Everyone raves about, Mac, Benefit, Inglot etc. But the make up brand i have a lot of and i use in my everyday make up routine is, Victoria Jackson. If you guys haven’t heard of her before, she has a website and is based in the USA but i’d definitely go and check it out! So i’m going to show you my make up palettes i have and here’s hoping you will love them as much as i do and purchase some!

So this was one of the first palettes i received and it’s my favourite out the lot of them! It has more natural colours and a few odd darker. They are really pigmented and what’s also great about this palette is that you got a eye liner and mascara with it! In the next few weeks i’m going to be doing some make up looks using this palette so keep an eye out for that!

Now, i haven’t used this as much as i wanted to as i tend to use lipsticks more than lipglosses but i do use then when i want to tone down a brighter lipstick and even it out to the colour my skin tone matches. So i really only use this palette for that, and that alone! But this would be good for people who are into glosses and want something a little different.

This is the bronzer i always use on a night out, i have two of these as i love them so much! They are just the perfect shade for my skin, not to in your face but not to light either! I’d go and check them out. They definitely wont disappoint! 

I got this palette and another (which will be down below) in a set, Day and Night. This is the night time palette. More darker eye shadows, blusher and lips. I really do love this but i haven’t been brave to wear dark purples out yet. But, i’m going to start using all my high end make up more, so a make up look will definitely be on the cards using this palette! (LEFT TO RIGHT)
  • highlight
  • three purple eye shadows
  • blusher
  • two red lip glosses

This is the ‘day time’ palette. As you can tell, i have used this A LOT. I haven’t really used it for the past 4 months but this used to get a lot before then! The blusher is just the right colour for me and i don’t want to finish it as i can’t find another one i love as much as that! The three eye shadows are 2 pinks and a black. I used to blend those three constantly together to give a smokey eye look. (LEFT TO RIGHT)
  • Bronzer
  • 2 pink and 1 black eye shadow
  • blusher
  • 2 pink lip glosses

Finally, last but not least. My large palette. Now, must admit, i found this at the make of my make up drawer about a month ago and can’t believe i forgot about it! The four eye shadows are totally me at the moment as i’m going for a more nude look on my eyes! I get a lot of use out of the blushers at the moment to and use them daily but as for the poor lip glosses i just feel like i neglect them as i’m just not a fan of them! If i could take them out of it and pass it on to someone else, i would! You may be wondering why there are three brushes missing, but that’s because i took them out and put them in my make up pot. I don’t tend to use brushes i get with sets and use my own! 
I hope you guys enjoyed this VERY long haul. Please check out her stuff, it’s incredible!

So this month was my first month receiving a GlossyBox! I was so excited about it, but also a little nervous as i had a heard a few people say it was a waste of money and it wasn’t all the fantastic! But, i thought i’d go for it and see myself if it’s worth it or not! This is not a review. This is me showing you what i received, then the start of September i will be doing a review on the products!

August 2013 box
Jelly Pong Pong eye pencil

When i first opened this, this is what i was instantly drawn to! I am so excited to try this out! Not only is it a eye pencil but it’s also a shadow stick! You can buy these online on the jelly pong pong website at £10.50.

Emite eye lash curlers 
These are so beautiful and i can’t wait to try them out! I am a little scared of eye lash curlers! (i’m not the only one right!?) but i was going to buy some so these saved me some money! You can buy these on Emite’s website and these are £20.
TRESemme Keratin Smooth hair treatment 
This was a weird one! I was going to buy this in Tesco a week before i got this Glossybox, so i was so happy when i seen this in it! I can’t wait to test it and see if it actually works! This is £1.49 in highstreet stores!

Oceane make up remover pen

Urban Veda Skincare
This is a daily radiance cream which i’m hoping to stick to! It says it brightens up your face and balances skin tones! But i’ll be the judge of that! You get these on there website and start from £7.99 a bottle!

I recently bought rimmel apocalips in the colour ‘Luna’ as I seen it in a video by my favourite youtuber ‘zoella’ and love the look of it!

Apocalips by rimmel is a lip liqueur and is basically a lipgloss and lipstick in one! It’s very pigmented and last me ages! The colour I bought, Luna, is pink/orange and will only suit certain skin types, so make sure you do a tester before you apply as I wouldn’t want you wasting your money on lip products that you don’t like, as I have done it before and immediately regretted it! 

This product cost me, £5.99 but at the moment on superdrug they are doing a 2 for £10 offer, so get them whilst it last! You can also buy them in boots and no doubt any other drug store! I’d love to hear your opinions of this product!

Rimmel scandal eyes, is a eye shadow stick/eye pencil and is around about £4.49 from superdrug and boots! There are two types of this stick, a eye kohl pencel or the thicker shadow stick which I purchased!

My best friend left hers at mine one day and I was intreged about it as I’d never seen it before and I was running out of pencil eye liner! So I wandered into superdrug and bought it and have been using it for about 1 month now and I like it! If your into making your eyes darker then this is the pencil for you! It goes on quite thick and smoothly along your waterline or eye lid! The only problem I am having with it is that it smudges a wee bit but that’s because I’m not used to putting on such a thick eye liner on my water line yet, I am debating going out to buy the kohl pencel and using the thicker  stick as a more eye lid base product! I will do photos of my eyes as well if to want to see the finishing product! Let me know in the comments below!

Today I will be writing about maybelline’s gel eyeliner that I bought on superdrug for £7.99! (Photo below)  If you are like me and wear liquid eyeliner most days you know it can be a bit of a chore and time consuming to make it neat and perfect! I must admit I usually rush around last minute, shove it on and then go out leaving the house hating the way my eyes look!

I had walked pasted the maybelline gel eyeliner for weeks debating if I should get it or not as it looked tricky to apply as is just a eyeliner brush and a pot filled with the gel! I gave in though and gave it a bash and its one of the best decisions I have made! It’s actually so easy to apply and makes your eyes look amazing as you can apply it either thick or lightly and still shows amazing results! The only problem for me as it stays on better when I apply primer to my eyelids but primer is such a good buy I’d definitely buy some if I were you! If I want the gel to stay on longer though I add a little bit of liquid over it just to be safer instead of reapplying throughout the day when I don’t have time!

If you want me to do a tutorial on how to apply it let me know in the comments below and I will do one for you!
