Last week, I was browsing in Debenhams and picked up the Too Faced Sugar Peach Wet and Dry Face & Eye Palette.  The palette didn’t really stand out to me online but in person, it looked so beautiful! I’ve been playing around with it and think it is amazing!

I love the versatility, scent and glowy, wide-awake look that this palette gives to the eyes, cheeks and face.  The palette also looks – and feels – so luxurious, special and classy, making it a real treat to use.

I think that the Too Faced Sugar Sweet Palette is definitely worth a look if you want a daily palette to make your whole face quickly appear brighter, glowy and healthy!

Makeup Revolution The Emily Edit: ‘The Needs’ Palette

I mentioned in my recent ‘sneak peek’ post (you can see the post here) that one of my favourite YouTubers, EmilyNoel83, has launched two palettes, in collaboration with MakeupRevolution.  The two palettes – The Wants and The Needs – are amazing and I have really been enjoying playing with them.

Today’s post features ‘The Needs’, an ‘all-in-one’ palette which contains everyday essentials for quick and easy make-up.  

I think this palette ticks all the boxes for anyone who wants to streamline their make-up application, have everything to hand in one place or have a travel friendly option.  The design of the palette, along with the enclosed products, make every day make-up so much easier – and quicker – to navigate.  Whether you are a fan of Emily or just someone who wants to make their make-up process more seamless, I think this product is amazing! It’s also at a great price point – £10 – so it’s a great way to try out a variety of different products!

I’m a long-time viewer of EmilyNoel83 on YouTube and recently saw her video announcing the launch of her two palettes, in collaboration with Makeup Revolution.  You can see the launch video on her YouTube page here and a shorter video on the Makeup Revolution YouTube page here.

I have tried – and loved – many products that EmilyNoel83 has recommended in her videos and so I was incredibly excited to try out the two palettes she has created.  The two palettes – The Needs and The Wants – are just fantastic and I am enjoying playing with them so much!

The Needs Palette contains Emily’s greatest hits from her favourite Makeup Revolution palettes and focuses on everyday essentials for the face and eyes.  You can read my post, along with photos and swatches on The Needs Palette here.  

The Wants palette contains 24 eyeshadows in various tones and is designed to inspire you, whilst also keeping you in your comfort zone.  You can read my post, along with photos and swatches on The Wants Palette here.

I am a big fan of powder foundations and have been trying out the Kiko Weightless Wet and Dry Powder Foundation for a few months now.  I have really being enjoying how light-weight the powder feels, as well as how quick and easy it is to apply to the face.  I thought it was time for a post!

Sneak Peek: Boots Make-up 3 for 2 Haul

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Last week, I spent some time browsing the make-up counters in Boots as I really fancied checking out the new Spring time offerings.  Boots had a ‘3 for 2’ deal on and I ended up picking up various new make-up items.  I got some products from ranges I have tried before and other items which are new to me.

I am planning on writing more detailed posts on each of these items in the coming weeks once I have had a chance to try them out.  Look out for posts coming soon!

My Favourite Make-Up For Long and Busy Days

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In January, I was doing some intensive lecturing work and as part of that, I wanted my make-up to last well across the day.  I found some products within my existing make-up collection – and some new products – to be extremely long wearing.  Some of them also enabled me to skip parts of my usual make-up routine.  I thought it would be fun to put together a post on these products.  I might also try and do some more detailed posts on each product as well so let me know if that is something you would like to see!

IT Cosmetics: ‘It’s Your Complexion Perfection’ 4 Piece Collection on QVC

QVC UK started selling IT Cosmetics last year and since then, I have been eager to try out some of their products.  As of last week, QVC UK started selling the IT Cosmetics Your Skin But Better CC Cream as part of a special 4 piece collection.  I’ve heard a lot of great things about this product (Emilynoel83 loves it), along with the other items in the collection, and so I couldn’t resist ordering it for myself.  The collection was also available last weekend for a ‘Today’s Special Value’ deal of £47.89, rather than £65, as part of QVC UK’s Beauty Weekend.  So I just had to get it!

I thought I’d do a post showing what the collection looks like and giving a quick overview of the products inside.  I’ve just received the set and not yet had a chance to play around with the products.  I  might do a few other posts providing more information on what I think of the products once I’ve used them and more detailed product pictures  (let me know in the comments section if you would like to see these types of posts).

Too Faced Primed and Poreless Skin Smoothing Pressed Powder

I’ve been looking for a new colourless setting powder for quite a long time now.  EmilyNoel83 (I love watching her YouTube videos) uploaded a video a few months ago featuring her favourite natural face powders.  The Too Faced Primed and Poreless Powder was given a mention and I thought, ‘Why not try it?’.  

I tried the powder over a foundation which I love but doesn’t have great staying power (I usually need a touch-up mid-morning) and wow!!! After applying my make-up early in the morning (around 7:15am), I didn’t feel the need for any powder touch-ups until later in the afternoon around 4pm.  That’s right – 4pm!!!

My Holiday Make-up Bag

When I’m on holiday, I like my make-up to be effortless and easy.  I like to look polished and nicely presented but I don’t want to have to spend much time getting ready.  When I’m visiting warmer climates, I also like my make-up to be very light and fresh; I prefer not to have much on my face at all.  Over the years, I’ve managed to whittle down my holiday make-up bag to those products that I know I will use.

I thought it would be fun to do a post featuring those products, as I know how hard it can be to leave products behind when you are a make-up lover! This post features my favourite face, eye and lip products for taking on holiday.

Today, I am going to introduce you to my favourite concealer: Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer! I likely wouldn’t have tried this product, had I not received a free sample with a make-up order from Debenhams.  I’m really glad I got to try it, as I absolutely loved it and went on to buy a full-size version.
