Primark PS Pure Contour Palette

RRP £4.00 Absolutely gorgeous palette for this price. It's not so great packaging wise, nothing fancy. Cardboard thin shiny casing, though it works well and does the job. 

There are 2 highlighter shades (white and a peachy pink) I'm in love with the white highlighter shade it is so smooth and pearlescentt but they are small pans compared to the bronzer and glow duo pan.  
Some do have a little fallout but nothing major and to be honest fallout doesn't really bother me.

The bronzer is matt and seems to have no fallout at all and is really quite sheer so I think this is perfect for pale skin tones.  

I can say that the formula feels really high quality for something so affordable. I think other brands could learn a few things or two from them. 

I'd definitely recommend and will be on the hunt for more Primark palettes.

Etude House Wonder Fun Park Hair Perfume Mist

 This is a product that I've never tried before from any brand. I have seen it before online but never got around to purchasing. I love the concept of this as I do anyhow spritz my perfume or body spray I am wearing on my hair anyway. Although it just says "Perfume Mist" I assumed it was just a fragrance but actually that's not the case and is formulated for the hair with moisturising properties and leaves my hair shiny.

I have very long hair and a little goes a long way and for me personally I'll only spritz it on the ends as too much product will end up making your hair not shiny but greasy!  

Here is the description of the product. 

2-Layer: Nutrition Oil Layer and Moisturising Water Layer(Before using, shake it well). Sweet and refreshing peach and citrus scents. Long-lasting scents and moisturising. Containing Olive oils, Berries and Peach extracts: Making Healthier hairs and shining hairs.
How to use
1. Before using, shake this bottle well.
2. Evenly spray this on your hairs apart about 10 cm from hairs.
3. Good to apply this mist, before and after using the hair dryer.

Etude House is  one of those most popular Korean beauty brands. Although it's very hard to get in the UK. I like to get mine from trusted sellers on Ebay. Although do look around online there's a lot of K-Beauty shops online if you do a search. YesStyle is one of them, however I've never ordered off there myself but I know they only sell authentic products.
I just love the smell which is delicious, fruity and highly addictive. I also like how it feels on my hair. Would be interesting to try out more of these hair perfume products!

Primark PS Double Dimension Highlighter Powder in Lilac Dreams (Broken & Fix)

After getting back home I noticed it was completely shattered, I didn't want to take it back cause I believe that it was my fault (Moving about in my bag) so I decided to fix it and this happens to be my first time doing so and I think I did not too bad. 

The formula is extremely fragile buttery and airy texture and I'm not surprised it shattered. I would not recommend travelling with this. 

Lilac Dreams is a really pretty pale lilac with pinky reflects. Very flattering for pale skin tones. Seems to blend very well. Not overly the top pigmented but easily wearable. Really not a bad highlighter for £2.50

I got 2 bottles of Isopropyl Rubbing alcohol on Amazon Prime for £5.99 (here) will last ages. I'm not going to do a tutorial as there's a ton of them already online and they're all pretty much the same. 

However use Alcohol! There are some out there which use just Water which I recommend not doing as this will create bacteria growth and will take ages to dry. 
I used kitchen towel to press it and I love the little pattern it has created.

Vampiress Beauty Randomness 42

Maybelline MNY My Blush in 601- Never saw these in stores, purchased this from FragranceDirect for £1.50 here. A perfect highlighter though small (same size as MUA single eyeshadows) it reminds me of the shade and finish of Korean highlighters, which is very hard to come by in the UK

Astor Pure Color Eye Shadow Duo in 730 Jazzy Dahlia- Two of my most used shades when doing eye makeup looks (contour/highlight) I always hit pan on black and white shadows. This duo is nice and pigmented and very silky soft. Purchased here 99p!

Astor Shine Deluxe Glossy Lipliner Pencil in 012 Rose- A lovely easy gliding lip liner which comes in a shiny finish with a tea rose hue. 99p here.

Manhattan Intense Effect Eyeshadow in 450 Burning Heart- Not the greatest eyeshadow in baked form. Quite stiff and not easy to pick up pigment. I did get there in the end so it's not a total fail. I wouldn't recommend for purchase, maybe other shades have better formulas? Who knows but at 75p why not? Here

Manhattan Multi Effect Eyeshadow in 65Q Purple Prediction- Very silky soft but this warm purple hue is lacking in pigment so you need a heavy hand in application. 50p here.

Manhattan Only Square Dancer Eyeshadow Palette- A nice little compact eyeshadow palette containing 4 shades. Really silky consistency but most apart from the white are lacking in pigmentation, as you can see. £1.50 here

Bourjois Shine Edition Lipstick in 24 Rose xoxo

Ever since Revlon Lip Butters were released lots of other brands seem to be bringing out their own versions. It's also happening with the chubby crayon sticks and maybe more so.

Bourjois Shine Edition Lipsticks claim to be 'Ultra Shine Radiant Colour And The Comfort Of A Balm'

24 Rose xoxo- A semi-sheer medium pinky mauve rose' it does have a touch of micro shimmer but it's barely noticeable. 

As this seems to be a semi-sheer colour it doesn't quite have the pigmentation of a lipstick, the shade that I have seems to be a tiny bit sheerer than any of the Revlon Lip Butters I own. 

Rose xoxo does apply very smoothly, glossy but in a balmy sort of way without the heaviness. It's very silky and not the slightest bit sticky or gloopy. 

This lipstick doesn't last very long on me, around just an hour without eating or drinking. I think that by being a very light lip product it doesn't help. Other than that a lovely lip loving product.

No scent or taste. RRP £5.99

Holika Holika Jewel-Light Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in 07 One Carat Diamond

Holika Holika's Jewel-Light pencils come in 20 shades, though not all sellers will stock all of them.
All shades do look gorgeous. 

-Water Resistant
-Smudge Resistant
-Pigmented Colour

One Carat Diamond- A beautiful frosty, icy, iridescent and pigmented white with slight silver undertones. Very pretty and something I haven't come across before in a eyeliner pencil form. It's perfect for the inner corners of your eyes for the glazed doll like look or for that matter anywhere you want to accent your eye look. 

I've had no problems with it moving around or smearing and it was easy enough to remove with makeup remover.

You can get this for around £3.00 to £4.00 including postage/packaging. To me this feels much more like a higher end product to me.
