Eye Of Horus Maat Dark Temptress Palette

The classic smokey eye, who loves it? I was lucky to receive this trio of eyeshadows " Maat Dark Temptress" from the brand Eye Of Horus.

From left to right the shades are as: Amarna Light is a highlight shade with a slight shimmer, with Ankh Odyssey and Dark Dynasty being a matt finish.
 
This is a great trio to have in your bag for on the go looks. The colours combined work well together to achieve a smokey eye. The colours aren't as pigmented as I would have liked with the highlight being the least pigmented out of the three, but they just need a little extra build up on the lid. The consistency is a little chalky but when applied keeps put without creasing.
 
 
The packaging is basic but with a lovely double ended brush and handy mirror, it also has a magnetic closing flap which is handy so it doesn't get everywhere in your bag,.

D For Danger MAC Lipstick

I know another MAC lipstick, but who could resist!! As you may know or not know I am obsessed with MAC Lipsticks, they have to be my favourite brand of lipstick with a huge range of stunning colours.

D For Danger is a lipstick that makes me just sigh with joy, what a beauty with its deep red colour in a matte finish, perfect for autumn/winter. It has such a vampire feel to it I adore it, teamed with a smokey eye would be perfect for Halloween or for a dolled up Christmas look. The matte finish means it lasts a good part of the day, it can remain on the lips after lunch and a cup of tea! The lipstick is one of the new shades released within the matte range but this one stands out a mile, if you are a fan of MAC lipsticks especially the darker shades for winter then this one is perfect for you.

The Market Trio includes three scents perfect for Autumn, Caramel Pear, Berry Bramble and Harvest Spice. This trio is perfect for Autumn, such warm spicy yet sweet scents that are good enough to eat! They burn for a long time with a strong but not overpowering perfume that lingers in the room. My favourite has to be caramel pear, I want to eat it!

Next I tried Natures Light in Mulberry, a candle that sounds like you have a log fire in the room! it crackles when lit and has a warm Christmas scent which makes me feel Christmas is round the corner!
 
Finally Snowberries, a fresh and fruity scent that made me feel like having a mulled wine! I need to get some mulled going! It is one of PartyLites most popular scent.

Botanicals Body Balm Review

I am currently sat in my living room with the sun shining through, yes you heard me sun in the winter times! Along with that is a scent of beautiful botanical oils from the gorgeous Botanicals Body Balm in Orange Blossom.
 
I was sent this little glass tub of glory. I did not know what to expect from a body balm as have never used one before. Botanicals is an award winning skincare from the UK boasting a natural organic range which isn't tested on animals and is vegan friendly.

This 89g tub is made of glass with a plastic black lid giving it that high end feel. The product inside surprised me with its grainy soft like silk white consistency that quickly turns into an oily non sticky consistency when applied to the skin. It truly has become my favourite body product! It moisturises the body beautifully and the moisture lasts all day. The scent is stunning filling the room with an Italian orangery and spa feeling, with the scent not leaving the skin for the rest of the day. 

The body balm ingredients include Shea Butter, Patchouli oil, Apricot Kernels, Sweet Orange Essential Oil and Bergamot.
