NYX Away We Glow Eyeshadow Palette

 

NYX Away We Glow Eyeshadow Palette in Hooked on Glow

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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 recently ordered the Anastasia Beverly Hills Norvina Palette from BeautyBay after seeing lots of great reviews of the product on YouTube.  The palette is incredibly versatile, in that it has a great range of colours, tones and finishes.  I’ve felt so inspired that I been using it again and again for my eyeshadow looks!

B and M Discount Store Bargain: NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I recently found and purchased the NYX Sweet Cheeks Blush Palette from B&M for only £5.99, with a usual RRP of £17.99.  I’ve always looked at this particular powder blusher palette in Boots and so it was fantastic being able to get it at a fraction of the price! The palette contains a wide range of shades, so it’s a fantastic choice for anyone looking to try out a range of different colours, for travelling or if you are just starting out in make-up.

Stay tuned for a post on the NYX Plush Gel Lipsticks! I found a triple pack of Plush Gel Lipsticks for only £6.99 in Watt Brothers, which is the usual RRP price for just one lipstick!

New NYX Make-Up: Away We Glow Eyeshadow Palette and Lip Lingerie Glosses

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I was browsing in Boots last week and noticed that there were some new NYX products being featured at the front display section at the NYX counter.  The new ‘Away We Glow’ collection includes two eyeshadow palettes and the palette called ‘Hooked On Glow’ really caught my eye due to the beautiful mix of peach, gold, brown tones.  The Lip Lingerie Glosses looked really interesting, as the same shades were available in three finishes: regular gloss, shimmer and glitter.  I ended up choosing Euro Trash in the Shimmer finish. 

You can see my full post, including photos and swatches on the Hooked on Glow Eyeshadow Palette here.  Let me know if you would also like to see a full post on the Lip Lingerie Gloss that I picked up.

Spotlight on MAC: Extra Dimension Blush in ‘Sweets For My Sweet’

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The ‘Extra Dimension’ line is one of my favourites from MAC and so I was very excited when they introduced Extra Dimension blushers, skin finishes and eyeshadows to their permanent range.  I found it very hard to choose what products to get as they were so beautiful but I managed to narrow it down to one blusher (featured here) and one skin finish (Beaming Blush).

Spotlight on MAC: Vivid Coral and Purple (Using MAC Eyeshadows)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For this look, I used peachy-coral, copper and plum MAC eyeshadows on the lid, followed by a slick of NYX Vivid Brights Coloured Liquid Liner in Vivid Violet along the upper lashline (you can read more on this product here).  I really love how the purple liner contrasts and ‘pops out’ against the peach and copper tones on the lid.

To complement the look: I used  Too Faced Sweethearts Bronzer in Sweet Tea (click here to read more about this product), Too Faced Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Sparkling Bellini (click here to read more about this product) and Loreal Colour Riche Shine Lipstick in 464 Color Hype.

Berry, Peach and Lime Pop (Using Kat Von D Saints and Sinners Palette)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I haven’t yet played around with Rosary from the Kat Von D Saint and Sinner Eyeshadow Palette and was keen to try it out.  For this look, I used it alongside Sacred Heart (a peachy-coral shade) and Exodus (a light acid green) to create a soft, colourful effect on the eyes.  I really like how Exodus (the lime green shade) pops out in the inner part of the lid.

Revlon Ulta HD Gel Lipcolors (760 Vineyard and 705 Dawn)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some time ago, I watched a You Tube video by Emilynoel83 where she recommended the Revlon Ultra HD Gel Lipcolors.  I have tried out – and loved – some of the products she has recommended in the past and so I couldn’t resist picking up a couple of these lipsticks.  The Ultra HD Gel Lipcolors are a relatively new addition to the Revlon lipstick line-up.  I picked up two shades: 705 Dawn, a neutral rose with a slight sheen and 760 Vineyard, a medium mauve-plum.

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.

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’!
