Favourite Christmas Decorations!

A slight different post from me but I love to see how people decorate their houses and trees so thought I would showcase my top 5 current Christmas decorations on my tree! I have collected my decorations for over 6 years now and each has a memory or meaning.

Each shade is named after a Gwen Stefani song which I think is something I adore! Makes me want to put on her album! Each shade is pigmented and buttery, I adore the quality of this palette, and have managed to use the majority of the shades, its such a beautiful palette to play around with and is a must have for any beauty lover!
 
The packaging looks high end with its gold detailing, white background and black polkadot effect on the front. It has a magnetic closing mechanism which is a must have otherwise it can get pretty messy! The palette feels quite heavy but is handbag friendly in size.
 
I cant recommend this enough and am so pleased with the quality and packaging, it will be living on top on my dressing table!
 
Have you tried this?

Whirl MAC Lipstick

So we all talk about the Kylie Jenner famous lip colour with people speculating what shade she uses and Whirl has been one of the lip colours she uses so when I saw a lipstick out in the shade I had to grab it.

Whirl is a matte finish so lasts a good part of the day, it isnt too drying unlike the retro matte range. Whirl is a brown shade with a mauve hint to it, it certainly looks like the Kylie Jenner lip colour that is well known around the world. The colour would suit most skin tones and is perfect day or night, it is now in my top 5 MAC lipstick shades.
