SMASHBOX Cover shot "Ablaze" palette Review + swatches

Hey my loves, as i am planning to travel this May, i of course had to go makeup shopping! I was on the hunt for a travel size compact palette, which i happen to find on the Smashbox website. I personally prefer a palette which has warm earth tones, as they are easier to transform from a daytime to evening to party look. Hence why i fell in love with this compact palette. They do have other travel size palettes from the cover shot range, so do have a look, however i shall be reviewing the "Ablaze" palette as i found it best suited me.

Packaging :

What first caught my eye once i received the palette was the 3D casing, bold yet effective! Also the size of the packaging is perfect for travel, fits right in the palm of your hand with a good sized mirror which i appreciate, as it can be a pain having to find a mirror when you need it.


The two larger shadows at the top of the palette are used as bases, this i found very useful as it gave a smooth canvas for the transition shades. The six smaller shadows are super bendable and pigmented which is what i look for in a palette. Moreover the ingredients used are cruelty free as stated on the website which is always a plus! Here are the swatches from the palette and the shade names.
Swatches on my arm are from right to left opposite of the palette.

6 Shades:
"Dark horse" "Throwback" "Torch" "Delirious" "Nirvana" "Siesta"  BASE  "Moccasin" "Relaxed

The palette is not scented 

Uk price online £24

I would highly recommend this palette, just for the fact that there are shades to suit everyone, from neon to natural as well as being compact perfect for on the go. The formula, is super bendable and pigmented which is perfect for photos and for everyday wear. As well as it being reasonable priced, let me know your thoughts on the palette, and which is your favorite xoxo.

Kylie Jenner "Limited addition holiday collection" liquid matte lipsticks minis REVIEW

Hey honey buns, so over the holiday period i was gifted a set of the limited addition Kylie Jenner matte liquid lipsticks. They were great for over the holiday period (and from day to night looks) as well as being travel size perfect for me as i am currently still on vacation. This actuallly was my first set of cosmetics from Kylie's collection, and to my suprise the formular is similar to matte liquid lipsticks i have tried before. Here are my thoughts on the product and swatches.


The style of the liquid lipsticks are the typical Kylie Jenner "melted liquid lipstick " design with the shade peeping through the bottom half with the top half covered in a silver metalic casing. As they were stated to be "limited addition" i did hope for a "limited addition" design, something unique from her collection. However the only difference in design is the size. These liquid lipsticks have 0.02fl.oz per bottle, which is perfect for traveling.


As with previous liquid lipsticks i have tried i can compare Kylie's to the "jeffree star" liquid lipsticks, They are both creamy and highly pigmented, which is perfect as the Kylie Jenner collection was limited addition and a little goes along way. However they do dry fast and become wrinkly after a hour or so. I have always exfoliated and hydrated my lips before applying any liquid lipstick, so when they became dry and chapped looking i was quite disappointed. Having said that they do last long depending on what your eating as i found i did have to reapply after eating certain foods. The liquid lipsticks do not bleed around your lips once applied, which is perfect if you do not like touching up your makeup. Lastly on the formular, they do come off with a baby wipe which is great as you do not need to purchase any additional cosmetics to help remove it.

Smell -

The liquid lipsticks each have a sweet smell. which once on the lips is undetectable.


As this was a gift i am unsure of the price, as the collection is no longer on the website either for reference,


As for the quality of the product, the size and the shades i shall rate this product 8/10

"My makeup brush set" OVAL BRUSHES Review + Tutorial

Hey my loves, so i finally got round to filming another review this time it is on "My makeup brush set" oval brushes. They had kindly send me two sets of there best selling brushes to choose from to do a review on. Considering i actually have never used oval brushes i was eager to see the results! I had chosen the 5 piece rose gold set as well as the 10 piece gold and black set. They arrived a few weeks later from the initial email, as my sets where being shipped from there USA store. As soon as they arrived that morning i had filmed a Cranberry fall makeup look using only there brushes which i shall link down below for you to check out.

Tutorial here -

Get yours at :

PS: All opinions are my honest review on these brushes!

The prices range for both of these sets depending on which website you look (UK or USA) I personally could not find the price of the Rose gold set on the UK website, so i shall use the USA website as reference for the prices of these brushes.

5 piece rose gold set $15.00
10 piece black and gold set $39.99

Pros :

  • Soft bristles ( not harsh on the skin)
  • Easy to handle and use
  • Evens out makeup without becoming patchy or blotchy
  • Sleek presentable style
  • Quality of the brush is satisfactory for the price
  • Does pick a lot of product
  • Denser brushes such as the contour brush makes it hard to blend, without it looking streaky 
  • Some of the brush sizes where too small or too big for areas, such as the  powder brush was too big to set the corners of my eyes or the sides of my nose. Lip brush was quite big and sheered out the product.
  • Plastic handle feels like it could break easily
Overall rating 8/10
Would use again as was happy with how my makeup turned out having used these for the first time!

POUNDLAND makeup better than high end ??

Hey sweeties, i popped into my local Poundland which here in the UK is a store which sells cosmetics, makeup, food and more all for a pound! I knew they had a makeup collection so thought i would put it to the test with surprising results. I picked what I could in order to create a glamorous makeup look. Unfortunately the lashes where out of stock as I did check online and in store twice so used my own. Moreover i used my own brushes as I wanted to focus more on the makeup. I hope you guys enjoy this video as i also enjoyed filming it as I found a few favourites which i can say are better or even equal to some high end makeup i have. Let me know which are your favourite and if you have tried out the brand yourself! Thanks for watching xoxo
