Nude Lipstick for every budget

I love a good nude lipstick. Something easy to wear, yet a lipstick that gives a wow finish. I have picked out my 10 most used nude lipsticks from the past few months for today’s post. One thing I will add is that for the most part I wear a lip liner with these lipstick. If you want a versatile lipliner, I can’t recommend Mac Whirl lipstick enough. It goes with almost every one of these lipsticks. Mac Faux There isn’t much lipstick left in my tube of Faux . I have worn this colour to death!!! Faux is a warm pink satin finish lipstick. This colour is so incredibly…

Urban Decay Naked Ultimate Basics palette review

Ok, so there is no denying, each time Urban Decay announces the release of a new palette, the internet, or at least the beauty addicts online, lose their minds! When it comes to eyeshadow palettes, for the most part, Urban Decay know what they are at and it is not surprising we get our knickers in a twist at the sniff of a new release. When UD announced the release of their Naked Ultimate basics palette, I honestly was so excited. A warm toned, all matte palette. This could not be anymore perfect for me. So when I got my hands on it, did it live up to my expectations? Yes…

Hit, Miss or Maybe : Concealers

As someone who has quite dark circles, I am incredibly hard and picky on the concealers I use. My concealer needs to not only cover my dark circles, but they must be comfortable, long wearing and above all they must not settle in my fine lines! Often with a concealer you can get a feel for how good it is on first use. However, some concealers need a little TLC on application, as not all concealer apply and work the same way. For todays post I am going to put some much loved concealers to the test. Some concealers that I love, will be ones others hate. While I know…

Urban Decay Afterglow 8 hour blusher

Before I even begin to talk about the blushers, can we just take a second to admire the absolute beauty that is the packaging and colours of the new Urban Decay Afterglow 8 hour blusher. I mean look at them! They are absolute beauties.   For the past few weeks I have trailed 3 colours from the new Afterglow 8 hour blushers, that were recently released as part of the Urban Decay summer collection. Urban Decay have really gone all out when it comes to colour, and while there is a colour to suit most, many of these shades are not for either the light-hearted or the heavy-handed. The After…

Urban Decay Revolution High-Colour Lip gloss

Ready for a lick of vibrant colour for your lips this summer? Well the Urban Decay Revolution High-colour lip gloss are everything you could want and more from a summer lip gloss. For the past few years, it seems that Urban Decay have spent a lot of time on the Naked path and while I am all for a little of their Naked goodness, it is great to see them introduce something new with these bright and bold, highly pigmented lip glosses for summer 2015. The new Revolution High Colour Lip gloss range has 14 shade available and range from Light pinks and nudes, all the way up to a…

Urban Decay Naked Basics 2 palette review

Urban Decay are real leaders when it comes to all things palettes. You would be hard pushed to find a lady who doesn’t own at least one of the Naked palettes. Once you mention the words Urban Decay and naked, our ears are sure to prick up and take notice. Last summer Urban Decay released another addition to their Naked palette family, the Naked 2 basics palette. It was met with mixed feelings from many the Naked lover, as people claimed it was far too like the original Naked basics palette and while yes they are similar, the Naked 2 basics leans a lot cooler than the Naked 1 basics…

The hunt for a Holy Grail Concealer

Finding a good concealer isn’t easy. What feels like silk on one person, might feel like cement for you. Everybody looks for something different from a concealer. Some want it to hide dark circles, while others may  want it to conceal spots. To help you in your search, I have picked out some of my favourite concealers for you to have a mooch through.Each and everyone of these concealers I love for their own individual reasons. While most are high end, I will do a more budget friendly post in a few weeks. I would love to know what your favourite concealers are, so leave me a comment down below,…

Urban Decay Naked Skin weightless complete coverage concealer

Urban Decay is not a brand that I find myself gravitating to often. I am not completely sure why I don’t give Urban Decay a look in that often, but there is an obvious lack of UD products in my rather large makeup collection. However, when Wayne Goss wrote about how the Urban Decay Naked Skin weightless concealer was a game changer, I knew I had to give it a go. From time to time, I suffer with dark circles. Some days are better than others, but for the most part they drive me insane, and it is a constant struggle to keep them covered. I didn’t hold out much hope…
