The Smoked part of the palette. To be honest, this photo does not do the shimmers in the palette justice. When certain colours hit the light, the shimmer and shine you get off them is phenomenal and really blew me away when I first saw it. As with the other palette, I will again do a full review and demonstration of all the beautiful swatches.
Now onto prices
Highlighter - £3.00 and comes in 3 shades pink, peach, and golden.
Lipstick - £1.00 and comes in 36 shades.
100 eyeshadow palette - £12.00
Give Them Nightmares Palette - £6.00
See what I mean about bargains, the prices are so low, it is shocking. Fantastic products and I cannot wait to review them for you. Let me know in the comments what other products from the range I should try, and I will definitely do that. I hope you enjoyed this post.
Till next time,
Look, it is nearly at the bottom!! I'm sad I know but I feel a great sense of accomplishment when I have used up a whole product.My go to eyeshadow palette has been the Stila In The Light palette, I have been loving all the neutral shades in it. I have been mostly wearing the brown matte shades, but a couple of times I used the shimmery shadows at the bottom row of the palette, and recieved some nice comments on how lovely my make up looked.
Love and Hugs.

It is housed in a plastic bottle, which is fantastic as it can be recycled and all of Lush's products are made by hand using the freshest products and it even comes with a use by date and a manufacturing date too so that you know it is as fresh a product as can be.
I hope you have enjoyed this post, and let me know in the comments if there are any products that you would like me to review for you, and I will certainly do it.
Till next time,
Just look at the bottle, bright pink in colour with lime green dots sporadically placed all over it. The neck of the bottle is just beautiful too, with little pink crystals encrusted all over it. I think with the look of the bottle, that any teenage girl would love to have it on their dressing table, but then a middle aged lady like myself also loves to display it on her vanity table. I bet you are thinking that it is expensive because it is a celebrity fragrance, it really is not. For 100mls of eau de parfum, it costs £19.99 in some retail outlets. Now for me that is a huge bargain, because this bottle will last you so long because once you have sprayed it on yourself before work, you can still smell it on your clothes when getting ready to go out in the evening.
I totally recommend you trying this perfume out as it really is a beautiful fragrance and for that price, how can you go wrong, and would make an ideal gift for any girl/womans Christmas present.
I hope you have enjoyed this post,feel free to let me know if there are any other perfumes you would like to me to review and I will certainly do that for you.
Till next time

To be honest, I am a really very shy, nervous and anxious person and about 3 weeks ago, everything just seemed to get too much, and I just felt like running away from everything and everybody. When this happens, I normally just want to lock myself away in my house, shut the curtains, not go online and just withdraw into myself. This is what happened, I just felt I could not live up to what everyone was asking of me, and also, I had put myself out there with my Younique business, and I had had about 25 people say they were interested and only 5 people have so far ordered. I recieved criticism for posting on Facebook, I got laughed at by moms in the playground when I tried to promote it, and to be honest I felt like a huge failure.
It is so hard, when you put your all into something, and when in the past, you have supported others in their ventures, for them to openly ridicule you for trying to make a business work, just made me so mad. I felt like everyone was taking and no one was willing to help me. I felt like I was just stupid for trying and felt like there was a big black cloud over me, and no matter what I tried to do, I could not seem to lift it. Others that had joined Younique were selling way more than me and I just could not get the sales and so I just gave up.It was as if life was going on around me, but I had no place or point in anything any more. So, I retreated into myself and just did not join in anything and tried to just disappear.
But, my partner and my close friends have helped me to try and come out from under my cloud. I am still battling on and I keep trying to whisper my mantra "what does not kill you makes you stronger" but at times, I just want to break down and cry, and never get out of my bed again. I have to keep going, if not for me, then for my little boy and partner who have been my towers of strength these past few weeks. So, to help me try and get back to "normal" and to help me regain a little confidence, I thought I would try to get back into blogging, and working on my make up and beauty which I love and so this will hopefully help me to come right out from under my cloud. It is so hard to keep smiling when all you feel like doing is lying on the floor and shouting "I give up" but I will keep going, I must keep going and hopefully things will get a little easier.
I think I am going to start a positivity journal too, to try and make me see that things are not all bad and with the love and support from my family and friends and readers, hopefully, everything will start to feel better. I have just got to take it second by second, minute by minute and this way, I will make it through each day.
I want to thank you for sticking by me and reading my blog, and even commenting as I am sure this will help keep me going in the days and weeks ahead.

Out of the goody bag next was a dew pot, which is a cream eyeshadow. I love cream shadows as they can either be used as an eyeshadow base, for a normal eyeshadow to be applied on top of, or they can be used as a stand alone shadow.Don't you just love multi use products?as you are getting more product for your money. The colour I recieved is a gorgeous silvery blue, and will look great for any wintery looks I want to create.
It is a lengthening mascara, and has fibres in it to create that length and volume. It is a really nice mascara, and one I will definitely be wearing a lot. I will say the one thing I did happen to notice, was that it has quite a strong fragrance to it, and so may not be suitable for people with sensitive eyes. In the bag also, was a nail buffer and an emery board, which are great additions to any girls make up bag.
I am so excited to say that I have a huge offer for you, my loyal readers that if you visit www.mememecosmetics.com and would like to purchase something I have a voucher code which is mememe25 and you will get 25% off whatever you buy. All you need to do when you are ready to checkout is just type in the code.
I just want to say thankyou to Mememe Cosmetics for all the products I received in my goody bag. The products I totally love, high end products for a drugstore price range. I intend to be purchasing more from their website very soon and really increase my Mememe collection.
I hope you have enjoyed seeing the products and hope you take advantage of the discount code available. Let me know what you get if you do decide to purchase anything.
