2018 has seen my love for Hourglass grow bigger and bigger as their products make up much of my daily face. Hourglass is brand worth every single penny in my opinion. As well as their incredibly famous powders and blushers, their lipsticks are first class and the Holiday Set Collection is one that I have been using all over the festive periodYou have probably already seen these Limited Edition launches with the face palettes and lipstick sets but regardless, I wanted to share these  products I have been using on my face relentlessly should you need any guidance, or persuasion. Plus you can still purchase all individually so this is not just a seasonal trend

We are talking lips and face and it doesn't come more luxurious or fancier than this ... 
HOURGLASS  Holiday Collection 2018, Unlocked Palette
HOURGLASS  Holiday Collection 2018, Confession Lipstick
HOURGLASS  Holiday Collection 2018, Unlocked Palette
Hourglass face palettes are a collectable. They sell out almost instantly, they have a huge fan following and ultimately give you all that you want in a face palette. You don't need them all (unless you are a super fan) so being selective to what you want and need is key, and obviously the shades included! Not thing they do do, is cater to many skin tones and types so this is a very universal make-up item to own. 

The latest face palettes are the Ambient Lighting Edit Vol.4 and Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked. I purchased unlocked a few weeks back myself as I really could not let this one slip through my grasp as I only in fact own a few trio face palettes as they just never seem to run out. One of the things that most attracted me to Unlocked was the fact that all shades were in fact new so there was no danger of having them already in another palette or single. PLUS they are 100% Vegan and being a cruelty free brand, a portion of profits goes to supporting the Nonhuman Rights Project; and being the animal lover that I am, this makes me very happy. I love the new logo on the casing too, I just wish that other brands would take note. 

HOURGLASS  Holiday Collection 2018, Unlocked Palette
HOURGLASS  Holiday Collection 2018, Unlocked Palette
HOURGLASS UNLOCKED PALETTE £69 (here!)
This may in fact already be sold out, so if you see it and are debating it, buy it! 
It features 6 new shades of powder, bronzer, blush and highlighter. This palette gives you a photo finish look to your skin and simply enhances your complexion with very little effort needed at all. The powders are so finely milled and soft and last a life time. This was a little darker than I anticipated so very fair skins shall probably find the setting powders too dark but for me, I can definitely wear them all and shall be even better for the summer time. The blushers and highlight powders for me are the stars of this show as the shades are absolutely stunning. In fact, my new favourites and I have loved Luminous Flush for many years now, so it may have been thrown off the top spot. 

These travel friendly palettes are everything you need to crate and finding a flawless looking face and not many other palettes can offer that. I know it isn't cheap but it really is worth investing in because you get serious value for money in my opinion. Do not let this one slip but should you need a lighter shade range or you can't track this one down then look into the Vol 4 palette as I know already I am going to have to buy it before it goes! It contains 4 bestselling and 2 new shades PLUS the bets thing of all, the limited edition metallic pink compact which is what threw me as I wanted the casing, I wont lie. It has me. 

So onto the thing that gets me very excited and is my passion, LIPSTICK! 

HOURGLASS  Holiday Collection 2018, Confession Lipstick Set
CONFESSION REFILLABLE HOLIDAY LIPSTICK SET - £31 each (*LIMITED EDTION) (here!)
Again, a *limited edition lipstick set* which contains the 3 best selling shades from the Confession line. The slimline applicator is stunning already but the metallic pink sets it off even more. This was kindly sent over and it is pure love and addiction! 

HOURGLASS  Holiday Collection 2018, Confession Lipstick Set
HOURGLASS  Holiday Collection 2018, Confession Lipstick Set
The 3 Shades 
• I WOKE UP - dusty rose (lightest shade) 
• IF ONLY - deep rose (mid tone shade)
• I CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT = red currant (darkest shade)
HOURGLASS  Holiday Collection 2018, Confession Lipstick Set
I have in fact already posted a full review about these amazing lipsticks from when they launched last year as they are some of my favourites to date due to their amazing creamy texture, strong pigmentation, long wear satin finish, the ability to refill and the fact that they got into any small handbag for any evening. They are spot on, just lip smacking perfection. If you want to read that full original review click here

The good news is that even though this set of three is limited edition, each shade is sold separately so if don't want all three, you can still select a favourite and purchase all year round! 

