New stuff from House of Fraser

Beauty Confidential House of Fraser Naked Palette 3

A mini beauty haul if you will.

Origins: a brand that is not available anywhere in the Middle East. This upsets me greatly naturally, so I generally turn to House of Fraser or hit the duty-free in the EU to get my fix. I’m particularly fond of the Mega Mushroom line and used the calming mask with much success when my skin was having a pre-pregnancy freak out.

Anyways, I’ve had my eye on the Plantscriptions Powerful Lifting Cream for some time and picked it up in the Beauty Confidential promotion at HOF along with the Naked Palette 3 (yay!).

In a nutshell, when you buy one full-priced beauty item you get 10 quid off the second one and there are a whopping 30 products included in the promotion (including the new YSL and Estee Lauder foundations – the latter of which I should have bought, dammit!). They ship worldwide too and the promotion is running until September 23rd.

Naked Palette 3 has been out for some time as many of you know and I managed to successfully ignore it, until now.  And I’m glad I decided to stop ignoring it because the shades in it are seriously pretty (but definitely on the pink-ish/warm side of things – very different to the previous Naked Palettes). Let’s have a closer look at it below;

Naked Palette 3

I really like the four shades nearest to the black smokey shade and shall pop an eye look up on my Instagram shortly!

As for the Powerful Lifting cream, first impressions are good – it smells divine and has a lovely creamy consistency however, I shall report back with a full review in a few weeks time.

What do you think of the Naked Palette 3? Do you own it already? Also, if any of you already have the new Estee Lauder foundation, tell me honestly – do I need it? Is it as good as everyone says it is? 🙂

    Hello! Firstly thanks so much for this post as had no idea about the promo and the Naked 3 palette has been on my list for ages. The Estee Lauder foundation is the only one I use – it’s amazing and you don’t need much of it to get good coverage.

    I love the Origins plantscription line, particularly the serum…it has done wonders for my skin! I confess, I bought the Naked 3 palette right when it came out and I STILL haven’t used it. Shameful I know, and yet I still keep buying more and more. Makeup problems.

    What a good deal! I don’t own any of the Naked palettes and feel very deprived as a result. This one looks so pretty! Didn’t know there was a new Estee Lauder foundation. I’m obsessed with Double Wear so now I’m very interested in this too! x

    They’re the exact 4 shades I get the most out of too-I am pretty much take it or leave it with the rest. Naked 2 however-all awesome!

    I always stock up on Origins when I go home, love the brand and wish it was available here!
