MUA “Pretty Edgy Eyeshadow Palette” – The Studded Palette Review

March 13, 2014
mua-luxe-studded-palette-featured

  When Gem and I had heard MUA had launched a “studded” palette under their Luxe range, our imaginations ran wild with what many delights this could entail, and thankfully a lot of this ran true. As suspected, they had released a beautiful palette, covered in gold studs. What could be more heavy metal than that? During the festive period, this was sold out everywhere, including direct from the MUA website, but luckily Gem had procured this for my birthday…

MUA LUXE Velvet Lip Lacquer Review

March 12, 2014
mua-luxe-lip-lacquer-2

I’ve seen a host of reviews on this product all talking about how amazing it is and with the temptation of the shade “Atomic” (you’ve guessed it, a bright red) being too much for me to resist, I ended up buying this a few weeks ago. Usually not being a fan of wand style lip applications, I was sceptical to begin with. I tried it out the day I bought it and slapped it on quickly, whilst running late for…

Sleek i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette Au Naturel Review & Swatches

March 11, 2014
sleek au naturel palette

  I’ve been tempted by Au Naturel for the longest time, but couldn’t really justify it when I already have so many neutral palettes. Luckily for me I spotted this in the Superdrug reduced basket for only £3.50 and absolutely jumped on it! The only damage was to a chip of plastic in the upper right corner and the eye-shadow Taupe beneath, and even so there’s plenty left in the pan. Au Naturel contains twelve colours, eight mattes and four…

MUA Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter

  I’ve been trying to get my hands on one of these for absolutely ages and now suddenly they are everywhere! When it comes to highlighter I am a firm fan of Benefit Highbeam, so much so I’ve barely tried any powder highlighters – this might be the one to change my mind though! The Undress Your Skin Shimmer Highlighter has a gorgeous peachy colour with a -lot- of shimmer, I really wasn’t expecting so much pigment but really I would…

The Vegan Kind is a new monthly Vegan lifestyle box. It promises to deliver between 5-8 products each month that are all cruelty free and Vegan – they also donate 10p of each box to the chosen Charity for the month. This is my second Vegan Kind box and I’d almost forgotten about it’s arrival until it turned up yesterday morning. The first thing I did when I eventually got into the box, was read the info sheet that came…

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water

March 6, 2014
Garnier Micellar Water

Micellar water has quickly become one of my absolute skincare staples, so when I spotted a new player in town I couldn’t resist giving it a go! For those not in the know, micellar waters are a sort of none-rinse make-up remover and cleanser in one. They can be used on the face, lips and eyes (and any other body part should you need it!) and are a dream for sensitive skin as they are soap, and usually fragrance, free.…

  Ever since Gem has discovered how beautiful these brushes are, I too unfortunately sucumbed to their spell and have been pulled into the Real Techniques obsession. Luckily for me, Gemma started my collection off by purchasing not one set, but three of these bad boys for my birthday. Core Collection Kit This set comes with a contour brush, pointed foundation brush, detailer brush and buffing brush. From Left to Right: Contour Brush – The first thing I noticed about…

Glamour Beauty Edit 2014

      I tried so hard to resist this box, I really did, but last week I caved and I am SO glad I did! Welcome to the third Glamour Beauty Edit box by Latest in Beauty! I missed out of the first, but absolutely loved the second (reviewed here!) so really my resistance was futile. The box contains seven products worth £45 which is a little less bang for your buck than the previous boxes, but certainly nothing…