HOURGLASS  Holiday Collection 2018, Confession Lipstick Set
I love that I can now interchange the other shades that I own into this pink casing or swap back to gold should I need it to match a handbag say ... just so my thing! 

HOURGLASS  Holiday Collection 2018, Confession Lipstick Set
Hourglass Confession; Shade - If Only
Hourglass Confession; Shade - I Can't Live Without
As above, I am loving all three shades but these two in particular are really unique and unlike any others in my collection and so perfect if you want to warm up a nude or berry tone yet not be to over the top.

The saying goes that 'all that glitters is not gold' meaning that not everything that looks precious turns out to be so, but in this very case ... it is true. Mintd Box are giving us all the gift of good skin this month and I for one am very happy.

The phrase sure is appropriate in the beauty world as we all know that we can be persuaded into buying a product because of the pretty packaging, I for one am very guilty of that, yet only for the contents to let you down. This is why as a blogger, I feel big responsibly to make sure that I offer real opinions and advice to make sure this isn't the case for you. One brand that always 'shines' is Mintd Box as they always take the time and effort to seek out those hidden skincare gems. 

This months "All that Glitters" themed box is a showstopper that sees December spoiling our skin rotten. We are after all in a month that oozes glitter, sparkle and festive cheer so bring on the glitz as Mintd Box bring the razzle dazzle so our skin can be invigorated and ready to partaaaaay!

Mintd Box December, All that Glitters

The box design is just stunning and unwrapping it feels very specialbeing some what of a Wizard of Oz super fan, it just screamed 'ruby slippers' to me. It would make the perfect gift for any skincare lover ... as well as yourself of course!

The theme and curation if it's contents are all designed reinvigorate your skin and senses.  "A combination of Mint, Capsicum and Vitamin E will prepare your lips for some mistletoe kissing, a lightweight serum will brighten up your eyes, rich Cocoa Butter will make your hands silky soft  and a mighty potion of antioxidants and vitamins shall lift your complexion so that it radiates a glow". Wow, a Merry Christmas indeed! 

Having tested the contents out myself over the last two weeks, I bring to you good news of your skin being in very good hands; so let's start with the eyes .... 

Mintd Box December, All that Glitters, Oskia Eye Wonder Serum
1. OSKIA Eye Wonder Eye Serum, 10ml (Full Size £50) (here!)
A youth boosting eye serum designed to help tired, restless eyes by brightening and hydrating the entire eye area whilst helping to lessen the appearance of lines and wrinkles. It holds a soothing rose water base to instantly refresh your eyes with a combination of plant bio-actives to brighten and boost collagen production whilst Vitamin B3, Milk Peptides and Hyalrunic Acid lift and smooth. (Suitable for all skin types).

One thing I absolutely love most about this eye serum is the gorgeous gel texture. For me, this is exactly how I want an eye cream to be; lightweight, cooling, soothing, hydrating and easy to apply in application. This ticks every single box. The design of packaging makes this a dream to transport and apply as I really dislike pots of eye cream as I just find them too fiddly. I like a contained pump to keep the ingredients all nice and active yet still control how much you dispense. Talking of which, you don't need to use much of this gel as a little goes a very long way. The gel-serum feels lovely and cool and instantly soothes your eye area which is a god send for me after a long day of staring at a computer screen with my contact lenses in. I can literally feel it getting to work the moment it hits my skin which is why it has become one of my favourites skincare steps to do of late. The formula is hands down perfection being not too watery, or oily and absorbs like a dream so you can apply make-up under your eyes straight away. If you suffer from severe dryness around the eyes you can use this one under an eye cream to reap all the benefits this has to offer. I love trying out new eye treatments as I find I am always looking for better and I would without a doubt purchase this one again which is why I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a really active, hydrating eye serum yet not break the bank. 

