Congrats Lauren Conrad and William Tell !!!!

Lauren Conrad wed fiancee William Tell, this weekend  in  Santa Ynez, California . The couple had an intimate ceremony surrounded by family and friends.Including her former Hills costar Lo bosworth .

 While no photos of the event were shared yet, Lauren revealed some details about her bridesmaids dresses to Martha Stuart magazine. (She’s on the Fall cover ) The beautiful bride shared : “I sent them all the different shapes and let them pick from two colors. I don’t mind if there are a few girls in the same dress, or if people are all in different ones. It’s too difficult to take a group of girls and put them in the same color and silhouette; everyone has their own style.” (The dresses were made by LC’s brand Paper Crown)

 What do you think of the adorable couple? Who else wishes they could have been a bridesmaid ? Are you a fan of Lauren’s ? Tweet me your thoughts @princesslondn or leave them below and don’t forget to follow me on here and on Twitter if you like my posts.

 As part of announcing the line BrandBacker send me one of the kits to review for my awesome readers . I got the Up All Night Collection. (While this is a sponsored post all opinions are my own.)

 The Eyeshadow palette contains the shades - More Than This – Gotta Be You – Save You Tonight – Another World – Up All Night . I like that you can create a smoky eye with these or just go for a sheer wash of color. And the fact that all you need is warm water to take them off is a major bonus. I didn’t like the brush it came with, it’s one of those drugstore sponge tip and cheap brush applicator and the textures of the shadows were a little chalky in my opinion. If they fixed those two things I can see these shadows being a major hit with teens and adults. What makeup lover doesn’t want a shadow you can rinse right off?

  Mascara - “Little Black Dress” and it is surprisingly good . I am very picky when it comes to mascaras as most of them irittate my eyes. This one gets extra points for not doing so. While the brush is nothing fancy just your typical drug store brush it does a good job of seperating and elongating lashes.

  Eyeliner/shadow pencil -‘Stand Up’ I was very unimpressed with it. It’s to thick to be an eyeliner and when I tried to use it as a shadow the tip broke off. And the fact that you need a sharpener for it makes it loose it’s appeal. I will give it props for the color though. It’s a nice metallic blue.

Lipstick-‘I Should Have Kissed You’ This is described as a bubble gum pink creme lipstick. It does make your lips feel soft when you put it on. But the color comes off more matte than creme. While I like the name and the way it looks in the tube once I put it on the color wasn’t for me.

Lipgloss-“Taken” The gloss claims to glow under uv lights but I haven’t tried it so I can’t confirm it. I wasn’t a fan of the gloss. It felt sticky on top of the lipstick. Though when I used it alone it had a nice sheer sparkly look and didn’t feel as heavy.

Nail Polish-‘Na Na Na’ Is a metallic blue polish. I haven’t gotten the chance to try it , but it looks cool in the bottle.

Stencils- If your headed to a 1D concert these are a great accessory. They are kind of hard to use as they are not adhesive. But with some tape they work fine. Fill them in with the lipstick, eye shadow or any other cosmetic item of your choice for a fun look.

On a scale of 1-10 I rate it a 8 .

The products are pretty good , The design is fun. I do have to take away points for the tin itself. While the outside packaging is fun I would have liked to see the boys picture drawn onto the tin not on the plastic that has to be slid off to open the tin. I also would have liked it to be easier to remove the items from their compartments as they tend to get stuck.
