Real Techniques Brushes

I have always watched Pixiwoos channel from the beginning so I was so excited to find Sam was bringing out a brush range at reasonable prices. Nic has now joined the Real Technique so I expect more great things to come from this collection.

Lets start with the price. The Core and Starter collections retail for £21.99 at Boots. Everything else varies in price from £6 - £12. For makeup brushes that are to this standard I do think it is a great price. The brushes being synthetic is also a plus as it keeps the price down but has not affected the quality. 

I have done reviews on each of the different colours

Real Techniques Brushes - The Purple Ones - Starter Set

The starter set includes brushes for the eyes. It includes the base shadow brush, deluxe crease brush, accent brush, fine liner brush and brow brush.

Real Techniques Brushes - The Gold Ones - Powder, Expert Face & Core Collection

The Gold Ones are the brushes which you would likely use to create your base. Such as applying you foundation, primers, powders and concealers.

Anastasia Beverly Hills Dipbrow Pomade Review

I have been eagerly awaiting the release of the Dipbrow Pomade from Anastasia Beverly Hills. I already own the brow genius so I was very excited for this to drop through my letter box. I believe this is similar to a Mac product that was part of a limited edition collection. Anyway the dipbrow pomade is a welcomed edition to my makeup bag.

Veluxe Pearlfusion Shadow: Greenluxe Review & Swatches

I am an avid Mac user so when I knew they were bringing out these palettes I had to have one. They come in 6 colours: Greenluxe, Brownluxe, Smokeluxe, Pastelluxe, Pinkluxe and Blueluxe. I purchased mine in the colour Greenluxe. They retail at £30 and can be purchased instore or online. 

Mac have described this palette as 
Five complementary shades that glide on and blend beautifully for infinite day-to-night looks: light peach, bright champagne with pearl, dark olive, blackened green with gold pearl and deep forest green with pearl. Matte to highly pearlized finish.
However, I really don't think this palette is very Green.

Ciate Very Colourfoil Manicure

Today I will be reviewing the Ciate Very Colourfoil Manicure in a mixture of Wonderland and Carnival Couture.

The sets are available in 3 colours - Carnival Couture, Kaleidoscope Klash and Wonderland. The sets retail for £18 on Ciate websites.

I purchased this set from TK Maxx for £5 which is why I have a mixture of two sets. I have the greyish mauve nail polish from the Wonderland collection and the foils from Carnival Couture. In a way I like this better as the foils which are actually provided in the Wonderland kit aren't the best colours.

Anyway, this is what effect the set it suppose to produce.
