Urban Decay Flushed Palette: Streak


IMG_6115If you seen my 2015 wishlist you may recall seeing this gem and as you can see it has successfully made its way to my collection! I was lusting over this palette for a long while and just looking at it I’m sure you can see why.

I picked up the Streak palette which appears to be the lightest of the bunch so perfect for my ever so pale complexion. The packaging is just so beautiful and like my other Urban Decay goodies I kept the actual box because they make such pretty boxes… is that a weird thing to say!? The palette itself reminds me of the Naked Basics palettes even though I don’t own any it appears similar with the compact sized hard casing and the magnetic closure which I imagine it also has.

The palette features a light bronzer, a champagne toned highlighter and a peachy blush. At first I was a little weary of the bronzer, it didn’t seem to work on my complexion well but after another try I fell in love. Its great for creating a subtle contour and for giving a soft bronzed summer glow. The highlighter is were this palette shines. This highlighter is full of pigmented shimmery goodness. It creates the most beautiful dewy look. Last but not least, a perfect summery coral peachy shaded blush! Urban Decay if you are listening: Single blushes please! Overall I have really took to this palette and its so beautiful for the warmer months for creating that glowy and dewy look. I will definitely be turning to this come summer.

Is the Flushed palette on your wishlist or do you already own it?

2015 wishlist


2015 wishlist
New year, new long list of expensive beauty items I don’t particularly need. Last year seen the start of my makeup obsession and lets just say my purse wasn’t too happy with my shopping decisions. Getting to experiment with different brands and products has allowed me to become more aware of my makeup needs and what products I really need to achieve the best results. Its no surprise I have really took to high end brands and it looks like this year is going to be filled with trips to Space NK and House of Fraser.
Anyway on to the list, I have picked 8 items but lets be real here if I picked every item I wanted to buy then I don’t think it would be quite possible to cover them all in the one post so I’ve stuck to the top 8 most wanted.
First on the list is the best primer I’ve ever tried. Its the highly raved about Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation primer. I have had no luck with primers and I recently got a sample of this and tried it out and lets just say the results amazed me. It is pricey but its hella good. Next is the dream duo from Nars, the Sheer glow foundation and creamy concealer. You may recall seeing this on previous wishlists of mine and as you can tell I have still not spent the cash on it but this year is the year! I also want to try the Urban Decay Naked Flushed palette in Streak, it just looks so heavenly and these shades seem perfect for my pale complexion. Now that my Naked palette collection is complete I need my hands on the Too Faced Chocolate Bar palette. The shades look so beautiful and the palette is always the talk of good reviews so why not! Being stuck with a cheap and terrible pair of eyelash curlers is doing me no good. After hearing constant rave reviews from pretty much every blogger particularly Anna from Vivianna Does Makeup these Shu Uemura curlers are meant to be the bee’s knees. No surprise that Nars made the list again with the Copacabana illuminator which looks like such a beautiful and effortless highlighter. And last but not least after converting my usual stippling brush in favour of a buffing brush for foundation I have noticed far superior results. It is so much easier to blend but I would love to get my hands on the Bobbi Brown Full coverage brush which I have seen so many bloggers using recently. Its pricey but it seems to get flawless results.
So what is on your 2015 wishlist?

Christmas Wish List


Christmas Wish List

Can you believe its less than three weeks until Christmas! Christmas is by far my favourite time of the year, I just love the atmosphere and all the events in the run up to the big day. Anyway of course there is always a little gift giving across Christmas and I have put together just a few things I would quite like to own. Some of these items you may recall me mentioning them before in other posts but sadly they just haven’t came my way yet!
Benefit They’re Real Mascara – Its one of the most raved about mascaras in the beauty world and I want to try it out for myself. I love the Benefit Bad Gal lash mascara and would love to give this one a try.
Urban Decay Naked 2 Palette – Well obvious one here, I picked up the original naked palette and the third one this year and with one left to get its no surprise this is on my list!
Versace Crystal Noir – I have been failing quite recently in the perfume department, I am really in need of a good strong bottle of scented stuff. This scent is quite different for me but its strong and dark.
Real Techniques Eye Starter Kit – If you seen my Fave brushes post not too long ago you will know I am a huge fan of the Real Techniques brushes and one thing I don’t own is any of their eye brushes. I would love to add these to my collection and hopefully they are as good as their other brushes.
What is on your wish list this Christmas?
