Best of 2017

Merry Christmas my loves!!! Sorry I’ve been a little M.I.A, I have been so busy the past week with family and being all festive but I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Like me I’m assuming you ate a lot and drank too much which is back firing now as I sip my 5th coffee of  the day and I’m still cleaning up wrapping paper… No shit my house was covered! But my girls were absolutely spoilt rotten and had the best day so that’s what matters!

So today I want to talk to you about what my favourite products were of 2017!! It was actually so hard to pick a few as I’ve fallen in love with so many products this year and I wanted to write a blog and not a fucking novel! So if you want to read about all the things that contributed to me living my best life then keep on reading!

First I give you the ‘JEFFREE STAR X MANNY MUA BUNDLE’! When I heard about this being released I was soooo excited and my sister in-law and I were going on about it and then the cutie set an alarm because I think it was released at like 3am Aus. time and she ordered it for me! The day she surprised me with it I could have cried! It came with two liquid lipsticks and a highlighter.

The shade ‘Daddy’ which is in the picture down below is a deep cool toned nude that looks so beautiful. This is one of my favourite nudes I own and it goes so well with a bright dramatic eye!

‘Daddy’ left, ‘I’m Shook’ right

The shade ‘I’m Shook’ is one of my favourite matte reds! Its not a heaps bright red shade it does seem to have a cherry tone to it but beautiful none the less. I love wearing this with a neutral eye or even a smoky eye! Both liquid lipsticks on me, don’t dry down too heavy or go crunchy either. Or like my sister in-law says ‘they make your mouth feel like an ass hole after too long of wear’ hahahaha!!! These can be purchased separately as well so if you only like one thing out of the bundle don’t fret! I love the formula of his products and have actually ordered some more of his new holiday collection which I cant wait to share with you.

‘I’m Shook’ left, ‘Daddy’ right

The Highlighter called ‘Eclipse‘ is everything!! It has a peachy, pinky undertone but its a cool tone highlighter. That makes no fucking sense I know but on my skin tone its amazing. Its quite suttle too but you can build it up for a more intense glow, depending on how extra I want to be!

 

Next is my ‘FENTY BEAUTY PRO FILTER FOUNDATION’ in shade 200. I was literally peeling potatoes when my alarm went off on my phone telling me it was available on Sephora and I jumped on my phone and was quickly trying to work out my shade using the Shade Finder which is actually spot on! I matched it with my ‘Maybelline Fit Me Foundation’ in shade 120 and the shade 200 in ‘Fenty’ is perfect so I highly recommend you trying the shade match system on Sephora to find your match if you cant get to a store! But I got it and was sooo happy with it! It has a runny consistency with medium coverage but is buildable if need be! It does dry down fast but not fast enough that you have to smash your fast with your beauty blender 100 miles a minute to get it blended in time but I found that since it dries so fast when applying concealer it does go slightly patchy so I found I just needed to blend my concealer out in sections and not let it sit for too long! Other then that its my favourite high end foundation!

 

Now I’m not 100% sure if this was released in 2017 or earlier and I’m honestly too lazy to look it up because what the fuck does it matter but the ‘KAT VON D LOCK IT SETTING POWDER’ in translucent is the shit! It doesn’t go cakey, it doesn’t crack or cause creasing.  It doesn’t cause flash back in photos and doesn’t wash me out either! I love baking under my eyes with it and blending the rest of the powder out. I love snorting it! Not really but you get my point! Approved. Love it. Buy it. Live your best lives!

 

This next product I was super scared to try! The ‘MAYBELLINE BABY SKIN INSTANT PORE ERASER’. I seriously thought this was going to clog my pores and ruin my life but I was pleasantly surprised! It smoothes out the skin leaving your foundation looking flawless! I will say still prime before applying this just in case it does cause break outs! This product is a great cheaper alternative to the Benefit Porefessional. I found no difference in the two! This is a staple in my makeup routine so get on it!