Mintd Box December, All that Glitters, Argentum Apothecary Face Oil 
Mintd Box December, All that Glitters, Argentum Apothecary Face Oil 
Mintd Box December, All that Glitters, Argentum Apothecary Face Oil 
2. ARGENTUM APOTHECARY La Potion Twin Enhancing Face Oil, 30ml (Full Size £82)   (here!)
A daily facial oil that uses a blend of 100% natural dry oils including Argan Oil to moisturise, and boosted with Vitamin E to deliver complete anti-oxidant protection from toxins and pollutions which all in all, results in a healthier looking complexion. It is suitable for all skin types, both sexes and all ages and can be used on both the face and neck. It is stated that regular use of this oil will help with reducing the appearance of scarring, redness, eczema and Psoriasis. 

Argentum Apothecary is a brand I fell in love with last month thanks to Mintd Box and once again I find myself loving them all over again. The La Potion Infinie day/night cream has now fast become a firm skincare favoutire of mine as this is a brand that had me all excited with their science and ingredients. Safe to say, I knew they were special because this Face Oil now has me hooked like the cream. It is just wonderful! If you are scared of facial oils being to 'oily or heavy' then this one is none of those things; it is possibly the lightest oil I have ever tried which is why it absorbs beautifully into the skin to leave more of a dry touch effect as opposed to an oily film. Unlike their moisturiser which has a fragrant scent to it which I know some people weren't so keen on, this has zero scent so it will definitely appeal to those who dislike scents in skincare. Once again the luxurious violet glass bottle lets in no direct sunlight so that the ingredients all stay potent and lasts you a good time. This oil is lightweight, hydrating and simply leaves your skin looking healthy and bright. It has made a noticeable difference to my skin over the last few weeks by giving my skin the extra hydration and comfort that it needed from the colder weather. For me there is nothing not to like about this which is why Argentum Apothecary has become a brand that excites me. The only hindrance for some is that yes, their products are a luxury spend but this is why a Mintd Box partnership is so great because this is how you can discover brands you would not have spent out on before. The cost of this entire months box is less then the total cost of this one oil; it's honestly a no brainer!

Mintd Box December, All that Glitters, Odecite Kiss Lip Serum
3. ODACITE Aventurine Kiss Lip Serum, 2ml (Full Size £44(here!)
A 100% natural Lip Serum designed to soothe and soften lips with a triple action serum enriched with Vitamin C, botanical oils, Mint, Capsicum, Vitamin E and Q10 for extreme nourishment and hydration. It also has the ability to help give you a plumper pout, tackle lines and wrinkles and perfect dryness. 

I had heard great reports about this brand and as soon as I read 'lip serum' I was ripping open the box with curiosity because I have tried many lip balms, creams, sticks and glosses but never a serum. I liked the medicinal looking bottle with it's extra luxurious aventurine crystal roller ball applicator. I mean, it doesn't get much more fancier than that! The crystal applicator is there to impart energy and luck as well as to dispense the serum. I am actually someone who loves and believes in the powers of crystal healing so this is a touch I really do like. Once I applied it to my lips, right away I could taste mint (nice) and feel tingling of which I am not a great fan of but for the results I stuck with it. The serum feels very unique; like a lotion meets a balm yet certainly packs a punch as you do feel this getting to work. I love the fact that you can use this serum on its own, over lipstick or as a lip primer as I always like something hydrating for my lips in my 'on the go' make-bag. If you suffer with very dry lips then I think you would benefit massively from using this on a daily basis. This is basically the newest form of anti-ageing treatment for your lips so I really am happy to have this in my stocks. 

