Day 2 Advent Calendars

So, I am back with day 2 and after another bad night's sleep this is another early morning opening but I am at least having better luck today even if one is still disappointing, sigh.
But I'll stop yabbering on and show you what I received.

No. 7 Advent Calendar
High Shine Lip Crayon 1.4g (I think it is in Daydreamer)
I find that this is a wash of colour rather than being heavy pigmented so you would need several coats to give good coverage but it has a good shine and I have swatched it below.

Body Shop Advent Calendar
Body Shop Nail File
I am not too impressed with today's item as you often get them as a freebie in beauty boxes so I have a few already.
I hope tomorrow is better for The Body Shop.

Benefit advent Calendar
Ultra plush lipgloss in a lister 6.5ml
This feels amazingly moisturising on the lips and gives my lips a beautiful pink tint as well making them look really sparkly.
A nice lipgloss to have.

Youbeautydiscovery Calendar
Laura Mercier foundation primer 30ml
This is a gel primer that doesn't feel greasy or sticky.
It is actually the second sample that I have received of this and everything that I have heard has been good so I look forward to trying them especially as I am not a fan of silicone primers as they feel heavy on my skin.

Yankee Candles Advent calendar
Tea light (either Christmas cookie or Snowflake Cookie)
A tea light in either the same or similar scent to the one yesterday.

Here are the swatches of the lip products. On the top is the No. 7 High Shine lip crayon and on the bottom is the Benefit lip gloss. Both are nice wearable shades.

So there are my five today and I will do my top five now:
1. Benefit
2. Youbeautydiscovery
3. No.7
4. Yankee Candle
5. The Body Shop

Thankyou for reading and see you tomorrow.
Have a lovely day.
