Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam palette - first impressions, swatches and a comparison with the Modern Renaissance palette

If you have been following me and my blog for a while you should know that I used to be obsessed with eyeshadow palettes, there wasn't a month when I didn't get a new one or two, LOL! But in the last few months my obsession has definitely decreased because, let's be honest, how many eyeshadows does one person need? I have way too many and there's not a chance I will finish a full palette anytime soon, so I have been trying to be more sensible with my makeup purchases. But every now and then comes a new palette that steals my heart immediately and I just have to have it. That's what happened with the new Anastasia Beverly Hills Soft Glam palette which was released about 2 weeks ago. I was not tempted by her two previous palettes, Prism and Subculture, partly because of the many bad reviews they were getting but also because of the shades selection as I knew I wouldn't use them often enough to justify the purchases.
But it was a completely different story with the Soft Glam palette as it looked like my perfect everyday palette (I don't know about you but I love when palette has matte white/cream and black shades), and it would complement the Modern Renaissance palette perfectly which is one of my favourite palettes (check my three eye looks created with it).

Dr Dennis Gross the Glow Getter skincare set -review

I had wanted to try Dr Dennis Gross skincare for a long time but considering their high price point and the fact that I have so many products already in my stash I wasn't exactly rushing to do so. But when I saw the Glow Getter set in the post Christmas sale on Cult Beauty I immediately put it in my virtual basket and checked out without hesitation. The set is not available anymore but all the products are in their regular sizes. I've used up all the daily peels sachets and I'm finishing off the serum and the cream and I thought it was the time to share with you my experience with these products and whether they are worth the high price tag they come with.

5 things I've been loving /January edition

I've decided to re-introduce favourites posts on my blog, I will try to keep them regular, hopefully monthly, as long as I have 5 things to share with you which I've loved. I will be mixing beauty with lifestyle and fashion just to spice things up a bit, I hope you'll find it interesting!
I've been feeling less motivated then ever to do my blogging so while I don't aspire to become a lifestyle or/fashion blogger I just want to add something else to my blog to make me feel more inspired.

Updating my Winter skincare routine with Embryolisse products

Winter is a though time for our skin, the indoor heating, cold weather, winds and frosty temperatures can make it really dry, dehydrated and irritated. I used to battle those skin issues every year but this time round I found products that have been helping my skin to stay in its best condition despite the cold weather. I try to keep my skincare routine quite simple and stick to the same set of products for at least 4 weeks to let them work their magic and my skin get accustomed to new formulas. In the weeks leading up to Christmas I was testing loads of new products and changing my skincare routines too quickly which resulted in my skin not being happy and paying off with breakouts and congestion so I have learnt my lesson :)
By the end of last year I was kindly sent these three Embryolisse products to try and once the festive season was over and my diet consisted again of something else then just cakes, cheese and wine, haha!, I implemented these into my skincare routine and have had them in my rotation since.
Despite the cold weather and heaters working non stop in our house my skin hasn't been dehydrated, it's soft and plumped which is certainly down to some greatly hydrating and nourishing products, the Embryolisse offerings being some of them (also Merumaya tonners and Pixi Rose Caviar Essence have been working wonders).