26102999_10155965171254137_939056532_n

This product is a skin care product and my friend actually got me onto this (shout out to Laurice White hair and beauty, follow her on Instagram and Facebook because she’s amazing!!!) T.N. DICKINSONS ALL NATURAL WITCH HAZEL. I purchase this from my local Woolworths and its literally like $7! I use this product after I take my make up off! It cleanses and tones the skin and also gets rid of any make up you’ve missed! This is my holy grail night time product and it has done wonders for my skin! Its cleared it up so much and helped my scarring! No matter how drunk I am before I go to bed I will still make the effort to take my make up off to use this!

26133127_10155965171319137_814115786_n
I was going to retake this photo but found it too funny how my stupid fucking reflection was in the Christmas decoration! HAHAHAHA! You are welcome!

For a drug store concealer this is by far the best you’ll find in my eyes! The ‘MAYBELLINE FIT ME CONCEALER’ has perfect coverage and a creamy consistency easy for blending! I go through this quite fast though which sucks and there isn’t much of a shade range but the shade light is fine with my complexion.

 

My favourite contouring palettes for the year are, shocker, ‘THE TOO FACED COCOA CONTOUR PALETTE’ and THE REVLON SCULPT AND HIGHLIGHT CONTOUR KIT in collaboration with Chloe Morello. Both have beautiful shades, blend out effortlessly and don’t look like poop on your cheeks which is always nice!

 

 

Now these palettes are so dear to my heart do I really have to write about how amazing they are again! THE ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS MODERN RENAISSANCE, THE JEFFREE STAR ANDROGYNY and THE JACLYN HILL X MORPHE PALETTE are my all time favourite eye shadows palettes I’ve purchased this year and Ill definitely cry if any of these run out in the near future! Pigmentation, colour and quality is so high I can not wait to see what else these brands have in store in 2018!

15 Minute Make Up Look and Serial Killers!

Did you sleep in? Do you have minimal time to get ready for work or an appointment? Or has your child gone down for a nap and your rushing to put a face on so you can feel like a human today? Or is that just me everyday… Either way today I have decided to show you just what I do when I’m literally fighting with time.

So when I say 15 minutes, I mean 15!! Not that I timed myself at all but i will generally listen to a Podcast when I do my make up, not to drown out my eldest daughter asking me 100 questions about what I’m doing (sort of am) but I just love it! True Crime podcasts are what I do in my spare time. Particularly ‘And That’s Why We Drink’. I never miss an episode. Just a small run down, its about two chicks, one who drinks wine and one who doesn’t mind a milk shake!! Em who tells a paranormal story and then Christine tells a story of a true crime event. As dark as the subjects are they are so fucking hilarious and I can not stop listening.. I’ve linked there site to there name up above, you’ve gotta check them out!

But back to the subject, I knew it had only taken me 15 minutes because I had only got 15 minutes into my podcast before my daughter had woken up! This is a regular occurrence so I’ve learnt to keep it minimal unless I want a pumpkin baby on my lap while I do my make up!

I get it though, you want to wear make up, you don’t have time or you cant be bothered! So I have created a look for you that took minimal time, minimal products and is super easy to do! Let me know what you think!

25520019_10155944565364137_492981165_n

So this is my idea of a quick and easy make up look! I know a few people (Shan) who needed a few hints and tips to create something simple for an everyday looks so I’ll take you through a step by step of products and how I applied them down below!

I started off with my ‘Too faced Hang Over Spray Primer’. Few little sprits over the face and that’s it! I then dotted the ‘Loreal Infalliable Total Cover Foundation’  in the shade light sand all over my face. Quick disclaimer, this is not my favourite drug store foundation. I had ran out of my old faithful ‘Maybelline Fit Me’. I don’t mind it as long as I’m not wearing it for too long as it doesn’t last on my face as long and goes patchy after a few hours!

For concealer I didn’t go too crazy. I used the ‘Maybelline Fit Me concealer’ in the shade light. Few dots under my eyes, on my chin and forehead and blended it out. And as always my ‘Kat Von D Translucent Powder’ I purchased from Sephora!

