Review | NEW Smashbox L.A Lights Blush & Highlight Palette

This is what it says on the Smashbox website: Getting a fresh, youthful flush for any occasion just got a lot more low maintenance. We partnered two carefully curated, tonal shades of blush with their perfectly matched highlighter—so you’ll never have to worry about shades clashing again. Two shades mean you can turn up your rosiness from subtle to dramatic to match any look, occasion or season. These also claim to be long-wearing, richly pigmented blush shades, and they are supposed to stay true to color all day – no […]

Favourites | Top 5 April 2016

  Hello. It’s time for favourites again. Some of these products I may have done a review on previously, if so they will be linked at the end of the post. So this month I’ve been loving my Skindinavia oil-controll setting spray for both locking my makeup into place, and for toning down the powdery look I sometimes get when I use too much powder. This also helps with oil-controll, but it doesn’t keep me matte all day so my oils does start to peek through after a while, but […]

Review | NEW Urban Decay Beached Bronzer

Reading on the back of the product it says: Get beached, not burnt. This finely milled, super-soft powder bronzer applies smoothly, doesn’t streak, and creates a bronzed, radiant glow that won’t quit. Perfect for the face and body, our sheer, natural-looking shades can be used wet or dry. They also say that it’s great for contouring. I have to say that everything this bronzer claims to do, it does. This is so easy to work with, it blends perfectly, and it’s so smooth that I would pet this all day […]

Review | Smashbox Double Exposure Palette

This is what it says on the Smashbox website: State-of-the-art coated pigments make the magic happen. This coating technology creates multiple effects when wet, allowing the shadows to transform in one of four ways. So 14 shadows actually become 28 shades—all in just one palette. (I did build up the swatches in this photo) So, to be honest, one of the main reasons I got this palette is because I haven’t heard too much about it. I know that the ‘Full Exposure’ palette didn’t get the best reviews and that […]

Review | NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams

This is what it says on the NYX website: Now available in twelve more statement-making shades, our velvety smooth Soft Matte Lip Cream delivers a burst of creamy color and sets to a stunning matte finish. Surprisingly durable, lightweight and delightfully creamy, it’s no wonder this sweetly scented formula is a NYX fan favorite. So, I got these because I’ve heard so many good things about them and because they’re inexpencive I thought I’d give them a try, but I have to say that these are some of the worst […]
