Anyone else have a slight obsession with buying things that are mini? They’re so cute! :’)
major statement bracelets from Pierre Hardy
I’m mildly obsessed with everything Pierre Hardy at the moment, by the way
I bought this palette for working with eyeliner and that’s how I usually use it - I can set the line, enhance it with color and/or add a soft, smudgy effect.
Both the black and white shades - also sold as the Pandora duo - are satiny. This is not evident from looking at them in the pan, but it’s a nice surprise because it makes them more wearable and less like chalk/charcoal. The bright blue (Outremer), dusty violet (Jolie Poupée) and royal purple (Daphne) are all matte and the lime green (Rated R) has a bit of shimmer. Where to start with these colors.
Even though it’s soooo pretty in the pan, I’ve never figured out how to use Rated R because it gives my skin a sickly yellow tone. Maybe someday? Meanwhile, Daphne is difficult to work with. Will not blend without dissolving, will not build evenly. It works best in tandem with eyeliner, patted down over a very small area. It makes a fantastic smudgy purple lash line, though, so I actually use it all the time.
Jolie Poupée and Outremer are easier to love. The versatile gray-purple is definitely a color and not a neutral, but it wouldn’t be difficult to wear if you’re used to neutrals. Outremer, on the other hand, is not even remotely neutral. It applies completely true-to-pan electric blue.
New Wave is counterintuitively versatile. The black and white are good basic shadows for all your smudgy, smokey eye needs and they pair very well with the bright accent colors.

Few things give me more joy than beautiful (& inexpensive) makeup organization.
Amazing two make-up products in my Glossy box this month- Kryolan for Glossy Box Blusher & Sleek’s ‘Oh So Special’ Eye Shadow Palette…
This month’s ‘Festive’ December Glossy box has arrived! And for those that don’t know about Glossybox , it’s a savvy subscription service. For £10 a month, subscribers receive a beautifully presented gift box containing 5 luxury beauty samples, some of which will be full size. The idea is, you get to try them before you buy them! Subscribe online for £10 per month. Then, every month your GlossyBox will arrive containing carefully selected, indulgent, and on trend beauty products. Delivery is free* and you can cancel your subscription any time. I just had to share two of my favourite items I got in mine this month…
Sleek I.Divine / ‘Oh So Special’ 12 Eyeshadow Palette. Normally £7.99!
I used to buy Sleek Eye shadow palettes when I first started doing make-up artistry and to be honest I stopped buying them after discovering Make-up Academy’s eye shadow palettes which are similar to Sleek’s so when I got this palette in my Glossy Box all I could say was … it’s OH SO SPECIAL! So I wanted to share this item with you all.
I’m loving nudes and naturals in my makeup world lately. So Sleek Makeup Oh So Special Palette brings it to the table and does it well. From what I understand the Sleek Makeup Oh So Special Palette was created for Sephora (not within the US) but was later released as a standard part of the Sleek Makeup Collection. This 12 eyeshadow pallete offers browns, subtle pinks, creams, and beiges. The colours are a nice mix of light to dark so you can go with a soft, subtle eye look or a deeper, sultry one. Six of the shades lean towards the lighter side and six towards the darker. I find Sleek does shadow formulas beautifully even when it comes to matte finishes. The mattes are finely milled, blend easily, and offer great colour pay off but of course, the real joy is the more shimmering/frosty shades which have a buttery smooth velvet feel that blend beautifully on lids with full colours pay off. The colours remain true on lids even without the aid of a solid primer.

Kryolan for GLOSSYBOX | Blusher in Glossy Rosewood. Bonus product!(not to buy)
As you all know I am a BIG fan of Kryolan in my make-up kit I was so happy to know Kryolan have now brought a range out for Glossy Box (which makes me want to keep my Glossy box for that extra bit longer now) Kryolan is a trusted brand in the professional make up sector, so they have developed an exclusive blusher just for GLOSSYBOX! It’s a high pigmented dusky rose shade so a good match for my darker complexions with a soft lightweight feel so you only need a touch of it when applying to the skin.
For those still wanting the December box which I am loving this month it’s never too late to subscribe!
