This Just In : Kat Von D Shade + Light Eye Quad in Rust

Kat Von D Shade+Light Eye Quad in Rust Review and Swatches

When the Kat Von D cosmetic range launched a few years back, I really wasn't sure it would grow up to have the impact it's having in the beauty world. A few revamps later, and it's becoming a legitimate colour line that spans neutral to bold colour choices seamlessly whilst offering some seriously superior textures. With the original Shade+Light Contour Palette, and Shade+Light Eyeshadow Palette being massive commercial hits, I had no doubt that when I heard the brand was launching Shade+Light Eye Quads, they would smash it. I managed to get my hands on Rust, the warmest of the our that were launched, so keep on reading for swatches and my review!

Urban Decay's Alice Through the Looking Glass Palette

Urban Decay's Alice Through The Looking Glass Movie Palette

As little girl, I fell in love with Wonderland. Everything from the White Rabbit, to the Mad Hatter, to the Chesire Cat and hookah smoking Caterpillar had me captivated. Alice, with her curiosity and sense of adventure lured me right in and Lewis Carroll's stories of Alice and the quirky characters she crossed will always be some of my very favourite. 
So naturally, when I saw that one of my all time favourite brands, Urban Decay were collaborating with Disney's 'Alice Through the Looking Glass' film on a collection, I was a little beside myself. I don't think I've ever torn into a package so quickly as I did this one, and have been so eager to collect some thoughts and swatches for you!

When They Can't All Be Winners : Products That Just Didn't Work For Me

Product Letdowns from tarte, Colourpop, Too Faced, Vita Liberata and Blinc

As a beauty blogger and all round makeup hoarder (the first step is admitting a problem...) it's in my nature to want to try all the latest and greatest, hyped up products out there. There are times where I've bought things because others loved them, only to be left disappointed, and other times products have been panned in reviews and I adore them! That's just life, and let's face it - they can' all be winners can they? Today's post is spotlighting five products that just didn't work for me.
