Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit.

Hello my lovely's! 

In December I purchased the Anastasia Beverly Hills Contour Kit from Beautybay. It was on my Christmas list but my mum couldn't get it so I bought it when it came back in stock.

I'd heard so many good things in the beauty community about this palette that I was dying to try it out for myself! 

It was really hard to get my hands on living in the UK and there are only two sites that I know of that sell it currently. Beautybay and Cult.

The palette comes in two different tones Light/Medium or Medium/dark. I got the lightest shade as I'm as pale as a ghost!
The bronzers are all extremely pigmented and are great to create a strong contour. This palette would definitely be great for freelance makeup artists or just contour junkies!
The shade Sand is the only shimmer out of the 6 powders which I use on my cheek bones, centre of my nose and my cupids bow. I use a mixture of Banana and Vanilla under my eyes to set my concealer.

For my Contour I use Fawn to carve out my cheek bones and I use Havana to warm up my face and temples. I haven't used Java yet, it's more red toned and I'm not sure if it suits my complexion... maybe with a tan!
It is pricey at £39 but each powder is of great quality. If you were after a cheaper alternative then I highly recommend the Sleek contour kit. I was obsessed with that for years. It's brilliant quality and is under £10!

MAC Rose Pigment!

Hey Guys,

So about a while ago I bought my first pigment from MAC and I chose the Rose pigment.

I absolutely adore this pigment. It's so gorgeous. I love the way the light catches it and It looks red, pink and gold. 

You may think that MAC pigments are quite pricey and at £18 you'd be right! But it's not something you would use everyday and if you did, you only need a tiny amount each time so actually I think it's worth the price tag. 

You can use it dry or with a fixing spray to create different textures and uses for it. You could use it as a winged liner or just a pop of colour on the lid. 

I can't wait to get more and I also want to try other brands so list your favourites down below so I can check them out!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day my lovely's!

I hope you all have a wonderful day whether your single or in a relationship!

I got the chance to pick my present this year! As much as I love surprises I also enjoy picking something that I wouldn't really buy for myself!

I've wanted to try YSL for a while and I always catch myself staring at the Rouge Volupte lipsticks because the packaging is just bomb! 

They're just so luxurious and you can tell it's brilliant quality just by holding one! So I thought why the hell not!? 

I got it in the shade 1 Nude Beige, which is a nice natural pinky nude. I didn't want to get something too out of my comfort zone and never use it, so I went for this one. I'm so excited to use it but I also just want to stare at it for eternity! 

I've longed after the YSL black opium for so long now but just never thought about getting it. So when my boyfriend asked me what I wanted I knew I had this in my mind. I love the smell! It's like a rich vanilla scent. I find it very alluring and the black and blue glittered bottle is elegant and sultry! ;-)

This also came in a gift set with a YSL makeup bag, a mini sample of a YSL eye liner and a mini mascara sample. I'm excited to try them out too so I can see if this brand is worth investing in! 

I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope you were all spoilt rotten or spoiled yourselves!
