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

Naked 3 vs Nude Eyes | Dupes

I know I have been completely awol for like the past month, which I completely apologise for. It has been hectic, my new site is on hold and it’s just been a mess. But, I’m back & I also still have 25% off Mikasa Beauty- not only there brushes but everything on their site!

If you are interested visit http://www.mikasabeauty.com and use the code Chloeantonia25 at the checkout!

So I think I may have found a dupe for the Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay. I know, everyone has a dupe for this, but I don’t think I’ve seen this one floating around anywhere.

The palette in question is actually from Primark and is from their PS collection. It is called nude eyes and I cannot remember where I got this, at all. I definitely didn’t buy it myself, but I found it & swatched it and thought this looks hella similar.

Best part about this? It’s only €5, guys in Ireland the Naked palettes go for about €45, you can save yourself so much money.

Nude Eyes has ten eye shadows, whereas Naked 3 has 12. Ive narrowed it down and the two shadows that seem to be missing are Limit and Burnout. Every other shadow is there from Dust to Blackheart & they are pretty bang on if you ask me. I will be doing swatches and comparisons over on Snapchat which is misschloetoni & also on Instagram which is the same handle!

So what do you think? Will you be rushing out to buy Nude Eyes? Leave me know in the comments below. If you enjoyed please follow my (m blog so you never miss a post. Xx

 

March Favourites | Favourites

I know we have not yet reached the end of March, however, I feel that any product I fall in love with between now and April probably would be better suited in my April favorites, so, I don’t feel as guilty about being a week early.

Honestly, this month I wasn’t loving as many products as I usually would. Money was short this month as I’m just your typical broke nineteen-year-old and I didn’t do much shopping. In fact, most of my favorites this month were products I had purchased months prior and completely forgot about, you know, as you do. So without further ado, here are my March Favourites.

Nyx Highlight & Contour Pro Palette.

I’ve had my eye on this palette for so, so long and I don’t actually know why it took me so long to get round to buying it, but of course, I’m behind in everything so naturally it took me longer than everyone else.

I adore this palette, particularly the shade ice queen and sculpt (if you’re a fellow pale skinned creature you’ll appreciate these shades) It’s not an overly powdery palette, in my opinion, the shades are all easy to blend, smooth and extremely pigmented.

The only thing that annoys me about this product is how flimsy the packaging feels. I’m never home on weekends so I get the train twice a week and I’ve never been able to leave home without placing the product back in its box because I’m so scared it’ll fall apart. But aside from that, I bloody love this. You can purchase the palette here.

Soap & Glory Love At First Blush.

This was a product that I recently discovered hiding in my makeup collection and have no memory buying, but it was a great find. My shade is in Pink, Pop & Pearl and it is the most beautiful thing I’ve ever laid eyes on. Soap & Glory win when it comes to packaging every time but the inside product is a shimmering dream. Of course, because it is so shimmery, it doubles as a highlight (unless you’re me because I like to glowwww) so it’s really a two in one type product.

As for how the product actually performs, it’s amazing, again, so blendable, buildable and not powdery at all. Not to mention how affordable it is. Soap & Glory are honestly my favourite drug store brand, You can purchase the blush here.

No7 Airbrush Away Primer

I’ve been on the lookout for a good, affordable primer for some time now & I think I’ve finally found what I’m looking for. This primer promises to fade the appearance of wrinkles and minimise pores, and although I can’t vouch on the wrinkle promise, I can definitely vouch on the minimising of pores. It fills in pores like nothing I’ve ever used before and is also really lightweight. The moisturising feel you get when applying is amazing and is probably one of my favourite things about the primer. The packaging is beautiful; simple and very classy, just what I love. You can buy the primer here and I would highly recommend doing so.

Naked 3 Palette

This is something I recently fell in love with all over again after it became lost in my collection and that is, of course, the very well known Naked 3 palette by Urban Decay. Naked 3 has always been my favourite naked palette & I’m so glad I’m using it again. The shades are buttery and soft and blend out amazing. In my opinion, it is well worth the price as the palette itself lasts a long time & with the right primer, the shadows last for ages as well. The shades are beautiful, anything pinky toned I love and the packaging is fabulous. I’m not going to go on any more about this because I’m sure everyone knows about the palette by now. You can purchase it here.

Essence Long Lasting Lipstick & Liner

The last item on my favourite list that I’ll be speaking about is Essence long lasting lipstick in number 13 and lip liner in 12 wish you were here.Essence is one of my absolute adorn drugstore brands. The pricing is fabulous, the packaging is super cute & the quality of the products is amazing. Their lipsticks have always been a love of mine so it came as no surprise to me that this one has become a staple in my makeup bag. The shade is beautiful cool toned pink that glides across your lips so easily. What I love most is how buttery and long lasting these lipsticks are. As for the liner, I’ve bought liners from the drugstore that are super scratchy, but that’s not the case with Essence liners. Again, they’re smooth and long lasting and the shade range is amazing. You can find the products here.