Mintd Box December, All that Glitters, NEOM Hand Balm
Mintd Box December, All that Glitters, NEOM Hand Balm
4. NEOM Nourish, Breathe & Calm Hand Balm, 50ml (Full Size £15(here!)
This NEOM de-stressing range is all formulated with natural fragrances designed to make a deep impact on your mind and body to help banish stress. This luxurious hand balm is made from rich Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter and uses a blend of Lavender, Jasmine and Brazilian Rosewood plus 21 other essential oils all designed to de-stress and calm your mind. 

This is simply an experience in a tube. I have spoken time and time again of my love for NEOM. Their products have been by my side through some major life events so I was excited to see them feature once again in this months box. This is not your average hand cream so to get the full benefits from this beautiful scented balm, cup your hands and inhale the scent prior to rubbing it into your palms as this will form part of it's calming result. Even though it contains all those lovely rich butters, the texture is perfect being not too heavy nor thick and absorbs into skin well. NEOM really is one of life's luxuries and I just adore them as a brand. This balm would make a perfect little gift because who isn't stressed these days? For that, NEOM is always a brand I think of. 

Mintd Box December, All that Glitters
The glittery stars of this box for me are (drumroll) ... all of the above as it has been impossible to say anything negative about any of them, but I will say both the Oskia Eye Serum and Argentum Apothecary Face Oil are definitely two skincare stars that I would most certainly re-purchase myself as they are being well used in my bathroom as we speak. 

I think we all need to massively thank the Mintd Box Team and all of the amazing brands involved who are responsible for ending the year with a bang! I mean high end skincare, amazing savings, glitter ... what more could you ask for. It is once again my pleasure to see out a second year with the team as they just shine more and more in my eyes are are a joy to be a part of. I say it every month but Mintd Box really are the best at beauty subscriptions and the only one worth signing up to in my eyes because they really do bring the A-listers and save you serious money!

Following on from my last blog post with gift ideas for body, I have gathered up a collective of make-up products which have been kindly sent in to KelliLash HQ so if you are looking for a few last minute gift ideas, new inspiration for freshening up your own make-up bag or simply ideas of what to target in the sales ....  then have a little look at these beauties. 

This gives me the chance to showcase more of what I have trialling behind the scenes as I have been inundated with some amazing products that I had to tell you all about, some pr gifts, some purchased by myself but all winners
Makeup/Beauty Gift Ideas
MAKE-UP

Makeup gift ideas, MAC Glow Getter set
• MAC COSMETICS - The Glow Getter GOLD Set (£39/€43) (on sale here!)
MAC shall always be a go to for many as the brand appeals to all ages, caters to all spends and are always on trend. I have to say this set here is perfect for all because who doesn't want to glow at Christmas?! This face kit includes a mini size of their famous Skin Finish in the shade Whisper of Guilt, Goldlite Strobe Cream (30ml) and a travel sized 161SES Duo Fibre Face Brush ... and is in fact worth £61! There is also a PINK Version of this same set should you want a choice, or get both, for the price they are a fantastic deal. 
Makeup gift ideas, Bobbi Brown
Bobbi Brown has been as brand that I have got more and more into of late, having purchased many palettes, lipsticks and blushers myself over the last few months which I posted to my Instagram! BB just seem to do get everything right and I find myself really loving exploring their range and just having fun with it because after all that is what make-up should be about. 

Makeup gift ideas, Bobbi Brown Ace of Base
• BOBBI BROWN - Ace of Base Set (£54/€60) (here!)
I was actually in fact gifted this set by BB themselves for no reason at all. Nothing was asked of me but the fact that I LOVE what they sent over means of course I am going to show and tell you all about it. This beautiful Ace of Base set (brilliant name!) contains: the Vitamin Enriched Face Base (50ml), Hydrating Eye Cream (15ml) and Lip Balm Spf 15 all FULL sized and worth £94! All of their best selling hydrating skincare items and designed to restore and replenish radiance so your skin naturally glows. A amazing gift set and great value for money I think you would agree? I have been dying to try the famous Face Base so I am very excited to - I would ear mark this set for yourself! 

