Wet n Wild Comfort Zone Palette

This is the first Wet n Wild product i have bought with it being so difficult to get this brand in the UK, i eventually found an American site that ships to the UK called Beauty Joint

That i was able to get my hands on it :) i have been drooling over it online for a long time & it definitely did not let me down!

As you can see you get 8 shadows in earthy neutrals, there is bound to be something for everyone. On the back of the palette they've included a little chart to help you create coordinated looks, but of course, you can always mix and match as you like.

Left side 

Brow bone: This is a pretty yellow beige eyeshadow. This is frosty though so I can't say that it's the best as a highlight. This is apparently close to MAC Ricepaper

Eyelid: This is a pretty peachy pink eyeshadow,also excellent and close to MAC Jest.

Crease: This is a darker golden brown and it's close to MAC Soba

Definer: This is a blackened red,This is close to MAC Smut.

Right side

Browbone: This is a Stunning creamy silvery taupe,it is close to Urban Decay's Sin.

Eyelid: This is a spring green,close to MAC Juxt.

Crease: This is a blackened olive colour,can't think of a similar shade?

Definer: This is the standout shade,a brown/blue duo chrome.It's an amazing dupe for MAC Blue Brown pigment!

I'm not sure i would follow the directions of applying the colours on the places it suggests, but i will definitely use all the colours!

Have you got this Palette, Whats your favourite shade?

Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Charm & Previous

The Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains have been in our stores for a while & i have snapped up a few of the other shades review Here.

I was on Ebay a couple of weeks ago browsing products when i came across Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain in Charm & Precious?! Why do we in the UK never get such great products that the USA do? All the shades we got were pink or red, the most natural colour we got was honey but to me that is still too pink on the lips...

Of course i bought them straight away, they took 2 weeks to arrive, i finally got my hands on them this week!!.

I'm in 💜 Love 💜.... The shades are so pretty & natural looking adding just a touch of colour to your lips. meaning you can apply them on the go and be sure that you haven't smudge it over your face!

 Charm is a perfect pale peach with slight shimmer.

Precious is a Pink toned Nude with Shimmer.
I have no idea why these colours were not released in the UK as I'm sure they would of been one of the best sellers?
What is your favourite colour, are you more of a natural lip or colour lip girl?

Sleek Blush By 3 Palettes - My Collection

I was so glad when Sleek decided to release these palettes as they are great for a night away or holiday as you can take just one palette and get 3 different day & night looks.

There are a couple of shades that are quite similar to the single blush shades, but that doesn't really bother me as it means i don't have to take that one separately, I think Lace is my favourite as the shades are so pretty & i love coral blushes.

Here are the 3 palette's, I have Lace, Sugar & Pumpkin.

Lace. - Crochet - Is a matte Orange toned peach, Guipure - Is a Peachy pink with gold shimmer, Chantilly - Is a matte reddish peach shade.


Sugar. - Turbinado - Is a matte red/brown shade, Muscovado - Is a shimmery reddened bronze shade with a touch of plum. Demerara - Is a matte deep red with a browny/terracotta shade.


Pumpkin. - Lantern - is a shimmering coral-orange, Squash - is a bright semi matte pink, P Pie - is a pure matte orange.


Do you own any of the palettes, Which is your favourite?

Sleek Blushes - My Collection.

I only discovered the Brand Sleek about 18 months ago, i thought it was just a cheap, run of the mill brand that would come & go, so i didn't take any interest.
I Thought Sleek were designed for darker skin tones, but i now know that if applied lightly they can look fantastic on any skin types.
But then i heard more & more people talking about their blushers, bronzers & eye palettes that my curiosity got the better of me, i went to Super drug & purchased my first blusher ' Rose Gold' .
I now own several blushes, blush palettes & eye palettes.

Rose Gold - A Beautiful Peach/Coral with Gold shimmer.

Pan-Tao - A Vivid Orange

Sunrise - An amazing Red/brown shade with a bronzy gold shimmer.

Suede - A lovely subtle matte Natural Tan Shade

Honour - A Stunning Bronzed Rose Gold shade.

Pomegranate - A gorgeous Plum/burgundy Pink shade With a sheen

These Blushes are highly pigmented, so a very light hand & minimal powder is needed so the 8 grams of  product should last you are a very long time.

There are 10 permanent blushes available,

But Sleek bring out a couple of limited edition collections throughout the year which usually include a Blush, Eye palette & a lip pout.

Are you a sleek fan? What's your favourite product & why?

7 Deadly Sins of Beauty Tag

I saw this tag & thought it seemed like a good one....


What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?

