Hello, fellow makeup enthusiasts!

I'm so excited to be writing this post as I will be talking about my all-time favourite makeup product, and that is eyeshadow palettes. Now, I don't know about you, I just feel that there's something special about a box of shadows. The mass array of colours, the soft buttery textures, the metallic shimmers... oh I could go on all day! But time is of the essence. So, let's get on with the comparison, shall we? I just thought I'd let you know before we start, this is going to be a long one - so you might want to grab a brew first!

After the phenomenal success of the original Chocolate Bar palette from Too Faced, Makeup Revolution, who have a habit of replicating a lot of high-end products have produced a much cheaper version. Both palettes share the same amount of neutral shades combining of mattes and shimmers including a light pink and violet shade, also featuring the two larger pan highlighter shades as well.

Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion in Original | Full Review




Hello, beauties! 

I can't quite believe it has taken me all this time to finally get round to write a review on
a product I simply couldn't live without, and is used every single time I wear eyeshadow. In my view, this is the master of all eyeshadow primers... Primer Potion by Urban Decay.

When you wear and enjoy makeup as much I do, an eyeshadow primer is an essential product to have in your makeup bag. Especially, if you suffer with oily lids like I do!

Things I've Learnt in My First 6 Months as a Beauty Blogger




Things I've learnt In My First 6 Months As A Beauty Blogger


Hi, everyone!

I can't quite believe it's been 6 months since I published my very first post, which you can read here and have a good giggle at the dodgy photos, haha! As I've only been blogging for 6 months, I thought I'd do a light-hearted post about some of the things I've learnt so far, including all the little niggles and frustrations I've endured but also sharing some of the exciting moments as well. I'm sure they'll be many of you that will be able to relate to some of these trials and tribulations during those early day's in the blogging world too!

Hi, everyone! 

Before you begin, you may want to grab a cuppa, as this could be a long post! 

My long-awaited trip to IMATS, (International Makeup Artist Trade Show) in London, finally arrived Saturday 4th June. A day that was to leave me inspired, excited, wowed, happy, frustrated, poorer and exhausted! Haha! The trade show took place at Olympia, Kensington, London, featuring mostly makeup brands used by professional makeup artists and specialists from TV and Theatre. Apart from the UK, the show also schedules in the US, Canada and Australia. Unfortunately, it only features once a year here in the UK.

Without a shadow of a doubt, you always know you're going to be in for a real treat whenever shopping channel QVCUK announce their latest TSV from Tarte Cosmetics. I only found out about this 2 days prior to the launch, but luckily managed to order this the day before it was televised, as I was to be away at this year's IMATS at Olympia, London.

Drugstore Buys Including a Dupe!


Makeup Revolution Radiance Highlighter Palette

Makeup Revolution Radiance Highlighter Palette



Hi, everyone!

Yes, I've been shopping again! Although, I actually bought these quite a while ago, after Leanne from L.Page Beauty (which you can have a read of her fab blog here) left a comment on one of my lipstick reviews claiming a certain shade was a dupe for a much higher-end one. But you'll have to wait a little longer to discover which one that is.



So, as old habits never die, I found myself once again loitering around the makeup stands in Superdrug, Norwich. I swear blind the staff must think I'm a shoplifter, as I take bloomin ages choosing my next victim, a product to be ripped apart and vilified should it not perform to my highest expectations (I'm a nice person really!) I don't know why I just don't get a job there and be done with it.

Other Products I've Been Using Lately



Hi, everyone! 

Here we have some other bits and bobs that I've been using lately I thought I'd share with you.
Ok - maybe not the most exciting products to drool over, but sometimes, even the most boring looking ones can contribute to our never ending quest to look and feel like a million dollars.

Beautifully Paired For A Lighter Base







Despite the weather being rather erratic lately, one minute warm, the next minute freezing cold, I was kinda in the mood to want to start wearing something a bit lighter, and allow my skin to breathe a little after months of heavy coverage from the often harsh wind we experience here on the east coast. I've also begun to really embrace the glow which is something I've never done before due to my constant battle with oily skin that's now drying out a little since reaching a certain age. 

So, it was whilst rummaging through my drawers, I rediscovered this much-loved gem, Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Gel Foundation - £10.99, (not the cream formula,) and forgot what a fab little foundation this is!
