Christmas haul with Glossier 🎄

Christmas haul with Glossier review

I decided to treat myself this festive season with a little Glossier beauty haul gift from me, to me.

I have been tempted by these products for a while now and with Christmas around the corner, here’s what I decided to get:

Glossier You

I’ve wanted Glossier You for ages now. What drew me in was the idea that it seems to adapt depending on the wearer.

Firstly, its top note is a spicy pink pepper. Secondly, we have the heart of the perfume, woodsy and warm ambrette seeds, and ambery ambrox. Finally, a floral iris to complete the scent.

I really like it on. On me, Glossier You smells floral and very fresh. It’s an extremely complimentary perfume, especially in the daytime.

Futuredew

Futuredew is an oil-serum hybrid that leaves you with an enviable natural dewy glow. Packaged within a gorgeous holographic bottle, it’s used as the last step of your normal skincare routine and promises to last up to 12 hours.

Futuredew is full of nourishing oils and plant-based extracts to keep your skin moisturised and bright.

I have noticed an immediate difference and a bit of product goes a long way. My skin looks brighter and happier!

Cookie Butter Balm Dotcom

I was so psyched to try the limited edition Cookie Butter Balm Dotcom. This golden buttery lip balm offers a speculoos taste alongside a sparkling caramel shimmer.

Balm Dotcom hydrates your lips due to its formulation of antioxidants and natural emollients, such as castor oil, beeswax, and lanolin.

It’s sweet, spicy, and ultimately, delicious.

Boy Brow

I’ve bought Bow Brow in shade brown a few times now and I love it. It’s the perfect daytime eyebrow pomade. It ensures fluffy and defined brows with a buildable formula.

The brushable pomade is a creamy way that holds your eyebrow hairs in place delicately without clumping.

This conditioning formula contains oleic acid, lecithin, and soluble collagen.

It is available in five variants, including:

  • Blonde
  • Brown
  • Black
  • Auburn
  • Clear

You can get Boy Brow, Cookie Butter Balm Dotcom and Futuredew as a set, saving £9.

Flowerbomb Viktor & Rolf

Flowerbomb Viktor & Rolf perfume review

Flowerbomb Viktor & Rolf review

Viktor & Rolf”s Flowerbomb of 2005 has got to be one of the nicest floral smelling perfumes on the  market.
It is my all time favourite fragrance. Holding a place upon my dresser in its exquisite multi-faceted, diamond inspired, bottle for over three years now.

So, what do I think of Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf?

Flowerbomb is a sophisticated scent, an mille-fleur explosion, oozing with femininity. Its top notes include fresh green tea and fragrant bergamot.
Like the previously reviewed Alien by Thierry Mugler, the perfume is dominated by the richly feminine sambac jasmine. The heart of Flowerbomb also contains a floral mix of the Dutch centifolia rose, sweet freesia and the tropical cattleya orchid, as sweet as any flower.
The base notes are a contrasting mix of musk, patchouli and sweet powder. The musk aiding the staying power of the fragrance. Flowerbomb is available in eua de parfum and eau de toilette, the concentrated EDP had an incredible staying ability. The cheaper, but equally as exquisite EDT, shares its impressive lingering nature but for the sake of a few pounds its worth opting for the EDP. The patchouli promotes Flowerbombs oriental scent, acting as a background to the floral setting as the powder leaves the skin soft to the touch and smelling glamorous.
 Just writing this makes me want to splash out on another bottle and I advise you sample it also!

Alien Thierry Mugler

ALIEN THIERRY MUGLER PERFUME

Alien Thierry Mugler review

So, I  recently got my hands on the gorgeous Alien by Thierry Mugler.

This edition is a gorgeous eau de parfum 15ml refillable stone. Amethyst in colour, this jewel inspired bottle is multi-faceted and protected by golden claws.

Looking rather expensive and undeniably luxurious, it is truly unique addition to any perfume lovers dresser.

So, what do I think of Alien by Thierry Mugler?

Alien is strong, distinctive and rich. The ingredients include jasmine sambac, cashmeran wood and white amber and the combination is bewitchingly exotic. Although floral, the wood and amber scents overpower.

The smell is sensual and is more of a evening scent, lasting as long as you do on a night out! For the day time I prefer to stick to something a little less sophisticated and a little more floral and fruity (think CKIN2U for her ).

Alien is a must buy and a classic since its début in 2005. The top note is the sambac jasmine, while its heart is taken by the cashmeran and solar notes. The base is left to the white amber, a mix that is exotic and breathtaking.

Although a tad more expensive, Alien is definitely worth it! Buy it here  and give in to its charm, you will be the belle of the ball!
