ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS – The Complete Daytime Collection– Limited Edition PR Mailer Kit

I was over the moon when I found that Anastasia Beverly Hills were selling their PR mailer kit on their website due to having limited quantities left – that I just had to get it!

IMG_1495This mailer kit had the entire Daytime collection included for £51 – an absolute bargain when the palette alone is £33, and their liquid lipsticks are £20 a pop! Plus you get these cute Hailie Barber style sunglasses, so it was love at first sight for me!

They also sold the Sunset collection in the complete mailer kit for £49 – so you could grab the entire lot for £100! I decided to stick with just the Daytime collection as I prefer the shade selection and found I would have more use with it!

The eye shadow quad contains the shades; Sunny, Sand Castle, Rose Quartz and Papaya (clockwise from top left), in the usual Anastasia single eye shadow format. Sunny and Rose Quartz are metallic shades with delicious pigmentation, low fallout, whereas Sand Castle and Papaya are matte which are wonderful as a base or adding dimension.

The palette is reusable as the single shade format means you can mix and match and customise the quad for travel needs or for an easy to carry compact for a night out. The palette is a pale pastel pink with a clear lid so you can clearly see the shades in the palette, as well as a stunning palm tree decor.

The liquid lipsticks are both metallic and come in the shades Bellini,, a golden peach shade, and Sunset Punch, a dusty mauve.

Their packaging is different to the usual black and rose gold liquid lipsticks, with the lids being the same pale pink as the palette. Although the packaging is different, the lipstick applicator is the same as their other ones so its very easy to use.

I generally stick to matte lips – but these metallic shades are so delicious to layer on top of a nude A.B.H matte such as Crush or Pure Hollywood to add a bit of metal glamour. The formula isn’t clumpy or bitty which is often the case with anything metallic, these instead are as smooth as their matte shades.

Bottom Line: If you’re an A.B.H fan who is into peachy, golden sunny vibes – these are for you!

Latest Sunglasses Haul – Summer 2018 – Primark Rose Tinted Glasses!

IMG_7020

Looking through rose, and blue, tinted glasses this summer!

I wanted to share with you guys my latest Sunglasses haul I got from my latest shopping trip into town. I got these three sunglasses from Primark, as I genuinely love how inexpensive and stylish they are so I can invest in multiple pairs to add a bit of flair to multiple outfits. Also I tend to break them easily as I forget I’ve got them in my bags so it’s nice to know I can only damage cheap ones rather than Ray Bans…

These three cost me £8 all together, with the top two being £3 and the bottom one being £2. I love how many different designs they have to offer for such cheap prices but always keep an eye on the different categories of sun protection they provide. The bottom pair is Category 1 and the other two are Category 2. If you’re into your eye wear, you should check out the new summer collection Primark Boasts!

Here is a quick refresher, or useful information if you’re unsure, on the different categories!
