SmashBox Master Class Palette


I AM BACK! And with a vengeance! After taking a long break (over a month.. Eek!), it’s time to get back into the flow of things! I’ve been away since my brothers wedding which had occupied me immensely but I’ve missed blogging SO SO SO much, I promise to never take such a long break again!

To get back into the flow of things, I thought I’d show you a new palette that arrived at my disposal around 3 weeks ago! I had seen this crazy fun-filled palette on a few YouTube channels a while back and so badly wanted it and thought I had missed it because it was limited edition! That was.. Until I saw it on sale at a random shop where it was completely unused! It was meant to be! I then saw on eBay that there were tonnes of these palettes flying around!

What is it? Meet the Smashbox Master Class Palette (1)! There has since been the release of another but these colours seemed to appeal to me more! This palette is full of eyeshadows, blushes and a bronzer! From a range of finishes including ultra pigmented matte, to uber shimmery glitters, it’s really versatile and so compact too!

You can see from the swatches that the pigmentation is superb! As well as that, the powders blend effortlessly and seamlessly. There are no lip products in this palette but I would have loved even 1 lip colour to make it an all- rounder- travel- friendly palette! Other than that I have no regrets! For the price I paid, I practically made money!

The colours are mega versatile and I could use them all year around! What I love is that all the colours are totally ‘me’! I’ve been loving: no eyeliner and just a simple wash of colour over the lid recently.. Just like I loved it last year and this palette makes colour choices simple!

To buy this palette, you’ll have to search on eBay but, there are LOADS available! I don’t want to recommend a certain seller because I don’t want to be responsible for a bad experience (should it happen). However, this palette is limited edition and exclusive to Sephora so if you see it floating around in there, grab it! I really like the second version, too! Happy shopping!

Return of the Haul!


I’m baaaaaaack!!

I know I promised you guys a blog post on Saturday but I got REEEEAL busy so I’ll make up for it my lovelies!!!

With the end of the month near, I decided to do a little bit of shopping and picked up some.. Expensive purchases! I went to a flash place so the stuff I got was extortionately priced!

I’m really happy with the things I got! They’re what I’ve been wanting for a while so I’m glad I got them!!

The first thing I had on my agenda was.. RAY BAN’s! Now I’m not a fan of paying anything over £10 for a pair of shades but the cheap ones I get break do easily! With sunglasses I’ve learnt, paying more helps! I went to Westfield in Shepherds Bush and they have a small stall for Sunglasses Hut where we were served by a really helpful guy! He was mega helpful with all the sunglasses that I liked and what looked good! I’d wanted the Wayfarers for a while do decided to get the folding ones cause they’re so cool!

If you’re looking for an inexpensive pair, Urban Outfitters have a sale on their sunglasses and I got this pair similar to the Ray Bans for £10!

We then popped into boots and I forgot how many brands Boots actually have! The Boots stores in my area are small! I picked up the Smashbox Tinted Moisturiser because I loved the coverage amount! My skin has been really good (Alhumdolilah), even though I’ve treated it really bad! I haven’t been putting on face cream or taking off my make up properly! I know.. I’m a fool! But this stuff looks amazing! I got the colour light cause it was a PERFECT match! It looked like my skin!

I then bumped into the Yves Saint Laurent stand and just knew.. I needed a Rouge Volupte lipstick! I’m not the biggest fan of lipsticks but I had tried these a few times, tested them and put them back because of the price! This lipstick is AMAZING! The pigmentation is INCREDIBLE and it’s so moisturising! The only thing I would say is because its so creamy, it gets stuck in the cracks in your lips so ensure you exfoliate your lips before hand!

Next purchase was a whim! I saw a jewellery stand, loved the rings and got one! They’re we’re moderately priced because they had a 20% off sale but I think she should have been cheaper. I loved this trio set! It has 3 bands.. 1 gold, 1 rose gold and 1 silver which I think look beautiful together! The colours are fantastic and the gems in the band go all the way round! They look FANTASTIC! I can’t wait to do a manicure with them!

Then I saw a chocolate stand! Omg.. She had macarons! I HAD to grab them! They looked amazing and I loved the colours so I grabbed a box of 6! I know they’re expensive but I loved one of the caramel truffles she handed over so I hope the macarons match!

La Maison du Chocolat macarons £10.50

I then went to Kurt Geiger and saw so many shoes that I fell in love with! I decided to go against a BEAUTIFUL pair of shiny peep tie eels which had gorgeous studding! I then saw these star bracelets and thought they looked amazing and they looked like a really good size! I often buy jewellery if it looks as though it will fit my abnormally small wrists and fingers!
