Juvias Place Zulu Palette Review and Swatches

Hello Beauties,

I recently got this beautiful Juvia's Place Zulu Eyeshadow Palette the eyeshadows are gorgeous especially the green ones.

The packaging is gorgeous I love the whole 3-D effect on the box and the front of the palette.

I had wanted to try Juvia's Place eyeshadows for so long when I saw that beauty bay was doing a sale for 4th of July so I decided to buy this palette and do a review for the blog.

Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions Palette Review

Hello Beauties,

Today I would like to talk about the stunning gorgeous Huda Beauty Electric Obsessions Palette.

I have been wearing bright eyeshadows lately and saw this and had to have it in my collection I don’t have any eyeshadows as bright in my collection and I just think this palette is so beautiful and worth every penny the eyeshadows are so pigmented and blend lovely .

They stock these little palettes on cult beauty but this particular palette had sold out and as far as I am aware cult beauty have not had a re-stock yet so I had to get mine from Selfridges the delivery was a little expensive on top of the palette . I would have thought that Selfridges would give free delivery if you spend a certain amount .

I will give credit where credit is due though they did gift wrap it really well ....

Just look how vibrant the eye shadows are in this little mini palette I love the shimmers in particular you get 3 highly pigmented metallic shimmer eyeshadows . One on each row a vibrant purple on the top row , then on the middle row you have a gorgeous bold blue and then my favourite of the three metallic its the gorgeous turquoise reminds me of the ocean and looks lovely on blue eyes .

I am sure I have some photos that I took wearing the eyeshadows in this palette I will try and add a couple to this post.

Then you have 6 mattes which are nice but I would have preferred one more metallic eyeshadow maybe another vibrant metallic green as I am loving wearing green eyeshadow at the moment ....

I just think there are too many eyeshadows from the red family in this palette and Huda Beauty could have quite easily put another metallic in .

The middle red and the bottom row red are so similar on the eyes I don't think you need need both of these shadows in the palette .

Other then that I love the matte eyeshadows my favourite from the mattes definitely are the vibrant yellow and orange it makes a really good sunset eye look which I love . I also like the green although it looks black in the palette on the far left ... I love the vibrant pink on the top row and then you have the 2 matte reds on the middle and bottom row which are nice but I have so many shadows in different palettes having said that I will use them I just would have liked one more metallic.

This is a photo I took after using the vibrant metallic turquoise eye shadow from the palette it's so beautiful isn't it ....

Too Faced Chocolate Gold Eyeshadow Palette - Is it worth the hype

Hello Beauties,

Hope you are well,
So here I am writing this post from my local Mcdonald's the things you have to do :)

Today I thought I would give my thoughts on this amazing palette by Too Faced it's the Chocolate Gold Bar .

I wanted this for ages before I bought it but the price point of too faced puts me off if I am being honest these palettes are so expensive and Make Up revolution normally come out with a dupe for every palette that too faced have done but on this occasion I could not see one .
If you know of a dupe by make up revolution or any other make up brand please let me know I would love to do a comparison review

Pixi Brow Tamer and Lower Lash Mascara

Hello my beauties,

Today I'd like to talk about this little set that I recently got from tk maxx...
In the set you get a Brow Tamer which is a clear gel to set your eyebrows I'm really impressed with this and would definitely buy the set again but my favourite thing In this set has to be the lower Lash mascara...

For the last few years I've been looking for a really good lower Lash mascara which I've not found so I just havent worn mascara on my bottom lashes until now the mascara wand coats every little tiny lash of my lower lashes the brush is amazing .

If your like me and hardly have any lower lashes this is perfect for you I would definitely recommend it ...

If you do want to buy it I would recommend you try your local tk maxx I bought this for £5.99 original retail price is £16.00

I don't know if I would pay £16.00 as both items are tiny almost travel size but they are definitely worth £5.99

Does anyone know anymore great lower lash mascaras I would love to try more out... Please leave a comment with any recommendations that you have

As always thank you so much for reading

My fake tan hell

Hello lovelies,

I thought I would write a quick post all about my fake tan hell...

Last weekend I went for a spray tan and normally it's all ok but my beautician is off on maternity leave until June and there was a young girl filling in for her which I thought would be ok and I was going out and wearing a dress so I wanted a little bit of colour...

I'm not really want to complain but this was a bad spray tan so when my beautician comes back off maternity I will be putting in a complaint.

