Naked3 Palette Review

When I first heard there was another Naked Palette on the way I was a little sceptical, I don't own Naked or Naked2 as I just don't tend to lean towards eye shadows with a bronze or taupe hue to them and  at £37 each here in the UK, that is an awful lot of money to spend on a palette which despite the hype I might never use. But after looking into Naked3 a little more I started to get very excited. This time Urban Decay had decided to make a palette with rose-hued neutrals. My pale complexion has been begging for this for a long time. So I decided to join the Naked revolution and asked for Naked3 for Christmas. 
I finally got my hands on this a few days ago and I have to say I am not disappointed. It comes in such beautiful metallic rose gold case which feels wonderful to just hold. 
Inside are 12 stunning rose hued colours, from left to right there is:
Strange- A pale neutral matt-satin
Dust- A pale pink metallic shimmer with a glittery finish
Burnout- A peachy pink satin with an almost pearlescent finish 
Limit- A dusty rose matt with a very smooth feel
Buzz- (My personal favourite) A warm metallic rose shimmer with a glittery
Trick- A copper pink metallic shimmer with a glittery finish

Nooner- A pinky brown medium matt with warm undertones
Liar- A warm mauvey brown metallic shimmer 
Factory- A pinky brown satin with warm almost reddish undertones 
Mugshot- A pinky taupe metallic shimmer
Darkside- A deep taupe satin with almost purple undertones and a pearlescent finish 
Blackheart- A smoky black with red microsparkles and warm burgundy undertones
All of the shadows in this palette are beautifully blendable and feel light and creamy when applied. They all have a lovely colour payoff the finishes are gorgeous. The Palette comes with a brush which is lovely quality and samples of 4 primer potions which hold about a weeks worth of primer each.
All in all I would definitely recommend the Naked3 Palette to anyone who likes rose toned shadows and it is a must have for any beauty enthusiasts out there like me. 
As always have a wonderful day and thanks for reading.

Boxing Day Sales Clothing Haul

Happy New Year to all my lovely readers. I hope the coming year brings everything you could wish for and more. 
I was a busy bee around Christmas time but of course still managed to find a little time to hit the sales! So I thought I would show you the few clothing items that I picked up.



The first thing I found was this top from TK Maxx by the brand Zenana Outfitters, it is a very soft plain black t-shirt but the whole back of it is made of lace. A bargain at £5 and I think this will look lovely in the summer time, it's still a little chilly out there at the moment here in Scotland.

The next thing I picked up was this skater skirt from Forever 21. It is a lovely thick and soft material perfect for the winter months still ahead. This was £10.

I got this at a shop called Pulp, It is by the brand David and Goliath. They do lots of funny t-shirts and hoodies. This along with the next dress were on a 2 for £30 deal.

This was also from Pulp but this time from the brand Cupcake Cult. The galaxy pattern grabbed my attention.

This was a much needed basic from Primark and at £5 for a good quality t-shirt material dress you can't really go wrong. Pair this with a pretty waist belt some tights and boots and I'm good to go.

I also picked these little beauties up in the Disney store for less than £4 each! Bargain, I do love some funky mugs!
Feel free to share what you got in the sales as I love seeing what others are buying and as always thanks for reading.

UK Glossybox September 2012

After a huge battle with Glossybox in which I had to phone them a countless number of times to find out where my September Glossybox was I finally received it after they posted me out another by Royal mail. So I'm sorry I'm a little late on this box but I really have only just received it a few days ago.
This was my first Glossybox and the box itself was really very pretty.

The box was designed by illustrator Maggie Li this month for London fashion week.

Lets get to the products shall we?

The first product in my box was Fame Fragrance by Lady Gaga

This is a really tiny amount of perfume but none the less I was really excited to smell it because I had heard so many good things about it and I have to say I love the fragrance, it is a sweet scent which reminds me alot of Britney Spears Fantasy. It also sprays out of the bottle black and then dries clear, I have no idea why they have done this but It is very cool.
The next thing I got in my box was Rodial Glamoxy Snake serum and 5 minute facial.

There were two of each of these sachets in the box but they felt like they had nothing in them and at over £100 for the full size my budget couldn't handle that, its safe to say I wont be purchasing these in future.

The next thing in my box was the Balance Me Wonder Eye Cream.

This product I actually really like, I was looking for a new eye cream and this one feels really nice. It cools the under eyes while feeling really moisturising and you only need a tiny amount which is good because this is only a 7ml sample. I might seriously think about purchasing this product in future.

The next thing was Vichy Idealia Day Care Cream.

This is a lovely day cream, it feels moisturising on the skin without being greasy or too rich, it smells lovely and the best thing is its PINK. This is a 15ml pot which is an okay sized sample and the full size is 50ml and costs £25 which is not too bad for a good quality day cream.

The last thing I got in my box was Maghrabian Hair oil.

This was a 10ml sample of this sweet smelling hair oil, it really does the job when it comes to taming hair and I have alot of hair to tame. As with most htings in this box this feels a little small but I suppose I cant expect to get full size products for £10. Its a good little hair oil though and does what its supposed to.

This box had a value of around £26 which makes it worth the money paid but for the amount of trouble I had to go through to get the box in the first place I'm not sure if it was really worth it. Let me know what you thought of your box if you got it this month and if you have ever had any problems with Glossybox's delivery service.
