A Great Palette For Those Glitter Lovers *

Hey lovelies,

I hope you’re all well. I’m finally done with all my exams for this semester and now have a few days off until my 4th semester starts next Monday. But before I get into today’s post I just wanted to thank you all for reaching 500 followers over here on WordPress. I know this is such a small number compared to other bloggers out there but it really means the world to me because when I first started my blog I only started it with the intention of having a little place where I could just write and I never ever believed that people would actually follow me and come back to read more. Every little comment or like means so much to me and always puts a huge smile on my face, so seriously a huge thank you to all of you who read my little blog! Okay, before this gets even cheesier let’s get into today’s post, shall we?


When the lovely people over from the Born Pretty Store contacted me a little while ago about whether I wanted to try out some more of their products, I was so excited because I’ve loved all of their products I’ve tried before. As I was looking through their website one item, which immediately caught my eye was this lovely little palette.


I absolutely adore the design of it and it contains 12 glittery shades. If you’ve read my blog before you know how much I love my shimmery eyeshadows, so a palettes consisting of only glitter eyeshadows sounds pretty damn amazing to me. Now as I’ve just mentioned the palette consists of 12 lovely shades and it offers you a nice range of shades as well. You get a light blue, a mint green (one of my favorite colors), a few different shades of pink and some stunning brown and bronzed shades (my favorites) as well as 3 gorgeous silver/grey shades.

I was really impressed with how pigmented the shadow were and one aspect I really love is that they are glittery but they aren’t too glittery, so that you can only wear them for special occasion. They just have the perfect amount of glitter in them, which makes them wearable for the day as well as for a sparkly night out look.


My favorite shades are without a doubt the four shades at the very right because I’m a sucker for bronzy shades. They compliment my blue eyes really well and I’m more of a neutrals type of girl when it comes to eyeshadow most of them time. However, I also love the light blue and the mint green shade this palette includes. I can totally see myself wearing these in Spring a lot. I, personally, don’t wear pink eyeshadow too much but if you love pink these are some seriously stunning colors and I will try to incorporate them into my Spring and Summer eye make up this year for a bit of a girly touch.


In general I think this would be a great palette for everyone who has a weakness for glitter. These are some gorgeous glitter shades that you can either use for a bit of a more glammed up neutral look or a you can go all out and create a sparkly night out look with the silver colors. And you can always add in a touch of color with some of the other shades.

If you like this palettes or are interested in the products the Born Pretty Store offers you can head on over to their website here.  I also have a little discount code for you if you decided to place an order, which is WEEG10.

I hope you enjoyed reading today’s post!




Love for Glitter – The Born Pretty Store Trio Eyeshadow Palette *

When the lovely people from the Born Pretty Store contacted me on whether I wanted to review some of their products I have to admit I was quite excited. I’ve heard of the brand before as they are quite known for their nail art supplies. I totally suck when it comes to doing my nails but the Born Pretty Store also offers a wide variety of makeup, jewelry and other accessories, so there’s definitely something for everyone.

While browsing their website I came across this glittery eyeshadow trio and it immediately reminded me of Christmas and the holidays. I’m such a sucker for glittery things, so it’s only naturally I opted for this one.



This little palette contains a black shade, a beautiful shimmery bronzed shade (quite possibly my favorite) and a lovely very glittery silver shade. All of the shades contain golden shimmer particles for a sparkling effect, which I think is just perfect for the holiday season or New Year’s Eve. December is just the perfect time to go all out when it comes to glitter and sparkles, don’t you think?


Now, I really love the texture as its so soft and silky, which makes it so easy to apply! When it comes to eyeshadows my biggest pet peeve is when they are too chalky but these are quite creamy.  All three shadows are quite pigmented, though the bronzed shade is definitely the most pigmented.



I think this is just the perfect little trio for everyone that loves a bit of a sparkle. The black and silver shades are perfect for creating a glittery smokey eye and the bronzed shade is so beautiful and perfect if you want more of a softer and warm approach maybe. First I was a little afraid that the glitter particles might move around, because I’ve had some bad experiences with glitter eyeshadow before but luckily these stay put and don’t move around. After all I only want my eyes to make a sparkling statement and not my entire face to look like a disco ball, right?

I can definitely see myself getting a lot of use out of these once December rolls around but then again you can never go wrong with a little bit of glitter, so basically this will always come in handy for a night out or a special occasion that could use a bit of a sparkle.
