Kylie Jenner Holiday Collection with Swatches

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

As you probably know, Kylie Jenner’s latest release has been her holiday collection and I managed to pick up a couple of the new pieces including the new Kyshadow palette and the mini matte liquid lipstick set.

I love the jewel tones of the eyeshadows in this palette and most of them are very pigmented; from the swatches my favourites have to be the shimmers as they are buttery smooth, some of the matte shades felt a bit chalky. It’s so hard to photograph these due to the metallic packaging and my photos really don’t do it justice! It also has a mirror which is the first for her Kyshadow palettes.

Swatches from L-R: Sugar Cookie, Frosty, Chestnut, Mittens, Winter, Nutcracker, Gingerbread, Evergreen, Silent Night

The mini matte liquid lipsticks are small…! Smaller than I thought but a perfect handbag/ travel size. They look incredible and the size actually would make them much easier to apply for me than other liquid lipsticks. Four of the shades are from the permanent collection and two are exclusive releases which are Angel and Vixen. From the swatches you can see that Vixen seems to be quite patchy so it’ll be interesting to see what it looks like on the lips.

I’m going to be doing a New Years Eve makeup look using some of these products next week and I will be able to give you my thoughts on how they work.

Autumn Makeup Look Using Morphe 35P Palette

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Hi Everyone,

I’ve wanted a Morphe palette for such a long time and I was always unsure which one to go for but I’ve recently been really into purple make up looks and when I saw the 35P palette, I knew it would be perfect.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

As you can see there are a huge amount of shades and it was really affordable. The shades range from everyday nudes and browns through to reds and purples which are perfect for this time of year.

I wasn’t sure what the quality of the shadows would be like but from the couple I have tested, I am very impressed. I did have to apply one of the more glittery shades with my finger rather than a brush for more pigmentation but it wasn’t a big deal and it made the colour pop so much.

Products I used to get this look;

Eyebrows – Maybelline Masterbrow Palette
Foundation – Dior Star 020
Powder – Makeup Obsession Contour Powder Fair
Bronzer – Makeup Obsession Contour Powder Light
Blusher -Max Factor Creme Puff Blush Gorgeous Berries
Highlight – Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit That Glow – Dripping In Gold
Mascara – Top Lashes – L’Oreal Volume Million Lashes Fatale
– Bottom Lashes – Revlon Ultra Volume
Lipstick – L’Oreal Gold Obsession Plum Gold

For my eyes; I used 5 shades from the Morphe 35P Palette. I used No. 1 all over my eye and up to my eyebrows (I didn’t use any eyeshadow primer), No. 2 over my eye socket up to the crease, No. 3 is the shade I added with my finger on the inner half of my eye and the colour was incredible, I then added No. 4 on the outer corner of my eye and I smoked this out and blended it in with No. 5 into my crease, which I also used underneath my eye for a smoky eye look.

You can find the Morphe 35P palette here.

I am so excited to use more of the shades in this palette and I’m definitely adding a couple onto my Christmas list!

Are there any other Morphe palettes you think I should try?

Much Love,

Hi Everyone,

I popped into town the other day and spotted that Superdrug had 3 for 2 on all of their makeup… Dangerous! So I got a little spendy and I thought I’d show you what I got from there and Boots!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

L’Oreal L’OR Highlighter – £4.99

I’d heard Alix from I Covet Thee on youtube rave about this and I really wanted to try it for myself. I expected it to be much more expensive but I was pleasantly surprised. I haven’t used it on my face yet, but from swatching it, it has an almost velvet texture.

Barry M Matte Lipstick – 179 – £4.99

This is one of the new matte lipsticks from Barry M and I just fell in love with the colour!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

MUA Luxe Eyeshadow Palette – Enchanted – £6.00

I can’t get over how pretty this palette is and I’m so excited to try it. It really reminds me of the Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette but around £50 cheaper! I’m not sure on the quality of the eyeshadows but I’ll keep you updated once I’ve tested it.

Garnier Moisture Bomb Face Mask – 99p

I actually tried this mask the night that I got it and after trying other sheet masks, it is one of my favourites. The product didn’t drip off and go everywhere like others do and it clung to my face so it felt like it was really working. My skin didn’t feel very soft afterwards but it looked very moisturised and brighter. For the price (it’s usual price is £1.49) it’s worth a try if you have dry skin like me.

Max Factor Creme Puff Blush – Gorgeous Berries – £8.99

I haven’t had a berry blush shade before and this just looked so pretty! I’m all about the autumn make up at the moment and this fits in perfectly.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

MUA Luxe Glow Beam Liquid Highlight Cushion – £5.00

This is another new release from MUA and it’s a cushion highlight which I’ve never tried before. I have swatched it and it’s quite subtle, but I think it will work well layered under a powder highlight to ensure that it doesn’t budge all day!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

NYX Matte Lipsticks – Eurotrash and Tea Rose – £6.50 each

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Makeup Obsession Build Your Own Palette – Palette – £6.00 and each pan – £3.00 each

  • Top Row from Right to Left – Contour Powder C102 Light, Contour Powder C101 Fair, Highlight H103 Bronze
  • Bottom Row from Right to Left – Banana Powder C111, Blush B112 Bloom, Highlight H104 Moon

So Boots now have something called a Makeup Emporium in some of their stores and they have one in Northampton. You can test lots of different makeup they have selected and you can build your own face or eyeshadow palettes. I really wanted to build a face palette so I can take it with me when I travel. They have everything you need from contour powders, blush and the most incredibly pigmented highlighters!

Have you been buying any of the new Autumn make up releases?

Much Love,
