NOTD: Lookin' Gore-geous by China Glaze...


It's time to go through the six new polishes in the Halloween 2017 nail polish collection (Happily Never After) by China Glaze, and I'm going to start by focusing on Lookin' Gore-geous.
I admit that this shade does look pretty boring next to the other polishes in the Happily Never After collection, but there are two toppers in the line-up [a glitter one & a shimmer one] which we'll be looking at next and this shade is perfect under them both.

Should Elsa step aside? Snowella body mist by Zoella Beauty...


CHRISTMAS IS COMING GUYS!!!
When I was flicking through the new releases on the Fragrantica site the other week, Snowella caught my eye and as my inner child is getting giddy at the hints towards the festive run-up in the forms of Christmas cards and biscuits appearing in stores, she just HAD to have it, to the point that I immediately went into the Superdrug site to order the set. I've never tried anything from the Zoella Beauty line before, but I mean, what's not to love about this? Right?!

The inspiration, name, and packaging screams that this will be a new festive nod, celebrating all things snow and ice. But now it's time to see if it can deliver on what it is promising and if I have indeed found a new "Christmas is coming" fragrance. Or will we instead find out that I should be doing a better job at suppressing my inner child to save my money...

I wanted the Kylie look, but did I get it? The I Want It All palette, by Kylie Cosmetics...

The I Want It All palette [also known as the Birthday Book] is a limited edition palette that is currently still in stock on the Kylie Cosmetics site, so I'm not going to hang around and blather on - instead lets  dive right into a review, as that's what you came here for...

NOTD: Wear Something Spar-Kylie, by Nicole By OPI...


I think that Wear Something Spar-Kylie was in a 4-pack I picked up from the clearance shelf in TK Maxx a few year's ago, and I never bothered with it because I assumed that it was a glitter topper, like the other Kylie-named polish in Nicole's Kardashian Kollection range. 
I didn't know  what to wear the other day, so just blindly reached in the picnic basket I keep most of my untried polishes in and this is what came out. I'm a secret girly girl, so was excited that I grabbed something pink and sparkley, and even better is the fact that this polish was revealed to be a texture polish when I tested it to see how dense the glitter was, as I love textures - especially OPI's liquid sands.
How similar will OPI's little sister be in formula?

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...
