Last Minute Festive Lovers

There are some people out there, myself included who love leaving their gift shopping until Christmas Eve. Certain factors can contribute to this decision to pound the pavements picking up presents for your friends and loved ones such as work and hangovers. Others just enjoy the last minute dash and picking up some pre sale bargains.

I have tried on endless occasions to get a head start but my post alcohol mood would not allow me. Therefore, today’s post features one high street store that has all things beauty under one roof making the last minute rush a little easier. If you’re shopping for a female who loves lippie, then the hip beauty concession at Topshop has a large variety to choose from and purse friendly prices.

I wanted to take some pretty pictures of the products with my Christmas tree and then I will show you some swatches of them. Okey dokey? 😉





Let the product run through begin! The prettiness is just too much! 💕

OK, so starting with the lipstick pencil or bullet as it is called, this is great for any of your friends or family who are always on the move. I have recently made the switch to purchasing lipsticks in the pencil form as they are incredibly easy to use. Call me lazy, but when I am in a rush, I immediately reach for one. Topshop have a variety of shades to choose from, I personally love a bold lip so I have opted for their ‘Get Me Bodied’ (Beyonce tribute! ) colour. It has a matte finish which I adore and the colour still moisturises your lips when wearing it.


I’m all about a little sparkle during the Christmas holidays. It’s cliché and I absolutely love it. This gorgeous little tree decoration nail polish would make the perfect gift or stocking filler for a little sister or niece. Again, they come in a variety of shades and are very purse friendly! I have tested it out as a topcoat on my nails, but it can be worn solo if preferred.


Everyone loves a good gift set. For the buyer, it is a sense of a bargain and for the receiver it is a sense of feeling loved with pretty products. This next set that I’m going to show you is now reduced to £6 which is such a steal. The lipstick and blush duo is always a winner during the holiday season. Us ladies love trying out our new products and make up looks for New Year’s Eve. The soft coral blush (head over heels) in this set will complete its partner in crime lipstick in the shade wicked perfectly.



Last but not least, the foundation. I wore this little beauty last weekend to test it out and I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. First of all I need to talk about the silk finish. My god it felt amazing! I honestly have never felt a foundation leave this feeling on my skin. It was heaven. The coverage is medium build but with an almost no make up look. It feels incredibly light in the skin and would make a great gift for those who are just starting out or prefer the ‘no make up look’. I didn’t swatch the foundation as everyone’s skin tone is different.


Have I helped you last minute shoppers out? I hope I have. If you do head to Topshop to pick up some these of these products, you’ll be happy to hear that a few on them are on sale! 😋

Can you believe that it is Christmas Eve already! I’ll not be blogging for a few days over festive season, a much needed break is essential. However, stay tuned to my Instagram where you can view all of my daily happenings and the odd glass of Prosecco!

I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Thank you for all of your love and support over the year, you really are the best! ❤
