Here are the things which make my Christmas complete...
1) Listening to Boney M's Christmas songs, especially Little Drummer Boy
I won't be updating my blog until the new year so I wish everybody a lovely Christmas and an amazing New Year!
This is now my go-to kit for eyebrows, it's so quick and easy. The angled brush made it a breeze creating perfect arched eyebrows, the wax was creamy and easy to apply and adding the setting powder meant my brows were kept in place throughout the day. Overall I love the finish this kit gives my brows, they're left looking fuller, thicker and more defined. I also think this gives a much more natural look than Rimmels' eyebrow pencil.

I like the packaging, very compact and...well, sleek!
Available in Light, Medium and Dark to cater for a variety of skin tones (I purchased the Light one), the kit is priced at £5.99, amazing value for 14g of product. The little leaflet included instructs on how to contour three different areas; cheeks, nose and eyes, which is handy for girls who are new to contouring.
I'd been wanting a powder highlighter to replace my liquid one for the winter months so this was a perfect find. With just the right amount of shimmer this gives a beautiful glow to the skin and a luminous finish. The contour shade is completely matte and easy to blend, leaving defined cheekbones. This has now become a staple part of my everyday makeup routine and replaced my Barry M Natural Dazzle bronzer as a favourite.
Has anybody else tried this kit?
I love the packaging, very girly and boudoir-esque.The pack contains 5 inserts in varying sizes (although the picture only shows four, I misplaced one, oopsie!) with the smallest inserts meant for creating a little quiff. I was little alarmed at first sight, these things didn’t seem to be very inconspicuous and I wondered whether I would be able to disguise them in my hair. They also looked rather uncomfortable being made of hard plastic, not the most pleasant material to stick in your hair!
The instructions advise to part hair at the crown, tease a little and then firmly place the Bumpit at the parting. I did as instructed and had mixed feelings. Although the insert created a nice amount of volume at the crown, I simply didn't have enough hair to cover the little prongs so these would be more suited to thicker hair.
They were also a little precarious once placed, so I wouldn't feel safe wearing them in public or on a night out, I think they would need constant re-adjusting to prevent them slipping or showing.
Overall a disappointment, although I never expected amazing things from them. Next I want to try Foxy Lock's Instant Beehive. These look a lot more wearable and hair-friendly. My quest for big hair continues...
