Spend vs Splurge : Anastasia Beverly Hills Modern Renaissance eyeshadow palette vs BYS Cosmetics Berries eyeshadow palette.

Hi lovelies!

As you all know, the Anastasia Beverly Hills (ABH) Modern Renaissance palette is probably one of the most sought after palettes of all time. It's a palette I've owned for a while now, and it's truly a beautiful palette with a range of unique, yet wearable shades that will flatter any skintone. It's also a palette that I know many of my readers have had trouble getting their hands on, due to it selling out so quickly.

That's one of the reasons I was so excited when I attended a blog event that BYS Cosmetics held a couple of weeks ago, as I knew that one of their best selling palettes, the Berries palette, was said to be a fantastic dupe of the Modern Renaissance palette. Luckily, we were fortunate enough to receive one in our goodie bag from the event, so I was really excited to try it and report my findings back for all of you!

As the photo shows, both palettes are very similar at first glance, but let's take a closer look and see how close the comparison really is, shall we?

First up, let's talk packaging. Both palettes have a similar colour scheme, but the Modern Renaissance is packaged in a velvet feel cardboard palette with a magnetic clasp while the Berries is housed in a click-shut tin. The Modern Renaissance is also a little shorter and wider than the Berries palette, which bears a striking resemblance to the Urban Decay Naked Palettes (specifically, the 2, 3 and Smoky) in design. In this instance, I have to say I have a personal preference for the Berries packaging; the Modern Renaissance does feel a bit more luxurious but the velvet feel means you have to take extra care not to get it dirty (especially if you are a neat freak like me), and the Berries just feels more sturdy overall.

Lush Cosmetics Mother's Day 2017 Limited Edition Collection!

Hi lovelies,

I can't believe Mother's Day is almost upon us! This year has flown by, I can't believe that we're in May already!

Anyhow, without further ado, let me introduce the latest Lush Cosmetics limited edition Mother's Day collection to you, in case you're still in a dither about what present to choose the most important lady in your life...

I was especially in love with this collection because Lush brought back Yummy Mummy (read my review on that here), which is only my favourite ever Lush Shower Gel of all time! LIKE, REALLY.

Anyhow, without further ado, let's take a look at some of the offerings that were kindly sent my way to share with you all, shall we? I was generously gifted with a total of 7 products, which I'll go into more detail below.
