Another great plus to the Chocolate bar palettes, and this goes for both of them, is that there is everything you need to create a whole eye look in each palette. You have lid shades, crease shades, outer V colours and highlight colours in both mattes and shimmery shades so there is something for everyone to like. The Semi Sweet palette is a truly beautiful palette, and I love using it, and will be using this for many months to come.
Well, that is my review and I hope you have enjoyed reading it. Have you got any of these palettes, please feel free to let me know what you think of them in the comments below. I hope you all have a wonderful day, and I will talk to you all again very soon.

This Avon shampoo I bought a while ago, and it had just been sitting in my drawer not being used. It did leave my hair feeling very nice and clean, but I would not say it did anything out of the ordinary to my hair, so I probably would not repurchase this as there are other shampoos which I much prefer.
Now this next product was a total fail for me, and that is because I just could not get any product out of the botttle at all. It is a miniature shower gel from L'Occitane. I normally love L'Occitane products as they just feel so luxurious but this product just would not come out of the bottle no matter how hard I squeezed the bottle. I guess my hands are pretty weak from having arthritis in them, but even still!!!
I hope you have enjoyed this post, and look forward to reading your comments on how you are doing using up products in your collection.
Till next time,

For concealer, I have been going back to my oldie but a goodie, in the Maybelline Age eraser. This just goes on and on forever and is such an amazing price for a product that is good quality and lasts for years. I use it to cover my dark circles and then set it with a powder to make sure it doesnt crease, and it lasts all day. A really good product.
For me Maybelline are just an amazing brand and I love their products. Non beauty favourites this month have been drinking a nice green tea, I'm really enjoying them at the moment, especially the ones with lemon in, and reading my kindle. It has been so cold here lately, and so curling up in front of the fire, with my kindle and a cup of green tea has really helped me to feel warmer and cosy.
I hope you have enjoyed this post, and let me know in the comments what your favourites have been this month.
Love and Hugs

I think that when thinking about your makeup, it really needs to coordinate with your dress, so everything flows together and creates those gorgeous wedding day photos. If you have chosen a very simple style of gown then I feel that you could perhaps go a little more bold perhaps with your lipstick for instance, wearing a bright pink lipstick if you have chosen pink flowers for your bouquet, e,g Maybelline's Fuschia Flash lipstick.
This is a pinky red shade from Barry M called Watermelon and this colour would look great on either fingertips and especially on the toes, if you were wearing cute little peep toe shoes.
Your face does not want to be covered in heavy, cakey looking foundation, I think that a woman's skin on her wedding day should look verynatural, and so the perfect solution would be a BB Cream or a tinted moisturiser.
gorgeous dresses they have there. They literally have hundreds and hundreds and I am sure there will be something for everybody. They are truly amazing dresses.
Till next time,

Then I popped to the Laura Mercier counter as everyone raves about the Plumberry lip liner and I really wanted to add this to my lip liner collection.
I already own two other Bobbi Brown shades which I have had for a couple of years, and they are regularly in my everyday make up as they are just staples which add to any make up look. They are Bone and Taupre, but the two I purchased Saturday are much warmer in town and will look great worn either as an all over lid colour or just to warm up the crease.Then it was off to Nars. I will say that the staff here are much like the staff at Mac and are too busy talking to offer you any really good customer service, but I persevered and stood waiting for 10 minutes and then walked up to the assistant and broke into her conversation and asked if she could help me. Normally I dont do that, but I was determined that I really wanted the Nars Frivolous lip crayon, and eventually she served me. I will say through the transaction the girl was very nice and pleasant to speak to, so that kind of made up for being ignored for the first 10 minutes at the counter. This lip crayon is gorgeous.
I hope you have enjoyed this post, and let me know in the comments what you have been hauling lately.
