Review | E.L.F Studio Powder Blush Palette

This is what it says on the E.L.F website: This beautiful blush palette holds 4 gorgeous shades to mix and match throughout the year for a custom blended color. Great for contouring, shading, sculpting, and highlighting, these silky smooth blushes create a beautiful pigmented glow. With a mixture of complimentary matte and shimmer finishes, you can achieve a professional look every time. So, I’ve heard about these palettes for quite some time, but for some reason E.L.F has stopped doing international shipping (I used to be able to order from their website a few years ago), so it’s been a struggle to get my hands on these, but I finally found them in a store in Sweeden, so I thought I’d give them a try too see what all the hype is about. Now, as you can see in the swatches these are very pigmented blushes, so I was a bit scared to try them, thinking they would be too pigmented, but if you just barley tap your brush in there, you will get a light wash of color to your cheeks, so they’re not as scary as they may seem. As far as application goes I do think that these are very easy to work with, they blend nicely and they don’t look powdery or cakey on the skin, and they do also last all day without fading unevenly, or looking patchy. So, in all honesty, I would never […]

Review | Anastasia Beverly Hills Lipglosses

This is what it says on the Anastasia website: An opaque, high-shine lip color. Use Anastasia Beverly Hills Lip Gloss’ flat sponge-tip applicator to deliver intense pigment with precision for an expert finish in a single swipe.

I got 8 shades, 3 creams and 5 metallics, and I have to say that I’m not that impressed with the more cream finishes. Out […]
