One of my favourite plum lipsticks (MAC Craving) finished a while ago (sob!) and so there was a wee plum coloured gap in my lipstick collection. Rather than buying the same shade again, I really wanted to try out a similar shade from another brand. There is something really fun about trying out a similar shade from another brand, particularly one that I haven’t tried before. Enter Smashbox ‘Be Legendary Lipstick’ in ‘My Digits’!
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!!!!

Around Autumn last year, Kiko launched their new range of lip glosses: the Hydra Lip Gloss, touted as a ‘softening lipgloss for shiny, plumped lips’. I purchased shade 26 Sparkling Hibiscus Pink to try when they came out and love the glossiness, pigment and non-sticky nature of the formula. I recently purchased shade 16 Iridescent Ruby and love it just as much (let me know if you would like to see a post on this shade too). It’s been a while since I have written a Kiko post so I thought it was time to put a post together on this fabulous product!

For this look, I used teal and green eyeshadows to create a fun, colourful spin on the traditional smokey eye. I really like how teal and green eyeshadows look together.
Tip: You could add a little lemon yellow eyeshadow in the very inner corners if you want to add even more colourful brightness to the eyes. Black or deep teal liner along the upper and lower lashline would also add some extra smokiness to the look.