 

25592843_10155946320829137_915867799_o

I didn’t go all out with contour and bronzer! I just mixed the two cocoa shades together in the ‘Too faced Cocoa Contour Palette’ on my cheeks and just slightly on my forehead.

25530110_10155946321364137_1171607133_n
Shades used, Medium Cocoa and Dark Coco

For brows which for me is the longest part of them all, I use my ‘LA Girl brow pomade’ in the shade dark brown to out line my shape and then go in with a spooly to blend out all the product to end up with an ombre look! This is what id do with any look! 

Now for the eyes, so simple! I used my ‘Morphe 12NB palette’ which as you can see in the picture is a beautiful palette full of neutral shades that I love using on a day to day basis. I coated my lid with the matte brown shade 3rd on the bottom row and blended that in my crease and up to my brow bone, then using the 4th shade on the bottom row which is a beautiful red brown shade, I blended that colour through my crease for some definition. I then packed the beautiful subtle gold shade which is 3rd on the top row all over my lid and stopped just below my crease. The 2nd shade on the top row was used for my inner corner just to brighten up my eyes. I then used my ‘Essence Beauty Lash Princess Mascara’

 

For highlighter I used my ‘Jeffree Star Highlighter’ in Eclipse on my cheek bones.

25593041_10155946320634137_580019509_o-e1513738350493.jpg

For lips I used the ‘NYX Butter Lips’ in the shade ‘Boardwalk Promenade’ which is one of my favourite nude lip sticks by NYX and this little guy comes everywhere with me because its so versatile!

 

Then to finish it off I sprayed my ‘Toofaced hangover Primer and Setting Spray’ to lock everything in!

 

So here is the final look kids! 15 minutes! I shit you not! I may still be wearing my pajamas shirt and no bra but my face is public ready without much effort at all! What do you guys think? Give it a go! Press that snooze button a few extra times and let me know how you go in the comments! I will remind you, I do have two kids and after 5 years I can make my swamp monster head into something more bearable! Make Up is all about practice girls and aren’t we all beautiful on the inside anyway? Or after our first morning coffee I mean?

Jaclyn Hill Palette

Now I know I had this in my first post I did showing you my Eye Shadow Palettes but this slice of fried gold has so many beautiful shades and finishes I felt like it needed its own post just so I can show you just how amazing it really is and if there’s any guys or girls out there looking for the perfect Christmas present, this would be the best choice for the makeup lover in your life! And if you’re anything like me and haven’t started shopping yet then you’re welcome! Has anyone been to the shops since the silly seasons started?? Its nuts! People everywhere ramming there trollies to get through! I went in today to go pick up my daughters Santa photo which are absolutely adorable!! Although I feel like all the Santa’s for those photos always do that creepy as fuck blank stare in every photo. Maybe its like a must, in the interview when they apply for a job, “can you do a vague creepy blank stare into the camera, yes? YOURE HIRED”. Hahahaha!

creepy-santa-pics-vintage-terror

I explained in my post how wild the shipping was for Morphe, ordering the palette plus shipping was insane. Especially since you’re ordering from America which freaks me out not knowing if my palette will arrive in one piece but luckily for me it did! Shipping didn’t take too long either, it was under 2 weeks which was great considering the overseas factor and I had to take into considering the popularity of the palette and the delay they would of had with excess orders so kudos to you Morphe, ya did good!

Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Palette

24726475_10155906734474137_1179546522_n

This palette has a range of colours and finishes perfect for creating literally hundreds of looks. There are satins, mattes and shimmers. It gives you the potential to create neutral looks and full glam looks for any occasion!

25395168_10155932951839137_1877249294_n

The mattes are buttery and blend seamlessly. I felt I didn’t need to over work the colours at all while blending and there were a nice range of shades to use as a base which I love! The first 2 rows of this palette I use everyday, partically the shade ‘M.F.E.O’ and ‘Pooter’. I will generally coat my lids with these shades blending them out just above my crease and add mascara and I’m good to go!

