My Top 3 Nude Palettes under £10

Hey my lovelies,

I hope you are all well and having a fabulous week.

As a Beautician and Makeup lover people often ask me what palettes I would recommend for people on a budget, the most asked is for nude palettes. Lets face it with the sea of palettes out there it can be quite a daunting task choosing the right one.

I have gone through my collection and chosen my top palettes. Unsurprisingly they can look similar at first look, and it can be hard to decide which ones to spend your money on.

First up we have I heart Makeup Naked Chocolate £7.99

This palette looks like a big bar of delicious white chocolate. Having already owned one of the Chocolate bars in this collection I was a bit dubious to purchase another one as I thought it would be quite samey, well of course they come from the same theme... chocolate... so they are going to be reminiscent of eachother. However this one is totally a nude lovers dream. It has a mix of mattes and shimmers, granted there are only 5 mattes, but I quite like their shimmery colours and think it fits the theme of the palette quite well. This palette has enough light and dark shades to take you from day to night without having to redo your makeup. The colours as you can see for yourself are very pigmented. They are just so creamy and smooth. They last all day with very little fading.  It is definitely my top choice for a bargain palette, in fact I choose this over my Urban Decay Palettes most days!!

Next up we have I Heart Makeup Death by Chocolate £7.99

Another in Revolutions I heart Make up range this palette comes with a more versatile range, including a black to give a really smokey look and a shimmery purple to add something a little different to your look. I love that you can get a natural look with this palette as well as a dramatic look. Again there are only 6 mattes to 10 shimmers, but I think this ratio is ok as the theme of the palette really asks for a more shimmery result for the most part. I like that you get a matte and shimmery highlight for your brow bone.

Finally in our top 3 we have Sleek, I-Divine A New Day £8.99

This gorgeous palette from sleek has a different feel to it. At £8.99 it is the most expensive of my choices. The shimmers are definitely more pigmented than the mattes of the palette, but I feel like with the right base and layering the mattes they can still pack a punch. It has a good range of dark and light colours and the shade range can look great with most eye and skin colours. I like that it is light yet still comes with its own good sized mirror.

Honourable mentions:

MUA Heaven and Earth £4

At £4 this is the cheapest in the range. This palette isn't the most pigmented, however with layering the shadows they come out gorgeous. Also to pack a bit more pigment in you can spray your brush with a setting spray or even just dampen it and make sure you use a good base. This palette has a lovely range of gold and bronze tones and will suit most skin tones and eye colours. There are no mattes which some people may not be happy with but I feel for the price point it is a good palette and worth giving a shot.

Revolution Salvation Palette Girls on Film £4

When I first tried this palette I was dissapointed in the pigmentation, but on trying the shadows out with a primer underneath you can see for yourself that they are actually rather good, for the £4 price point for the Salvation range on Revolution London they are worth trying out. I like how they separate the mattes from the shimmers so you can clearly see what is available. The mattes are more pigmented than most of the cheaper palettes out there.

In reflection:

Looking over my thoughts and the swatches of these palettes I definitely think Revolution London still comes out on top and has the best quality for a more bargain brand. It definitely rivals the higher end brands and is still a huge love in the beauty community. It is a brand that is used by everyone from teenagers just experimenting to the more mature makeup lovers like myself. It is hard to choose makeup when you go in to a store and see so many different brands claiming to be amazing and offering to last for 633 days it gets overwhelming.

What are your favourite Nude palettes under £10? I am always interested in hearing other peoples thoughts on what they think is worth trying out.

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this.

Fibromyalgia isn't a real illness!!

Hello my lovelies,

I hope this post finds you well. Yes you read this right. I don't believe that Fibromyalgia is a real illness!!

Ok ok, put the pitch forks down!! Before you start a lynch mob, I am not saying that people with it aren't sick. Quite the opposite. I just feel that this mystery illness Fibromyalgia has more to it than just one illness!

For a start it really isn't a diagnosis at all. It is the final straw after a process of elimination. You go through so many tests you will have had more pricks than kerplunk! You will have seen so many different doctors that you will feel like you see them more than your family. By the time they see you don't have a, b, c or d they have no clue so they tell you it is Fibromyalgia. They don't know how you got it, why you got it or really how to treat it either.Every study that is done contradicts the previous study. Some say its to do with nerves, some say its to do with blood. Some doctors claim there is a test to diag…

LMX - Little Mix Makeup Brand Review Part 1 Shout out to my Pout

Hello my lovelies,

I was so intrigued when I saw that there was a new makeup collection exclusive to Boots. LMX is a brand brought to us by Little Mix band members. They have everything from eyeshadows to highlighters.

I purchased a couple of box sets from the Boots 3 for 2 range. Sadly one item came broken. I was gutted but Ho hum, I moved on and just reviewed the rest of the products on their own. I will continue my reviews of the brand as soon as I get my replacement.

So my two items I have thoroughly tested are the Shout out to my Pout Liquid Lipstick and Liner collection (rrp £18) and the Rock in the Gold Get the Look Palette (£14).

Lets start with the lip products, get the negative out of the way early. I purchased this kit of 4 lip liners and liquid lipsticks. I chose this specifically because it was nude tones and I thought well at least one will suit me, how wrong was I. I found them so orange toned, none of them suited my skin tone I was so dissapointed. They tout this as a n…

Living with Chronic Pain: My Positive Story!

I saw a post on a facebook group recently. It just said, Does no one have a positive story about their Fibro. It stopped me in my tracks. We always hear the bad and how awful living with Chronic Pain is, and don’t get me wrong the life I live is not what I ever expected to live, but I am so blessed to be able to stand up and say me I am a positive story!!
Nearly 7 years ago my life hit rock bottom. My body had had enough. I was working in a nursing home and absolutely loved my job. My body was not loving it though. After months of being in more pain than usual I went to the doctor expecting him to give me a sick line for a few weeks and after a rest I wholeheartedly believed that I would be back at work in about a month. That was not to be. I went from bad to worse while we tried to find suitable medication. The doctor took me off the pain relief I had been on while we tried something else, the problem was we then realised the full extent of the pain my body was actually in. We didn’…
