What I Got For Christmas 2012!

Hey There! I hope you all had yourselves a very merry Christmas. I just wanted to share a few beauty related gifts I received over the festive season. I have already tried out all of the products (because I’m way too impatient & couldn’t resist) and so far I am more than happy with all of them. In saying that, before I do broadcast a review on any of these products I will definitely need to get more use out of them to get a thorough and accurate opinion. Without further ado; here are the gifts along with a quick blurb that came with the products:

The Benefit ‘Perk Up And Away!’ Gift Set:
Posietint (Full Size 12.5mL) – A poppy-pink tinted lip & cheek stain
Dandelion (Full Size 7.0g) – A brightening face powder
Watt’s Up! (Full Size 9.4g) – A soft focus face highlighter
The Porefessional (Tester  7.5mL) – Pro balm to minimise the appearance of pores

MAC Lip Pencil in ‘REDD’

Bobbi Brown Corrector in ‘Light to Medium Bisque’

Garnier BB Cream Miracle Skin Perfector for Combination to Oily Skin in ‘Medium’ (40mL)

(From Left to Right) Garnier BB Creme 'Medium', Bobbi Brown Corrector 'Light to Medium Bisque', Benefit Watts Up!, MAC 'Redd', Benefit 'Dandelion', Benefit Posietint
Taylor Swift ‘Enchanted Wonderstruck’ (100mL) – Containing notes of wild berries, pink poppies and passion fruit as well as white musk, vanilla and blonde woods.

Chanel ‘No. 5’ (100mL) – Containing notes of aldehydes, ylang-ylang, jasmine, bergamot and musk, although this perfume is incredibly hard to pinpoint an exact description as it is just a classic

Marc Jacobs ‘Daisy Eau So Fresh’ (Travel Size 20mL + 15mL Refill) – Containing notes of grapefruit, berry, pear, litchi and green notes

I was so overwhelmed with all of these gifts and I can tell you they made me one very happy girl! I was probably most excited about receiving the Chanel No. 5 perfume as it is just gorgeous and I was very upset when my last bottle ran out, as well as the Garnier BB Cream, the Bobbi Brown Corrector and the Benefit Watt’s Up!

Please comment down below and tell me what your favourite Christmas gifts this year, I would love to hear from you!

Testing? Testing? 1, 2, 3

Hey there! First off & foremost; thank you for stopping by. This being my first blog post EVER I will admit I am slightly nervous and very unsure of what to write, but here goes nothing…
I guess it would be best to introduce myself, my name is Ashleigh and I am sixteen years old, living in Australia. As indicated in the title I wish to produce a blog aimed at those who share a similar interest as me; BEAUTY! This is quite a large umbrella term which encompasses not only cosmetics, but also skincare, hair care, fashion as well as the occasion lifestyle post. Basically I am just throwing my interests into one big pot and hoping some good comes out of it.

Nothing would make me happier than to hear from you, the reader, so please feel free to email me at or tweet me @AshsBeautyBag, whether it be constructive criticism, requests,  a query or if you just want to say hello, I would be more than delighted to hear from you!
I will stop babbling on now and leave you in peace to continue browsing the world wide web! I hope you have a lovely day & please come back soon!
