Jouer Palette

I know I've literally just posted my ultimate eye products professing that the original Naked palette is the be all and end all of palettes but there's a new palette in my collection which is making me rethink it all. 

This was a complete impulse buy. As soon as I opened the 'just arrived' email from Beauty Bay I was on the site buying this. I was after an orange shadow and I wasn't blown away by the 35O palette. That has since moved on to another home and I've been reaching for this one almost daily.

I wish I'd done the blogger thing and taken pictures before diving in but I was just too excited to get these shades on my face. The palette consists of 7 matte shades and 5 shimmer shades and i'm obsessed with them all.

Clearly thinking I'm BNTM....But seriously, loving having orange eyes!

Every one of the shades is amazingly pigmented. Each shade compliments the rest of the palette meaning you can create dozens of different looks. I'm not that talented myself but I'm working on it. As a complete amateur I love how blendable these are, especially as I get zero fallout.

The size of the mirror is another plus for me....They just keep on coming! You could (and I regularly do) use this as the mirror to do your face on the go. This is the first Jouer product I've tried but, given how obsessed I am, I now want to try everything they have to offer. 

What are your favourite Jouer products?

March Favourites

Reading πŸ‘“  
I Am Not A Serial Killer by Dan Wells. I love this! 
The book is written from the perspective of John Cleaver who works in the family mortuary and has an obsession with serial killers. He is a sociopath who has a list of rules he follows to appear outwardly 'normal' but when a serial killer turns up in town he faces an inner battle. Should he let his inner 'monster' out? It might save people but would he be able to control himself? I'm rubbish at describing things. If that sounded a bit naff, it really isn't'
I think the story is brilliantly written. It's a must read for any fans of mystery fiction. Goodreads

Watching πŸ“Ί

WAGS...What can I even say about this? It's my new guilty pleasure show. Like, some of the drama is totally cringe but I'm running out of episodes to watch. I hate catching up with shows and having to wait between episodes.

Will anyone be able to do a favourites this month without mentioning Beauty and the Beast?? I was a little late to the party but it was so beautifully shot. Also, my family left the cinema with a collective love of Luke Evans

Beauty πŸ’„ πŸ’…
On my cheeks I've fallen in love with a blush from Emite Makeup. I'm not going to lie, I'd never heard of them until I received this in a Glossybox. It is also a shade that I would never reach for in a shop but I'm obsessed! This is very pigmented so I do have to use a light hand but I'm loving how natural it looks.

Listening πŸŽΆ 
I finally got around to watching Moana and I'm obsessed. It's pretty much all I've listened to on Spotify this month.  That being said, I'm totally behind on all of my youtube subscriptions from March because everytime I open the site I end up in a Backstreet Boys spiral. I was never the biggest fan, they flew under my radar a little bit but I'm more than making up for that this month. Can they please just come and do some shows over here??!

Loving ♡ 
Liverpool! I don't think I've been to Liverpool since 2014 but I honestly think it's the most beautiful city and I can't wait to go back.

Thanks to (unintentionally) saving up all of my holidays at work, I've had most of this month off. I do enjoy my job but it's been nice to have a breather and I honestly think I'm going to struggle next week when I have to go back.
