I've ended up with lots of new products, so I wanted to share some of my Faves!
Ok first of all.. Both August and September have been big months in Beauty with the recent launch of Fenty Beauty (which is taking the world by storm by the way!), Huda Beauty's new Desert Dusk palette, Anastasia Beverly Hills Subculture palette, KKW Beauty just to name a few!
My KKW Beauty Creme and Powder kits arrived only couple of weeks ago (see my review HERE) and I managed to get my hands on the Subculture palette while on my USA holiday.

1. SUBCULTURE PALETTE BY ANASTASIA BEVERLY HILLS
My favourite palette of all time is the (M.R) Modern Renaissance pallet so I had high expectations of its younger sister palette "Subculture". I was getting ready to leave the USA and Subculture wasn't going to be launched till 2 days later.. however the lovely manager at Ulta Beauty in Phoenix allowed me pre-purchase one after feeling sorry for myself and listening to my long lecture about how makeup is so expensive in New Zealand!
The colours in this palette are an absolute eye candy as if all of Heaven was placed in to one single palette. From the romantic spring look to the sultry smokey eyes, this palette has it all. I'll be honest though, the formula of the matte shadows seem to be different from the M.R palette.. still very much pigmented but 'chalky' and has a lot of fall out.
So, I guess it may not be as great as the M.R palette, but when you have colour combinations as good as this, you will always find a way to make it work.

2. TARTE RAINFOREST OF THE SEA - RADIANCE DROPS
This beauty right here will bring life back to dull skin and hydrate dry skin at the same time.
It's the perfect product to help prepare your skin before applying your foundation for a radiant and illuminating finish. I usually apply this straight after primer and allow to dry for a minute or so before applying foundation.
WHAT IT IS; A non-greasy, multitasking elixir with brightening, micro-glistening pearls & antioxidant complex to deliver a healthy, mermaid glow anywhere on your face & body

3. CARLI BYBEL DELUXE PALETTE BY BH COSMETICS
Right now, this is my go-to palette! The colour combinations in this deluxe palette are perfect for Bridal makeup, everyday wear and soft glam for those spring/ summer parties.
A mix of highly pigmented mattes and buttery shimmer shadows, highlights and bronzers all for the amazing price of $22.95 (USD) you cannot go wrong!

4. SPOTLIGHT HIGHLIGHT PALETTE BY BH COSMETICS
Let there be light!
For a long time I've been an Anastasia Beverly Hills Glow Kit Fan.... until I met Spotlight!
This formula is SUPER pigmented and BUTTERY! My favourite Highlight palette!
You can create a variety of flattering highlighting effects with this 6 Color Highlight Palette, a mix of shimmering shades that accent your features beautifully. Shades range from pearly ivory to copper and bronze and flatter all skin tones. They are also multi-use for the eyes and body.
