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!
