Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette

The old version is on the left and the new one is on the right.

Yes, I know another neutral palette? You are probably tired of seeing them, there is one in every brand, but if you are like me and only uses neutral shades, you will love this baby, it´s perfection!
Too Faced had this palette for a long time, but recently they replaced 3 shades, and I´m so happy they did! In my opinion it made it better. 
This was I think my first eyeshadow palette, and I have to admit I never used it that much, I don´t know why I just didn´t gravitated towards it very often, but when I saw they changed the shades and replaced it with 2 amazing browns, I knew I had to check it out. I loved it and obviously ended up buying it, I have been using it non stop, I´m obsessed! I have been using Nudie all over the lid, Cashmere bunny in the crease and Sexpresso in the outer v, I also love Honey Pot in the inner corners of my eye. I haven´t used the shimmer shades yet, but next time I go out for dinner I will definitely give those a go, they look beautiful. The colours are beautiful, the pigmentation is great, it´s a winner in my eyes.
In the second picture you can see the two palettes, the old and the new version side to side so you can compare them.
Do you own any of the palettes? Or do you have both? Which one do you prefer?

Style Crush: Dita Von Teese

As long as I can remember Dita has always been one of my style Icons, she is just amazing. She has the whole old hollywood glam style down to a T. 
She is just so Fab! Her style is amazing and so is her hair and makeup, she always looks flawless, not only for the red carpet but on her daily life as well! Dita is the queen of the feline flick and red lips!

Here are some of my favourite interviews of her. Enjoy!

Kiko Daring Game

Kiko always has the best limited edition collections, there is always so much choice and I always want to buy everything! This time I tamed myself and only bought 4 things, which you might think it´s still a lot but I wanted to buy a lot more.What a surprise! I really had to stop myself from buying the bronzer/highlighter duo and the blush duo, well I´m waiting until they go on sale, it was quite annoying to see the summer collection on sale, to such reduced prices, so this time I will wait, and I might buy them then. Now onto what I bought, the first thing it caught my eye, want to guess? If you have been reading this blog, you should know the answer. If you said the neutral palette, you guessed right! I know I don´t need another neutrals, browns eyeshadow palette, but as usual I couldn´t help myself! I stopped myself from buying it a few times but in the end I caved in! Shocker, I know! I choose The Queen of Hearts Eyeshadow Palette in 01 Essential Brown, the pigmentation of the eyeshadows is very good, much better then the summer collection. I already used the two bronzy, brown ones and I loved it, they have quite a warm tone, which I love. I have been enjoying using them.
Since we are on the topic of eyes I also bought the Mystery smokey eye pencil in 17 Heady Rock Brown, the colour is quite unique I don´t own anything like it, it´s a brown with a bit of black with gold shimmer, for me this is more evening appropriated, I think for during the day it might be a bit much.
Now onto lips, when I saw the Ace of Diamond lipstick in 27 Refined Burgundy in a post from one of my favourite beauty bloggers Viviannadoesmakeup and I knew I had to get it, its a beautiful berry colour, I also bought the matching lip liner ( the colour is the same).
Overall I´m very impressed with this collection, I literally wanted to buy everything! 
Kiko why do you keep doing this to me? Always bringing out gorgeous collections! Why?
