This arrived in the post earlier this week, and I can confirm that it is, of course, gorgeous. The packaging is exactly the same as Modern Renaissance and Subculture, just in a matte gold kind of shade. Not the prettiest colour, but as always with Anastasia its great quality. The eyeshadows themselves are really beautiful. Nowhere near as powdery as the Subculture, nor as colourful as the Modern Renaissance, there are a ton of soft browns, crease shades, and deeper defining browns. There are a…Continue Reading “[REVIEW] Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam Palette”

This is a major throwback to the summer, but I wanted to talk about a couple of high-end makeup picks I’ve been loving over the past few months! Marc Jacobs Beauty is a relatively new discovery for me. This bronzer was part of the summer collection, and I just fell in love with the packaging. The product itself had great reviews too, so I thought I’d give it a go. Whilst I was there, I of course had to pick up the Dew Drops Coconut…Continue Reading “[THROWBACK] New-ish Luxury Makeup”

When I saw that Space NK were getting the Champagne Collection Face palette back in stock, I just couldn’t resist! I’d umm-ed and ahh-ed about it initially but convinced myself that I didn’t need it. Of course, I still don’t need it, but I just couldn’t pass it up. And it’s so so beautiful! I can’t wait to start using this properly, but for now here are my initial thoughts and some swatches to keep you going. Everything about the look of this palette is, of…Continue Reading “JACLYN HILL x BECCA Champagne Collection Face Palette”

This is how I feel about the new ABH palette: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ If you were waiting for the big reveal on what my opinion was at the end, I’ve kind of ruined the surprise. Sorry not sorry! This palette is so pretty, so pigmented, and just generally impressive that I might just leave this post here…   Okay maybe not, because I really want to tell you guys about this palette! I’ve been wanting to get my hands on an ABH palette for ages, but I’ve always…Continue Reading “[REVIEW] Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette”

We’re going back a while now, but when I was in Barcelona about a month ago, I went and spent waaaaaaay too much money in Sephora. There’s a huge Sephora in a little shopping centre which opens out onto the Plaça de Catalunya. It’s so big that it’s actually downstairs, with a whole level to itself. I was really impressed with the other beauty shops around that area (Rituals, Kiko etc), but Sephora was always going to be on my wishlist for a European holiday!…Continue Reading “Barcelona Sephora Haul”

I know I say this about an awful lot of make-up, but I’ve had my eye on the Zoeva Cocoa Blend palette for a while now. I was under the impression that Zoeva was only available from their official website in the UK, which charges £7 delivery, so I was waiting until I was ordering some of their brushes in order to get this palette. However, when I actually went to make the order, I had a quick search and found Beauty Bay, which was…Continue Reading “[REVIEW] Zoeva Cocoa Blend Palette”

I’ve had quite the eventful weekend, which I’ll be doing a post on soon, so I’ve not had the chance to jot this down until 4.30pm on a Sunday! I also had Friday off, which was my first day off so far and was pretty awesome. I’m really getting into Christmassy stuff as well, which I know is pretty early for most, but I love getting excited about it all. The earlier I get excited, the longer everything lasts, because I never want Christmas to…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 15th November 2015”

I’ve been going on about it for a couple of weeks now, so I thought it was about time to do a review post. I know everyone and their mum has done one of these, but I really wanted to do one too. Plus I need more post inspiration and didn’t know what else to write about :’) I’m not going to go into tons of detail, but I’ve got some swatches and opinions on the shadows, and a couple of ideas for eye looks…Continue Reading “[REVIEW] Urban Decay Naked Smoky Palette”

This is going to be a super quick favourites I’m afraid, as once again I forgot! It’s Sunday night and I’ve had so little free time this weekend, which is really unusual for me! Anyway, keep reading to check outs week’s favourites. 1.Urban Decay Naked Smoky palette I know, I know, I only posted about this a week or so ago. But actually I’ve really been enjoying this so far. I’ve only done one really smoky eye with these shadows, as I’m mostly doing make…Continue Reading “Five Favourites: 11th October 2015”

Earlier this week I was in Oxford, and couldn’t resist popping into Debenhams to check out the make up counters. I often overlook Debenhams when looking to buy beauty, and they actually have a lot of great brands, including some which can be difficult to get hold of. Despite also wanting to pick up the Bare Minerals Bare Skin foundation (which, by the way, comes in the tiniest bottle ever), I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of things from Urban Decay, one of which…Continue Reading “New In Beauty”
