Stepping Into Autumn | NYX Warm Neutrals Ultimate Palette


NYX Warm Neutrals Ultimate Palette
We can officially call it Autumn without everyone else having a fit that it isn't 'officially' 
Autumn. Well it is now, so bring on all the Autumn goodness! In my first little Autumn post of 2017, I want to talk about the NYX Warm Neutrals Ultimate Palette. I have been eyeing this up since July time, just waiting for Autumn to come along! This is THE ultimate palette to step into Autumn with.

NYX Warm Neutrals Ultimate Palette
To me this just screams Autumn, the burnt copper hues and warm golden neutrals will leave you feeling like an actual Autumn leaf! I had never tried any NYX shadows before so couldn't wait to see what they're like. I was very impressed. The shadows are lovely and soft and very pigmented, it's not hard to create a beautiful look. Considering this palette has 16 shades all for just £16 I was almost expecting the quality to be not so great. In fact this holds its own compared to my high end palettes. I'm not usually a high street eyeshadow person, I never use them because I always find myself having to build up the shades soooo much because the pigmentation is just awful and the formula can be dry. The NYX Warm Neutrals Palette is just the opposite - thank god! The shades are gorgeous and blendable, you don't need to use half the pan for it to show up! The shades are just to die for, they're right up my ally and I will be using this all year round. This is probably one of the only palettes in my collection (and I have a lot) that I can really see my self using and loving every shade. The Warm Neutrals palette has a lovely mix of shimmering and matte shades, I usually just stick to shimmer but the mattes are so beautiful in this - I've been converted! 
I'm so impressed with the NYX Warm Neutrals Ultimate Palette, I really want to try more from the brand. The quality is just unbelievable for the price, if you can't justify forking out £40 for a Naked palette or other high end palettes, then you really don't need to because this does the job perfectly! I happily reach for this over my high end palettes regularly!

I would love to know what else you think I need to try from NYX beauties. Please stay tuned for some more Autumn goodness coming your way!

DUPE ALERT | L'Oreal Paradise Mascara


DUPE ALERT L'Oreal Paradise Mascara and Too Faced Better Than Sex
If I had to pick one makeup product that was exploding out of my dressing table because I love trying  so many of, it would have to be mascara... or lipstick or palettes. Ok but today we'll go with mascara! I love trying new mascaras, I'm one of those lucky ones that can kind of get along with most mascaras (I'm sorry ok, don't hate me!). Some of my favourite mascaras come from Maybelline including Lash Sensational. My favourite high end mascara is the Too Faced Better Than Sex. I couldn't ignore the hype from L'Oreal's newest mascara release and I folded and got myself the new L'oreal Paradise Mascara! I haven't actually tried a L'Oreal mascara before so I was very excited to give this one a go. Once I did, I couldn't help but notice it was a complete dupe for my very much loved Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara!

L'Oreal Paradise Mascara
Of course the copper packaging caught my eye and reeled me in and I couldn't wait to try it that next morning. The brush is full and looks identical to the Too Faced Better Than Sex mascara. This is probably my favourite kind of brush, I'm not that into plastic brushes they can kind of pull my lashes too much, I much prefer the fuller fibre brushes. Immediately this mascara gave me longer fuller lashes and it instantly reminded me of Better Than Sex. Paradise mascara focuses much more on the length than it does the volume. The volume is still nice but it's more for longer more defined lashes. It doesn't take a lot of work to get you your long gorgeous paradise lashes, usually I'm sat there going over and over to get any kind of length! Paradise mascara instantly gives you beautiful long lashes that feel so soft to the touch - it almost feels like you're not wearing any mascara at all! My lashes stay looking perfect all day long without the heaviness of a million coats of mascara. I'm usually very loyal to Maybelline for high street mascaras, but I can honestly say I will buy this again it's that great! (It's not cheating if they're made by the same company right!?)

L'Oreal Paradise Mascara is a complete dupe for Too Faced's Better Than Sex! Down to the brush, the finish and even the packaging slightly! If you can't justify spending £19 on the Too Faced mascara then definitely try the slightly more affordable L'Oreal Paradise mascara at £11.99 - it's just as good!

Have you tried any of these two mascaras beauties?