24740550_10155906734629137_200587752_n
Shades Left to Right, Enlight, Beam, Silk Crème, M.F.E.O, Faint, Sissy, Little Lady, Creamscicle, Butter, Pooter, Pukey, Hunts, Fire Work, Queen

The Shimmers are stunning! I use them with my finger or just a packing brush or for a bit more intensity I will use a damp brush and they come out stunning! My favourite shimmer shades would be ‘Sissy’, ‘Obsessed’, ‘Beam’ and ‘Queen’. I use ‘Beam’ a lot in my inner corner and I’m obsessed with putting ‘Obsessed’ all over my lid (see what I did there).

24740632_10155906734949137_542472679_n
Shades Left to Right, Obsessed, S.B.N, Hillster, Roxanne, Jacz, Buns, Cranapple, Royalty, Twerk, Hustle, Meeks, 24/7, Chip, Mocha

Shades Left to Right, Abyss, Soda Pop, Central Park, Enchanted, Diva, Jada, Pool Party

What’s not to like about this palette honestly! I have nothing bad to say about it! Besides how my bank account looked after buying it but its definitely worth it!

Ive created a look using this Palette for you all to see! I did a warm toned glam look and completely stepped out of my comfort zone! I hope you all like it and let me know what you think in the comments below!

I started off by using the shade ‘Silk Crème’ as a base colour. I then started darkening up my crease with the shade ‘Pooter’ and blending it up towards my brow bone. I then dipped into ‘Roxanne’ to deepen the colour and add a rich warm maroon to it! I then went in with ‘Hunts’ and put then on my outer corner  and i blended it out for a bit of depth. Now before adding my shimmer, I grabbed my ‘Too Faced Born this way concealer and put a tiny dot on the inner part of my lid and blended it out to just when my crease begins and then went over top of the concealer with the colour ‘Sissy’. It was quite bright enough for me so I went in with ‘Obsessed’ with my finger and just lightly dabbed my finger over ‘Obsessed’. For my under eye, I used ‘Roxanne and Hunts’ just under my lash line and blended it out with a tiny bit of ‘Pooter’ on my brush. I added ‘Beam’ to my inner corner to finish it off! What do y’all think!?! I was super happy with it!

25323998_10155930648269137_592601323_n

So this concludes my review on The Jaclyn Hill X Morphe Palette, well it was pretty much me just telling you to buy it already because its that amazing!!!! I highly recommend this to anyone as its so versatile and can be used in so many different ways!

BYS or BS?

Hey friends! Hope you’re having a lovely night so far! I’m talking from the past right now and I’m sitting on the couch eating chocolate alone on a Saturday night, it’s wild! My fiance’s away so it was just me and the girls today and I dont know what it is with them but no shit they go nuts! Telling Lucy she needed to get in the bath and she claps back with, “Mum I dont need one tonight and don’t forget, I’m always right!” hahaha yeah sure thing ya little… but she had a bath and I let her play for halfy but when I went to tell her it was bedtime she was sitting on the floor colouring in so cutely, I asked her what she was drawing and she said, “I’m drawing what the inside of your body looks like, see, the red is your blood!”…. but getting on with life and pretending my child isn’t one of the kids off Village Of The Damned, lets get into it!

So, BYS or BS? That is the question. I purchased 3 palettes from my local K-mart for $12 each! Definietly not upset about it. I’ll be swatching and doing an eye look on each palette so you can get a good understanding on my thoughts on these! Ok, first of all, the packing! It’s cute! A bit plasticy and light which is fine. It feels like it would be great for travelling! The mirror looks like I’m looking in the mirror at the fucking fun house show ride but none of that really matters to me, I just want the shadows to work!

