As you may know, I am a Nars collector (any excuse) and when I saw this Narsissist palette I nearly wet my pants, then I kind of calmed myself down and said NO, YOU DO NOT NEED ANOTHER RANDOM NUDE PALETTE, then I took a closer look at it and realised that yes, yes I DO need this palette in my life because it is a Limited Edition and I collection this stuff. Also it’s […]
I must admit I haven’t acquired any Sleek makeup for a while but the newest releases (launching the 15th of January) at Superdrug and selected Boots. If you haven’t seen my swatches of previous Sleek eyeshadow palettes you can see them here. Anyway, Garden of Eden eyeshadow palette. This is a predominantly earthy palette with greens as the accent, which is what I have been waiting for! I love greens! There are also earthy browns […]
It is so exciting to get your paws on a new make up range, especially when it’s one you have heard lots about but never had a chance to try. Make Up Atelier is one of those brands. Make Up Atelier Paris is a professional make up brand created by Helen Quille – whilst the products are professional and also suitable for heavier stage make up, it is also a consumer brand too. The range […]
‘And God Created Woman’ is a classing French film directed by Roger Vadim and stars Brigette Bardot, back when she was young, so stunning and less…controversial. You know Nars really does seem to love his beautiful film legends… Anyhoo..I spotted this little beauty a few months ago on the official Nars website (I collect their artist palettes, so frequently look to see if a new one has come out as they are not all publicised). […]
I am utterly utterly obsessed with depotting eyeshadows and getting them altogether in one place (an example – however I have changed my view on Unii palettes, read on!) so when I saw the new style MAC empty palettes with the clear lids I knew i had to have them. I didn’t actually realise how many MAC eyeshadows I had collected over the years – I thought I had about 10 because I don’t buy MAC […]
The brightest Nars Artist Palette I own is this New Wave collection, which I knew I had to have even thought the colours are somewhat bright. I do still love bright and vibrant shades, even if they take a little bit more time to work with. At the moment though my staple shades are neutrals. Even so…
Mr C kindly gifted me a number of Nars palettes, so I have finally had a chance to play with them all and am going to share my swatches and thoughts on each one this week. Each of the Artist palettes are LE, although they do in my experience, take a while to disappear from the official Nars websites. There are ones on there I bought years ago which they told me were LE but […]
Hurrah! So I got my paws on my own Urban Decay Build Your Own Palette (£14 – for the tin, brush and a neutral matte eyeshadow called Walk of Shame, exclusive to the palette). There’s space in here for 6 colours in total. The tin is not really compact enough to take out with you day to day I think, but it’s not big and cumbersome either (I’d happily take it out for a […]
There was a time when I’d go to work with blue and green purple sparkly eyeshadow – what can I say, it can be dark in the mornings and it wasn’t until I checked myself out in the lift I realised how much I looked like a CRAZY PERSON. The fact is I am very time short in the mornings and I do like a bit of eyeshadow, so I have decided to keep the […]
Yes I saved the best for last. Heaven & Earth is the brown toned palette from MUA Professional (and I am into browns at the moment!). It’s a great palette – a mixture of warm and a few cooler browns, beige, golds – lovely. Is it like Urban Decay’s Naked palette, I hear you cry?! Well have a look here, you tell me!
Dusk til Dawn is one of those palettes that I knew was very me – I love the green. I will buy a palette based on the strength of its green only. That and the silvery hues look good. I presume the name, Dusk Til Dawn suggests you can use it for night and day: Take a look….
Another palette I instantly knew I would like from MUA professional was Starry Night! This is similar (or closest to) Sleek’s Storm palette, but more wearable thanks to the purples, greys and lighter shimmers. Did I tell you I currently have an obsession with pink eyeshadow? I like how they provide different shades, like the silver, blue, purple, pink to mix it up a bit…
Next up is the MUA Professional Palette in Pretty Pastels: Hands up right away! My least favourite. I just don’t like pastels that much. Some people do, especially those who like natural colours. I just find this palette quite samey and soft – but it IS pastels! It is delivering what one would expect!
Next up on this MUA palette day (hehe) is Poptastic. This is the brights one – full of blues, pinks, yellow and orange. This is the sort of palette I usually jump for but in my old age (ahem) I am really loving more neutral shades. Nevertheless, there’s always room for some brights. Once again like the palette I reviewed earlier, the shades are sort of random. Yes, there are lots of blues but […]
I recently got the whole set of MUA Professional Eyeshadow Palettes in the post. There are six palettes to choose from, and each comes with 12 colours. They are similar to Sleek I-Divine Palettes and are just £4 each from Superdrug. I have so many photos I have decided to split each palette into it’s own post. Come back at the end of the day to see all 6 palettes in action! First up I […]
I just lurrrveeee palettes and sticking everything into a palette. Check out my Unii! I think I have this idea that one day there will be a huge disaster, like an explosion in a marshmallow factory and I’ll be stuck (literally) on a bus or something. Then I’ll be able to whip out my all in one palette and have perfectly co-ordinated colours, even if we are all starving to death and being suffocated by […]
To be fair to Jill Stuart, they sure know how to package make up. This purchase is part of their Dreamy Garden Collection – 102 Amazonite Dazzle to be exact. But have a look at the packaging…so lovely: Also part of the Dreamy Garden Collection are these lipglosses! I nearly missed this item in my massive haul because the seller had stuck it into a box of hair dye! Post is taking such a long […]
A few weeks ago I already showed you some photos of the Estee Lauder Bronze Goddess products for 2011, well I have some clearer swatches for you here: I have the palette, Island Oasis and duo eye pencil in Gold Bronze (there is also a turquoise and blue version). The palette:
Purple is my no. 1 eyeshadow palette of choice at the moment so stay tuned for a number of Purple themed EOTDs! Dr Hauschka is known for skincare but I was surprised to learn that they also have a range of make up! I received this set in Lavender Dreams to try out. This eyeshadow palette comes with 4 shades and is suitable for sensitive skin, and has plant oils and extracts in it. I […]
