Since I bought two Juvia’s Place palettes at the same time and already reviewed the Magic palette a couple of weeks ago, it’s only right to follow it up with its sequel – my review of the Zulu palette! This little baby is a limited edition palette from the brand which is still available to buy, but for how long, I’m not too sure. Although the 9 shadow palette leans more to the small side when compared to its 16 shadow sisters, its vibrant, bold and unique shades pack just the same punch, if not more. Keep reading to hear my thoughts on the palette, know how much I bought it for, get break downs of each shade and their performance, plus see swatches!

Throughout this year I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect colourful eyeshadow palette! After always double tapping some incredible works of art on Instagram, and pinning all my favourites to my ‘Looks’ Pinterest board for inspiration later, I thought it was time to finally buy something where I could make my own unconventional creations! To me a ‘perfect colourful palette’ is one that’s packed with shades I don’t already own (which is easy, considering I have a bunch of burgundy palettes), has incredible pigmentation and is fairly affordable, because I know I won’t use it every single day like a neutrals palette. For ages I contemplated buying some Sugarpill eyeshadows as their pan sizes are huge, they have the stamp of approval from my favourite drag queens and you can customise your own palette. However, they seem to specialise in matte shades and filling up my own 12 pan palette would have cost over $100! So when Beauty Bay announced they were finally stocking Juvia’s Place, an eyeshadow brand that YouTube beauty guru NikkieTutorials swears by, I jumped at the chance! I bought both the Magic palette and the Zulu palette and was going to review them both today, but I feared I would drown in swatches. I ran a poll on my Instagram and the Magic palette won!

Almost a year after the first instalment, I’m back with another Beauty Profile! In this series I focus in on one brand and discuss what I love about them, what they could improve, which are my ride or die products and what left me feeling a bit disappointed! I’ve been wanting to dedicate a post to one of my favourite brands of all time, Too Faced, for over a year now. But I kept postponing the post as every time I would plan to write it, Too Faced would reveal yet another amazing release on social media. I would fall in love and wait for it to finally be released and in my possession, only to have the cycle happen all over again! I can now safely say that I’m currently in a really good place with my Too Faced wish list at the moment. Nothing has peaked my interest, so I think now is the perfect time to write a Beauty Profile on the brand! So without anymore hesitation, let’s get into the post and if you enjoy it or find it helpful, please give it a “like” so I know!
Personally, in the beauty world, 2016 felt like the year of Kylie Cosmetics and burgundy eyeshadow shades – so it was only a matter of time before Miss Jenner released the ever so popular Kylie Burgundy Kyshadow Palette! Today, I’m finally reviewing it. I asked for this for Christmas and was lucky enough to receive it, so over the past few weeks I’ve been trying it out and I’ve finally settled on an opinion! I have never struggled to review a palette as much as I have with this. I went from wanting it desperately, excitedly using it, having my expectations not exactly matched, then completely loving it again. Below I break down everything from the price to the formula, how I feel about each shade, who I’d recommend this palette to and even mention a few dupes! So, let’s crack on and if you enjoy this review or find it helpful, please give this post a “like” so I know!
A couple weeks ago I picked up a few new bits and pieces from Too Faced and thought I’d finally review them! Too Faced is one of my favourite brands, if not my all time favourite. From their packaging to their concepts to the quality of what they release, to me, they just nail it every time. I was ecstatic when I saw they were finally releasing their own concealers and matte liquid lipsticks, so while I was buying those I also picked up one of their new liquid eyeliners!

YouTube’s Beauty Gurus have come a long way. From once just sitting in their rooms doing makeup tutorials and talking about their monthly favourites, to having millions of fans and being able to collaborate with iconic global makeup brands. It’s an understatement to say I’m incredibly proud of these people! So many creators now have collaborations and I’ve purchased quite a few in my time from my favourite YouTubers, so I thought I’d dedicate an entire post to reviewing their creations! I hope you enjoy this post and if you do, please give it a “like”!
It’s here! I’m finally reviewing the Violet Voss Holy Grail Eyeshadow palette! I ordered this baby off Beauty Bay back in August when it was in stock for a hot minute, and I’m so happy I was able to get my hands on it! Overall, I love this palette, just not for everyday use. It’s dramatic, deep, bold and full of warm toned, burgundy goodness, which is what I am 100% about, but I don’t find myself wanting to wear this to work or uni for exactly those reasons. I’ll soon be on holidays though and will have plenty of time and opportunities to experiment more with this palette! So, here are my thoughts on the palette and I hope you enjoy this review!
