Palettes - BECCA - Champagne Collection face palette

This palette is the bomb. I am a fan of Jaclyn but this isn't a biased review, the quality of this palette is outstanding. Firstly, the packaging is absolutely stunning. It looks and feels expensive and the mirror inside is hugggeee and so clear, for that reason alone it would be perfect for travelling with.

The blushes are perfect. Soft, smooth, pigmented, easy to blend and maybe …

Primer/ Corrector - Urban Decay - All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

This is expensive but it's the only negative thing I have to say about this product.

I have oily skin, more so in the t-zone but my face also likes to eat my bronzer, blush and highlight too. I also have problems with my foundation separating or sinking into my pores, no matter what brand I use. This setting spray doesn't keep me oil-free all day but I don't have to …

Palettes - Lime Crime - Venus II Eyeshadow Palette

May/03/2016

I don't enjoy this palette as much as the original Venus palette but there are some really unique shades in this one, and like the original Venus palette, I'm obsessed with the packaging.

'Jam', 'Mud' and 'Pigeon' are my favourite shades, all are stunning and easy to work with. I really like 'Mustard' too as it's such a unique …

Eye Shadow - Lime Crime - Venus eyeshadow palette

May/03/2016

I bought this palette during a sale and it's beautiful. I'm obsessed with corals and reds so this palette immediately appealed to me and the packaging is to die for (main reason I wanted it to be honest).

The shadows themselves seem to be good quality, very pigmented and soft and the only one I really noticed the fall out with was 'Aura' but I don't mind as …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Texture

I love using Texture as a warm transition or crease colour. It applies lightly making it perfect for this area. Soft Brown is unfortunately not available in the UK so if you want that but can't get hold of it, give Texture a try instead.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Veluxe Pearl - Coppering

Coppering is one of my favourite eyeshadow colours of all times. It really makes my blue/green/grey eyes stand out. I love using this all over the lid and blending into my crease lighting paired with strong black with liner, a black lined waterline and lots of mascara to avoid it making me look tired.

It can look quite scary in the pan but if you have blue or green eyes, you definitely …

The pigmentation of this shadow is crazy good. On me it's a beautiful rose gold colour that really makes my blue/green/grey eyes stand out. I love pairing it with Texture and Brown Script for a daytime spring look.

Powder - MAC Cosmetics - Mineralized Skin Finish in Light

Mar/03/2016

I love this powder for setting my foundation and touching up throughout the day. It doesn't really control my oily t-zone for long but I haven't found any powder that does without looking cakey.

This is great because it has a little bit of pigment which I like as my oily skin tends to break up my foundation during the day. It never looks cakey, dry or too matte and gives my …

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eyeshadow - Brown Script (Matte)

Brown Script is a super pigmented orangey brown shade. I absolutely love this in the crease or built up a bit more in the outer corner of my eye. I only take a little bit on my brush at a time as it's super pigmented and it's quite easy to go over the top with it. The texture is buttery and it blends like a dream. Gorgeous.

Eye Shadow - MAC Cosmetics - Eye Shadow - Veluxe Pearl: Twinks

4.0
Created with Sketch.

Feb/15/2016

One of my favourite Mac eyeshadows. Twinks is stunning on my grey/blue/greeny eyes. It is quite sheer but will apply much more pigmented if you wet your brush first. I don't like to waste this colour in my crease because I think it really comes to life when you build it up on the lid for a gorgeous vampy plummy red brown smokey eye.
