The first thing I got was something I'd been lusting over for around a year, Touche Eclat by YSL (£25). I don't tend to use highlighters, but this one is amazing. The gold pen looks amazing, it's so luxurious! Clicking the button is so satisfying, haha. I tend to use it under my eyes, over foundation and concealer, this helps brighten them that little bit extra. I also use it on my cheekbones and cupids bow. It gives your skin a beautiful glow which looks really natural. I'm not a huge fan of really sparkly or shimmery highlighters so this is absolutely perfect for me. Kyle got me Shade 2 which is the lightest one I believe.

How beautiful is that YSL box?! I still keep the Touche Eclat in it!
One of the other presents he gave me was a set from Lancome, it's the Hypnose Drama set. This set comes with mascara, a black kohl eye liner and make-up remover. So handy! These are the first Lancome products I've ever tried, I must say I'm very impressed. Kyle did a great job at choosing these gifts!
This set is still on their website here, and retails at £21.
All of these products are amazing. I especially love the mascara and make-up remover. The make-up remover works so well, I always have trouble getting my eye make-up off. Just when I think I've done a good job at getting it off I wake up and there's still loads down my face!
The mascara gives my lashes so much volume! I'd never used a mascara with one of those scooped/curved brushes, it was a little weird at first but didn't take long to get used to. The packaging for the mascara is especially lovely.
I must say I need to try the eye liner a little more, I have worn it in my water line but that's it. It did stay put and there was minimal smudging, which is great for my eyes because they water as soon as I put eyeliner or mascara anywhere near them!
I was and still am so happy with these gifts, I really am very lucky! Thank you Kyle :)
What are your dream luxury beauty items? I'd love to try some Dior items, but I'm quite content with what I have at the moment.
