I was thinking outside the box with these odd china cups and saucers that I had stored in the kitchen cupboard. Until now had nowhere to put them or any use for. I love to see vintage things all shabby chic-ly done up, so I was thinking what to do with these.
I have just been sent some of the new fun and exciting products from the lovely people at one stop beauty shop,Mad Beauty . As soon as I seen - The Festive Pucker Ducks (introduced as the only duck you will want on your Christmas table ) I knew my daughter would love these. She still enjoys playing with her yellow bath time duck and her eyes lite up when she seen these fun lip glosses. They are deliciously fragranced with Cherry (Red) or Vanilla (White) and are so cute...
I love the make up bag it has a great design and big enough to fit lots of things inside. It has a waterproof outside, feels nice and padded with a shiny aqua lining. The make up organisers has some great colour eye shadow's inside, I got sent the silver cased one which has the perfect colours for autumn. The shades include lots of browns, golds, bronzes and I'm loving the petrol blue colour. The manicure set comes in this wonderful shiny purple colour and inside is 5 items inside great for keeping your nails and eyebrows in perfect condition on the go. I think these all make great gifts for either a little treat for yourself now or birthday presents and stocking fillers...

What I think of the products
All 3 colour lipsticks I received are the shades I would usually choose for myself. The red is vibrant and great for nights out, pink is adorable for daytime or night and nude is cool for anytime time when you want to add a bit of sparkle to your lips.
The lipstick is light and glides on evenly with a perfect shimmery shine. It is long lasting but rubs off slightly when eating which is understandable.
I will be buying these lipsticks when my supplies are low. They are a quality product at a reasonable price. I would recommend wearing a lip pencil to keep the colour lock in.
The Everlasting foundation is smooth and has amazing coverage, this is the best foundation I have used to date. It gives a flawless look,drys quickly and evenly,feels and looks great on .The colour blended in perfectly with my skin tones,feeling light and great to wear. I would also buy this product and will be looking out for this foundation once my pots are empty.
Oriflame’s Power Shine Satin Lipstick retails at £8.45 in the UK
Oriflame's Long Lasting Foundation £7.95 in the UK

I have just been sent some lovely things from the latest collection by one stop beauty shop Mad Beauty.They have a great range of products that are all very kitsch from chocolate bar soaps to Russian Doll hand creams! They also have a wide range of novelty products under £10 that would make great stocking fillers for Christmas.
