Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick Eye Palette - Raw Sugar


After seeing this little palette all over the internet, i had to pick one up. The gorgeous shimmer brick eye palette contains 10 stunning sparkly shades, perfect for the Christmas party season!

The palette is very small, great for throwing in your handbag or for travelling with.. And also comes with a mirror - always handy.

The shades are beeeeeeeeeeeautiful, all sparkly and unique in their own way. They apply super easily with no fallout, and blend like a dream. There isnt a matte shade in the palette (hense the name - shimmer brick) but that doesnt bother me. 

If your not into the shimmery eyes,  you could always use it as a highlighter as it is still a shimmer brick. I cant get over how gorgeous this eye palette is.. Ive been using it everyday since i picked it up!

If you get the chance to pick this up, you must! Its a beauty, and a must have for any makeup lover.

Mac Strobe Cream


Due to the awful, miserable UK weather, my skin has seriously dried out and is super dehydrated and dull looking. I was looking for something that could brighten my complexion up without drying it out (powder highlighters).

Strobe Cream has been on my wishlist for ages, and im super happy to have finally picked it up. I apply strobe cream as a primer/moisturizer before my foundation to give me my skin some extra glow, making it look for radiant and healthy. 

Ive always looked dewy, highlighted looking skin, and this is perfect for a more natural glow, without adding 'sparkle'. Its subtle, and works amazing. It would be perfect for a beginner whos looking for something to give them a natural dewy look. Its not a heavy moisturizer, it sinks in fast and leaves the iridescent finish to the skin.

I love how brightening strobe cream is, and its now one of my everyday favourite products!

Lush Haul


After seeing so many Lush hauls recently, and seeing how obsessed my friend, Chantelle, is with Lush,  ive been wanting to place an order for ages! I loved the look of all the Christmas goodies but the pink goodies caught my eye!

Candy Mountain Bubble Bar - I havent used this one yet, but ive heard when crumbled into the bath water, it creates lots and lots of bubbles! Its super pretty, frosted pink and white.

Snow Fairy Shower Gel - so so so so yummy! The candy floss scented shower gel is so delicious and smells a dream. If your a sweet, candy smelling lover, this is for you. Snow fairy contains tiny little glitters and leaves the skin feeling super soft.

Snow Fairy Sparkle Shimmer Bar - this smells so sweet and yummy, i cant wait to use this, although i see no shimmer... 

Magic Wand Bubble Bar - I love how this gorgeous bubble bar gives your bath a pink, bubbly look.. It can be used a few times too! The scent is one of my faves, so sweet and yummy!!

Sex Bomb Bath Bomb - ive used this bomb before, and i love the calming scent this bomb gives! I love how it turns the bath into a gorgeous lilac pink shade!

Urban Decay Naked Skin Foundation

I've been obsessed with trying out new foundations recently, and decided to give Naked Skin by Urban Decay a go! I picked up the shade 4.0 and its a perfect match for me. 



I love the packaging, and love that it comes with a pump. I love how you can really control how much product comes out the pump. This foundation retails for £27,and is one of the most expensive foundations i have tried. 

The formula is very lightweight, blendable and pretty runny. This foundation blends like an absolute dream, and sinks in to the skin perfectly - no cakeyness at all. 

The shade is perfect for my skintone. It has a more yellow tone to it which i like. The coverage is medium, but definetly buildable. I go in with a thin layer, then go in with an extra layer over areas that need more coverage (my cheeks). The finish is satin, and really leaves the skin looking healthy, radiant and glowy.

I found this foundation lasted a good 8-10 hours on me without fading, or getting patchy. I did get slightly oily down my nose as usual, but set that instantly with my blotting powder.

Naked Skin is my new favourite foundation and ive worn it every single day since purchasing it. I love the coverage, the finish and the radiant natural glow this foundation gives me. I would highly recommend this foundation, and i will definetly be repurchasing!
