New Beauty Season products from Urban Decay and InStyler!


Oh Autumn is here readers! It’s raining outside, the weather is kind of muggy, and it’s not cold or crisp enough for us to be wearing our new season wardrobe. But there are some amazing new beauty products out there for you to try out, and experiment with a new look. And today I have two new gems for you!

Let’s start with the make up, shall we?

Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics

Urban Decay Naked 2 Basics

The Naked palettes are so famous now, as being the leaders in eye colours, from matte to shimmer; as well as being incredibly long lasting and easy to apply. I love them, you might have guessed. Available right now, is the new Naked 2 Basics palette; a series of matte colours in cool tones (all of which have undertones of Taupe). There are five new colours in the palette; including one new shimmer called Skimp. This colour is such a good highlighter. The balance of shades is great and will work with every skin tone. As I am pale, I really like Cover and Undone which create a natural smokey eye without looking too heavy. The palette is also a great size for carrying around in your make up bag, and travelling (essential in my life to have things that are travel-friendly!). To go with this launch is a fab new double ended brush as well. One on side, you have the fuller brush for smooth application, and on the other a very handy smudger! The hairs are synthetic so bye bye bacteria. You can get both products in House of Fraser, or Debenhams!

Palette, €29; Brush, €20. You can read more reviews of Urban Decay Products on the blog too!

InStyler rotating iron

With my new short hair do, I am dying to experiment with new styling tools. So when the InStyler landed on my desk this week, it was just perfect timing. Basically, it straightens, curls, adds volume and shines! The rotating head is what makes it very special, which allows hair to be styling smoothly through precision bristles. I found that my hair had bounce which lasted, and was incredibly soft to the touch. I’ve just used it to smoothen my hair and turn the ends inwards, but I can only imagine how it can be used on mid to long length hair to curl too. I’m going to play around with this over the next week and blog with some pics of what hair styles I have achieved! The InStyler is available at and has an RRP of €120.
