Kat Von D Pastel Goth | First Impressions

Finally, I managed to get my hands on the gorgeous, limited edition Pastel Goth palette by Kat Von D. The excitement that coursed through my veins as I laid eyes on it in the store were something else. Let me set the scene; so there I was,  walking through Debenhams all ready to stock up Urban Decays eyeshadow primer when I saw it. The tears were real. Now some of you may think I’m overreacting but, I’ve been waiting for this palette for a very long time.

So naturally, I bought it. I was buzzing as I held it in my hands, walked to the cashier and handed over the 40 euro. All the way home I had to stop myself from ripping open the packaging and swatching all the beautiful shadows inside, But I contained myself, and here we are. So ladies and gents here is my First Impression of Kat Von D Pastel Goth.

Before we begin, I will not be inserting swatch pictures in this post. Instead, I will be doing so on my Snapchat & Instagram stories, both of which are @misschloetoni so be sure to give those a follow!

First off, the packaging of this palette may be one of the most gorgeous things I’ve ever seen in my whole life. The box is the exact same design as the actual palette and the design itself is pretty simple. Pastel Goth is written in funky lettering, and the words are a mix match of some of the colours in the palette.

When you open up the palette you are met with a small mirror, with the classic Kat Von D logo and of course the shadows. The pan size of each is relatively big, especially considering the colours aren’t something you would wear every day so you wouldn’t be reaching for it 24/7. My boyfriend and I are in agreement, however, that I should make it a part of my everyday makeup routine.

The shadows are everything you would want in a shadow, soft, buttery, not too powdery and of course; pigmented! I can not wait to dive in and start using it!

Of course, I will do a full review once I use the palette for a while and expect lot’s of makeup tutorials in the coming weeks. Unfortunetly, it is sold out on Kat Von D website but it is available at Debenhams and can be purchased here

Essence My Must Haves | First Impressions

Guys I found the best find in Primark or Penny’s if you live in Ireland like me. I’m not sure how long these shadows have been on the market but it is my first time coming across them.

The shadows are called my must haves and they are from the brand Essence. What’s cool about them is there are two different palettes that you can fill with these shadows.

I chose the 4 palette to start but there was also an 8pan. The four pan and all the shadows are only €1.90! How amazing is that?

So I’ve decided to share the four colours I chose, and I chose these for a special reason so who knows, maybe you’ll get to see a look revolving around them!

The first shade is tiffunny which is a gorgeous silver eyeshadow, it’s just full of glitter! When the time comes that I get to sweep this across my eye, it shall be a great day!

Next up is raspberry frosting and again it’s full of glitter. The only thing that makes it better? It’s pink glitter!

Purple clouds is up next and as the name suggests, it’s purple. Although it’s still a shimmer shadow it is definitely the most matte like out of the the four I picked up. Still just as excited to use it though!

Lastly is have a n’ice day. It is This beautiful icy blue shade. And it was actually my boyfriend who picked it out, must say he has good taste because judging by appearance only, I think this may be my favourite.

Of course I still need to test the products and I promise a review will come once I do. If you enjoyed this post be sure to follow my blog so you never miss a post!

Primark PS Skin Care | First Impressions

Today I will be speaking about something that I’ve been quite curious about for a while now and that’s Primark’s skin care range. I have very sensitive skin when it comes to skin care and although I love finding cheap makeup brands, I can never be togo sure when it comes to skin care.

In saying that, Primark had to have the cutest packaging on their products (I’m a sucker for cute packaging) so of course, I had to pick it up. And although my skin may resemble something similar to a tomato in a few days, I will be trying them out, because, well I must like the pain of inflamed skin. Jokes, kind of.

So the first product I picked up was the Face The Day moisturizer. It says that it’s oil free, has cucumber and witch hazel & is suitable for normal/combination skin types. I have tried this out, and although it left my face feeling super smooth and not at all oily, it is very scented which sometimes irritates my skin, but the scent is gorgeous so I’m not complaining too much. Also, can we all please appreciate how summery this packaging looks?

Next, I picked up the Love To Glow face mask. I am not one to judge at all when it comes to cheaper products- most of holy grails are from the drugstore, but as soon as I took the tub out of the box I knew we weren’t going to get along well. Even my mom said I was going to break out badly. Something about the colour unsettled me, or maybe it was something else about the product but I just felt really nervous putting it on my face.

Again, it smells amazing, but I don’t know how well it will go down with my skin. Honestly, I was really surprised at how nice my skin felt afterward. It was very nice and I’m excited to use it again.

I also picked up the Lovely and Bubbly foaming facial wash. I’ve used this twice now and I already know I will not be able to use it,unfortunately. It has really irritated my skin, which is a shame because it is actually a good face wash. It does a great job at taking off your makeup, especially when paired with the next product I’ll be speaking about.

This face wash is very strong in scent, even more than the rest and I really think that is probably why my skin has reacted so bad. So, if you do have a problem with scented products I’d stay away from this but if not, I’d go for it because it is nice despite the burning face and all.

The last product I will be speaking about and my personal favourite, the Easy On The Eyes makeup remover. I love, absolutely love finding an inexpensive makeup remover that is good. And I’ve only used this twice and I can already tell I will be repurchasing.

I was astonished at how well it broke down my eye makeup. It was fab, really. It is very oily compared to some other eye makeup removers, but just give your eyes a quick pat with a paper towel and you’re fine. Out of all the products, I would recommend this the most, but I will be doing a full review on everything (except the facial wash) in a few weeks after I have properly tested the products.
