Makeup look with Zoeva, DB Cosmetics and L.A Girl

Recently I've been on a bit of an online shopping spree. Blame it on Instagram. First it was the DB Cosmetics Contour Kit (which I blogged about HERE), then Zoeva Cosmetics eyeshadow palettes kept popping up on my feed. And the icing on the cake was the L.A. Girl Matte Flat Finish Pigment Glosses which had me reaching for my wallet. I've been extremely happy with my purchases, and have been reaching for them almost daily. And lo and behold, here's a look I came up with.

Pretty much my standard look really, fresh skin, neutral eyes and bright lips.

DB Cosmetics Contour Kit Review & Swatches

Yes, I have a lot of contour palettes. And yes, I know contouring is no longer cool - it's all about strobing now (and seriously, can we just call it highlighting already?), but this was one contour palette I couldn't pass on and not just because it was less than $10!.

I first spotted the DB Cosmetics Contour Kit ($9.95!) on my Instagram feed. It wasn't available in stores yet, but you could do a pre-order online and of course I did just that. When it arrived, my only regret was not ordering 2 of them as I think these will sell out quickly.

Bobbi Brown Telluride Eye Palette Review

You know I love a good neutral palette, in fact I probably have far too many and I doubt I'll use any of them up in the foreseeable future. But when I was offered a PR sample of this Bobbi Brown palette  I couldn't say no, because you know, neutral.

If you follow me on Instagram then you probably already know this... but I wanted to take this opportunity to formally introduce my little girl, born 2 weeks ago!

Two weeks old and already has the duck face down pat!

The 2 products helping me fake a good night's sleep

Before we get started on the product review, there are 2 things you need to know.
a. I have an almost 3yr old son that still comes into our bed at night.
b. I'm currently 9.5 months pregnant (aaaghhhhh!!!!)

Those two things combined mean that I have been sleeping pretty badly lately! The 3yr old snuggles to me so tightly (burrows into me more like it), that if I'm not careful I'll fall off the edge of the bed. And the pregnancy bit means I get up a thousand times a night for bathroom breaks. So to say that a good night's sleep hasn't been happening for me lately is an understatement. And it showed. On my skin, under my eyes and just all over.

I was this close to going to the shops and buying my favourite Maybelline concealer which helped me fake good sleep after I'd just had baby #1. But then after rummaging through my stash I came across these 2 products I was sent a while back from Physician's Formula and thought I'd give them a go. And what do you know, they're great!
