Mama's Birthday Presents

On Monday it was my Mum's 45th (or something like that) birthday. My brother and I tend to put our money together so we can get her a few nice things rather than lots of smaller, cheaper things.

This year I took a wander to the Lancome counter in my local Boots (advantage points to me!) and picked up one new thing and one item I know she likes.

Lancôme Juicy Tube in 22 (£14.50) and Hypnôse Doll Eyes Mascara in Black (£20.50)

 Obviously since these were presents I haven't tried the products so can't review them but I love the look of this brush. My pet peeve with mascaras is the annoying rubber/plastic brush, I much prefer a thick, bristly brush (see Benefit's Bad Gal or Maybelline's Great Big Lash) to get volume, length and even coverage. 
I chose this lipgloss in the most neutral colour they had without being too bland. Since my mum works I didn't want her to have to pass on the lip gloss or to settle for the sticky Bobbi Brown lip gloss that I always find in her handbag! I asked whether this lip gloss is sticky and I was assured it isn't but I'll have to wait for mother to report back!

Anyway, I'm off to Disneyland Paris tomorrow and I'm sure you'll be greeted with a very photo heavy post the day I come home!

Have a lovely rest of the week, big love
