Hi everyone, long time no blog post, sorry for the lack of posts recently, but not that long ago I did something I have wanted to do for ages (and I mean ages), I finally created a Youtube channel !!!!
I have wanted to publish a video for so long, after watching so many people's videos. Then one day I though you know what I'm going to publish my first video, and I did and so far I really enjoy the process of filming different types of videos, then editing, then publishing and finding out what you guys think.
My channel is going to be a lifestyle and beauty videos, and I really hope that you take a look at one of my three videos, I have published so far it would really mean a lot to me and if you could subscribe to my channel, and enjoy watching my videos just as much as I enjoy making them.

I don't know about you but I always seem to get really excited when I see a new contour palette on the market, especially when I see it on the high street because you know the high street brands are giving you another option that you don't have to pay the high end price.
I recently went into the Superdrug near where I live and noticed they were now stocking Makeup Revolution, I went in to the store for ages trying to find the allusive Ultra Contour Palette. One day I went in there and to my surprise it was there and I have loved it ever since.
The palette comes nicely packaged and it doesn't have high street brand vibe to it, if you know what I mean. When you open the palette you are greeted with 8 powders, 3 of the powders are contouring, 3 more for highlighting and 2 others that seem to be baked. The powders are very smooth and are very easy to blend.
My favourite shades are the banana powder, the yellow toned shade helps to brighten and set your under eye highlight. My next favourite shade in is powder next the banana shade on the right, a lovely gorgeous champagne highlight, that isn't too in your face. Of course my last favourite shade is the contouring powder underneath the banana shade, the perfect grey toned contour shade the perfect matte shade to let anyone have amazing cheek bones.
Tweet me your thoughts on this palette, hope you enjoyed this post.

Whilst on Instagram a couple of weeks ago, I found an eyeshadow palette that I just had to get my hands on, it was stunning to look at and it was even better when I found out it came from Ebay !!!
The unexpected palette consists of 15 warm toned eyeshadows, that are all matte for the price you pay I believe that you do get an all right pigment. When you first look at the palette you get three peachy skin toned shades perfect for transition colours in the crease.
You also get your standard black and white, then you also get different tones of brown ranging from dark to light to grey toned. an unexpected shade you do get in the palettes is a very warm toned orange, that look red in the palette but when swatched on your hand is the perfect warm orange, perfect to spice up any eye look. Paired with the perfect eye primer the eyeshadows do have great staying power.
I believe that this is a great palette for the price you pay, as you get 15 great warm toned eyeshadows. The palette is also great for travelling as you get a range of shadows to work with and a nice slim palette. For £2.99 it's a bargain, to get your hands on this palette follow the link down below.

I am very late to the band wagon when it came to the Urban Decay Naked Palette, it just didn't really appeal to me until now. I have already got the Naked 2 and 3, and I started to consider the original and it seemed to be a palette that was every where when I didn't have it. I decided to ask for it for christmas but I didn't think I would get it. But now I have it I can understand the hype.
The packaging is very different to the Naked palettes we see now-a-days, with a velvet and loose magnetic closure. But inside you are greeted with 12 stunning shades, upon gazing at it you can see how the palette goes from day to night looks. My favourite shades in the palette have to be Naked and Buck, the perfect matte light and dark brown shades, perfect multitasking shades either for brow colours, crease colours or all over shadows. My next favourite shade is Toasted, the perfect rosy gold shade, that reminds me that it should be in the Naked 3 palette but maybe Urban Decay were hinting at what was to come. My last favourite shade is Smog, a beautiful mixture of gold and brown tones.
All of the eyeshadows as you would expect from Urban Decay and have great staying power, with or without a primer. As I have had the palette now for 2 months, I can understand why there was SUCH a hyper over it when it first came out, and also how it has started a surge of other companies wanting to create their own Naked palette.
