A frenzied swatch-fest at the Bobbi Brown counter recently has left me lusting after, in no particular order, Cosmic Raspberry lipstick, Stone and Heather Shimmer eyeshadows, Apricot blusher and the Lip Treatment Shine in Coral. Santa, if you're reading and want something to do between now and next Christmas....CALL ME.
I've been enjoying this rather beautiful Estee Lauder palette very kindly gifted to me by one Madame Lippie. The taupe shade (top right) is my favouritest.
Another stellar offering from my King of Candles, Mr Jonathan Ward. Kartushya*, from his new Russian collection, is the ideal accompaniment to these chilly winter nights. Just add vodka and a fur hat.
This shatter/glitter topcoat from 17 is quite nice layered over a dark polish, in this case OPI William Tell Me About It.
My perfume of choice at the moment (besides oils from Haus of Gloi and For Strange Women) is L'Agent by Agent Provocateur. I first discovered this in a Boudoir Privé box* about four months ago and bought a full size bottle shortly after (proof, I suppose, that these schemes can work well). L'Agent is warm, floral and deeply sexy. I even fancy myself a bit when I wear it.
The lip balm I've found myself using the most recently has been the Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment*. Love the packaging, love the SPF, love the sweet (not sickly) scent, love that my lips have been flake-free all winter.
A trio of body lotions from Paintbox Soapworks. I love the consistency (very light but deeply moisturising) but I didn't select great scents, for me. The Gold, Frankincense & Myrrh is quite nice, particularly festive, but the others just smell grim on me. As such, they are currently used only at night pre-onesie wearing. Mmm, what an image.

Any products you've been loving recently? It was my birthday on Christmas Eve and I was the extremely fortunate recipient of a Clarisonic so expect a review on that soon. I already think of it as my favourite product of the year...
Products marked with * are PR samples. The rest of this loot was purchased by moi.
