All I have to say about this product is wow. I am utterly astonished by how beautiful it is. There is a great balance between neutral and adventurous colours, as well as matte, shimmer, and sparkle as well.

I usually prefer neutral tones for my eyes, however I’m always up to experimenting by adding just a hint of a dramatic colour occasionally so I think this pallet will help me to get comfortable not just with colour but for more dramatic eye looks.

My favourite colours are Metamorphosis (periwinkle shimmer), Looking Glass (light pink shimmer), Salazen Grum (red/orange shimmer), and Kingdom (medium brown shimmer). Kingdom and Looking glass are pretty similar to other colours that you could get in the naked pallets while Metamorphosis and Salazen Grum are completely unique.

The brush its self is very different from the ones in the Naked pallets which I was very excited about when I found out. They’re skinnier and the blending brush is longer than the one’s in the Naked pallets. I usually just use the fatter blending brush in my Naked pallets for the majority of my eyeshadows and blending needs but I have actually been using the smaller side of this brush more than the blending side.

This pallet retails for $75 at Sephora and that is honestly such a steal when you consider that there are 20 colours which comes to $3.75 an eyeshadow. I would highly suggest buying this pallet or even considering buying it. I regret the fact that I never purchased the Alice in Wonderland one years ago, don’t make my mistake with this pallet because this pallet can very easily become iconic in years to come.

April 2016 Favourites

So looking back on past posts I’ve realized I never posted my favourites for the month of March (whoops) but I picked up a product or two that I’ve been loving for April so lets talk about those instead!

L’Oreal Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation in Classic Ivory

Ok at first I was a little iffy on this foundation, not going to lie. However after using it for the month of April it’s become a favourite of mine. I love the medium to build-able coverage and when I blend this foundation in with my beauty blender my skin looks flawless and I have actually received quite a bit of compliments wearing this foundation. One of my all time favourite things about this foundation is I don’t have to set it with powder.

Rimmel London Wake Me Up Concealer in fair

You can see my dark circles from across the room because as a university student, I don’t know what sleep is. This concealer not only cover my dark circles but brighten up my under eye area by creating a nice highlight. Add some setting powder on top of the concealer and you are set for the day!

I’ve mentioned the Kate Moss lipsticks before in my February favourites and while my opinion hasn’t changed, my collection has! I went from owning 1 to 5 in just a few short months! Recently I’ve been reaching for these instead of my higher end lipsticks!
