Colour Pop Cosmetics Pressed Eyeshadow Review

Good morning Beauties!

I have been purchasing a lot of makeup recently and one of the things i bought a few months ago was the colour pop new pressed eyeshadows. I already had the super shock eyeshadows and loved them so i was excited to try out the pressed eyeshadows.

PRICE:

Guys, these eyeshadows are so cheap. One thing colour pop does right is their prices! Colour pop products are perfect for anyone starting out in makeup and doesn’t want to spend a fortune, or just for those people who love a good quality product for a low price! The pressed eyeshadows retail for $5US on the Colour Pop website – so. cheap. I can never help my self when browsing through the website, i end up with 20 eyeshadows because well, why not!

APPLICATION:

These eyeshadows are so smooth and silky, you can’t even feel the product on your skin! I typically use a soft fluffy brush to apply these eyeshadows to the crease and then a flat stiff brush for the lid, or my finger – whatever I’m feelin that day. Since the product is so soft it really makes application a breeze as it goes on so perfect that its hard to make any mistakes really. I haven’t tried any of the lighter shades so i couldn’t tell you if they come off chalky at all but the darker shades i have purchased are lovely.

Colours Top to Bottom: Made to last, I owe you, wait for it, Making moves, Stay Golden.

PACKAGING:

The pressed shadows simply come in a metal pan that you will need to put into your own palette, i use a z palette to hold mine. So if you don’t have one of these it could be a bother as you will either need to purchase one or, leave the pan in the plastic sleeve it comes in so you don’t risk dropping it and cracking the shadow, or losing it.

OVERALL:

I absolutely LOVE these eyeshadows! since buying these i have used them on a daily basis and i can’t put them down. I will definitely be purchasing more of these and for the price i might just buy every colour available! I do hope they extend the line and bring out more colours in the pressed eyeshadow range.

Thanks so much for reading guys! Check out my Instagram for more beauty and makeup lovin!

Tarte Cosmetics Shape Tape Concealer Review

Hey guys!

Everybody loves a good concealer and has particular things they always consider before purchasing one, it hopes it will be the perfect pick! The Shape Tape Concealer from Tarte is everywhere on the internet at the moment, you can’t miss it! So i thought a review of this concealer will help a lot of people decide if they want to fork out the money to buy it, or not!img_1953

PRICE:

Firstly the price is definitely on the more high end side retailing for $37US on the Tarte website. This may seem a little too much for some people for a concealer but i do feel you get a lot of product out of this as a little goes a long way!

PACKAGING:

The packaging is a simple plastic tube with a twist off lid and a doe foot applicator. Let me tell you, the doe foot applicator is HUGE! It does make it easy to get as much product as you need in one swipe for time poor gals, although i feel like i always end up with wayy too much product on mine and i constantly need to wipe the tip on the edge of the bottle other wise i end up wasting product because i have too much on my face and no amount of blending is going to camouflage that! Another thing that frustrates me about this packaging is that because too much product comes out and i wipe the excess on the tip of the bottle, i end up with concealer all over the twist section of the cap and to me that is such a waste of product. The packaging could be improved.img_1954img_1956

APPLICATION:

This concealer honestly applies like a dream! it is so creamy yet light on your skin, it does not look cakey what so ever yet still gives you full coverage. One thing i struggle with is creasing. Every concealer i use always creases within seconds and i can’t even get in quick enough with a setting powder before the creasing starts, but with the Shape Tape i honestly did not have this problem at all! I was really shocked at how well it sat on the skin without being set with a powder. This concealer also has a light floral scent which is really nice and refreshing while still not being over powering. I picked up the colour Light-Neutral and i found this perfect for my fair skin tone. I use a darker foundation when i fake tan and this still matched perfectly to my darker foundation as well.

WEAR:

I wear this every single day and let me tell you, this baby holds up SO well… its amazing, on my skin it does not crease,slide off, fade, nothing! it just stays perfect how it should be all day. I also applied some of this on my eyelids as i have prominent veins on my eyelids and then eyeshadow over the top of that and it did not effect my eyeshadows wear either which is great. When it comes to the wear of this i honestly have no complaints what so ever.

OVERALL:

If your looking for a full coverage, build able, long wearing, non creasing concealer that you can also use for highlighting AND contouring, then i highly recommend picking this one up! Its totally worth the money and you get a lot of product. I have definitely found my new holy grail concealer! Tate have totally stepped up their game lately with their products and i can’t wait to see what they come up with next!

Have a beautiful day!

Australis Brow Tint VS. Maybelline Brow Drama

Hey Lovelies!

I am a brow addict so using the best brow products means everything to me! So i thought today for something different i would do a mini comparison of two brands brow products that i have tried and tested and give you my honest opinion!

