an essential for any lip crayon fans! #twolittleowls
C: please say I’m not the only one who thinks December is going way too quickly this year?! I feel like iv missed out on half of the lead up, but thankfully I have finished my Christmas shopping now! Once again I opened my no7 advent calendar today:
I received a mini nail polish in “me me me” which is a bright pink. Not a particularly festive colour, but one that will appeal to most peopld buying a beauty calendar I suppose! Personally I’m not a very pink person but I often use it when doing nail art and flowers etc so it will get used I’m sure!
