Beauty bits from chrimbo

First off, to the haters, this isn't a bragging post. I just like talking about beauty, non? And as I kindly got some beauty things for christmas, I thought I'd share :)
First up, I got something I'd been wanting for aages: The Antipodes Vanilla Pod Day cream. After using it (everyday since xmas) I think it's lovely and wish I'd got it sooner!
I also got a new Nuxe reve de Miel, as my old one was running a bit low. This has to be my favourite lip balm, it's a bit heavy but so lovely and the best for my lips. I also got the Origins GinZing moisturiser which I haven't tried before. I use the Origins Ginzing eye cream everyday so looking forward to trying this out.
I also got two make up bits: NARS Douceur and Benefit 'They're real' mascara. Both of which I've been wanting for quite a while.
NARS Douceur comes up a little darker than pictured here, but I really like it. it's quite a dusky, dark pinky shade and different from my other fav blush; Deep Throat. I didn't think I'd like the Benefit brush as I'm not a fan of the plastic brushes, but I'm really liking it!

What did you get for Christmas? Or pick up any goodies in the sales? I bought quite a lot in the Zara sale.
p.s apparently GFC is not going to be working soon. So if you'd like to follow me on bloglovin etc., the links are below

  4. You should do a review on the They're Real mascara when you have played with it for awhile, I have heard great things but it would be nice to hear what you think :)