Makeup gift ideas, Bobbi Brown
• BOBBI BROWN - Beauty Brush Essentials (£69/€76) & Large Make-up Bag (£29/€32.50) 
Both kindly gifted to me but Bobbi Brown have such a great choice of brush sets online as well as all being sold individually; but the sets hold great savings of course. The quality of these brushes is superb and 100% worth the buy. I especially love gorgeous velvet case in which all these brushes are housed as it really does feel extra special and highly luxurious. 

The Large matte black faux leather makeup bag is amazing. Make-up bags are always too small, or maybe I have too much to out in them, who knows anyhow, this is gigantic and I LOVE it. If you need a decent sized make-up then you need this one. Simple as (here!).

Makeup gift ideas, Fenty Diamond Bomb
• FENTY Diamond Bomb Veil Powder (How many Carats?) (£33/€36.50) (here!)
As soon as I saw this Collection in Sephora, it was in my basket. The Diamond Bomb Veil powder is a diamond dusted highlighter that works as a 3D glitter veil to give you super sparkle for the face and body. I cannot actually capture just how gorgeous this powder and the compact are because it is just so sparkly ..... just like diamonds. Now I am not usually as glitter gal but there was something about this powder that lured me in. It is so finely milled  that it just disperses a super fine glitter to wherever you want it. Perfect for times when you want to be a grown up wearing glitter! This is a perfect gift for anyone because even the box is fancy pants sparkly ..... so maybe get two. 

The Gloss Bomb (£15/€17.50) lip comes in three shades and this one is Diamond Milk, basically the lip version of this powder and it gives your lips the shine of their life. The texture is gorgeous and how I like a gloss to be hence I am a little bit addicted and have been wearing this non-stop; it is just beautiful.


HAIR/NAILS

Makeup gift ideas, Gold Class brush
• AN INCH LONDON, GOLD CLASS Thermal Super Brush (£30/€34) (here!)
An Inch London is a very trendy, stylish and popular London Hair Salon that has it's own range of products and I cannot wait to one day hopefully visit myself soon! Haircare vouchers and products are always a great gift idea for any occasion and if you want something a little different then how about this stunning gold brush! It may not seem like a typical gift but any brush that comes in it's own silk pouch is a worthy one. This is in fact a gold-plated hairbrush designed to speed up your blow dry and add volume and create texture without over heating and damaging your own hair. The vented shape allows for even distribution of hot air without stressing your hair out so this should help to improve the condition of your hair as you use it. You can use it on wet and dry hair and is great to brush through hair masks and detangle etc and on all hair types and extensions too. I have to say this is one clever yet fancy brush and I love it

Makeup gift ideas, Gold Class brush
Just as another idea, you could combine products from other ranges and make a little luxury hair hamper. If you want to stay fancy then the Bardou Dry Shampoo is one of my favourites as it adds a perfume to your hair as well as being an excellent dry shampoo that is not too powdery yet livens up your hair in an instant. My latest love is the Briogeo Deep Conditioning hair mask as it not only smells divine but is a really superb, hydrating hair mask. It is free from all nasties and can be used by all hair types including extensions. I can highly recommend trying these yourself should you be looking for new haircare. 

Makeup gift ideas, Kure Bazaar
Makeup gift ideas, Kure Bazaar
• KURE BAZAAR Nail Polishes (£15/€17) (here!) - L/R: Sienna, Or Rose, KELLY, Parisienne. 
A nail brand that I have been using for some time now and they are fantastic. Kure Bazaar are non-toxic vinyl effect nail lacquers with a 90% natural formula that actually preserves the vitality of you nails and their natural growth. They dry in no time, give your nails super shine and wear amazing well. They have so many stunning shades in their collection and for me they hold that fun factor of say OPI, but are much better in quality in my opinion. It is so nice to know that you can wear polish and have it treat your nails rather than harm it. I have quite a few shades that I adore but these are ones I chosen because they are so appropriate for now. I even have a shade named after me. KELLY, the bright pink! If you are yet to try these polishes then I highly recommend doing so plus they make a perfect gift and scream 'pamper night!'. 