 

BYS Peach Eyeshadow Palette Review

Swatches Left to Right, Dainty, Dazzling, Slay, Pamper, Lavish, Cheeky, Peachy, Dashing, Devoted, Enticing, Brazen, Flashy

They ‘BYS Peach Palette’ actually swatched so well! The metallics are creamy and have incredible pigmentation. The mattes are beautiful and arent too chalky either. I will say though the lighest shade in the palette  didnt quite show up on my skin but might just be because my skins the same colour haha! Who Knowssss…

So I did a lil eye look for you all! I thought I’d use the pinky shades in this! I used the shade ‘Devoted’ for my base colour, then I used ‘Pamper’ in my crease and blended that out all over my lid. I then packed on the shade ‘Lavish’ with my finger as it was much easier than a brush and show a lot more shine. I finished it off with ‘Dainty’ under my brow! I hope you guys like it!

 

 

BYS Nude 3 Palette

The colour pay off on the ‘BYS Nude 3’ is just as nice! I’m loving the matte shades in this. Perfect to use as a transition and base for any eye look. The metallic are so nice and creamy and I can definetly see myself using them in a neutral everyday look. I’m not one to use cool tones, I’m more of a warm toned kind of gal when doing my eyeshadow but the shades Charcoal and Smoke are so stunning and unique to my collection and I can’t wait to play around with them!

Swatches Left to Right, Cocoa, Bronze, Honey, Golden, Smoke, Charcoal, Soot, Chocolate, Espresso, Taupe, Caramel, Cream

In this eye look using the ‘Nude 3’ I thought I’d do a smoky eye, using shade ‘Caramel’ as my base shade then going in with ‘Chocolate’ in the crease. I then went in with the shade ‘Soot’ to darken up the crease and lid making sure it all blended seamlessly. I then covered the shade ‘Charcoal’ over my lid. I did find the darker shades in this Palette were a little harder to blend but it just took a little longer. I feel it worked and I was still happy with the end result. Feel free to add you’re comments down below!

 

BYS Berries Palette

So I had heard that this was the perfect dupe for the ‘Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Rennaisance Palette’ so I also swatched that to compare! Not bad right???!!! If you’re on a budget why wouldn’t you purchase the ‘BYS Berries!’ They aren’t exactly the same, you can see the Modern Rennaisance pigmentation is slightly brighter and the glitters are a bit more glittery but they are pretty damn close!

The shades used in the ‘Berries Palette’ to created this look were, ‘Toffee’ for my base colour, I then applied ‘Cherry Bomb’ in my crease blending it in with ‘Toffee’ so there were no harsh lines. I then packed ‘Antique’ on my lid using my finger. I used ‘Radiance’ in my inner corner. 

 

 

Overall, I’m shook! The quality is amazing! I’m so happy to say that BYS Cosmetics is far from BS!  We’ve all been in the position where we wanted bangin make up but you’re body selfishly needs food to survive as a priority, fret no more! BYS is the answer! I’ve linked below there website and don’t forget you can also get these beauties from your local K-mart!

Too Faced Products Review

A few weeks ago my mum and step dad rented some boojee place down the beach for a few days. Since my family are so spread apart its the only time we could really meet up and do the Christmas thing! It was so lush! Two story, indoor heated pool, balcony and directly across the road was the beach! My daughters had so much fun! My sister and her friend made lethal cocktails, I layed out in the sun for an hour too long and only my shins got burnt which was fucking weird BUT they also spoilt me with a Mecca bag full of Too Faced heavenly goodness…

hs

 

Ok so I wasnt all that surprised about getting these considering I wrote them a list of what I wanted but living in a rural area and having family in the city you’d be lying if you said you didn’t do it! Haha!

Too faced Hangover 3-in-1 Spray and face primer cream

Straight off the bat, that cream thoughhhh. Love it! It smells so fruity and tropical but not like over powering and sickly. It feels like a really smooth and light moisturiser and is quite cold which made it feel so nice on my face. Its silicone free too which i love, silicon based products do clog my pores up so if you have the same problem I’d recommend trying this! A little goes a long way too so one pump is all you need. I have been told I have a pin head though so make your own mind up on that hahaha! It does leave your face feeling tacky which for me is ideal and really helps to apply foundation and makes it last longer. After about 6 hours of wear, I didn’t find my face oily and my makeup didn’t seem to have moved. I should of done a before and after shot. Are you guys interested in seeing that? Let me know in the comments section down below ❤

