NOTD: We Got The Beet by China Glaze...

Today I'm rounding off my reviews for my purchases from the China Glaze summer 2016 Lite Brites collection, by looking at the shade I saved for last because [I think] it is the most transitional one in the collection. 

 If you are also a bit bored by lighter spring/summer shades now, but am not quite ready for the full-on vampies of autumn/winter yet, We Got The Beet has got your back...

NOTD: Papa Don't Peach by China Glaze...

Today's NOTD polish fits the theme of the China Glaze summer 2016 Lite Brites collection really well, as this shade reminds me of my jelly shoes as a child in the late 80's. Plus; do 80's babies remember when inflatable backpacks were really popular in secondary school during the 90's? Papa Don't Peach reminds me slightly of those too...

So; did my Sephora order arrive safely?

Today I'm concluding my Kat Von D Serpentina palette saga. I mentioned here that I wanted the palette, but probably wasn't going to bother ordering it from the Sephora website, as the last eyeshadow palette I ordered through them arrived to me badly damaged and getting a refund (they won't order replacement products for overseas customers) was a hassle.

Then I posted here that Kat herself has said that stock for the palette is so low that it's expected to sell out in the next few weeks [it was only released a couple of weeks ago], so of course I panicked and ended up ordering one...


Well my order has just arrived, so it's time to see if my previous problem was was a one-off, or if I'm in for more headaches with the Sephora customer service team.

[Is it] Mad Love edp by Katy Perry...

Last year I shared my disappointment with the then latest Coty/Katy Perry release Mad Potion. 
Well now they're followed that release up with a new flanker - Mad Love. As I posted last year, Coty originally announced Mad Love as a autumn 2015 release, so I was curious to see is the delay in release was maybe due to it being improved upon, since Mad Potion has been largely panned on most fragrance sites AND most customer review sites. 

So is Mad Love just Mad Potion: Part II, or is it something more then a weak musky vanilla scent? I have recently been gifted a bottle of it, so I was keen to open it and see...

Going, going, [soon to be] gone: the Serpentina eyeshadow palette by Kat Von D...

I've just posted about how I like the look of the Serpentina eyeshadow palette by Kat Von D that is available on the Sephora site, but that I was unsure about risking buying it or not.

However I've just read one of Kat's instagram posts, and by the picture she says that the stock is low and at the rate it's going the palette is expected to sell out within the next fortnight. I don't know if it'll be relaunched when the brand lands in the UK later this year, so after umming and ahhing I have now decided to risk the international shipping [see my last post for my rant] and have placed an order. So now I want to let other people who are undecided that the palette is almost gone.

Lets see the palette in more detail...
