Ed Hardy Pallette Full Review and Swatches (Love kills slowly)

I know I know I said I would do this ages ago and I haven't had chance so here goes, SO I got this for Xmas as a little stocking filler type gift off my mum (I mean yeah I know technically it doesn't fit into a stocking but ykno like one of them presents that is just not a main one LOL) Anyway my mum got this from some fragrance shop as far as I know in the UK but on other blogs have seen it is apparently also sold in Ulta and someone else said they bought one from the Toronto IMATS. So it is the Ed hardy make up pallette I have the pink one which is 'Love kills slowly' there is also a blue geisha one which the lipglosses are more reds and the shadows more blue so more dramatic whilst this is more girly.

It ranges from £15-£25 on various sites in the UK, if you do want to purchase it have a google theres a few bits of info about it around.

So here is the pallette (click to enlarge)

 As you can see it has a fold out mirror with little lights (the mirror isn't messed up thats just the cellophane protective cover that I haven't removed yet btw) and then the actual make up which is like this -
So the top row are eyeshadows, (we will call them 1-6 from left to right).....1) is a pinky mauve 2) is a very pale pink 3) is a white 4) is a light grey 5) is a medium purpley-denim blue and 6) is a black, they are all extremeley shimmery and shade 2-3-4 are all pretty much similar when swatched (you will see in a sec) and then you have the big bronzer in the middle and at either side of that is 2 solid perfumes (as Ed Hardy do a fragrance line also, the perfumes are 'love kills slowly' the pallette name and 'love and luck' and then the bottom row is lipglosses (again they will be 1-6 left to right)....1) is a purple berry colour 2) is a simple red 3) is a baby pink 4) looks grey but is a clear shimmer 5) is a medium rose pink and lastly 6) is a deep fuschia.

Aswell as those you have a blush brush under the bronzer and a double ended eyeshadow and lip brush to the left and right, these are actually not bad as most pallettes are abit rubbish but at least these aren't hard or 'sponge' type applicators,

So anyway bearing in mind the above numbers for each of the rows I have done some swatches (sorry they aren't the best im photographing and writing this now and it's nearly 12.30am -

Click to enlarge so as you can see none of them are greatly pigmented apart from the black shadow (6) and the fuschia lip colour (also 6) The rest are nice don't get me wrong just abit more pigmentation would have been great.

Above are also the 2 solid perfumes, these are really handy to pop in your bag on nights out and they do smell realllllllllly nice, all the eyeshadows and lipcolours have a really nice fragrant smell to them too, if you're an Ed Hardy fan I would recommend getting this or if you're into sheer simple colours but if it's make up quality you are after then I would probabaly give it a miss,

I am happy with it as I just like it as a whole, I love pallettes and think this just looks nice on my dressing table and I do also think I will get some use out of it soon as the 3 eyeshadow shades that are similar are great highlight shades especially with been so shimmery, and I do love black shadows, plus that fuschia lip colour is perfect for me I love pink lips!

I have never smelt the actual Ed hardy fragrances but I have seen them about and as far as Ed Hardy goes I did used to love their bikinis and cut out swimsuits not to mention their funky hats and vests, I keep seeing quite a few Ed Hardy things pop up I saw some scented candles and what I think were inscence sticks maybe I should buy them and see how nice they are?! I also think I will do a FOTD post with this soon just to show it is wearable!

Fräulein3°8 Make Up Brushes REVIEW

So for a Christmas stocking filler present from my mum I got a 31 piece brush set from Fräulein3°8 I specifically chose this one as up until now I was a make up with fingers type of girl.....I have a few brushes from Boots no7 and some professional ones I got when I went to Beauty school which aren't branded but were fairly good and I have always preferred using my fingers, but as I have got into blogging and make-up more I have wanted to experiment with wilder styles and colours and dramatical looks so I thought well I will need some brushes, I was going to be Sigma or Crown brushes which I have heard amazing reviews about and also E.L.F ones have had some good reviews but then someone suggested these which were ULTRA cheap so I thought well I can try these out so what types of brushes I prefer and then buy similar brushes from different brands maybe as like I said I am a brush beginner! I got these from http://www.fraulein38.com they are these specific ones http://www.fraulein38.com/Product_Details.asp?ProductID=268   for £16.99 which I think is around $26 according to google LOL so don't blame my currecny coversion skills!

These are my pics you can go on the website links above for a full close up of each brush, etc (click all pics to enlarge)

That is the biggest brush on the front of the case, now don't get me wrong for a BEGINNER these brushes are a bargain, you couldn't really use them professionally or if you're trying to make them compete with better brushes such as MAC etc but for a beginner or to practise with they are pretty much good brushes, they do slightly shed at first and one of the eye ones broke off the handle but the other 30 seem pretty sturdy, the powder and blush brushes are abit fluffy I would like them more if they were 'heavier' if that makes sense as they apply blush and powder really lightly, and I will definatley be investing in more brushes soon but overall I am glad I bought these as for that price you can't go wrong and with 31 (or 30 as like i said one broke) you have a big range of different brush types to mess around with and to experiment with so thats another great point.

Fräulein3°8 seems like a good site as they do the pallettes (similar to the ebay/sedona lace/coastal scent ones which we can't easily get in the UK)

you can get the 120 pallette I reviewed here and a 21 piece brush set for like £25! or just the pallette alone for around £15 they also do other smaller and different pallettes which I might have a look at as I do have abit of a pallette obsession!

So anyway thats all I have to say really on these, if you have any specific questions do leave a comment, I might do some youtube videos soon using these brushes so you can see how they are when in use.

Happy new year all anyway this is my first post of 2011! Yay xoxox
