Beauty Blogger Recommended Palettes
I love palettes. I think they could actually be my most loved colour cosmetic of all. Whether it be an eyeshadow palette, a lip and cheek palette, or just an everything-in-one. There is something about having lots of pretty colours neatly packaged into one compact that gets me giddy, and apparently I’m not the only beauty blogger who feels that way.

To find out which palettes are popular with the people, I asked my pals in the Beauty Blog Coalition to share their absolute, one-and-only favourite palette and why.  Continue Reading

The release of the Naked 2 eyeshadow palette by Urban Decay was probably the biggest moment in many beauty addicts lives this year. Depending on which country you were in, December 1 or 2 was a date to remmeber. People all across America flooded the Urban Decay website but they sold out quick, as did consecutive releases since. If you were like me and not in the USA, you probably kicked and screamed at having no way of getting it.

My love for the first Urban Decay Naked Palette is quite strong, and it hasn’t wavered since obtaining it well over a year ago. Missing out on Naked 2 was just not an option for me. I needed it. Thanks to the amazing April from Glitter.Gloss.Garbage, the Naked 2 was obtained and heading my way. It arrived only a couple days ago but as I had no internet, it gave me time to really play with it and get an opinion.

Urban Decay Naked 2 Eyeshadow Palette

There are a lot of reviews and swatches floating around out there. Perhaps my post is completely unnecessary, but after playing for a while I realised the swatches I had seen online were nothing like how they appeared on my fair, pale, NC15-NC20 skin. I am doing this post for those of you who have skin like mine because there is a difference in how these colours work on our skin.

End of Year Sales Fashion Shopping Inspiration

The Boxing Day and End of Year sales are in full-swing. While this can be a fab time to pick up a great deal, it’s not such a money saver if you buy things you don’t need or really want. Having a shopping list of what to buy is one of my most valuable tips for being a savvy sale shopper. However, I’ll admit that sometimes there are things out there I didn’t know I needed. Sometimes, I need someone to introduce me to the things I didn’t know (or forgot) I needed. That’s what I’m offering you some end of year sales shopping inspiration by sharing some of the great goodies I picked up during the Cyber Week sales.

These are the beauty and fashion goodies I got during Black Friday, Cyber Weekend and Cyber Monday.  Continue Reading

Finding a good face cleanser shouldn’t be difficult but for me it’s one of those things I’m always looking to improve. I was recommended the Hylamide High Efficiency Face Cleaner as an all-in-one solution for makeup removal and skin cleansing.
