I think I said in my last post that I'd neglected my blog, well I've done it again. Christmas came around and I was so busy and worn out that I didn't have the time or energy to sit down and write a massive post. Nevertheless I'm back, hopefully more frequently than last, but I thought I'd share my current favourites at the moment with you, enjooooooy!

Tanya Burr 'Beautifully Defined' Palette

Tanya Burr 'Beautifully Defined' Palette

I got this palette from my nan at christmas and I was actually pleasantly surprised. Considering it was only £9.99 for 3 eyeshadow shades, a bronzer shade, a highlight and a liquid highlight I wasn't holding out too much hope for pigment but I reach for this everyday. The liquid highlight I wasn't too keen on, I don't feel like that actually did much to my face butt then I'm yet to find any liquid highlight that does. However, the bronzer shade and highlight shades are probably my all time favourites. I reach for the bronzer shade without fail now, it's such a nice subtle colour and blends so nicely. It blends into an almost natural looking bronze effect. The highlight shade as well is amazing. I swatched it on my hand and it didn't really do much but on my fan brush and then applied to my face, yeesssss! It's so so cute and blends out looking like a natural glow. Some highlighters I've tried have just left a white / chalky looking line across my face but this is gorgeous and would highly recommend. I haven't really had the chance to play around with the eyeshadow shades however just from swatching on my hand they're very pigmented!

Sleek MakeUP 'Solstice' highlight palette

 Another present from christmas, this one from a work friend. I've been on about this palette for so long but never got round to actually buying it myself. I think I tweeted once about how I needed this palette and my old pal came to the rescue and bought me it. I love this palette, every shade is amazing especially the 3 powder shades. I love putting the cream one along my cheekbones before my foundation just for a glowy base then going over the top with a powder later on. The glow is amazing and whenever I'm wearing it I always get asked what it is. The shade I reach for the most is the bottom left hand corner or bottom right depending on what look I'm going for. I also LOVE using the bottom left for inner corner highlight on my eyes!

This came in the Makeup Revolution 12 days of christmas make up box and I'm SO glad it did. I love this cream. It adds such a healthy and radiant glow to your skin, you can use it all over or just on the places you would add a highlight powder to add a little bit more glow. I personally use it all over my face underneath a glowy foundation so whatever angle you look from my skin has a glow to it which I love. It's super light weight and easy to apply, once it's been applied you can't even feel it on the skin which I love. I would recommend this to everyone!

Morphe 35F Palette

Prettiest palette ever!! I am in love with palette. I could just look at it all day and be happy. Every colour in this palette screams autumn / winter to me which I love because autumn is my favourite time of year. Although I'll definitely be using this palette all year round. The pigment of all these shades is just amazing, considering the palette is super cheap you wouldn't think the quality would be great but you are wrong... amazingggg!! After trying this palette I'm eager to look at more of their palette Morphe have out. The shades all blend and apply super easily and the matte shades are all buildable which I love. For £21 I can't complain and would recommend everyone go check out the Morphe Palettes!
