Things I've Been Using Recently

Emma Hardie Hydrating Lighter Lotion* - a perfect moisturiser for combination/oily skins.  Delivers hydration without feeling greasy and is as good in cold winter months as it is in the summer.
Topshop Without A Clue nail polish - a hugely flattering creamy apricot shade that applies perfectly in one coat.
Fresh Brown Sugar Lip Treatment and Body Cream* - these two come as part of a cute gift set in a lovely gold make up bag.  Would make a lovely Christmas present.  Smells like, well...sugar.  Leaves skin and lips feeling like silk.  Dreamy.  Currently only available in the UK from their London store, unfortunately.
Sparkly evening eyes using Shiro Cosmetics pigements - I like to use a light shade underneath the eye and darker shades on the lid.  Don't worry about fall out.  It all adds to the fairy look.
Barefoot SOS hand cream* - I am extremely fussy about hand creams.  The only two I like are the Clarins Hand & Nail Treatment and the Nivea SOS ones so this was met with a Hirons-esque eyebrow when I received it.  However, it's really very nice.  Very moisturising, smells fresh and, crucially, isn't greasy.  It's now on my desk and is used once a day, only because I don't need to use it more.  It's that good.
And finally, what would the festive season be without a little glitter?  Collection 2000 have some fantastic glitter gel liners (this one is the gold one) that look very pretty on the upper or lower (probably not both) lashline.  Or you can waste time and product writing on your arm, like me.  That's way more fun.

I want to know what things are currently tickling your fancy please.  I want more pretty things to play with.

Items marked with * are PR samples.  Everything else I purchased.
