Essence Advent Calendar 2017 Day 1 - 7

Hi guys. Happy Monday . Sorry for being MIA for a two almost three weeks on the blog . As I mentioned in my last post - my gran was in ICU and sadly she passed away the same day as my last post. I was extremely close to my gran - so  I needed a little break from social media and blogging - but I'm finally back again. 

This year I got another Essence Advent Calendar for myself and a Lego on for my son Alex. If you follow me on Instagram , Twitter or Facebook I open up and share the calendars every morning on there. Today I will share what the goodies was in the first week of my Essence calendar. 

If there is any of these products you want a review on - feel free to mention them in the comments below. 

Day 1 - Essence 4-1 Nail File : This is one of those cute 4-1 nail files that has a side to shorten , shape , smooth and polish your nails. I like the Festive designs on this - it's pretty cute for doing your nails this time of year. 
Day 2 - Essence I love Trend Nailpolish in Me & My Snowflake : Now if you know me - you know this is such a Lynette colour. I have worn this colour the whole of last week - and this colour lasts amazingly well on me . I did a mani on Instagram  HERE if you want to see the colour in action. But *swoon* this colour stole my heart. 
Day 3 - Essence Longlasting Lipstick in I am Yours ! : Firstly - how cute is the name. This is a gorgeous everyday colour I can see myself reaching for a lot. I love Essence lipsticks and I'm sure this one will be no different. 

Day 4 - Essence Mini Gift Bags : My gorgeous white background photo sadly dissapeared for some odd reason - but look how cute these mini gift bags are. I will be using them for gifts this year but they are sooo stunning.

Day 5 - Essence Heart Shaped Cosmetic Sponges : I've been eyeing these forever in my local Dischem - so I was really happy they were included in the calendar. I will most certainly use these heart shaped beauties soon. 
Day 6 - Essence I love Extreme Volume Mascara : I love Essence mascara - and this one is a favourite. I use the waterproof version in Summer - and this mascara stays on even after swimming and a long day in the sun. This version is just as amazing . And I am excited to have another one in my collection. 
Day 7 - Essence I love Nailpolish - Hohoho My Love
Again - how cute is the name. This is a bright fuchsia pink nail polish - I'm sure this will be another gorgeous colour. I will be sharing a swatch on Instagram and Twitter soon - so keep an eye out if you want to see this colour in action.

I'm also doing a December Photo a Day challenge as well as the last 4 weeks of the 52WeeksNailChallenge over on my social media  - so if you want to take a look what I'm doing there. 

How is YOUR December so far ??

  10. I love those gift bags actually. If I get an advent calendar I don't know if I'd be able to wait up until Christmas. I might open them all at once. Too tempting. Haha
