Bloody hell, I swear this was entirely accidental! I don’t generally tend to follow the trends (except maybe my beloved Rimmel 107 ♥) but my recent purchases seem to be absolutely perfect for spring. What have I become?!
I bought the W7 palette in TK Maxx a couple of weeks ago. It was only £5.99 (RRP £14) so I snapped it up. They had loads of other W7 palettes but the colours were quite similar to other palettes I own already, so I picked up In The Nude and I’m so glad I did as the colours are absolutely gorgeous!
There are a great mix of matte and shimmers in the palette and a lot of pinky tones which I’ve never appreciated before. I’m really not a pink kinda girl.
The slightly lighter colours definitely worked better with an eyeshadow primer (I used Makeup Revolution I ♥ Makeup Eye Primer – Wow) but they still look really pretty 🙂
I also accidentally bought a lipstick (although technically it was free as I used some of the Boots gift card I was given when I left my last job, so that’s okay, right?) This is the Rimmel Kate lipstick in 08 and it’s such a beautiful pink colour. I really want to wear more lipsticks this year and I’m loving the Rimmel range for their colours and durability. I know I’ll be wearing this a lot over the next few months 🙂
Do you have a go-to spring look or do you keep your makeup the same all year round? Let me know in the comments section below! 🙂 x
I’m obsessed with Rimmel Kate Moss lipsticks and 03 is my favourite but I also love 08 – it’s quite similar to MACs brave! That palette is gorgeous too! I’ve never seen this one before, but it looks like NAKED 3!
Oh I’ve not tried the 03 yet, I’ll have to try it out next time I’m in town! I think W7 palettes are known as great dupes for UD palettes 🙂 x
I really love this blog – you’ve given me inspiration to experiment with my makeup, and I’ve been loving the things I’ve tried and am building confidence to try new things, like lipstick! I never thought I’d suit it, but I love this spring colour. I purchased it today to give it a whirl – its still only going to be worn around the house till I get used to it, but the colour is beautiful! Thank you 😀
I’m so glad you like the blog and the lipstick! Your comment really made me smile, thank you! Xx
The w7 products are really good dupes for Urban Decay and a fraction of the price!
Definitely! I have one UD palette which I won in a competition 😄 but if they were out of the boxes in not sure I could say which one was which!
They both look like lovely products, I have the W7 palette in Lightly toasted and it’s lovely they are great palettes aren’t they? the lipstick is a gorgeous shade and they’ll look lovely together xxx

I’m really pleased with it, the colours are lovely and the pigmentation is great!
I can’t stop wearing the lipstick, it’s amazing! Xxx
Love the spring colours in this! I can’t wait to start purchasing and wearing some spring things 🙂 Need to work out what will and won’t go with my new hair colour in my current collection first and then go on a spending spree!
Oh I’ve never thought about makeup and hair colour and if it goes or not! Good excuse to buy more 😁
I’ve never had too either haha my friend mentioned it on her youtube channel and it made me think lol
Your purchases really are perfect for spring, and they are making me so excited! I love the palette and the lipstick colours is gorgeous! Great post 🙂 xx
Thank you! I’m actually wearing both today, the sun is shining and there are daffodils everywhere! It definitely feels like spring 😁😁
