So I finally got my hands on the newest Sugarpill ( Heart Breaker palette! Everyone under the sun has this palette now, so you know all there is to know about it already. It's awesome. In this post I'll just shut up and show you some of the looks I've done with it.

Top row (L-R): Acidberry and Velocity.
Bottom row: (L-R): 2am and Mochi.

Eyeshadow: matte orange, pink & purple

I've used the Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 palette to death, but still only used my V1 palette sporadically. I felt the urge to go bright since the sun has started coming out and teasing us with spring weather. This is the look I wore to work on Friday. I really like this palette so I don't know why I havemn't used it more. I will, don't worry about that! Anyway, this look is all matte. No glitter or anything, just the lovely matte shadows from this palette on their own.

Nails: Models Own Purple Blue Beetle Juice

Another new nail polish for you today! This one is the much-hyped Purple Blue from the Models Own Beetle Juice collection. Yes, this was out months ago but it's new to me. I have to say the it's worth the hype. It's a fabulous colour (colours, really) and it sparkles and shifts like magic. It was also fairly cheap, if I remember correctly.

Eyeshadow: four looks from this week

Phew, what a busy week! I'm sorry I've neglected you guys, so here are four looks from the last week. I'm so hopeless I can't even remember all the makeup I used. I remember most of it, though. Sorry about the weird colours in the pictures. The auto correction in my software went haywire depending on the eyeshadow, so trust me, my skintone isn't snow white or red! Anyway, on to the looks. Most of these use goodies from my epic overseas haul.

Nails: Barry M Teal

So I'm a little behind on this, but the nail polish I wore last week was Barry M Teal. It's the first of my nail polishes that I got on my overseas trip and it's a stunner. As usual, the colour doesn't look quite right in these pictures. Teal is a metallic turquoise, so it's not quite as blue as it appears here. It's a fabulous colour and the formula was a dream. This is my first Barry M nail polish but it most certainly won't be my last.

Eyeshadow: burgundy sparkle

Today's look is bright and sparkly, but very simple. I used my new goodies once again (are you guys getting bored of this yet? Let me know) and not much else. I did this for work, so it had to be quick and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out.

It's a bright mixture of mattes and glitter. Win!

Eyeshadow: purple, purple & more purple!

I still have new goodies from my overseas trip that I haven't used! Today I've used another new item: my Too Faced eyeshadow in Midnight Mist, which is an amazing duochrome. In my pictures it looks blue, but it shifts purple and the sparkle in it can even look blue or pink, depending on the angle you look at it. It's an awesome colour and it's really nice quality, so I regret that I didn't pick up Poison Plum at the same time. I was telling myself I had too many purples, so I passed on it. I won't be listening to the voice of reason anymore!
