Bear with me while I contain my excitement… you know I’m obsessed with highlighters and this palette really takes the cake. Rose gold packaging, a purple shade, super pigmented, cheap… can we just take a minute to bask in it’s glory?
Okay, I’ve pulled myself together – let’s chat!
Strobing is something I am a complete amateur towards and to be honest I’m still sort of getting my head around contouring. Isn’t strobing just highlighting as per usual? Apparently not.
The way I see it, strobing is like excess highlighting. “Bulk” highlighting as Crystal Conte might put it. This palette literally does make ‘strobing’ ultra easy. I know that sounds cheesy and hopefully I didn’t put you off with that cliched, cheesy title. However I’m only being honest!
Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia! ALLELUIA! (Jeez, you know when you type a word too much or look at a word for too long and it just does NOT look right? Yeah that totally happened with Alleluia. It is such a strange word…).
This palette is the best thing that’s ever happened to me and it’s changed my life. I PROMISE YOU. Out of all my palettes this is by far the most life-changing. I know this sounds cliched coming from a “beauty blogger” but hand-on-heart, I swear to God, this is life.
Ahh blush, it has the power to make you look angelic, embarrassed, child-like, hot, orange, glowing or potentially, sunburned. What a lot of power that is. I can almost feel the rays of emotion coming from this palette.
Today I’d like to chat to you about this blush palette I received recently from an order on Beauty Joint (www.beautyjoint.com). It is the BH Cosmetics Glamorous 10 Blush Palette. I have heard really great things about BH cosmetics so I thought I’d give it a wee go (why not eh?). I have always wanted a blush palette purely because I always buy pink blush shades and I wanted to mix it up a bit. I love this palette because it’s so cheap – so I was able to justify my purchase of $13.29US on an entire palette – even though I may not use all the shades!
The worst thing about this palette is that the shades don’t have names so it’s going to be difficult to describe which shade I’m referring to but hopefully we will get there and if that’s the worst thing then it must be pretty fab!
The packaging is very simple and sleek, it’s nothing special really. As a warning – it is quite thin and I feel as though it could break fairly easily. Or at least it probably isn’t great protection for your blushes. That being said, I’d recommend not taking this one away travelling with you, and be careful where you store it.
I was most excited to get this palette because of the gorgeous lavender shade in the bottom middle. Like, what? I don’t think I’ve ever seen a blush in that shade before! It is gorgeous. I have no idea what it would look like on the cheek (perhaps like I’ve smothered lavender flowers over my cheeks) but it’s gorgeous all the same. Continue reading →

Good Morning Class,
After spending hours awake last night with my brain tick-tick-ticking I decided what I’d like my next blog post to be about. I am a member of several makeup/girl/beauty related Facebook groups and lets just say my news feed is crammed with makeup posts each day. A common topic I’ve noticed on these pages is regarding the creme-de-la-creme of eye shadow palettes… the Urban Decay ‘NAKED’ palettes. Which one should I buy? Which is good for [insert eye colour here]? Which one has the best colours? Which is most pigmented? What if I’ve already got [insert dupe here]? Luckily for all of us (and unluckily for the boyf), I’ve taken the liberty of acquiring all three so that I can review and recommend appropriately.
The Urban Decay NAKED palettes include 12 matte and shimmer shades selected from the Urban Decay shadow collection. They are all neutral shades with each palette having its own theme of colours. These palettes are perfect for creating quick on-the-go looks because they come with so many shades and each one has a double sided brush and mirror. I use these palettes regularly to create simple looks for school and I can quickly sparkle it up with some of the gorgeous shimmery shades (which the kids LOVE). I have been told “Miss White I love your eyeshadow today!” after using one of these palettes.
Today I’m going to tell you my thoughts about each palette and I might even spill which one is my number one favourite palette from the collection (which happens to include my second favourite eye shadow of all time!). Continue reading →