No 1. Australis Cosmetics Brow Tint in “Dark Brown”img_1897

First of all how cute is this packaging?! Its so tiny and retro i absolutely love it! The product comes in a tube with a spoolie attached to the lid which is a standard shape, nothing crazy – I prefer this as its easier to control and apply to your brows. This brow product has a tint of colour as the name suggests which helps fill in and even out your brows, this product is great for anyone with sparse brows. If used on its on you can still achieve a natural shade but if used with a brow powder underneath you can get a really polished off look. The brow tint also styles your brows as it is a gel consistency so it helps your brows stay on point all day long. This product is very buildable making it easy to achieve a darker colour if desired.

 

No 2. Maybelline Brow Drama Sculpting Brow Mascara in “Medium Brown”img_1898

Maybelline’s brow drama is a popular product! I have seen this all over magazines and adds on TV. This product is used to sculpt and shape your brows. You can use this to achieve different looks ranging from perfectly blended brows to fierce fluffy brows. You can use the tip of the spoolie to ‘colour in’ your brows starting from the back end of your brow and working your way forward then use the straight part of the spoolie to comb back your brows into the perfect shape. I personally found the shape of this wand really hard to work with and i made a lot of mess around my brows as i only have fine, small brows.

The Verdict:

For me personally the Australis Brow Tint is the pick of the bunch, it is much easier to work with especially for beginners, and the colour pay off is great and can be built up if needed. I do not enjoy the fact that the Maybelline Brow Drama is so messy to use because of the wand, so i don’t tend to reach for it that often. It is a shame as the shades available are great and very natural looking but the wand just lets this one down.

Whats your favourite brow product of the moment? Let me know in the comments below!

Have a beautiful day!

Review: Sleek Highlighting Palettes

Morning Beauties!

Today I’m doing a review of the cream and powder highlighting palettes from Sleek Cosmetics. I have seen and heard a lot about both of these and i am excited to share my opinions with you!img_1900

Packaging:

The packaging is super sleek and stylish, the powder compact has a reflective gold case with 4 shades inside while the cream compact has a gun metal coloured case and also has 4 shades. Each case comes with an applicator brush to use which is convenient for any one using these palettes on the go or while travelling. There is also a large mirror on the inside of the lid. The exterior is a sturdy case which i feel is good for protecting the product inside  while its in your handbag or makeup case and again for those travelling with the palette.

Product:

Cream – I am not a huge fan of cream anything really as i feel powder is easier to work with, Although these cream highlighters do have a nice colour pay off and seem to be quite long lasting – they dont budge during my 12 hour days which is great! One of the shades in this palette is a powder which is great if you didn’t want to buy the two palettes. There is a nice variety of shades in here including a frosty cream, a pinkish gold, a pale gold and a darker bronze colour. I feel there is a nice range of colours for all skin types to pick from this palette, this would be a great one to add to a makeup artists kit.img_1902

Powder: One thing i love about this highlighting palette is that it is so different to everything else on the market! The colours are not your ordinary gold, pale gold and bronze, Sleek have mixed it up with this one adding a frosty pinkish lavender shade and a coral orange shade – perfect for anyone who doesn’t like to follow mainstream trends and is a unique individual. The colour pay off is great the only thing i don’t really enjoy is there is a lot of glitter in these colours, i prefer a soft shimmer to give a subtle glow. I also feel like the colours are really light once applied so people with tanned or dark skin may find these shades hard to work with as they will give off a frosty colour. This palette again has one cream shade for variety.img_1903img_1906

Overall:

These palettes are super cute and stylish, have plenty of shades for variety so a lot of people can use these and they are really affordable! You can’t really go wrong with it! These palettes would be great for anyone starting out their makeup collection or kit. Have you used these highlighting palettes before? If so, whats your Favourite shade?

Thanks for reading, have a lovely day!

REVIEW: The Body Shop Body Butter

I don’t know about you but moisturising has become part of my night time skincare routine, without it i feel dry and uncomfortable! I have tried so many moisturisers on the market and i have become very particular about which ones i use for certain things. The body shop sell a number of different body moisturiser options but today i will be reviewing the infamous Body Butters. img_1894

The Body Shop is known for its Body Butters, and for good reason! They have a beautiful range of textures and scents to please every body, i picked up Strawberry (one of my all time favourites) and Frosted Berries which is from their Christmas line.

Texture/Consistancy:

These body butters are a heavy cream, when you rub it in you can feel your skin soaking it up and it also last quite a while. I dislike using creams that my skin drinks up and leaves my skin feeling no different to before i applied cream, but that is not the case with the body butter. Your skin is left feeling nourished and silky smooth – just what i need! A little goes a long way with this product so the regular size tub will last you quite a while, i would say 3 months as an average.

