When Urban Decay first released images on the third instalment of the popular Naked palettes (not including Basics or Flushed) I was gobsmacked at just how beautiful the colours looked. The rosy-gold hues are absolutely gorgeous and extremely popular currently. I purchased this when it was first release whilst I was overseas last year from Sephora but I do know Australians can purchase it through Beauty Bay.
So I thought I would whip this up ASAP so I can start playing around with my new goodies and including them in my daily FOTDs on Instagram (@heytherejacquelyn if you weren't aware...)!
I decided to make a purchase through Luxola on the afternoon of Thursday the 17th of July and I received it bright and early this morning, Monday the 21st of July - a total of 5 days, including a weekend... ALL THE WAY FROM SINGAPORE. Oh, and you also get a super reliable tracking number! So safe to say I was extremely impressed with the amazing shipping. Thats not all! The parcel was packaged amazingly. Each item was individually wrapped in bubble wrap. Not just a little, but two bubble wrap sheets were used for each item.
|Seriously though... look at the amount of bubble wrap!|
I've been asked to do this since I first created heytherejacquelyn, but I've put it off... until now. I have eight Lime Crime lipsticks and I'm going to lip swatch them all for your enjoyment.
I received this blush the other day and was extremely excited to give it a try! I have previously used their original formula blushes but have never ventured into their Instain range. The shade I was sent is Toile - an intense pink/coral shade that reminds me a lot of Strawberries!
As a fairly new brand of cosmetics, I had only heard of Colour Theory a handful of times. I tried searching for the products to give them a try however, Colour Theory is only stocked in Amcal and Guardian pharmacy and alas, I have none near me! However I was lucky enough to be kindly sent a couple products to test out and I have been pleasantly surprised! I honestly wasn't expecting anything that impressive especially for the price, but wowee, the ones I have tried have been making me want more!
Anyway, let's get into it!
I received five products in total; 2 lipsticks, a bronzer, a nail polish and a nail polish remover.

Instagram has been blowing up lately over the newest releases by the Priceline exclusive brand Savvy by DB. These little packs, smaller than the size of my hand contain two products - new to the brand - for only $5! How could a girl resist? When I went in to my local Priceline there were so many different options it was hard to choose! Products including pigments, blush, concealers, lipstick, lip crayon etc. Everything. I decided upon a blush duo and two pigment packs!

It's been a hot minute since I did my last empty post and I have accumulated a bunch of trash to talk to you guys about. This is another long one, so prepare yourself with a tea and biscuits!
Okay. The heavens created something in the form of an eyeshadow palette. More specifically, the Lorac Pro Palette. With all this new talk about the brand new Lorac Pro Palette 2, I thought I'd give some love to the palette that has definitely got my heart. With 16 beautiful, neutral shades, if you are a neutral eye wearer you NEED this palette, NEED.
