Stilla In The Light, Too Faced Natrual Eye & Urban Decay Ammo 2 eyeshadow palettes review!

I decided to do a review on the 3 new eye shadow palettes that I purchased in my last haul. I am in LOVE with these palettes they are amazing! I have done swatch pictures which I will also post.

Stilla In The Light palette

This palette is amazing for the price! Its so affordable and you get 10 beautiful eye shadows and a retractable waterproof eye pencil. I had my eye on this palette for a while now and I wanted a palette with colour rather than neutrals but I couldn't resist, this palette is the bomb. The packaging is super cute.

The colours are so pigmented like literally with one swipe you get an opaque colour. The eyeliner pencil that comes with it is a dark brown shade, which is perfect for me as I dislike black eyeliners on myself. Its a full size pencil and the pigmentation is crazy.


Top Row L-R: Bare, Kitten, Bliss, Sunset and Sandstone
Bottom Row L-R: Bubbly, Gilded Gold, Lustre, Night Sky, Ebony

Swatches: (I used no primer under the swatches)

L-R Bare, Kitten, Bliss, Sunset, Sandstone, Bubbly, Gilded Gold, Lustre, Night Sky, Ebony and a swatch of the eyeliner is at the top.


Too Faced Natural Eye palette

The natural eye palette is such a beautiful palette, its a must have if you love neutral eye shadows. I was originally put off this palette because of the packaging because after looking at pictures of it online it seemed too big and contained a useless brush with a pull out drawer. This put me off it straight away I prefer slim sleek packaging. Anyway after seeing it in store its nothing like that! I must have been looking at the ones from America (god knows) as the one I got is small, cute with no pull out drawer and doesn't even come with a brush (trust me that's a good thing)

 It comes with a sample of the too faced shadow insurance primer.

The shadows are so pigmented and such pretty colours, you could use this palette both in the day and evening. The only colour that is awful is the Nude Beach, it has no pigmentation its just chunks of glitter and no matter how many times I swiped there was just no colour which is a shame because it looks gorgeous in the pan!


L-R Heaven, Velvet Revolver, Sexpresso, Silk Teddy, Push Up, Erotica, Nude Beach, Honey Pot and Cocoa Puff
 I used no primer under the eye shadows

 It also comes with 3 how to recreate cards

Urban Decay Ammo 2 palette

Saved the best for last! This is my favourite palette out of the 3. It is amazing it contains the most gorgeous colours ah its so pretty


It comes with a mini primer potion (the best eye primer ever) and a shadow brush. The packaging is the best, the skull on the front the purple colour everything is just perfect! The colour pay off is amazing, in my opinion Urban Decay have best eye shadow palettes ever, they never disappoint.

Swatches: (No primer was used under the eye shadows)

 L-R Smog, Mildrew, Oil Slick, Last Call, Chopper, Maui Wowie (love this name) Shatterd, Polyester Bride, Grifter and Sin

Which palette do you prefer? Let me know!



Makeup/Beauty Haul!

This weekend I did what I do best and that is make up shopping! I actually only wanted an eye shadow palette but of course like you do, I picked up a few other things!

Here is a picture of what I bought overall:

I will list everything I purchased with pictures below :)

Urban Decay Ammo 2, Too Faced Natural Eye & Stilla In The Light
I did buy 3 eye shadow palettes, the palettes I bought are the Stilla in the light palette, Too Faced natural eye and the Urban Decay Ammo 2 palette. I love all 3 of the palettes they all contain unique colours and are so pigmented!  I have done a full review on these palettes if you interested click this link here:



Benefit Porefessional Primer
The other item I'm super excited about using is the Benefit porefessional primer! I know this is favourite among the beauty gurus on YouTube so I cant wait to try it. Its a face primer that supposedly minimizes the appearance of pores. I'm really in need of a good primer and as this is the number 1 selling primer, it had to be this!!

Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation
I've been searching for the perfect foundation for ever now and I cant seem to find 'the one' (both in foundations and men.........) Anyway I decided to purchase the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation after reading many positive reviews online. I'm really hoping this works out for me because its pretty expensive (I wont be using this for an everyday foundation)

The foundation also comes with pump! 

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer
I didn't even need a new concealer so I'm not sure why I bought this?! Anyway I have already tried this and its a good concealer, in my honest opinion I do prefer the mac prolong wear but never the less this is a nice product it doesn't look cakey or crease on the skin. I got the shade custard as its yellow toned and I love yellow toned concealers to highlight my face.

Mac Products
Now on to my favourite brand M.A.C :)

I bought the blush Gingerly (bronze shade) this blush is a sheer tone blush but its really pigmented and comes of quite peachy toned on me. It contains no shimmer.

I also got a paint pot (I love these!) in Painterly (a nude shade) I got this to use under my eye shadows to act as a primer.

I wanted a change from my usual eye brow routine so I bought a eyebrow pencil in the shade Spiked.
I currently use the eye shadows in Espresso & Charcoal Brown with a 266 brush and although it works fine for me I wanted something different so thought I would try out a brow pencil instead.

I got a prep and prime highlighter in Light Boost (a yellow shade) I actually already have this but I love it so much I bought a back up (I could lose it you never know don't judge me!) and I also got the infamous 217 Blending Brush I mean everyone needs this brush right?!


Maybelline Baby Lips in Pink Punch, Peach Kiss & Hydrate (non tinted) These are so lovely and soft!

Maybelline 24 Hour colour tattoo in On and Off Bronze I love this! its a cream eye shadow base, they are just as good as the mac paint pots.


 How gorgeous?!?!

Real Techniques Brushes

And finally the last two purchases are the Real Techniques setting brush & shading brush
I love these brushes I have a ton, I decided to the shading brush as I need more eye shadow application brushes and the setting brush is a back up as I already have one but I keep it in my handbag and I always misplace it! this is probably my favourite brush out of the whole collection (I lied, my other favourite is the bluffing brush)


 Mac eye brow pencil in Spiked
 Nars radiant creamy concealer in Custard
 Maybelline 24hr colour tattoo in On & Off Bronze (L- 2 swipes R-1 Swipe)
 Mac Paint pot in Painterly
Mac blush in Gingerly

I realise this was a long ass post so I apologise!
