Glimmer and Shimmer With MAC Shiny Pretty Eyeshadows

MAC has released a new formulation of eyeshadow – Shiny Pretty Eyeshadow – as part of their Holiday 2018 ‘Shiny Pretty Things’ collection.  I bought one eyeshadow (Make a Wish) to try and ended up going back for two more as they are stunning!

If you are looking for a product which is ultra shiny, sparkly and pigmented, then I highly recommend trying the Shiny Pretty Eyeshadows! These eyeshadows impart a opaque coat of glitz on the lids with just a simple patting on with a finger or a brush.  I’ve not used a glittery eyeshadow before where been able to get a high impact, opaque finish so quickly and easily!

Kiko Radiant Baked Blush in 02 About A Coral

I recently picked up Kiko Radiant Baked Blush in 02 About A Coral and have been enjoying wearing it so much.  This blusher gives such a radiant, natural flush to the cheeks and the lighter swirls add a subtle burst of luminosity. 

I think this blusher is so pretty for everyday and one that works well with a range of looks, from neutral, colourful and super smokey. 

I also think the Kiko Radiant Baked Blush is a great dupe for the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushers, as there are some similarities in terms of finish, glow and the overall look both products give to the cheeks.

If you dislike the feel or look of liquid foundations on your skin, then I highly recommend trying out the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Ultra Definition Liquid Makeup.  I’ve found myself reaching for this foundation on a regular basis, as I just love the consistency, feel, look and finish on my skin.  I generally prefer to wear face powder or powder foundations on a daily basis, so to find a liquid foundation that I actually like wearing shows me that this product is something special!

The formula is so comfortable, lightweight and natural looking that it is hard to believe I am wearing a liquid foundation.  Add to that the fresh, radiant and healthy look it gives to my skin and I think Urban Decay are on to a real winner with this product!

I have an article on the Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Complete Coverage Concealer on the site which you can find here. I’m planning on updating the post as I wrote it back in 2016, so keep an eye out for the updated version soon!

I’m a huge fan of the Too Faced Peaches and Cream products and am absolutely loving their new Too Faced Peach Kiss Moisture Long Wear Lipsticks.  I first purchased the shade ‘Breakfast Club’ and was so impressed that I ended up picking up two more shades – Got Peach? and Peach Beach.

I love the vibrancy, opacity, smoothness and comfortable feel of these lipsticks.  They smell delicious too, due to their refreshing peachy, vanilla-esque scent.

If you are on the look out for a new matte lipstick with incredible pigment, opacity and comfort, then I highly recommend the Too Faced Peach Kiss range!

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!

I was browsing in Debenhams this week and couldn’t resist picking up two products from the Too Faced Peaches and Cream collection.

Too Faced recently extended their Peaches and Cream range to include the new Sugar Peach Wet and Dry Face & Eye Palette.  You can read my full post on the palette, along with photos and swatches, here.  The Sugar Peach Wet and Dry Face & Eye Palette didn’t stand out to me online but in person, it was sooooo beautiful! I just loved the whole feel of the palette, from the shades, the versatility of the products, the palette size, the smell and the luxurious feel to the compact.

Debenhams also had in the full range of Peach Kiss Moisture Matte Long Wear Lipsticks, which they haven’t had until now.  You can read my full post on the lipsticks and see photos here.  I tried on a few shades and loved the vibrancy, smoothness and scent of the lipsticks.  I chose Breakfast Club, a bright, sophisticated orange-based red colour.  Edit: I have since purchased two more shades, Peach Beach and Get Peach? .  You can see all of these shades in my full post on the lipsticks.

Stay tuned for an upcoming post on the Peach Kiss Lipsticks!  I also have the Just Peachy Mattes Eyeshadow Palette and the Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette, so let me know if you would like to see posts on those products.

Some time ago, I posted a sneak peek of the NYX Away We Glow Eyeshadow Palette in ‘Hooked on Glow’ (you can see the post here).  The palette really caught my eye due to the beautiful mix of peach, gold and brown shades in various finishes and tones.

I’ve been using the palette for quite a while now and think it is amazing! The range of colours, finishes and tones makes the palette extremely versatile, whether you want to create easy daily looks or more complex combinations. The eyeshadows are beautifully pigmented, smooth and last well on the lids.  Win-win for me!

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 Wants’, an eyeshadow palette with 24 eyeshadows spanning a wide range of colours, tones and finishes.  The shades in the palette have been created to inspire you, as well as to keep you in your comfort zone with your make-up.

I absolutely love this eyeshadow palette, as it has an amazing range of colours, tones and finishes, all for just £15.  I would highly recommend the palette to anyone who wants to try out lots of different, great quality shades at an affordable price.

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.
