Lets start with:

This palette has a mix of warm and cool tones, the colours are so versatile you can create any look day
to night look.
Cost £9.99

Makeup Revolution I <3 Makeup Naked Chocolate Palette
This palette has a mixture of beautiful colours & tones, the shadows also blend amazingly together.
Cost: £7.99

Barry M Starry Eyed Eyeshadow & Blush Palette
This palette was limited edition & cost around £5 - £7 , I'm not to sure if it is still around to buy, IF it is,
check out Superdrugs or Tesco's.

The colours are perfect for the night out or if you are brave enough, it's perfect for work!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Amrezy Palette
Now this palette went viral, everyone was after this palette and i can understand why!
The colours are warm, easy to blend and so pigmented! I love it!

Lastly, this palette is the one I am waiting for in the post! I love it!

Illamasqua Sculpting Palette Honest Review

I am so excited for this! Illamasqua recently launched a few products, one of them being a Sculpting Palette. I just had to get my hands on it and try it out and let me tell you at first i thought
However when i tried it a few more times, I honestly can not be without it! 

 In the palette, you get 6 shades. A highlight (shimmery) Cream highlight, 4 contour/sculpting shades
L to R
Rush Cirrus Heroine Nimbus Steal Create

Personally i use, Heroine Nimbus & Steal to sculpt and the shade Create as a blush

This retails at £44, yes pricey is what I thought!
Is it worth the price? To be totally honest with you, i have seen other sculpting palettes and i have never reached for them ( buy them) I've always been a bit hesitant, so considering I don't own a sculpting palette, i took the dive and bought this! 


The shades are not very pigmented, apart from the shimmer highlight. I love that it is not so pigmented, I know I can create a soft look & if I want to go heavier, I can build up on it!

I hope this has helped anyone who is considering to buy it :)

Want to see how I use it? Watch the video now :)

Jordana Modern Matte Lipstick Review

Okay okay okay, let me start with saying, these lipsticks are AMAZING!

These lipsticks are affordable, long lasting, and there are different shades to choose from. I have two shades:
(L) Matte Tease
( R ) Matte Bare

Both these shades are the perfect "nudes " for warm skin tones & perfect if you wear a darker lipliner underneath! Love them!

They are matte, but do not worry, they're not the drying type of matte, it's the moisturising type of matte, okay okay not that moisturising but trust me, try them and you will know what i mean.

Here are the swatches:

( L ) Matte Tease
( R ) Matte Bare

Now you're probably wondering, where can I buy these from?
If you're from the states, i'm guessing all over! I bought these from Walgreens
If you're from the UK, here is the link:

If you have tried them, let me know what you think of them!
