Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette

With the skew of eyeshadow palette reviews on this blog, it’s no secret that I love an Urban Decay palette. I really like the concepts they have behind them and their eyeshadow formula is reliably good. One of their newer releases – The Born to Run palette – didn’t immediately catch my eye. Sure, it’s interesting in that it’s got a shade selection that marks … Continue reading Urban Decay Born to Run Eyeshadow Palette

Makeup Revolution Conceal & Define Concealers

There has been hype around these Makeup Revolution concealers for a while now. If you haven’t heard about them, where have you been!? I was a little late to join the bandwagon, only picking up my first of these a couple of months ago.

Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette

Where to even start with this palette… From beautiful burnt oranges to stunning brick red shimmers and smoky dark mattes, it is simply stunning.

Indeed, seeing all of the Urban Decay Naked … Continue reading Urban Decay Naked Heat Palette

I mean, the Urban Decay setting spray costs £23.50 – I’m not baller enough for that. It will have to be relegated to special occasion-wear … Continue reading Affordable Setting Sprays: From Rimmel to L'Oreal

I love mixing up my nail varnish collection and making sure that I don’t just … Continue reading 10 Great Nail Varnishes You Need In Your Collection

Barry M Flawless Matte Finish Foundation

I feel like drugstore brands are really stepping up their game when it comes to foundations. Barry M is definitely one of these brands. I haven’t bought anything from them in years but their Flawless Matte Finish foundation caught my eye. I was sold on the fact that it is oil-free and hydrating – an ideal formula for my combination to oily skin. I have … Continue reading Barry M Flawless Matte Finish Foundation

I’ve been using this MUA ‘Undressed’ Palette for a few months now, testing out the claim that it is a dupe for the Urban Decay Naked Palette.
