Since I had to order my Sephora Beauty Insider birthday gift, I thought I would make the shop worth my while by also picking up a palette I was eyeing, the Anastasia Beverly Hills Prism palette. I know people might be a bit gun shy after the whole Subculture debacle, but I was never interested in the Subculture palette in the first place. The Prism palette in comparison really caught my eye and I decided to go for it.

Versus: Make Up For Ever Ultra HD and Inglot HD Perfect Coverup

Something I’ve been into lately is foundations. I feel like I’ve been accumulating a lot of them, and genuinely enjoying trying all of them out. Today I wanted to pit an old favourite against a newcomer. The Make Up For Ever Ultra HD (and prior HD foundation) has had a fantastic place in my foundation lineup.

I find a lot of brands are pumping out these types of products, but Essie being one of my holy grail brands, I had high expectations.

Zoella Beauty Jelly and Gelato

If you know me, you’ll know that I’m a huge fan of cute. Cute anything really. Puppies? Sure. Babies? Why not? Makeup packaging? Now we’re getting crazy. Zoella Beauty, the line created by Zoe Sugg of YouTube super stardom, introduced a new collection called Jelly and Gelato. We are talking out of this world adorableness with the colouring, the packages, and the products themselves. You can definitely see the ‘jelly and gelato’ influences all over the place. I have three items from the collection to showcase for you guys so we’ll get right into it.
