✨ Supernova Shadow πŸŒŸ

I’m so excited to share these beautiful liquid eyeshadows by ColourPop. I’ve had them since Christmas (my boyfriend did well considering I didn’t even know about them) and I’m so in love 😍. I’m starting to really appreciate ColourPop as a brand as before I really wasn’t interested in their products but now I’ve got some of the eye products I’m really swaying towards the brand.

<<<<<<
h supernova shadow retails for $7 which I think is really good considering Stila's liquid eyeshadow are Β£23 each πŸ™„.

Anyway I received the following shades;

  • Walk Of Fame- this is a true gold sprinkled with silver glitter.
  • Dragon- this is a copper shade with pink, teal and silver glitter.
  • Hard To Empress- this is a warm red with a gold duo-chrome.
  • Firecracker- this is a cool toned burgundy with a gold and silver duo-chrome.
  • Moonlit- a vibrant purple with pink, purple and turquoise glitter

Before I go into detail about the supernova shadows here are my swatches:

Overall I think the shades are really pretty but I found some were more pigmented then the others. Formula wise I have got to be honest do not over apply the supernova shadows as you’ll find once they’ve dried down they end up crumbling off. I’ve worn a few shades now and I think they are great value for your money but bare in mind you get what you pay for.

BH Cosmetics- The Ultimate Neutrals Palette πŸŽ¨πŸ’›

I’m super super excited to share/review my new eyeshadow palette from BH Cosmetics . The palette is called The Ultimate Neutrals and contains 42 shades all for $22 what an absolute bargain 😍.

<

The palette is so stunning and you can achieve endless eye looks with the generous mix of matte and shimmer/metallic shades 😍. I think this palette is incredible and I can’t get over the huge variety of shades the palette has to offer. Here are my swatches:

Surely the pictures speak for themselves I mean come on look at the pigment 😍! The metallic/shimmer shades are one of the best on the market in my opinion. I’m so impressed with the matte shades too as they aren’t chalky and I love the velvet formula too.

I’ve used this palette a few times now and I’m so impressed with how the shades blend and I love how you can continually build/layer each shade.

This palette is defiantly a must have and the price point is so good, so grab it whilst you can!

Naughty 😈 or Nice πŸ‘πŸΌ

Happy New Year everyone πŸ’œ I hope the first few days of 2018 are treating you all great already 😘.

On another note I finally got my Nice eyeshadow palette from Kylie Cosmetics holiday collection and I’m literally not impressed with how long I had to wait for this πŸ™„. I ordered the palette on the 22nd November 2017 and it got lost in transit, so the company sent me out a replacement and it literally only arrived yesterday 😠.

Anyway rant over let’s dive into the palette 😍.

First impressions of the Nice I think the packaging is super cute and I love the glitter on the outer packaging (the top pic). Once I opened up the box to my surprise the palette was so soft and had a velvet feel to it but I do think the palette is slightly on the small side as I was expecting it to be the same size as the Take Me On Vacation palette.

The Nice palette retails for $44 and appears to be the more popular palette compared to the Naughty palette.

The palette consists of a mixture of 14 shimmer to matte shades and I really like the range of shades in the palette. The shades are:

  • Jack Frost (satin white with gold shimmer)
  • Lullaby (matte light apricot)
  • Gumdrop (metallic champagne pink)
  • Mulberry (satin plum)
  • Holly (matte reddened orange)
  • Slay (metallic bright true gold)

  • Santa Baby (light warm taupe)
  • Blizzard (shimmering mauve with blue green flip)
  • Macaroon (matte dusty blush)
  • Miracle (matte white peach)
  • Hot Cider (matte rich chocolate brown)
  • Wonderland (matte deepened brick red)
  • Drummer (metallic reddened bronze)

I haven’t wrote the shade names on my swatch as there was fourteen shades it was nearly impossible to fit them in all in one go πŸ˜‚! But all the shades are in order and concede with the list above πŸ˜„, here is my swatch:

Here are all the fourteen shades in the palette and I’m going to be completely honest I’m not a huge lover of this palette. Don’t get me wrong I love the shimmer/metallic shades as they are so pigmented and sparkly 😍. But I’m not so keen on the other shades as I found they weren’t as pigmented and the formula looked so patchy as you can see above :/.

I’m quite tempted to get the Wet Set and the Naughty palette does anyone have them, are they worth it?

Trophy Wife πŸ† πŸ’›

First off I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas and I wish everyone a Happy New Year πŸ’›. I had the best Christmas ever with my partner and family I couldn’t have wished for more πŸ˜„.

I was so lucky to receive a Fenty Beauty highlighter in the shade Trophy Wife. I’ve wanted this for so long as I’ve literally seen glowing reviews about the highlighter.

<b

e highlighter retails for Β£26 and to be fair I thinks it's a decent size but it doesn't compare to the size of Jeffree Star's highlighter which is a lot bigger and is Β£25.

Anyway I think the shade is so stunning and it's a lovely metallic gold.

Here is my swatch:

I don’t know where to begin really but I think the formula is always an important factor when it comes to a product. The formula feels really buttery but it also has a powder feel to it too and it’s incredibly pigmented.

I love the fact the highlighter can be used on your face, body and as an eyeshadow it’s perfect. I think Fenty Beauty is really taking the Beauty market by storm and it’s defiantly a brand to keep an eye on in 2018!

