Urban Decay UD XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Palette

“If you have a spare £42 after the bills are paid. I would highly recommend you check out Urban Decay’s XX Vice Ltd Reloaded Eyeshadow Palette. It’s a selection of Urban Decay’s best selling eyeshadows from the last 20 years and a few new ones thrown in. The packaging is gorgeous and it comes with a high quality double ended brush. The Vice XX palette has you covered for all your eyeshadow needs- there are mattes, neutrals, brights, metallics, you name it. And the pigmentation is all you would expect from UD. It’s a limited edition, so snap it up!” Nia from Nia Patten Looks

 “There’s a lot of buzz and hype starting to build around the launch of new skincare range The Ordinary. And rightly so. I’ve been trying out two of their serums and I am completely amazed at the results I have already seen. This range is going to shake up the beauty industry and is bringing quality, results proven ingredients to everyone at super affordable prices. I’ve got a full write up on my site if you want to see more.Julie Jenkins from That Age Style

Marc Jacobs Air Blush Soft Glow Duo


Kate Fawcett

Kate Fawcett

“When the Marc Jacobs Air Blushes launched recently, I knew I had to try them out.  The idea behind the Air Blush is that the palette contains two beautiful shades for a customisable application. Each palette is made using a ‘soufflage’ (French for air whipped) process to provide a radiant, natural finish that’s virtually undetectable on the skin. What I love most about this formula is that it’s completely fool proof – no application is too heavy. However, it’s the way it seamlessly blends into the skin and layers perfectly on top of other powder or cream products, that I enjoy the most. It adds the most beautiful finishing touch to the cheeks and most importantly does not budge throughout the day.” Kate Fawcett from Sugarfixxbeauty

Manny MUA Makeup Geek Palette

Rebecca Varley

“Although I’d seen Ree’s review of the Manny MUA Makeup Geek Palette I’d never actually swatched it until this week when I met up with Manny himself in London. As someone with green eyes and red hair it has the perfect combination of warm russet oranges, soft champagnes and gentle, flattering cranberry and plums to suit my colouring. The duo chrome shade Insomnia in the bottom left of the palette is probably my favourite ever eyeshadow. It has a deep claret base with a petrol green shimmer over-layer that looks insanely beautiful on the lids and yet is surprisingly wearable. Until recently you could only buy this palette by shipping it over from the US and paying hefty customs charges, but happily it’s now launched in the UK too.”  Rebecca Varley – ReallyRee Beauty Editor

Burberry Lip Velvet In Damson


Natasha Kundi

Natasha Kundi

When Burberry released its beauty collection, I was dying to get my hands on it. I rarely buy lipsticks online but I made a fluke with this one and it was totally worth it. Burberry Damson lipstick is a shade of dark purple. Its my favourite investment. Although it will suit any skin tone I feel as someone with yellow undertones (asian) it looks just perfect. It’s as light as a feather and very moisturising at the same time. I love the fact that it lasts all day, no matter how many times I eat or drink. Its also a perfect colour for Autumn/Winter.Natasha Kundi from
