Elf HD Blush

November 29, 2013

You know you have a serious makeup addiction, when you forget about unopened products for months. I have a little box, that I keep packaging in, for reviewing purposes obviously. Alas, I had a nose in there and to my absolute delight I found two unopened elf products! One of them was the Elf HD Blush in “Headliner”. I’d wanted this for ages and had completely forgotten that I had bought it on an earlier haul. I hadn’t even opened…

Dec Most Wanted

November 28, 2013

I was hoping my Oct/Nov Most Wanted installment would be it until after Christmas. I was so wrong! Browsing the web and gift magazines has only made my love for all things … well erm … all things … even bigger! So my Nov/Dec most wanted, is going to be all the things I want, but definitely can not have until well into the New Year. Urban Decay Vice 2 Palette 20 Beautiful dark and glittery shades. God I need…

MUA Starry Night Eyeshadow Palette Review and Swatches

November 22, 2013

MUA have a great range of eyeshadow palettes, but I always seem to have trouble with their matte shades. This gorgeous silver toned collection however is all shimmer finish, making every single shade a winner. Starry Night has twelve shades in total, but as with all the older MUA lines they are not named (or even numbered – a big gripe of mine!). As with all cheaper eyeshadows a primer is an absolute necessity, and for these swatches I’ve used…

MUA Luxe London Glitter Eye Palettes in Rock Chick and Diva

November 21, 2013

My transition from occasional glitter lover to full on magpie seems to be reaching an all time climax and I nearly did myself some damage when I saw these little boxes of sparkle! There are four palettes on offer, Rock Chick, Diva, Burlesque and Twilight, ranging from cool blues to fiery reds. I of course went for the two blue toned palettes Rock Chick and Diva and I’ve been pretty mesmerized with them since. The glitter is suspended in a gel,…

NYC Disco Inferno Topcoat

NYC Disco Inferno Top Coat

NYC are really upping the game on glitter topcoats at the moment. As well as  the gorgeous Rock Muse collection (reviewed here) I also spotted this gorgeous stand alone shade Disco Inferno. A clear base with blue and silver holo glitter, it really has to be seen up close to understand how absolutely gorgeous it is. I think it would look great over any complimentary shade but I really love how it looks over the dark blue. (B. Complete 180…
