New faces

New brand Famous cosmetics have come out with a wide range of products and I decided to sample a few.


First up is a highlighter from Revolution which I got off eBay. It’s a beautiful colour but now onto the eyeshadow named Merged eyeshadow shade 6. It is a strong deeply pigmented colour and it looks beautiful in it’s marbled effect.


Next is a lipstick and lip gloss. The lipstick is called Lip Addict Spot Light. It’s a gorgeous creamy consistency that lasts the usual couple of hours before needing a top up coat. The packaging is cute as at the end of the lipstick is a flip up mirror with a little pot of lipstick for using with a lip brush.


The lipgloss from what I can tell is a regular lipgloss nothing special except the packaging has a light up lid when unscrewed and a mirror along one side of the bottle.

I have two more items left to show you but these are from Wet n Wild.
Firstly is a beautiful single eyeshadow called Plum Silva. It’s strongly pigmented and wears well on the lid.



And finally I have a wonderful little mini palette which I haven’t even worn yet, but the pattern and the colours make me excited to work with it soon.

What do you think to these purchases? Will you give Famous cosmetics a try?


Mixed haul

Today I have ELF, MUA and Clinique
Starting with the latter I got a beautiful blush cheek pop in the shade 02 Peach Pop. I apologise that all photos are wonky today. It is truly gorgeous look


Next is :








In order of Mocha Swirl, Berry mix and Butter Pecan these are duo eyeshadow creams that are so soft and buttery! Truly beautiful textures and colour with one swatch.

Next is the ELF Cream Eyeshadow made to line, shade and contour your eyes in Teal Party.







This is a HD Blush from ELF in the shade Headliner. This is a powerful little blush, a quarter of a pump will do both cheeks and even then it will probably need toning down. I looked like a clown until I got the hang of it.

Next to it is the beautiful Makeup Academy Undress Your Skin shimmer highlighter. Just look at it, it’s beautiful isn’t it? I’ve lost the swatch sadly though. And lastly we have MUA lipsticks which although nice, I am not as enamoured with as the rest of my haul. Gorgeous colours but I needed a gloss over them as they felt too dry on my lips. Left to right and bottom to top is Peachy Keen and Pouty Pink. The ends twist off to give a pot of colour to use a lip brush from as well as the main lipstick, nice but feels a bit gimmicky to me.




Tell me your experiences with these brands and products please>

ELF Palette

This is a cool eyeshadows palette from ELF. It says “The beautiful soft textures melt into the skin for vibrant colour that lasts. Convenient and easy to apply, just layer the colours to achieve your desired look. Apply wet or dry for a fabulous look that never creases or fades”




The eyeshadows feel buttery and spread gorgeously creating a beautiful look.

Do you think you would buy it? Or have you already tried it?