My most inexpensive item is my MUA Eye shadows, such great pigments & colours for only £1!!. My most expensive item would be my Naked & Naked 2 palette's at £36 it is a lot but for the amount of use i get out of them to me it is worth it.


What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with? What product has been the hardest to get?
Cream blushers, they don't seem to blend in nicely with my skin & Face powders i like to use a powder to set my foundation but hate it when it goes to powdery & looks cakey.


What are your most delicious beauty products?
My Lush Lip scrubs i have them in Bubblegum, Mint & Popcorn.... Mint is my favourite though as i always want to eat it - i have a thing for mint tasting food & Chocolate :)


What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?
Primer, i always forget to put it on......And really really bad.....I sometimes forget to take my Make up off before i go to sleep!

What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?
Without a doubt Foundation, it even out my skin & hides a multiple of imperfections - & a bit of bronzer & Mascara... Ha i know only one ;)

What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?
Eyes are super sexy.. That's what attracted me to my Husband.... I love Green eyes but My Hubbie has really dark brown almost black eyes with mega long thick eyelashes - that make me sooo jealous!!

What items would you most like to receive as a gift? 
I would absolutely love the Nars Danmari Blush Palette, i wanted it even more when it became sold out! But that's me i always want what i can't have :(

What are your 7 Deadly sins of Beauty?

What's in my Everyday Make up Bag.

Here are the products i use everyday, Products i know work for me & last throughout my day.

Foundation - Bourjois Healthy Mix in 52 Vanilla.
This is a great buildable foundation that gives great coverage & a lovely finish, i always find myself going for this time & time again.I'm never without a bottle in my collection.

Concealer - Rimmel Match Perfect in Ivory.
I love this concealer it turns me from dead to alive in 20 seconds, such a great brightening colour for under the eyes.

Powder - Rimmel Stay Matte in 001 Transparent.
This is a great powder to keep my t-zone at bay, a light dusting of this will keep me shine free for a good 8hrs.

Bronzer - NYC smoothing powder in Sunny.
A lovely matte bronzer in a wearable shade, its light & can be built up, i use it for contour & to add colour.

Blusher - Accessorize Baked powder in Pretty Pink.
This can change depending on my mood,but my current favourite for the last few weeks has been this a lovely brightening pink sheen.

Eye Shadow - Urban Decay Naked Palette 2.
Depending on how much time i have in the morning depends on eye shadow, i usually skip this step if I'm in a rush, but if i do have time i always seem to grab this.

Eye Liner - Rimmel Scandleyes in Nude.
Another great eye product that brightens your eyes and makes you look like you slept a good 8hrs.

Mascara - L'Oreal Volume Lashes in Black.
A fab mascara for volume & length, no need for falsies when i apply a little of this.

Eyebrows - Benefit Speed Brow.
A coloured gel that sets & colours my brows enough to go out of the house.

Lips - Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain - Honey or Darling.
Again a great product for applying in a hurry & it lasting until lunch, easy to slip into your purse & go.

I hope these have given a couple of ideas?

Jolie Box October 2012 ** Spoiler**

Again i have been surprised by Jolie Box & a knock at my front door, as i wasn't expecting my box until next week!


This month's box is called Pure & Natural a beauty survival kit for Autumn.

Fleur De Force is on the front cover & does a little Q & A Inside.

Above is the October Menu 2012

A Sneak peek inside the box

Balancing face moisturiser - The Luxurious natural moisturiser is perfect to protect your skin against harsh environmental factors.

Lov is beautiful - An organic blend of white and green tea that's packed with antioxidants and zinc that have proven skincare benefits.

Bee Healthier lip balm stick - A naturally nourishing hand -bag ready lip balm to help maintain a plump and perfect pout.

The Green Balm - An Intense multi-purpose balm that gives moisture to chapped,dehydrated skin - suitable for sensitive skin.

RITESSENS. *fullsize*
Cleanser or Exfoliant -Ritessens uses a powerful blend of natural plant extracts and Moroccan argan oil. Their products work wonders.

Their are 2 full sized products, & a good sized sample from 3 brands I've not come across before & a couple of old favourites i have had & loved in the past - Great sizes for travelling.

This month is a good month, i think as i will use everything in my box, i can see a few people not being to happy with the Balance Me as these seem to have been doing the rounds in all Beauty boxes recently, but i love things like that for Travel. The other item that could be moaned about is the MOA as again it has appeared in another beauty box but not everybody got to try it.

I am really looking forward to trying the Ritessens Exfoliator, as I'm really getting into Argan oil products. The Tea smells gorgeous so will have to try that out and see, I'm not usually a herbal tea kind of girl - I'm more a milk & 2 sugars!

Hope you enjoy, What do you think?