I was very intrigued about the Hangover spray. It claims to be a 3-in-1. A primer spray, a setting spray AND a refreshing spray. I don’t really know what that last one really means but I just took my make up off, toned and then sprayed it on before i went to bed. It did feel refreshing, did I think it did anything? Hmmm no, and when it dried my face went real tight which wasn’t horrible but I’d rather used a moisturiser. Priming my face before applying makeup I actually really enjoyed! My face wasn’t as tacky as I like which I’d get with a cream but it didn’t make my makeup oily, it lasted just as long so i was happy! Now when using it as a setting spray DO NOT do what i did… Press the nozzle down all the way and hard. Otherwise its like someones pissing on your face and you’re left with big drop marks ruining your foundy. Press down hard and all the way really makes it a nice fine mist. Hold it a little further away then usual too becuse alot comes out! What I loved about this as a setting spray is when it dries down you can feel your face tighten and set but its not a heavy feeling. Like back in the day when you use to use hair spray because you didn’t know setting spray existed… or was that just me?

Toofaced Hangover 3-in-1 Spray

 

The Too faced Hang Over Primer Spray and Primer cream does get the tick of approval from me! I didn’t get any nasty reactions or break outs which is always good but if you do decide to purchase these and your skin doesn’t agree with it don’t keep using it!

 

Too Faced Born This Way Concealer

The Too Faced Born This Way Concealer which is in the shade light is such a stunning shade on my skin. It perfectly highlighted my under eye and didn’t give me heckaz crows feet and under eye wrinkles so I’m sold!

24992337_10155914277004137_484295399_n
Too faced Born This Way Concealer

I sometimes find some concealers go really patchy and weird after a few hours of wear but this one didn’t move. It blended out nicely as well and didn’t disrupt my foundation! There are 16 shades available too which is great!

Too Faced Cocoa Contour Palette

I was so excited to try the Cocoa Contour Palette! I’d heard so much good things and they didn’t disappoint. It blends itself, no word of a lie! The palette I have is in medium which is perfect for my complexion!

Too Faced Cocoa Contour Palette

It comes with a cool toned contour shade, a bronzer, a matte highlighter and a shimmer highlighter. It also comes with a contour buki brush.

Contour Shades Left to Right, Light Cocoa, Medium Cocoa, Dark Cocoa, Pop of Light

Ok, so before I get into my thoughts on this palette, can we just take a moment to admire the packaging…. its fucking adorable and to top it off, it legit smells like chocolate! I literally want to lick it! When I finish contouring my face I can smell it for ages and then I crave chocolate, blessing but a curse!

Swatches top to bottom, Pop of Light, Medium cocoa, Dark cocoa, Light cocoa

Now there are a few pros and cons on this. I used the palette on my face in the picture below just so you can see how it looks on my skin.

I used Light cocoa under my eyes and forehead to lighten up those areas and it worked really nicely! It didn’t disrupt the concealer under the eye and the colour pay off wasn’t too washed out and white. The shade Dark cocoa is my absolute all time favourite shade for contouring now. It chisels dem cheek bones like nothing I’ve ever used! I used Medium cocoa to bronze up my cheeks and forehead slightly just to darken up those areas. It wasn’t too orange which I was stoked about! Nobody wants that orange head band! I was so happy with how it applied, didn’t turn out muddy what so ever and like i said above, it literally blended itself! The Pop of Light shade which is the highlighter is a bit chalky and was quite light which did disrupt my bronzer. It also had a lot of chunky gold glitter flecks which were distributed onto my cheeks when I used it which I wasn’t a fan of, pretty none the less just not my thing. I really really tried to like the brush but I’m just being real and I didn’t. It was kind of stiff and when i pressed it into the colour pan it really dug into it which caused a lot of fall out. When using it on my face it did not blend evenly. I looked like that Lindsay Lohan court photo, has anyone seen that? Never mind, i made it work…

Overall this is my all time favourite contour palette, seriously, just buy it. This isn’t sponsored, just trying to look after my gals! Price point is reasonable too, I’ll be ringing mumbre (mum) as soon as this runs out to get me another.

