Sweet Dreams

models own lip gunk sweet dreams palette review makeupmonster

First off, I’m getting married in 7 days people!! Seriously how amazing is that? Expect a lot of random lovey dovey/wedding talk from now on but I promise I’ll try not to be too annoying! Anyway to get back on track, let me introduce you to these colourful beauties. Summer attracts the most colourful posts of the year on the blog and today is a prime example. Model’s Own are branching out from being permanently under my radar to being bang smack in my face with this fluro, candy inspired collection. There’s a whopping line of products being added to the range with loads of eyeshadow, lipsticks, nail polishes and everything in between.

However, I really need to tell you about these two because lads, the formula here is something really special. Continue Reading

NARS has the ability to either turn you off with high prices and so so products or elicit an unquenchable desire to try their latest collections. I used to be in the last camp, but then I got a little bored and didn’t bother with them as much. That was until recently when I was pulled back in by their gorgeous Velvet Matte Skin Tint and since then I’ve been showing them a little more interest. The newest NARS booty in my house is this little blush ‘Impassioned’ which is part of their current Spring line and an instant winner for pale skin tones which means it’s won me over straight away.
