A little pot of Kiehl's goodness

Until recently, using an eye cream has never been something that I have stuck to religiously. But being 23 and wanting to prevent ageing as much as possible, I decided it was time to invest in a new eye cream. I have always had trouble with concealer creasing around my eye area and just not sitting right, even when applying an eye cream underneath my makeup. After doing a bit of research, I realised that my under eye area was dehydrated and in need something rich and moisturising. Say hello to the Kiehl's Creamy Eye Treatment. I picked this little pot of goodness up after trying out a few samples and I can honestly say it's bloomin brilliant! Since using it, my concealer sits SO much better on my skin, without caking or creasing like it used to. It's thick and moistusrising, keeping my under eye area hydrated and as a result, helping to prevent signs of ageing in this area.

At £20 it's not the cheapest cream out there, but I would have no problem repurchasing this over and over again! A little really does go a long way and this has definately become a holy grail skincare product.

What's your favourite eye cream?

90's Nudes -Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Colour

Bobbi Brown Creamy Matte Lip Colour in 'Soft Nude'*
Rimmel 1000Kisses Lipliner in 'Tiramisu'- £2.99

The 90's nude lip has been one of this years big make up trends, encouraged by Kylie Jenners signature pumped up pout look. Whether they are surgically enhanced or just a case of clever make up skills, there's no doubt that she has been massive inspiration for this seasons key make up look.

I was recently gifted this lipstick in a goody bag and i've gotta say, it's my new favourite lippie! A creamy texture with a matte finish, this lipstick really is the perfect formula as it is also super long lasting. I paired it with the Rimmel lipliner for a little definition and to give that fuller lip effect. If you're looking for a deep browny nude to add to your collection, I would definitely recommend checking out this little number (and the other gorgeous colours in the range too). 

For £19.50 they're not the most purse friendly, but would be a lovely christmas present for a friend...or even for yourself :)
