Useful websites for all things beauty!

I know there are a lot of different websites that sell cosmetics, fragrances and all things beauty, but these are just a few of the websites that I personally have tried and liked.
These websites not only sell cosmetics and fragrances, but they also sell brushes and make up bags etc.
I wanted to share this with you because you might not know about these particular websites and I urge anyone to check them out.

The first website is probably my absolute favorite if I want to buy cosmetics I can`t get hold of where I live or if i`m on the lookout for items that have been discontinued.

The website I am talking about is called AllCosmeticsWholesale, they have a long list of different brands. Everything from high end brands like Mac, Bobbi Brown, Urban Decay etc to drugstore brands such as Loreal, Revlon and Maybelline.

I had a good experience ordering from this website because this is a US based website, but they ship internationally and it didn`t take more than 1 week before my order arrived (in Scandinavia). Usually it takes up to 3 weeks.

I know a lot of people are Mac(oholics) and they sell Mac products that are both discontinued or just rare and hard to get hold of.

When my order arrived, it was all wrapped in bubble wrap, so nothing was damaged! :)

Right now they are having a holiday sale!!

I absolutely love this website and want everyone to know about it!:)

The second website I wanted to share with you is RockTheCatwalk. They have a slightly smaller selection of brands to choose from and a lot of the products lack pictures, but these are the only negative things I could find with this website.

They don`t sell any discontinues Mac items, but they do sell a few Mac Pro products!

There is not much more I can say about this website. Other than the negative things I already mentioned, I find it to be a very good choice if I would want to order cosmetics over the internet.

This is also a US based website which ship internationally.
My order was also packaged well, wrapped in bubble wrap and the parcel arrived withing a week.

The third and last website I wanted you to know about is FragranceDirect.
This is a UK based website. They sell fragrances, cosmetics, hair products, bath and body products etc.

The best thing about this website is that almost every item they sell is discounted!
They have more than 100 different brands to choose from both high end to very affordable brands.

The negative things about this website is that (this only applies to international orders) it takes about 2 weeks for the order to arrive.
They charge £1.99 for each item you decide to buy, no matter the cost of the item.

Other than that, I am impressed with how the website is run. They let you know if the item is for male, or female use. And if the product is damaged, unpacked or fully packed.
There is more information about this on the website.

Please let me know if you decide to visit or try out any of these websites. I would like to know about your experience and your opinion.

Bye for now!

28 Neutral Palette

The Coastal Scents 28 Neutral Palette is probably old news to most make up lovers. But I thought I would say a few words either way to those of you who might not know a lot about the palette or if you just didn`t have anything better to do.

This palette contains a mixture of matte and shimmery colors.

You can easily concoct everything from a neutral everyday look for school or work to a smokey night-time look for going out in the evening.

All the colors are very pigmented and very easy to blend. They feel almost like silk which makes me want to use the palette all the time.

If you buy it from Coastal Scent`s website, (i`m sure you can find a similar palette on Ebay too) it will cost you $18.95 which is a pretty good price for this product. It`s dead cheap actually!
As a bonus, they usually have a discount code you can use to get a percentage off of the total cost.

Of course this product won`t be the best quality in the world, but it is a very good product to use for someone who are just getting started doing make-up because you get a lot of different eye shadows for just a few bucks.

If you are thinking about buying this palette, but you`re not quite convinced yet, there are lots and lots of reviews on the Coastal Scents website and even on Youtube.

The 88 warm palette is also a good palette. One of my favorite make-up items in fact. It can also be bought at the same place, here!
With the warm palette you get slightly more choice with color and quantity.

You could make beautiful looks with this palette, like this fall/autumn inspired smokey eye look for instance:)

There is only one negative thing I have to say that goes for both of these palettes. And that is that I find the shimmery colors to be a bit too fragile and they seem to crumble easily when dipping the brush in the eye shadows.

But to end this on a god note, I love the colors and the quality and feel of the product is surprisingly good for the cost of it!

Bye for now!

Fall/Autumn Inspired Smokey Eye Look

Remove Formatting from selection
I love colors of fall/autumn!
I love the orange, plum, red, brown and yellow colors that you can see outside at this time of the year.

I decided to do a make up look inspired by the colors of fall/autumn because I obviously love the type of colors and they look good on me if I do say so myself.

Lately I have been really in to plum colors, so I decided to do the look with some of my favorite colors, plum, brown and orange.
