top 5 palettes

Another top 5 post, today I am summing up my top favourite palettes, 4 eyeshadow and 1 face from a variety of price points. So lets get started . . .

Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette

First up is my favourite eyeshadow palette of all time the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette, I did an extensive review back in October as to if it was worth the price. If you want to read more, see swatches and all the pros and cons you can read my review here, but to cut a long story short I love it!

no 7 mini eye palette

I never normally look at number 7 but the other Christmas my sister brought me the No 7 Mini Eye Palette, which is sort of a best of palette. It has a good range of shades to help you create a wide range of looks from light and neutral to dark and smoky. Great for travel due to its huge mirror and variety or every day.

mua heaven and earth palette

You can definitely tell which eyeshadows are well loved within the MUA Heaven and Earth Eyeshadow Palette. At only £4.00 if offers amazing value with a wide variety of tones and shades which can all easily mix and match everything within the palette to create the perfect look. I definitely want to play a little more with the darker shades and have a little play.

MUA pretty edgy palette

One of the first products I reviewed on my blog (which you can read here cringe) was the MUA Luxe Pretty Edgy Eyeshadow Palette, a beautiful mix of shimmery satins and mattes which all have a beautiful colour bay of and blend into each other so easily. I get compliments on it every time I wear this and I adore the pinky purple tones with my blue eyes.

sleek face form palette

The final palette on this list is a face palette, and one I have reviewed and mentioned a few times one of the reviews you can ready here Sleek Face Form Palette. It’s the perfect do it all palette for contouring and the blush is absolutely beautiful. Its travel/makeup bag friendly and really does it all. You can read my review of it here.

So those are my top 5 palettes, let me know yours in the comments as well as any recommendations for palettes.

Top 5 Lip Products Under £5.00

Top 5 lip products

I thought I would start to do a bunch of top 5s, sharing the top 5 makeup products within a certain category although the schedule and frequency of the posts yet. Here we look at my favourite lip products that are all under £5, as who doesn’t like to look good on a budget. I feel like all of these have been mentioned before, but here is me declaring my love for them

P.s. Love Matte Long Lasting Lipstick in Whisper

First up is one that initially I had a love hate relationship with loving the colour but often finding it drying. That is the P.S. Love Matte Long Last Lipstick in Whisper, which you can see my full review here it is a muted purple pink and is a great neutral colour with a little bit of a oomph. It works well with a range of makeup looks and as long as you moisturise before and after you will be fine. Available from Primark for £1.00.

mua lipstick in14 bare

Staying in line with neutral we now have the ultimate everyday nude, the Makeup Academy Lipstick in 14 Bare. Rich, creamy and opaque this lipstick is a dream to apply and wear, with only minor touch ups every couple of hours if you wish but due to the nature of the colour and the fact it fades evenly meaning you don’t have to touch up. I also love MUA lipsticks as they have a great formula and a really affordable price point they are great for trying new things out. Available from Superdrug and online for £1.00.

Rimmel London Exaggerate Lip Liner in East End Snob

I’m going to brief with the third one in the list, the Rimmel London Exaggerate Lip Liner in 63 East End Snob. I know there’s been a lot of hype and love for this item, and it’s often sold out in stores but it’s such a perfect muted pink colour. It goes with a lot of other lip colours but looks amazing on its own and as a lip liner it lasts all day, you can find my full review for it here. Available from Boots and Superdrug etc. for £3.99.

Rimmel London Lipstick in 08

This next Rimmel one is a total cheat as I am so in love with it I’ve slipped it in as it’s over budget. The Rimmel London Kate Moss Long Lasting Lipstick in 08, is a creamy pink colour which I really struggle to explain. It is my go to colour, no matter what makeup stand I’m at I pick up this kind of shade but this is by far my favourite lipstick I own of this shade type as it’s so smooth and comfortable on the lips. Available from Boots and Superdrug etc. for £5.49.

I am finishing off with The Body Shop Mango Lip Butter, the best tip balm/treatment I have ever used and it is so affordable. I use this twice a day and it keeps dry and cracked lips at bay, also it smells amazing, so if you have dry lips look no further than the body shop. Available from The Body Shop for £4.00.

So those are my top 5 lip products for near enough £5.00, all amazing products which are really affordable. And if you need any more excuses to be enabled and to go shopping, buying and trying everything on this list would cost you £15.48! You’re welcome.
