Beauty: Collection Eyes Uncovered Nude Bronze Palette

This palette from Collection is incredible and I'd recommend it to anyone, especially people who are starting out with their make-up collection. It's a bargain at only £3.99 and comes with six shimmery bronze shades.

From left to right you have Ivory, Mink, Ochre, Golden Brown, Ember and Nutty.

All of the shades have great pigmentation and are lovely to apply - there is also minimal glitter which is a big plus for me. Usually with a palette I tend to use the same few shades but I have used all of these equally. I think my favourites are Ochre and Ember. Ochre is quite similar to half baked in the Naked palette and Ember reminds me of MAC's Sable. Generally the shades are very similar to the Naked palette so this is a great alternative option, and good for travelling too as so light. 

If you're not into the more shimmery shades then Collection also have an Eyes Uncovered Palette in Nude which includes six creamy matte nude shades. I think I will be buying this next!

Beauty: Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon Champagne Diamonds

Last December I paid my first visit to a Charlotte Tilbury counter and marvelled at all of the beautiful products. If I could only wear one make-up brand for the rest of my life it would be hers - everything she does is amazing. I bought her infamous Lip Cheat in Pillow Talk which I absolutely adore and will need to buy another soon.

I also was so close to buying Colour Chameleon Eyeshadow in Champagne Diamonds but somehow managed to lure myself away. My friends saw how much I wanted it and so for my birthday they bought me it - the best surprise. 

Charlotte Tilbury's Colour Chameleon eyeshadow pencils are designed to bring out your eyes' natural sparkle and to enhance them with clever lighting tricks that Charlotte has learnt over 20 years in the industry. They have a long-lasting and easy glide formula which applies super smoothly and stays in place for up to 10 hours - I can definitely vouch for this. 

There are two eyeshadow pencils available for your eye colour - one for day (of which Champagne Diamonds is) and one for night. They cost £19 and can be found on the Charlotte Tilbury website, along with tutorials on how to apply them and great swatches.

Home: Diptyque Baies Candle

Say hello to my first Diptyque candle. Isn't it divine? I have been wanting one for years and have finally got my hands on their Baies scent. Choosing the fragrance was a tricky one as I've heard good things about so many, but eventually decided on Baies thanks to Georgina convincing me that it's amazing and also because it seems like more of a spring/summer scent.

Baies is described by the brand as expressing 'the irresistible freshness of a bouquet of roses, sweetened with blackcurrant leaves'. It is such a beautiful fragrance - floral but fresh and one that fills the room completely.

I am loving my first foray into the world of Diptyque. And the best thing is that when I'm finished with the candle I'll have a beautiful brush pot ready and waiting!

The 190g Diptyque Baies candle costs £40 and can be found here.
