Impulse Body Mists*

I hadn't used anything from Impulse in years before these mists came into my life. And tbh, I wasn't expecting to like them as much as I do. But I'm obsessed - like rly tho.

They each smell really fit [like, to the point where I'm struggling to pick a favourite] & their fragrances are powerful, long-lasting and comparable to the effects of wearing a perfume. Just stacks cheaper! They're all quite sophisticated, grown-up scents and the bottles are really beautifully designed too; as a bonus. I'm really pleasantly surprised by them.

The four scents you see here are:

- Impulse Go Get Glitter Melted Candy Unicorn Dust Mist, 150ml - LIMITED EDITION, EXCLUSIVE TO SUPERDRUG [AND REDUCED THERE ATM TOO.] Smell-wise - this spray is pretty sweet; with warm vanilla undertones. 

Impulse Go Get Glitter Coconut Spritz Body Mist, 150ml [probably my current fave- LIMITED EDITION, EXCLUSIVE TO SUPERDRUG [AND REDUCED THERE ATM TOO.] A hard fragrance to describe; sorta like, the perfect blend of coconut & musky masculinity. Its fragrance reminds me of nights out in uni and I can’t get enough. 10/10 would bang.

- Impulse Sophie Hannah Body Mist Mermaid Waves + Peachy Paradise, 150ml - LIMITED EDITION, REDUCED AT BOOTS. I do really like Sophie, I watch her Insta tutorial videos all the time, so I was game as a badger to have a sniff of her spray and see what her signature scent would be. And I liked it, yeno. It reminds me a little bit of my fave ever all time perfume; Hugo Boss The Scent For Her... just a trillion times cheaper. Fair play, Soph 🙌

- Impulse Helen Anderson Body Mist Violet Palms + Neon Nights, 150ml - LIMITED EDITION, REDUCED AT BOOTS. Not gonna lie, am defo not down with the kids and I don't know who our Helen is - but her spray smells mighty fine. Violet Palms + Neon Nights smells slightly Parma Violet-esque; with a fruity kick.

Kiss Nails, Lashes & Adhesive

Is a Christmas Gift Guide even a Christmas Gift Guide if it doesn't have a few bits from Kiss slipped in it? Whether you decide to browse their bangin' range of nails or lashes; their MASSIVE collection of styles, shapes and colours will leave you a bit gobsmacked... and your lucky recipient buzzing their tits off.

When it comes to lashes, I always say the bigger the better at Christmas [and New Year.] And Kiss' 5th Avenue Collection lashes could NOT be any bigger, fuller or more dramatic if they tried. They're beautiful

Kiss' press on and glue on false nails are also the perfect item to have around in the Christmas / Boxing Night / NYE party season rush; for professional, salon-looking manicures even at the last minute. Cos you never know when the gals are gonna suggest a few [hundred] wines, under the context of 'F*CK IT, IT'S CHRISTMAS!' And you gotta have them fingernails on fleek for the 'Gram.

Pretty much most [if not 99% of] Kiss lashes come with their own lil tube of adhesive included; but they also sell a bigger, vegan friendly tube full of rly great lash glue which lasts for ever and works really well; if you want some.  This stuff is defo a good shout / suggestion of something to slip into the stocking of the false lash enthusiast in ya life; we can never get enough lash glue. It's like our  equivalent of crack.

Leighton Denny's Modern Bohemia Collection Nail Polishes - this one's in the shade Dream Catcher*

I love the quality, variety and design of Leighton Denny's range; definitely one of my standout nail brands from 2018. LD's Modern Bohemia Collection is full of metallics, shimmers and other vampy shades perfect for this time of year - & ideal to accessorise your NYE outfit with, too. 

This particular shade [Dream Catcher] is the exact kinda oxblood colour I'm all about during the colder months; with an iridescent, holographic sorta finish that makes it a bit fancy. I dig it.

Misslyn Lip Candy Palette, Red Kiss Edition

I featured this fab Red Kiss Palette in a recent Misslyn brand focus post [which you can read here] buttttt it's just too perfect [in its packaging, product, colour and pricetag] to not slip into this guide too. 

The red lippies it contains are all dead wearable, super pretty and surprisingly proper long lasting. If you click the link above & head to read my review post, you can check out ma swatches of the colours themselves; if you like xox

This stuff legit smells like a dream. It's gorgeous. The body wash  itself is Paraben-Free, Gluten-Free, 100% Vegan & THC-Free; which ensures its suitability for pretty much anyone you're buying for this Christmas

Much as we moan about getting smellies and bath stuff under the tree, I know that I for one secretly really enjoy dis; as the pamper sesh between Xmas, New Year and going back to work is very very real and 100% sponsored by said goodies. A lovely, luxurious treat for a loved one; from a eco-friendly, upcoming brand. What's not to like?

BPerfect Lip Kit in Shade Cheeky*

I have a few of these amazing BPerfect lip kits - but for a Christmas guide, you legit can't go wrong including a classic, statement RED; can ya? This kit gives you such a bright, sassy & fiery festive colour too - it's perfect!

Inspired by Irish makeup artist Ellie Kelly; these fab kits slay HARD. Included in the set is a trio of proper fit lip-perfecting products; each pigmented AF and which can be mixed & matched in different ways for a unique finish. 

The lip liner and satin finish lipstick in the kit are both a corally, classic red [and so incredibly rich, they're fab] and the highlighting lipgloss is a beautiful gold shimmer. Can be used as a kit to 'get the look' or separately.

Norvell's Fake Tanning Products*

Norvell's range of fake tanning products are a new brand I've been lucky enough to try out this year - and I've been impressed by what I've seen and used so far. I like the fact that their collection is so extensive; including exfoliating tan removing / prep scrubs and sprays to prepare your skin for the best possible tanning scenario. 

Used by the celebs in Strictly for a deep yet natural glow, I reckon Norvell should be on ya Nice List and under plenty more trees this year. Everyone needs a reliable bottle of fake tan over the Christmas Party Season. I really like their Mousse products; as they're easy to use and give an instant colour-guide.
