Bursting with deep pink blushes in light and dark shades alongside berry blues and purples with a mixture of nude shades, each shade included in this palette makes it perfect for evening with the pretty shimmer laced throughout each. 

Eye and Cheek Palette: See You At Midnight  c/o

This palette is newly launched alongside "Dancing Til Dusk", This palette has a nice mixture of warm and cool tones, which I love for winter and they also compliment my hair colour and pale complexion nicely. The palette contains two blushes; Antique and Pomegranate, plus four eye shadows; Vintage Romance i-DivineEach shade is very pigmented with a mixture of matte and shimmers, perfect for blending together! Perfect colour combination for all skin tones and I find the wear longevity is reasonable but they definitely last longer if you use a primer beforehand. The packaging is very sleek and comes in a matte black case, making this the perfect travel companion. 

Each one of these shades are from Sleeks bestselling i-divine and blush range making this palette the perfect first time buys if you're looking to try different shades from the range. I find the texture really smooth and easy to blend and I also like to use the "Antique" blush as a bronzer and find it contours really well with a slight hint of shimmer. The case also comes with two brushes and a large mirror for easy access on the go, I always find these palettes great for fitting into quick morning make-up routines as everything's in one place.

What's your thoughts on this palette? Have you tried sleek?

New Look are currently holding a competition where you have to select your perfect party pieces from the New Look Festive Party Collection to be in with the chance of winning one of five prizes. Below I have selected not one but three different outfits I would wear to special events/parties over the Christmas period and into the New Year.

My ideal festive party would have to be somewhere exotic with plates of good hearty food, such as homemade Christmas themed cookies and gingerbread men. There would be a three course meal including a vast range of starters, mains and deserts to choose from with warm mulled wine and fresh mints for after dinner. Picking three outfits, I would wear the lace jumpsuit and black sparkle clutch with the sophisticated box design and thin chain strap, as the box clutch adds extra sparkle to the outfit to mingle in and snack on lot's of canapes and cocktails before the main meal. 

A quick change for the main meal and I just love this premium lace teal number with pretty semi sheer lace detailing to the center panel and sparkly sequin finish to the fabric, making this the perfect festive piece. After eating it's time to party and I really like the eye catching details and embellishment on this strappy diamond playsuit with the delicate strappy design and bodycon fit. With a deep V-neck and minimal accessories, this piece is perfect for hitting the dance floor and would look incredible with the sparkle ankle strap heels to complete the outfit. 

These sparkle heels are perfect for Christmas with the minimal design and they look great with almost everything in the classic black design and cute ankle strap. To keep warm the sateen crepe blazer is the perfect cover up, and would look great with the pieces I have selected above and I actually have a long line blazer very similar to this from ASOS, so this cropped version would make a nice party piece without it completely over shadowing the main dress/playsuit. 

*To be in with the chance of winning one of five prizes then head on over to The New Look Blog for more entry details and prizes to be won.

What's your favourite party piece?

The Library of Fragrance is a completely new brand in the UK with a unique perfume concept that really makes them stand out with scents that replicate everyday smells and occurrences.

Perfume: Pina Colada c/o

A couple of months back I was involved in the research for The Library of Fragrance and as a thank you, I was sent this gorgeous fragrance which I picked from the website. There was so much scents to choose from well over 100 in total, it was near impossible to pick a favourite, but I do love sweet scents so went with Pina Colada

I love the smell of coconut in the summer and any time of the year in fact, as it's so comforting and subtle, but this perfume really mixes it up with the sweetness of pineappleThis smells true to the real thing with hints of rum coming through for a beautiful scent that lasts hours once applied. I just love spraying this over my clothes and bed sheets for a nice sweet, refreshing scent that really uplifts your mood for the day. 

It's not sickly and very mellow, you can pick these up from Boots or the main website for much more variety. I think these would make excellent personalised gifts this Christmas with the huge selection of scents that can be tailored to everyone! You get so much choice and the scents are very rare too, making it a perfect gift if you know someone who loves fragrance or a specific smell. I definitely have my eye on a few other scents from the collection such as chocolate chip cookie, espresso, gingerbread and lemon meringue, they also smell really natural and not at all artificial.

Have you tried these perfumes yet?

These little balms are coming in super handy during winter and I recently received a Papaya Gold Paw Paw Balm and loved using it and the super thick consistency makes this perfect for hydrating dry hands. After posting this on my instagram another similar brand to the Papaya Gold line got in touch called Dr.PAWPAW and these balms are very similar in consistency and results.

This clear balm is part of Dr.PAWPAWS original collection, these balms are made here in the UK compared to the Papaya Gold which originates from Australia and the concept of these balms! Each balm from Dr.Paw Paw is fragrance free and packed full of natural ingredients, and they also have antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, making this the perfect handbag essential at this time of year for combating bacteria and keeping your hands super soft. You would never have thought this little balm would last ages but it really does! You only need the smallest amount because the texture is very thick and spreads evenly once applied to the skin to create a generous barrier on the skin to protect and hydrate

I mainly use this on my lips and it dries instantly, without leaving a sticky residue, which is perfect if you have long hair. You can use this for so much different things, for treating dry skin, rashes, nailsdry cracked lips, cuticles, dry hair and as a make-up primerThis really is the perfect multitasker and perfect for carrying in your bag with the sleek packaging and small tube, making it easy for travel and the price is also good for the amount of product you get as you don't need much. You can pick these up from the main website, and high end retailers such as Harvey Nichols, Urban Outfitters and Lloyds Pharmacy.

Keep an eye out for my tinted balm(s) review next week from the Dr.Paw Paw collection, perfect accessories for a natural daytime make-up look.

Have you tried these balms? What's your thoughts?
