Product of the Week: It was only at the beginning of the week I sifted through my stash of red lipsticks for the ultimate edit but now there's a new kid on the block in the form of the NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Red Square; a rich orange toned hue (see me sporting it here) and definitely my kind of colour. Not only do these pencils have incredible staying power, NARS really couldn't have chosen a better name as the word 'velvet' sums up the texture to a tee. I need more.

Should Have Gone Back to Purchase: The By Terry Ombre Blackstar in Brown Perfection. After a good swatch session in Space NK this creamy textured eye crayon which a rich chocolate brown hue proved not only hard to get off my hand but out of my head as well.

Watch of the Week: Once again I'll be shamelessly plugging this weeks edition of Vlogmas (see Part Three here or below) but there have been a host of festive themed videos popping up in my subscription box that I can't get enough of, including Lily's Cosy Winter Bedtime Routine, Sammi's Mince Pie Recipe and Suzie's Christmas Edition Flat Tour. Note: these go excellently with a cup of tea and a warm blanket.
