January Favourites: First of 2016


The first monthly favourites of 2016 and I’m still writing 2015 in every time I have to write the date, it’ll take a couple of months for me to get that right. This is kind of a December and January favourites because I didn’t do one for last month as I was still recovering from Christmas and by the time I was going to do it it was a couple of weeks in and not long till this one. This is another big mix though I think there’s more beauty stuff in it this time than I often do.

I have been watching a few other things I’ll put in here but they’re not ones I have on DVD. I think after Christmas and watching Santa Claus the Movie I got into a bit of a Dudley Moore phase and ended up watching a lot of his movies so I’ll include one in here, Arthur is just so funny and one I’ve already seen twice this month. I also really liked Arthur 2, I know that’s probably not a popular opinion but it was harmless fun, not as good as the first but still pretty good. TV wise I’ve loved the new series of Endeavour, I love the Shaun Evans and Roger Allam combination and the characters and stories are great as a detective show and being a young Morse but without trying to be too much like him or trying to copy John Thaw.

Review: Sleek iLust Palette in The Gold Standard


I recently made an order from Boots for some presents and had quite a few Boots points built up. I decided to get this palette as I haven’t seen the Sleek iLust palettes before, I think it’s a new line and so far this is the only one I’ve seen. It has a mix of cream and powder eyeshadows and has less than the normal iDivine palettes. The six eyeshadows are all shimmer, with two of them being creams and the other four powders.

This palette costs £7.49 in Boots and on their own site and has six eyeshadows rather than the normal 12, I think the weights of each eyeshadow are similar as iDivines have 12 x 1.1g eyeshadows and this one says the weight is 6g which would make it 1g each. I can’t find an official weight for each one though so this could be wrong.
