Swatches and an EOTD using The Balm's "Nude-Tude" Palette

Hi evryone! First before i get into things i want to say a huge thankyou for all of you're idea's and help on what to pick up in MAC from the USA,it was a huge help and whilst it has made my list significantly grow i am so grateful for you're suggestions and i cant wait to try them all out!
Over the last couple of months i have had quite a few of you ask for a review and swatches of the balm's "Nude-tude" palette,you asked so here i am delivering!
First off i want to say how much i love the balm at the moment! I have picked a few different products and palettes from them lately (more on that soon) and now i just want MORE!But onto the palette we are talking about today. I keep hearing/reading reviews of this palette and its constantly being compared to the naked palettes.Everyone see's colour differently but i really think that these palettes are quite different and find myself going between the 3 palettes for completely different looks,so if you have the two Naked palettes but dont want to try this because you think you might be doubling up i would still give it a go,especially if you love neutrals!

In the palette there are 4 matte colours and the other 8 are a variety of satin and metalic. The eyeshadows are such good quality,they are so pigmented and dont fade through out the day.If i had to have one gripe about anything i wish that they included a matte highlight colour,but thats just me being a bit picky.My two favorite colours in the palette are "sultry" which is the most perfect crease colour ever and "Sexy" which is a beautiful dark plum which puts a different twist on a smokey eye.

Left to right: Sassy,Stubborn,Selfish,Sophisticated



And this has been my simple EOTD lately using this palette....

If you would like to see any more looks using this palette or if i haven't answered one of you're questions please let me know :) thankyou for stopping by and dont forget to leave you're comments below i would love to know if you have tried this palette and what you thought of it?

"Knickers in a Twist" EOTD and i need you're help!

Hi pretty's! You may have noticed i have been a bit absent lately,and without giving you a ton of excuses my job has been crazy since Christmas which is good but not for my poor little blog! So all of my free time has gone to my fiance,daughter and planing our wedding which is coming up in the not too distant future :) 
So today i am sharing with you my EOTD which i created using some of my "Fyrinnae" loose eyeshadows that i have recently pressed (blog post on that coming soon) featuring one of my very favorite Fyrinnae colours "Knickers in a twist". Its this rich,very pigmented satiny deep grey which looks great on absolutely everyone. I have been wearing this look almost daily lately just because its kinda smokey without being too harsh.

Products used:
Inglot gel liner #74 (a really dark eggplant purple)
Maybelline colour tattoo in "Tough as Taupe"
Fyrinnae eyeshadows in:
Knickers in a twist
Snow leopard

I hope you guys like this look,its super easy and these colours look amazing on everyone! And before i go,i need you're help!!!! My sister is going to Hawaii for her honeymoon,so needless to say i hit her up to pay a little (or a big) visit to the nearest MAC counter (yes,i have my super excited face on right now). I have started  list of things that i want to try but i would love you to leave a comment below with things i MUST try. Whatever you like,something you have tried from MAC and now you cant live without,or even just a fun colourful eyeshadow you think is a bit different that i should try,i would appreciate it so much :) Thankyou for stopping by,i am so happy to be back and excited to see what you all recommend!

BYS 18 palette

Todays post is a very quick one,but something i HAD to share with you guys! I was recently in Kmart,and found my self in the cosmetics section (do you like how i used the word "found" like it was by accident lol) now im going to be honest,i have never really been a BYS fan. The few products of theirs that i have tried were pretty cheap and nasty so i have never really been compelled to buy more....until now. A palette of theirs caught my eye,i picked it up looked at the colours and put it back down again keeping in mind what i had thought of their other products before.I was just about to leave the cosmetics section when i decided to just bite the bullet and try the palette with the pretty colours....and i am so happy i did! This palette comes with 18 different colours that to me just screams Autumn. The eyeshadows much to my surprise are very good quality and so pigmented! Something else i like about this palette is whist there are no matte shades they aren't overly sparkly or frosted either they have more of a metallic finish so they aren't too over powering when used together. And the best part? This little gem was $7!!!

(sorry about the reflection)

 I was a bit backwards when swatching these i is from right to left in the palette and none of the colours have names.

This palette is definitely my best buy of 2013 so far! What do you guys think of these eyeshadows? Would you like to see a look using them?

Wet n Wild palette: Comfort Zone

Hi pretties! Todays post is the last part of my Wet n Wild 8 pan palette series this featuring the "Comfort Zone" palette. Now this is a great buy for those of you who are neutral gals but want to start experimenting with a bit of colour. This is still a very natural palette but with some very wearable,soft greens. I am already thinking up all of the Autumn looks i can create with this!

There are no names for the colours,these are the top 4 colours in the palette. These 4 are all very soft and pearly,great for highlight shades.

These are the 4 bottom shades in the palette,the one on the far left has stumped me. Whilst it is my favorite colour out of the eight i really cant understand why they used this colour in the palette it would of gone perfect in the purple "Petal Pusher" palette as its more of a purple-cranberry type of colour...

And here is a look i created using these eyeshadows...

I hope you guys liked this little series,i would love to know if there is anything else you would like to see on here i am always open to suggestions :) Have you tried the Comfort Zone palette?

Wet n Wild palette: Petal Pusher

Hi pretties,i hope you are having a fantastic weekend! Todays post is part two of the Wet 'n' Wild 8 pan palette series featuring the "Petal Pusher" palette. This palette would have to be my pick of the three,maybe because the colours are beautiful or maybe because i'm obsessed with purple...either way you need this palette in you're life! 

What i love about this palette is there are such a variation of shades both cool and warm to help create tons of different looks.

These eyeshadows dont have names,these are the top 4 colours in the palette.(LOVE the colour on the far right!)

These are the 4 bottom colours in the palette.The 1st and the 3rd colour are very similar except the 3rd colour has more of a cooler,blue-ish tone.

And here is a look i created using this palette...

Are you a purple fan? Have you used these eyeshadows? Share you're thoughts with me :) Thanks for stopping by i appreciate each and every one of you!

Wet n Wild Palette: Blue Had Me At Hello

Hi beauties,i hope you all had a fabulous new years! Today i'm bringing you one of a three part series featuring the Wet 'n' Wild 8 pan palette,today's being "Blue had me at hello". These palettes are such good value (i got mine from ebay for around $8 each) and such good quality,the eyeshadows are so pigmented,are true to tone and last all day. To me the only down side if any,is i wish there were more matt colours but the colours them selves are so pretty they make up for the lack of matt. Something i love about these palettes is they are so versatile with so many different tones you can create anything from a subtle day time look to a dramatic night time look.
"Blue had me at hello"

These colours dont have names,these are the top 4 eyeshadows in the palette.

These are the bottom 4 eyeshadows in the palette.

And here is a fun,bright look i created using these eyeshadows....

Overall i love these eyeshadows they are such good quality and so affordable. Have you tried these eyeshadows before?Let me know you're thoughts and stay tuned because the next post will be featuring the "Petal Pusher" palette :)
