Maybelline Be the Big Shot Gift Set

As Christmas has been and gone, the emails for Boxing Day and January sales hit my inbox long before the clock struck midnight, in fact, it was the beginning of December I had new offers emailed over to me every single day and that didn't stop on Christmas Day itself or even now as we approach the New Year.

If you have party plans for New Year's Eve or even New Years Day then Maybelline have a gift set that is worth looking out for.  Called 'Be The Big Shot' it sits within the Christmas Gift Sets but actually, it makes quite the gift at any time.
Be the Big Shot with this bold set from Maybelline New York. The perfect Christmas gift... Give it away... Or keep it all for yourself!
What I love about this gift set, other than the actual makeup contents is the sparkly clutch bag which on its own is great for dressing up outfits for going out. The Maybelline Be the Bit Shot Christmas Gift Set contains the following:

Burgundy Bar Eye Palette (£11.99) - Now this is one of the best highstreet palettes I have used in a very long time and admittedly, I wasn't expecting to like it. 
Maybelline Burgundy Bar EyeShadow Palette
The palette comes with a reasonable twelve shades. Ten shimmer/metallic and two mattes. The colours range from light gold to cranberry to deep burgundy and they are all so wearable too.  In fact, I am so impressed with this palette, it has a blog post dedicated to it all on its own and it is there you will see the swatches.  The brush isn't that brilliant, but it is rare I would use an accompanying brush anyway, I prefer to use my own eyeshadow brushes.

The Colossal®️ Big Shot Volum' Express Mascara 9.5ml in Very Black (£7.99) - This is one of my favourite mascaras from Maybelline and it is all about the wand for me.

The colossal brush is designed to deliver the collagen enriched formula, coating the lashes from the root to tip of lashes for fully loaded volume. What I love about this mascara is that you can build it without clumping and it doesn't flake or smudge.

Hyper Precise Eyeliner (£5.99) in Black - Eyeliner and I have a love/hate relationship and I have to be in the mood to wear it and even when I do, I don't wear a lot of it. 
Maybelline Hyper Precise All Day Liquid Eyeliner
This is a waterproof and smudge-resistant eyeliner which has an exclusive tip for mistake-free application and even for someone like me who has issues with eyeliner, this one is easy to use and apply. It uses Ink technology to keep the pigments super-saturated and it is safe for sensitive eyes and ophthalmologist-tested.

I think this is an amazing gift set and it costs just £19.95 which is an absolute bargain when you add up the cost of buying each product separately. You can find this one on Feelunique.
