Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette Swatches and Review

I'm about to share something with you all that might make you think I am crazy: I HATE peanut butter. Yep, that's right, I hate the one thing most people love. Believe it.
So as you can imagine, when the Too Faced Peanut Butter and Jelly Palette showed up, inspired by the lunches of many and claiming to have a 'peanut buttery twist' I was kind of horrified...that is until I actually took a sniff of it and was pleased to find out it didn't smell of peanut butter, but rather of vanilla and chocolate. Phew! In fact, I am even more delighted to say that I really love this palette, so who woulda thought?

Sunday Steal | Essence Liquid Lipsticks

Essence Liquid Lipstick Review and Swatch
I've got such a nice little Sunday Steal for you all this week, because the Essence Liquid Lipsticks* are little gems that can be picked up for about $3.50 at your local drugstore or Ulta! I was lucky enough to be sent these, and my first impression was that the 6 shade range was all incredibly wearable colour-wise. When you hear the term 'liquid lipstick' you expect great pigment and coverage like you would get out of a traditional lipstick bullet, so naturally I was eager to put them to the test to see if they performed they was they claimed!

Illamasqua Hydra Matte Radiance Veil Swatch and Review

If you've been reading GLG since the earlier days, you might remember one of my first ever raves was about Illamasqua's Hydra Veil - which is one of my all time ultimate holy grail products. A hybrid of skincare and primer, the brand has now expanded the 'Veil' range with a Matte and Radiance option, so I decided to put all three to the test...

Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette Review and Swatches
You may remember my rave over the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Eyeshadow Palette last year (read the review here) and now the brand has expanded to further the collaboration with a blush palette in very similar deco-esque packaging. The limited edition Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Blush Palette  was designed with the songstress to fill the void of shades she always wanted in her personal makeup collection. With four blushes, one highlighter and one bronzer, it's geared to be the "perfect blush palette". So, does it hold up to the much deserved hype of the eyeshadow palette?

MAC Viva Glam Ariana Grande Swatch and Review

If you're new to MAC Cosmetics as a brand, or have heard the term "Viva Glam" thrown out there before but didn't really get the meaning, it's a range of lip products that the brand donates 100% of the revenue from to the MAC AIDS Fund. The brand has been a pioneer in HIV/AIDS funding since the Viva Glam range was created in 1994 with the legendary RuPaul as the face, and has gone on to collaborate with some incredible stars such as Elton John, Rihanna, Boy George, Debbie Harry, Mary J Blige, Dita Von Teese, Lady Gaga and now, Ariana Grande - which I have a review and swatches of for you today!
