[Underneath the] Harvest Moon eyeshadow palette by City Color...

I love watching EmilyNoel83 on YouTube as her preferences in makeup seem largely similar to my own, and her thoughts on various products strike me as being honest. Today's review will be focused on a video she recently did where she was reviewing cheaper makeup palettes [Surprisingly good palette's - under $10!]; I've been wanting to try some new eyeshadows out as I've become bored with my smallish selection of products, so I thought I'd give one of the eyeshadow palettes she found to be pretty good a whirl.

She did think another City Color palette was a bit better in comparison to what I have to show you and I also found the shades in her top-pick palette [Figtastic] more appealing overall, but I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a brand I've never tried before and I couldn't find it for under a tenner on a UK site (Amazon do sell it. £8.74 & £4.85 post). But since I love the look of the shades with peach and burgundy tones in them in the Harvest Moon palette too, and found it easily at an affordable price [£5.99 with free post on Amazon UK], I decided to give it a go and see what I thought of it...

Hey Baby; the Gwen Stefani Blush Palette by Urban Decay is here...

Gwen let UD in on her best tricks (she’s big on defining and highlighting), and together they created her perfect blush palette. Get her glowing, contoured looking skin with six shades of blush, bronzer and highlighter that are versatile enough for any skin tone. Urban Decay’s extremely blendable, finely milled Afterglow formula goes on sheer and provides upto eight long hours of wearable, streak-free color. Luxurious and lightweight, it has a soft, creamy texture that always applies beautifully and feels amazing.   
Everything in the limited-edition UD | Gwen Stefani collection was developed in close collaboration with Gwen. Urban Decay’s product development team spent countless hours at Gwen’s house, talking makeup and working with her on every detail of the collection. Gwen even directed the packaging design, which was inspired by her love of black-and-white graphic prints and antique gold accents. Urban Decay created everything with Gwen, filling a void by developing all of the perfect shades she always wished she had in her collection.

NOTD: Breathless by Pretty Serious...

This beautiful kelly green limited edition shade was created for friend of Pretty Serious. Hannah from Polly Polish to celebrate her wedding...
The short blerb on the Pretty Serious site's product page says it all about their new polish - Breathless was created to the founder's friend's likes and dislike's in polish, and is limited to 300 bottles because the polish batch was made as a wedding gift for the bride and her wedding party. When it's gone it's gone, so if you like what you see here it don't hang around umming and ahhing too long. 


That being said, lets get to reviewing and swatching this special shade from my latest Pretty Serious order, and find out if it's a springtime wonder or a April downpour...
