Kylie Cosmetics Burgundy Palette | Review, Swatches + Dupes

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!

Mini Too Faced Haul + Reviews

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! I hope you enjoy this post and find it helpful and if you do, please give it a “like”!

Reviewing YouTube Beauty Guru Collaboration Products

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”!

Violet Voss Holy Grail Eyeshadow Palette Review

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!

Kate Moss 15th Anniversary Lipsticks Review

Rimmel London has recently celebrated their 15 year partnership with supermodel Kate Moss by releasing a limited edition collection of her favourite lipstick shades! There are six shades in the range consisting of three of Kate’s favourite reds and three of her favourite nudes. I’m a neutrals gal and the nude collection was right up my alley, so when I saw them half price I jumped at the chance and bought all three! Here are my thoughts on them and I hope you enjoy this review!

Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Kit Review

First of all, I’m alive! I’ve been sick and out of action the last couple of days and had to forfeit my second blog post last week, but today I’m back with a quick product review! I remember months ago saying “wow I’ll never own a huge contour kit, who needs all those shades?”. Well, look what we have here. Today I’m going to be reviewing the Kat Von D Shade + Light Contour Kit which I picked up the other month from Sephora. Long story short, while I haven’t tried out heaps of contouring products or kits, I do really like this palette, so let’s get on with the review!

Empties, Regrets and Reviews 2

Over the last few weeks I’ve ended up with quite a decent collection of empty beauty, skincare and haircare products, so I thought now was the perfect time to do another Empties, Regrets and Review post. In this series I briefly review each empty product and decide whether it was regret or if I’ll repurchase it. My most popular post to date on this blog was the first instalment of this series that I wrote back in March, and you can read that post here! So, let’s get on with the empties and I hope you find these mini reviews helpful!

Zoeva Cocoa Blend Eyeshadow Palette Review

Last month when I visited Sephora for the first time a brand I was so excited to see was the Zoeva stand! Zoeva made a name for themselves with their amazing brushes, but since then they’ve branched out and made their own cosmetics. Their brushes are expensive because they’re such good quality, so naturally I expected their makeup to carry that same hefty price tag. However, I was pleasantly surprised to see their 10 shade eyeshadow palettes are only $39! They have quite a few to choose from, but I instantly gravitated to the warm colours in the Cocoa Blend palette. I say this all the time when I review a new eyeshadow palette, but this one has definitely become a favourite of mine, so I’m so glad I picked this one up and not another one! I hope you enjoy this review as much as I enjoy the palette!

All That Glitters | Highlighter Review + Comparison

It’s safe to say I’m well and truly on the highlighting bandwagon – it only took me a solid year or so. I tend to jump on “trends” when they aren’t even trends anymore because I’m that slow and indecisive on what to buy. A few days ago I realised that while I don’t own every highlighter on the market like others, the ones I do own are quite popular and accessible. It was only when a girl I know posted in a Facebook beauty page asking for a comparison did I realise “wait, I have both of those, and I can help them decide which to buy with some swatches”. I thought it would be helpful to do a post reviewing and comparing the highlighters I have, so here are my thoughts on the Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette, the Balm’s Mary Lou-Manizer, and the BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Pop Shimmering Skin Perfector!