The tan that was used was fake bake which is always the one that is used on me and it wasn't a cheap tan it cost me £15 and it was all patchy you can see it more on the neck it looks like I have a birthmark which I don't. I had to blend it in with my foundation not good at all...

I made the decision from now on I'm going to try and do my own spray tan I'm currently using the St moritz holiday glow set so watch out for that in an upcoming post.. Hopefully it will be a good fake tan

As you can see from the bottom picture I did end up with quite a nice tan but my legs were patchy, my neck was and you just don't expect that from a spray tan. 

Thanks for reading

Does it really work flawless finish

Hello my lovelies,

I've just looked at the last post that I made which was 6th April and I can't actually believe it's been so long as I've said in recent posts my mum has been very sick for quite awhile now so all my focus has been on her and making sure she is OK but today I'm back with a different post for me.

As you may or may not know if you read the blog posts regularly I suffer with polycystic ovary syndrome and have done since I was in my late teens and as a result of that I do get quite a bit of facial hair not many people notice it but I know it's there and do get a bit paranoid about it anywho when I saw this fancy machine had come out on the market I was very excited to try it because I spend a absolute fortune on going to the beauticians to get the hair waxed off...

What I wanted to know was, was this just a gimmick or Does it really work??... Your probably wondering the same thing right??

First thing I did was go to you tube and watched a couple of videos on the jml flawless finish I didn't want to pay for it and it not work and yes it's only £20 but that would have paid for my appointment.

I was amazed by what I saw so I went to
my local boots and picked one up straight away.... When I got home I tried it out and it removed every last hair that I tried it on that's upper lip hair, chin hair and I have hair at the side of my face that I normally get my beautician to wax off.

I nearly cried with relief when the flawless finish worked I feel like I've been waiting for this machine since I started getting the facial hair.

If you have polycystic ovary syndrome and you get facial hair I would definitely say get this it will change your life... No more painful waxing as it really is pain free.

My sister doesn't have polycystic ovary syndrome she just gets the odd dark hair on her upper lip or around the chin area and she had me sort that out for her today she wants to get the flawless finish soon as she has seen how handy they really are.

The flawless finish is really handy to travel with too as it's so compact and even has a light on it so you can see where the hair is on your face i just think it's fantastic and great value at just £19.99 I'll save so much money by using this instead of going to see my beautician.

Thanks for reading

Review on ID Colour Bon Bon Eyeshadow Palette

Hello Lovelies,

Today I want to do a quick review on this id colour bon bon palette.
Lets just address the elephant In the room this is a clear dupe for the too faced palettes from the fact that it comes in a tin to the shadow lay out.

I really like the matte shadows you get a really nice cream base eyeshadow which is great for setting your make up base some 

ally nice transition eyeshadows and darker mattes such a vibrant pink and plum coloured eyeshadows.

The matte eyeshadows blend out really well unfortunately you don't get that many matte eyeshadows in this palette. 3 matte eyeshadows all the rest are shimmer eyeshadow.

The shimmer eyeshadows are beautiful in this palette ID Colours did a great job with picking the colour selection of the shadows unfortunately with the lighter shimmer eyeshadow there is just no pigment whatsoever and I'm a girl that just loves my shimmer eyeshadow to be super pigmented. I even tried spraying my make up brush with setting spray and dipping my brush in all the shimmer eyeshadows to get more pigment there was a tiny bit more pigment not much. The darker shimmer eyeshadows were really patchy and there was a lot of fall out with these shadows which I can work out what I don't want to work with is the fact that the lighter eyeshadows have no pigment and the darker eyeshadows were really patchy.

This is one palette I won't be recommending the only reason I would keep this palette would be for 2-3 of the matte eyeshadow that I did like the base, the transition eyeshadow and that's not a reason to keep it so I said my sister could have it as she doesn't have much of a make up collection.

If you have tried this palette before what are your thoughts?

I had never heard of the brand ID Colour before let me know in the comments section down below if you have and what you think and if there are any other things that i should try from the brand.

I got this palette from tkmaxx out of some birthday money I think it was £7.99 I just am not loving this palette I weighed it up against the quality of my make up revolution palettes and this ID. Colour palette didn't even compare against palettes from make up revolution at the same price and even some of the cheaper newer palettes that I have been trying from make up revolution such as the reloaded divided palette which I will be talking about very soon.

If you would like to see the make up looks I used with this palette please check out my instagram I would love for you to follow me there beautywithandrea_

As always thanks for reading
