Benefit World Famous Neutral Pallete :Review

Benefit generally have brilliant packaging and this eyeshadow pallete is no different. I couldnt resist but decided to buy it eventhough I have literally all the neutral colours in existence.

This eyeshadow book kit comes with four powder eyeshadows in: call me buff (a pearly white colour); kiss me, I'm tipsy ( a reddish brown colour); it's complicated (a shimmery goldy pink) and gilt-y pleasure ( a shimmery goldy peach). The kit also contain two creaseless cream eyeshadows in birthday suit (shimmery champagne colour) and my two cents (shimmery golden copper).

Overall I love the luxury and pigmentation of the powder and cream eyeshadows. The powder eyeshadows apply like butter and are not at all loose and powdery. You literally have everyting you need for an everyday neutral eyeshadow look and I can myself hitting pan on this fairly quickly. What did you guys think?

Rimmel London Fix & Perfect primer: Review & Swatches

I love the Benefit PORE-fessional primer but the price is abit too much I think, so i thought I would try a high street primer and picked the Rimmel primer a couple of weeks ago.  The primer itself comes in a squeeze tube and a twist off cap which I love as I am a hygiene freak!

A bit of the primer goes a long way, therefore it would last you for a while. The primer fills in fine lines and your pores making your face look and feel flawless and also providing a perfect base for your foundation. 

It mattifies the face so it works well with oily or combination skin types. People with dry skim can also use it, as long as you apply a moisturiser before you apply the primer. Other than that, the primer is white with a  lovely cream texture and does not give you that silicon feeling that the benefit one gives. I absolutely recommend this for girls who want a primer on a budget! 

What is your favourite primer?

NOTD: No7 Vivid Violet

No7 has been my go to nail polishes recently.  They have great colour pay off and last long on my nails. All I need is two coats and a minute or two to dry and I am ready to go.  I think the price is very acceptable at £7 per polish. 
The colour I've been recently loving is Vivid Violet (shade number:40) in their stay perfect collection.  Its a violet colour with a beautiful purple undertones and reflects the light with a Goldy shine.  Its an absolute gorgeous colour to wear! Whats ur favourite No7 product?

Bourjois Blush in 33 Lilas D'or : Swatches and Review

My go to Blush this summer is the bourjois Paris blush in 33 lilias d'or. The bourjois paris blush range is huge; therefore catering for many peoples skin tones and preferences. It's a pink blush with gorgeous golden undertones and looks perfect on tanned and medium skin tones. The blush can be applied sheer to have a peach colour pay off.
The blush also contains golden glitter, but it is so thin it just leaves a glowy sheen to the skin. This blush can easily be used as a highlight for medium to dark skin tones.

I'm not a fan of the brush it comes with, but it's nice to know they offered something. 

For £7.49 it's reasonable as I've been using this blush for about a year and still have a lot left. And for the colour payoff and wear time I think the blush is worth the money !

MUA Trio in Chocolate Box: Review & swatches

Today's product review is about the MUA Baked Eyeshadow Trio in "chocolate box". The name is so adorable that I couldn't resist to walk away from it. The shades in all the MUA trio's look stunning together ( and the size of the trio is great for travelling).
Chocolate box had a perfect combination of two taupe colours and a pinky peach colour.
The shadows aren't chalky and blend easily and match high end eyeshadows I've tried. The wear time isn't the greatest, but over a primer it should last all day. The trio costs £2.50 which is a very reasonable price for highly pigmented baked eyeshadows. Have you guys tried any MUA products?
