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.
Swatches from L-R: Moon, Ginger, Angel, Love Bite, Kristen and Vixen.
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.
I can’t believe as I’m writing this, that this time next week it will be Christmas Day! Where on earth is the time going?!
This was such a different look for me to try, but I found this skirt which is so glittery in the best rainbow way (annoyingly hard to see in the photographs) and I wanted to style it up! Pastels in winter work so well and I thought this would be quite a fun day to evening look by adding in this sequin handbag.
Obviously you could team this skirt with bare legs but frankly it’s too cold and I hate my legs, so I opted for tights instead! I’m just going to call it granny chic 😉

As it’s summertime now, I wanted to give you an update on the make up I’ve been wearing lately! I’ve recently been on my honeymoon as you may know and the majority of this look I wore religiously from one day to the next as it’s so simple!
I’ve been going for a simple coppery/peach eye, using dark eyeshadow on my lash line so it’s super quick and I’m not faffing around for hours trying to do perfect eyeliner! I’ve also upped my highlight game after purchasing a certain beauuuutiful palette that I will be reviewing in a couple of weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for that!
