Maybelline Master Shape brow pencil - review

I'm always on the look out for a good eyebrow pencil as my eyebrows naturally don't match my hair colour very well, it's pretty hard to find a colour that suits me. My eyebrows are quite ashy toned and I find a lot of hazel brow pencils to be very orange. However, this pencil in 'dark blonde' is a great colour for me! I think this would suit people with blonde hair, red hair and maybe even a light brunette. It looks incredibly natural even when going for a strong brow look. The formula is very waxy which means that it has great staying power, however, I do like to use a brow mascara over the top and sometimes powder to make sure it really stays put! 
The biggest negative to this product is how quickly it runs out! After every couple of uses I have to sharpen it and to get a good point takes a lot of product away. Within about a month it was all gone and I don't use it every day. It's pretty annoying but the pencil only costs £2.99 and I do love it, so it's something I can live with!
 Have you tried this eyebrow pencil or any other good ones? Let me know!

MUA 'Undress Me Too' palette

I picked this up from Superdrug a month or so ago after hearing some great reviews about it. This palette is a dupe for Urban Decay's Naked 2 palette, only at a fraction of the price! These eye shadows have amazing pigmentation, staying power and a lovely creamy powder consistency. The colours are very very near to the originals and very good quality.
The biggest negative I can think of is that it's easy to use up, a lot of product comes off in one use but I wouldn't expect much more from a £4 palette! Having said that, the one eye shadow shade that has hit pan is one that I use daily (so it's not that surprising!)
I would also recommend using an eye primer, if you have more oily eyelids as they will slip and slide because of the creaminess. This is a great day to night palette as it comes with 2 natural looking matte shades. The coverage is also quite build-able so you can wear a shimmery eye shadow with out it being too much during the day!
I will definitely continue to buy these and will definitely be buying the 'Undressed' palette (a copy of the first Naked palette) when I can!

Have you tried any of these palettes or good Naked palette dupes? Let me know! xx

How to: galaxy nails

Things you will need! (or similar colours anyway, you don't need all of these or you can use more.. it's totally up to you!) 

I'm a massive fan of the galaxy print that's trending everywhere at the moment and I love it on nails! So I though I'd do a quick blog post on how I achieve mine, to make them look like that--->

You don't need to use ALL these colours, but I think that it looks better when they're colourful as they look more galaxy like! The most important part of the look is the giltter and sparkly nail polish that you put on top. 

1. You want to start out with completely black nails, don't worry if it's a little messy.

2.You then want to put some of the nail varnish and dab patches of it on each nail. You then want to do the same thing but using different colours. Remember to only do patches and not cover the whole nail!
(You can see my sponge has old nail varnish on each corner, keep going round the sponge with different colours dabbing it on the nail!) 

This is roughly how it should look (it doesn't have to be this colour that you use to start off with, but the patches should be in different place/sizes etc on each nail.) 

3.This is how some of my nails looked once I had done a second colour . Gold is a good colour to use to make it have a starry feel to it!

4. This is how it looks once it's done, all that is left is to add the glittery nail varnish to look like stars. The colours I used over the black were blue, gold, red and purple. The purple is probably the most important colour to make it look more galaxy-like! I always do the purple last so that this is the most obvious colour in the end.
This is roughly how it should look! There is no right or wrong way to do this. Don't worry if around your nails looks a bit messy, it's hard to keep the sponge in the right place. Try and get a super sparkly nail varnish as this will always make it look more effective! 

That's basically all I do, maybe finish with a top coat for extra shine and tidy up around the nail so it looks more precise.
Again, don't worry if it looks messy or if it looks bad at first.. it won't look very interesting until you add the sparkly nail varnish!

Let me know if you tried this or if you have any questions,
 Have fun! :) xx
