MAC Burgundy Times Nine Palette

Hey Guys,

This is a palette that I have quickly incorporated into my everyday makeup routine (updated video coming soon!) and I love it. I generally use the two mauve-y matte shades (shade 2 and 7) on a day-to-day basis, and then when I'm in the mood for a bit more intensity, I'll add in the matte plum shade (shade 5) in the outer corner and tightly packed at the lash line, with lashings of mascara. Let's be honest though, when do I not use lashings of mascara?

The palette is not only gorgeous for daytime though, I have often used it for darker, smokier looks for dance performances and nights out too. The colours blend like a dream and are very buildable so you can really customise how natural or dark you want your eye look to be. I love using my Peach & Pearl blending brush (currently £4!) with the shades, as it helps to blend them so flawlessly.

Have you used the Burgundy Times Nine palette before? What do you think of it?

xoxo, Emma

Peach & Pearl Brushes

Hey Guys,

Long time, no chat. I'm currently on my Easter holidays so I have two weeks to fill with blog post writing and YouTube video filming! Today I'll be talking to you about a vegan, cruelty-free brush brand that my sister and I found at BeautyCon London: Peach & Pearl.

The brand is still quite small, but the brushes are the softest brushes that I have come across; even softer than Real Techniques! The amazing thing about the brand is that they often have flash sales, and I actually picked up this 7 piece set during their 80% off birthday sale, reduced from £65 to £13, and that included shipping!

They currently have a 70% off sale and you don't need a code, so you can get this brush set for £20! The set contains 4 face brushes (powder, blush, contour and stippling) and 3 eye brushes (large blending, small blending and a flat brush, which would also be great for concealer). I already have the contour brush and large blending brush, which I bought in BeautyCon, but I use them everyday so I'm delighted to have backups. The brushes blend products like a dream and I haven't had an issue with shedding at all, something I'm very picky about with makeup brushes.

I would highly recommend trying out the Peach & Pearl brushes, they are fantastic quality, and such a bargain too.

xoxo, Emma

P.S: This is not a sponsored post, I just love the brushes and thought I should share them with you all!
