Wonderful Dreams

L-R: Midnight Swim, Crystal Ball, Marron Glacé, Chantilly Lace
L-R: Hot Cocoa, Pretty Sunrise, Toasted Almond, Soft Cookie

Hi everyone,
Following my last post, I thought I'd share one of my Christmas presents with you as it's also a Sephora palette that my lovely brother got for me. It's called Wonderful Dreams and is a little eyeshadow palette, perfect for on the go makeup. The palette has eight different eyeshadows, both matte and shimmer, and light and dark. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it because the shades are so gorgeous. There's something for everyone in this palette, whether you're going for a smokey eye or just throwing on some matte shadow. 
I used Marron Glacé all over the lid and topped it with some Pretty Sunrise on the middle of the lid so that it catches the light nicely.
I hope you enjoy this little post on this adorable palette and I hope you all had a great Christmas!

Wishes Come True

Take A Selfie, Café Latte, Creamy Cashmere
Friday Night, Scented Candle, Pretty Pearls
Feeling Pretty, Nighttime Glow, Midnight Magnificence

Hi everyone,
So whilst out Christmas shopping I came across this adorable little palette in Sephora. It's by Sephora themselves and is a multi-functional palette called Wishes Come True. It had six eyeshadows, three matte and three shimmer, a gorgeous blush and two highlighters. The eyeshadows are stunning and super pigmented and the highlighters are amazing. The names are adorable and so is the packaging, you pull it apart to open it. 
It's the perfect little palette, especially for travelling and for when you're on the go. It would make such a great Christmas present too!
I used Creamy Cashmere all over the lid, Café Latte in the crease and then Scented Candle over the lid. I feel like Scented Candle would be the perfect Christmas day eyeshadow! I also used Feeling pretty and Midnight Magnificence on my cheeks.
Let me know if you have this palette and your thoughts on it!
