Collective Haul : April - Enrapture, DR Jart+, New Look, Sleek + More

Hullo Ladies!

I've picked up a few lovely things in the last few weeks :-) 

Having a look on Amazon I noticed they had on offer on some of the Enrapture styling tools, I picked up the Totem Styler and I'm in love with it, I'm also in love with the price I paid for it! 

At that time it was around £21 :-) The cheapest I've seen it before that was £40 in boots around Christmas time so that's a great Bargain! 

I also stopped in TK Maxx and found some Nip+Fab goodies :-)

 I bought this CC eye fix which I've enjoyed using.

I paid £2.99 for it.

I also picked up this Pigmentation Fix which is apparently a Best Seller, I can't wait to see if it makes a difference. 

I paid £5.99 for it.

I then found this in ASDA for £5 which I thought was a great price. I have to say though, even thought it's the lightest shade they had it looks orange on me :-( hate it when that happens. I'll ever try and match it with a lighter product or give it to someone who it would  work well with. 

While in Boots I noticed they had an offer on DR.Jart which I'd heard a lot about so I picked up this Beauty Balm which I'm really liking :-) 

Also in Boot's I picked up another bottle of the Match Perfection from Rimmel which I really love using :-) 

Boot's also had an offer on Soap and Glory Skin Care, I looked to see if they had my favourite Peaches and Clean Cleanser which Is one of my favourites but they hadn't so I picked up another one which Is always talked about - The UltiMelt Hot Cloth Cleanser. I've only tried it a few times but I really like it so far.

 I still want to pick up another Peaches and Clean though as I find it great for daily use. 

I stopped in New Look and thought this top looked super cute! 

I really want a Pug one day :-)

I went out on a night out last weekend so the day before I picked up some new Eylure lashes. 

I bought them in Superdrug as they were on offer but they're huge so I ended up using something slightly more subtle pair. These would be great for something a bit more glamorous.  

So I still have my Sleek obsession and I managed to buy a few more palettes this month :-) 

The I-Candy Limited Edition palette and the Bad Girl Palette. 

I've heard many things about both and couldn't wait to have them in my hands!

Last but not least I picked up a few more essentials which I needed.

I few weeks ago I bought a Tresemme Shampoo and Conditioner and my scalp really didn't like it so I decided to pick up a new Herbal Essences Shampoo and Conditioner for coloured hair. 

I also picked up some new cotton pads as I like to use them to help take off my makeup.

Last but  not least I bought a new red hair dye. Red is so hard to maintain but I can't get enough :-)

REVIEW - Sleek - I Divine Palette - Storm

Hullo Ladies, 

So as you may know I'm obsessed with Sleek and I thought I'd write up a review for the Storm Palette I bought a few weeks ago :-) 

Probably one of the most talked about Sleek palette's in the beauty community, Storm is a gorgeous Neutral eye shadow palette with quite a wide range of shadows. 

Included are 9 shimmer shades and 3 matte shades. 

From Left to Right - Sand Storm, Snow Storm, Calm Before The Storm, Thunder Storm, Perfect Storm, 

Firestorm, Dust Storm, Gathering Storm, Storm Cloud, Electric Storm, Eye Of The Storm and Blackout.

This stunning palette gives you the opportunity to create anything from light neutral everyday eye makeup to dark smokey night out makeup. 

I find the shadows in the Storm palette as pigmented, bendable and long lasting as all the other palette I've tried from them. In other words, Amazing!

I bought this palette from Amazon but you can also buy them from Boot's, Superdrug and the Sleek Makeup Website :-) 

No doubt I'll be buying more palettes soon, which ones are your favourite?

REVIEW - Urban Decay - Naked 3 Palette

Hullo Lovely Ladies!

Here's an exciting review that I've wanted to write since I bought this palette :-) 

Lately I've become obsessed with eye shadow palettes again and the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette is one of them! 

I don't own Naked 2 or Naked Basics but I do own the Original Naked palette (which I love) so I was wondering whether I needed this palette or not but one day after a bad week I went looking for something to treat myself with and noticed Debenhams had a 10% off fragrance and beauty. Including this palette. 

I spent a few hours on blogs and Youtube looking up reviews and everyone seemed to be in love with it and I adored the makeup looks people where creating with it so I decided to give it a go :-) 

The packaging is a lot different from the Original palette which I love because I hated the Original packaging. The letters on my original palette started peeling the day I got it! 

Apparently the packaging is similar to the Naked 2 but has a ripple effect and is a rose gold colour. 

The actual shadows all have a pinkish tone to it. Which I knew instantly I would adore. 

From Left to Right - 

Strange - Off White Matte Shadow 

 Dust - light pink with glitter particles

 Burnout - Pink Shimmer

 Limit - Muted Rose Matte 

 Buzz - Rose Shimmer with Silver Glitter

 Trick - Gold Shimmer with Gold Glitter

 Nooner - Pink Toned Matte Brown

Liar - Mauve Shimmer 

 Factory - Pink Toned Brown Shimmer

Mugshot - Taupe Shimmer 

Darkside - Grey Toned Mauve Shimmer

  Blackheart - Black Matte with Red Sparkles. 

I love every shade and use them all except for the glitter shade which is Dust as I really dislike how much glitter it contains and how it travels across the face. I'm used to have at least one shade from Urban Decay palette that are like that though so I'm not that upset as I know I'll use every other shadow.

Here's a look I created using some of the shadows from the palette....I don't know why I'm pulling that face....sorry! Hehehe!

You receive a free double ended eye shadow brush which is good quality and I use it frequently. 

 You also get a sample kit of four different Primer Potions. Yes, it's nice to try out a range of the line but I was slightly disappointed that they didn't give a mini sized primer potion like they used to do or a mini version of some other product. 

 I definitely suggest picking up this palette, like all the other Urban Decay Palettes I've tried, the shadows are amazingly pigmented and smooth to go on. 

You can buy the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette from Debenhams - Here 

Do you have the Naked 3 palette? What do you think of it?

I'm pretty sure this is my first FOTD post but recently I joined instagram and I've fallen in love with the beauty community on there and it's given me a bit more confidence with my blogging. I hope that If any of you have instagram that you'll either post your username in the comments section or follow me on Linzilou92 :-)

Sleek Storm Palette
Sleek Pink Lemonade Blush By 3 Palette
Bourjois Healthy Mix Foundation
MAC Hug Me Lipstick

Out of the Storm palette I used the dark browns to create a smokey eye and kept the rest of my makeup quite simple.

So that's my first ever FOTD post on my blog :-)
