90s kids, rejoice!

It's time to add little nostalgia to your beauty routine with the launch of this Nickelodeon inspired eyeshadow palette.

Designed to look like an old-skool VHS tape, the packaging is decorated with all your favourite characters – Angelica Pickles, Ren and Stimpy, Cat-Dog, the whole gang.

The palette contains a mixture of both matte and sparkling shades ranging from subtle nudes to vibrant blues.

Each shade has been named using a classic Nick quote, such as the green ‘Rawr’, inspired by Rugrats’ Reptar and the blue ‘Football Head', inspired by Hey Arnold!.

Oh, and of course, it wouldn't be a Nickelodeon palette if it didn't feature the channel's signature outrageous orange shade.

The retro palette is currently on offer for $13.52 (€10.84), down from $16.90 (€13.55), but according to online reports, the product, which is currently being sold at Hot Topic stores in the US, is sold out everywhere.

Woe is us.

However, if you want to be the first to know when its back in stock, you can keep an eye out here.

Get excited, beauty lovers!

Urban Decay's Naked Palette is a cult makeup item, and the nude selection and its sequels the Naked 2 and Naked 3 have become makeup bag must-haves. 

 

 Now, Urban Decay is releasing a brand new Naked Palette, and this one is hotter than the rest. 

The Naked Heat palette is coming for those of us who live for a warm, cranberry eye. 

The palette has a few traditional (albeit warm-toned) nudes in the mix, but it is unique to the rest thanks to the reds, pinks, peaches and cranberry shades it features on its spectrum. 

The 12 'amber-hued neutrals' are ideal for a sexy summer eye look, and we can even see some of the mid tones working as gorgeous blushers. 

The amazing new palette launches officially on June 30, so we'll be saving our pennies up for the end of the month!

Harry Potter lovers have been teased and tormented by the revelation of a Harry Potter palette by Storybook Cosmetics.

The brand that brought us Game of Thrones makeup and Beauty and the Beast makeup brushes has been working on the Wizardry and Witchcraft palette for months, and it's finally almost ready for release.

The gorgeous, rich shades were finalised a few weeks back, but the spell book packaging needed to be perfected. 

The creators have done an amazing job, and the book palette wouldn't look out of place in Hermione's hands at the Hogwarts library.

The shades themselves are divine, from taupes and neutrals to deep emerald and navy.

The new eye shadows sit alongside wand themed makeup brushes and quill eyeliner on Storybook Cosmetics' website, so getting a magical makeup look is literally a click away. 

The palette will be released in the next few days, so keep your eyes on the prize because this one is sure to fly off the (Hogwarts) shelves.

Gone are the days of the classic dark, black smokey eye ladies. 

It's a new dawn, it's a new day (oh, the irony), and sunset eyes are what the world of makeup is about right now.

Thanks to the gorgeous ladies at Refinery 29, we have a simple step-by-step list on how to achieve this gorgeous look. 

 

Sunset is my favorite color. Rainbow is second. #BeautyLoveDynasty

"Using a fluffy blending brush, dust a matte rose shadow into your crease to define your eyes, and follow up with just a touch of dark purple shadow in your crease. Make sure to blend it to avoid harsh lines" they explain. 

 

. . . People "What are you thinking about?" . . . . Me "Star Wars" Product details in previous post

The next step explains how to achieve that fabulous, sunny glow: "Using a dense shadow brush, press matte orange shadow all over your lid and top it with a layer of sparkly gold shadow. Grab the matte rose colour you used in the beginning and sweep it along your lower lash line."

And finally, to finish off this sunset look, simply "draw matte burgundy eyeshadow along your upper and lower lash lines, winging it out slightly on your upper lash line."

BOOM: you've got yourself a beautiful sunset smokey eye.

Nothing is more satisfying than seeing two of your favourite things coming together!

In this case, Sephora (makeup gods) have collaborated with Disney to create a beautiful Disney-inspired collection. 

Now, before I go any further, it is important to note that this is not a new collection… which means it is currently ON SALE (hence my excitement).

Anywho, the collaboration is made up of some of the loveliest makeup sets I have ever laid eyes on (still love you, Urban Decay).

The crown jewel of this masterpiece is definitely the eyeshadow palette, that comes in a GORGEOUS black and gold clutch-like bag.

The set contains 16 vibrant colours, all with individual names such as "Be My Bow" and "Miss Minnie".

Just incase you didn't know, I LOVE beauty trends, and usually the more outrageous they are the better.

HOWEVER, on occasion I find a trend that is perfect for almost everyone, and this is one of those occasions.

"Pink eye makeup" is trending on Instagram at the moment, and it is NOT what you think…

We warn you that while this look is fabulous when it's done right, you need to avoid looking like you actually have a case of pink eye (that is not a cute look).

In my own "expert" opinion, I suggest using more rose gold coloured shadows, rather than bright neon pinks (this is not the 1980s).

Dark raspberry colours look gorgeous on people with darker skin tones, while light blush pinks can look great on fairer people. 

Try it out, you won't be disappointed.

These days it feels like we can’t open our laptops without coming across another must have beauty product.

And while you might think the good people at Urban Decay have already outdone themselves this year with the launches of their shimmering highlighter and Vice Ltd Reloaded palettes, we’re here to tell you that there’s still plenty of good stuff on the way.

Hot on the heels of the much raved about Naked Ultimate Basics collection, the celebrated beauty brand is about to launch an absolute rainbow of a palette which – while not being for the faint hearted – has our inner unicorns bucking with excitement.

The limited edition Full Spectrum palette features 21 colourful shadows – 18 of which are new – which range from the highly pigmented canary yellow ‘Calavera’ shade right down to a shimmery silver called ‘Iced’.

 

Sneak peek of what's to come…say hello to Full Spectrum —21 shades (18 are new!) from bold brights to matte white. #ColorUnleashed #UrbanDecay

Every makeup fanatic knows the sadness that comes with smudging a brand new product for the first time.

But thankfully that shameful feeling could soon be confined to the past as the cosmetic gods have finally gifted us with magnetic eyeshadow.

MAC’s Spellbinder shadows have been magnetised to prevent eyeshadow fallout and will keep the pigments looking picture perfect in their pots no matter how many times you use them.

As demonstrated in the following clip, magnets beneath the product allow the shadow to simply be pushed back into its original wave shape after use so that it always retains its untouched look.

A spokesperson for the brand told The Huffington Post that the Spellbinder range will be available in the UK from December 1, but will only run for a limited period of eight weeks.

The shadows – which come in cobalt blue, cool teal, warm olive, vivid emerald, deep amethyst, rich chocolate, smoky quartz and metallic bronze shades – will go on sale in the US later this month.

We’re seriously big fans of Urban Decay around these parts.

From classic shades such a Gash, Acid Rain, and UV-B, to the more current range, it’s been an additively wonderful two decades of eyeshadow.

And now – hurrah! – a limited edition collection has been released to coincide with the anniversary.

The Vice Ltd Reloaded palette – the sequel of last year’s sell-out, hit Vice Ltd – is a great mix three new shades, five vintage shades, five exclusives from past palettes and seven bestsellers from the brand’s collection of singles.

Let’s face it too – Urban Decay is ALL about packaging. For this reboot, the iconic Vice Ltd case has been used, albeit this time drenched in black and topped it off with a purple jewelled UD icon.

Press the button to unveil the eye-candy inside, along with an oversized mirror and an double-ended brush.

Divine!

 

The limited-edition UD XX Vice Ltd Reloaded palette is priced at €49 and will be available exclusively from Debenhams or online at debenhams.ie from August 4, 2016.