ACCESSORIES
Makeup gift ideas
• BEAUTY BOOKS (here!)
You may notice a few pictured suggestions here as I love having beauty books on my shelf. Facepaint by Lisa Eldridge is the perfect gift for any make-up lover and Radiance by Hanna Sillitoe showcases recipes that all help towards healing your skin from within which is so important. I also recommend Younger by Dr Lancer and Pretty Honest/Pretty Iconic by Sally Hughes, all fantastic reads.


• LILIBETH Brow Shaper (pictured above!) (£14.95/€17 x2) (here!)
I have raved and recommended these time and time again as for me these are like nail files and hair bands, a necessity! If you don't own one then get one. You can read my full review about how to use them (here) but they make the perfect small gift or add on and the limited edition funky designs like this leopard print design really jazzes them up. 

LIPS - Tints/Treats 
Makeup gift ideas, Dr Lipp
• DR LIPP, Nipple Balm (£5.99) & Lip Tints (£6.99) (here on promotion!)
One product, 100 uses! Dr Lipp is the Multi-Award Winning Original Nipple Balm famed for it's muti-uses such as: chapped  lips, sore nips, softens cuticles, conditions eyelashes, works as a glitter glue, after sun, cheek shine, healing sore noses, helping babies bottoms, a shoe shiner ... to name a few! I am a long term fan of this product as it was always a top seller in store when I worked at Space NK. The magic is, it's medical grade Lanolin, a natural moisturiser that is basically the Rolls Royce of Lanolin. It is thick, balmy, hydrating and if you have dry skin anywhere then you really should have one of these on you at all times. There are also tinted versions should you solely want to use on your lips. Dr Lipp is a mini must-have especially as it is so affordable for all that this little tube of magic does for you!

Makeup gift ideas, By Terry 
 • BY TERRY GEM GLOW Baume de Rose Mini Tree Decoration 3g (£20/€22) ((here!))
As already mentioned in my post here, another lip option is the highly luxurious lip balm from By Terry, Baume de Rose; made even more irresistible in the form of a mini tree decoration. A perfect small gift or handbag size for yourself. 

Makeup gift ideas, Rodin Lipstick
 • RODIN x Vanessa Traina (£28/€31) (here!)
Rodin is a brand I have never tried before but the stunning packaging had my interest right away. These two items, kindly sent over are from a new Limited Edition collection, a collaboration with fashion stylist, Vanessa Traina, whose fascination with florals inspired this line. The lip products may look super bright but they are in fact very sheer and have been designed to resemble the effects of crushed petal stains. The lipstick comes in three shades and I have Dahlia, this gorgeous red. They give your lips a soft stain as opposed to full on colour and feel super hydrating as they are in fact infused with Rodin's signature Jasmine and Neroil oils. These for me feel like a glossy lip tint and are sheer yet very buildable but look super pretty on. If you are scared of red then I feel this would help you as it will ease you into seeing more colour on yourself but in the most subtle of ways. The painted design and attention to detail is so beautiful, you shall definitely want to show this one off in your makeup bag.

The Lip and Cheek Oil (£25/€27) (here!) in the shade Granantum is very glossy yet very hydrating with no stickiness or tackiness whatsoever. It has been designed to give a healthy flushed look to your lips and cheeks using Safflower seed and Sunflower seed oils. It is very light weight and just adds a subtle tint of colour and brightness so again a great one for those scared of brights but want a hint of colour. If you suffer from dry lips then this will help being intensely nourishing whilst perking up your complexion at the same time. Keep your eyes peeled to my IG to see them in action!

Enjoy shopping!
