Palettes, Pastels and A Hint of Tint




It's been a while since I've taken things back to beauty around these parts, so this month I'm bringing it back in a big way. There's going to be a few skincare-specific posts so keep your eyes peeled. Today however it's all about the makeup. There's the palette I bought in a bit of a 'treat yo'self' moment, an eye brightener I'm sure Kim K would approve of, some subtle beauty bits for 'no makeup-makeup' days and the palette that's pushed me out of my comfort zone... 


-Charlotte Tilbury Instant Look in a Palette, limited edition: I feel like a bit of a troll showing you this product when it's no longer available. That Tilbury's such a tease. I've seen rumours floating around that it will be back and in additional colour-ways so all hope is not lost, yet. This was purchased when I got my final paycheck from my social media gig. Charlotte's makeup truly is a treat/special occasion purchase so I was quite gleeful when it did arrive. Inside you have everything you need to complete your makeup in five minutes or less. There's three eyeshadows, two blush shades and condensed versions of her Filmstar Bronze and Glow duo. It is rather beautiful and I love the eyeshadows and bronzer in particular. 

-Yves Saint Laurent Touche Éclat Slogan Edition* in 02, out now: Where has this gold-encased loveliness been all my life!? This brightener diminishes the appearance of dark circles like nothing else. It blends in so seamlessly and it works so, so well. You can also use it to brighten the high points of the face, Kim K style but I just use it under my eyes. If you have this, let me know how you use it. Truthfully I've not ever used a product like this before so if you know of other ways I can utilise it I'd love to know.


-MAC Pastel Times Nine* Palette: How cute are Mac's nine shadow palettes? They're perfect for travel as well. I wasn't expecting to get as much use out of this as I have because honestly these colours aren't the ones I'd typically reach for but they're surprisingly wearable. I get the most wear out of the purple row of eyeshadows but I love this palette. It's going to be perfect come Springtime. 

-L'Oreal Exclusive Pinks Lipstick in Naomi*: L'Oreal are bringing out a new collection of lipsticks in line with some of their ambassadors. They did reds last year and now it's time for the pinks to have their turn. Let me know if you'd like to see a post on these ones because I think I have most of them. Naomi Watts' shade is my favourite though. It's the perfect, your lips but better and slightly pinkier shade. I love the subtle rose scent as well, it reminds me of turkish delight chocolate.

-Rimmel Volume Colourist* Mascara, out now: There's a lot of budget-friendly mascaras out there but Rimmel's are easily some of my favourites. This one is designed to tint your lashes, which I'm not entirely convinced of but as a mascara it delivers. I wouldn't say this is the absolute best mascara I have tried but it's definitely one of my favourites from Rimmel.

-Have you tried any of these products before? What did you think of them?
