All That Glitters


Hey Guys,
Lately I have found myself purchasing a lot (this is an understatement) of beauty products and most of them seem to possess glitter of some sort. Maybe it's this time of year and the anticipation and excitement that comes with christmas? I thought I would share my top sparkly make-up picks with you guys!


This product was hyped a lot when it came out, and so when my friend informed me it was a dupe for the infamous NARS highlighter, I knew I had to try it. At the price of only £3.00 it was definitely worth the buy. The product is super pigmented and creates a beautiful glow on the high points of your cheeks, regardless of whether you have cheek bones or just a marshmallow face like myself. There are a few different shades to choose and I would definitely love to also try the rose shade in the collection.  If you want to find an affordable, long lasting highlighter then this is definitely for you.

Barry M Nail Paint in Catwalk Queen & Rock Star

I tried to buy these two gorgeous nail colours from ASOS but unfortunately they got smashed on the way to me.. what a sticky, glittery situation for the poor postman! My dismay was short lived when I saw these in Superdrug on the 3 for 2 offer I quickly nabbed them. These colours are just so christmas season inspired, well for me anyway- I don't do greens and reds. Rock Star adds a bit of drama to a typical black nail, whilst Catwalk Queen is a gorgeous turquoise with a silver shimmer throughout - I feel like a mermaid when I wear this!


Whenever I come across a Pound store, I always make sure that I go in to check if they have any discounted make-up for me to grab. This Maybelline duo eyeshadow caught my eye as I know from previous experience that their eyeshadow's are super pigmented and have great longevity and I wasn't disappointed. I love using the white colour in the corner of my eye to create a little shimmery wide eyed effect. The glitter in the pigment does create a bit of fall out so definitely save your concealer for afterwards!

Have you guys found any new beauty products that you're loving lately?

  9. I definitely think we need more glitter and sparkle this time of year! The highlighter looks lovely and what a bargain! I have been using the same highlighter for years, a liquid one, so I think will be a good option to branch into the powder highlighting world! Thanks for the recommendations :) xx

I'm not into glittery stuff, but I've been eyeing glittery nail polish lately. I'm actually thinking of buying one this week. I'd like to try the Catwalk Queen because I'm curious about the mermaid feel you mentioned. :)

  33. Ahh, for some reason as soon as it becomes festive in the slightest, I am suddenly adorned head to toe in glitter :') I like to consider myself a walking reminder of the fact it is nearly Christmas and I am allowed to do this.
    I'm definitely going to see if I can buy that highlighter, I just bought a guerlain one and bleh I don't like it, especially for the expensive price, you can barely see it and it makes no visible difference.
