w7 "In The Buff" eyeshadow palette review

Hello guys.
So i have been looking forward to review this w7 palette, that aqua pr kindly sent me,
If your like me and love urban decay "naked palettes" but dont love the price all that much, then this palette is a great dupe of the Urban decay naked 2 palette for a more reasonable price.

This lovely tin is full of 12 eyeshadows with a mixture of matte shades and shimmery shades - great for any look morning/day/night.
They are so so easy to apply, with the lovely soft brush you get in the tin or with your fingers (if you dont like using brushes) the matte shades can be slightly "chalky" if you apply too much (eyeshadow may fall on your face) but if you apply the right amount then its fine however the shimmery shades are perfect and without too much full out/chalkiness.
I love using the colour's 'Buff' & 'Wave', by blending them in slightly to get a slight Smokey eye with eyeliner to complete my 'everyday cat eye look'
They last for …

w7 makeup calendar review so far.. w7 have just bought out the new "countdown to Christmas makeup advent calendar" which i think is a super great idea for people like me who love makeup, or feel like your slightly too old now for chocolate advents.. So i got mine from Tk maxx which cost £19.99, but it says its original price was £49.95 ever if you buy it on the w7 web-site it is now only £19.95
which is a great price for a makeup calendar!
Iam into comic/illustrated images, so this calendar is pretty much perfect for me!

So this is what i have opened so far:
Day one: Eyeshadow "burnt plum"
Day two: Nail polish "Red dazzle"
Day three: Lipstick "Perfect pink"
Day four: Nail polish "Silver dazzle"
Day five: Nail polish "Pink dazzle"

So far the items i have opened, Iam loving! especially the Eyeshadow in burnt plum, it is such a pretty brow colour perfect for winter looks! with a slight sparkle to it, to complete the Christmassy…

£10 Makeup Challenge Essence cosmetics are to express who you are with style, confidence and fun! They say NO to animal testing and Yes to quality which is always a plus!
with a huge range of great makeup at super affordable prices..

Essence asked me to do a £10 makeup challenge, knowing how affordable the makeup is, I knew that i would be-able to accept this challenge, so these are the items i picked for a total of £9.51!!!
They are:
Get Big Lashes Volume Mascara- £2.21
Lipstick 44 Almost Famous - £1.99
Liquid Ink Eyeliner - £2.79
Silky Touch Blush Life's A Cherry - £2.44

These makeup items are great!
I picked reds/dark pinks because I seem to always wear red/dark pink all of the time, but also i thought it is a great combination for Autumn/Winter..
The Get big lashes volume mascara is great for those who want natural but long looking lashes with no clumps, it is also super affordable, for the price of a average mascara you could get a few of these and still look good!

Chroma Stationery Chroma Stationery makes great quality notebooks at affordable prices that everyone will love with 20 different amazing colours to choose from,  which reflects on peoples personality..
They also offer a free embossing service that you can choose exactly what you want on your notebook from your chosen font, size,  either it be gold or silver, they then gift wrap the notebook.. they think that everyone deserves a lovely package to open (which i agree also)

The lovely people at Chroma Stationery sent me this amazing notebook, that i could keep all of my Beauty and Fashion blogging notes/ideas in,
I have the colour "Zoe" (lovely deep red) which i love, mainly because when it comes to choosing a lipstick I would pretty much always go for a deep red lipstick, why wouldn't you love this colour?
and you wouldn't loose it!
I also have "Itsgemmaaarrr" embossed in silver on the notebook, obviously my blog and instagram name is "i…

BlanX teeth whitening review BlanX is a intensive whitening treatment for your teeth(no peroxide).
It has micro-crystals, it binds enamel of your teeth during regular brushing, creating a barrier that blocks the causes of yellowing.. Its ingredient lasts all day and then is activated by the light which then destroys dirt molecules on your teeth and then naturally whitens teeth... (super cool)

I dont have yellow teeth, but they went as white as i wanted them to be, so BlanX super kindly sent me two different treatments they were:
.BlanX white shock 50ml + LED accelerator with actilux (£7.50 in boots)
.BlanX white shock Treatment 30ml + LED bite with actilux (£15.99 in boots)

The BlanX white shock 50ml with LED accelerator with actilux stays on your teeth throughout the day it then reacts  to everyday light to whiten your teeth naturally... this contains a LED accelerator which then boosts whitening process/action of the actilux..
I feel that this is super handy if your going to stay ov…

They can also be packaged, wrapped and personalised!
They make cute items such as choker necklaces, rings, retro hair scrunches, bracelets, cute rings ect.. They are also super friendly!

The super lovely Roxanne from Charms and Chains had sent me this really lovely surprise package..
I had looked at all of the lovely items from necklaces to rings online but could not decide what to choose as everything they have is so so perfect and so Roxanne sent me this super beautiful heart shaped ring.
It is a large heart shaped outline ring which is in silver but you can also buy it in gold!
The little red bag she placed the ring in is super cute and i will be keeping this, the quality of the ring itself is really great, sturdy, non breakable and for only £4.00!
I was pretty shocked to see that it was only £4.00,
Iam now in-love with this ring and will probably be w…
