Urban Decay | Naked 3 Palette | Review

This is a product I have been waiting to review for a few weeks now but I wanted to make sure that I had tried all of the colours before reviewing. 

This is the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette. Urban Decay are known for the quality and amazing colour range in their Naked Palettes. I loved the look of the first and second palette but I thought that the colours in these were both very similar and looked quite easily dupe-able.  When I saw the third palette I immediately wanted it. The colours are completely different than palette 1 and 2. I picked the palette up in Sephora whilst in America where it was $52.00. 

So this palette contains 12 beautiful neutral shades with pink and rose gold undertones. The packaging is a lovely sturdy metal tin, with a large mirror inside. It also comes with a great quality double ended brush and it came with 4 resealable samples of the Urban Decay primer potions.  

The Colours|

Strange = a creamy white matte colour perfect for highlighting under the brows and also a great base colour.
Dust = This is a shimmery baby pink colour.
Burnout = Dusty pink, very shimmery.
Limit = Matte dusty rose colour.

Buzz= Metallic rose with specks of silver glitter.
Trick = Metallic copper-y pink colour
Nooner = purple-y pink matte colour.
Liar = bronze-y mauve shimmer

Factory = Pinky brown satin
Mugshot = Metallic taupe shimmer with a hint of pink
Darkside = dark taupe/mauve satin 
Blackheart = smoky black matte with slight red sparkles

Overall I am so happy with this palette. You can create so many different looks for daytime and evening. I don't think I have gone a day without using it since I got it.

Do you have this palette? What do you think? Do you prefer 1 or 2?

MAC Eyeshadows | Review

Hi Guys,
Sorry again for the lack of posting. Over Christmas and New Years I was on Holiday in Florida and have made it my New Years resolution to start blogging again!  

It was my 21st birthday in December and I was given a present that I have wanted for a long time. My sister bought me 2 MAC eyeshadows, I have wanted to try these eyeshadows for such a long time as they are so highly rated in the blogging community. She bought me Naked Lunch and Sable. 

These are two great colours that go beautifully together. You can wear these everyday but you can also make a lovely evening look with them. 
The quality of these shadows is amazing. Creamy, highly pigmented, build-able with great lasting power. I am so happy with these that I am now desperate to expand my collection!

Naked lunch is a great colour to use all over the lid. It is a shimmery rose gold colour. I sometimes use this on its own for a natural day look but I tend to add Sable through my crease. 
Sable is a bronze-y plum colour.I feel like this colour can be paired with lots of other colours and would suit all complexions.

Hi Guys! I want to start this post by apologising about my lack of posts recently. My camera broke then I had laptop issues! My camera still isn't working so I am going to continue using my Iphone - so please excuse the quality of my pictures at the moment!

I popped into town yesterday. I was trying to think of brands that I can get hold of in my small town that I haven't used before. This is what brought me to LUSH. Although I have popped into LUSH before I haven't ever bought myself anything, to be honest the only things I have purchased in there have been their £5.00 secret Santa giftsets for presents!

When I went into LUSH I was immediately approached by one of the sales assistants. She was so nice and she started chatting away before asking me what I was looking for. I told her I wanted to try one of their fresh face masks, she then asked me what type of skin I had after explaining that I have dry skin she advised that their OATIFIX face mask would be the best for my skin. She put some on my hand before washing it off with warm water.
I then noticed their make-up, being honest I didn't know that LUSH sold make-up. The sales assistant went through some of the colours with me and explained that each colour is named by a positive word. She asked me to look at all of the colours and choose one which stands out to me the most, I said the liquid lipstick in DECISIVE, this is a lovely pin-up girl red. 

When I went to the till to buy the OATIFIX face mask, the store assistant very kindly gave me the DECISIVE liquid lipstick and she also gave me a sample of their 9-5 face cleanser. 

Overall I had a great experience in LUSH and I am looking forward to trying these products to learn more about the brand.

June 2013 | Birchbox | Review

Hi guys. My Birchbox arrived today and before I go into the review I have to say this is probably my favorite box I have received so far!
Also Birchbox have changed their packaging and logo. I have heard a few people saying they preferred the old logo but I prefer this one.   

Beauty Protector | Protect & Detangle | £15.00
Multi-purpose products are festival friendly and this sweet-smelling spray detangles, adds shine and protects from UVA rays and heat. Its exclusive to Birchbox! 
Hold the bottle 4-6 inches from damp hair and spray a few times before combing through and styling. 
- i'm excited to try this. it smells absolutely amazing! I have also recently bought a tangle teezer so it will be interesting to use these two together. I like the packaging of this the bottle is made of rubber so its squeezey.

Color Club + Birchbox | wanderlust collection nail polish | £10.00
Brighten up your festive style with these exclusive-to-birchbox neon and pastel shades. Layer two coats of the polish between your base and top coats to extend the life of your mani.
- These are by far my faviourite items from this box. I love the colours they are so bright and summery. Having previously used nail polishes from color club I know that these are such good quality and last on the nails for a long time! 

Coola | Classic face SPF 30 Cucumber |  £26.00
Wave goodbye to sun protection's typical white residue and help prevent premature ageing with this clear cucumber-scented SPF for face. Apply over your face and neck after moistuiser and before make-up or use alone for a protected fresh-faced finish.
- This smells really nice and to be fair its not a bad sized sample as things like this normally come in a sachet (Which I hate).

ModelCo | Eye define Eye Pencil |  £14.00
Highly pigmented and long-lasting, This fab pencil liner comes with an in-built sharpener - perfect for festival rock chic style. Suitable for sensitive eyes, the pencil stays soft and creamy for 30 secs of blending before settling to a budge-proof finish.
- I have heard a lot about the ModelCo brand recently so I am looking forward to trying one of their products. I love the way this has a sharpener on the lid, its very handy. I don't think I would spend £14.00 on an eyeliner though!

Noble Isle | Bath & Shower Gel |£20.00
Pack a little luxury for the festival season with this bath and shower gel inspired by the countryside. Nothing complicated here: Lather up and get lost in the divine scents.
- This shower gel smells nice. I don't get excited about shower gels they tend to just sit in my shower and my partner normally uses them! On the plus side this is a decent sized sample!

I love this box I think it is well worth the money this month, I am very happy as I was starting to doubt Birchbox!
What did you think of the June Birchbox?