Each Body Butter is labelled with a specific skin type for which it would suit, this is just a guide and you can use any of the range but if you are looking for something lighter, go with the body butters for “normal skin” if you are looking for ultimate hydration you should opt for the butters which are for “dry skin”.

img_1895

Price:

The Body Butters retail for $29.95AU which some people may find a little higher then they would normally pay for a body lotion but the body shop use quality fair trade ingredients which really shine through in their products. I believe it is well worth the price.

Variety:

There is plenty of variety within the body butter range, everyone will find one that they love! A couple of scents include Shea butter, Coconut, Olive, Moringa and many more!

Overall:

I really enjoy using these body butters, they give me the perfect amount of hydration and leave my skin feeling soft and silky. I find using the body butters while i am trying to maintain a fake tan really helps my tan to fade evenly so i can get the most wear out of it which is always a plus! The scents are true to their name and are not over powering. A great product to have or to give as a gift!

Thanks for reading guys, have a beautiful day!

REVIEW: Alpha-H Liquid Gold

Good morning!

You have most likely heard of Liquid Gold before, it is a cult product in the beauty world and a must have item. Alpha-H have a whole line of products in the liquid gold range ranging from serums to masks. Today i am reviewing the Original Liquid gold, lets go!

What is Liquid Gold?

As quoted from the Alpha-H website “Liquid Gold is a resurfacing treatment that effectively diminishes wrinkles, pigmentation and sun damage. It works like an overnight facial to brighten and revitalise tired, ageing skin and improved the overall appearance of the skin.” – Piece taken from http://www.alpha-h.com in the Liquid Gold product description.

How do you use Liquid Gold?

You simply take a cotton pad and dab a small amount of the product on there, then swipe upwards and outwards all over the face, thats it! There is no need to apply any other moisturisers or serums as the product works best on its own. If you wish to use other products with the Liquid Gold then you surely can, it may not be as effective though. Its recommended to use this product every second day as it does contain Glycolic Acid.

Why should i choose a Glycol Acid Product?

Glycolic acid helps with many things, a few of these include:

Hydration- Glycolic acid will help raise your hydration levels in your skin

Skin Firming – Glycol acid helps to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles and over time firms the skin.

Acne scarring/ pigmentation – Glycolic Acid will help even out your skin tone by softening the appearance of acne scarring or uneven skin tones in the skin

My personal experience with Liquid Gold

At first i was skeptical as per usual but the very first night i used this i woke up the next day and wondered why my skin looked so fresh and smooth ( i suffer from acne scarring and pigmentation) i then remembered i had tried the liquid gold and after that – i was hooked! I also noticed my oil levels in my skin dropped and the oil was controllable when using this. I didn’t feel the need to check my face 20 times a day to make sure i wasn’t gleaming to the gods, Holla my oily skinned gals! Overall i really enjoy this product and did notice a difference in the texture, colour and firmness of my skin. This product is definitely worth re purchasing. If you haven’t tried it and you suffer from any of the above mentioned problems then i highly suggest checking out the Alpha-H website and reading up on their products.

January Favourites

Hey guys! 

Well the first month of 2017 is done and dusted and it went really quickly! I purchased alot of new makeup this month and have spent quite a bit of money, i go in amd out of makeup buying phases and i am deep in one right now! (Lol) lets get started! 

1. The Balm Voyage Palette – The Balm Cosmetics

I have been absolutely loving the pink and orange toned shades from this palette this month, i have worn them nearly every day. These eyeshadows are super smooth and creamy which is good for me because i can get my eye makeup done nice and quick in the morning before work. I also like that this palette has lip & cheek products too! Perfect for travel.
2. Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Full Coverage Foundation – Tarte Cosmetics

This foundation is amazing! It has such good coverage and gives a nice skin like finish while still looking flawless. It has held up well in the heat we have been having here in Aus lately and i rarely need to touch up throughout the day which is a bonus! Seriously cannot put this down at the moment.


3. Shape Tape Concealer – Tarte Cosmetics

 I will be doing a full review on this one so i dont want to talk to much about it but i have used it everyday for the month on January and it has been amazing! 


4. Master Hi-Light Blush in ‘Coral’ – Maybelline

I have been digging the coral shades in all categories this month and blush is definitely no exception! This coral highlighting blush has been ny go to for that natural peach glow. I find i dont need to use a highlighter with this as it does a great job at that too!


5. Princess EDT – Vera Wang

Princess has been my go to scent this month! Its super fresh and long lasting and i cant get enough of it right now! 


Thats all for my January favourites! I have a heap of new reviews coming that i cant wait to shar so stay tuned for those!
