Cute Product Alert! Etude House X KitKat Collaboration!

I LOVE KOREAN MAKE-UP/SKINCARE and when I saw Etude House's latest collaboration, my jaw dropped. They have collaborated with none other than KitKat and this screams cuteness. Two new eyeshadow palettes that are based on the ever popular chocolate snack.

The eyeshadow palettes are very cutely called - Play Color Eyes in 'Original' and 'Strawberry Tiramisu'
The special set consists of Play Color Eyes Mini, soft velvety Kit Kat pouch and sweet KitKat original chocolate.

The Original palette contains beautiful shades, from a stunning champagne to a bright cherry red, which matches the colour of the original KitKat wrapper. The Strawberry Tiramisu palette (my favourite out of the two) has a range of colours from a shimmery caramel to the cutest blush pink.
When it comes to K beauty brands, the overall cuteness look is vital and well, Etude House have never seemed to fail any collaboration or any new product launch from the original range. I personally love how they have added 'sweet' touches, from adding a velvet pouch to even including some real KitKat! An absolute win!

I just really wish we had other flavours available in the UK, the pink strawberry palette is inspired by the many flavours that are available in Asia. If you are in the U.S you are so lucky because it's available to you guys on the Etude House website. I really hope Etude House opens a store in UK because it's so hard to source genuine products online and it's expensive too!!

Best way to stay up-to date with this cute brand is by following them on Instagram *drools*

Let me know if you are planning on buying this! I would love to see swatches or even better, where I can find it in the UK *fingers crossed*

What do you think about this cute collaboration?

Topshop Jewellery Wishlist

From bottom left clockwise: Beaded Drop Earrings,£16.50, Freedom Finer Eye Hoops £12.50, Zebra Print Bangle £10, Enamel Crystal Ring £7.50 and Real Shell Bangle Pack £15.

It sure has been a while since I last made a wishlist and this time I wanted to feature some super cute accessories from Topshop. I hardly go in Topshop and I was amazed whilst browsing online, they really have upped their game, especially in the accessories department and I would much rather buy my jewellery from here and Accessorize since it goes with me really well. I know the metals won't change colour and the material seems sturdy so here are my top five picks from the latest collection!

Think 80s, pastel colours and geometric shapes. When I first saw these it was instant attraction! Must of been the colour pink... These are so eye catching and so unique. Perfect for day or night and it would definitely finish an outfit perfectly.

As much as I love my statement jewellery, it sure is nice to wear some minimalistic pieces I am so happy that they have brought out a Freedom Finer range, this range only contains minimal pieces that are simple but still scream class. I have been wearing and loving mini hoops and huggies lately so these would make the perfect next addition to my collection. The moon is my favourite out of the trio.

Animal print is so in now and even though I steer clear from bold colours and prints, I have tried to add it into my wardrobe and accessories this season, even if it may be just a pair of flats or a pack of beaded bracelets. I am really enjoying the comeback of animal print and this monochrome zebra print bangle is just so adorable!

I just love enamel jewellery. I don't really know why but I end up collecting enamel stud earrings to enamel bangles. I love how Topshop have designed this ring. The added diamonds really breaks up the black and makes it a perfect everyday piece. Such a bargain too!

How elegant. The opalescent shell in these bangles really make this a star choice! Bangle packs are great because it contains an assortment of different styles, sizes and textures all in one and you could wear this for a wedding or even to the office. So versatile and a must to keep.

What are you liking from my wishlist?

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask Review

A hug in tube, for the skin. Literally! I heart Origins skin care simply because it actually works and this is perfect for when your skin needs some TLC and even if you have the most sensitive or the most driest skin type, this will transform your skin gradually and make it feel oh so comforted and hydrated from within.

What I also love about Origins is that they are so generous with their samples, the other day whilst browsing the GinZing range, the very chatty and friendly advisor handed me a mini Drink Up Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask which happens to be one of their bestsellers! I tried it two nights in a row and let's just say I have already added it to my to buy skincare list.

What it is?
Put dry skin to bed with this ultra-rich, hydrating overnight mask. It's rich texture instantly and intensely quenches dehydrated skin and helps prevent future moisture loss. This mask is perfect for those who are seeking intense moisturization & hydration or for frequent travellers.

What is it formulated to do?
Avocado and Apricot Kernel Oils deeply and instantly quench compromised moisture reserves and help build a reservoir for tomorrow. While Japanese Seaweed helps repair skin's barrier to prevent future dehydration and signs of premature ageing. Skin awakens comfortable, refreshed, supple.

This fresh and fruity scented face mask truly is a lovely product to have in your collection and you won't regret it either. The mask is very creamy and despite being so creamy, it isn't heavy on the skin. It has no weight. It feels air light and isn't greasy in any way. This product is packed with so many skin loving ingredients and at the very moment of application you can just feel the mask working in it's magical way, no exaggeration but I really do and what is great about overnight skin treatments is that while you rest, the product gets to work. As much as I love my weekly face masks, you know, the ones you keep on for 15-25 minutes and then rinse off, I have now started looking into other skincare that you can keep on overnight as this saves so much time in the long run. Korean skincare especially, have got some overnight eye/lip masks that I really want to try but for now it's great to see that brands are starting to create products that can help us in saving time and not cut back on the amazing quality and ingredients. 

I really recommend trying this out, if you are still unsure then you can always try a sample just like I did. The sample contains enough face mask to apply for atleast 3-4 nights so you can see how well it performs. Products like this really makes you enjoy skin care just a little bit more and believe me, I look forward to using this at night! Well done Origins for creating something that works so well!
