Makeup Revolution Naked Chocolate Palette

Posted by Lucy Redford at 11:14 0 comments
Can we just take a moment to admire how utterly gorgeous this packaging is, please? Come on, it looks like a chocolate bar!
As for the 16 eye shadows inside, well, they're equally as gorgeous. Ranging from shimmery shades to matte ones, there's something for everyone. And at £7.99, this is perfect! PERFECT!
The shades all have really cute names; my favourites are Frosted Choc, a light shimmery brown, Buttons, a dark shimmery brown, Toblerone, a light matte brown and Wonka, a dark matte brown.
All the shades blend extremely easily and the longevity is SO good! At about six in the evening, my eyeshadow stills looks just as it did that morning, which I definitely wasn't expecting.
If I was being really picky, I'd say one or two of the matte shades are slightly chalky, but the shimmery shades are flawless, amazing pigmentation with no fallout whatsoever!
Finally, even if you're a beginner like me and still mastering putting together an eye makeup look, this palette is fab because any the shades work nicely together!
Oh, and it has a huge mirror, which is so handy when travelling!
That's it for today's post! I hope you've enjoyed it!
Until next time,

Weekly Happiness Roundup #1

Posted by Lucy Redford at 00:46 0 comments
Hey guys! Yesterday, I uploaded a video onto my YouTube channel, where I basically shared one thing from each day of the week that had made me happy. So, I thought I'd do a similar thing on my blog as I feel I haven't been posting as much recently and miss it lots!
Weekly Happiness Roundup
On Sunday 4th October, I was happy because, that morning, my mum, my friend, her mum, her gran and I went to Lechlade and had cream tea in this lovely coffee shop called Vera's Kitchen. Then, we had a quick walk around the town itself, dashing in and out of all the amazing, quirky little shops. In this one antique shop, Belle's, I think its name was, Mum and I spotted a teddy bear, who looked incredibly sad sitting all by himself, so, we just had to buy him and because he's quite old, we gave him a fitting name, Edward.
On Monday, I was happy because I had a really cosy evening. First off, I had a steamy shower, then put on my cosiest pyjamas, hopped into bed a watched YouTube on my laptop, all whilst listening to the rain pitter-patter against my window. It was bliss!
Then, on Tuesday, I started a new book called Finding Audrey and it's just fantastic. This made me happy because, recently, I've been struggling to find a good book that I'll actually finish reading, but now I have done!
On Wednesday, I watched the finale of the Great British Bake Off and Nadia, my favourite won, which I was very happy about!
Then, on Thursday, I read more of my book snuggled up by the fire and this made me happy!
On Friday, I was happy because obviously it was Friday, but also, I had a good day at school, and an especially good PE lesson, because we played five-a-side netball and my team did really well in both games we played.
Yesterday, I was happy, because Mum, Dad and I got up fairly early and went to IKEA for our breakfast. Then, we had a walk around and my parents bought me my birthday present, the Alex 5 Drawers, which we aren't going to assemble till my actual birthday, so I have something to look forward to! Also, that evening we had Chinese takeaway, which just made an already great day even better!
So, I hope you enjoyed this post! If you have a few minutes (3 minutes and 16 seconds to be precise), then feel free to go and check out my YouTube video by clicking here!
Until next time,
