The Balm Cosmetics 'Meet Matt(e) Nude' Palette

I am here to introduce you today to a wonderful matte eyeshadow palette from The Balm Cosmetics and to do that I will insert some photographs below with some swatches and two looks I achieved with them, together with a flash review on YouTube. Yes people, I said YouTube. Provided that you can overcome a) the quality of the video which is pretty much awful b) that I kind of talk like I'm in slow motion or something and c) my accent and pretty annoying voice, then you will find out a bit more about this palette from my ramblings within.

Sally Hansen CSM. 'Joanne Hynes Collection' Swatches

Leading Irish Designer, Joanne Hynes, has chosen eight shades of Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure to compliment her new collection called '11', a limited edition collection featuring 11 pieces of accessories  and 11 pieces of clothing. While this is a collaboration between the two brands, the nail polishes featured within, are priced the same at €8.95 each and are not new shades/additions to the Complete Salon Manicure family, but instead are being revisited and brought into the spotlight.

"Orange is the pop art colour of the season, this glossy orange can lift your skin tone in the winter and illuminates your hands. Wear it layered and glossy for a clean positive look. It is the exact same shade as the laser cut perspex embellishment in my “11” collection, it juxtaposes really well against navy and metallic tones for a new slant on summer days gone by. Wear this for a confident positive entry into winter for the new season.”

The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipsticks

Launched back in August of this year and replacing the' Colourglide' lipstick range from The Body Shop, the 'Colour Crush' range comprises of 24 gorgeous shades available in three families: reds, pinks and nudes. The range is vast, the formula is gorgeous and I have three of these to show you today. 

Colour Crush Lipsticks by The Body Shop

RRP: 12.95/each

 L to R: 201, 315 & 305

The formula of these is very moisturizing and feels more so like a balm rather than a lipstick when applied, and are super comfortable in wear due to cherry seed oil and Community Fair Trade marula oil contained within. Oh, and they smell rather delicately rose floral delicious also.
Swatches L to R: 201, 305, 315