 

Thank you again my loves for following me on this blogging journey! I hope you’re enjoying it as much as I am doing it! Stay tuned for plenty more to come, I have so many awesome things coming up in the future! Don’t forget to follow me on instagram @beautifulgossip or my snapchat @hayleylucycally. ❤

Ps, I couldn’t help but leave you with this, see what I mean now? That was me after using that brush, it cant be unseen….

Eye Shadow Collection

 

 

My first post on my blog and I’m so excited! I’m thinking I’ll post at least once a week for you all! I’m starting off with a big post, My Eye Shadow Palette Hoard. My god I’ve accumulated some stuff over the years but I 100% blame all the amazing beauty brands that have been releasing such amazing products and Afterpay! Haha! So I’ll post photos of products and if you have a serious problem like me and want to purchase any of these items the websites will be tagged also. Anyways, lets hit it to it!

My Eye Shadow Collection

(well some of it anyway)

Jeffree Star Palettes

My Jeffree Star Palettes, I got my greasy mitts on these bad boys and oh. my. god. no words. All his products are vegan and cruelty free which is just the cherry on top!

Jeffree Star Palettes

The Beauty Killer Palette is so beautiful! I don’t reach for it like some of my other palettes but if you’re a collector and love Jeffree Star ya gotta!! Real talk though, there are some negatives! That pink… can’t see myself wearing it to take my daughter to Kindy but its still stun. The glitter shade, ‘rich bitch’ is thick af so keep that in mind and don’t go too cray as it did crumble a bit! My favourite shade in The Beauty Killer palette would have to be Courtney, its the perfect transition colour for any look and i sometimes just use that shade on the lid for a more casual look and when i say casual i mean because i slept in and I’m in a rush…

The Androgyny palette. What’s not to love really! The shadows are buttery, blend able and so easy to work with! You can create so many different looks with this! Its so hard to pick a favourite in this palette as they are all so nice but Deja Vu is absolutely amazing! The formula for this colour is perfection but Jeffree wouldn’t release anything less.

Kat Von D Shade and Light Eye

Kat Von D Shade and Light Palette has a special place in my heart! My fiance actually stalked Sephora like a creep for weeks before deciding on this for me and he picked perfectly! I love this palette and everything about it! The pigment in these colours are INsane so be light handed! They are buildable too, for an everyday look or a dark smokey eye! If i had to pick one eyeshadow palette to use for the rest of my life I’d 100% pick this one! No negatives just love ❤

This palette is so versatile and you can create so many beautiful looks with this. I’ve even used some of the colours to contour my face!

Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance

Anastastia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance Palette. The hype is real!!! For months I was tossing up whether to buy this and not to mention it’s constantly sold out on Sephora. So for my birthday last month, my girlfriends bought me a Sephora voucher and it just so happened to be in stock! I was all up in that! It’s truly beautiful. You could honestly do so many different eye looks with this palette whether it be neutral looks or something a little more out there and glam. The limit does not exist!

Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Palette

Morphe X Jaclyn Hill Palette. I cried ordering this palette and receiving it. The shipping is actually wild! All up with shipping this would have cost almost $100! But was it worth it? Yes, yes it was… it’s stunning. Every single colour in this is just beautiful. Morphe have always had such high quality products but this is just on another level. The mattes blend out effortlessly and the shimmers are so beautiful, whether you’ve used a wet or dry brush! Regardless of the prices, don’t let it scare you! It’s so worth it! Just don’t tell my fiance how much it was hahaha!

Once again I have no favourites, but I’m so in love with the formula of these colours and the pigmentation is amazing!

aaaaa

 

Overall, these palettes are stunning and I’m so lucky to have them in my collection. I highly recommend all of them, they’re so versatile with whatever style of eye shadow you are going for! These are just a few of many and I look forward to showing you what else I have!

I hope you enjoyed my first post! Please follow, like or even leave a comment ❤