Red Velvet ❀️

I finally received the only item I purchased from Kylie’s Christmas collection and I managed to get this lipkit during the Black Friday sale Too for only $16.20 instead of $27 which for me it was a pretty epic bargain 😍.

The outer packaging is cute and I like the green textured glittery lips but if I’m honest it doesn’t really wow me. Unlike Jeffree Stars holiday collection the packaging had me weak at the knees and I kind of expected Kylie to up her game.

I did love the look of the wet set and her lipstick sets but I personally found them to be way overpriced and there is no excuse for her to up her prices like that. So I only ended up purchasing the lipkit and the nice palette (which has been lost in transit 😑)! The shade Red is a warm vivid red and it’s super super pigmented. I love the fact kylie has created a iconic red lipstick in the velvet formula which is one of my favorite formulas on the market.

Here is my swatch:

I love this shade so much it’s so pretty and extremely pigmented. I adore the velvet formula so much as it really makes me lips feel so soft and hydrated whilst bursting with color 😍.

Just a quick disclaimer this product will really stain your lips so beware of this. It literally took me three days to just wash the swatch away πŸ˜‚!

πŸ’œ Kylie Cosmetics- The Purple Palette πŸ’œ

I’m so happy my Purple Palette from Kylie Cosmetics has arrived πŸ˜πŸ’œ! I managed to get the palette during the Black Friday sale for $29.40 instead of the usual price of $42.

For the Purple Palette Kylie went back to her original design that is compact and chic but this time she added a mirror which I think is a nice improvement.

There are nine shades in the palette that range from shimmers to mattes and at first look they look so pretty!

The nine shades are:

  • Periwinkle (satin icy pink)
  • Trophy (pearlized bronze taupe)
  • Stone (matte cool tone taupe)
  • Lilac (matte soft lilac)
  • Amethyst (metallic purple)
  • Turning Violet (matte deepened violet)
  • Wine ‘N Dine (matte deepened plum)
  • Purple Smoke (satin purple slate)
  • Blueberry (matte cool gray)

Here is my swatch:

Ok what can I really say about these swatches, I think the photo speaks for itself πŸ˜πŸ’œ. I love the shades they are so pretty and super pigmented! The formula is one of Kylie’s best and I can honestly say they have the most beautiful velvety smooth texture.

This is a massive improvement from her last palette All I Want as for me it had so many flaws and o could’ve really done without that palette in my collection!

I think the Purple Palette is so stunning and bang on trend for this season and year. The palette is like no other and I think it is defiantly a must have.

πŸŽ„Last Minute Christmas Gift GuideπŸŽ„

With Christmas literally looming around the corner (8 days away) I know I can speak for a large amount of people when saying I still haven’t done hardly any present shopping yet πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ.

So I’ve prepared six little gift ideas that are sure to please your recipient 😍.

  1. Burt’s Bees Best Of Burt Set 🐝RRP Β£29.99 but you can buy it from Look Fantastic for Β£22.49 and the set contains:
  • Beeswax Lip Balm
  • Tinted Lip Balm in the shade Hibiscus
  • Milk and Honey Body Lotion 170g
  • Coconut Foot Cream 120g
  • Shea Butter Hand Repair Cream 50g

I love this gift idea as everyone loves a good pamper set for Christmas. This is perfect for any Burt’s Bee fan and i think the set contains a lovely selection of their best selling products.

2. Aquis Luxe Hair Towel RRP Β£30 but yet again Look Fantastic is offering it cheaper for Β£22.50- Heat damage to your hair is a thing of the past now with great inventions like this towel. So throw away your hair dryers as this towel reduces drying times as well as minimising frizzy hair.

3. Fat Face Body Spritz and Hand Cream RRP? I can’t remember how much I purchased the set for, but it was from Fat Face . Unfortunately the set has sold out but check out places like EBay or Depop as people always are selling gifts sets nearer Christmas.

I must admit I do like this set as the hand cream is really moisturising and the body spritz is so refreshing 😍.

4. Charlotte Tilbury Instant Eye Palette RRP Β£60 you can purchase the palette directly from Charlotte Tilbury.

This palette contains the most stunning neutral shades that can be used to create numerous looks. I think it’s super fun that Charlotte Tilbury has created a palette that can be used for any occasion.

5. Jeffree Star Platinum Ice Palette RRP $40 this can be purchased directly from Jeffree Star Cosmetics but if you want to save postage and custom fees then wait until it arrives on Beauty Bay (which is a official retailer).

The palette feature six cool-toned iridescent pressed highlighters that will leave you glowing for days! The shades are super pigmented and I’m obsessed with the creamy long-wear formula this is a must have present for any highlighter lover!

6. A Bit Of Burt’s Bees Coconut & Pear Gift Set RRP Β£6.99 but you can purchase this from Look Fantastic for Β£5.24.

The set contains :

  • Coconut & Pear lip balm
  • Lemon Butter Cuticle Cream

The lip balm is so lovely and hydrating, I’m obsessed with the smell of the balm 😍. It’s a perfect little stocking filler!

Anyway now we’ve come to the end of my last minute Christmas gift guide I hope I’ve been able to give you some pretty decent ideas πŸŽ„πŸ’š.
