Bloomingdales Exclusive Chanel Fragrance Wardrobe - $110 (really how lovely is this!)
|(Not the best representation of the shade - it's quite abit darker than this and alot more metallic).|
Finally got my nails on some sparkly Nail Crystals from Girls With Attitude for a very affordable price of £3.00. I must admit the smaller crystals can be abit tricky to pick up - but I've found a pair of tweezers sorts that out or pushing them to the edge of the clear plastic backing.
I know these will be perfect for really Christmass-y sparkly nude nails or just one on the bottom of each nail.
For £3.00 you really can't go wrong!
But once I start putting up the decorations I'm thinking of hanging these with red ribbon from a window.
Anyone else still indulging in abit of Christmas shopping for one?
Ofcourse feel free to tell me what you will be doing this year.

I have to say a big, big thank you too Fiamma and I really hope your enjoy your products just as much as I'm enjoying mine!
So I thought it would be worthwhile to explain the process and the actual feeling of little teethless fish sucking at your toes!
But now there's Appy Feet were you can sit back and rest your tired, achey feet for 15-30 minutes while the little Garra Rufa fish get to work! Then walking out feeling refreshed (has to be better than sitting on a bench to get the strength to shop some more)!
As for the shop itself it's really open plan and while I was there lots of people freely came in to have a look at what it was about and definitely weren't pounced apon or asked in they had an appointment (as no appointment is ever needed, you can just drop in while out shopping).
Anyway onto the treatment itself...
All in all this was a really different experience, abit odd but very cool!
Other than the catch snapping off and cutting my finger, I love this product!
The packaging suggests this can be use individually as a brow highlight, eyeshadow or used with a fluffy brush for an all over glow/bronzer.
I'd say 'Cherub' is the most blusher like palette out of the three to pick from..the other two being more bronzer based.
I have to say I've been loving all the shades mixed together, the golden tones to it are really lovely (which hopefully I've captured in the swatch below) and catch the light beautifully on the tops of the cheekbones - however it would of been handy if the second shade was down at the bottom so that you could miss it out if you wanted just a flushed glowey look.
As for using these as eyeshadows I think both the 2nd and 4th shade work perfectly well as eyeshadows.
Ignoring the cheap price and just focusing on just the product I think this is very comparable to the blushers & bronzers by Sleek and Barry M. Just really pigmented, soft and basically lovely.
George Under Eye Concealer Pen £3.00
For £3 I think this is amazing value for money as alot of the highstreet versions of the highly rated Touche Eclat cost around £6-8.
The concealer itself it is quite yellow toned - so great for dark shadows (also good for hiding any blue/red veins on the eyelids) it also gives good coverage... however my only critisism would be that if does have quite a strange smell to it. Almost a lemony scent that's just abit odd! But definitely something I've got over.
|Swatch in Shade 02 Medium|
As for the consistency it's actually really nice, almost hydrating and non-cakey and leaves the skin around the eyes not feeling heavy so I'm sure it would work well with all skin types.This also works well on spots and blemishes if you are looking for more of a sheer coverage than a normal concealer.
All in all this is a good coverage concealer pen that's worth £3 of any ones money!
I really hope this is a glimpse of great things to come from George Makeup!
