Urban Decay: Naked Palette

Image
This palette has to be one of my FAVES so thought I'd do a review. It is very sleek looking, great quality and most importantly affordable. I think it is £27 and it comes with 12 eye shadows. Considering MAC eye shadows are around £12 each it is such a good deal.


Although i don't think the quality is quite as good as MAC i find myself using this palette a lot, mostly every day as the colours are great neutrals. I'm not very adventurous when it comes to colour on the eye so this was a must-have for me. I also LOVE the packaging and name of this. The palette has a velvet feel to it, comes with a mirror and is all very cute and compact.


As well as getting 12 eyeshadows, you also get an eyeshadow brush. Personally, I think the brush is NAFF. I tend to stick with MAC brushes as I think they are unbeatable in terms of quality. The palette used to come with a double ended 24-hour eye liner which was much better but hey ho, it is still one of my best beauty buys to date. My fave col…

My photoshoot went amazingly.... I had soooo much FUN! Anna was amazing, made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. we went for the 'Rock Chick' look. Originally we were meant to do classy lingerie shots but we couldn't get hold of any underwear we thought was appropriate in time! Ahh well, theres always a next time!

MAC Holiday Collection: Glitter & Ice

Image
Ahhhhhh so its that time of the year again .... MAC HOLIDAY COLLECTIONS are out and i cannot wait to unwrap some little gems on xmas day!
The collection this year is called 'glitter & ice' and it is BEAUT. The packaging is all white, sparkly and generally pretty.




There is the standard colour collection, gift sets and also 'dazzlespheres' which is 4 lipglosses/pigments or nail polishes that come in a clear sphere. SO COOL. 




I have definitely got one of the lipgloss dazzlespheres and one of the Lip bags which consists of a Lipstick, Lipgloss & Lip Liner. I chose the shade 'Wintercool'. The white lipstick are so gorgeous, makes a nice change from MAC's standard black packaging.




If you want to check this out or anymore of this collection, visit www.maccosmetics.co.uk. 
I am going to do a full review on all the products i get at Christmas. Excited.


Do you have anything from the MAC Holiday Collection that's worth a try?!

Photoshoot

So i have a photoshoot tomorrow and I am TOTALLY EXCITED.

The photographer is Anna Vasylonok and she is Amazing. Check out her pictures online! I need to get my thinking cap on and come up with some cool make-up/fashion looks for the photos.

I am definitely going to post the final pictures on here! Hopefully they'll be nice. 


Anna has done shoots with some beautiful girls so the pressure is ON. She often works with real models so I'm hoping she can work her magic and make me look as fabulouuuus as them!




Chow for Noooww, Kayleigh.

Review: Crest Whitestrips Advanced Seal

Image
I've been using Crest Whitestrips for a few days now and wanted to do a quick review :)
So far i think they are FAB! Totally working. My teeth are gradually getting whiter and i still have ten days to go.
I had braces when i was younger for 2 and a half years so my teeth are pretty straight. Not as straight as i'd like but we can't all afford Vaneers at £700 a tooth, yikkeees!
I ordered the 'Advanced Seal' strips as they stay on your teeth far better than the original ones.


Inside the box you get 14 days worth of strips. In each pack there is one strip for your upper teeth and one strip for your lower teeth. All you do is peel them off and stick them onto your teeth. The bottom strip is slightly too small which is the only bad thing i have to say about these. Most people show their top teeth more though so it's all good :) ...                           


I ordered them from www.crestwhitestrips.co.uk. The website had a deal on at the time so i got 20% off which meant…

My first ever blog post

Image
Sooooo …. here goes. Welcome to my blog, x-CoutureGirl-x. I have been wanting to set up my own beauty blog for AGES now, and have finally taken the plunge. I have a massive passion for all things beauty! As my collection of pretty products develops over time, so does my love for it! I am beyond obsessed with trying out new products and sharing my thoughts with my friends, family and anyone who will listen to me blabbering on really. I have been inspired by various beauty bloggers and you tube beauty gurus who have made a huge success for themselves. I look at their blogs & videos and think “i could do that” so i thought what the heck. Although i have a fairly large amount of make-up, i don’t have a HUGE collection. I want to start this blog based on the products i have been fortunate enough to try already, my favourite products so far, tips and tricks i’ve picked up along the way and the products i can’t wait to get my hands on. Although my blog will be mainly beauty based I am also i…
