Earlier this year my gorgeous friend gifted me the most PERFECT Dior eyeshadow palette. The palette is the Dior 5 COULEURS COUTURE – SUMMER DUNE COLLECTION LIMITED EDITION Eyeshadow palette – couture eyes. The palette is extremely pigmented in luminous gold and copper shades. The shades are perfect for Autumn/Winter glam, while I also double the pink shade as a blusher. The set comes with a wide sponge applicator, a thin sponge applicator, a blending brush and an angled shading brush, which fit within the compact; ideal for topping up during the day. This will 100% be my go-to palette! Thank you Chloë! ❤

GUCCI LIP SHADE 25 – GOLDIE
Gucci Lip: shade 25 Goldie Red, Rouge à Lèvres Mat Lipstick has an incredibly striking colour; a total Hollywood starlet vibe. Gucci is one of my all-time favourite brands; their quality is continually on point. The gold packaging and Gucci engraved detailing in the lipstick are perfect features. Matte lipsticks regularly dry out, I adore a matte lip but hate when you reapply when out and your left with a cakey mess, but not ‘Gucci Lip’. This Gucci lipstick is a knockout; the smooth velvety texture stays fresh for hours; on my birthday I did a top up here and there after eating for an extra colour pop, but in general the colour stayed perfect for hours. Oh, and did I mention shade 25 Goldie on my skin tone is TO-DIE-FOR! Red lipstick has the complication of potentially washing out a complexion, this Gucci lip however creates a warm tone and looks fab. Gucci makes it super easy to pick a shade, on their website they show each lipstick on a range of skin-tones. GO GET ONE!

MASCARA L’OBSCUR BLACK
‘Gucci Eyes’ Mascara L’Obscur in black is a killer product. I am unbelievably fussy when it comes to mascaras, I usually HATE when I have to purchase a new mascara; I loathe when the product is clumped on the brush and weighs down my lashes. Previously my resolution was to use my old dried up mascara wand in the new product for a smaller amount. Until…I was gifted this Gucci mascara by my parents! My fresh mascara hatred has gone. The wand, the product, the packaging…everything is as you’d expect at Gucci; above and beyond. I adore Gucci for its premium quality and their Make-Up line does not disappoint. My lashes tend to stick together, however the Gucci mascara fans out my lashes coating them in deep, jet black and gives my lower lashes a smoky look. 5* The pink and gold packaging is beyond lavish; I keep it on display in my room, who could hide this gorgeous product in a make-up bag!
