Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Setting Spray

I love Urban Decay products and the All Nighter Setting Spray is one of my holy grails if I'm going out.
I paid $14 in Florida but you can get it on the Debenhams website for £9. It comes in a box and is oil and paraben free which is great for my combination skin. There is 30ml of product in the box which I believe is the smaller bottle but because I use this mainly for nights out it lasts me a good 5-6 months. 
The Urban Decay all nighter setting spray does what it says on the box. I hold the can out and spray my face 4 or 5 times and my make up stays on until the morning. I've accidentally slept with it on before (I know I'm bad!) and my make up has barely moved. I love this stuff when I'm on a night out because when it's hot and I'm dancing I know my make up is not going to smudge or run and it'll stay put.

This is already a repurchase and I will definitely be buying it again. Have you tried the Urban Decay setting spray?

Make Up For Ever HD Foundation

I bought this foundation hoping it would be a good one, I have my holy grail foundation and haven't found another foundation that's been on par with it so far. If you read my blog you'll know I picked this up in my Sephora haul and I was very excited to try it.
I was matched to the shade N115 which I must say is a really good match for my skin. It doesn't leave me looking orange in any way which is really important to me when I'm looking for a foundation. 
The bottle is glass and it has a pump which I do love about the Make Up For Ever foundation, it just makes it a lot easier to apply and I usually use two small pumps which covers my entire face. 
The foundation is a little runny but it is easy to apply with a foundation brush and it blends really well, I have worn the foundation all day with a primer and it does last until I get home (I haven't tried it without a primer yet so I don't know how long it would last if you don't wear primer). I actually really like this foundation and it's definitely a good runner up to my normal choice the Estée Lauder Double Wear, I love the finish the Make Up For Ever liquid gives and it looks pretty flawless. The coverage is medium so I would still use a concealer for any blemishes or imperfections but you can wear it without if you have really good skin. The only issue with this foundation is it can show up dry patches so if you have dry skin this is not for you, I only get dry patches on my nose so I just make sure to scrub my face in the morning and put on my moisturiser and I'm good to go. 

I would definitely buy the Make Up For Ever HD foundation again. Have you tried this foundation before?

My MAC Pro Palette 2

I already have a filled MAC Palette which you can see here so this is my second. I bought this in my MAC haul in Florida.
The MAC palette cost $10 and the insert was $2.50 which is quite a lot cheaper than in the UK. I also bought the eye shadows for $10 each which is about £6.50 so for all 15 it cost £97.50. I'm glad I bought the palette as I saved over £50 by getting it in the states.
The first three I picked were Swish, Da Bling and Cranberry.
Swish- bring pink with icy shimmer
Da Bling- pink with gold pearl
Cranberry- red-plum with pink shimmer
The next were Naked Lunch, Cork and Goldmine.
Naked Lunch- minimal pink with shimmer
Cork- muted golden brown
Goldmine- intense gold with shimmer
The next three I bought are Swimming, Plumage and Knight Divine.
Swimming- hi-shine sea green
Plumage- dusky peacock
Knight Divine- black with silver pearl
Next up is Shroom, Shale and Sketch.
Shroom- soft beige with shimmer
Shale- mauve-plum with subtle shimmer
Sketch- burgundy with red shimmer
And lastly I picked Idol Eyes, Satellite Dreams and Parfait Amour.
Idol Eyes- silvered violet with gold
Satellite Dreams- deep plum with pearl
Parfait Amour- blue-violet with shimmer

I use the first palette I bought so much that I couldn't resist getting another one especially as I saved so much money on it. I did have a few of the shades I wanted in mind from reviews I've seen on other blogs but I swatched loads when I was at the MAC shop. I am excited to start using all of the new eyeshadows I've got.

Have you tried any of the MAC eyeshadows?

NARS Orgasm Blusher

This is another buy from my Sephora Haul. I don't have any NARS products and I've seen such good reviews about this blusher that it seemed like the obvious thing to pick.
I picked this up in Sephora for $30 when you include tax it comes to about £20 in the UK so it saved me around £2.50. All of the NARS products come in a matte black box with the logo on the front. 
The NARS Orgasm Blusher at 4.8g will last me ages.
The blusher comes in a matte black rubber like packaging which unfortunately gets marked really easily so I can see it looking quite messy after a while. When you open it you see the amazing colour of the blush, there is a mirror on the other side which is handy if you're on the go.
It is described by NARS as a peachy pink with golden shimmer which is spot on from the swatches above. I have been using Orgasm for the last week and it is my new favourite blusher, it is easy to apply and blend and I love the way it looks on my skin as it leaves such a subtle glow on your cheeks.

NARS Orgasm Blusher is definitely my go to blush for the moment and when I run out I will 100% be repurchasing.

Have you tried the NARS blusher?

Earring Obsession

I am terrible with earrings I lose them a lot! I tend to buy ones I really like and then I misplace them or I have one but don't know where the other one is. I ended up finding a load of earrings I wanted in Florida.
First earrings I found were these superhero ones in Hot Topic for $10.50 which have batman, superman, green lantern and flash in the set.
I loved the little moons with a stone in this set from Target. I liked the owls and stars aswell and for $12.99 it wasn't too bad.
I love the seaside theme of these earrings the anchors and the sea horses are so cute that I couldn't help but pick these up. Again these are from Hot Topic and were $8.50.
This set from Walmart came to $7.88 which was so cheap! I liked the skulls from this set and the little black and white round dots on the top right. I have the hoops to my sister as I'm not a fan of them at all.
This set for $4.88 from Walmart was so good and I love all of the earrings in the pack aswell. Those little pandas are my favourite they are just plain cute! 
These earrings were from Aeropostale for $15 I liked the triangles and squares as they will look good in my second or third holes I got two packs of these because they were on a buy 1 get 2 free offer and as I said I lose them a lot anyway.
This set I picked up from Aeropostale aswell the elephants and the peace signs are sweet, they were also part of the buy 1 get 2 free offer. The 3 packs from Aeropostale cost $5 each with the offer.

I love the earrings I picked up and will wear them all the time. Hopefully I won't lose these ones so quickly!
