Urban Decay’s Naked Heat Palette A Hot Addition to the Naked Collection: One of the most anticipated and popular makeup releases of 2017 was the new Naked palette by Urban Decay, called Heat. The Naked range has been a huge success for Urban Decay so it was natural that the introduction of a new palette would be exciting. However, when the palette was finally released it took me a while to decide whether I wanted it as I thought I may already have similar colours in other palettes. So, I waited for people to review and swatch the palette and then eventually decided it was worth adding to my collection.

Summer’s Gone But Not Forgotten - My Summer Bronze Haul: It’s officially Autumn! As much as I love the heat and sunshine of Summer, Autumn and Winter are my favourite times of year! I love my winter woollies, crunching leaves, autumn colours and comfort food! The change in season also heralds a change in makeup and skincare – see the guest post by Brigitte Evans for advice on the latter! Whilst I am enjoying creating makeup looks to reflect autumn colours and themes, I have loved my Summer makeup looks and being bronzed and glowy!

Beauty Subscription Box Reveal Birchbox Does ‘Buy One Get One Free’: If you have been keeping up with my posts you will know that beauty subscription boxes are a love of mine and I am always on the lookout for good offers, new boxes and limited editions! In May 2017, Birchbox, a subscription service that has been around since September 2010 for women and 2012 for men, offered customers a buy one get one free box so naturally I had to order one! In case, you’ve never heard of or tried Birchbox, it was created by two friends to make shopping for beauty products easier. As with most subscription box services you can join and cancel your subscription at any time BUT this only applies to the monthly plan with Birchbox, which costs £10 plus £2.95 postage and packaging. When you join you can complete a questionnaire about your beauty likes so that products you receive can be tailored to you in future boxes and you can pick from a monthly, 6 monthly or yearly plan. In each box, you will receive 5 personalised beauty products, and one of those products can be chosen by you or alternatively you can pick the design of the box. The products will be a combination of sample size and full-size items from various brands, some of which will be well known and some less so.

Beauty Subscription Box Sneak Peak GlossyBox [Review]: Following the Little Known Box review, which is a reasonably new subscription box service, this blog is focusing on an established beauty subscription service called Glossy Box. Each box is delivered every month and contains 5 different beauty items which are generally full-size and tailored to your beauty preferences. You can subscribe for 3, 6 or 12 months and there are also limited edition boxes and a gifting option. I have tried Glossy Box a few times on and off but have never maintained a subscription with them as there are so many great subscription services to choose from now! However, I decided to order a recent box because Glossy Box provided an offer whereby you could receive a bonus box if you subscribed, so I thought why not see what is delivered?

Dippalli Explores Makeup Brands Charlotte Tilbury [Review]: If you love makeup, you will (hopefully!) have heard of Charlotte Tilbury. She is an amazing Makeup Artist, born and trained in London and she has worked with some of the best photographers, models and publications in the world. She has also worked with several beauty brands during her career and in 2013 she finally launched her own makeup range. This has grown exponentially since then and now includes a skincare range as well! In that time, she has won numerous awards and continues to create new and wonderful products for us! If you have never seen or tried her ranges, you are without doubt missing out! From the design of her packaging to the quality of the products, everything she creates exudes beauty, elegance, sophistication and glamour. I first discovered her when her brand arrived at Selfridges in Birmingham and she displayed all her looks. There are 10 in total (so far) and as soon as I saw them I was hooked. I immediately bought The Golden Goddess gift box and since that day I have kept a close watch on everything she creates and releases so I can keep building my collection! This brings me to this review. Not too long ago, I added to my Charlotte Tilbury makeup products and bought a selection of her more recent creations!
