The Marmite of the eyeshadow world: The Subculture eyeshadow palette by Anastasia Beverley Hills...

Ahh; ABH had been teasing us for months with pictures of the Subculture palette on social media and I instantly fell in love with the shade selection, so I jumped on it upon it's release. However I then saw the shit-storm on YouTube with people way more skilled in makeup saying how horrible it was to work with, so I became almost scared to use it.

But I needed to try it to find out if it was something that I'd need to hurry up and return because I just wasn't able to make it work. Well, I've made up my mind, so get the big drumroll ready...

Is it worth going [koko]nuts over? The Koko Kollection Face Palette by Kylie Cosmetics...

I'm late jumping onto a trendy brand, but here we are... 
I actually have a few Kylie Cosmetics items now, but have never reviewed them as her collections that had items that appealed to me were extremely limited edition, so by the time things arrived to me [between two and three weeks] and I'd tried them enough times to review, they'd gone forever. Also; the products I have are all on the 'meh' side; not too bad so I felt as though I had to warn people about throwing their money away, but not anything good enough to make me excited about and eager to share.
I've now got something that is still available to buy, so the question has become "is this face palette going to buck the 'meh' trend for me?"

Blogger Jen (aka JediWife) went to this year's Cosmoprof beauty convention and scored a photo of a swatch wheel for this year's Halloween collection, so we can all find out if China Glaze will be disappointing us with another collection of repromotes, or delighting us with new shades.

Lets not mess around, and jump straight into the good stuff...

What makes this collection exciting is that it contains holographic, duochrome and foil finishes - for £2 each!!

Do you really need anymore incentive to go out and track down this collection, after hearing that?!

Miss Baby Roll mascara by L'Oreal...

Ah - mascara. One of my top three makeup products [concealer and highlighter are my other two], so my head is pretty easily turned whenever I come across a new one...

And... Well, there's not else to add to this story. I saw a TV ad for Miss Baby Roll, so decided to look out for it in Boots, then picked it up when I saw it on offer. Money well spent, or was it thrown away? Only one way to find out...

New Fragrance; VIP Private Show edp by Britney Spears...

"Take a seat, let the champagne flow and enjoy the excitement of a private performance with the legendary talent. Indulgent and endlessly glamorous, VIP Private Show channels Britney’s charisma and sparkle into a scent that perfectly captures her connection to her fans, global success and undeniably alluring appeal."
Britney Spears and Elizabeth Arden are back with their 22nd fragrance release; VIP Private Show, the first flanker for last year's Private Show, which I think is Britney's most adult fragrance release.

Lets see if it looks like they'll be staying in their new direction...
