A couple of weeks ago, I posted a sneak peek of products I picked up from a recent trip to Kiko (click here to see the post).  As part of the ‘Metal Fusion’ collection, there are powder highlighters which are also available in the permanent Kiko range.  I already have the Glow Fusion Powder Highlighter in 01 Champagne, which was included in the ‘Metal Fusion’ collection.  This highlighter gives such a beautiful, natural glow to the face that I think it is well worth 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!

Kiko ‘Green Me Collection’: 02 Feisty Saffron Eyeshadow Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Earlier this week, I posted a sneak peek of products I picked up from a recent trip to Kiko (click here to see the post).  I picked up one of the eyeshadow palettes – 02 Feisty Saffron – which is part of Kiko’s limited edition ‘Green Me’ collection.  I thought it would be fun to do a more in-depth post on this eyeshadow palette, particularly since I think it is a great smaller and cheaper alternative to Urban Decay’s Naked Heat Palette and Tarte’s Toasted Palette.

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Debenhams recently launched the Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette online and I just couldn’t resist getting it.  I don’t have any of the other Too Faced Chocolate Bar palettes but this one really appealed to me.   The palette is filled with a mixture of brightly coloured and neutral metallic eyeshadows, as well as some matte shades for blending.  It just looks soooo beautiful and it smells incredible too!

MAC Metallic Lipsticks (Forbidden Romance, Disobedient and Coral Optix)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Metallic make-up is big this season and lips are no exception.  MAC recently released limited edition Metallic finish lipsticks as part of their lipstick range.  I chose three shades – Forbidden Romance, Disobedient and Coral Optix – as I found them flattering and totally different from anything else that I have in my make-up collection.

Interested in metallic lipsticks from other brands? You might like these posts featuring some of Urban Decay metallized lipsticks here and here.

Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When the Kat Von D ‘Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette’ launched in October at Debenhams, it took me a wee while to decide whether or not to purchase it.  Not because of the shade selection or the quality (it’s amazing on both counts!) but due to the £52 price tag.  The palette costs more than I would usually spend on an eyeshadow palette and so I really wanted to make sure it would be a good investment for me before forking out for it.  Now that I have it, I am soooooo glad that I got it!!!!

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).

Here is some new make-up news for this week:

Benefit is launching a new boxed powder blush! The newest offering in the range will be Galifornia, which is described as a ‘sunny golden pink blusher’.  The idea behind the shade is that it captures the glow of the ‘Californian sunshine in a box’.  Benefit’s boxed blushers usually feature different scents and this one is no different.  Galifornia is said to feature notes of pink grapefruit and vanilla.  According to the official Benefit UK pages, Galifornia will be released on 11 February.  Can’t wait to check this one out as I have a weakness for pink blushers with gold hues! You can read more on the official Benefit UK pages here.

Jerrod Blandino recently posted a sneak peek of Too Faced’s new Love Light Highlighters on his Instagram page.  The highlighters follow Too Faced’s classic heart shaped design for cheek products but this time, come in metallic looking compacts.  I love highlighters, so I can’t wait to check these out! The launch date is advertised as March 2017 so I imagine these will follow in the UK later in the year.  You can see the sneak peek photo here.

Urban Decay has just released a new line called Vice Liquid Lipsticks.  There are 30 shades available across two different finishes: Metallized and Comfort Matte.  The liquid lipsticks are currently available in the USA (click here to see more on the official UD site).  I don’t currently have information on when these will be available in the UK but I will update this post when I find out.  

If you are a fan of Charlotte Tilbury’s cult lip liner Pillow Talk, you might be excited to hear she has released a Matte Revolution lipstick in the same shade.  Exciting if you are a lover of this nude-pink liner and want to colour your pout with a matching lip colour! You can find Pillow Talk lipstick here.

Charlotte Tilbury has also released another new lipstick shade, with the name suggested by social media followers: K.I.S.S.I.N.G. Lipstick in ‘Valentine’.  Valentine is described as a ‘petal-rose’ pink which gives you a soft, full and kissable looking pout on application.  You can find Valentine lipstick here.

MAC is coming out with a number of colourful lip and lash product offerings for Spring 2017.  The ‘In Extra Dimension Mascara’ launch includes vibrant and colourful mascara colours, ranging from yellow, orange, red, blue and green.  You can read more, see photos and see swatches on ChicProfile.com here.  The ‘ColourRocker’ launch contains 28 vibrant matte lipsticks, ranging from yellows, pinks, greens, teals, greys and blacks.  You can read more on Temptalia here.
