Boots No7 Summer Edit Limited Edition Face Palette…

Hi, there my lovelies welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty, I’m Teresa.

The No7 Summer Edit Limited Edition Face Palette is literally Summer in a makeup palette…… BUT it’s also very Autumnal too! The colours really are trans-seasonal, in my humble opinion.

This is a cute little palette which sits just nicely in my hand and the mirror lets me see the whole of my face clearly. It’s a shiny black case with the No7 logo in gold on the top. Inside are 4 highly pigmented eyeshadows, 2 matte, and 2 shimmers, the two gorgeous highlighters are in flattering champagne gold tones, the bronzer is shimmery with warm tones, and the blusher is a flattering pink tone for that flushed look that’s so pretty.

Using this palette is such a delight. There’s no fall-out from any of the eyeshadows, and all are so buttery and blendable to the intensity you want. I don’t wear bronzer much, if at all when I do my makeup, but just for the sake of research I applied the bronzer from this palette, and oh it’s so pretty and definitely makes me want to carry on using it. It gave my face a nice warmth it made me look a bit sunkissed because I actually haven’t been out at all and I was looking very very pale. It was easy to use and it blended out beautifully across my face. My favourite product in the palette is actually the pretty pink-toned blusher. It blends like a dream and a little goes a long way, it’s gorgeous. I don’t use much highlighter either, but this one I just applied to just above my cheekbones, not too close to the under-eye area, and a tad above my top lip on the cupids bow to try and make my lips look less thin. This palette really is a new favourite of mine. I’ve been using MUA and Makeup Revolution for years, as I don’t buy high end because I don’t have high-end money, however, this No7 face palette was a bit more than I would usually pay at £18 but for me is worth every penny, I love it! I don’t know how long the Summer Edit palette is available for, you can see it HERE.

I do have a few makeup products to share with you that are by No7, next one being a lip and cheek palette. Did I love it as much as this beauty? Please come back soon to find out.

Thank you for stopping by and reading today, take care of yourselves, sending you lots of love.

Getting the Summer Glow with Technic Cosmetics…

Hey there lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty!

I have got an eyeshadow palette that just spells out the Summer holidays. It’s pretty and vibrant and has Flamingoes on the packaging!

This is the Summer Glow eyeshadow palette by a brand I’ve heard of but never actually purchased before, Technic. Mark picked this up for me in our local Jack’s store. Jack’s is a subsidiary of Tesco.

This gorgeous palette is in a bright pink tin with flamingoes standing all across the top. Inside the lid of the tin is a super mirror that you see the whole of your face in, there’s another flamingo standing in the corner of the mirror. The colours though are a pure joy to behold. Beautiful brights, gorgeous nudes/natural shades. Most are matte but there are a few shimmers in there too. The colours I tried out are so buttery soft and very easy to blend out to the intensity you want. I love that each eyeshadow has been given the name of a favourite holiday destination, my two faves are the final two “Bora Bora” and “Maldives” In fact they are all beautiful colours and I’d love to give those more vibrant shades a go, I must have a play around sometime.

This palette was a beautiful bargain in our local supermarket, I think the brand is available in places like Tesco, Bodycare, and online at Fragrance Direct HERE. Their official website too and is HERE.

Have you tried the Technic brand? Let me know what you’d recommend.

Lacura (Aldi) Naturals Eyeshadow Palette

Hey there lovelies, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

Mark popped into Aldi to do a bit of a top up shop and came home with a really nice eyeshadow palette for me. It’s from the Lacura brand, who are quite renowned to do damn good dupes of the more expensive beauty products out there. This Naturals eyeshadow palette looks very similar to something from Urban Decay methinks. I can’t compare them though, I’ve never used Urban Decay.

With 12 eyeshadows in natural/nude shades and a mix of cool and warm tones, you should be able to create lots of different looks with this one. For me, I thought the shadows are a bit chalky and “bitty” when I dipped my brush in. The lighter shades didn’t give much colour pay off when applied either. I like to apply a wash of a matte cream shade over my eyes before I add colour, don’t ask me why I just do. The darker the colours are the better the payoff seems to be. The shimmer shades come off better than the more matte ones, to be honest. The packaging is pretty nice, the palette itself is plastic and then inserted into a box, and like Urban Decay it has a double-ended brush. The brush actually is a pretty good one, especially the fluffy blending brush which I have been using with all my eyeshadows not just when I use this one. To be honest, wear time isn’t great it fades after a couple of hours, so I wouldn’t choose this one for a long day out. I’ll continue to use just on a daily basis when I fancy putting a face on. It could be ideal for a young person just getting into makeup when there isn’t much of a budget.

Have you tried any of the Aldi Lacura beauty “dupes”? I’d love to know what you think.

Thank you for reading today.






Burning Embers by MUA Makeup Academy…

Hello my lovelies, I’m Teresa, welcome to Elegant Ageless Beauty.

In my attempt to start feeling Springlike I finally got hold of an MUA Makeup Academy palette that I’ve been hankering after since it was launched. This is the Burning Embers eyeshadow palette, and the colours just say Spring and Summer to me. Check this little stunner out!

This gorgeous palette houses 25 eyeshadows, pink and earthy tones from muted to bright, a mix of satin, shimmer and matte. As is usual with MUA these eyeshadows are so pigmented, soft and buttery in texture and easily blendable to an intensity you like. I would wear all the colours in this palette, I may be pushing 58 but that is why I can! I am also going to be colouring my hair Rose Gold soon, and there are many colours in the Burning Embers palette that will compliment my new hair shade. I love this palette!

The MUA Makeup Academy Burning Embers palette is £8.00 on their website HERE. BUT over on the Superdrug website it’s a *star buy* at just £6.00 HERE.

Lots of love, Teresa





Feeling the Heat with MUA Makeup Academy… Fire Vixen Eyeshadow Palette

Welcome my lovelies to Elegant Ageless Beauty..

A lot of bloggers have been getting hot under the collar over the new eye shadow palette to be released by Urban Decay, Naked Heat. I am not able to purchase a palette with  that price tag at the moment, so I decided to treat myself to one of the newest palettes that MUA Makeup Academy have released, and it’s just as “hot” this is the Fire Vixen Palette.

This palette is going to take me through the rest of Summer through to Autumn, Winter and all over the Christmas holidays with these 15 buttery soft glorious eye shadow shades!

Aren’t these colours just fabulous? From pretty nude shades, to bronze, copper, burnt orange and a gorgeous cranberry red, with grey’s and silver and different shades of pink, and 8 of the colours are Matte! The colours that I used on myself (and to be honest I think I will use them more than others in the palette) are the first one on the top row, the cream all over my lid and up to the brow, the fourth one along also top row I applied to the mobile lid, and the last matte shade on the top row I blended into the crease and slightly above to actually give myself the look of a lesser hooded eye. They blend out so beautifully too, this is a gorgeous palette and one I feel I shall be using rather a lot.

You can check this and other such gorgeousness from MUA Makeup Academy HERE.
