Hey Beauties!!! It’s that time again, I can’t believe we’re on episode 7 of Cuppa&Chat!! I had no idea so many people would actually be interested in writing with me!! This week we have the beautiful Charity from Mornings On Macedonia. Being Christmas has just passed, we decided to swap blogs on our fave makeup items that we had for Christmas, so don’t forget to pop over to her blog to check out my top fave!! Get you cuppa and biscuits ladies and gents!!!
So I mainly blog about interior design and all things home decor, but I thought it would be fun to venture out and blog about something new today. I have always loved make up and I definitely enjoy trips to Ulta strolling the aisles seeing all the beautiful products they offer. So I thought I should share with you guys some of the products that I love the most and use daily. I got a few new, fun items for Christmas so I figured now would be a perfect time to share them all with you. I hope you enjoy!
Urban Decay: Naked Eyeshadow Palettes
I have always loved Urban Decay’s collection of eyeshadow palettes. I love how they incorporate several colors in each one, with some being matte and glitter as well. It’s always a good mix and I am currently crushing on the Honey palette that I got for Christmas. It is full of rich, golden hues and I feel like the colors really compliment my eye color well. Some of their palettes are a little too much for me. I have gotten them all and so far this one, Naked and Naked 2 are my top three favorites. I gravitate towards more neutral and brown colors so I believe that’s why those are my favorites. But I would definitely recommend that you try out their new Honey one too!
Stila: Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick
I was never a lipstick person until I tried this lipstick. I got a small tube of it as a sample awhile ago, and ever since I tried it, I have not gone back! This is definitely my go to lipstick and I use it all the time. And just like the name states, it really does stay all day! The only downside to it is right after you apply it, sometimes a little will get on your teeth so be sure to check your smile before going out! But other than that minor detail, I love them and they really do work so well. My favorite colors are Patina and Perla.
Stila: Stay All Day Liquid Eyeliner
Going along with the stay all day liquid lipstick, I love Stila’s liquid eyeliner too! I started off using pencil eyeliner for years and I can’t believe I didn’t start using liquid eyeliner until a couple of years ago. It is so much easier to apply and much less messy too. You don’t have to keep sharpening it and it also lasts a long time. I thought with it being liquid it would dry out quicker, but it honestly last me awhile and I am very pleased with this product too.
I also use my beauty blender daily. I always use these little sponges to apply my foundation. I don’t like using my fingers and I find that using these blenders helps to apply your make up more evenly. It looks more natural and fully covered than verses when just using your fingers alone to apply it. I also use Urban Decay Stay Naked: Weightless Liquid Foundation and The Velvetizer which is also a loose powder from Urban Decay as well. If you haven’t noticed already, I am a big Urban Decay and Stila brand fan!
Okay, enough make up talk. Now to discuss everything I love to do for some “me time!” I am obsessed with bath bombs. There is nothing better than soaking in a hot tub after a long day at work in my opinion. And, if you add an extra touch such as a great-smelling bath bomb, it’s even better! I love to order my sets off of Amazon. They have plenty to choose from and a variety of different ones so I am sure you can find you a great set too. Most of them are very reasonably priced as well. My sweet hubby ordered me several sets for Christmas and I am enjoying all of them so far! Here is one in particular that I have loved.
Going along with the me time discussion, every now and then I love to use face masks. I just feel extra pampered soaking in the tub with a face mask on too. I have never really been a face mask person until my husband ordered me some for Christmas to try out and now I am hooked. He got a great set off of Amazon and it includes regular clay masks, peel-off clay masks, gel cream masks, and charcoal mud masks too. It comes with a total of 12 different masks that you can try. I have it linked here if you’re interested in seeing the set that I am talking about. I think my favorite one is the peel-off clay mask. My skin just feels so soft and clean after doing it! If you’ve never tried a face mask before, I would definitely recommend that you try one out and see if you love it just as much as I do!
Lastly, I want to talk about my favorite nail products with you guys. If you haven’t heard of Colorstreet nails before, you are basically missing out! They are 100% nail polish strips that you stick right on your fingernail and once you apply it, there is no dry time! They are amazing! I love to paint my own nails but I find that using regular nail polish does not last me long at all. I am a dental hygienist and I am constantly washing my hands so that doesn’t help. But with these Colorstreet nails, they last me over two weeks! I shared way more in depth about this product and how you can order some too if you want to try them out over on my blog, so click here if you wanna know more about this amazing product!
Thankyou so much Charity for sharing these products with us!! I think I’ve only ever used one Stilla product like ever!! I definitely need to try some out!! How about you beauties, have you tried any of these?? Let me know in the comments!! What beauty products did you have for christmas??
Much Love – Mrs Slee-Jones xx

I am a lover of all things home decor and coffee! I love to go out thrifting and antique hunting to find the best deals and pieces for my home. I am a new home decor blogger (I have only been going at it for a few months now) but I first got started on Instagram a little over a year ago. What started out as a fun little hobby for me has turned into a huge passion of mine and I would love to make this career one day. I would love for you guys to follow along with me to get to know me even more and I appreciate the opportunity to be a guest blogger here today!
