Some Christmas Crackers

I'm feeling very festive today, and wanted to blog about some brilliant Christmas cosmetics that I have been using recently. 

First up is the Ciate Sequin Manicure. Ciate make some fabulously, fun products, including their famous caviar manicure, but this new set makes your nails look fantastically festive, with mini sequins in all different colours. Fifi's eyes nearly popped out of her head when I gave it a go this weekend. I used the silvery toned set, called Super Duper, and although a little fiddly to apply, it looks brilliant!

Chanel can always be relied on to bring out some gorgeous make up for the Christmas season, and this year is no exception. Their Christmas 2012 range is packed full of lustrous warm tones to pep up the dullest of complexions, with a sprinkle of sparkle for good measure. I adore the nail varnish in Malice (a deep metallic red), and the Illusion D'Ombre in Apparence (a sparkly gold that looks incredible on, with simple black eyeliner and lashings of mascara).

If they all seem a little too Christmassy for you, Bobbi Brown have just launched the most delicious collection called Caviar and Oyster. Described as tough luxe, the palette I've just bought is a gorgeous combination of soft pinks and creams, with deep greys and soft neutrals, that would suit almost any complexion. The luminous skin enhancer brings a subtle glow to your cheekbones, which is to die for!

Finally, to really get me in the mood for Christmas, I like nothing more than making my house smell festive. This year I am addicted to Diptyque's Oliban, which smells deeply of Frankinsence and gives off the most beautiful soft blue light from its pretty glass container.
