The Saharan Palette by Juvia’s Place | Review

1 2 3

This is my first time trying anything from the brand Juvia’s Place and honestly I’m blown away! The palette is $28 which is around £22, and with shipping and customs added on top it’s works out to be the average price of a mid-high end palette. It features 3 textures of shadow: matte (Sokoto, Jamila, Chad and Katsina), shimmer (Zoya, Iman and Lulu) and foiled (Wodaabe, Bororo, Kia, Sengegal and Fulu). All 3 of the textures are perfect but the foiled shadows wowed me the most.

The palette is pretty versatile, allowing you to create a wide range of looks from neutral to colourful. The palette doesn’t have a mirror inside which I don’t mind as I never use them and they bump up the cost of the palette.

The Saharan palette is $28 and available here. Also lots of beauty bloggers have discount codes for this brand so make sure you save some $!

LunatiCK Cosmetic Labs: Elvira Limited Edition Palette | Review

This is my first purchase from LunatiCK Cosmetic Labs. I’d been eyeing up the Elvira palette for a while and what finally convinced me to order it was a free lipstick with purchase!

I’ll be honest, I purchased this palette purely for the packaging, how awesome does it look? After swatching the colours I was pleasantly surprised by the pigmentation, especially for the black. Aunt Morgana and Macabre have a satin finish while Battitude, Superunleaded, Unpleasant Dreams and Bone are all matte. Superunleaded is marketed as a blush but will work great on the eyes as well.

This palette is a great introduction to the brand and I’ll defiantly be trying more of their products in the future.

Elvira Mistress Of The Dark Palette $35 and available here.

As I mentioned before, I got a free liquid lipstick with my order in the shade ritual red.

When first swatching the lipstick I was surprised to discover that it wasn’t matte as I’d assumed but an intense gloss. It has a nice minty sent to it and feels comfortable and hydrating on the lips. As the name suggests, the shade is a blood red.

Ritual Red is $12 and available here.

Bleach London Live Forever Shampoo and Conditioner | Review

03“BLEACH Live Forever Shampoo and Conditioner helps to fight the fade of colour by helping to prolong the effects of colourants. These nourishing shampoo and conditioners offer colour protection for all hair colours.”4

These shampoo and conditioners by Bleach London provide the perfect budget hair care routine for coloured hair. They help to prolong the colour of your hair while providing much needed hydration and nourishment. They both have a non-offensive scent to them, with the conditioner in particular smelling quite masculine, so would work perfectly for guys with coloured hair who care about such things. While the packaging looks great and appealing, I could have preferred a pump as the screw on lids can get a little fiddly in the shower. Other than that I think they’re both great products.

Bleach London Live Forever Shampoo and Conditioner are both available at Boots for £6 for 250ml here.

All Bleach London products are not tested on animals & are vegan friendly.
