I had a few request to see what I got for Christmas but I decided rather than one big post to split up the blog-relevant items to show you in their own posts. You've already seen my Sally Hansen Manicure set from Mum.. well next up from Lee was the Viva Glam Gaga II from Lee. He clearly read my letter to santa as they were on my list! To be honest I'd never even swatched them in store and nude is a tricky colour for me so I'm not sure why they were on my list past them being ltd edition and I liked them more than the original Gaga. Luckily they are the most perfect shade of nude I've ever seen! I was worried they would be too dark or too yellow based when I swatched on my hand but on my lips they were totally gorgeous. Better still the lipgloss is full of tiny shimmer particles which makes it slightly different to the lipstick which means I don't just have the exact same thing in different formulas which I'd expected. I'm sure you've seen 101 posts about this in the last year and I am so very 2011 here but I am never the first one on the band wagon so here are my swatches...
