Any time I was going to the States on holiday, I would get ridiculously excited at the prospect of picking up new make up from brands we couldn’t get in the UK. Fast-forward a few years and many of those brands we coveted have arrived and are readily available to us. One of these brands, and the one that I probably got the most excited for was Kat Von D Beauty.
I think i’ve been pretty well behaved when it comes to spending recently. I have really reigned myself in and purposely shied away from the new product releases. That was until this beauty landed. When I seen it on social media ahead of the launch, I knew I wanted it. Then when I swatched a pre release version in store at Debenhams, I knew I needed it. With the new and improved, frugal Lynsey, I decided to take a step back and if I was still thinking about it a few days later, pick it up. Needless to say, it only took two more days before it was mine…
I’ll admit it, I, like most of you, am usually open to the power of suggestion when it comes to new beauty products. However, there are a few brands out there that really suck me into their new launches and one of them is Kylie Cosmetics.
In April, when I seen on social media that this collection was launching and that the collection was a set of all nude lip cremes, I was already sold before I had seen swatches.
I resisted this palette for so long. I tried really hard. But I simply couldn’t escape the temptation on social media. I eventually caved a couple of weeks ago and picked the little gem up and I couldn’t be more pleased that I did it.
It’s no secret that I love a good luxury brand and product. However, that being said, I really enjoy find and exploring more affordable drugstore alternatives and dupes when they come my way – the money saved means more make up right?
This week I thought I would share my thoughts on the comparison of two chocolate bar eyeshadow palettes – the cult original from Too Faced and a more recent offering from Makeup Revolution’s sister brand, I Heart Make Up, Death By Chocolate palette. Although the shades in each palette are not the same, there are still many similarities.
Even though I received a shedload of make up and beauty products for Christmas, the beauty junkie in me already has a lust list of products I’m ready to pop in my shopping basket….
