Urban Decay Gwen Stefani Palette

Hey Guys!

Picture my face on Christmas morning as I went into the sitting room and saw the Urban Decay Gwen Stefani palette perched beside my stocking in all its gold, shiny glory. Now times that by 1000 and you might come close to how I really felt. I have been seriously lusting after this palette since its launch and the influx of snapchats, instagrams and tweets about it. And now it's all mine!

Amazing packaging aside, I mean just look at it, the 15 shadows inside are beautifully pigmented and can be used together in so many different ways to create simple matte nude looks with Anaheim, Stark and Zone (my fave), slightly grungier looks with the taupe and grey shades like Punk, Steady and Serious, or go all out with a not so subtle pop on the lids with the bright pink, blue and gold shades like Harajuku, Danger, 1987.

L-R: Blonde, Bathwater, Skimp, Steady, Punk, Baby, Anaheim, Stark, Zone, Serious, Pop, Harajuku, Danger, 1987, Blackout 
There's only one shade I experienced any form of fallout with, and that was Pop, the baby pink shimmer that would look amazing popped (see what I did there?) on the middle of the lid as a highlight to brighten up a darker look.

If you'd like to see a video about a few of my favourite looks from the palette, just let me know!

Have you tried this palette yet?

xoxo, Emma

P.S: Happy New Year's Eve, I hope you really enjoy it, no matter how you spend it!

Christmas Wishes

Hey Guys!

I hope you are all totally relaxed right now, all gift wrapping is done, feet up, Christmas jammies on and Christmas movies on the TV. I'm currently in my brand new Harry Potter Christmas PJs, a box of chocolate biscuits nearby and we're about to watch Magic Mike XXL. Don't know how that will pan out with the family watching together, but sure what can you do? ;) 

I'd like to thank you all for reading this little blog this year and watching my YouTube videos. It truly means the world to me, so thank you again! I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and I promise (I really do this time!) to upload posts and videos more often in 2016. The workload in college totally eases off after my placement in January, so I'm all yours after that!

Until then, enjoy the few videos I have scheduled for the next week or two, and most importantly, enjoy Christmas with your friends and family!
